The iPad is on sale!
It’s a Memorial Day BONANZA at Best Buy.
Or is it?
Check your email. You probably have an email flyer from the big-blue-and-yellow-box store declaring a Memorial Day Sale — with an iPad starting at $499.
Thing is, that is the original, everyday price of the iPad.
Best Buy also advertises L.A. Noire for Xbox 360 for $59.99, which is also the original MSRP.
What’s on sale? Well they have “City Slickers” on Blu-ray for $9.99.
Oh, and 20 percent off ink and toner … but that’s only for Wednesday. Sorry, Memorial Day shoppers.
In fact, one of the only “sale” products listed, after clicking the “sale” link on the flyer is a really just awful Coby 32-inch LCD television for $249.99, which is hilarious considering that Best Buy also sells a really amazingly good Sharp 32-inch LCD HDTV for $329.99.
This isn’t exactly “Extreme Couponing.”
