FWIW, when I did it, one store looked up the price when I bought Diablo. The other one made me use my phone to buy Starcraft. With Best Buy these kind of deals are always YMMV based on whoever's helping you/the manager on duty.

I just went to a BB and got them to price match D3. The employee said he couldn't allow a price match with that kind of difference, but the manager said he'd allow it if Toys R' Us had it in stock (which they did).

Not sure how you guys are getting so lucky, I got shut down at BB Target and Walmart. All 3 called the store to verify stock. Was really hoping to get SC2 and D3 at that price.

At my BB, they did both. They looked at the print out and then they checked the TRU website. At the end, the manager also had to override the PM.

I am glad that my local BB let me PM TRU's pricing on those games. Just got SC2 x2 for my friend and I.

Here's the link to SC2 on TRU website if anyone needs it

Reward zone points, store credit via trade-ins and with this sale, most people's TRUs have already been picked apart for any worthwhile game.

Thanks for the tip you guys much <3. My Toys R Us was mostly out of PC games (Batman AC, Assassins Creed, and a few casual games) but our Best Buy was willing to price match Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. :bouncy:

Picked up StarCraft 2 from TRU when this first went live. Later tried to PM Skyrim at BB with no luck. Figured I'd swing back in today and try. I walked up to the register with it, figuring it wouldn't work, as soon as I said I wanted to pricematch it, the guy said, 9.99, Toys'R'Us, right? I was kind of shocked, but he seemed stoked to do it, waited for the manager override. She came over and looked apprehensive about it, and he assured her it was a legit TRU pricematch. No hassle, was awesome.

Went today, they didn't have much at all. Couple of crappy Sims games and about 20 copies of WoW Cataclysm. That will probably drop to $5 at Best Buy soon. No big deal. Went next door to Best Buy and PM'd Diablo III and Starcraft 2. I also met a possible CAG today in TRU. He suggested PMing it at Best Buy and I did, and it worked without a hitch. Paid nothing for it since I had credit. I owe a big thanks to him. Best Buy didn't even call TRU to see if they had copies so I'm glad for that too.

Couldn't find Skyrim. Also dissapointed that they didn't have Guild Wars in TRU. But even if they did, it's still new and so they probably wouldn't have it for $10 like how they have Pandaria for $40.

That's the first time I've heard of them calling and having it in-stock. Tell me you rushed over to that TRU right after and picked up copies from there too lol



So I have the worst luck with the price match, it seems, since almost everyone is getting it at BB.

:(

I feel for y'all. Gonna be persistant and try another BB tomorrow, heard from another CAG in my area that this BB price-matches. Fingas crossed

No, the employees at his Best Buy cleaned out the PC game shelves and moved them all to the back room.

So in Summary:

To the guy who found the TRU and posted it here letting others CAGs know: You're Awesome!

To the guy who suggested the Price Match idea with Walmart and Best Buy when some CAGs couldn't find PC games at their local TRU: You're Awesome too!

To the guy(s) who horded (bought multiple) copies of the Diablo 3, SC2 and etc to profit or sell to CAGs (or ebay, Amazon, and etc) under the guise of "helping." Fuck you! You're a piece of SHIT.

BTW: got my copy of Diablo 3 from my local Best Buy, no issues with Price Matching but I think I was early before hoarders started going to BB/Walmart to snag every copy of Diablo 3, SC2, BF3, and Skyrim.

Got my copy of Diablo 3 :D today from another BestBuy in my area. It was super easy. It was a quick in and out and I was told at the store that I got my copy of Diablo 3 that the Colorado stores in my area are not even requiring a managers override anymore because so many people are taking advantage of the deal. They said that the higher ups have just set the price match in place in the system and that it is currently flowing through the system. I am not sure if that means corporate or just the stores in our region but I am assuming it is more than just that store because they said stores but anyway I would recommend that everyone just keep on trying and I wish everyone luck who has been having trouble getting a match. Once again if it would help anyone out to have pictures of receipts to use in your talks with managers to show other stores are price matching let me know and I will get mine posted up showing Diablo 3, Skyrim, and Starcraft 2. Also for all of my Colorado CAGS the store at 5395 S Wadsworth Blvd in Lakewood only has 1 copy of both Diablo 3 and Skyrim left. Good Luck Everyone :)!

Has anyone had any luck price matching at Target? I've never tried it there before, and actually I'm not even sure if they price match at all. I'm trying to score a copy of Skyrim if I can.

They do, but they seem very strict with their PM policy.

Tried today and they told me they only match offers from physical ads, meaning the official circular from TRU.

Extreme YMMV. I got very lucky with Diablo 3, with no objections other than having both a CSM and a manager come over to approve it.

Second time for Skyrim (at a few different WMs) was an ordeal. First one was denied right away, second time is detailed a page or two back involving my old lady. Got ugly, but they caved and I got Skyrim for $10.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Finally made it in to my local (~40 miles) TRU, no Skyrim. Guy working there I spoke to as I left remarked on how they had the "lamest collection of PC games in town".

Not wrong :(

if you type this thread title into google search, it is pratically everywhere at all the major forum, whether it being gear toward gaming or not. it is basically like the bestbuy blowout sale, when the list was leaked before the sale even started,lol and ppl were pre-buying the game.
