Victory is mine!
I went to Fry's with an Amazon printout for Panasonic BDT210. As I walked in, an employee handed me a little yellow printout that said "Fry's will meet any internet price" and then listed the conditions. Bolstered with confidence, my Amazon printout and little yellow paper in hand, I marched off to the HDTV section. Found the blu-ray section and started rummaging thru it. A salesperson came up to me and asked if he could help, I told him what I was looking for, and he said he didn't think they had any but would go an check. Having gone thru this before with Fry's, I started pulling the 110s out of the rack. Lo and behold, there were 3, unopened or repackaged 210's on the bottom. The salesperson came back and was apologetic that they didn't have any in stock while I was standing there with one under my arm
Sheepishly, he took me over to the register.
I showed him the Amazon ad (which I dl'd yesterday) and he immediately pointed out that the price at the top, under price ranges, listed a used one at 174. I pointed to the middle of the page where the price was listed as 160. He said that it has to be an authorized internet dealer, and the dealer listed under the Amazon heading was for someone else and not Amazon. No way says I, I want this price! So, I made him register on the Amazon site like he was going to buy one and when he did so, a price of 166 came up. I'll take it I said! He called a Manager over and before he could even say anything, I handed my little yellow paper to him and pointed to the Amazon screen.
I am now sitting here in my family room with a brand new Panasonic DMP-BDT210P which I only paid 166 for! I win
