    Hello everyone,

    I am thinking about purchasing a new rMBP 13" w/ 256GB SSD. Best Buy has this for 1499.99. I'm a student so I can get it for 1399 from apple, but I want to make use of the best buy movers coupon (i'll be moving from my dorm to an apartment)

    Will Best Buy match the apple price and then give me 10% off as well? that will get me the computer for 1260, which is a lot more stomachable than 1.5k!

    Have Best Buy price match B&H or whoever has the lowest price; then use the mover coupon.

    Unfortunately that won't fly. Their policy is either a pricematch OR coupons.

    I tried price matching to B&H last week and also had a movers coupon and educational coupon... No problems using the movers + edu, but not the combination with the pricematch.

    Also, the rMBP 13's are on sale at Best Buy again, so the pricematch is moot (unless the 6 months of Parallels Access from B&H is important to you):

    8/128 for 1234
    8/256 1424

    Hmmm . . .

    I've been able to combine price match, edu coupon, and movers - it depends on the person you talk to. I wound up getting a 15" base 2.2 for $1530 plus tax.

    Worth a shot.
