Bizarre. Maybe It Was In A Lookalike Best Buy Store


WaPo: “Best Buy Web Site Pricing Probed“:
“Best Buy is under investigation by Connecticut’s attorney general after consumers complained they were denied deals found at the electronic retailer’s Web site by store employees who pulled up a lookalike site that listed higher prices on some merchandise.”
Update: Engadget comments, quoting Best Buy that this was an intranet. I wonder if the sites were identical not to deceive, but, assuming that the intranet site served as a ‘beta’ or ‘draft’ or ‘mock up’ for the public site, many pages would be identical to the public site, and some employees may have been genuinely confused themselves about the relationship between the public and private sites. Just speculating.
