Can someone explain the process they used to call best buy to get them to price match? I am a premier silver rewards member if that helps any.
Just tell them that you want to PM with Staples. They will let you know some BS about the items need to be the same color, or no PM with clearance, or has to be in stock, or other BS. If you're lucky to get the nice salesperson, then he/she will just PM without saying all these nonsense stuff. Good luck!

Has anyone actually used these? Even at half off they're a total ripoff. They sound like $10 headphones, and they feel like they're going to fall apart at any time. Just goes to show how many suckers out there are willing to drop $200 on ridiculous looking, crappy headphones.

Thumbs down.
Exaggeration much? Sure they're overpriced and you're paying for the brand but these sound way better than any $20 and under headphones.

FYI:
if you plan to PM with Nordstorm, just ask them for in store pick up. If not, they will send you the older model (like the ones on Staples' website). I don't think they would PM since they were hammered last Christmas because of the same deals from Staples (thanks to SDers)

PM with Best Buy is probably your best bet to get a newer model (HD by Dr. Dre) Call their call center, and then ask for in store pick up. Depending on your luck and the salesperson you talk to, you'll even get them in different colors. (Last Christmas they even threw in free $20 GC)

Office Depot also PM. Their in-store workers don't really care about their store's policy. If they have it, then you'll get it.

Walmart and Target also PM, but you need a printed ad from Staples to get PMed. Good luck!

I pm'd it to the specific item # from the Nordstrom site. So my receipt has the new ones listed.

I ordered it for shipping. Could I have it changed to store pickup?

Yup they actually sound decent (way better than $20 headphones)...well a bit too heavy on the bass for my taste, but haters are haters Smilie peace!

yup. Just call them back and they'll change it to in-store pick up. Hopefully you get the newer model by Dr. Dre instead of Monster.

Best Buy is telling me that since the model number doesn't match up they can't price match them.

I've been on this deal for almost a month now and I can tell you they've gotten smarter at BB. They must have put up a memo or something.

Would have preferred ordering through staples anyways though since I have 3 $25 off XXX coupons

Now they're saying that the headphones don't have the Low Price Guarantee logo above the price on the website so they won't price match the headphones.

So basically we have to get extremely lucky to get the price match from Best Buy? If I don't get it after about 4 calls I'm giving up. I'm going to try after work today.

You're gonna need a lot more luck PMing from BB now bud. It was rough before but now its even worse. Here were the reasons I got before to not PM (you can't argue against any of them because it is in their policy):

1) OOS
2) Clearance
3) not same model (HD vs not)
4) manufacturer (monster vs not)

The latest reasons now include:
1) No low price guarantee badge
2) No longer price match online prices due to holiday season being over

ANY ONE reason will stop you dead in your tracks.

This is coming from the guy who called about 20 times. I know their PM policy in and out by now as well as a chunk of their sales reps by first name/voice/tone/race

Don't bother with best buy, I'd say you have a better chance with Nordstrom over the phone though. Not online. Just keep calling.

Call them, just keep trying.

A lot of them are aware and some aren't.

That's how I got mines.
