if you see the short female Hispanic manager, get your hopes down.

And really, the bummiest best buy I've ever seen claimed a sale is bad for their business? Not making a sale is bad for business. O_o
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Bought out the remaining supply of pc games near me SC2, ACR, BM: AC and BF3 at BB. Apparently all the TRU around me only have Skyrim Collectors and not the clearance one.

...and another place said they cant price match it because it is bad for business...


I would have called them out on that. I know why they actually price match, so OOS is an ok reason, but saying the price match is too low and therefore it's bad for business essentially makes their price match guarantee, "We will price match any store if we feel like it isn't that good of a deal"...

but... price matching clearence items that that store still carries all the time is bad for buisness...

Hopefully pm'ing all these copies and taking a big loss isnt what finally puts BB out.of business. Gotta figure they are losing money by the boatload on this

BB is going out of business because of lackluster customer service and a well-deserved negative reputation due to a history of uninformed associates pushing $100 monster cables on old ladies.

I checked my 2 local TRUs and could not find any of the games.
Since I was going to Best Buy to get some movies I figured I would try to get a price match.
I got the last copy of Diablo 3 off the shelf and a copy of Starcraft 2 (these are the only ones I wanted). Went to customer service. Mentioned I wanted to pm Tru, the girl there had said she had pmed some the other day. She checked to make sure they were still on sale on the site and then pmed them no problem.
I paid and walked away very happy.

true. I mean essentially we are all just exploiting the fact that TRU didn't put the word "clearance" on their website for the items. If they did, no one would have gotten a price match, and rightfully so.

I mean w/e. Best Buy has their loopholes, and so do we. You win some, you lose some, I suppose.

Any CAGs in Toledo? I just went to the TRU on Monroe St. and they had about 2 copies each of AC:Revelations, Arkham City, Sims 3 Ambitions, Old Republic and 1 copy of the Starcraft Battle Chest. The TRU on Reynolds doesn't have crap, though.

I wouldn't get a PM on Batman:AC unless you want the physical disk. Amazon Digital has a Batman bundle [AA GOTY + AC] for $10 this week [both are STEAM keys]

A very cool Skyrim Mod:

Anyone have success at best buy at old orchard in skokie, il? I went and they said I have to buy pokemon to get it for 70% off which was not even true. I argued with them and how it said less than $20 games get the 70% off discount and since the game is now less than $20 it showed that deal up as well.

another just said they dont price match clearance games.

edit - tried another and they said they got an email from corporate saying they will not be price matching toys r us anymore because of the pc clearance sale.

Went to Best Buy today and the manager said they only price match in-store items and not online prices. Strange because I showed the online price for SSX from GameStop last week and they priced matched that to $20

Lame.

With Best Buy accepting tons of PS2 games from last weeks Gamestop sale, I doubt they are hurting with the added inventory they accumulated.

I can confirm the memo as the customer service rep helping me was in the process of price matching my copy of Starcraft II when another employee stepped in and pulled up the memo and shot down the price match.

Stop being rational you crazy bastard. Best Buy is the primary cause behind the decline of consumer rights and Western civilization.

I did PM there but it was only 1 or 2 days after the story broke here. These tremendously advantageous deals have a short half-life, but half the time it's a crap-shoot on which cashier, CS robot, or manager you encounter. Give it another shot if it makes sense to do so.

South Florida Walmart and Best Buy stores will NOT honor this deal as a price match:

Walmart managers at 16 locations have all said the same thing - "Item must be from a flyer or ad, and not printed from online. Item must also be IN STOCK at the local store and only original flyers will be accepted."

Best buy managers at 12 locations have all said the same thing as well - "We do not honor the Toys R Us deal because it is a clearance item."


Anyone else have luck anywhere else in the South Florida area???

I managed to get my local Walmart to price match Diablo III.

I was in there picking up some batteries today and I decided to take a chance and ask the customer service desk what their policy was regarding price matching deals that are only listed online. To my great surprise, they said that as long as I could show it to them on my smartphone, they'd do the price match. They told me to go get the items that I wanted.

I went back to the electronic section to see what they had in stock, and the only games that they had were Diablo III & Starcraft 2. I grabbed them both and took them to the CS desk. When I showed them the price online, the CS rep's eyes bugged out. She had to call the manager (or at least, the person in charge at the moment) over because she wasn't expecting it to be over 50% off. After several minutes thinking about it, the manager said that they weren't sure if they could do it. Then after a few more moments, she said that she'd let me have one of them at the price match price and to choose which one. I chose Diablo III.

I'm stunned that I actually got them to say yes to the price match. Even if it was for only one of the games. I kinda get the feeling that I got away with something because the woman in charge said that she was gonna have to ask the head honcho for some clarification on the price matching policy. I'm not sure if they were supposed to do what they did for me. Hopefully I didn't get anybody in trouble.

I asked my local Best Buy if they could price match SC2 since they price matched CODMW3 the day before and I got the awful answer of "NO". The associate told me that they received an EMAIL stating not to price match ToysrUs anymore. I guess from the looks of things around here on CAG, the email was sent company wide.

Wow I was wondering why this thread didn't die yet. Only to see cags trying to PM an item sold out for weeks now. Did the memo state no PMs to TRU for PC only or everything period?

Congrats cag you killed a PM option at the current best gaming retailer.

Yep there are always going to be those one or two maroons that have to act like jackasses and ruin future deals just so they can get 12 copies of Diablo III.

you sound surprised, lol. it is bound to happen eventually, with all these ppl lurking, and joining this forum, then openly sharing / bragging about their loots from deals like this.
