Sweet!!

I went and looked at the Best Buy website, and they have a 30 day price guarantee:

Service/Order Type Price Guarantee Policy

In-Store Pickup If you purchase an item online or at a store kiosk using in-store pickup, and if the item is offered at a lower price online and/or in the store when you pick it up, you will automatically pay the lower price.

Pre-Orders and Backorders If the price of an item drops at the time of shipment, you will automatically pay the lower price.

Delivered items If the price of a delivered item drops at any time before your scheduled delivery date, we will refund 100% of the difference. To receive the lower price, you must call 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289).

So I called and asked for the $30 rebate and they gave it to me. So if you have pre-ordered, go ahead and call the 888 number and you should also get the difference. I know Best Buy is generally evil, but they did ok by me today.

Their rep tried to tell me that they don't price match on items that qualify for free shipping (which is a policy not stated on their website). Her supervisor sure sang a different tune when I asked to speak with him. I know it goes w/o saying, but these people are beyond shady. I feel a little dirty.

Absolutely amazing. Just called BB and got $30 refunded from my pre-order which shipped last week. $9.99 for a limited edition Sly and the Family Stone Box Set. Possibly the deal of the year. Thanks for the heads-up on the price reduction [mistake...]. :tup

Perhaps all this activity will flag the higher ups and this will get corrected by Monday, so if you are at all interested, you probably should jump now. But definitely thanks for the heads up.

They're going absolutely apefuckingshit over at the S. Hoffman forums about this right now. Just placed my order for 3 (one to keep, and two to give to deserving friends). No eBay for me, thanks!

Wonder if this includes the BB exclusive bonus DVD too? The price is insane, right next to the Concord sale and the final day "$1 on everything" in the store at Tower last year.

The party is over. Sold out now.

May have contributed to it by posting about this at a soul/funk music message board.

Perhaps it was a disgruntled ex-employee who set the price in motion for the weekend, as a final parting shot against their former employee?

Boy is that dumb. Why wouldn't they put them as bonus cuts on 'Stand'? Guess I'll need to keep my 'Essential' set.

I know, they're only three of their biggest hits.
