I can confirm that the $40 gift card spits out even if you're price matching the games. I bought Far Cry 3 ($49.99 Frys PM) and Fifa 13 ($39.99 Amazon PM) and received a $40 gift card.


Looks like I'm going to PM FC3 for $50 and Hitman for $40! Thanks for posting that!

Are you talking about the $20 for pre-ordering FC3? If so, you need to pick it up tomorrow as it's the last day you can pick it up and still qualify for the $20 bonus.

edit: Actually Tuesday is the last day.

When you say it spits it out . . . What do you mean?

They mean that after you get them to enter the price match, when they start to hit total on the register, a prompt will come up regardless and remind them to package it out with a $40 GC.

I did this today, price matched Halo 4 and Hitman Absolution PS3 with Amazon for $39.99 each and got the $40 GC no problem. Thanks dino88!

Unable to price match 3DSXL deal at Target since it involves a gift card. The system will not allow the transaction. Boo :(

After having a manager (or whatever he was - he was running the guest services counter) confirm that I do get the GC after price matching, the electronics cashier went back to his register and scanned the 3DS then scanned the GC which was automatically added as $20 then immediately discounted in the system. Then he selected the 3DS on the computer and adjusted the price. The machine or system didn't flinch and no supervisor override was needed. I don't see how they can say the system will not allow it?

Maybe ask them to try again in that order? Though I don't imagine they like being told by customers how to ring up the merchandise :D

EDIT: oh, I see you are an employee. That is bs on their part.

Just piling on that the PM stacks with the GC promo. Picked up my preorder copy of Far Cry 3 (PM Frys $50) and Hitman (PM Target $40) with the $40 GC and the preorder Far Cry DLC.

The only issue is that the GC promo shows up on the receipt as a package deal with $20 assigned to each game so any further PMs, etc. may be difficult...

Was moreso thinking of the people who didn't PM at the time of purchase. They might have difficulty PM'ing after the fact because of the $20 package deal notation, but yeah, after the PMs/$40GC/$20 preorder RZ bonus, can't complain personally...

Yeah... it's looking more like they just outright lied to me. I was trying to get it on my 15 minute break, so I didn't have time to haggle or ask specifics. Oh well, I still bought one at Best Buy so I'm still a happy camper, but I'd rather have that Redcard discount and the gift card to boot. ;)

Just take a competitor's print ad and the item you want to price match (before purchase) to the counter in the electronics section (or customer service depending on the store) and ask for the price match.

As far as the GC goes, it seems that it depends on when the GC is added to the transaction - anyone correct me if I'm wrong. For example, a price match could be done after everything is rung up at which point it just depends on whether the system allows for the adjustment. If an item is adjusted before adding the bonus items (unless the act of ringing up the item automatically triggers the bonus item to be added to the purchase), the system may not recognize the adjusted item as applicable to the promotion. You start getting into how the systems are programmed which becomes speculation like everything in this paragraph.

Or, depending on the store, for price matching after you make a purchase, just take the competitor's ad with your receipt to customer service and you get a refund if the store allows for that. Read up on the policy first though in case you need to argue with or school a cashier on the store's policy.

All this said, I've seen overrides by managers work wonders if the manager is willing and able.

Not a BB deal, but I went to Toys R Us today to have them price match their online price of $19.99 for Epic Mickey Power of Illusion for 3DS. They did without any issue, plus I got the $10 gift card that comes with the game this week automatically. So...

Epic Mickey Power of Illusion and a $10 gift card for $19.99 after price match. Good deal.

I bought Far Cry and 3 copies of Halo 4 at one Best Buy and got two $40 gift cards. Didn't realize until I was by a different Best Buy that I forgot to use my reward zone certificate and try to use my B2G1 coupon. So I went into that Best Buy to get more Halo 4's. They could do the price match, but couldn't do the gift card with it, all depends on the store I guess.

I'm passing by the one that let me price match and get the gift cards tomorrow so I'll probably stop by.
