Does Amazon Price match everything?

I'm waiting for them to match Best Buy's price of 18.99 for Nakita season 1 on blu ray. While they do state they can't price match everything, I've never seen them not price match a competitor. While I can go to BB and pick it up I would rather not make the trip and save a few pennies of gas and tax

Any thoughts?

Send them an e-mail and ask if they price match the item for you.

Ok, I'll try that but I thought the online submission did the trick.

Best Buy has free shipping. Sure, you still have to pay tax, but if you order it from Amazon, you have to pay Use Tax later.

^ Yeah. They price match a lot, but quite often I see some Best Buy and Target sale prices that go unmatched. Ime, there's really no rhyme or reason to it, sometimes they'll match pretty quickly, sometimes they'll wait to Tuesday or Wednesday, and sometimes they just don't.

I'd say that the best thing to do would be to buy it at Best Buy, and then return it IF Amazon price matches it before the sale ends.

Oh well. Got tired of waiting...took a old double dip dvd in and got a 5.00 coupon to make up for the tax.
