I bought it at Best Buy a few weeks ago. Never done the price match thing -- do I just go in-store with the receipt?


Yup :) Go to customer service next week, say "it's $20 less this week" and they'll give you $20+tax. If you don't have a receipt, they can look up your purchase with reward zone or possibly your credit card. Quicker if you have a receipt though.

Yes, because you're "protected" under the Holiday Price Match guarantee. Just bring your receipt to the store when the deal goes live and you should be fine.


Thanks for the info, Vigilante.

Thanks for the early ad, MidnightMetal.

I may just stop going back and forth on the 3DS XL and pick one up.

Feel so stupid for not preordering CoD with the GCU bonus. Now I have to keep hunting around for a decent deal on this damn game.

Damn it, just bought Darksiders 2 for $51 (15% off of $60) on the WiiU this past Sunday during their "RZ members only" event at a local BB. If I ask them to price match will they just refund me $1 or will they refund me ~$7.50 (Sale price of $50 - 15%)?!? If it's the former then not worth it for me. Thanks!

Probably because it's still new. I already have Nintendoland and NSMBU but I would like to rebuy AC3/Batman and also pick up Scribblenauts for the Wii U but I'm not going to pay full price for them.

^^^this. I already have the same games plus Fifa. I do want Madden but I do not want to double dip as I have it for the 360. GS has like 4 games coming out for the Wii this yr and nothing really until March. I am starting to regret I bought it so soon as there is absolutely nothing that I would pay full price for it just yet.

I preordered a copy of Far Cry 3 online for store pickup. What's the best way of purchasing another game so that I can price match next week with minimal hassle?

If u got far cry for the $20 RZ offer trying to get the $40 will kill the $20 w/o phone CS bending the rules in 30 days. If u just want the $40 GC just buy 2 games ago & return the 2nd Far cry using the in-store p/u receipt.

To be honest the $40 GC isn't really a good deal if you're good at getting pm's since you're stuck paying full price for both games. I'd much rather pm each title to $40 or less($80 total w/possible $20 credit) vs $120 w/$40 credit but that's just me. $120 gets me at least 3 games

Are you sure about the no-receipt thing? I want to PM my copy of Black Ops, but lost my receipt :-#

If you have a RZ #, they can reprint your receipts at will w/ just a little info (I did it when one of my receipts faded). It's a little harder w/ just a credit card, but I've seen it done at other retailers (I've done it at Target). If you used cash, I dont know how they'd track that.

BTW: If you have a RZ# you can get the receipt number from myrz.com and make it easier for the CS rep to pull up the specific receipt.

Is there a possibility that Amazon will price match Halo 4 on Sunday?

I doubt it. They might do a $20 credit with $10 AIV credit.

Probably not since Kmart sucks.

This will mark the first time I use the extended PM policy for Silver members.

Gotta call this one in though... since it was a dot com order.

Just traded my copy back to Best Buy for $39. If I can find my receipt, I'll PM to get an extra $20.

So that's how I do it? I preordered online and wasn't entirely sure how to go about price matching for this one. I saw a phone number on their website. What will I need to prove to them the price when I call?

Got the Sears ad in today and they had a similar Halo deal with one caveat.

:360: Halo 4 - $49.99 for non-Shop Your Way Reward members and $39.99 for SYWR members. Membership is free so yeah, there's no reason for you to not get the cheaper price.

Price is valid on 12/9 - 12/15 as well.

You call their regular toll free number and speak to an associate.

I've done this only once before, and it was pretty simple. Took no longer than 10 minutes.

Normally, yes, but Halo 4 falls under their Holiday Price Match Policy. Anything purchased after Sunday, November 4th can be price matched up until January 24th.
