Sounds like everyone is having some pretty good luck PMing these at Best Buy. I've got about 3 hours of work left, so I hope they still have some in stock when I get there. Plan on picking up a copy of each Pokemon game and Trials for Xbone while I am there.

Grabbed 2 at the Walmart at Anderson in ATX.
No prob here. Anything to stay out of Best Buy.

Fred Meyer is owned by Kroger, maybe that's why it can be price matched across the country.

I grabbed 2 smash bros., one for me and one for my kid.

Priced matched Smash successfully at a Best Buy in Gaithersburg, MD. Was never question if there were a local store, they only did not know they matched FredMeyer, but I showed them and they honored the price. Took 5 mins. Recommend those on the fence to try their local BBs.

Yes where? lol

 

More Illinois cags. If you guys ever want to come to a meet up, we usually have them in Chicago. Here is the thread where we try to network: https://www.cheapass...y-city/page-108

I am in Chicago, went to the South Loop store. But the manager said Fred Meyer was on the PM list, so I'm assuming it'd work anywhere

 

OK I called ahead to Toys R Us in Orland Park IL. The person there had "no idea what a Fred Myer is" so they said it's a no go. Then they got another person who thought I was talking about "Meijers" and said YES it's fine, but I explained FRED MYERS and they said no and went to get a manager. This who's on first act went on for about 10 mins till they ultimately said no.... then yes again. Then they weren't sure. lol

 

Not wanting to bungle around with them I walked into Best Buy Tinley park IL with the print up of the ad and they had NO PROBLEM at all matching. Which was nice because I had a gift card as well. So it worked there. They even said that chain is in their system.

 

So best Buy worked out on PM here.

Tried Toy's R Us in Indio, CA on sunday for Super Smash Bros. 3DS, but it seems every Toy's R Us from here to Ontario, CA is sold out. Went to the Best Buy in Palm Desert, CA and they had no problems price matching. Was in and out in five minutes, no questions asked.

Gonna go try to price match in a couple of hours in North NJ. 

 

I'll report back

 

Good luck and please post your findings. I'm in South NJ and wondering if I should even bother trying.

 

 

Has anyone had any luck calling the Best Buy # and PM'ing over the phone?

I forgot about smash bros. doh!

 

I was able to pm each pokemon at BB. The kid didn't want to do it even though fred meyer is on their list, so he called the manager. Manager said as long as they have it in stock it is fine. 

 

I saw 3 toon links and a sheik on the pegs.

 

 

 

Oh and these are pokemon codes:

Just a heads up if extra incentive was the club nintendo code, my copy did not come with the code and from what I've been reading newer reprints of titles may not come with the code. It could be a fluke though, I emailed them about it since it's listed as an eligible title.

Yeah, it's blank. This was a copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby since I forgot to mention that. The only insert is the one on viewing the electronic manual. Back cover is completely white.

Um...what about us midwesterners? No Fred Meyer near me. TRU or Best Buy is the best bet?

TRU Pricematching policy specifically states FredMeyer.com. So they have to Pricematch, even if one of the FM stores is not in your area.

Buffalo NY, got shot down at the first BB in Amherst (Blvd). Guy said he couldnt add it to cart (as its BM deal) and then said not within 500 miles.

 

Second store (Transit/Williamsville) PMed no problem. Very happy I got Smash Bros. Thanks OP!

Thanks again OP. I got both ORAS and SSB PM'd at BB.

 

Cashier said he has never heard of Fred Meyer before. Told him to check the PM list since I've seen it there before. It was and allowed it for me. For any CAGs that struggled with this PM, might ask them to do that next time.

I went to the downtown smiths today. No super smash bros to be found but I'm going to another store on friday. I'm sad I missed out on the twenty dollar deal on my first copy but glad I get the special cd from club nintendo. I have two ds hoping my fiance will play online with me.
