I went to my local "Best Buy" to get a thumbdrive(micro USB Drive) they had on sale.
It cost $75.99-$20.00 "instant rebate" =$55.99.
The young woman who scaned the bar code initially came up with "that will be $150.00". I said no, it is on sale.
She said," oh, there is a rebate, thats the difference".
I said, "NO!, get your manager," She rescanned it and SURPRISE!, it came up $55.99.
The funny thing is I was talking to the guy inline behind me discussing how if you have the add, they give the correct price, if not they don't.
As you might guess, I was holding the add showing the correct sale price.
I am sure this was an uncommon occurance, but it goes to show you need to know what everything you buy costs and estimate the total while still
inline-it will help prevent you from getting ripped off.
