Deal Details

Since the past two PS3 deals on here, Ive been looking to buy an extra controller fro my new PS3. Checking different sites, I ran into frys.com ad:

http://www.frys.com/product/55522..._PGhttp://

Even though I dont have a frys close to me, I remembered that Best Buy starts their new price match policy TODAY! Which states:

"At the time of purchase, we will match the current pre-tax price for new, identical, immediately available products from a local retail competitor’s store and these designated major online retailers: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, Frys.com, hhgregg.com, HP.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com, Newegg.com, OfficeDepot.com, OfficeMax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, TigerDirect.com and Walmart.com."

found here: http://pr.bby.com/best-buy-ends-s...guarantee/


Going to take a shower and head on over to my local BB for a 'price match' Wink

Post successes:
  • Seattle, WA - Northgate 03/04/13 (don't go back)
  • West Hartford, CT. Success.- Best Buy
  • Tustin, CA - 03/03/13- Success.
  • Columbus, OH - Polaris - Success.
  • Jonesboro, AR - Success - Best Buy
  • Lithonia, GA - Success - Best Buy (at customer service, limit to 1)
  • Clearwater, FL - Success - Best Buy (showed them the PM policy and they did it)
  • Fort Myers, FL - Success - Best Buy (showed them the PM policy and they did it)
  • Mayfield Heights, OH - Fail - Best Buy (since Frys is not a "local competitor", manager would not PM)
Are these^ for PM or Fry's successes?
-I'm assuming Best Buy.

After visiting a Fry's with "All Items Available", rep indicated that the SKU resembles that of a low-stock older clearance model. 3/7/13

This should be interesting....I think the best buy employee will not price match as it is in store only and not available for delivery.

What does thay have to do with anything??? A bestbuy can be located 5 miles from the frys store and what...they will refuse the price match? I can see a call into bb for a pm and delivery having a possible, MUCK-up but not a walk in...Go buy the product.

I would go now and buy this item but I do not need another with controller.

I think he is referring to places where there is no Frys. Like Florida.

Success!

I went into my store (Sterling, VA) at 11am when they opened. Went over to the PS3 isle and there were no black controllers to be found. Bummed, I started looking at the end caps and finally the Demo area, where I found a stack of them! Took one to the front register and told the guy "I heard about your new Low Price Guarantee policy that started today" and he said yep, "Frys.com, one of the merchants you have listed, has this on sale for 19.99" I showed him my phone, I let him know it was listed for in-store purchase only and I was in-store at best buy. He wasn't exactly sure how the new policy worked so he went to speak with his manager. After a few mins of talking, they said yes, the price match is within the new policy since frys.com is part of their approved merchants to pricematch. I was limited to only getting the black version and I was only able to get one according to their new price match guarantee..

Ill upload a copy of my receipt in a bit...

Yay!

(11:37am...typing on my way to the car)

walked into BB, picked up a blk controller, then went to the counter. Asked" if they wanted me to print a bigger page at the kiosk or will my phone be ok to view, frys.com?" Clerk reviewed it, then summoned manager. She scrolled the page and signaled, ok. Now, during this time, im having a chat about ps4 coming out. Wink

She did ask, "where was the nearest frys"? I said, "duluth but the new policy is frys.com?" She smiled before I turned to leave.

VA area code 23111 19.99 + 1.00 tax=$20.99

You guys can not be so swayed without an actual walk in or two. Some managers do know the policy. Now, I have to return this b4 60 days but I did need to go to bb.
