Best Buy In Texas Says Charging $42 For Water Was ‘Big Mistake’
A Best Buy store in Cypress, Texas, a Houston suburb, was charging $42 for a case of Dasani water that usually costs between $15 and $25.
A Best Buy representative told Business Insider the pricing was “a big mistake” caused by an employee who supposedly mistakenly priced the case of water by multiplying the price of one bottle.
The Best Buy location has closed because of Hurricane Harvey.
The Best Buy rep. added:”As a company we are focused on helping, not hurting affected people. We’re sorry, and it won’t happen again.”
