I went in to BestBuy mobile today and the guy at the store was like, yeah I can't sell you a phone that cheap, I'll lose money on it. Im going to try a BestBuy store wednesday and see if I can get this cheaper. Would be sweet so I can use that extra saved cashed to buy a nexus tablet.
Previous Phone: HTC Evo 4g
Current Phone: Galaxy Note 2 - Rooted
Current Rom - Stock

Who needs an app to make fart noises. There's an ass for that.

I got my first price match at a bb mobile. There are some real dumb employees out there. He doesn't lose any money, he gets paid hourly and no commission on sales so it doesn't hurt them one bit. He just wants to show he can say no. Oh well. Good luck at the best buy. Best way to show that employee that said no is to bring the receipt from bb and show him not everyone is uptight. Unless the bb store refuses it also due to holidays being over.

Last week I saw that Amazon dropped the new customer price online to $149.99 so I went to the store to get my price match guarantee.

Now yesterday I saw that the SIII is now $0.01 for new customers and the Note II is $99.99. I went back to the store and got price matched again before my grace period ran out this Wed.

In the end, I got the Note II for $99.99 and my wife's SIII for $0.01, I am one happy camper!

It's the holidays so im guessing we can all use as much extra cash as possible.

Just want to throw in my previous experience from my post in December. This may be different now that we are not in the holiday season anymore but i hope it helps.

Complete BS......

I even printed the webpage and took it in that said backordered and they price matched me and also no where on their price match guarantee policy does it state that if an item is backordered in the previous store that they cannot perform the price match. If I were you and that was my only Best Buy option, I would print their policy online and take it with you while asking them to point out where it states what they are saying (ofcourse run thru it again to be certain).

EDIT!!!!

I apologize but it appears that they do have such a clause on their policy......

"What if the competitor does not have the item in stock or has limited quantities of the product?
Sometimes a retailer will advertise a product as having limited quantities in stock. If the item is out of stock or the competitor has advertised as limited quantities of an item, it is not eligible for price matching. Likewise, if Best Buy has a product that is advertised as being limited in quantity it will not be eligible for price matching."

What a bunch of bull......

Sorry I couldn't be of more help....

I didn't even take a print out. I just walked in and asked if they price match amazon. The sales rep said yes, he looked up the price on Amazon, and I walked out with a new phone for the amazon price. He even told me to keep checking amazon to see if the price comes down any lower so I could come in and get the difference back. This is definitely the only way I'm getting phones from now on.

my bestbuy when i told them about the price on amazon, they just looked it up on the sales persons smartphone, and then on the computer as well, they didnt even care it was backordered.

also i traded my evo 3d in which i did the buy back program and got a $210 gc to use to purchase my note 2.
