Price discrepancies between Best Buy's online site and in-store sites continue

Those looking to score the lowest prices on items at Best Buy brick and mortar (B&M) stores apparently are still having problems thanks to the company's internal website.

Customers who shop Best Buy's website often come across deals only to find that the items are sold out or on backorder. The site then often directs customers to proceed to the local store to purchase the item (usually denying customers the option to buy online with in-store pickup).

At first glance, this doesn't seem like such a bad idea: 1) the customer can receive the same price at the store and 2) the customer doesn't have to wait for shipping or pay shipping charges by picking up the item from a local Best Buy store. The problem, however, comes from the fact that Best Buy continues to operate an internal website at its B&M stores that shows higher pricing than the "official" Best Buy website....
