Deal Details

Last Edited by matchnbpm March 3, 2013 at 09:29 AM
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

People should pm the ad and stop discussing anything beyond frys and its ad. Y would you discuss the package, if it says blk controller?
Why engage in sale, high jacking? Or, major skeptism? Retailers are selling ps3 items at deep discounts and clearance. BB actually clearanced Sony 3d glasses for $7.99/9.99.

Besides, when I see someone trying to decifer a retailer's sale, I question his/her intent? Buy the item described or not. Why troll or incite some conspiracy theory, as if the sale is a misprint? I believe many are trying to sabatoge any sdeal they can not scheme or purchase or it's a BB mole trying to find a way to not pm any legit deal.
Its obvious.

bb has controllers on sale this week for
$44.xx. There are blue boxes and none of them are singled out as being opted out.

Won't Amazon PM this? I'm too lazy to read through 10 pages of thread to find out.

I don't even know if this deal is worth the trouble. I hate dealing with BB employees. At least the one near me, it's always a hassle to price match or to get something that should be on sale. They always act like I don't know what I'm talking about and I have to almost barter with them for a half hour.

Worked in Reston, VA no problem. Had a print-out of the Frys.com page and a print-out of best buy's new policy that the OP linked to.

With best buy price matching amazon and newegg I might actually start shopping at Best Buy again. Also no tax there as well since I can just stop by one in portland or on my way home from work :p

PS4 is coming out this year. I'm not sure if these controllers are going to work with the new console or not. Consider that when buying anything PS3. That aside, for $20 per controller, it's a very nice deal.

Maybe u dont even look at the ads or try to search for ps3 controller on frys. The only controller listed $19.99 is the black one. The other colors r still $59.99. This looks like s price mistake or ads mistake (if it existed). I couldnt find it on printed ads. Its more like someone suddently "found" it by a search engine. This is way below cost. Frys must be crazy to sell it at this price. They must explain that to their competitors. Bestbuy must be very dumb not to come up with any good excuse to refuse this. Its just that this is the best time when their first pm policy released. Most of them r not so clear about ut yet. So they just pmed it anyway. I am sure this wont happen again in the near future. The dumbest way to pm is without calling the actual store or .com sites to verify if the price is real and if they have it instock. Bed. Bath and beyond has the best way to handle it. They always call to verify. This is also the best way to refuse any customers u dont like to pm.

PM success at San Diego/Mira Mesa BB, nearest We luckily have 2 Frys in san diego about 10 miles apart from other BB's. Took 8 min. Associate was shocked saying "why is it so cheap?!" ,Double checked Frys.com and was OTD a happy camper.

I got black since the AD said BLACK specifically. I wanted a blue or camo, but I think color is definetly based on luck. TU OP!
wtf i tried at that store earlier and was denied. after the guy called the manager over for an override, the manager called frys to verify stock and they dont have that item number in stock. i might try again later and hope the manager i got yesterday isnt working.

I'm not sure why people even bring up that the DS3 will/will not work with the PS4. Since when is that a big deal? Very few previous gen controllers work with next gen systems and others that do, do so with 3rd party adapters. The fact is, $20 for a new DS3 is a good deal in the current market.

Its time for you to get over yourself. Go to the site and scroll through the 237 items of sony game products and you will see it<blk controller>. Getting another color is not listed but ymmv. Also, there are numerious ps3 controller brands ranging, $19.99-24.99. Maybe, you should buy one of those at frys or not. BB has pm'ed walmart/target, etc., for years and some stores call and others match the site. Amazon.com, frys.com were matched in my district since last year and neither is in my state. So, calling is stupid but BB can do whatever. I just report it and go to walmart. I know, its a legit price match.

But, you are trudging in sky is falling, victim mentality. On frys site, the ps3 3d glasses are 69.99.BB sold those glasses for 9.99- 14.99 after Nov. 2012. Im sure that nationwide sale was a fake or sale mistake by your standards. No way could it be...blah, blah... Maybe, its time for you to skip PMING or sdeals forums. Its too much for you to handle
EDIT* customers actually went to a frys and purchased the product at 19.99. Reread through the pages.

this item is not on their weekly printed or mainpage .com ads.
its more like a limited promotion or price mistake.
item # is not for PS3 controller.

Note: it does say in-store only and while supplies last. Bingo...again, y are people having an issue with interpreting. Smh,
do people only shop an ad vs the website from time to time. Do people only walk in the game/ movie section of BB or do the whole store on occassion? its called shopping and comparing pricings. Hell, some people have a spreadsheet of ongoing clearances over in the home depot thread so, this is kindergarden shopping compared to those sdealers.

LoL
