You order one iPad from Best Buy, but you receive five, what do you do? While most folks would've simply kept them and denied ever seeing those other four devices, Alexa went the good Samaritan route and attempted to contact the company. When she didn't receive a response, Alexa went on to make sure she wouldn't find herself in any legal trouble for keeping the additional iPads. As it turns out, according to the FTC site, if you receive something in error, you can consider it a gift.
Still, Alexa went the extra mile and got in touch with the Consumerist. They responded to her inquiry with the following message:
Good afternoon, Alexa. Laura, from the Consumerist, contacted us here at Best Buy on your behalf. First and foremost, I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your honesty. That is so rare in this day and age and I sincerely thank you! We here at Best Buy acknowledge that we obviously made a mistake, but in the spirit of the holidays, we encourage you to keep the additional iPads and give them to people in need -- friends, family, a local school or charity.
Well, it looks like Alexa's going to pull out her best Oprah impression on Christmas: "You get an iPad! You get an iPad!"
