Re: Price Gouging at Best Buy

Oh for goodness' sake...and people wonder why retailers are clamping down on giving honest people discounts and price matches...it's because of unbelieveable people like you!
No retailer has to price match another retailer. It's just a nice thing that they sometimes do in order to keep your business. I guess you were aiming for the additional discount that sometimes retailers give for price matching.
And typically, brick stores won't price match their on-line friends. Some places only price match with proof of a lower price or they price match only local stores. Many do NOT price match Costco or Sam's Club because those people that shop there get deeper discounts because they are a paid member.
I'm glad that the associate at Best Buy stood his ground and refused to price match.
The store did nothing wrong--you were the one that was way out of line. I hope you are proud of yourself--you really showed them, didn't you?
