I'd definitely buy more from them if their prices were as good as Amazon....let's see how this price war shapes up this season!

Not valid from Nov. 18 through Nov. 26th - which means they won't be price matching any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals.

Which is understandable, since people will be showing the prices and lines would be even longer. But overall, this is a great thing. Can't wait to see some of the deals out there.

Exactly.

Also they don't match their own online prices, why would they do it for others?

Wrong. They have and do match their own online prices. It's part of their price matching policy, and has been for many, many years.

Yeah Target is a pain. First I went to this "City Target" and they say they aren't participating in Target's matching program. Then the guy at another Target said they don't match Target.com when I wanted Lady and the Tramp for 8.99. He eventualy relented and let me do it.

Sorry not wrong, you need to explain that to my local stores, I stopped going in there because of this and other reasons. My local stores also refused to price match other local stores.

That's a problem with just your store then. If you have any troubles, you need to point out to them the corporate policy on their corporate website that they need to follow. If they still refuse to honor the policy, then you need to escalate it to corporate headquarters, and have them push compliance down from the top. There's no reason they shouldn't be following their published policy.

Here is the policy:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Payment-...at204400050011

In most of the Best Buy's that I've been in, it is also posted in huge posterboard near the checkout registers.

Far easier to just buy it where the price is lower and the store actually wants your business

I realize that's their policy, but I don't even bother going into a BB to price match anymore as they would blatantly refuse to honor this. I would even flat out tell them "You're not following your own price match guarantee." Their response was they couldn't because that meant they would be selling it for less than their cost!

When I saw this thread title I thought to myself, "Yeah right."
