Thanks to freezedried at FatWallet.com Circuit City has 1600 Live points for $17.99 instore only. Usually runs $29. If they try and charge higher than that show them a copy of the web page. Some stores pricing database has not been updated.

Excellent! Thanks for the heads up! I just wish I had known about this 4 days ago when I plunked down $12.75 for 1000 points for Marble Blast Ultra.

FYI: Prices online do not always match prices in store.

I fought and fought with a store manager over this about a month ago. I saw something on their website that was $100 cheaper than in store. When I showed them the print out they said they couldn't change the price. I then asked them if they could price match it. He said no, but could to a competitor. In other words, they can't match their own price. Dumb asses.

Wow that is just plain stupid. Can't even match their own online prices. Back to the post, that sounds like a good deal, hope it holds up.

That's strange....

When i got my new TV it was 100 dollars cheaper online than it was in-store. I printed out the circuitcity.com page displaying the price, showed it when I went to buy the tv in-store, and gave me 110% difference back, no questions asked.

They charged me $19.99 at first and I said the website said it was $17.99 the ladie looked it up online and changed it to $17.99. I also went to Toys R Us and they weren't on sale but were only $20.

if you do the math you arent getting any better deal in store then buying online.
100 points = $1.25 each
1000 points =$12.50 10x1.25
2000 points =$25.00 20x1.25

in the end buy in the market place,
1600 ms points = $20 16x1.25 so with tax and all and gas you save buying from the marketplace and dont even go to best buy they want $25 for 1600 which you could get 2000 points for 25 on xbox live.

Next time make the purchase online, then choose in-store pickup in the checkout menu.
It's as easy as walking into the store & picking it up. You paid for it online so your local store has no choice but to give it to you at the discounted price.

... and before you make any online purchase, check to see if there's discount coupons available also (try couponcabin.com).
