    Has anyone bought an iPhone 5S off contract from Best Buy?

    they will sell it to you, but their prices are $50 more than the full price versions at the apple store.

    There's a very well run Best Buy near me. They are always busy cause they voluntarily check prices of other stores including Apple and keep their prices low. The Mgr is very motivated to see that his store is number one amongst the other Best Buy locations. Great prices without having to ask, a very well trained staff, it's a pleasure to do business there.

    Read my post again. You missed the part where I explained they already do that. The Mgr himself does. It saves the sales persons time and they sell more that way. The store is only three miles from the Apple store so he knows he's got to be on top of it. I'm impressed at how well it's run. The other Best Buy in town is not even close. They aren't very busy because of it.

    Ok, but not everyone lives where you do. So therefore I was saying how if you go to a Best Buy where they don't, it's an amazing thing to do. I didn't miss it at all.

    As an employee, you can price match anything. You'd be surprised how little people know that. My fellow associates don't just knock off 50$ off the full price but myself and my manager do because we know about it. Cool your jets.

    Yep. Bought an off-contract Verizon Silver 32 GB iPhone 5S on Launch Day (after buying online and reserving for in-store pickup)! Been using it ever since. As a bonus, it appears to be unlocked based on the IMEI number!:D

    Verizon [ LTE capable ] devices are required by the FCC to be unlocked, whether on or off contract :)
