Best Buy making holiday price match policy permanent

Posted February 18, 2013

Best Buy is making the holiday price match policy from 2012 a permanent policy as of March 3rd. But, it is also changing the return policy.

Starting March 3, Best Buy will match prices at all local retailers and 19 major online competitors. The struggling chain hopes to end "show-rooming" – customers checking something out in a store, then buying it online for less.

In addition to the new price match policy, Best Buy is changing the return policy period. Customers currently have 30 days to return eligible purchases, but as of March 3, they will only have 15 days.

A list of online stores included in the price match policy can be found at Consumerist.com.

The current price-match policy can be found on the Best Buy website.

    Wow, the list of online stores pretty much is the list of online stores I frequent the most, so this could be interesting.
