So has everyone basically had success price matching Toys R Us B1 G1 50% off with Target or Best Buy?


My target wouldn't do it but my local best buy did no issue.

On another note anyone know how much I would get back if I bought BLOPS2 $60 and the 16GB Vita memory card ($30) online and returned the BLOPS to a store? Would they actually give me back the $60?

I just tried to price match Portal 2 on BestBuy.com with the Kmart ad only for the customer service to state they do not price match video games. Is this true? I never price matched there before.

Well, what could I do? She wasn't very well gonna argue it and calling them is the only way to price match online according to the site, I waited on the phone for 30 mins. Today's the last day the ad is good for so I don't know what other choice I possibly have. There's a Best Buy store that has it in stock but it's a half hour drive from here, I'd be better off just spending the extra $10 and getting it for $20.

I still find it absurd that no retail store of any kind in my area has any copies of it.

I picked up the 3DS XL Mario Kart Bundle at TRU with the free $30 gift card for $199. Waited for the gift card to activate, then used it to purchase a $50 Amazon gift card, on sale for 10% off / $45. Used the gift card along with the $5 off $25 Amazon promo to get Ocarina of Time 3D for $30.99. Wasn't really interested in TRU's game selection to use the BOGO 50% sale.

So all in all, I paid $201 (+ tax) for the 3DS XL with Mario Kart and Ocarina of Time. Not bad IMO :)

Just pricematched Portal 2 at BB. Employee and I had a hard time finding it in the Kmart system but he finally did. Was able to use a $5 GC and get it for $4.99! Plenty of copies still in stock at the Nashua NH Best Buy.

PMed Portal 2 at Best Buy (for both 360 and PS3). I was getting a couple of copies as gifts and one for myself (4 total), and they had to call a manager to do it. He gave me the stinkeye, but PMed all of them for 9.99 each. BB in Aurora, CO still had several copies for both 360 and PS3 still in stock.

Any reason why the $20 GC isn't listed on Best Buy's website for the 3DS XL bundle?

I managed to pricematch 16GB vita cards and 32GB cards at best buy. Target however wouldn't do it. All I had to do was show best buy the TRU ad/book.

I combined the $10 best buy certificate that has been going around. So two 16GB cards came out at $87 total and the two 32GB came out to I believe $147 or so.

$25 cards were completely gone, but $50 cards were completely stocked... probably because they didn't have a sale sign on them. I buy so much stuff on Amazon that I don't mind having the leftover balance.

Combined with the $10 for $20 Groupon from not too long ago, it would have been even better... already used mine on something else!

I did. 16GB cards instore are still $59.99 and 32GB are $99.99

So one 16GB card was $27 and one 32GB was $47. I just need to return the games I bought with the cards to get the money back on those. Or switch them w/e the people I bought them for want.

Edit: Let me clarify. I mixed the 16GB cards with one game and on the receipt the card is the one that got the 50% price off. the 32GB cards were bought by a friend mixed with a PS3 accessory(I believe they were headphones) for 50% off the 32GB card.

that's sweet!
i suppose you can't really stack promotions right
like pricematch newegg's 32GB at 80 then apply the Buy One Get One 50% OFF

hmm would love to get the PULSE and then the 32GB at 50% OFF sounds like a good combination.

(tried with the 3DS, didn't work)

I am not sure. All I know is they price matched right away when I showed them the physical ad. I never tried to price match an online only store at best buy before.
