Nice find. That will be a pile of folks and add piles money to the AAFES moral and welfare fund.

Just be careful folks as not all deals are better than ebay, Amazon, Walmart, BB, frys, etc.

But once in a while on a BF you will find a coupon deal that is a super hot deal.

I know they always have coupons around BF at the BX but it is sporadic online at best.

And without on base access you may not be able to take it back to a store. Online return is your only option.

But could be a good deal if you are a wise shopper. We need your money.LMAO

Most the time deals are not as good as sales from the big boxes but when they do have "specials" it's worthwhile taking a look see.

$199.99


AAFES
Samsung UBD-K8500 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player
Item #: 7748028
List Price: $399.00
Your Price: $299.00
$249.00 Sale You Save: $50.00 ( 16.72% )
OK! %6 tax=$13.94 TAX savings.

Actually this is a pretty good sale for the BX, usually the price spread is worse.

AAFES does not match everyone's price. It all depends.

exchange stores
price match
Price Match Policy
The Exchange retail stores will match a local competitor's current price on any identical stock assortment item for the customer who makes the price challenge.
Program applies to all retail stores to include Class Six, Express, Car Care and Troop Stores.
Definitions

Local competitor: A local competitor is defined as a retailer doing business in the community where the Exchange is located, to include warehouse clubs, Navy, and Marine Exchanges.
Current ad: A "local" competitor's current ad is defined as an ad that clearly shows inclusive current dates, and is sponsored by the retailer doing business in the community where the Exchange is located.
Identical item: Item that has the same brand, manufacturer, features, size, color, and model number. For Softlines, item must be same brand, size, color, and style.
Exchange Retail Program
The Exchange retail stores worldwide will accept a verbal price challenge on identical items from local competitors with the difference of $10 or less* (per item). Price differences up to $10 will be honored at any cash register. *Verbal price match may require validation by Management.
The Exchange retail stores worldwide will accept a price match on identical items with a difference greater than $10. Customer must provide current ad from local competitor. If the customer does not have the ad, management can verify the price, terms and inclusive dates.
The Exchange retail stores worldwide have a 14-Day Price Guarantee on any item originally purchased from the Exchange and subsequently sold at a lower price by the Exchange, or any local competitor.
The Exchange retail stores worldwide will not accept price match challenges from outside internet site.
The Exchange retail stores worldwide will match pricing on identical items found on shopmyexchange.com with the exception of the following categories: fine jewelry, and closeouts, Special Orders, Exchange Online Mall Wireless Phones and Wireless Data Cards
Amazon sales and flash sale at Best buy are pretty much all of ebay are off limits. Also had issues with BF price matching and several special sale days at SAMs.

Sometimes you get a great deal at the BX. Always check 4 places before buying any large item.

Same with the commissary. Most items are actually cheaper at the commissary but not always. Publix and Winn Dixie have door busters that are incredible. Ex: Bread for $1 a loaf every day at WinnDixie.

10 full size cans of tomatoes for $10 when on sale. But the commissary is a much different story. Usually the cheapest.

You are right. But we are comparing apples to apples. Each store will have varying price differences. There is almost no way any retailer will beat out every other retailer.
