Had an wonderful talk with someone from Best Buy!

So i called my local best buy and basically told them exactly what my intentions were and what I planned to do (price matching, getting games and the difference, etc). Not only did the manager there tell me that it was 100% within their policy to do just that, that it was an excellent idea. He said as soon as I was done talking to him he was going to call a buddy of his who was on the fence about this price drop to come in and do this trick.

So anyone still hung up on legal doubts, put your mind at ease, it's totally legit. I'm getting my 3DS today! Woot!

or they will put up a trollface and refuse to price-match the 3DS, leaving you with a scam and Best Buy with lots of $$$

Why would anyone be concerned about the legality of doing something like that? No one was. There are just the butthurt few spewing some s*** about the morality of doing it. All stores will be doing the price match with full awareness of the price drop/Ambassador.

So your Best Buy's cash registers will ring up the 3DSs as $169 instead of $249 before August 12th?

No, but they will give you $80 after august 12th if you have your receipt of the purchase.

Store policies differ but I think at Best Buy you have to buy within 7 days of a price drop.
