Itís usually pretty easy to figure out where the price match is coming from. Are they Criterion or Arrow releases for half off? Barnes and Noble. Does the price end in a 6 (like, $9.96)? Walmart. (Ditto for other unusual cents, but the 6 is a Walmart hallmark.) Otherwise, itís almost certainly Target or Best Buy.

I still take advantage of Amazonís price matches when I have gift cards or credit card rewards to burn, or if itís a case where I donít meet a free shipping threshold at the original retailer, but otherwise, I try to support the original source when I can.

Some prefer one giant corporation over another for reasons.

Stopped by another Best Buy B&M in my area, about 15-minutes north.

In comparison to the B&M down the street from where I live, this particular store had all the shippers out. It was great!

Picked up a few more 4Ks (@ $9.99):

Arrival (2016)
Elysium (2013)
The Fifth Element (1997)
Prometheus (2012)

I ordered Godzilla vs Kong 4K and it says 1-2 months. My question is how great is my chance I'll receive a copy?

I'm with you on this one. I placed one order with Best Buy on 11/15/21. A total of 12 4K blu-rays and 1 blu-ray. The blu-ray was cancelled from the order. For what reason I have no idea since it's still listed on the site. One 4K blu-ray was shipped by USPS and arrived in 2 days. The rest was shipped by UPS. But then transfered to USPS in CA. And right now those 4K blu-rays are in limbo.
I brought a total of ten 4K & standard blu-rays from Amazon and all arrived in 2-3 days after being shipped. Yeah I know Best Buy has no control what happens after the items have been shipped out.

If I'm not mistaken all the titles $9.99 or less are available at Best Buy, as a part of Black Friday sales.

It's just Amazon Price-Matching again, outside of the titles above that threshold.

I spot-checked 6 titles and none are available in 4K at Gruv.

Many of the same titles are available at Best Buy, but some are cheaper at Amazon. For example, Ghostbusters II in 4k is $15.19 at Amazon (with free shipping for Prime members) and $22.99 at Best Buy (and you have to pay for shipping). Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is $22.99 at Best Buy ($13.50 at Amazon).

Re: 4K / Ultra HD Blu-ray: Discounts and deals

I was actually about looking at those $13-15+ items that I thought were in the cheaper list elsewhere. I guess maybe some of those have moved to in-store only at BBY -- I hadn't looked at their online inventory in a while

These are Sony titles, therefore unavailable at Gruv. Some have been available everywhere else since early Nov as part of BF pricing and some are revised prices. For e.g. 'Guns of Navarone' has been $19.99 for a while and is now 15% cheaper. And yes, Amazon is PMing BBY as usual but not on all.
