I was browsing Google Express because of that current Groupon promotion (https://www.cheapass...selection-ymmv/) and noticed EVE Valkyrie was 13.99. Shipping kills it if ordering through Frys alone (came out to $15 as the cheapest option for me), but using Google Express made it $4.99 when buying more than $15 worth of stuff. I walked away with EVE and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Limited Edition for $35 using that Groupon. 

 

Here's the Frys link - http://www.frys.com/...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

This reminds me that I need to trade my copy in while it's still worth $15. I didn't really care for EVE Valkyrie, after the novelty of the VR wears off it's just not very fun IMO. I enjoyed the X-Wing  VR mission more, but a lot of that has to do with it being Star Wars.

Might be interested in buying your copy. Sent you a PM.

Dang, thought I got a great deal on it last week for $25 new on Ebay.  Great price for a fun game.

Awesome find! This has never been less that $40 with GCU at Best Buy. Just snagged a copy for in-store pickup. Never done it at Fry's, hope it works out ok.. also going to pick up NSW Imaginators for $37.19 b/c my kids want it on there and I don't think it'll get that cheap until the Holidays.

Frys keeps cancelling my order for in-store pickup.  Going to have to call Best Buy for the price match.

Successfully price matched at bestbuy.com via live chat even though OOS for shipping and no local Frys. YMMV.

Thanks for the info. Picking one up. I thought there was a complete version of this game getting released. Am I mixing my games up?

Picked up Starblood Arena with the Groupon Google Express deal. Played for an hour and decided the game was trash. Luckily saw this deal and went straight to BB to trade in Starblood and price match Eve. Thanks Op.

I was feeling jipped after playing Starblood but I had enjoyed the Eve demo so I know I'll like this much better. Literally nobody playing Starblood online and the single player is only bots. I advise everyone to avoid that game.

Price matched....Bought 7 for 105 ... Returned them to the same store for store credit got $350 in store credit. Bought 7 again for $105 using store credit.  returned them for store credit. got $350... Pocketed $595 store credit. Trying to decide whether to get a TV or an Oculus Rift and use the credit $100 credit promotion to purchase an Eve.....

 

Sure the tactics are a little shady.... But it went back to the same store... The stores policy...Not mine. 

 

Bought a RIFT bundle

I recommend target for more bang for your buck. Lowest return price at Target is fullprice 59.99+ tx $15 will get you $63

But is fraud if you're just returning it to the same retailer and they ask you if you want store credit or cash?

You just abused the price match and return system to cheat a retailer out of around $800, and probably got some employee's in trouble. Do you seriously think you were in the right or even the middle?

There is no way they let him do that. Unless he has a friend on the inside but that guy will be fired by Friday.

Is bb the best place to price match? Theres a target closer to me but they give me problems sometimes with price matching and I'm not too sure how many stores price match fry's.

I had bought Starblood Arena on sale yesterday for $25 after gcu. But this is a much better deal, will return Starblood today and possibly pick it up when it's closer to $10. I had heard its not very active anymore as well

I actually tried to price match at Walmart and Target once and they said they will not PM Frys. I have yet to find a store other than Best Buy to PM Frys.

But it's a big corporation so 'we' don't care.

Also, pics or it didn't happen

I just got a PSVR a few weeks ago during Gamestop's HUGE price mistaking with the Refubs (199.99 for like 2 hours) and this would be lovely, but finding a place that would actually price match Fry's will be tough. My nearest Fry's is in the next state...

 

Last week I had Walmart refuse to even price match their OWN APP for a Nighthawk Router. Said "I can only give you the price once you add this item to the cart on the website" THE PRICE WAS HIGHER THAN MSRP AND SOLD BY SOME RANDOM ONLINE SELLER. (Sorry that Assistant Manager pissed me off)

 

I've had no luck price matching Fry's at Target and Best Buy when some amiibo were like 3 dollars about a year back, but I might give it a try. Target is where i'd try first, as a while ago I got an employee to price match Gamestop's physical ad when Pokken Tournament came out when they mistakenly marked it as 39.99, so its worth a shot.

Kudos to everyone who got one of these! I probably should have price matched with Best Buy (since my Frys order got cancelled), but never thought of it at the time! Hopefully it reaches $20 soon as that's pretty much my buy point!

What store in 2017 allowed this? Or rather whose POS allowed it?
