Since Microcenter has awesome deals on CPU's, and since the nearest one are states away, I was wondering if my local Best Buy would price match for an i5-3570K ($169.99) or an i7-3770K ($229.99). I was hoping to just print out the webpage and bring it in for them to hopefully price match it. Will it work? Has anyone else tried it before?
I seriously doubt it. Best buy are a bunch of jackasses, at least where I live. You could try calling them and asking. Microcenter is the best thing ever to happen to my city. I got a $400 i5/mobo combo for less than $300 for my latest build there.
They are a loss-leader. They rope you in by actually selling CPUs at a loss, hoping you'll say "*** it, might as well buy all my other components here as well since it's so convenient." And thus they extract a hefty profit.
