Late last night, thousands of people flocked to the Best Buy website to take advantage of glitch that offered $200 Gift Cards for only $15.
A Reddit user noticed the glitch and posted a link to the site around 11pm last night, and the news spread across the internet immediately.
Thousands of people flocked to the website, many buying 10+ cards, expecting to receive $2,000 worth of gift cards for only $150 (that would buy you a nice 4k TV).

Moments later, Best Buy noticed the glitch, and as you could imagine, they had a tough choice. Would they honor the gift cards, or cancel the orders? Best Buy chose an evil third option: charge everyone that purchased a gift card full price. Many disappointed buyers found themselves calling their bank to explain the overdrafts:
