    So I paid $500 for my mini 4 I see Best Buy has it for sale in store for $400. It's available at the Best Buy right next to my house the exact one I purchased.

    Will Apple price match it?

    Why not just buy it at Best Buy? You can also purchase Apple Care directly through Best Buy as well.

    You better check with Apple to make sure they price match? I'm a little surprised myself.

    Sometimes they will do exactly 10% even if the actual matched price would be higher. I called to get a price match for a Retina iMac when Best Buy had a $200 off sale this Summer. The discount from Apple ended up at -$230 (10% off Apple's store price rather than a match of BB). Plus I saved another $23 because the sales tax rate was lower, and it was a 10 minute drive vs. 45 minutes to the Best Buy that had one in stock.

    I typically use B&H since they have fairly low prices. What I was told in store is they will match a brick and mortar store, but only up to 10%.
