    Wife and I each got a Nexus at Best Buy. They price match both letstalk.com and amazon wireless. Just show them the price or have them look it up on their computer. For those looking to save some $$ and not wait for shipping, it may be worth checking out.

    They price matched the contract price?? Wow. I know they match full retail prices. Might have to go back for a price adjustment if they will do it.

    Yep got my bionic for $199. On their website it says they don't match internet retailers only brick and mortar but I'm gonna try anyway. The OP may have gotten lucky but according to their "official" policy it only applies to actual stores in the area.

    That's odd. I the only store I have ever seen BB match is VZW. And they will match their prices online.

    I couldn't get the $75 off at Let's Talk. The coupon was gone. So they price matched my phone, the secondary line for $225.99 to Letstalk. That's the price that came up on their website. Then for my wife's primary line, they price matched Amazon wireless for $199.99. Couldn't do both for $199.99 since the amazon wireless price was only for primary lines. Total came to $425.98, plus tax. My total with letstalk.com came to $424.98, with no tax, but I canceled since they were on backorder. I also traded in both our OG droid and received $27 each. We weren't planning on doing anything with them anyway.

    The guy that I dealt with said Best Buy mobile, even though they were located in a best Buy store are technically a different store. They have entirely different price match policies than Best Buy. Even a separate management team. He said you have 30 days to price match if you find a better price.

    A guy in line was able to get the letstalk.com deal as well when I told them about it. He left about 3 mins before my friend called me to tell us about the price change on Amazon wireless. We had been expecting to pay $225.99 each for them.

    I was looking at the computer when he was entering in the price match, they had a lot of retailer listed as to who the price match was from. He used Other and typed in Letstalk.com for the $225.99 price match.

    Ok big thanks to the OP. I went back to Best Buy today and showed them the Amazon contract price and they matched it no problems. Got a $50 price adjustment.

    Best Buy will match certain online retailers. Namely Amazon. I did actually get them to match the price of a big screen about 5 years ago. Can't remember the online retailer but it was a $1200 difference.
