    What does this one mean?  
    So if someone buy a TV, let's say a week before Black Friday, for $1,000 and then that same TV model is on sale on Black Friday for $500, he can't get a price match?  
    I thought we can get a price match within 30 days if there's any sale cheaper than the price we paid.

    I would do a virtual return (where a product that is not present is returned and then repurchased with benefits like rebate offers, newer lower price, and/or extension of warranty period)  
     
    Yeah basically the Low Price Guarantee excludes special one-day sales.i am a worm.

    Hmmm I asked 2 Frys employees at the returns and exchanges department about this and they both said yes, I can do the price match thing on Black Friday.

    All you have to do is make the purchase IN FULL with a VISA or Mastercard credit card, not debit card and if the store won't reimburse the difference to you, just place a claim with VISA or Mastercard (whichever card you used) and they themselves will send you a check for this difference. It is one of the little known benefits that VISA and Mastercard offer their cardholders for free. Call your bank and ask them!
