Glad to see people getting in on this! For anyone being roadblocked, remember to give them a zip code local to a Meijers and not your own; you can have it shipped to anywhere after you get past the watch dog. If they claim stupid policies like being unable to match a weekly ad, in-store price, etc -- don't argue, just close chat and try again. The only time I've not been able to get a PM is when they've actually clamped down on a known price mistake that's being abused. Good luck all!

Damn of course its for Eevee as I just bought the Pikachu version from BB.  I would have tried to get some money back if so.

It's both, but the ad only shows Eevee. You can still try but it's a slightly harder sell to get the PM.

How would they not know you’re giving the wrong zip code when you place the order? Can’t they see where you’re actually getting it shipped or picked up?

If you pay via credit card/debit card only you can change the pickup location or you could say you are on vacation. You can’t click Make Changes on the order status if you use a Best Buy gift card or certificate.

I was able to get the price match just a bit ago via chat. It was not hard at all, gave dude the link and done. Of course it was for Eevee but that is fine, did not want to press the issue at all. Also got the steel book.

It took 3 chats (because 1st 2 said in store only so wasn't able to PM) but 3rd was extremely nice and easy going and got me my refund no problem.  Thanks OP!!

I purchased it and had it shipped to me like 2 weeks ago so I decided to try to get a partial refund and was successful.

I did the purchase through Best Buy while on the chat with them and opted for in store pick up.

:\ I just got off the phone with someone who maybe learned english 35 minutes prior to my call. He says because Meijer's price is only for this week, they can't do the price match. He says the sale price of $29.99 has to be the permanent price at the competitor in order for them to honor it. 

 

Dude's lucky I'm not wearing a MAGA hat.

Just a thought.. with a bunch of us cags getting a copy of Eevee/Pikachu maybe someone could start a thread in the switch section to work out trades with each other so we can all at least complete the Pokédex.

(And no, I did not volunteer... I have little free time ;) )

Click the shopping cart icon (did this on the website), you'll then see a little help icon on the right hand side of the screen, click that and you will see "Chat With Us"

I've got to try the pricematch chat tomorrow. Daughter wants the Eevee version for her birthday, which is at the end of this month. Had resigned myself to getting it with GCU. This is a much better deal and worth the effort.

Just placed my order with Sarah. Easy process I am nowhere near a Meijer, but she didnt ask for a zip code. Also didn't say anything when I had it shipped to a MD address. Thanks OP!

Just did the price match through online chat. Almost went flawlessly! Doesn't look like I'll be getting the steelbook unless I can talk them into it when I pick it up at the store.

 

Eddy Allen (17:50:30 GMT) : The steelbook is available if the order is placed with complete price as in price match the items that are available with the competitor are only available, therefore the steelbook cannot be processed as the competitor does not provide the steelbook with it product.

Update: Asked about the steelbook when picking up the order. They tossed one in the bag, no questions.

 

Thanks for posting this deal, Jodou, and thanks to everyone else for the discussion on how to get it pricematched at BBY. Particularly mojarr0...I basically used your transcript as, well, a script.

That is awesome. I am glad it helped you. I tried to do another one over chat but they also did not include the steelbook because their price match policy does not include bundled items. When I went into bestbuy they didn't know it was price matched, but said in order to get the steelbook I would have to repurchase at full price. I just returned it. I'll try again later.

Did the BB online chat, they helped no problem, also the link for the Pikachu edition from the Meijer website ALSO works for PMing (not sure if that was said here already). I asked about getting the steel book, chat helper informed me that the “free gift included policy” is “all “free gifts” included are included when the item is PURCHASED and that it does NOT matter if that purchase price is MSRP or not”, so I was able to get the steel book as well!

Appreciate it. That's the link I've been using and it just comes up blank on any device. Can you get like.. Ip or account banned from chat? Find it quite odd as I've never had a bad or unpleasant experience with chat.

did you get this figured out? Chat isn't loading for me either and I'm not sure why. Neither on my phone nor my laptop in Chrome or Firefox.

I managed to price match but was told I wouldn't get the steetbook because of the price match. Should I stop by the store and let them know I didn't receive it in the mail?

Thanks! The links and transcript in this thread helped. Used chat to get a price match. I ordered it myself during the chat and they issued a refund to cover the difference. Getting the game plus steelbook via in-store pick up soon.

Well ironically it started working yesterday. It's definitely an issue on their end.

I had called CS and she said it must be down because she couldn't pull it up either, but it wasn't down since I could pull it up at work.

I gave up but then randomly it started working again. Of course now I have no need for it atm lol.

I was also able to get the to price match and did in store pickup.  Gave them 44011 as a zip when they asked.  When she said I could price match it, she asked for my info and found my best buy account and asked if I wanted it shipped to my home.  I asked for store pick up and she pulled up my preferred store and said no problem.  Paid, picked up and got the steel book.
