Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation - Stainless Steel for $180 + google mini

$180.00

First time posting a deal, so I'm sorry if I get anything wrong. I just managed to get the Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation - Stainless Steel from bestbuy for $180 + google home mini.

The way I did it was:
1) Go to www.bestbuy.com/pricematch and start an online chat.
2) In the live chat request for a price match against verizon, who have it for sale at $180 (no google home mini here Frown ) Provide them with this link: https://www.verizonwireless.com/a...eneration/
3) They will agree to price match! Big Grin

Extra tip: Check if your electrical company has rebates, mine has $150 in rebates. So this is basically a free purchase for me.

Yep. I tried today and while they would pricematch vs Verizon at $179.99... they wouldn't include the free Google Mini

I'm in the middle of pricematching with Bestbuy using online chat, they allow the pricematch to Verizon website, however, they won't give me the Google Home mini speaker when they placing the order for me. Just FYI...

Instead of asking Bestbuy to place order through chat, they allow you to place an order first, which will be at regular price, and comes with Google Mini. Then provide the order number to the online chat person, they will then generate a refund for the difference, in 3-5 business days.

I took that back, the online chat representative pointed out that once pricematch, the free item promotion will not be honor. so, your result may varies!!

When I was speaking to them about the price match, I did not bring up the free Google mini, figured there was no point attracting attention to that. I just bought it, gave the online person my order Id and she issued the refund. The in-store people did not know anything about the price match or refund, they just gave me the nest and the Google mini

Didn't work for me with "Sergio"...

I carefully went through the website as well as all the available options. I'm sorry to inform you that, this product is eligible for price match but this product is out of stock on the competitor's website.
