My Mom Ordered One iPad And Best Buy Sent Five

The Consumerist: Alexa’s boyfriend got an iPad for Christmas from his mother. Well, that’s not quite true. His mother ordered one iPad, and had it shipped to him. What arrived on their doorstep was a very large and heavy box that was big enough to hold five iPads. Because it did. (Best Buy, Culture, Gadgets, iPad)

.. Now I'm just going to be honest - if this happened to me I would sell those babies so fast... -LoL

Or if I was in a really good mood then Christmas at my house would have the best Christmas presents ever... -:) you get an ipad!, and you get an ipad..! -LoL

As far as Best Buy I'm sorry but, you know the rules Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers...

(I don't see best buy calling me up and saying, "oh you know that HDTV you bought from us last year that we seriously over charged you for -some would say robbed you blind, sorry about that here is the difference.")

-So, No if they didn't feel bad about robbing me blind, then no I don't feel bad about returning the favor -:) LoL

Too bad such a policy doesn't work with the bank. If they accidentally give you too much money and you spend it, you gotta repay it :(

Then I would say Good thing this happened at Best Buy and not your local bank... LoL

Can you imagine getting that call from your bank saying, "you know those 5 ipads you got from us by mistake" you now owe us.. $1996.00 for the one's you didn't pay for.. Ouch!

How about just being honest? I know is very tempting, but nothing better than doing the right thing!

Your example about buying an overpriced tv at BB is not valid, as far as I'm concerned BB doesn't not put a gun on customer face and make them buy products there. Nowadays there's no excuse not to do a little research to find the best price!

Oh and I do not care for BB, I haven't shop there in years :-)

yeah but I wasn't talking about now, I was talking about a long time ago when Best buy was robbing people blind, like the time when they got busted for making a fake website that they go to from the store to show you the price is the same as online...

Trust me Best buy has done more then their fare share of dirt...


I mean you can just search google and I'm sure you will find a ton more of things best buy did dirty..

So when you say why not just be honest, I was thinking the same thing, just tell that to Best Buy, they seem to have forgot all about that..

-and they have been doing customers dirty for years..
