I visited BestBuy in Mt.Vernon, NY on Saturday, February 6, 2010 to purchase an iPod speaker system.
The unit I was interested in was the Altec Lansing iM600 which retails online beginning at $93 (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=altec+lansing+speakers+ipod&ved=0CCYQrQQwAA&cid=9935463608728629115&sa=title#p). When I asked the salesperson if they carried this model he said they did not have it in stock and then showed me another Altec Lansing model (Altec Lansing inMotion) that he said was the model below the one I was originally looking for but was only $49, which is clearly what the price tag on the item indicated. When I went to the register to pay for the item I was told that the item was incorrectly tagged and the price was $149. After speaking to the department manager and then the store manager, they refused to honor the $49 price.
I was happy to return home to purchase the same unit online for less then $100.I am not a legal expert in the laws governing mispriced items but I was under the impression that it was the retailers responsibility to honor items as they are priced.
