i recall a few years back, best buy advertised that they would beat any advertised price. do they still do this?

the reason i ask is because i bought soldier of fortune 2 for the PC last thursday for $49 and in today's sunday paper they have it for $39 and circuit city has it for $34.

will best buy refund me the difference to match circuit city's price?

I don't know, but you can always do the old switcharoo. Which is go to Best Buy or Circuit City, buy another one for the lower price. And then later return it with the higher price receipt.

thanks jeditricks!

i looked for this at their site but couldn't find it. i would of thought that since they are called "best buy" this would be at the top of their web page.:)

i wonder how much of a hassle the customer service person is gonna give me. on the commercial i saw a while back, the CS guy was so nice.:)

looks like best buy owes me $16.50!:D

If you're referring to the ad in the paper...Best Buy ALWAYS sells things cheaper on Sunday mornings.

Derek, it was indeed quite difficult to find that page, they certainly didn't make it obvious on the main page.

Good luck to you on getting that money back.

10% of the difference... not 10% of the price.

E.P.,

$49.99-$34.99=$15.00x10%=$1.50+$15.00=$16.50:)

oops. Didn't see the $49 drop to $39 bit. But the difference (from "their point of view") would only be between BB's $39 and CC's $34. I know. I used to work there.
