With how closely the Managers scrutinize the ads, I felt my best chance would be to purchase the game (the PS3 version, mind you) in advance (Saturday) and then go back in store with the (online printed) ad for an adjustment.
Fortunately for me, that proved to work out despite the ad showing only for the 360 version. What really cheeses me off though is how some of these websites make it nearly impossible to print a decent size/quality of their ad; I'm looking at you TRU and Target!
Ugh, I knowwwwww. Those are actually the two ads I had to print out this past Sunday for PMs and they're so tiny/hard to read, especially for the BB employee since they have to scrutinize it. The manager actually said that I wasn't allowed to print out weeklies anymore (after my second "offense" mind you) and I had to have the actual ad, but my nearest TRU is much further than BB. Part of why I go to BB instead in the first place... Do you think the crappy print options are intentional? I mean, aside from making you get a paper, it makes it a PMing nightmare. I recall the one week TRU had the DJ Hero/Tony Hawk/Band bundles on sale they just happened to not release a paper ad that week.
Tl; dr You may be turned down for ads printed off the computer even if they're obviously applicable in-store. This is of course to prevent PMs of "online-only deals" or "photoshopped weeklies".
You can only price match to a lower price within a 15 mile radius of the Best Buy. If the sale gives the item a lower price, then yes, if it's a B1G1 50% off then no. It has to be the exact price. BB kinda sucks now.
I've found this to be YMMV, I PMed a TRU B1G1 50% off at BB with certain titles BB was having a sale on, no problem. However, they're definitely crushing GC PMs now, but from what I've heard on here, that's not universal.
So how exactly does this work? Kinda new here :P With the Target ad for Star Fox would I need to print out the ad? It doesn't seem to be working online. Also there are no other games right now that I don't have that I'd like, is there any way around that? I.e. returning a game next month (unopened) in exchange for one that I do under the same circumstances? Could I even return one to get SF for $30 in the end? Or does it not work like that at all.
Sorry for the very newbish questions, just want to make sure I know what I'm doing. Thanks!
I'm surprised no one else answered your questions, but I'll take a crack at it. You can print out the Target weekly ad (if you can't get one from a local paper, which is preferred) and just take the page with the Star Fox deal to wherever you're PMing (most likely BB or WalMart) its customer service. There isn't really a way around it (though you could trade in the other title somewhere else) and if you return it with the receipt you bought it with, it's YMMV on how much you would get back, if anything. Personally, to save $ on Star Fox, I would either get it at K-mart (with a $15 GC/coupon) or I would buy Star Fox with Star Fox or Star Fox with LoZ 3D (in the case of the latter, PM the deal at BB, they have LoZ 3D on sale for $30 this week).
