On August 12th, BestBuy, the multinational consumer electronics giant faced a “too good to be true” challenge. In error, they posted a 52 Samsung Digital TV for sale at $9.99 on their website . On the surface, this is a simple story. Yes, a too good to be true story. However, there are several additional currents that should be challenged and investigated.

Bad press for Best Buy

I just heard of a hotel that put a hotel room up for one cent - and people have booked up to 2 years in advance. That hotel is going to swallow the loss - 200k Euro - since they made the mistake. Best Buy should have done the same thing.

Lots of lessons in this article! I am surprised that BestBuy didn't just eat the cost for those hours that they had the wrong price up. Sure it is big bucks. For a company that size they can write it off as a lesson learned.

The twelpforce at BestBuy didn't connect the dots?
