VisionTek HD 4850 for $149.99 at BestBuy - Page 2  

post #11 of 48
10% off is at http://a.slickdeals.net/attachment.p...3&d=1213991860

My local BB had a few in stock, it was still labeled as 199.99 on the shelves though; had to show the manager their online circular page 22 to get the discount... And since they had to do an override they wouldn't take the 10% off coupon $160 is still a great price though.

I just went to the store in Flint, MI and they weren't on the shelves. The rep looked them up and it turns out BB officially releases them on the 22nd (they had them in the back). Problem is, the 25% off is only good until the 21st (probably intentional), and the store wouldn't allow him to sell it to me.

I might still pick it up on Sunday with 12% off. After tax (but no shipping) I'd end up paying about $10 more than I would if I got the Asus from Newegg with a $30. They even all the links to 4850 rebates down on Newegg so there's no telling if they'll even be honored.

Make sure you get yourself a copy of the sales paper this week. It states that all Visiontek items are 25% off so that should save you some and then you can use the 12% on top of that.

They have to take your coupon. It's not your fault that they didn't update it in their system. Just go up there and talk to the manager. Show him in the paper that all Visiontek items come with the discount. The coupon can be used in conjunction with anything except the specifics of what's listed and BB screwing up and not putting the correct price in the system.

It has to do with the way their system is set up. You can't combine an override and a coupon. People at SD were reporting the same issue as well.

Technically they aren't supposed to be selling them til the 22nd (conveniently 1 day after the sale ends) so consider yourself lucky if yours has them out for display. I had the guy go through the backroom to get one.

Strange because they've done it for me before all it requires is a manager override and I'm more than happy to wait for the manager to get off their ass and come over to make sure I get my discount. I think mine was done on a price match though and wasn't really supposed to be done but there is a way you can circumvent this as well now that I think about it. Buy the item and get them to override the price. Then leave the store and come back inside with your coupon. They'll re-ring up your reciept and this time apply your coupon to it. A buddy of mine has done that alot when it came to pricematching especially on those Garmin Nuvi 200w's we got 2 weeks ago.

Me too but the 4850 beats the 9800GTX so I'm willing to get one of these now and then get another later. It's not like you're spending $700 on 1 card afterall hehe

I was driving from school out to my best buy at home when a construction detour took me right by another best buy. I stopped in and they had 2 on the shelves marked $199. I got the manager to do an override and use the 25% off. They would not take my 10% off coupon but the price is still amazing. I now have 2 4850s and no motherboard with crossfire. I need an X38 NOW! rep+ to OP.
