Just spoke to BB CSR and she said they will no longer PM. Since fry's has marked it down as clearance, she also said that they have received quite a bit of calls regarding matching this item. I asked if she can offer a price match to a comparable movie and I was told they can't price match if it's not identical. So this can YMMV call.
That's a made up excuse since nowhere does it actually claim to be "clearance" but it's still tough to argue against a denial since Best Buy doesn't carry this version that is marked down.
Just price matched to Best Buy over the phone although since Best Buy has different versions it may not work for everyone. I gave the Best Buy sku and when she said she would look it up on Fry's website I made sure to tell her I have the Fry's product number to "make the search easier for her" which she used instead of typing "Wall-E" on the website.
I used a $5 certificate so I owed $0.00 since it discounts pre-tax.
Best Buy SKU (2-disc Wall cover) - 2589047
Best Buy SKU (3-disc version) - 9015674 [<-- the version I got]
Fry's also has these other two versions on their website, neither of which is $5. That's why I wanted to try and make sure that she searched using the Fry's product number for the version that does show up at $5
Thank you for posting your detail experience about price matching this. I did the exact same thing at 11:40 PST and price matched at bestbuy.com over the phone. I just got the confirmation email that the 3 disc version is being sent with free shipping. Total cost $5.40.
NO GO on the price match from BestBuy. They have a completely different UPC# than Frys version.
Best Buy UPC 786936810950
Frys UPC 786936769364
Would not budge at all...
Good luck to those who are successful...
Yeah, if there is a good rep on the phone they will easily determine that the $5 version isn't sold by Best Buy. I recently discovered that even though Best Buy doesn't display UPCs on the website (at least that I can see) if you type in a UPC in the search bar, it will bring up the product page for that item.
Did you give the Fry's SKU, print out the link page from fry's website or just ask for a price match fry's?
I want to try this tomorrow. TIA
No, I just had the webpage open of Fry's in my phone. Walked to the checkout, showed my phone, and asked for price match. The guy at the register rang it up pretty quickly after he saw the $5 on the page. Even the supervisor who came to do the override was saying that's a slick deal.
Btw, the cover is completely different from Fry's, and the combo is different, too(Best Buy: 3 discs combo v.s. Fry's 2 discs combo.) Even so, I didn't have any trouble checking out. It's very YMMV depending on the person who checks you out, I guess.
