Ah ok. There's a store in Michigan with the same name except it only has a 1- star average on Yelp :P

Thank you for the pic, Macanuto! Was able to price match at BB because of it. I also got the gift card, as well. I hadn't planned on it and didn't mention it. It automatically rings up at the end of the transaction. Might help if you wait until then before you bring it up. I do think their PM policy is either/or when it comes to gift cards in addition to PM, so YMMV.


You are welcome! I did knew about the GV but didnt mentioned to the employee since the computer bring it automatic. Hope more people get lucky

Thanks for the picture.  I was able to PM it at Best Buy for $99.99, but they didn't allow me to get the $30 gift card as well.  The manager said it was one or the other and that the system wouldn't allow for both.

You are welcome. Sorry uoundidnt got the GC. To me
It was brought automatic.

BB just told me they do not price match Costco. O well...


Just keep calling until you find somebody that does. Then don't get off the phone until you get a case # and email confirming the price adjustment. Found the right person on my 4th call.

I just went back tonight to the Customer Service desk because I forgot to ask for the 2-year warranty.  For the hell of it, I just brought up how people were getting the PM and the gift card all in the same transaction.  The lady looked into it for me and she just did a simple return and repurchase with the gift card included.  She said it should have been automatic and apologized for the incident.  I was able to use the gift card towards the warranty too.  Thanks again, pretty good deal.

Yeah, do not buy this controller without the warranty. That 90 day warranty with MS is a joke

I price matched at Best Buy and even was able to get in the promotion for getting a $30 gift card. Even better I was allowed to use the $30 gift card to buy the 2 year extended guaranty. Pics available if needed.

this is awesome !

How exactly is this controller better?  It's not going to enable you to outperform someone with a standard controller.  It's sad to see someone with their $600 4k monitor, $120 controller, $250 headset, $100 gaming glasses plus who know what else get destroyed over and over again in FPS games when all they needed was a cheap monitor and a standard controller. People need to step back and really look at if these expenditures on all this equipment is really going to help them.

This thread isn't for you Mom, now go make me a sandwhich

No dice at my BB - they accepted the price match but said they couldn't do the gift card on top of it. Torn between trying another BB or just getting it at Costco for the better return policy.

The one all the way down in Otay Ranch.

I guess it really depends on who is helping you.  The gift card did pop up automatically for me at the customer service desk even though it was a PM, however, at the normal check out registers it voided the gift card.  Don't know if there is any real difference between the two, but I guess it's worth a try if you're in the area.

My coworker went to the Best Buy near our office and was able to get the Elite Controller for $99 AND get the Gift Card.

 

He still has his receipt; do you think if he went with me and showed them his transaction receipt, that they could do the same for me?

Why woudn't you just go to the same store and try it? Why would you call a bunch of attention to yourself by taking an extra person with you and parading their receipt around like you're trying to do something shady? That's just stupidity.

What do people mean when they say that they "PMed" the store? Usually PM means "private message", but how do you private message the store?

I manged to get this deal on Best buy,

 

they first told me " We don't call other store to price match ", I showed them the picture that was posted here,

he still wasn't convinced they can actually call other store to price match.. 

 

but some nice Geek Squad member over heard us and said, " yes, when item isn't shown online we can call and check "

so we did!

 

Costco said it was 99.99 so I got it for 99.99 + free 30 gift card

$30 gift card was shown no where, but it appeared automatically.

 

I also got 2 year warranty for 14.99, 

 

overall I am quite happy about this deal,

 

edit: they said I need to be a Costco member to Price match, and wanted to see my Costco ID

Took me 3 Best Buy's but got it to come through on my last stop. The guy went online and found it on Costcos site some how not sure if you got to be a member to find it. But it's still listed at 119.99 there but was much easier to get it down to the 99.99 also got the gift card with it. Thanks Op

Actually, price matching a Warehouse club at Best Buy is allowed regardless if you are a member or not. It's in their Price Match Guarantee. No where does it state you need to be a member.

 

Proof

Well, I finally bit on this but only because I was using M$ own money and I actually had a reason to go to best buy now that they finally restocked some of the games that I had purchased during the BF sale.  Told the BB employee to call Costco and match the price.  He tried to pull some crap saying that you pay a membership fee at costco but I came right over the top stating that BB is in no position to not price match, given the fact that they've lost so much business of Amazon.  Before I could spit some more shit he was matching the price. YMMV on this one, so go in there knowing what your talking about and don't allow yourself to be treated like a lil DudeBro.  Don't mention the $30 gift card, just let them put in $99.99 for the price and the gift card will pop right up as it's tied to the SKU.

 

$100 for the controller with a $30 BB gift card.  $70 for an elite controller isn't bad.  The $100 came from some of the profits that I made for the 3 Gears Of War 4 elite controllers that I forgot I had.  Sold each of those for $300 as I had no idea they were fetching that much.  Another day.  Another win.

Thanks, OP. Local Costco did not appear to stock the Elite controller, BTW, although I'm never 100% certain about that as Costco has a habit of moving the gaming hardware/software around, splitting it into two different locations, etc.
