This Amazon typo makes it seem like you’re saving over $2,400 on a Garmin


Oftentimes, we scour the internet to find the best deals for you. Sometimes we come across deals that are too good to be true, while other times the deals are correct, but a minor typo makes a sale price flabbergasting. 

According to Amazon, the Garmin DriveSmart 61 NA LMT-S advanced navigation GPS is on sale for $189.99, or a whopping $2,410 off its list price. This is a staggering 93% off its retail price of $2,599.99. Now spending $2,600 on a GPS device is, let’s say, excessive. 

This is a costly typo.
