Best buy have a reputation as "overpriced" on products.

 

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/6-usb-2-0-a-b-cable/9695523.p?id=1218151630945&skuId=9695523&st=usb cable&cp=2&lp=15

a simple 6' usb cable cost $24.99
Microcenter: $5

Fry's $3.97

Amazon: $2.54
Neweg: $2.29

 

HDMI Cable, Best Buy:

As an employee before I was told by my managers to "lie" customers: "oh yah because it's a better quality." but in reality all best buy employees know the quality between a $50 cable and a $5 cable is exactly the same. besides as a previous best buy employee, i know how much best buy receive these cables for anyways.

Please drop the price to a more reasonable price so best buy will get some reputation back?

This is a strategy tbey make alot of profit on the add ons/accessories from impulse buyers, people who buy the primary electronic & accessories at the same time & on bad shoppers.

I too would like to see the prices dropped to more reasonable levels. Heck, I can go to the CVS across from my home and buy a 6ft USB cable for $10. I've also got Big Lots and Five Below, which sell cables and such for hardly anything or I can go to one of the discount stores like Ross or Marshalls, where they sell the same HDMI cables as Best Buy for a fraction of the cost.
