The successful effort to bring Best Buy to a profitable position and keep its name reputable is now negated by the effort to turn it into a Rent-A-Center. How desperate can corporate be? To turn a decent company into something I repudiate as much as a cash loan center. But let's not stop there, let's get rid of weekly sale ads so they can label everyday prices as 'sales' and only the informed will know better. Perhaps they figure since they price match, other vendors' adds will do the advertising for them....lol. In the past, I chose to buy products from Best Buy not because they had the cheapest prices, but because they were part of my community and a business that had my respect and support. I can get most products from Amazon in 2 hours or less but chose to drive 35 minutes to support Best Buy. I'm sad to say that this maybe a point of no return for me if this is their new norm. If so, good bye Best Buy. It was good knowing your old self.

Thanks for the update. I wasn't aware their price match policy had changed. The last price match request for me was around December on a Oled LG TV. It will be interesting to watch their profit and stock price value change in the next 6-12 months.

In the interest of correcting some incorrect information (for other users who might read this post), Best Buy continues to price match more than just Amazon.
We'll match the product prices of key online and local competitors for immediately available products.
At the time of sale, we price match all local retail competitors (including their online prices) and we price match products shipped from and sold by these major online retailers: Amazon.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, HP.com and TigerDirect.com.
This means that there are potentially a large number of stores that we will price match, if they are local to our stores.

unfortunately over the past few months you have stopped pricematching NewEgg, B&H, HHGregg, Rakuten, Frys, OfficeDepot, OfficeMax, Sears, Staples, Target and walmart, unless they are local.

I was told by Best Buy on Twitter that if it's sold and shipped by Newegg they still will. I complained on Twitter about how the local store didn't price match so oh well I'll just get it somewhere else and Best Buy's Twitter account told me they still do and asked me what store, what day, etc. so they could contact them and remind them of the policy.
