Just because you see something advertised as a sale, it does not make it a sale. Just like everything you read on the internet is not true. The Consumerist reports that Best Buy seems to have begun advertising some laptops at prices that are higher than their regular price. Then they go ahead and take it one step further by placing “as advertised” signs on the laptops in the store, giving consumers the impression that they’re getting a sweet deal.
No, that ain’t right. But shoppers also need to be alert and not so trusting. A tipster specifically mentions laptops like the Dell and HP models advertised for $649.99 and $699.99 in the ad pictured above, which are $20 and $50 higher than their regular price. Other previous laptops advertised at higher prices also now seem to have gone back to the regular price.
