It turns out they won't price match Amazon, or any of the other vendors coming up on a lowest price search, even if they have retail locations. The customer service told me they have a list of 3 pages, and it had to be one of the "competitors" from that list. So how can I do this without taking blind shots in the dark? Anyone have the list of acceptable competitors they match?
I really need a replacement item, and want to avoid shipping by buying somewhere local in-store, but BB&B (and all the others) are $10 more than the online options.
Any advice on how to pull off some price matching?
I have had BB&B price match pretty much any local store, including their coupons. Heck, they once let me use a 40% off coupon from World Market on a Liz Clairborne blanket because I showed them that World Market carried blankets, even though they didn't carry that brand of blanket at all. Same with knives and coffee makers. They're pretty darned accommodating if you have done your research in advance and have supporting documentation, be that from a sale paper, website printout, competitors coupon, or your phone with a web page pulled up on it.

find a national B&M store in your area that sells similar items and they will price match. I don't see what the big mystery in this is.
