Online Vendor for Price Matching Dilemma + Macbooks $150-$200 off [Best Buy]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is probably not the place for this thread but I couldn't figure out where to put it. Feel free to move it elsewhere mods.

Worst Buy is offering some incredible deals this weekend on Macbooks. $100 off plus $100 for the back-to-school sale if you registered for their coupon before a couple days ago. Otherwise it's a $50 off coupon, which is still a total of $150 off. Pretty great until you factor in sales tax, and then it's only marginally better than Amazon's normal price.

Anyone aware of any vendors that would be up for price matching + matching the back-to-school promotion? Amazon is down for it unofficially, but they ran out of stock of the 13" Macbook Airs. Newegg is not down. J&R is not down for that big of a discount. I'm tapped!

Anyone fare any better in their experience with price matches with an out-of-state vendor?

And once again sorry for the semi-off topic post.

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to accomplish. Is there not a Best Buy somewhat close to you? If you've gotta pay tax, you can just write it off at the end of the year...assuming you're not misusing the coupon.

Amazon usually charges $20-100 more for MacBooks on their website because you're not paying tax, so why not get it at your local Best Buy and support them as a local business?

Yeah
NCIX price matches anyone in Canada that ships and has items in stock is what I use the most. But they don't carry Macs only the accessories and third party upgrades.
