But it might help someone save a few bucks. If people think this deserves a thread I will start one but with exclusions I felt it wasn't really a hot deal.
Here is one link with info or you can go to the interwebs for more info
This does NOT need its own thread. A) it isn't on official policy at this point (check their website) and B) "And they can choose NOT to do it whenever they want" as stated in your article.
The best part... "Sales staff will only offer to match the online price if specifically asked
"... The majority of Best Buy employees are clueless to current sales and policies. I to this date struggle to get my DLC printed upon preorders. Are we really to expect they would be up to speed on a hidden PM addition that they have been denying for years... HAHAHAHAHA.... SURE
I, like you, would wish this will happen. But being a realist, there is no way this is happening unless on the official Price Match policy documents. If not, I know I will be denied just like before.
EDIT: Official Price Match Policy
"Does Best Buy match the prices of Internet retailers?
Best Buy does not match the prices of Internet-only retailers or the website prices of our local retail competitors' stores. If, however, a local retail competitor has the same or lower price as its online store and the customer can provide verification of the in-store price, Best Buy will match the price (so long as all other price match policy criteria are met).
