    Why does best buy charge $50 over what Apple, Att, etc. charge for a phone out of contract?

    I was hoping to take advantage of the 12 month 0% interest

    im on the same boat, they will price match once the device is recieved and you call them.

    Thanks, I did reserve one, but will they price match when I pick it up or do I then have to call CS?

    when I asked why they charge more, I was told so they can make money...they only what to sell the contract phones and not full price..

    They make $100 per 2year contract and $0 if they resell only iPhones without contract.

    They won't be making any money on AT&T phones this year.

    Just don't buy them there. I'm not seeing the problem. The sooner Best Buy goes out of business, the better.

    Actually no need to purchase from BB, Apple has 12 months 0% until 9/30 using the Barclay card...done!

    When I called they said they would price match as long as you show/bring in competitive pricing from Apple among others when paying/ picking up.

    I don't get this kinda of sentiment. Sure you may not like BBY and not shop there, but things won't get "better" in terms of competition if a large competitor like BBY goes out of business. You think Amazon will discount things forever when there is no competition.

    They're not good for competition if they're selling it higher than everyone else.

    They don't price-match contract phones. If you're buying it off-contract, they will.
