You definitely have better luck with big ticket items. I just picked up Sony XBR for what worked out to be13.5% less than sale price. Asked then what they would be willing to do. He asked what was my price. Told him, asked for 2 mins to go talk to his manager and then came back as said ok. Couldn't say no at that point.

That is because they are on the verge of going out of business. Best Buy is not going to be around much longer.

This is the latest from February 3, 2013 http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/02/01/retailers-close-stores-24-7/1873745/

no luck for me to get lower price in SF Bay Area.
No, I didn't check every store.
They will not price match to Buy Squad as it isn't they list.

I had them price Grey Stone Appliance and it is not on their authorized "list" nor is it local to me. Saved a $400 buying the new top end Samsung F8000. Grey Stone has it $100 cheaper now. Probably helped that I used my buddies premier membership and they "value" me smile.gif

I just got Best Buy to match the price at All Time TV at $1495.00. Best Buy's price was $1599.99. This was for a Samsung UN55F7100 LED. I've not heard of this All Time TV, but it looks like one of those "we ship for free", but actually getting them to do that could be a hassle, or they insist on you buying other things. The sales person at Best Buy squirmed a bit, and did come back at forist saying the manager wanted to know if I was buying anything else to go with my purchase. I told the sales guy no, and a few minutes later he came back and told me he was going to match the price I'd found. what a great deal. Now to go play with my new TV....smile.gif
