Anywhere to pricematch Borderlands or Dishonored yet? Is there a thread anywhere for this? I remember someone ran one last year and it was very helpful :)


I successfully price matched BJs on Dishonored today at $46.99. Brought a picture on my phone, but they only glanced at it.

I should probably know this, but am oblivious...

When price matching any of these games, can you PM as many times as you like? You would just keep bringing in the ORIGINAL receipt right? Like if I PM'ed Dishonored for $45 and got $15 back, could I PM at $30 if its on sale and get $30 back? Or would they know I already got $15 back at one point and only give me another $15 off?

How could they tell if you used the original receipt?

Each receipt has a bar code at the top and they can trace any other receipts attached to it.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Ahh okay. So you can only get money back of the sale price or competitor's price is lower than what you've already PM'ed it for?

Example: I PM'ed Fry's RE6 anthology for $74.99, so I can't hope to get any more back unless it goes >$74.99 within 60 days correct?

I preordered dishonored and picked it up Tuesday, and became unlocked on Thursday and still received the points. So maybe some luck to those who did like me and became unlocked after the fact. Question, am I supposed to get the current mag when I enroll or will it ship home? A non gaming clerk was standing in when I purchase my subscription.

is there a limit to the amount of games you can price match protection during the 60 day purchase?

For example if you do lots of returns bestbuy will ban you/not allow you to return anymore... that is why they need your license.. do they do the same thing with price match?
does a pricematch after purchase count as a return?

I buy dozens of games every month from bestbuy (and multiples of each game) so i'm sure I can get a lot of money back by pricematching but I'm afraid they will ban me if i do it too often?

Well, I had nothing to worry about--I logged into myrz.com today to find a ton of my pending points now processed and the 1000 points for RE6 credited. I'm sitting pretty now on 3000 points (with ~300 still pending). \\:D/

...I love being able to bank points. :D

If I may ask did you get just a regular version of RE6 or one of the other versions?

How could they tell if you used the original receipt?

Once you pm a game from $60 to $40 bring the 2nd receipt to pm it cheaper. Always bring the last receipt used it makes it easier for the CSR plus will help avoid them making a a mistake & return the game vs pm it.

is there a limit to the amount of games you can price match protection during the 60 day purchase?

For example if you do lots of returns bestbuy will ban you/not allow you to return anymore... that is why they need your license.. do they do the same thing with price match?

They monitor it but I've been pm'ing like crazy for 5+ yrs & haven't had an issue. PM's are tracked but they ARE NOT counted like a return even though the receipt may say return. The real red flags are people who do excessive returns that end in open box items("renters") or complusive impulse buyers who return stuff every other day. Just make sure they "price match" & not return/rebuy.

Any price matching opportunity available for Madden 13, Sleeping Dogs, DarkSiders 2, Nba 2k13, dishonored, Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6?

Someone should make a price matching thread, so it can be easily found, with that being said....not it!

Ha that's what i've been saying... also, not it! :p

On another note, what would happen for price matching if we used a trade in card to purchase the game? Are we not able to price match if we paid for the game via a GC or a trade in card etc?

One would assume that if there were any PM opportunities, a thread would be created (clearly by someone less lazy than you, who has no problem doing the work for themselves). Not everything can be handed to you on a silver platter... :roll:

Oh definitely, but i also think it can come down to having the amount of free time it would take to create and maintain the thread. I definitely don't have the free time... sorry :)

Any PM opportunity will be posted here no doubt. There were tons of them last year during the promo. I think I got BF, Batman, Skyrim and Saints Row for 40.00 plus the gift cards.
