What exactly does this mean? I can return an item I bought after 15 days, but not adjust the price? If that's the case people will just by the item again at a cheaper price and return it with the old receipt.

Damn, Dead Space drop already. I would grab it but odds are $20 is coming sooner than I expected.

Far Cry 3 (on 360) on the other-hand.... i'm tempted to get because I have a $25 gift card. Any thoughts or recommendations on it? All I heard was good stuff. Hrmmm..

Yeah it's odd however it makes it impossible to preorder titles and earn the $20 RZ cert while doing post purchase adjustments now since you're not supposed to void the original preorder if you want the $20 cert.

The extended PM time for silver members was probably the only benefit I ever received from being a silver member that I actually used.

No, thats wrong.

You can only PM other retailers at time of purchase no matter who you are.

No matter what level you are, you get 15 days to PM if it goes on sale at best buy or bestbuy.com

Regular members only get 15 days to return an item, while silver members still get 60 days to do a return.

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I didn't mean PS members only (that's why I had it near 60 days). Pretty much what you typed is how it will be.

I'm on a mobile so mods, feel free to delete my post above this.

They will? I guess they will also enjoy losing their ability to return items after they do that a few times.

The one thing the policy doesn't talk about is PMs after purchase. If you read the policy it states:


"At the time of purchase, we will match the current pre-tax price for new, identical, immediately available products from a local retail competitor’s store and these designated major online retailers: .... <deleted to save space>

We will match prices between our stores and BestBuy.com ®. We will also match prices post purchase if we lower our price within 15 days of your purchase.

The Guarantee is limited to one price match per identical item, per guest and does not apply to: Contract mobile phone devices and plans, the online prices of retailers not listed, the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace vendors) on designated major online retailers websites, post purchase price match requests to competitor’s prices"



It isnt clear (to me at least) if that means no post purchase PMs to any competitors at all, or if there is another policy for PMs against other retailers. If it is the first option, it is actually worse than their current 30 day PM window against other B&M retailers, which I dont think is their intention. Hell, even Target's new policy includes a 7 day (granted it was 15 before) post purchase PM window to any retailer.

Seems clear to me as was summarized a couple posts above.

The only post purchase PMing is within 15 days by BB stores or BB.com. Only PM available with local retailers occurs is when you purchase the item.

The silver benefits have been severely pruned by reducing the PM possibilities/windows although I PMed MGR yesterday with Fry's.

Agreed that the benefits of silver are reduced significantly. The only other thing I can find is that the 15-day PM window wont go into effect for silver members until April 18.

"If Best Buy lowers a price on a product (online or in-store) we will allow price-matching up to 15 days following the original purchase. This applies to all customers including Reward Zone Premier Silver members. Please note: After a transition period for Reward Zone Premier Silver members through April 18, 2013, the 15 day period of the Price Match policy goes into effect (post-purchase – Best Buy only)."

I'm assuming that means silvers can post-purchase PM to BB any purchase within 60 days, assuming it was bought before March 3, and only until April 18.

I'm guessing B2G1 next week...it was on the last Wednesday of February last year, so...
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I fuckin hope so. I want to spend my gift cards! I'm also really undecided on Farcry 3...I want it, but can get a lot more for my money if I go B2G1. Missing out on 95% of the PS3 library makes me want to just spend it on used.
