    I want to buy something (Sony Clie NR70) and I can get it online w/ Best Buy for $474.99

    If I go into Best Buy today and buy it...will it be $474.99 - or will it be it's MSRP of $499.99?

    Thanks for any help...

    I'm not sure on the pricing, but Best Buy tries to use the argument that BB and BB.com are separate entities. Therefore they do not have to match the online prices. There is a huge fiasco going on with the mistake in pricing a GEForce video card at BB.com. I won't go into the details but people went out and found proof that they are not separate entities and that BB.com is registered to BB, Inc and maintains the same address and phone number as BB, Inc.
