Re: Price Gouging at Best Buy

I have nothing against trying to negotiate to get a lower price. In fact, Best Buy has a clear policy that allows you to get a lower price if you find it elsewhere.
The reason, I presume, that Costcos price is not matching is because it's a "club" price.
In the end, if Costco's price is better, then buy it there!
Shame on you for returning the Costco one to Best Buy. Shame on you for using the word "rape" (or a variant of it).
And shame on you for calling this "gouging." It's not. You were free to shop at several other stores, both B&M and online. As such, not gouging.
But shame isn't something that I suspect you feel.
Let's only hope that you included your real name on this e-mail and BestBuy decides to reject your return as fraudulent.
