I think that google isn't saying something like, "these sites have big bucks so they get a pass."
No. But may be they are saying "BestBuy ranking high for the electronics related keywords is a good user experience, and who cares how BestBuy gets there"?
And me, having a hard time competing with BestBuy in the organic search - I hate to admit it but if BestBuy is not on the first page for the "televisions" query - that's a poor user experience, whether they follow the G guidelines or not.
