New BB price match policy matches frys.com so you can pm there as well

YMMV since it says in-store only.

Damn I will try and get a PM at my BB but I doubt it the two fry's near me have none in stock and only once I have had them just PM without calling because they were busy.

If the nearest Frys is 900 miles away, do you think my local best buy will still price match?

I think they have to be within 20 or 25 miles of the store just tell them to (√900)/2 = 15 then its within there price match range!

Has this been on sale for a few days already, for all the Southern California locations shows that the controller is unavailable?

Why do you care, just PM at BBY. Use all that trade credit and certs.

I need a second controller too. Hmm, I'll swing by my store and see if they have any.

Is this the one with the clam shell plastic case? not the blue retail box which is $55 in-store.

Your best option would be to do a price match at BB and hopefully they don't do a store check.

It's an open box only available in Milton, GA. I can tell because there's currenlty a 6.2 pc option when looking up store availability which shows all of their stores.

So I went to try this a few hours ago...Have a fry's store within the 25 miles of the BB, but Fry's did not have it in stock.

When I got to BB, there was a mom and her son who trying get this done with the Fry's thing and they got denied. I heard the BB rep say that because they can't purchase it online through the Fry's store, that they can't price match.

So if your local Fry's doesn't have it in stock...getting BB to pm this is YMMV. You just have to hope they don't check the stock. If you really want to try this anyway...just take it up to the the front registers, so they might not think to check stock, because it might be busy and they wanna keep lines moving.

There is one other alternative I can think of...try and get Walmart to PM this...their pm policy doesn't require the item to be in stock, so there is that you can do. Im gonna try this tonight sometime.

I feel like I should have gotten more than one, but I won't wear out my welcome until an amazing PM comes out.

I always price match at the front register because they are more likely to be in hurry with other customers inline so they don't check online price/stock or call a location. My Best Buy lets me use my phone as proof for the lower price. With that said I don't need another controller because of the Target PS3 controller and Call of Duty: Black Ops bundle that went on clearance.

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 ?

The UPC on the fry's site doesn't match the blue box DS3 controllers they have at BB, but the manager still gave the cashier the go-ahead to PM, got 3 controllers :bouncy:

Think you could pricematch this somewhere and get a different color?

I managed to price match this. I felt like it was going to be a no go especially because the guy saw the other black controller in the frys page at full price. He then ask a guy in white shirt(manager?) who was near and then he gave him the go.

Don't take your chances. They might be strict with the UPC thing and not allow it. Get the black.

I might be wrong but why would it? I believe each color has a different UPC.
