Even if the specs are slightly different, come in prepared with an approximate price impact of any differences there are and they should work to match the price. Oh and if they show you "Cost" in the computer... keep in mind that there is a mark up when the FS warehouse sends the item to the retail stores so even if it sells at the apparent 'Cost' they are still making money.
My theory on bargaining is that if by the time I leave, they are still glad I came in, then I havent negotiated hard enough.
