Best Buy matching new and used prices?

Wouldn’t that be crazy? Cheap Ass Gamer put up a post today featuring a picture of a sign at a West Jordan, Utah Best Buy. The sign seems to point to price matching of both new and used prices of local competitors, calling out Gamestop and Game Crazy. Crazy!

Says the sign:

Why buy used when you can buy new?

Best Buy now price matches NEW video games at USED prices from Gamestop or Game Crazy.

As Cheapy D reminds, this deal is probably only available in select markets and the promotion likely has restrictions. But still — wow. If this were a nationally rolled-out effort, Gamestop would have to step it up. Granted, for new games, Gamestop’s used prices aren’t that discounted.

We’re trying to contact someone at Best Buy now. Stay tuned.
