Boxing Day sales in Canada are a close second to Black Friday sales in the US in terms of a shopping frenzy. Each year during the online Boxing Day sales, I typically purchase a new portable external hard drive to backup the year's worth of images, video, and other personal data and store it in a fire-proof safe. Best Buy Canada has had perennial challenges keeping up with Boxing Day demand and their online waiting queue has been in place for several years. This year though I was surprised to see a difference in the e-mail I received about my purchase ($99.98) vs the online order details ($69.99). The pricing was wrong in the e-mail I received and I immediately went to check the online order details, which was correct. I'll have to double check actual charges on my credit card once the item ships.
Frustrated Shopper Suggestion
Make sure to test order e-mails to make sure the amounts are correct. Shopper may receive multiple e-mails as the order is placed, shipping is confirmed, and payment is captured. If any of those e-mails are incorrect, the shopper may call the Call Center increasing your order handling costs.
That's all for now. Gotta go shopping!
