Thanks for the advice! I actually did have it in my cart, and I gave them the direct links. I don't have Prime unfortunately. Maybe I should have just told them I was buying it no matter what in the next hour or something, from somewhere else if I couldn't get it matched. (I just asked if there was a way to get it at the lower price through Amazon)
Maybe I'll try again later. Thanks again.
Also, do they keep track of chats/PMes given? Obviously they would keep a record of chats, but would they notice if you had tried doing this a bunch of times, or if they had already given you a "one-time promotional price"?
Yes, mentioning that you are in a 'hurry' and you need this as a gift (for yourself of course). I also let them know I submitted that I found a lower price, and reference that as well.
I'm sure they keep a track of when you contacted them and maybe how it was resolved, but hey it's better to take a shot then always ask 'what if.' For the record, I've gotten price adjustments on things by $5-20 before on other items so don't be afraid to ask. Sometimes the rep you talked to already gave that price match to a customer before you so keep trying! Good Luck! )

Tried to PM through Amazon only because some people saying they got it to work. Told me they would consider and email me. Got the response "Thanks for contacting us."
Discouraging enough where I'm not going to try again.
I tend to get an answer when I'm Instant Messaging them.
1) Put the item in your cart since the Amazon Reps can see your account.
2) Show your interest in buying the item and ask the rep to assist since you saw a price cheaper
3) Provide the direct links to both the website and the direct ad.
4) Mention if you have an Amazon Prime account, or state how long you've been shopping with them.
5) Let the rep you know of the policy but ask them if there is anything you can do since you want to purchase it immediately. Even ask for a one time price adjustment.
6) If the rep does not give you the discount, politely thank them and leave immediately get a new rep.
7) Another option is to discuss another product for a bit then at the end bring up the price match for the video game.
These are not guaranteed but are helpful tactics. Good Luck!

OP you are amazing!
I got Amazon to price match for me! )
You are now connected to Amazon from Amazon.com
I am looking to get Super Mario 3D World and at Target is currently showing $34.99 instead of $59.99. I have submitted to Amazon of the lower price, do you know if I buy it for that price through you?
Hello this is (AMAZON REP), do you mean for a price matching of this item?. Can you please tell me more about it?
Hello (AMAZON REP), good Sunday to you! )
Sure, Target is currently having a deal on some games, I am interested in (1) Super Mario 3D world
Hi. Good Sunday to you too

I wanted to know, since I've been a loyal customer to Amazon if they could price adjust so I could buy, I have (1) item in my cart, ready to buy.
Okay, Let me check on that first Joe, give me a minute or two,
Thank you very much!
Is this Target you mentioned is also a retailer like amazon?
Target is both a brick a mortar store but also is a retailer like Amazon
and has an online store
oh I see, Joe we don't do price match to the other retailer, but for one time exception I will give you a promotional certificate for the difference of the price between Amazon and Target, will that be okay with you?
Oh, that would be great! Thank you!
you're welcome Joe, since the difference of the price is $25, so I will issue a Promotional Certificate for $25, okay?
Yes, thank you very much!
You're very much welcome. So I already issued the promo and you will receive a confirmation email regarding to it.
Thank you very much (AMAZON REP)!
you're welcome Joe, Is there anything else I can help you?
No, you've been great! A+ customer service! )
Pleasure is all mine! I hope you have a lovely evening.
You as well!
So yeah, I got it for $34.96 without taxes and free shipping!
Having lost my job recently this is truly a great post christmas gift to myself. Thanks OP!
