    As an team lead in a Best Buy Mobile, we do not charge any deductible on any phones purchased with the Geek Squad Protection Plan. We will swap out your phone with a refurbished phone within a few days depending on what model of phone you purchased. Newer phones will and can take a few weeks (note 2, gs3, rotten fruits, Optimus) to receive a different phone. We can also if you choose too, send your phone for repairs, which will also take time. With the GSP, we offer our geek squad app which has locked and found, which is an app that allows you to lock and wipe your phone from any computer. It also allows you to snap an incognito photo from front camera and gps track your phone and sound an alarm that can be turned off with a custom pin number. I challenge anyone to find and protection plan that is better and gives loaner phones without deductibles for any damage caused.

    Question on your picture that was listed @ 149.99
    Did you have an "upgrade" or new line of service?
    I am tempted to go into BB saying the note is 149.99 on amazon wireless, some people said they dont price match Sprint, especially since I need to upgrade my phone...

    Any luck on what to say would be helpful.

    I wouldn't expect it given that these are separate products with separate model numbers. They are even different hardware-wise, the ATT one has a SIMM slot whereas the Sprint one has an embedded SIMM card that you can't replace.

    That being said, I believe it's still possible, just not likely. The reason is that I think BB reps have somewhat a wide lattitude as to what to accept. There are some BB reps who come here and they might be able to confirm, but it seems it's somewhat flexible. When I went to get my Sprint Note 2, there were a few online stores that were offering it for $250, so I did a price match with them. The store that I used specifically was Circuitcity.com, which I guess is an entity that bought Circuit City's name and sells only online. When I mentioned it to the rep, he had no idea that such a store existed (and to be honest neither did I until that week!), but he just accepted my word for it without saying he needed to go check the site. I had printed out a copy of the webpage from circuitcity.com, but never showed it to him because he just said ok without needing any confirmation. That could have been because it was only a difference of $50 and price matching where the difference is $100 or $150 would require much more careful scrutiny, I don't know. Or it could just be that the guy liked/trusted me and plus I'm a rewardzone silver premier member, so maybe he thought it was not worth trying to nickel and dime me and risk pissing off a loyal customer? Who knows.

    It's great that bb is matching online competitors. I just wish they left this policy forever and not just for holidays. I guess it's good that I renewed this month. Going today to see if they will price match the $150 amazon price. Well post if I have success.

    I was able to get the $150 price match today at a Best Buy Mobile. The only catch was that instead of walking out of the store with the phone, I had to have their fulfillment center ship it to me in order to match Amazon's online price. But for $150, it's worth waiting a few days!

    SUCCESS! Just came from best buy with $100 in cash after they price matched the amazon wireless price. They looked it up and at first I thought they weren't going to do it since I did upgrade and the price is for new line but they did it anyway. I didn't mention anything about it being a new line price. Best buy will have my business for a long time.

    My understanding that this was a Best Buy policy to last "through the holidays", so not sure if it will be in place after the 1st of the year. Hope so!

    The online price matching ends by January or sometime in January. After that they'll price match only local competitors. But if the online matching got them a lot more business they may keep it indefinitely. I would check online as they announced how long it would last online.

    As long as you do it within 30 days they will price match. If the amount in difference is less than $250 they will give it back to you in cash.

    That's crazy! I just price matched for the $150. My last day to price match is today. I wonder if they will do it again. That's another $50. I'll try it again and see what happens.

    Walmart.com has the Titanium for $139.99 and the White for $329.99. Not sure why the big difference but BB should match the Titanium price.

    Just went to best buy and after they just price matched the $150 New price for my renewal 2 days ago they just matched it again for the $99. Got back 50. Best buy is definitely doing it right. I hope this helps their bottom line because it means more and better options for the consumer. Thanks again best buy!

    If the local didn't do it try another store if it's not too far. If you don't have that option then call the 1800 customer number. They will usually help you out. Best buy right now is trying to improve their customer experience.

    Guess I will have to try the 1800 number. The second Store I tried would price match, but only for the upgrade price of $199 that Amazon is selling it for.

    On 11/21/12 I bought the Titanium Note 2 for $229.99 price matched Walmart.com. Today I saw. Walmart.com had it for $139.99. Walked in told the guy at the Customer Service desk, he verified it and handed me my $90 plus tax. Great experience all around.
