A source told the WSJ also that Best Buy will offer free home delivery of products that are out of stock in stores. These measures are aimed to increase the amount of shoppers that leave with a purchase. Right now 40% of Best Buy walk-ins actually buy something. Best Buy is though supposedly not concerned about "showrooming." Showrooming is the common practice of customers to evaluate products in-stores and then find deals on the internet and buy online.
Best Buy is still working on the details of the Best Buy Online Price Matching program. It might exclude some products. I think one of the problems will be that online prices fluctuate extremely. What is when Amazon is having a hot Gold Box Deal of the Day? Will Best Buy match that price? I assume also that Black Friday deals will be excluded from price matching as well. We will have to wait until the official announcement to find out.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
