Okay, so there's really isn't a 5-for-1 deal at Best Buy... I may have exaggerated-- slightly. The TRUE story is that a woman named Alexa ordered an iPad online as a Christmas for her son. Upon receiving the order in the mail she realized that they had sent FIVE iPads instead of ONE! Alexa contacted Best Buy to report their error and was told by a representative for the company that there was nothing that he could do because the system only showed her as receiving one. Alexa contacted a website called the Consumerist to tell her story. Once the Consumerist contacted Best Buy with this story Alexa received a letter from the company stating:
"Good afternoon, Alexa –
Laura, from the Consumerist, contacted us here at Best Buy on your behalf. First and foremost, I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your honesty. That is so rare in this day and age and I sincerely thank you!
We, here at Best Buy, acknowledge that we obviously made a mistake, but in the spirit of the holidays, we encourage you to keep the additional iPads and give them to people in need – friends, family, a local school or charity.
I have not shared this resolution with Laura, as you are the customer, but it is up to you if want to let her know the outcome of your discussion.
Thank you so very much for coming forward and I hope your son enjoys his new iPad. Merry Christmas!"
Not long after this story aired ANOTHER person named NICK came forward to admit that he had received 5 iPads as well! I'm not sure if Best Buy responded with the same cheerful letter but I have a pretty good feeling that someone-somewhere lost their job for it! TAKE THE POLL BELOW TO LET US KNOW:
