Best Buy Think GF6 Is Made of Gold



I was just browsing Best Buy's website to see if they had any good deals and found just the opposite...

GF6 with 14-42 is listed at $1932.59 here :eek:

That must be the special gold plated model that comes with a silk neck strap lol.

Back in the dotcom days there was this place called "Netmarket" that offered a 200% price match guarantee and at the time my Mastercard offered 100%. I'd specifically surf the NetMarket site looking for overpriced items. My biggest score was a Fuji S1 that was $1000 more than the competitors, I ended up with that the camera for less than a grand, then promptly flipped it. Good times. Too bad best buy doesn't do that kind of price matching.

Sounds like a scam operation. BestBuy is pretty dumb to allow these types of retailers to advertise through their domain because you get exactly what the OP thinks.... that its a retail operation attached to the BB name.


I wasn't even aware that Best Buy was allowing third party sellers like Amazon. If you can't depend on the company name, might as well just shop Amazon or ebay. It is things like this that will put the nail in Best Buy's coffin soon to come.
