Yeah, so my Nexus ended up being free due to some technical fluke, or more than likely, human error.
I upgraded through Best Buy because they allow you to pay with PayPal, and I utilize their BillMeLater services. So naturally I used this so I could get my Nexus ASAP, planned to pay it off with my income tax return. So I order the phone, and my only option is in-store pickup. No big deal, the closest Best Buy is like 5 minutes away. I anxiously wait for the email confirming that my phone is ready to be picked up. It takes about 30 minutes to receive the email, and as you can imagine, I bolt out the door when I do get it. I get down there and the guys working Best Buy mobile seem unfamiliar with the in-store pickup process, but one of them gets me my phone and sends me on my way. I opted to set it up at home online myself, as I had some phone switching to do for my brother.
So now I have my beautiful Nexus in hand, but for the last week I had still been getting emails telling me to go pick up my order. I already picked up, so I just ignore it, figuring it's some mistake. But today, I get an email from both PayPal and Best Buy. PayPal tells me Best Buy sent me a refund of $317. Best Buy tells me that my order has been cancelled and I am being refunded. Sooooo, due to some type of error, I received this beautiful phone for free. Now some of you may think, "You should probably be honest and tell them about the mistake." But think, would you do that if you were in the same situation? Ha ha ha.
Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
