Best Buy not selling Vita or Vita bundles for 170, at least not now

#1Makeveli_livesPosted 11/28/2013 5:18:41 PM
Just came back from one. He rang it up and it came to 200, I lol'd and said it was supposed to be 170. He checked the site, it's 200. Checked the ad, no mention of the Vita whatsoever. Had to leave emptyhanded since I couldn't prove it. And the articles posted are all third party sites so they can't match it.

And I saw them on the website hours ago for 170, checked the site in the store (on my phone) and it's back up to 200.

WTF Best Buy? I'm assuming it's a clerical error or whatever but if not, why in god's name would they raise the price on the day with the biggest discounts of the year?

You went shopping a day early ~,~
Try again in a few hours....they line up outside near the gate for these events.

Best Buy opened at 6pm to start their sales.

Unless, for whatever reason, they were on sale early for 170 as reported by numerous people this week then raised to 200 for god knows why over this 6 hour time period and then lowered again once it's actually friday at midnight to 170 again.

But that makes no goddamn sense.

Not 100% sure but has anyone said they got one for $170 at the store this week? Maybe it was just online this week and the in store price is only for Black Friday?

I would assume they are running the Black Friday prices when they open today, but depending on what you are up to tomorrow you could always go back? Doesn't seem worth it though since it's only $30. Try watching amazon?

I don't troll and usually could care less if other people do. If you continuously troll me, expect a bizarre, off the wall reply.

I have cash. My credit and debit accounts don't have enough to buy it and I don't want to go through the hassle of filling them up enough to buy it. Plus, the amazon bundle comes with 3 digital game vouchers and only a 4GB card. 1 of which is PS+, 1 of which will be PS+ sometime soon, and 1 of which was on PS+ for the PS3 a while ago. So I 'own' them all already. And the walking dead season 1, which I bought a while ago.

So I really don't want the Amazon bundle at all really.

I bought one at Best Buy myself for $170 two days ago and picked it up at the local store. The sale was only until the 27th.

I woke up this morning with a bloody nose. I thought, "How did this get into bed with me ?"

I did, he said it still didn't count since apparently Sony doesn't have the credibility to set it's own prices through it's official blog.
