[Best Buy] ASUS 27" Curved LED Monitor (VZ27VQ) $177.40 if you buy 2 or 3 YMMV Price Error?

Bestbuy has the ASUS 27" FHD 60Hz 5ms Curved VA LED Monitor (VZ27VQ) - Black/Icicle Gold on sale for $279.99 ($100 off). They also are running a promo to save $260 if you buy 2, or $390 when you buy 3.

The cost for 1 monitor on sale is $324.30 after eco +taxes and including delivery
Total cost for 2 monitors is $354.80
Total cost for 3 monitors is $532.20

So if you buy 2 or 3, the cost per monitor is $177.40 (delivery, taxes and eco fee in)
So better than 58% off regular price?

If you buy 3, I will take one.
Rule No.1 here: Buy first, Think afterwards.

Cheap, but 1080P is too low for 27" for desktop use, and 27" is too small for TV monitor use, at least IMHO.
But thanks for posting. Maybe somebody has a use case for this.

Ghosting is caused by image persistence problems with the panel. Refresh rate isn't going to help that. Sadly, the way they quote panel response rates (grey to grey) makes the numbers mostly meaningless. To avoid ghosting you have to either find someone running trustworthy image persistence tests on monitors online or test it out yourself.

To sum it up, buy monitors somewhere with a good return policy. Best Buy still allows full refund in 30 days I believe.

It should be automatically applied if you add 2 or more to cart.

The special offer is right above the add to cart button.

No height adjustment either. I don't know, it sound like a 170$ monitor on sale to me and not a price error.
Uh, yeah, I'd like to speak to a Mr. Tabooger, first name Ollie.

Actually it's only 14 days opened, I know because I returned a monitor to BB last month.
Purchase from a trusted RFD (seller & buyer) 100% positive feedback. Your assured for a safe and clean transaction. Located in the York Region. Can ship at your expense if paying by EMT, please no trades-PM is the key!
