    I preordered a 16GB TouchPad last month and picked it up on the 1st when it was released. On Saturday, I decided to upgrade to the 32GB one so I took the old one back and exchanged it with no problems. The next day, I got a call from Geek Squad telling me "my TouchPad was in and ready to pick up", and I figured it was just a mistake on their part but asked what I needed to pick it up, and was just told my ID. I went to Best Buy, asked about it, they went and got it from the back. It turns out it was the one I had preordered and they asked for the $450. I said "you know this came out almost a month ago, right? I picked mine up the first day" and he got confused and pulled another employee over to check it out, mentioning it was just the preorder but I had already paid. He pulled up my receipt on the computer, and I'm not sure what he was thinking (must have thought that I sent mine in for repair), but he just gave me the TouchPad, printed a receipt, and I walked away with a brand new 16GB TouchPad to add to my collection.

    I'll be preordering from Best Buy more often

    Agreed. How is this not stealing? Like when the math challenged McDonald's employee gives you too much change. YOU know it's wrong. Stealing is taking something without paying. They didn't say, "here, it's on us" did they?

    Poorly played.

    This is not a topic to brag about. Its stealing if you know you got something you didn't pay for because of someone elses oversite. In the end the consumer pays because Best Buy needs to find a way to make up for its losses. The next time I pay my credit card bill and see an increase in fees, I'll be thinking of you.

    Not to mention the developers out there that are busy making apps, so they can sell them.....so they can BUY a TouchPad.

    It's your conscious and karma.....you'll deal with it eventually.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    I didn't really think about it like that, now I just feel bad. I guess I just got so excited that I wasn't really thinking about it. I think I'll be returning it now.

    The Mcdonalds example was what really got to me, but the other points were valid, especially the developers. Plus, I really hope that employee didn't get in trouble now that I think about it. I'm on my way to return it now.

    You owned up to your mistake and now you're on your way to make it right. You're OK in my book. And I know you won't let it happen again. You've done the right thing.
