They seem to be ready to please on the pricematch lately.
Hmmm, Interesting. The Best Buy store nearest me (more than an hr away, or maybe a little less, depending on how crazy I drive) is small and doesn't stock a whole lot as it is. We drove all the way there a year ago when I needed some TIM (any brand TIM) and a sata data cable for a friend's computer, and they had neither in the store at the time.
The first sales rep we talked to in the computer parts section didn't even have a clue what 'thermal paste' was. I'm not kidding. It took several employees, incl a floor manager/supervisor of some sort, to help us come to the determination that they didn't have anything in stock that we needed. After that I've avoided going back and my opinion of Best Buy I fear has been tainted forever.
That said, I may have to add their site to my online comparative shopping. Thanks.

I just had a look at Best Buy's "Lowest Price' page, and according to the fine print they list which businesses they will price match with, Newegg is on there (maybe it wasn't back then?), but they do have a bunch of exclusions like they won't honor lot of sales prices, like 'coupon offers', 'daily deals' etc.
