Why would Best Buy pricematch a boutique store like Sony Style? These hardly exist anywhere. Furthermore, what store price matches another's clearance? Good luck with that.

Can't blame those CAGs for trying. I have seen crazier PMs.

If your Sony store/outlet is within 25 miles of your BB, they should PM the prices there. I called and the one near a Sony store said they'd match as long as it was in stock.

Hrm. They're in one of the nicer malls in Northern Virginia. Interesting that it's technically an outlet. Never heard that before. Sucks that so few stores are running the promo. Shots of my receipts are under spoiler tags on off chance they'll help someone PM (and to prove that the deal was, at some point, live).

Spoiler

Thanks for posting those pics. If it's not too much trouble, could you upload a version of the second receipt that has the price for Mass Effect Trilogy? It's juuuust cut off at the bottom.

Just got back from my store @ Madison Ave.(NYC) and they did not have the extra 50% off. I even had them scan a game and it came out as marked. Disappointed to say the least. May go back next Monday but not holding my breath since the games I was most interested on (Journey and NCAA Football) were gone, unless they re-stock. But I doubt that very much.

No additional discounts at the Valley Fair (San Jose) location. Tried to ring up Lego Batman (red tag marked $24.9x?) and it rung up at that price.

Here's the thing: I'm pretty sure they'll all ring up at the price sticker listed. It's up to the clerk to apply the discount, which is why their name is shown next to the item being discounted.

Again, I don't have much hope for Sony Stores PMing other stores or vice versa, but again I wonder if Sony Stores will match each other?

Clerk's name shows up on the receipt for normal sales too.

Went back to PCity earlier today and the signage was down. I also got the line about it being a weekend offer even though I got the deal on a Monday (and from two different clerks, before and after my Genius Bar appointment).

I guess I'll try to swing by again over the weekend, but I'm not expecting much. Funny (and sad) how poorly staffed and organized the Sony store is compared to the Apple store right next door.

I find it ridiculous that Apple staff members are referred to as "Genius".

Hah. My daughter got hold of my phone and shattered the screen. Call them techs or grunts or whatever you want. I'll go with the company line when I'm treated well. :D

Damage was clearly my fault, but Genius Bar Man swapped my phone for a refurb. unit no questions asked. In and out in under 10 minutes. Even offered to copy my photos, etc. to a drive in case I didn't have a recent backup.

Of course I do (Geez, what an insult to my intelligence :bomb:). But they have a dedicated customer service line. I don't know if you can still use it if you bought the machine at retail stores other than their site.

Dell's customer service is the absolute worst I have seen, they couldn't even give me the correct rack last time I bought a $5000 server.

Yeah, I stopped by the store before closing (~9:20pm) and had them price-check ME Trilogy and MGR: Revengeance. Needless to say, I was disappointed that they were back up to $49.99. :cry:

I figured since I was in Vegas for vacation I'd checkout the Sony store - sadly no additional 50% off prices shown as another CAG pointed out. I would have loved Metal Gear Rising for $25.

Depends on the store and rep that you speak to. My son dropped my iTouch and cracked the screen. Asked that I pay the fee to replaced iTouch which was almost the cost of a new iTouch. Eventually replaced it with a new iTouch 2 months later not because of the glass but the volume was stuck on up. Co-worker who accidentally dropped his iPhone in the pool was expecting to pay the 150 to replace the phone but gave him a free replacement.
