I work at Best Buy down here in St. Louis and as you all probably know, they sell guitars, amps, and effects now. I am going to buy a MXR Carbon Copy and a Korg Pitchblack Tuner and I have an employee discount of |whatever we buy it for + 5% of that cost|. Now heres the dilemma. I do not want to buy guitar stuff at Best Buy for obvious reasons. Now I am not saying that guitar center is more knowledgeable (because most GCs suck) but it would make more sense to buy them from a specialty store. Also, if I were to buy these pedals from Best Buy, I would need to order them online because no stores in our district carry them. Here is my question, would Guitar Center honor a price match to my employee discount seeing as they would not be gaining anything if I bought it at Best Buy but would gain 5% if I bought it from GC?

I get the tuner for $58.80 (originally $89.99) and the MXR for $103.99 (originally $149.99).

if its exactly the same thing and you know what you want then why does it matter where you get it?

I would have to wait until the end February for it to be shipped to my house (its on back-order at Best Buy right now). It would be easier if I could just get it today

It has to be an advertised price.


Yeah. That's usually the policy.

And if it's the exact same brand and model, I don't see the problem with getting it from Best Buy, especially if it's cheaper.
