order & return if it doesn't look as pretty as advertised?
Re-stocking fees replaced with annoying online customer service problems (which from my experience are way worse than in stores), ability to view a number of TVs at once in a showroom, instead of one at a time, time spent returning, ability to personally look at markdowns/clearance items to see if you want them - am I leaving anything out?
There's being frugal, and there's being obnoxiously cheap, please learn the difference. Also if you find yourself getting into heated arguments online about things like lossless audio, re-assess your life.
Best Buy stores to match Amazon's prices through the holidays
This might make those dictator store managers think twice about making up BS reasons. If you're daring enough to PM at bestbuy again, we all know what that entails, this time corporate has got your back.

”The lower prices will be matched at the discretion of Best Buy staffers on the sales floor”
This is a step in the right direction, but it looks like they can choose to decline to price match. Also, taxes can be a big factor. Ex: buying an hdtv costing $500 but taxes adding maybe another ~$45.. Where you'd most likely get free shipping with Amazon.
Thx for the HU OP! I like what the article said about matching 20 retailers and free shipping....... don't like this part though:
The lower prices will be matched at the discretion of Best Buy staffers on the sales floor,
Personally, Im hoping Best Buy can turn things around, cause if they are knocked out, Amazon will have free reign to do as they please, and that can lead to things that buyers are not in favor for. As long as their is some competition, the buyer has choices, allowing Amazon and Best Buy to provide better services overall.
