I could have gotten it cheaper from buy.com but I didn't want to wait.
How curious, that is almost exactly
what happened to me yesterday!
The day before I received an email from Best Buy with a couple of Rewardzone coupons attached. One was for $20 off the regular price of a WD TV Live HD media player - not
the Live Plus.
When I went to BB I found an interactive display of the WD TV Live HD with several boxed WD TV HD units ready for sale, but no WD TV Live. I asked and no one knew anything about the Live version, let alone the Live Plus.
One salesperson even checked online and neither the Live or Live Plus were on Best Buy's Web site, only the WD TV HD.
I too wandered around the HDD section and surprisingly, exactly like you
, found one lone Live Plus unit
setting next to several more of the WD TV HDs. Nowhere was there any indication that either the Live or the Live plus were supposed to be on the shelf, i.e., there were no shelf tags with a price.
When I went to checkout, the Live Plus scanned at $139 and I suppose since the the coupon I had was for the Live and not the Live Plus SKU, the register would not accept my coupon... that or the coupon was not in the system yet. Either way, as it turned out, it didn't matter because the floor manager gave me the twenty dollar discount anyway.
I just found it odd that we both found a single lone Live Plus at Best Buy after no one there seemed to even know what it was.
