How can BB pricematching of the ToysRUS deal not also be a specific deal? A YMMV deal, sure, but all the more reason for a separate thread. No way anyone will find which stores it is working at in a 70 page thread.
The TRU B2G1 sale is a specific sale that is going on at all TRU's right now.
BB has specific provisions against matching a "free with purchase" deal, as discussed in this post made in the TRU thread:
Here's a link to the BB PM policy:
However, BB can deny you a PM on the TRU deal, because they spell it out that they won't match a "free item" sale promotion:
The bolded section says that they won't match free item promotions, so any time you get a store to match a B2G1 sale or a "buy X and get Y free" sale, they're doing so at their discretion.
Best Buy Retail Store Price Match Guarantee
If you find a lower advertised price on the same available brand and model prior to your purchase or during the exchange and return period, we will match that price. Simply bring in the ad of the local retail competitor or Best Buy, while the lower price is in effect and receive your price match.
The guarantee does not apply to our competitors' website pricing and the guarantee does not apply to our or our competitors':
- Offers that include financing, bundling of items, free items, pricing errors and mail-in offers
- Items that are limited-quantity, out of stock, open-box, clearance, Outlet Center, refurbished/used items and items for sale Thanksgiving day through the Saturday after Thanksgiving
Don't expect them to do it, since the policy says they don't have to. If you get them to do it, consider yourself lucky.
The above post is for this section, as listed above:
How do you handle a price match if the Best Buy price includes a promotional offer such as a free gift card or rebate?
The Best Buy net purchase price is calculated by deducting the value of all instant and mail-in discounts such as rebates, free offers and promotional gift cards. Existing rebates and free offers associated with a product purchased at Best Buy will not apply if a price match is executed.
This is for rebates, instant discounts, bundle savings or free gift cards with purchase. The B2G1 sale doesn't fall into this category, since it's not a rebate or gift card. It's a weak association for this to work if it's used to try and get the B2G1 matched, since they clearly state they won't match "free item" promotions. This is where it falls into the gray area of store manager discretion.
BB price matching the TRU B2G1 sale is completely YMMV, and isn't a specific deal, since not all BB's will do it. So, it doesn't belong in the VGD forum. It's part of the TRU deal, so it either belongs in the TRU thread, or in a separate thread here.
