Doesn't pricematch anyone or even their own website.  (from what I could find)

 

 

Any place else that you shop at would be of help.  I saw something posted in the Target thread about how the person online stated they don't pricematch newegg.com but they do.  A sticky with each major retailer's pricematch policy and list of stores would be helpful for everyone looking to buy.

I have zero idea why this was moved from the Video Game Deals section when it would be of much more service in that forum as a sticky.

 

Everyone looking for deals goes to the Video Game Deals forum and then wonders if a place pricematches the odd place they find the deal (in the case I showed above, Target pricematching Newegg).  Instead of trying to figure out how to find this information from a website or trying to figure out what subsection of the forums has this information, have a sticky placed at the top would be greatly beneficial to everyone.

It was moved because this is not a deal, and is instead a discussion of retailers policies, which is why it is in "Shopping Discussion"

It pertains to pricematching which helps out deals as was perfectly demonstrated in the Target thread.  Even for BF this would help with people trying to see what policies are in effect during that.

 

This section receives a lot less traffic than the other one.  It will not be as beneficial here as it in there.  You are right in that it is not a deal but that is why I said a sticky would help out with deals.  Over in this sub you may as well delete it as people rarely even look in here.  The last front page post has a date of August 30.

I feel like Gamestop not pricematching is a sick way of playing the long game. With every other retailer running out of stock of certain games they know they'll end up being one of the few only stores that sell a specific game and at full price.
