    Default Don't wait on backorder of Amazon/Letstalk!!!

    I just got two more GNs for my wife and my mother-in-law during the last weekend. I now have three GNs (and one Thunderbolt) in total!!!

    I was thinking of buying them from Amazon originally. However, my local Bestbuy had the pricematch until January 25th. They matched the Amazon price of GN and sold two GNs for $229/each - Family Plan Upgrade.

    If you are planning to get a GN, but don't want to wait for backorder, you might want to try this route.

    The GNex is $250 at Let's Talk and Amazon isn't even listing a price on their web site any more for the GNex.

    I ran into that problem when I was upgrading mine. The rep at Bestbuy called Amazon and found the pricing of $229 for me, interestingly. I was also under the impression that $249 was the price before I went into the Bestbuy store, and they found even better pricing.

    That's for a new account. Mine was upgrade of an existing family plan account. For whatever price you get from Amazon, Bestbuy seems to match it. Another guy next to me opened a new account for $149 before I left Bestbuy.

    Then they raised it to $190 and then they pulled it off their site entirely. When they get it back in stock, it will be $230 for a new plan according to Amazon customer service.

    Wow! Then, I must consider myself very lucky to upgrade existing family account at the right timing with right price ($229).

    I also tried exactly what you did and got the same result. It seems like Amazon is now aware of this price match from Bestbuy and doesn't want to lose its customers. Very cunning, Amazon!

    costco has them in stock also for cheaper. plus, you get to return them in 3 months when new phones come out to get something better.

    before i got mine, i called several best buys on multiple days to see if they would price match amazon (new subscriber). got a NO everytime. they wouldnt even price match radio sHacks website deal which was $219 last week.

    Thats strage, you got lucky because they are not supposed to price match online prices of online only retailers... Im curious as to how much the costco price is currently... I need a store that has them for cheaper so I can get the price match via best buy.

    I called 3 and the 3rd time was a charm. The manager told me that they are allowed to price match online for mobile phones only. The other managers just said no. She told me it very much depends on who you get when you call or goto the store. I got the idea from some guy in california.

    Best buy mobile is allowed to do it, not the other areas of the store.

    For those who are about to order to Amazon, it appears that Amazon got GN back in stock. Amazon website shows the pricing on the website if you put your number. With that, you can do the price matching at the bestbuy.
