    Why this strategy of price matching will fail

    So sorry to burst your bubble, but this "strategy" won't work. More likely it will make people even more mad at Best Buy. It's not a good shopping experience already, with college kids working there that have NO idea what they are selling (reading from the box, as you ask questions). Getting the price match will probably mean going to customer service and standing in long lines, and even then you might not get a deal. People are tired of wasting time in a Best Buy store. Sometimes you need to touch and feel a product, but Best Buy does not know yet of any way to actually get someone to purchase right there, and right then. If anything, seeing that a Amazon Marketplace vendor has something at a cheaper rate, will make people realize how much Best Buy is overpricing their goods, and will not come back. This is how the consumer thinks, and acts.
