Price matched at BB for D3 and SC2 with no issues or overrides. Probably could have gotten more games which I may do later but didn't want to push my luck. Had printouts with me but the girl at CS just verified by seeing if it was on the website only.

Grabbed D3, SC2 and Skyrim from Best Buy (Evansville IN). Printed out all three ToysRus webpages and showed them to the cashier and asked for a price match, no problems at all!

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Just got back from best buy. Picked up skyrim with the price match with Toys r us website on my phone. The manager had to do an override for the pm but he didn't even care. The girl couldn't believe I got it for that price though. So happy hunting friends.


I feel like I saw this happen, lol. What store was this?

Just went to BB to PM for diablo 3 and battlefield 3. I successfully found D3 but I didnt see a BF3. I asked one of the employees if they had any copies in the back that I could price match and sure enough he comes back with a copy... of the premium edition. So I made out with it pretty well, and got the premium edition of bf3 for 10$


Wow what a nice ass steal. Congratz

bob_793+darkjedi - yeah I feel yall's pain. F those stores for not just the denial but the wait times to make up some stuff like that.

Gotta thank jw430 for hooking me up with his last copies.

After my previous denied price match, I went to another TRU (Melrose Park, IL). It had 2 MW3s, an Arkham City, 2 BF3s, and a Revelations. Then I went across the street and PM'd a Diablo 3 and a Skyrim for my bro, no questions asked :D

Was able to PM Skyrim and SC2 at the BB in Elk Grove, CA. I had printouts but the gaming desk guy just went to a computer and confirmed the prices on TRU's site...not sure how he managed Starcraft but whatever. He had to get a manager override because of the huge difference in price but he said he already verified so she just punched in a code. Also grabbed ME3 on PC with the coupon. Paid for those and Bug's Life Blu with the credit I just got from trading in some games. A good trip!

Went to the BB on Rainbow in Vegas, tried to pick up another copy of D3 to give to a friend for a late bday present and a copy of SC2. I pulled up both pages on my phone, and they even pulled it up on their phones but the guy said he couldn't PM D3 because it's too much of a difference (but said he could PM Amazon's $40 or something price lol) but he said yes to SC2. I'm going to try and PM D3 at the original store I bought mine at on Tuesday assuming the prices stay the same and the pages are still up.

I just got Skyrim and Starcraft 2 :D with price match from the Belmar best buy in Lakewood CO with printouts of the webpages. Manager was awesome and it took literally 2 seconds. They still have a lot of the other games just not Diablo 3. I am going back out later to look for Diablo 3 at other stores as they were out at the store because someone was in before me. If anyone wants me to post receipts to help with your talks with managers to showe that other store are price matching this let me know and I will. Also the walmart at first and wadsworth was no go for price matches with a very bad attitude and grumpy managers :cry:. Hope this helps any Colorado CAGS out there and I will post later tonight with other finds and my luck.

Finally got a Skyrim, although it took more than cleavage. All went well until they had to call a second manager over to approve the PM and he said no and that brought my fiance's inner-bitch out. I walked away and let her do her thing, so I missed the whole ordeal (the cleavage mind trick works best when the lady is alone), but from what she told me, it was an ordeal that went all the way to the store manager.

But I got Skyrim for $10, so I'm a happy boy now.

BTW - this was at Walmart.

Went to my local Toys R Us and they told me they didn't even carry PC games. I am wondering if they had already sold out of what they did carry if they ever did. I could try chancing a price match for Skyrim somewhere but my backlog is so big I might just keep waiting for it to drop in price

Went today to my local best Buy and PM'd for 2 copies of Diablo 3, 3 copies of Skyrim and a copy of SC2. I already have D3 and SC2 so I used the link provided to offer everything up in the trade thread for $15 (key) and $20(boxed) and it went so feakin fast. Might go back tomorrow to try and help out some more people, and may actually grab MW3 for myself

Did it require an override? I went to one best and picked up skyrim and diablo 3 just fine, went to another and tried Starcraft diablo and skyrim and the girl said it required a manager and he shot me down. The kid at the first bb was familiar with the deal though and didn't call a manager or anything.

Went to my local TRU and they told me they do not sell any PC games. So, I tried to PM at my local Best Buy. I had Skyrim in my hands, was in the check out line, and the cashier was all ready to give me the PM. When suddenly the guy from the gaming department runs up to the check out line and shouts at the cashier and told her, "DONT GIVE HER THE DEAL." Can they even do that? Ugh.

I tried to argue with him to giving me the PM but in the end he called up TRU and gave me the whole spew on "not in stock/no deal" ordeal. I even called up the other TRU around my area. They do not carry PC games either. :wall:

I first went to TRU tonight, they only had Rage, some Sims games, AC, and probably some other game but it was nothing I was looking for. So went to Best Buy, they of course had a ton of D3 and SC3 games. I picked up 2 copies of each normally priced at $59.99 (D3) and $39.99 (SC2). Went up to the front registers, where I should of probably not bothered going to, guy that normally rings me up was busy with a customer.

The employee had rung it all up, being over 200 dollars of course, so they said I have to ask their manager since it's over so much. Employee went to ask, came back said that they had to call TRU (which I know I didn't see any of those two games left, their video games section was a disaster anyways, although I could of missed them in a different area easily, and didn't ask an employee there if they had any available in the store).

So the employee is on the phone, first asks if the price was right, then asked if they could check in store for the games, which is where I thought yeah if they look and come back and say no, then I'm out of luck. So the first person they talked to didn't answer their question, so they ask for someone in the video game department, which not sure what happened but the best buy employee gave up waiting on the phone, hung up, came back to the register and started overriding the prices for me. So $43.71 ($39.92 before tax) was my total for 2 D3 , 2 SC2 games. Of course the employee says, "that's a really good deal", I said yup, and left.

I went to a far away BB and was able to pm D3 and SC2. I also picked up the last 2 ME3CEs they had in stock, since they were closing in 15 minutes. I had to buy 2 mags, but they are still worth it at $15 each.

I went to my local Best Buy with the page loaded on my Nexus, picked up a copy of Skyrim and Diablo III and asked the guy working in the video games section whether they'd be able to do a price-match. I wasn't expecting that they would do it and I certainly wasn't going to fight anybody over it. The PM policy seems pretty clear: no PM unless there's a store in town that carries the item in question. So if they hadn't gone for it, I'd have just said, "Okay" and walked out.

However everybody there was really cool about it. The first blue shirt I spoke with asked me where the PM was and how much. When I told him it was Toys R Us, he started to pull up the site on his computer and I said, "I should have it right here" and showed him the two product pages on my Nexus. He said they shouldn't have a problem, put it in the computer, called over a manager to authorize the overrides and I walked out with two $60 games $21.78 poorer.

The manager actually asked incredulously about Skyrim being on sale and when the blue shirt said yes, he said he was getting a copy for himself, thanked me for coming in, and grabbed one off the shelf.

It was a very pleasant and painless experience, quite the opposite of what I anticipated. I may try price-matching more often after this.

EDIT: I didn't even bother checking the stock at my one local TRU; the store rarely has much of anything in the way of PC games, hardly ever has clearance or sale items in-store, and it's much farther from my house than this Best Buy location. I figured if I couldn't get a PM, then I'd take the trouble to drive over to the TRU and find out they didn't have anything I was looking for.

Has anyone gotten a copy of Skyrim with a 25 character cd key? They are supposed to come with a 15 character long key. Apparently some of the printed retail copies had key issues.

http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=2846395

I need to call monday, just a head up in case someone else has this issue.

Anyways, I was able to PM a few games at my local BBY after getting denied at 4 others as online it shows OOS, they all pointed that out. Three wanted to call and one just wouldn't budge on the issue. Weird as when I went to one of them before their policy was to ONLY check websites and printed ads and to not call at all as it holds up the line. I wish I ran into that manager/cashier that I had that other time

D3, Skyrim and MW3. They would only let me get one copy. Would have gotten two of each for a friend. Luckily a few cags were willing to sell me a few keys for a modest profit for my friend.

I might try this again, but I'd have to go fairly far to get to another BBY. So probably not.
