1. Use your favorite cash back site first (this will yield you around $14 cash back or even better, depending).
2. Once at Sears, add the item to your cart: http://www.sears.com/acer-11.6inc...57756
3. Fire up customer service chat and tell them, "I'm thinking to buy this chromebook, and I'm just wondering if you can help me price match it to Walmart, which has it for $199.99." Be nice. Don't say anything extra (some people make this m!$take which ends up alarming the rep that you are up to something). Give them the Walmart link: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Acer-NX...m/43857723 Confirm to make sure that the rep agrees to the PM amount. "Great. So, you can apply $40 PM if I buy this from Sears, right?" The rep will try to place the order for you. Politely decline. Just tell them, "I actually already have it in my cart, and I'm in the process of making the payment. Can I just give you the order number after I place the order so you can apply $40 price match adjustment to it?" They'll say yes.
4. Use additional dollar back coupons you have. If you don't, go find one! I had $20 back $75 coupon, which gave me $92 back in points! Finish paying for it. To maximize the profit, I recommend against using any points.
5.Give the order number to the rep, and let them work their magic. Make sure to express your appreciation.
While the actual $ details will be slightly different for some people, here is a breakdown of my personal example:
$239.99 - $72.99 (points back) - $20 (back in points coupon) - $40 (price match) - $14 (cash back site) = $93 Yes, a new Chromebook for practically $93 in the end! If price match fails, it'll be $133, but it should work just fine if you follow the steps.
