Apparently Sony disagrees since they even went to the trouble of putting a "football" mode button on the remote for 2014 models.

Elite Plus has a 45 day return policy.
You may luck out and get a price match past 15 days if you are elite/elite plus. If they are not willing to price match past 15 days, you could return the product and re-buy it. If you did not that for a price match, they may charge you a re-stocking free which would totally defeat the purpose.
Actually, I think the website says you can do a pricematch to bestbuy's own price ONCE within your return period, so the time limit does vary depending on your elite status. Don't let them try to pull a restocking fee on you. Match to other stores must be at purchase time, and post-purchase you are only supposed to get one adjustment. But of course they do whatever they feel like letting you do, which is generally the most restrictive rule they can think of unless you point out terms on their website for them, since most BB reps have less than a high school education and can't even type. And make sure you get some confirmation # of whatever they say they are doing and keep track it gets done, or otherwise it won't get done.

I have spent a little time with each in 3D. I wasn't disappointed with the 55, but now that I've seen the 65, I noticed on certain things like white letters (subtitles), you will see a slight grid pattern from the half-res instead of the full white it would be on the 65. 55 3D feels like 3D, 65 3D gives each item on screen a more solid realistic look in HD where you almost forget you are watching 3D.
