You can still type 840 Pro into the search and see it at that price. However it's sold out online and I couldn't find a store within 100 miles that had it here...

Yes it will show sold out online on the Best Buy site.. Staples did not question when I called and said they were authorized to sell it at $139.. the shipped price was to my house and not the store. Shipping was free, just had to pay tax. Just call and work it.

Hmm could be cached... I didn't refresh the page yet but I still see this:



I didn't order one but it sounds like on SD some people were able to call staples 1-800 number and get them to price match.

Thanks OP. They price matched over the phone. Call the number and be armed with item numbers from both companies. Took 10 minutes.

Excellent. Live chat wouldnt match but phone support was very easy.

Thanks much OP. Great deal. Lowest price ever at amazon: $199.99

Didnt work with me. Was on hold too long and had to go back to work so I didnt bother to argue.
Lady gave some BS excuse that it was not a best buy item but a third party product from buy.com which was a totally different sku..

Got one. This was perfect timing as I wanted a replacement for my 128gb 840 pro.
Can't beat it at that price.

WTF. They won't price match bb if it's out of stock?
If you call local store, make sure you tell them BB is price matching in-store as well.
If they don't check in-store stock, they'll price match you.

The girl I talked to didn't even check ANY of the stock. She saw the price tag on BB's website and that was it.

I'm gonna have to go there more often.

I would have to go in store. Tell them BB has it in store, hope they don't check it and then get the match...
Not sure if I want to mess with that. haha

I've got 2 staples near me. 1 is right next to the Best Buy. So they would just tell me to go there and get it.

You can call and ask to pricematch over the phone.
Some will tell you that you must come in to price match.

I price matched over the phone, but had to go to the store to place the order.
The one I just went to has a BB directly next to it, she asked me why I didn't just go to BB and I said "I prefer Staples."

At which point you ask for her manager, and say "your employee was recommending I shop at Best Buy instead". :D

Called in. Rep said they're denying price match requests now, because BB is showing OOS both online and in-store.

Did they specifically say "We were told to deny price match" or did they just deny you because BB is out of stock?

If the first one, then it means Staples has gotten wise to what's happening and is notifying their stores.
If the second one, it's a normal response and just means the person you talked to was smart enough to check BB's stock.

The price match is, by all accounts, invalid. If you successfully get a price match, it's in error, and it means the rep you're talking to has made a mistake.

First thing he checked was whether or not there were any existing price match notices, saying that if there were he wouldn't need to visit BB's site to verify anything. The notes apparently referenced BB being out of stock both on and offline, hence the price match deny.

Might have luck in-store, but I doubt it.
