Price Drop Day; Best Buy price match is a go

#11shadetail1Posted 8/12/2011 1:55:17 PM
I got my 3DS last weekend. I got my $80 rebate about 40 minutes ago. Don't let anyone tell you Best Buy isn't price matching the 3DS, including the Best Buy employees themselves.

So if you bought a 3DS at Best Buy within the past 30 days (i.e. July 13th or later), get on over there with your receipt.

I did this exact same thing but with Target, I've had my 3ds 4 days before they announced the price drop and I was pissed till I found out they would match it. So I got the lower price plus i'm in the ambassador thing.

^^ Yeah, a few extra dollars because of sales tax. My rebate was more like $86. But in any case, it is happening. So just FYI to other Best Buy customers.

This guy is what price matching was made for. I got mine a few days after launch, and really didn't care when drop was announced, short of saying"awesome!". Had it been 3 days before, I would have been irate. Glad to hear it buddy.

You people disgust me. I hope Nintendo never does anything to try and reimburse people again. You don't deserve it in the slightest.

I'm an early adopter, and I couldn't care less. It doesn't reduce the quality of my life, so why should I be upset? I'm happy for them, and anyone else who takes advantage of this. It's not like millions of people are doing this. Most people either:

A) Aren't planning to buy the 3DS until later.
B) Didn't wanna risk the $80
C) Don't care about the 20 games and plan to simply buy the good ones when they're available.
D) Didn't know about the Ambassador Program.
E) Already bought the 3DS

Sour grapes much? You realize that price adjustments are standard retail policy, not a loophole or a scheme, right? There's nothing wrong with them.
