Daily Edition $359 at Best Buy, free shipping

The discounts are starting already. I just checked Best Buy and was surprised to see that the Daily Edition is already being discounted. For me, I have to pay sales tax if I buy from Sony. The net cost to me on this is $389.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....egories&ks=960

I just noticed that this has already been posted in the Deals forum. Sorry for the repeat post.

It's interesting that J&R has it for $399, free shipping an no sales tax and allows you to check out through Amazon. Check this link:

http://www.jr.com/sony/pe/SON_PRS900BCKIT/#

and notice the button where you can check out though Amazon. Hmmm.

I'm thinking the seller on Amazon trying to get $699 is a jerk who should be banned.

Charger and protective case included?

Those discounted deals do include the protective case and the charger.

They are a great deal. Buy it. Its well worth it.

How did you get Sony to refund the difference? I would definitely like to get that 40 back myself.

Well I called the customer support to cancel my order, and when the agent asked my reason, I mentioned the price difference at best buy. She said she can match it, looked up bb's page to verify price, and proceeded to credit back the difference.

I'm not sure if they can do this if you've already received your prs900, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Thanks for that information. I just emailed Sony at that address with the Best Buy link. I already received my PRS 900. Its worth the shot for a possible $ 40 refund.

Has anyone actually ordered one from Best Buy? I'm almost going to have to go through there in order to use our Best Buy card but also to get the reward points (ok, it is only about $7, but hey!) and want to know what sort of shipping schedule they are on? Is it the same as ordering from Sony or slower?

I checked the shipping times. Using the Express option, yesterday the expected arrival date was 1/8-1/18. Today it is 1/9-1/19. I wouldn't go whipping out the credit card just yet.

(There is also the matter of service plans. Who would you rather deal with when things go horribly wrong? Best Buy or Sony?)

Also, don't forget that if you have any Best Buy gift cards received during XMAS (I had one for $100) PLUS take into account the discount of $40.00 PLUS the fact that Best Buy gives you 45 days to use it before returning the PRS-900 if I don't like it (SonyStyle stores charge a 15% restocking fee) THIS is a no brainer! My total cost (including expedited 1 day UPS shipping) is $305.00.

NO BRAINER

I can't wait

I stopped by the Sony Style store in Las Vegas this afternoon. They had a demo in stock but no sales units. The Reader specialist was really bummed they don't have a delivery date since CES starts in Vegas next week.

When I mentioned the Best Buy price she immediately told me they would price match if the competitor has the item in stock. I told her that the Sony Style Web site was already price matching. They would not sell me a unit in advance of delivery. I wonder how many sales Sony has already lost.

BTW, my ex is a librarian and she sent me an email asking what I thought about the Kindle. I told her that Kindle is the most anti-library reader in production.

Grandma, in a sign of price deterioration, I just checked Amazon and another third party seller is now offering the 900 for a mere $599.

Hurry folks. Rush to get it before its gone!!!!!!

Sony Refused Price Match for me

I just called Sony style and they refused to price match for me claiming that since it is 'on sale' at Best Buy and they only price match regular price items. Seems pretty lame to me. Guess, I'll just get it from Best Buy.
