I wonder if Best Buy will let me price match my iPad Air... I got it Nov 1st but I have a 45 day return window being that I'm "Elite Plus" status.

They don't price match items on sale from Thanksgiving Day through the Monday after Thanksgiving. You could always repurchase at the lower price and take the original one back.

I think I might just do this myself. Having Elite Plus has a few small benefits. With the savings I may also swap up to a LTE version. I did not think I would miss it originally.

On a side note, has anyone ever returned a product at Best Buy and used Reward Zone gift cards to purchase? I was curious if those get refunded as well. I would assume they would.

I totally read that wrong. I must be too tired. I thought that said retina and the $299 price I thought was the $399-$100=$299.

The Reward Zone certificates/points are refunded but they usually take 5 business days to show up in your account so you would not be able to use the right away.

I hate Black Friday sales. 95% of them just end up on Craigslist.
$299 for a retina mini is a fantastic deal. Probably what it should be in the first place lol.
Pretty sure they are not taking $100 off the Mini-R. If they were, it would say so.

I think they let me return and rebuy my Mac Mini last year... hopefully they'll have LTE models in stock by then.
