Worked for me at the second BB on the way home today!
First BB (Alderwood, WA): Grabbed a red Big Jambox and headed for the checkout. Asked whether BB price matches Sams Club and got a resounding "yes!" Ok, off to a good start. Started out by showing the page with the price of $168.99, and then tapped over to the info tab on their mobile site to reveal, in the first sentence, that the product in their catalog is a Big Jambox. The nit ended up being that the Jambox I was requesting was red, instead of black at the link, and that a manager needed to review. Long story short (too late?), the manager told me that I would need to purchase a black Jambox and show a Sams Club card, and unfortunately Black was out of stock and I'm not a Sams Club member. Walked out with nothing, but fortunately the entire ordeal took less than 10 minutes.
Second BB (Northgate/Seattle, WA): Headed straight over and grabbed another red Big Jambox and made a bee line for the checkout. This time, nothing but success: same method of showing the price and then tapping over to the info tab. The cashier tried to find the model number on the box to match it to the website, but wasn't able to find anything besides the serial number and just put the PM through. Noteworthy is that he wasn't able to find Sams Club in their competitor PM list, but instead selected Walmart, and I was never asked to present a club card. The cashier did note that normally the products would need to be the same color, but since they were the same price he would put the PM through. Hooray!
For what it's worth, after rocking out on this thing for half of a day using 3 or 4 different BT devices I can report that this baby was probably worth the $300 asking price. Very, very slick and heavily YMMV deal, though the success rate seems pretty high. I'm sort-of a minimalist and really hate big and intrusive things, especially in my electronic devices. Probably one of my better purchases of 2012.
Thanks OP! +TU +REP

|cequizhpi||Got Pm at BB. At first they were skeptical about it, but I just flashed them a smile in return.|

is this really a slickdeal?
yes it is!! it was tough to PM this as Sam's Club isn't selling this unit for $169.00 The description is for the BIG unit but that isn't what you're getting for 169.00 You're getting the small one.
the model number is for the small one. If BB or Target check the model #, you finished , if they look st the picture your finished, it shows the small unit (top buttons)
Those who got a PM were lucky as you could niot get this unit for that price even at Sams.
I commend those who got in on the deal, but I think they are far & few. That being said, Anyone of you lucky few that got more then one, PM me if you want to sell one for ~200. plus s&h

So Close, but no cigar
went to BB, got item; shows salesman ad, said he had to verify, waited 20 minutes and got verification it was in stock. went to register, couldn't find sam's club, asks another saleperson, he say yes we match them. he asks me for the ad again, studies ad and says it the small one;look at the picture. he already had the security tag off.
I said thank you and left. Maybe he saw me doing the Happy Dance :-)

|mjv5864||Scored 4 all together. Sell 3 to pay for mine. Would have preferred white but they won't pm it.|

I was able to price match at Best Buy with no issues at all!
Went to one Best Buy, and they refused. Then I went to another one, and it was so easy.
All I had to do was show them the Sam's Club page on my phone, and he took it.
This is in Moore, OK by the way.
