First we have KFC who does not honor coupons, now it is BEST BUY
Retailers seem to be using a new sales approach now, WE WILL OFFER THINGS FOR FREE OR AT AN ALMOST FREE PRICE TO DRAW YOU IN. KFC, did it with their grilled chicken, that we later find is cancer causing ingredients. Now BEST BUY, used almost the same approach. Theirs is a 52' colored t.v. for $9.99 on their web site. The electronics retailer said it will not honor the $9.99 price posted Wednesday morning on its Web site for a 52-inch Samsung flat-screen TV. By early afternoon, the TV was listed at $1,799.99, almost half off the original $3,399.99 price And of course this was an ad misprint according to BEST BUY, people who had purchased the t.v. on line for $9.99 were refunded their money back and to every one's surprise, of course Best Buy does not have a comment nor did they return any phone calls. Should BEST BUY be surprised that their stock has now dropped 24 cents. Should not it and KFC"S and other stores that wished to prey on giving you something for nothing or almost nothing be held accountable for playing on the hopes of the American People. Should they not be forced to honor their word what they have in print. Do we sue them for what they have promised or do we boycott them, so that they not only feel a 24 cent drop in stock but a going out of business sign as well. That would be wonderful if it was not for the already climbing rate of unemployment in the United States.

The Government should force Best Buy to Honor their Deal .And if Best buy doesn't people need to sue their behinds.
