PSA: Edge 305 + heart rate for $75 at Best Buy (Stock may vary)

I don't know if this has been posted before but I went to my local Best Buy today because they supposedly had a nice high end video card on clearance. I didn't find the video card but I did find the Edge 305 + heart rate cycling computer on clearance for $75. They only had 1 in stock which makes me think that not every store will have them. The timing works out great for me since I just got my new bike and was looking for a computer for it. I'm about to buy the cadence sensor on Amazon to complete the setup.

Wow, I'll have to check out BB tomorrow to see if I can't score one as well. That's a great price. Maybe I'll even get lucky and find one with the cadence sensor!

Thanks for the heads up!

It's too bad it's at Best Buy. After 3 negative experiences with them (in 3 trips to the store) I won't set foot in there again...

Best buy has some of the most horrible customer service ever. I've been calling around trying to find an Edge 305 and if I'm lucky if I even get someone on the phone after waiting 10+ minutes. Then the person who answers the phone opens a web browser, goes to bestbuy.com, doesn't see the edge 305 listed so they tell me they don't have it. Then I ask them to do a physical check of their store at which point they transfer me around to different departments with no one answering the phone. Out of the 10-15 best buys I've called so far I was only able to get 3 to do an actual physical check to see if they have the edge 305. One store had it, but for $169.99.

They have price match i have heard...I got it for $76 last weekend. It is freakin awesome! I never saw it there before and it isn't online, but the girl I asked actually knew what I was talking about, and went digging and found one. I was pleasantly surprised.

I really didn't do anything. It was already priced at $75.99 and it came up in the system that way too. Maybe it takes longer for some stores to update their prices. I'll check my local best buy again this weekend to see if they are the same price.

Best not to call. If an employee sees that they have it and it has been massively discounted, they may tell you it is not in stock and then buy it themselves.
