Just found this in stock in a best buy nearby. Called 888-BESTBUY , price matched from sears, and placed a pick up order. Thanks SD!

Not sure how you guys are getting this, I went in-store and BB wouldn't price match, the manager was rude, the employees were rude, everyone did everything possible to delay for half an hour and avoid matching the price.

Call the 888 number and same thing, the employee went over and over for 10 mins trying to find every nitpicky reason why they can't price match Sears.com, despite Sears.com being one of the online retailers they price match in their "policy". They won't even price match Amazon.com since it's not "immediately avalable", meaning it's not at another local store where I can buy it for $4.99.

If it was at another store for $4.99, why would I call BB to try and price match?


Anyway, went to Target and they price matched Amazon's $7.99 on the spot. No hassle. Best Buy isn't worth the extra $3. I can see why people hate buying from that place so much. Horrible. They've lost any future business I would ever give them for sure.

I checked this morning and both Sears and Kmart showed OOS. Printed a copy and went to Best Buy. PM was refused. I was told they checked and saw OOS within 50 miles of any store.They had this phone for $19.99. I went to Kmart not expecting to see this phone.(went to sears close by also)Saw last one and grabbed one. Thanks!

Beware. I bought a Kyocera Rise and the damn thing was almost unusable on Virgin Mobile. Beware.

Shot down at BB, Target and Walmart on PM.

BB saw that it was kmart and they don't PM kmart here.
Target & Walmart said they only PM printed ads, no websites unless it's in a physical ad. Frown

Best Buy is inconsistent on price matching. One store in a city without K-Mart or Sears wouldn't PM, citing that they don't PM cell phones as they are considered accessories. Different BB store in a different city with both Sears and K-Mart (although not really close) did PM.

Since I missed the first deal, I just got off the phone with BB and the sales rep kindly price matched to walmart's website for $9.88 +tax, FWIW.

It's worth a shot, since BB only price-matches items that are either in-stock within 25 miles of within your area or readily in-stock for online shipping.

Hopefully I can snag another ringplus BYOSD activation when it opens up again (I think I read somewhere in the ringplus thread it opens again on Friday morning?)

It's Friday night, not morning.

People that are doing the pricematch through BB phone, are they shipping to you for free or is it instore pickup? I'd prefer to do the pricematch through phone to save me a trip to the store and getting denied.

When you leave a voicemail on the phone, does anyone get indicator that new voicemail has arrived. I do get the voicemail if I call but no indicator saying message in the queue.

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, they are including free shipping to your address. Most likely you can try in-store pickup if you want the phone before the third ringplus activation window expires. I just realized that my phone will be delivered after this activation period, so hopefully they have another one in the nearby future.

You're welcome and thanks for letting me know the details, especially that this might be delivered after Friday. I want to make sure I get this beforehand so I will see if I can get them to do instore pickup.

Let me know if the in-store pickup works when you try to call-in; I forgot to ask the sales rep because I got distracted by the words "free shipping" lol. If so, I may have to try my luck at my local BB store to increase my chances of getting the third ringplus promo!

I don't blame you, I would have done the same thing, lol! Unfortunately all the stores around me are sold out so I guess I just have to hope they restock before Friday. Frown

I was able to have Target PM to Amazon.com's $8. They don't match SEARS.com price. Not all Target has this phone.

Guys, PM'ing is always YMMV as it requires intervention with sales associates/managers.
