    Default Why is S3 $100 more off contract @ Best Buy?

    I'm not due 4 an upgrade until November so I had planned on using a store credit I have 2 help off set the cost of the phone. Every other place is selling phone off contract for $599 or less. Best Buy is selling it 4 $699. Anybody know why?

    I believe that of you tell them about it being $100 cheaper somewhere else they will price match it... heard of some ppl doing that before...

    Best Buy will price match it. I called one of the local stores yesterday. They have to call your local Verizon and verify what price they have and then they can match it.

    FYI, I picked mine up from Best Buy, no contract pricing, and they price matched AT&T at $549. The guy that sold it was genuinely shocked that AT&T was selling it for so much less. And he didn't call to check the price. He just went to their website, saw it, called his manager over and had him override the price.

    They sell for more because they would rather sell the phone with a contract. I had them price match to Verizon when I bought my incredible but had to argue with them because the sales rep said they couldn't do it. Even worse he said he would call only one store and if it wasn't in stock he wouldn't do the price match. That's the kind of BS that's putting them out of business.

    It's all about the Benjamins. But to their defense, BB will price match.

    Nothing new. Best Buy always lists the full retail price higher than the carrier. But in most cases they price match.

    Because BB is evil and a rip off...and they hire people who dont know what the F they are talking about. Seriously...I hate BB.

    Hate to burst bubbles here, but according to BB policy they will not price match contact cell phone prices, see . Now I guess fine print does not say anything about off contract, but it also lists the only vendors that they will officially price match with, and none of the major carriers are listed. If managers /others have been providing a price match, that is on their own discretion so if you are turned away don't be surprised.

    Why? Because they are an independent reseller and can set any price they want.
