i price matched this today at my local bestbuy.

also, i dont know if this is old news or not ?
but the person that rung up my purchess told me that bestbuy is only price matching 1 time for an item starting today 3/3/13. in other words... if i was to buy/pricematch a game from bestbuy for $40, and the next week it went on sale for $30, they wont give you the price match or difference back. she said it is a one time only thing at the time of purchesd in the store. and she also mentioned that you only have 15 days to return an item now, no more 30 days.
again, not sure if thats old new or not ?


Yeah, new policy says that you can only PM at time of purchase unless the lower price is from BB. If they drop the price in 15 days, then you can PM again.

jealous of all that have a frys near them lol


Don't feel bad. Actually, this is YMMV. My closest frys is actually like 90 miles away from where I live lol. So it depends on the employees/manager.

The two locations in AZ show no stock on the controller. I went this morning and lo and behold there were a ton of controllers. Brought to the register and it rang up $55. The cashier asked his manager and we basically concluded that the UPC may have changed along with the packaging or something resulting in the UPC on the box being different than what was online.

Bottom line, no dice - may try to PM at BB to see if they will allow it.

Just got back from Best Buy. Cashier didn't want to price match (the online Fry's price shows $54.96), but finally called a manager over who PM'd with no problem.

Nice deal, as my DualShock 3 kicked the bucket a couple of days ago.

Hmm, whats the TIV at Gamestop for a dualshock 3? I have 3 of them at the moment with no need for a fourth, but I have one that could stand to be replaced (dog got to one of the analog sticks...).

Has anyone been able to PM this at Walmart? Do they have a policy about being close to a Fry's store? I want to try but we don't have a Fry's in this state.

PM'ed @Los Feliz, CA BB.

But you might have to go through several reps to find one willing to do it for you.

I PM'ed and purchased over the phone to save me some hassle.

From what i know about Walmart, they require you to bring a physical copy of the ad and not a print out

Mine does. Fry's is located about 21 miles from my Walmart and Ive heard the store manager say that they don't because its too far away, but the workers in electronics never got the memo. BB policy is within 25 miles, but Walmart doesn't give a specific #.

So all did was go back to electronics and ask one of the workers there if they has anymore black DS3's, bc there were none out on the floor. The worker told me there was one in the back and like 5 minutes later, he came back with 2 (told him I was looking for that many). When he starts to scan them, I him I want to price match these.

I pull this http://frys.com/product/5552260 up on my phone and let him look around at it. At 1st he said something about it being an online price or its for a 360 controller (idk), so I told hold him that is says "Available In-Store Only", so that is the in store price. That was all good for him and he scanned them and PM'd them, but it took another 5 min for a manager to override, since the difference in price was so much. The manager didn't ask to look at the ad, he just stuck his key in and approved it.

Price matched successfully at best buy. The first manager was very opposed to it, but the very nice cashier asked a second manager and I got the ok. This is defenitley very very YMMV

Price matched with no problems today at bestbuy. Cashier looked at my phone and saw website, got manager over who override it and walked away fast, didn't even bother looking at what was overridden. I Don't have a Fry's anywhere close to me, but very happy :D.

Price matched one yesterday evening at my local Best Buy. The cashier knows me so she just took a look at my phone (with page pulled up) and approved it. Used $15 in reward certs so it came out to $5.

I don't even need the controller as I have 4 controllers already that work fine, but I still felt compelled to get one...

Haha I guess it does. I haven't used it in like 6 months. Even with cyogenmod on it, kills the battery too quick....

Went to Bestbuy and picked one off the shelf and went to the cashier. Asked to do a price match and I showed her the page off of frys.com on my phone and she popped it right in no questions asked. Asked her if she would mind if I grabbed another and she said "No problem at all, we love the business" so my wife went back and grabbed another.

Out the door cost: $42.98 for 2 black Dualshock 3s
(figured I might as well grab two...for this price why not?)

Grabbed a blue one last night at BB and the cashier just saw the page on my phone and PM'ed without any questions. Was 95% sure they would force me to get the black one if they did the PM. Really good deal! Tempted to get a 3rd.

Worked for me. The cashier looked at the Fry's website and tried to see if any store had them near me. I thought I was screwed for a second, but she handed me back my phone and PM'ed it. I guess she overlooked the "Item unavailable" description.

Thanks OP! Hit up my Best Buy and snagged two. Just briefly showed the cashier the site on my phone and bam, got the manager to punch in his code. Just in time too because someone had just stolen my two controllers last week (among other things), so this was a bit easier on the wallet.

My experience was a bit of a pain. I thought I would be screwed but I managed to PM one at BB. I chose a pink one but the guy said it had to be black, so I switched to the black one. Then I had to wait for nearly 10 min for them to verify with the manager and then call Fry's to see if they had the exact model with 2 in stock (not sure why they needed 2). My heart was pounding the whole time because I checked all the Fry's nearby and supposedly they were unavailable. Turns out whatever Fry's they called did have 2 in stock and after a harrowing 20 minutes I walked out the door with my one black controller for $20+tax.
