I just upgraded my phone to the s5 at my local best buy in Knoxville, TN. It cost me under $13 for an upgrade. Here is how it worked. I signed up at the beginning of the year for the $50 off a phone if you upgraded at Best Buy. They also have a promotion going now that you can get a $50 gift card that you will get via email like 15 days later (the gave it to instantly). Then they price matched Amazon at $112 and some change. So you take the $112 and subtract the $100 in gift cards and you get my $12. That's an awesome deal if you ask me!
Best Buy will price match up to 14 or 15 days so if you recently purchased one from them you can go back and get some of your money back. Hope this helped someone out.

My best buy told me that they don't price match phones, only accessories.

We have 2 in Knoxville, one will and one won't. They both have always told me over the phone they won't but this makes twice they have done it for me.
I read today that you can trade in any working smartphone and get a minimum $100 at best buy.

It's up to managers discretion. I have 5-6 in my city and 2 of them price match amazon. I'm hoping the S5 Prime will be cheaper on Amazon than Best Buy so I can price Match and use my Best Buy card

When I bought another phone last year the best buy sales guy actually told me they were matching the nexus 5 price from Google.

Strange, since Best Buy is not a franchise
