Gift purchases can be returned or exchanged-with no exclusions -- from November 13, 2011 through January 4, 2012. For the holiday season, Best Buy also has removed its restocking fee entirely, including no fees on special orders.
     
  • Price Matching: Best Buy customers will enjoy unbeatable prices on hot consumer electronics - guaranteed - this holiday season.  Best Buy will match its retail store competitors on any identical available product for sale between November 13, 2011 through December 24, 2011 (November 24 Thanksgiving Day through November 28 Cyber Monday excluded).  Best Buy customers who make a purchase during those dates also will have the peace of mind that, should Best Buy or a local retail store competitor reduce the price before January 24, 2012, Best Buy will match the new lower price - just let us know.
