Question about Best Buy Price Policy

I have a question. I know Best Buy will match their own price within 30 days, if they lower it. And their site claims they will price match + 10% from a different store. But would this work:

Xbox is currently $299 but rumours have it coming down to $199 within two weeks. So if I buy an Xbox from them now for $299, in 2 or 3 weeks could I get them to match that price, plus 10% since other stores woud also be selling it for $199 within the 30 day period?

I don't think you'd have a problem getting them to match the $199 but I think they only do 10% if the other store has a price LOWER than theirs!

I believe they will PM there own pricing BUT you only get the differnce between what you paid and the new price if you are PM'ing Best Buy to Best Buy.

Now if you are PM'ing Best Buy to a different B&M, then they will refund you the difference plus give you 10% on top of that AS LONG AS they can call the competitor and the competitor has the product IN STOCK.

A few of the stores I was in tonight were already sold out of the PS2.
