Circuit City Price Match Question

So I was wanting to get the Lite-On DVD burner that Best Buy has on sale for $129. It has a $20 rebate, and a $30 rebate. So of course, they are sold out online, and my local store is out of them.

So can I go to Circuit City and price match? They have it for $149, and a $30 rebate. Would they price match Best Buy even though they are offering a rebate? Better yet, would they just knock it down to say $109 (figuring in the $20 rebate Best Buy had offered)?

Of course, this all depends on whether my local Circuit City has it, and I imagine even if they do, they'd call Best Buy and find out it's not in stock and tell me to take a hike in so many words....

What do you think?

I'm guessing the $30 rebate is from the manufacturer and the $20 is from Best Buy?

If that's the case, it's unlikely that they will give the $20 difference since it's in rebate form. Why not just call and ask?

I would call, but i'd most likely get someone who would be clueless

I was just asking because I wanted to know if anyone has ever done it.
