That is kinda what I meant when I posted. Sorry if it seemed otherwise redface.gif. Most of the stuff that you would price match to microcenter at bestbuy would be CPUs or MOBOs anyway... but no worries, I have a MC ~15min drive and another ~45min drive from where I live biggrin.gif.

Making up false scenarios to get them to price match a loss leader item from a retailer with a limited footprint is not going to encourage them to expand their willingness to embrace the niche nerd PC builder market. Not to mention that this would never pass an ethics smell test. The secondary problem it could create is Microcenter restricting the loss leader CPU and/or CPU-mobo combos they offer to stores that do not have a Bestbuy in direct local competition with as it is no longer incentive. (If they wanted to give away CPU's for a loss all day we could all buy them from their online store and there wouldn't be a 1 per household limit.)

edit-Every part of my sig rig came from Microcenter excluding the case and PSU and I LOVE having that store across the street from my office. Bestbuy can die in a fire for all I care. My concern is that this will harm those of us who do have a Microcenter locally.

I agree 100%.

Now as far as BB goes ( middle finger to them ) they have been over charging the general public, misleading products and under paying there works for years. so if we the people can get one over them we will, because they DESERVE IT !!!!!

How would this teach Microcenter anything? If anything, it's "teaching" Best Buy to end their price match policy all together because morally deficient individuals somehow feel entitled to another companies pricing policies. Why would Microcenter care that other people are screwing Best Buy? Not fair? Grr, what the hell has happened with society?

It teach them to expand there sales to the rest of the public, how many of millions of dollars have they lost because of in-store prices only. microcenter needs to learn a sale is a sale and until they learn this there company will never expand. F Best Buy there in the hole as is because of there out rage prices, if they dont continue with there price match they will continue to put a nail in there own coffin.

Best buy have to get involved into priced matching or else they will be forced to close many stores due to a low profit.

On washing machines and TVs. They get 0.002 percent of their revenue from boxed CPUs and nerd parts.
