Also, a place like NCIX (many others exist) matches prices online and ships ANYWHERE in the U.S/Canada. Besides that, there is no sales tax, and shipping is always free on items like the 3770k.

Overall, your post is invalid. Good night.

you are very wrong. This is EXACTLY the way i got my 3770k. Best Buy price matched MC's INSTORE ONLY price. No sweet talk, no hassle. Just a simple question.. "hey, will you do this?" "Sure thing!" Unless youve done it, or tried to do it, dont talk out of your ass. And its not even a promotion, the MC price has been that price for a very long time...

^^ I think he means you can't go to bestbuy and ask them to pricematch MC unless you also have an MC in your city. Every pricematch I've read says "local competitors" only.

It is actually quite funny because MC doesn't offer a online / in store price, its only sold in stores and only sold at that price, making it not a promotion.
But the funnier part is, best buy doesn't even have the cpu in store so it has to be placed to order online biggrin.gif
(im assuming your best buy is like mine has 3 power supplies , 8 video cards, and 10 hard drives, then 300 tv's smile.gif )

What is considered a local retail competitor?
A local retail competitor for retail store purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25 mile radius) of your local Best Buy store. A local retail competitor for BestBuy.com purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25 mile radius) as either the billing address or the shipping address on record for the purchase.

I dont have a Micro Center in my state. There isnt a Micro Center within 10 hours drive. If you read BBs "low price guarantee" it states any local competitor or qualifying online retailer. "Qualifying" is pretty much at the discretion of the store. From what i gathered from my talks with the manager... most BBs will honor MC's prices, as well as neweggs and Frys

You might have just gotten a lax store manager:

If you find a lower price on a qualifying product at a local retail competitor?s store or a designated major online retailer, we will match the price. At the time of purchase, we will match the current pre-tax price for new, identical, immediately available products from a local retail competitor's store and these designated major online retailers: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, Frys.com, hhgregg.com, HP.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com, Newegg.com, OfficeDepot.com, OfficeMax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, TigerDirect.com and Walmart.com. We will match prices between our stores and BestBuy.com®. We will also match prices post purchase if we lower our price within 15 days of your purchase.

Notice, no MicroCenter.

i just realized the person writing the Price Guarantee page failed at proof reading and copy pasted the clause twice. lol almost as funny as typos on newegg smile.gif

and yes, the store has to order the CPU for you, you pay sales tax, but no shipping.

see edited post biggrin.gif

He basically told me they had to match those stores, because if they didnt, they couldnt compete most of the time. So yeah... it may be in writing, but theyll do it

I never said you can't do it. I said they don't support it, MC isn't even in their retailer list. I bought a headset and it broke after the 30 day return, I bought the same one and replaced the package and returned the broken one for full money back and kept the working headset. Their employees are dumb as I mentioned, which is why BB is going bankrupt.
