I'm on the phone with Best Buy price matching Halo 4 to Target's $39.99 price. Dude informed me I can only price match retail stores only. I told him I thought they expanded that policy to websites too, but he informed me they can only price match websites at the time of the purchase.

Being that this is a one day only deal from Amazon, should I just call Best Buy again and get another representative? It's a bestbuy.com order so I don't know if driving to a retail store would accomplish anything besides wasting gas.


The representative is right, the official policy is that they only PM websites at time of purchase. Since its a bb.com order, store wont be able to help you, your only option is to call back. If that doesn't work, wait till next week when Kmart has ACIII for $39.99, in the physical ad.

.com orders have to be PM'd over the phone. You should PM the Target price at a minimum. Technically they can deny you on the DLC bundle gift offer clause though. The fine print for Amazon PM's do not cover game software so technically they should deny that too but sounds like the current day purchase PM was incorrectly interpreted to me.

Did you walk into your local store or do it over the phone? I would love to PM this but they never let me PM websites, let alone daily deals.


I walked in. It's on their website that they match Amazon.

"For the above promotions, the Designated Major Online Retailers are: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, CircuitCity.com, CompUSA.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, hhgregg.com, HP.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com, Newegg.com, OfficeDepot.com, OfficeMax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, TigerDirect.com, and Walmart.com."

Also, on AC3's page on Amazon, the price says nothing about being a daily deal. I just showed them the game on the Amazon app.

Current day purchase PM for websites only, from bb.com:

You didn't read the whole policy, technically it only applies to appliances and electronics hardware, not software. See my post above. Any game PMs against website retailers (both during and/or after purchase) should be YMMV, but people have much better luck in the stores (myself included) than over the phone.

Denied by a female representative now. Guess I'll be waiting till next week to price match Kmart. Thanks for the information guys, the worst thing Best Buy could tell me was "no."

I have been having that exact problem for online orders, reps saying online purchases can only be price matched pre-purchase for websites. It's best to just buy in-store from now on if you want to price match websites.

I just got done talking to a Bb rep, the price matching actually went fairly quickly... All she had to do was verify the price on Amazon and then she manually adjusted the price difference. Yay for money back on my card!! Thanks guys!

Hmm, debating on whether I should call a third time now. I know Best Buy probably keeps a log on all these calls and me repeatedly calling them may raise some flags at their loss and prevention department.

Best Buy is becoming the equivalent of a girl I'm trying to go out with. "No Means No!"

It's true, they just updated the price match policy a few days ago on the 9th. You can only price match competitor websites at time of purchase. No price match allowed during the return or exchange period for competitors website prices either. You can't PM video games to online retailers officially anyways but some CAGs are able to pull it off so ymmv.

Yep. They keep a log of every call and case made under your name. Sometimes even the denials too.

Probably going to get this and Halo 4 price matched at Best Buy in a little while to see if I can get the $40 gift card on top of this. Even have a $20 RZ certificate to make it even less.

I wonder if you can use the gift card same day? Because I maybe getting Hitman Absolution (39.99 price point) and Assassin's Creed III (33.00 price point) then use the $40 dollar gift card that comes free so it would be $33 for both from Best Buy.

I tried price matching Fry's one time and waited a week on a gift card for the difference. It never came and I called back inquiring about it. The rep was able to look up when I last called and found out in the notes that it was put through that I price matched a Fryer instead. :lol:

I got bestbuy to price match but holy hell was that difficult! 30 minutes I had to argue. I wouldn't even be so irritated if I didn't have to explain their own policies to them just about every time I called. I've only had one good retro PMing experience out of 8 or so.

You had to argue because you wanted an exception to the policy. See prior pages of this thread for the exact wording, but the online price pm is valid only at time of purchase, not retro.

But you get it back in either trade-in credit or Amazon Instant video credit. If you use both then it's $17 instead of $23.
