I am going to buy a home theater in a box. Will best buy match amazon's price (amazon has free shipping)?

Call the store and ask?

Some but not all stores match internet pricing. I worked at Micro Center part time a few years back and they wouldn't match internet pricing. They might now, but I doubt it. Best Buy may or may not be different, just call the store to know for sure.

As KC stated, I highly doubt they will internet price match. But it is worth a try..

Which HTIB are you looking at?

Sony HT 7100. It got good marks in consumer reports. We were going to get the onkyo package but the speakers are too big and no dvd player...all items we would have to buy. We just want some good sound...don't need to blow the windows off the house or anything.

They most likely will not match an online price. If they don't, why don't you order it from Amazon? As long as it actually is being sold by them and not one of their partner stores, you'll get free shipping and no tax in addition to the cheaper price. I buy things from Amazon all the time, they are great to deal with.

I did call best buy and the guy that answered said they would. I have his name, so they'd better stick to it or they will lose that sale. Since I get my tv tomorrow (also purchased from bb) so I would like to have the HTIB tomorrow. I bought the tv from them too, so I guess I can use that as leverage.

If you are not going to get the Onkyo, then look at/listen to the Philips HTIB before you buy that Sony.

The man above is correct.

Amazon has done me well over the years... just REread the abover
and order from Amazon only... their partner stores can be
a hassle sometimes.... so Amazon only.
Free shipping and no taxes !

So you have to wait a few days.... so what !

ps - i like Sony stuff... i also like Panasonic... but to me...
Panasonic is just a notch down from Sony on the Panasonic
products i've purchased over the years.

Very Curious if they honored the price...after all, they where to match thier Own internet price, but when you went to the store and looked it up on the "store" internet site it was not as cheep as people saw at home...;)
