Your attitude was completely different. Also, the circumstance was different. At the time b&h had the price change on their site, on ur case it was onlynthe best buy site that had the sale. For the most part, it isn't what u say it's how u say it.

I am not going into any discussion about that again, except saying that I love my attitude.

Ended up getting a return phone call from a supervisor and received a $75 rebate back to my credit card that I should see within 3 days. Not the full $150, but better than I expected to come out. Glad my efforts all morning weren't for nothing!

Are these one-day specials typical for B&H or has everyone come to the conclusion that this was an accident? Seems odd that it was so many cameras but I'm sure we'll never know.

Good to see that they came through for you. The bestbuy thing appears to have been a fluke, so the fact that B&H reacted at all speaks to how strongly they pay attention to the market.

Did any members actually purchase a 7D for the sale price? I made an attempt to order the item but could not log into my Best Buy account Sunday evening and apparently the item was not available for that price the following morning. After contacting Premier Silver Member customer service, they agreed to give me the sale price but at he last minute said I would have to pick it up at a Hawaii store since they had no more inventory in California and might not every have it back in-stock locally. Well today, on their web site it appears you can order that 7D even though it is on back-order and they even give you a pick up date. I called to place my order but they refuse to honor the sale price from last week.

Yes i have read some accounts that people caught it in time for a 7d as well as a 5dii

I really hope members who actually bought these items chime in. BB is claimimg that they never advertised or sold at that price eventhough when I first called, they had confirm that infact they had. Im tired of retailers advertising and never really having the products on hand. They could of at least noted that "quanities are limeted" or "only offered at selected stores".

I'm considering moving up the chain in my complaint and its not even just because I missed out on a great deal due too there website ordering issuses. I have a claim/case number from an online sales floor manager and I'm planing on calling corporate to state my issue. I know its just a waste of time but we will see what happens.

I Bought the 7D kit from this sale and it was delivered 4 days later. I dont understand the moaning and complaining though of folks that missed it and can't get the company to honor the sale price or price match. You snooze you lose.

Ya, I believe it was just a short sale. And on top of it, because BB had this 6hr sale other retailers (ie B&H) had to change their pricing and listen to all the whiners. The reason why in store BB employees say that they never had it at that price is because in store they didnt! Online typically has sales and prices that differ from in store. I picked up a p&s a few years ago that was $70 cheaper on their website, and wanted to get it in store and had to tell them to visit their own website to get it at that price!

Well when a customer makes the attemp to order and the retailers website fails to process the order...yes I'm going to complain!

Yea, but how does the retailer know that that's even true? Why didn't the person just call in?

If my car broke down and I missed a big sale at Sears and I came in two days later and said. "well, I tried to get here but my car wouldn't start. Can you give me the sale price"? I would expect to hear a NO. I might still try and get the sale price but I wouldn't expect it.

What it comes down too is that they agreed to sell it at the sale price on the first call (monday),but upon the process of placing the order over the phone, they just happened to run out. They said it would no longer be available. One week later, website accepts orders with a one to two week delivey to store option. Now i call to place my order,no sale price when on tha past (silver premier member) would be honored that price.

So no, my car did not break down...BB did! And yes I also would like to get the sale price just like you would try.

I purchased a 5DII from J&R that day. They're on back order, so I'm still waiting for mine to ship. But they were able to price match bestbuy, hence saving on 9.75% CA taxes.
