Default Going to best buy to try and price match some headphones but have a problem

So I'm planning on picking up sone Sony xb-500 headphones tomorrow which go for 79.99 at best buy, but online I can get them for like 50ish. I would just order online but the problem with that is I'd have to get them shipped and doubt I'd get them in time for Christmas. I read best buys price match policy and says if you are going to make a purchase in the store you have to have another price comparison of a store that's not just online, and the item has to be in stock. Well I've been looking around and I'm not having goodluck because I found out walmart and meijer have them but of course they are both out of stock. Just seeing if anyone has personal experience and knows either a way to get around this policy or if some other retail store has them, (I'm in Michigan). Thanks.

Id just go in there and tell them that walmart has them cheaper than them and see what they say. Some sales reps don't care, some do, its a 50/50 chance that they'll reduce the price to make the sale. Id also call walmart to see when they'll have them in stock again, im sure they'll get more product before christmas and if you get shot down then you can try again when they have them in stock.

Best Buy sales people aren't on commission. As a part of the price match, they will require both the ad and will call the other store to verify that they have them in stock.

Considering how busy the holiday times are, any associate will likely send you up to customer service for the price match, at which point they will want to know the pertinent information about it and will call Walmart and/or Meijer to find out if they have them in stock. Now if you're lucky, they'll get tired of waiting to get through to those stores, and if you're nice they might do it.

But keep this in mind. People try this at retail stores all the time. Employees know that customers don't just come in and want a price match for no reason, that means that either the store is out of stock of them, or really far away (and in most cases the "local market"comes in to play, for example when I worked on the West Coast of FL, we would NOT price match things from the Miami area, which in some cases were cheaper. We also didn't price match competitors that were not anywhere nearby us (ie if there was no Meijer within 100miles, we wouldn't price match their in store stuff).

Anyways, you might get lucky. But next time remember to shop earlier.
