and I am going to try it again this year. Amazing what prices they will match when it comes to getting a sale. This year I need two 42 LCD televisions, they want 699 whereas I can get them from a certain major online retailer wants 599 and others 589 with no tax or shipping costs.
Will be curious what price they will go down to.
I have to disagree with your assessment of HHGregg's willingness to price match.
A local department store chain had a pedestal for LG washers/dryers on sale. I called HHGregg ahead of time to ensure that they could match the price, and the answer was "we sure can."
After a half hour or so of having the sales associate verify the deal on the competitor's website and asking his manager for authorization, he finally came back that they could not match the price. Apparently, the competitor's price was "below cost." Despite HHGregg's 110% price guarantee, they could not even match a competitor's price by 80%.
BestBuy had absolutely no qualms matching the department store's price, and they actually had the pedestals ready to go at the store. HHGregg would have had to order them from their warehouse, taking additional time.
I cannot honestly imagine myself ever again walking into HHGregg.
