Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD $54.99 (After price match to Amazon YMMV)

$54.99

I ordered the new Frys.com deal for this drive ($69 + Tax) for Memorial Day. I could only find the store about 40 miles away. I gave a call to bestbuy to see if they can match the price so that I can save time in driving so much for an SSD. The lady on phone was friendly and said I show amazon has a price of $54.99 for this drive, I asked can you match that price then, she said yes. Like I said YMMV, I know I was looking to get this drive and missed the $59 deal few days back and hope this helps somebody. Again, amazon site does not show this price, but BB's internal system shows that as amazon price that they could match.

All the best!

As I mentioned in my original post: amazon site does not show this price, but BB's internal system shows that as amazon price that they could match.

You have to call BB to see if they do that for you. I don't understand the thumbs down here. I did say YMMV and did mention that amazon site does not show this price.

Yeah- i think best buy requires you to show them the site on-hand before they investigate into the price match. --- unless i'm mistaken there's another way to bring this up?

I was sharing my experience this morning and I did end up buying 2 drives at $54.99, which is pretty cool. The rep on phone didn't ask me for any confirmation from frys.com, she said they have an internal system to track prices for competitors and said amazon has it for $54.99. I told her I am fine with that price if BB can match and she got approval for my drives.

I hope it can help somebody, again YMMV.

Do you have to order first and then price match?

I did have the frys.com order confirmation for pickup, but the lady on phone didn't care about it at all. My understanding is you call BB for price match (choose the option which says I already placed an order to get to a rep quickly) and tell them you would like to price match with amazon.com. Ask them to look up the competitors pricing (internal) and see if they can get you that price.

I know lot of people are doing thumbs down, I am just trying to help if I can. I had a hard time finding a good price for these and was hoping some people will benefit with this information. I am sorry if you are not able to get this price but I am not putting any wrong information here, just sharing tips and my experience.

Don't worry too much about the thumbs down, ppl like to thumbs down good deals so that it doesn't get the SD effect.

Alright, I can confirm that I successfully placed an order for 2. I'd ordered 2 from Fry's last time but my order expired since I couldn't pick them up or something, so this is great. I had to wait a bit for her supervisor to approve the price match. Thanks!

I just called on the phone to do it, they say you have to purchase the item first, I literally purchased it while I was on the phone and then they pricematched it to amazon. YMMV but I would definitely call rather than chat.
