I was able to PM to Fry's at a Best Buy in the DC Metro Area. They questioned Fry's at first (Isn't that the place in California?), but they checked their documents and Frys.com was listed and they PM'd no issues.
Tomb Raider (X360) - $1
GTA V (X360) - $18
This deal is decent. With tax it's like $185-$190. But if you buy for $199.99 at walmart.com, there's no tax with free shipping, and you get a $20 walmart gift card, effectively making the total cost $179.99. So walmart would still be a little better since pretty much anyone can find $20 worth of stuff at walmart they can buy. more games, bathroom stuff, etc
The Walmart deal is okay. Online retailers are required to charge sales tax in a state where they have a physical presence (Law might change requiring all online retailers to charge sales tax if they have more than a certain dollar amount in Internet sales)
Even with that, you are still required to pay sales tax at filing time on anything purchased in which you weren't charged sales tax by the retailer, although this is rarely if ever enforced.
On top of that, price matching BestBuy and use of BB rewards gets you 70% the way to a $5 voucher
So at 5% Sales tax, all things taken into consideration, A BB PM is costing $0.25 more than the WalMart online only version for instant gratification. Fry's is costing less than $4 more for the same style store pickup. Both assuming 0% Tax at WalMart online
WM -- $199.99 + (assuming 0% Sales tax) - $20 WMGC = $179.99 (Wait for item)
BBPM -- $174.99+(~5% Sales Tax $8.75) - (70%/$5 Reward Cert $3.50) = $180.24 (Pick up in store - gas cost varies)
