Does anyone have an actual link that shows Best Buy's policy about price drops?

I've seen some blog postings, but none of them actually detail the 30-day price-drop policy everyone is talking about. I've tried to search for it myself but haven't found it.

I know I'm being paranoid, I'd just kinda like to read it before doing it, y'know?

I have very petite feet. Some people tell me that they're not sure if it's a man or a woman coming down the hall. I've been told I have a very feminine step.

most stores only match for 7 days. not a month. the return policy is a month. not a price match

even then now that i think about it. the return for hardware i think is only 14 days. and once again; that's the return policy, not the price match policy.

So sure you could return the hardware, but they aren't going to resell it to you at a cheaper price, they'll make you go get a new system. Then you still won't have access to the twenty free games because they are tied to the system you logged on with.

I don't know why everyone thinks they will get some loophole. They are confusing the return policy with a price match policy. its apples to oranges.

Okay, a price match policy, return policy, whatever. The policy everyone is planning to use when they get their money back on the 12th. I still have yet to see a link outlining the actual policy.

trust me ziggi. they are going to get burned. just wait for the price drop and get one then. everyone thinking they will "beat" the system will be in for a rude awakening. I don't care what they do one way or another, but i've already outlined why its not going to work

Here's Future Shop's price guarantee. This is the same company as Best Buy in Canada.

http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/help/our-retail-store-policies/hc8077.aspx?path=1bb4ba90ece58d72b4b62762e477d227en06?HelpCategoryId=&HelpTitleId=HC8077&ReferringPageTitle=Help%20Search%20Results%20-%20Future%20Shop

Scroll down about half way:

If our own price is reduced in the last 30 days*:

Present us with a copy of our original invoice.
We will refund you the difference between the purchase price and the current price.


I know it works as I have personally done it before when a TV I bought went on sale.
