There was no security sticker anywhere along the spine or top or bottom?
not shrink wrapped?

That sucks man...well at least you got a refund...they could have easily screwed you out of ten bucks.

Consumerist posted a similar story a long time ago with it happening at walmart.


Isn't Skyrim Steamworks? Did they take whatever the code was printed on, cuz if not that's a hilarious fail on the shrink-er.

Been calling every TRU in the area, and virtually all of them don't have PC games period. Murfreesboro had them but got hit hard when the prices dropped... of course. Strangest of all: For giggles, I called the store I walked into yesterday that had no PC games out, and the dude was telling me "all we have are WoW expansions, Starcraft II, stuff like that." ??????? I'm thinking he's not up-to-speed but I'm about to go take a look and tease myself again.


That's almost exactly what the one I called and stopped into told me; when I got there, I couldn't find anything on the shelves, but then I spotted everything in a basket behind the counter.

Shit, how did I miss this?


Mebbe cuz no one brought it up in the Chicago thread until last nite.

Nothing at Fairfax or Alexandria, VA locations. I also stopped by Best Buy to try and price match it and they said they couldn't since it wasn't in stock nearby.

I'm in that area and I can confirm that there's basically nothing there. I picked up MW3 from the Fairlakes TRU and they had a few BF3's, but that was a few days ago.

I tried to price match Diablo 3 and Skyrim at Wal-mart and Target. No go:( I've never been to my local Best Buy. Think I should even try to price match there?

Son of a... I just opened a sealed TRU Skyrim and gave my friend the key. Steam says it's been redeemed already. I start looking and pop the disc out. Fingerprints. Somebody has a shrink-wrap machine.

Hope they will take it back at TRU though I know it's against their policy, I looked on Steam about how to handle this through them and it sounds like a huge pain in the ass.

Tried a PM at Best buy on Diablo and skyrim. The manager said no since neither was in stock. Makes me regret buying skyrim yesterday - could have gotten 6 copies at bb. I maybe i'll do a return then pm @ bb?

score on diablo 3 at best buy 5 minutes before close. all best buys should price match online prices as long as they aren't online only prices and these clearly aren't. I think the confusion is because it is a new policy. im sure a manager could deny it if they wanted though because it seems like best buy managers get a lot of freedom with prices and stuff. the problem is the in stock check. I called two best buys before I went. one checked over the phone and seemed like they asked a manager and then they called tru and they were obviously out of stock so no go. but with the second best buy i just asked if they would price match a tru video game they said yes and that was it. so I went in and it worked. if you can get them to commit on the phone like that it should work because im pretty sure the people that answer the phones are the ones at customer service.

Well there wasn't a basket on the counter, but suddenly there was a basket on the sales floor that wasn't there yesterday, and I am happy to say that Dad will get his SC2 and D3 for the holidays and the sister will get some Sims expansions. :D Gotta thank BB for price-matching the D3 online price; I stood there for the longest time debating whether I'd even try it when I noticed one of my favorite managers... that was my cue!

I thought Target did store ad, hard copy only. Didn't know proof of in store price was sufficient. At least, for me it has never been.

I'd be hassling everyone possible through both TRU and Steam. If nothing else, if it can be proven the guy jacked a Steam key then there's a good chance he could have his game - or, even more juicy, his entire account - revoked.

scored a PM on D3 at Best Buy 10 minutes before closing at Pittsburgh Mills. I told them TRU was having a crazy sale on Diablo 3. I tried showing her the page on my shity old multimedia phone but it wasn't completely loading. But the girl at the register was cool and looked it up and was able to PM it. I had a RZ certificate and was gonna pick up ME3 with GCU coupon anyway so it wouldn't have been a wasted trip even if I got shut down. I didn't try and push my luck and get them to PM Skyrim or SC2 though.

Yeah, same here. It has to be a "hard copy" and it has to be on "sale" for the week.

I printed out Toys r us pages for Diablo 3 and Skyrim. I was told at each place that they don't price match online prices.


For walmart, try to PM without the ad/print out. They will call the store to check the price. You do not need to have the ad on hand to PM, however there must be a TRU store near Walmart otherwise they will not PM.

I thought about trying to PM at Best Buy when I was there today, but considering there's a TRU in the same parking lot I don't think they would've went for it. :lol:

Maybe this is an avenue worth investigating at a different store though.

I tried price matching at my Wal-Mart and they did call the nearest TRU. They told them it was a clearance item, so Wal-Mart refused to price match. It's hit or miss, worth a try. No SkyRim for me. :sad panda face:

Guy told me that picture of price tag would probably suffice, but he also said they've stopped doing that for the most part. Worth a shot if a pic of D3 with the price tag is available, though.

Anybody know how long the TRU prices are going to last? I figure until all the items are sold. Anyway, I'm going back tomorrow and maybe this weekend to keep trying the PMs at BB and Target.

Lord help us, the Slickdeals effect has hit CAG.

Also, what's this print ad people are talking about? I can't find anything about $10 PC games in the current weekly ad on the TRU website.

Do I just say TRU has these for $10 and ask to price match? Do I bring the phone number? I've never price matched anything before, so I'm a bit clueless.

Go through the process outlined here: https://support.stea...=1673-IDGK-4694

It might take a week or two because Steam support is slow, but you shouldn't have any trouble.

edit: Apparently I can't read and it looks like you already found that :P. Hopefully it helps someone else anyway

I would go in with your phone or a printed out copy of the toysrus.com web page with the price on it. That's what I do.
