    I just got the weekly promotional e-mail from Best Buy, and they had a link to this announcement that says:

    Dave-
    they must have changed it because it now states very clearly that these sale prices are online only. Too bad because a new Best Buy is opening just six miles away in just under 72 hours as I type this. But who's counting?

    the in store pick up option is working as long as it is at the store you want to pick up from.
    i checked.
    right now i have speed and mash season 2 in my cart with to pick up in store option.
    15.99 and 23.99 for each one.
    pick up in store..no shipping price anyway but also no tax in delaware.
    total of 39.98.
    not bad.
    now i have to return the speed i bought there a couple weeks ago for 18.48 with the school coupon.
    actually i'll turn around and return the one i will buy online because i opened the other on already.

    BestBuy Online also has select Artisan titles for 10% off, such as Terminator 2: Ultimate Edition for $17.99.

    Free Shipping. Not bad.

    One thing I noticed: although it says that "all 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment DVDs" are on sale (and they even italicized the word "all"), that doesn't seem to be the case. I searched for a couple of Fox DVDs that weren't in the clickable categories, like Chain Reaction and the Fantastic Voyage/Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea double feature, and they do not show sale prices.

    Best Buy stores should match their online prices.

    I found this out the other day. I was looking for the DVD Original Sin. Best Buy's website had it for $9.99. I called the store and they had it for $22.99. On the website, I could pay for it with a credit card, then go to the store to pick it up, having paid only $9.99. But I don't have a credit card. I called and talked to someone there at the store, saying why is it that since I don't have a credit card, I have to pay $22.99? She said they would match the online price. When I got there, I was told they always match their own website's prices. (Turns out the DVD was incorrectly marked and was $9.99 in the register system anyway, but they had already researched it, confirmed the online price, and filled out the form to do a price match, so they would have given it to me at that price, anyway.)

    My local BB manager actually told me rather insistently once, several months ago, that they DO match (their own) online prices. And he did. Go figure!

    I've been told the same thing, that Best Buy matches their own website. I've even tested it, and it was true.
