When does this deal end? Want to go to my local Toys R Us and see if they have any.

the deal ends when tru pulls the price listings of those games from their website.

While in Dallas visiting family, and attending the state fair for once, I searched for Diablo 3 at a TRU, but they had all their PC stuff locked behind the door where they keep extra games and electronic stuff.

So I went to a nearby Best Buy. The guy there was surprised at the price. He checked on his computer that I didn't make the thing up, and then asked me if one of the nearby TRUs had it. I told him that I believed one of them should have one. He then sold me D3 for $9.99. :D

Walmart will do a PM based on what I show them on my phone? Got shot down at TRU, but I might go into Walmart to try this.


Walmart does not PM online retail stores according to the PM policy, but it is YMMV.

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.


Target does not PM online retail stores, and you need a hard copy of the AD in hand.

Cloulien - I think it depends on your area. & how the manager is

Target is definitely a no-go, Wal-Mart not likely, and Best Buy you at least have a chance but it varies. No success yet but hopefully this other BB will work.

I'd like an answer as to why my post about best buy banning scalpers was deleted. I see no reason why my long and detailed post is now gone.

You can try Emeryville store, I got my D3 & SC2 there, no questions asked. Pleasant Hill was a no go for me...

Any cags in Florida able to pricematch at bb?
Orange Park, Fl was a no go because manager said is was way below the cost of what they sell it for so he wouldn't sell it to me even though the associate was going to do it.

I went in with a friend to BB, and tried to get three copies of skyrim. The cashier was surprised, and called the manager to approve. He said TRU had to have it in stock for it to work, but he'd let me get one copy anyway(we never checked if TRU had it in stock, but im sure they didn't). I asked him if I could get 2, since my friend who was with me wanted one, so he let me get 2 copies.

I guess that's fine, since I just wanted a third copy to try and sell for 20, and make my money back, but 10 dollars is pretty cheap anyways. At least me and my friend got one.

I find it weird many people are asking about the inventories, and PM's of local TRU's, and BB's when it would be much easier just to call the store and ask. Even if some random person told you it was there, it may be gone by the time you go. The only way to know is to call.

Don't even bother, go to BB on 5 ave, or the one on 23rd street.

They PM me no questions asked.

I got the last copy of both battlefield and diablo from 23rd though.

Also, I ordered from TRU friday. The order hasn't made any change on there website or in new emails. Kind of weird. What sucks is I put it in before the price change. I plan to have TRU pricematch when it arrives but now I'm wondering if it actually will. They wouldn't be the first people with a shitty online inventory.

And calling isnt a sure fire way either. There's been plenty of times I've called stores for random items and was told it wasnt in stock and when you get to the store its sitting there. Calling on awesome deals is a good way to alert employees to keep the item for themselves.

I went to the local TRU and they had 2 copies of Rage left. I asked about Diablo and they said they sold out. The guy told me to price match at Best Buy. I asked him about them calling to confirm inventory and he said not to worry about it. I went 3 blocks to Best Buy and showed them the website. The guy argued that the $9.99 was the sale price after the 70% off for also buying Pokemon Black 2. When I pointed out that 70% off $60 makes it $18 he called his manager. She gave me the same speech but called TRU. The girl who answered at customer service didn't transfer the BB manager to the games department, just told her they no longer sell video games.

Price matching is a battle. I get pissed off every time I try to do it. It's honestly just not worth it.

I feel sorry for you, the Best Buys around Utah do it most of the time without any questions or managers.

Since I was in the neighborhood, I pit-stopped at the Roseville, MI TRU and they actually had Rage, Ass Creed Rev, and Batdude City along with WOW Cata. Of course, all the GOOD stuff was gone.
