Let it be known: the name "Best Buy" itself is false advertising
But this takes the cake. It's one thing to cancel customers' orders because of a website mistake, which people complain about from time to time on Deals Woot. Store X posts a product with an erroneous price, people swarm to buy it, and what person who understands business will insist that the store honor a clear error? When Home Depot's site some months back featured a large washing machine for $150, of course that wasn't the true price, and orders were necessarily canceled. "If it's too good to be true."
Best Buy, however, made it a point to advertise these prices, and there was nothing until the recent cancellation e-mails to indicate the products were out of stock. Good lord. "Game on, Santa"? People would have done better to believe in Santa delivering the products.
