The iPhone X.

You already know the iPhone X isn’t cheap. With a $999 starting price, it’s the most expensive model Apple has ever made. But if you decide to buy one from Best Buy, it’s even more expensive.
Best
Buy is charging $100 more than any other retailer for the iPhone X,
customers discovered as preorders became available on Friday. The 64 GB
model cost $1,099 at Best Buy, instead of the standard $999 price, and
the 256 GB model is going for $1,249 (normally $1,149).

When asked why Best Buy was charging more, a company spokesperson gave a mind-numbing answer to Bloomberg:
“Our
prices reflect the fact that no matter a customer’s desired plan or
carrier, or whether a customer is on a business or personal plan, they
are able to get a phone the way they want at Best Buy. Our customers
have told us they want this flexibility and sometimes that has a cost.”
If
you want to buy an iPhone X, we suggest having flexibility too. Choose
from any of the numerous retailers that won’t charge you $100 more for
the phone.
Meanwhile, Best Buy is getting roasted by angry consumers on social media channels like Twitter:

Some of the comments on BestBuy’s Facebook page were pretty brutal too:
