Was just about to post this. I called them to price adjust for the purchase last week (which they granted). Awesome deal.

Well, I went over to my local BestBuy to place an order... Magnolia still has the $2500 price and when the manager checked the BB website he was impressed at the price. Magnolia has their own inventory and had one unit in stock, they now have zero units in stock

The fellow I worked with before wasn't working today but the manager gave him credit for the sale, nice since they get a commission.

Was available everywhere and online earlier today -- now only available in-store in one location in Northern VA/DC area.

Going quick ... I may have snoozed and lost.

Hey Skrill, great looking home theater you have!

Just checked Best Buy site and the price is $1,599.98. That matches the price on the Denon website. So it was a one day deal.

Hope those who wanted one got one.

Take care,

Same here for me. They honored the $999 price in store for me today, and gave me the benefit of the 10% off coupon. The are sending it overnight to my office. My total came to about $950 with tax.

They said I should get triple points (which would be about 45), but nothing about 10% points. Was that a generally available program? Perhaps I should call customer service about the points. Did you have to open a charge card to get that offer?

They never offered any additional discount - but they didn't put up any kind of fight on the price. Seems to me that they may have been instructed to honor the price for customers inquiring in the store.

Good luck all.

triple points?

I dont know about that
They have had an offer going for about 45 days where reward zone members receive 10% back in reward zone points for items charged on the Best Buy credit card....as long as they dont take a 0% financing offer
I have had a BB credit card for years and have been a reward zone member for years as well

Your last statement which I bolded seems to be accurate

I called a store last night in central Illinois where I work about 2-3 days a month...I have clients there
In any case i always troll the BB there and last time I was there I saw they had a 4520 there...I called yesterday and they told me none were in the store...but asked me for my phone number and they would call me back with options

Anyway...they called me back 30 mins ago and said they could order the unit for the same price as yesterday and how many units was I looking for?....

I did not order more...

But for those still looking...it seems to be the general consensus that they will let you have yesterday's price if you ask

There have a been a LOT of posts today that have said BB has given them the same price as yesterday when asked at the store

They offered me the card offer -- which I declined. Re triple points - they said it had to do with an August labor day/kickoff promotion. Maybe he was wrong, but it would be a nice perk.

I asked the guy at the local BB if he would try looking it up, and sure enough he had one available for 999.98 but it had to be shipped. He was an x4000 owner and couldn't believe how good a deal that was, but he was cool about it. Should arrive between the 11th and 16th. This was about an hour ago.

they seemed to have changed the price tags in the store to reflect the $999 price

I have a picture of the store shelf tag

If anyone needs it send me a PM with your email address

You guys think it's worth upgrading from the X4000? I've been reading some reviews and it seems the 4520 has more issues compared to the X4000.

I just don't see the need to upgrade. I thought about making this upgrade as well, but I'm gonna hold off for now. The two units are more similar than different (probably why I went with the x4000). I probably started wondering because I got a mild case of upgraditis and this is such a great deal if you have an older avr.

I just went to Best Buy an hour ago, and got it for 899. It originally showed 1599 on their system, and then when he added to the cart, it changed to 999. I then gave them the 10% off movers coupon, and am having it shipped for $899 + tax (free ship to store). You may want to just have them add it to the cart and see what happens.

Good for you. I may have to try that . The guy at Magnolia near me would not budge.
