I just price matched through best buy chat the ipad mini from brandsmart for $299.

Give the agent this link https://www.brandsmartusa.com/app...+2019+.htm

I am not near a brandsmart store and they did it without question.

Good luck!

did you get the ipad mini 4 or 5? the website shows ipad mini 4 even though the description is for the 5. hopefully you got an ipad mini 5.

Clicking the brandsmart link you posted works, but when I copy and paste it in a browser it does not.
Edit: it's saying this for most of their products right now
Edit 2: Got the price match over the phone! Thanks OP

I was going to try this but didn't think they'd do it. Went to brands mart instead but would have preferred Best Buy.

shout out to OP, I was able to get it price matched on the first try. This is still very YMMV!!!

the chat person did ask what my zip code was and I mistakenly gave them my correct one, then I fixed it by saying I lived close to a brandsmart store but was shipping it to a family member on the west coast....
He asked his supervisor who authorized it, then I purchased the ipad mini 5 and sent him the order number, he proceeded with refunded me the difference...AKA $107 and change.

received both the order confirmation and refund emails

Did you get the Space Gray from the brandsmart page, or a different color and still price match it?

To anyone successful. Did the actual order status page reflect the refund or is it just through email?

Definately a YMMV. I tried calling and they said they dont pricematch an item that another company is currently discounting on sale.

This is back up on brandsmart. It was simple for me first try. I did the space grey in store pickup. watching videos on it now. Good luck. I marked it as expired, but i think with some effort you can get it to go through.you pay the full and they refund the difference. about a 10 minute process.

Again asking anyone successful does it show as refunded on the order status page? Mine shows full price even though I got an email from Best Buy.

Don't want to argue in store at the pick up

Once again this is very YMMV!!!!
To recap. Used my iPad and Got on bestbuy website chatted thru site chat asked them to price match to brandsmart, they asked for the sku and link as well as my zip code, focked up and used the wrong zip so I proceeded to give them a zip where brandsmart has a store (used sawgrass mills 33323) then chat rep asked his supervisor then he approved it. Bought the space gray full price, in the same chat window gave him my order number from there he informed me that he will refund the difference ($107). Looked for order confirmation and refund confirmation emails. Got both within 5 mins. Little effort and maybe lucky with the right chat person but worth it!!! Great Xmas gift.
