Well it sucks!

I know I posted it in the deal but since people visit this forum more the should be aware:

²The Price Match policy for Reward Zone Premier Silver members will follow the new guidelines of 15 days following a transition period that will last until April 18, 2013, which allows 60 days for price matching to Best Buy's prices post purchase. Beginning with purchases on or after April 19, 2013 the price match will be the same for all customers.

Does Target price match this?

On all serious notes, this has been discussed a plethora of times thruout the site. Does not need to be in the deals section.

So, less days for silver members on PMing after purchase? Was it always 15 days?

Best buy is catching on!

No point in preordering games at best buy anymore- is rather wait til its on sale for 39.99 than buy at 60 and get a 20 rz cert

Yeah, I guess it was good while it lasted for some folks, never got anywhere near Silver myself.

Price matching 60 days later must have gost them quite a bit of money. I remember when Amazon shut down their price matching, it sucked but I wasn't surprised. I'd price matched 1 game like 4 times with nothing more than an email.

So. no more price adjusting huh.,......

Two weeks is horrible. Costco has a 60 day return program. Despite paying to get in.
Every other store on this earth has a 30 day return period.

Am I missing something?
Isn't returns going to 15 days a huge change?
Wasn't it 30 days before and more for Silver?

If I'm reading the 1st post correctly, PMing after purchase will be the same for silver members until 4-19. After 4-19, PMing after purchase will be only 15 days. Returns/exchanges will still be 60 days after purchase for silver members.

I don't think Price Matching at time of purchase is changing, you guys.

^silvers can only pm Best Buy after purchase for 60 days until April 19th. After then it is 15 days to PM best buy with a 60 day return/exchange window.

That's AFTER purchase. I'm talking about at the time of purchase. It looks to be the same as before.

Between the nuked trade-in values of games and this new "return" "price match" policy, Best Buy just lost about all of my business. There's still good deals to be had, but the window is a lot slimmer than before.

Eh, they still get a lot of my business since they started PMing online retailers. I was able to get a Macbook Air with no tax, because I told the dude I would just get it on Amazon. That day was pretty awesome.

Well between the @Gamer coupons going south and the change to the PM policy...I see myself buying from Best Buy much less frequently. I don't fault them for the change...they are HEMORRHAGING money afterall...but that doesn't mean I'm going to keep spending money there.

Jesus Christ, the online PMing is not a new thing, people. The only thing that's changing are the after purchase PMing.
