just got back from Best Buy and after some talking they cheerfully price matched... sort of

I'm glad I had printouts off the Best Buy website tho... they didn't know that corporate extended the returns to 60 days.

but after a very short conversation they had me return my launch day touchpad then they sold it back to me for $149

I could honestly care less how it got done, but it got done.

more interesting to me was hearing that employees had lined up to buy them as soon as they went back on the shelves... I had a chat with one employee who quietly told me to check back next week and all the accessories should be on sale
