Deal DetailsLast Edited by mlacey3 April 1, 2016 at 01:42 PM
Model is the Bosch Ascenta 50-Decibel Dishwasher, model numbers for the three finishes are:
SHE3AR72UC -White (Lowes link ) (Best Buy link )
SHE3AR76UC - Black (Lowes link ) (Best Buy link )
SHE3AR75UC - Stainless (Lowes link ) (Best Buy link )
Lowes 10% rebate (good thru April 5)
Use Lowes price guarantee -- price match plus 10% -- to Best Buy. Add Lowes 10% rebate on Bosch appliances (valid thru April 5) for the final price. Here's how:
For the white or black finish, Lowes price is $499, Best Buy has it for $450. For stainless steel exterior, Lowes is $599, BB is $540. Call Lowes customer service and ask for Lowes price guarantee on the BB price. They should match the price, plus an extra 10% off. That will make your out-the-door price $405 for W/B, $486 for SS. After Lowes 10% rebate, the final price is $365 for W/B, $437 for SS.
Note: Lowes may try to misinterpret their own price guarantee. If they try to deny the PM because the item is a "special order" for Lowes, point out politely that that written exclusions apply to the competitor's stock, not Lowes (check Best Buy's stock first, find a store that has it in stock, if they ask. If the Lowes CSR still says 'no', _politely_ ask to speak to the local store manager.
Some are being offered the PM but not the extra 10% because the dishwasher is "special order" at Lowes. What? That is made-up BS, existing nowhere in Lowes low price guarantee. The guarantee always gives an extra 10% with a PM, and there is no provision to do PM only. The guarantee allows all Lowes products -- new, used, in stock. special order -- to be PM'ed. Exclusions apply to competitors' stock only.
No use arguing with the CSRs. Clearly they're just carrying out the non-existent policy and you arguing about it will get you nowhere.
Instead, ask to speak to the local store manager. If that manager knows high school English grammar and is honest, you should be set.
The Lowes price guarantee [emphasis mine]:
"We guarantee our everyday competitive prices. If you find a lower everyday price on an identical item at a local retail competitor, just bring us the competitor's current ad, and we'll beat their price by 10%. If a competitor is offering a percent off discount, we'll match the final net price the competitor is offering. Our price guarantee does not apply to installation labor, to the competitor's closeout, special order, discontinued, clearance, liquidation or to damaged items. Limited to reasonable quantities. Please reach out to Lowe's Product & Sales Customer Care at 1-877-465-6937 or visit your local store."
My receipt shows out-the-door price of $539.99 (BB price)-$54(10% "beat their price")=$485.99 (plus tax). Rebate should be $48.60 for a final price of $437.39.
