Best Buy is dedicated to always offering the best value to our customers. We will match the price, at the time of purchase, on a Low Price Guarantee product if you find the same item at a lower price at a Designated Major Online Retailer or at a local retail competitor's store.

Here's how:
  • If you find a qualifying lower price online, call 1-888-BEST BUY and direct a customer service agent to the web site with the lower price, or when visiting a Best Buy store, one of our employees will assist you.

Why?
Why don't we show the price?

We wish we could. We set our prices independently, and sometimes our prices are so low that the manufacturer does not allow us to show them to you until you take a couple more steps. We realize that this is an inconvenience for our customers, and we regularly provide this feedback to manufacturers. We welcome your comments and suggestions on our forum.

To see the price:
Add the item to your cart, then click Checkout. Don't worry, you can remove the item from your cart at any time, if you decide not to buy it.

Free Shipping on Orders $35 and Up

Minimum purchase of $35 on eligible products required. Excludes select Best Buy Marketplace items, digital items, scheduled delivery items and items displaying "In Store Only" message.See full details
