I recently purchased 2 of these cards from PC World, so know this deal does work.

PC World currently have their 110% price promise, and have a limited number of people they will price match against.

The price for their 2gb Sandisk Micro SD card on their site is £19.85 (bloomin ridiculous price), however they say they will pricematch http://www.play.com, and play have the same card for a mere £8.49 (UPDATE, PLAY HAVE REDUCED THEIR PRICE TO £7.99, MAKING THE PC WORLD PRICEMATCH PRICE NOW £6.81)

PC World will match this price, and take 10% of the difference off, reducing the price of a 2gb Micro SD card on the high street to a SUPERB £7.36
I managed to bag 2 of these, even though the t&c's of the price match mention that it is limited to 1.

Best to check the majority of memory cards at Pc World, as there are bargains to be had, eg.

Sandisk Extreme 3 2gb Compact Flash - PC world £59..99, Play.com £13.49
Price after pricematch - £8.84

Sandisk Extreme 3 4gb Compact Flash - PC World £94.99, Play.com £22.99
Price after pricematch - £15.79

It would be better to add this to the OP and then make it a general thread about cheap memory cards?

Why do they rip people off in the first place... they shouldnt need to price match. Pc World is way too overpriced.

But nice find - nonetheless!!! Voted hot

All I've done in the past is print out the page from the website that has the lower price, and print out the price promise policy from PC World, and take them into your local store.

Pick up the item you want, and take them to the checkout and advise them you wish to get a pricematch :), be sure to make them aware that it is 10% off the difference as well, as they tend to "forget" that.

Good point Gary, I've amended the title to state "memory card deals", and included the Compact flash deal info.

Cheers

only worth it if you are living close by as with play.com you get quidco as well. I am talking about memory cards but there could be more savings for an expensive item.

Where on their price match terms does it say they price match play? My local PC World swansea, are not the most forthcomming when offering discounts at the best of time let alone price matching.

I agree wth Octopus, I have a PC World fairly close to me but I would rather give play.com the business as the costs (pertrol etc) and the time involved in doing this are too much compared to pressing a few buttons online, well for a memory card anyway. Also I feel quite strongly that PC World and others in this situation should not be given the business as they should not be so high in the first place.

I do agree however if it was a bigger item then it is a different story as it always pays to shop around.
#15
Cool... only reason why i ask is that i work for DSGi and i have been told that PCworld should not be matching the Internet any more....
#16
Will try this today, voted hot.

I just received a Kingston 2gb microSD from valueshop @ £7.55 delivered. This price was £6.86 + 69p postage, so in theory I could have bought 2 for £14.41 delivered. Arrived in 2 days.

This is really useful!

So Play bring us good prices and this is how they're rewarded.

Does this work in Currys Digital too ?

Sent someone in to PC World to collect one of these, floor staff point blank denied that they price matched and when a manager was sought it was agreed that they would do it only to later say they don't have it in stock.

(might I point out that the online checker states they do!)

Apparently all Sandisk products have been removed from the shelves on purpose!

Absolutely pathetic.


Sorry to hear that, though typical PC World attitude.
Sounds like a car audio company I used to use in Edinburgh, would try the old "out of stock" trick to avoid matching.

I can only advise that when trying this, to go into the store armed with a copy of the price match policy, locate the memory cards (if they haven't already removed them) and actually get your hands on the thing, then theres no chance of them saying they don't have stock. It just shouldn't be this hard to make use of a 100% genuine policy :x

I got a 4gb Micro SD from Play at Christmas for £17.99.

Unfortunately it was faulty.

I wanted to use it right away so I went to PC World on boxing day to get a replacement.

The same card was £74.99.

They wouldn't price match play because it didn't say on the PLAY description that it came with a reader - despite many reviews from PLAY customers saying it did.

So it was all around the PC at PC World for a quick browse, I found it at Amazon, they price matched Amzon at £17.50 (they didn't figure out it wasn't actually from Amazon so it should have been about £20 with P+P) - they wouldn't give me any more off but I was happy with that.

They then went and removed the rest of the 4gb cards from the shelves.

So I was pleased.

The best thing was, when I sent my faulty card back to PLAY, they sent me a 4gb stick for my PSP intread, which at the time, was £12 more expensive.

I was pleased all around.:-D

I reserved on online and went to pick it up this morning. Was given the patter about not having in stock so I said I had reserved and driven 20 miles to pick up and wouldn't be happy if they didn't have one. The assistant then said he would check the stock on the computer and strangely managed to find one in stock! They did price match though but had to remind him about the 10% difference.

I think you are missing the point - by using this policy we are punishing them for their high prices & doing what the advertising standards should be doing for their "internet prices on the high street" ad. I hope they sell dozens of products at below cost due to this deal post & many more like it!

Oh & another way to give a two digit guesture to their shoddy practice of not pricing things is to walk round & lift about a dozen unpriced items & take them to a till for prices - you never know, you may get a bargain & if not, it'll test the intelligence of the staff to put them back.
#27
Going to try it tomorrow on a 2GB XD card and a 2GB Memory Stick M2 that are both massively over prices on PC World. I have reserved both for collection at my local store so will be interesting what they say when I goto collect and use the price match card.
#28
Hands up, who annoyed the Corstorphine, Edinburgh PC World staff!!! ;-)

Just been in to see if I could pick up a couple of 4gb Micro SD's, and was greeted by 2 empty hangers for the 2gb Micro SD & 4gb Micro SD

I enquired about the cards, and some spotty teenager came from behind the "tech guys" counter and said, yeah we have some 2gb cards, but no 4gb.

My reply - "so the 2gb's are in stock? Why aren't they on the shelf?"
PC World Emplyee - "eeeeehhh? I dunno?"

I didn't bother buying the 2gb, as it's really the 4gb I was after. But it definitely seems as though the stores, after being asked to price match once, will go out of their way to clear shelves so as not to price match again, sad really.

I managed to get a 2GB XD card for £10.45 today.

PC World Price - £49.99
Play Price - £13.99
PC World Price with price match - £10.45

After a long discussion they eventually agreed the item on the play web site was the same the the item in store. First they offered me the price of £13.99 and I had to ask about the 110%. The assistant said he didn't know, but it was handy that there was a banner 10ft wide above the sales desk advertising the price match with the 10% extra! I was then told the 10% extra was for for local price matches not for web price matches, but after I presented the T&C's I printed from the PC world website he eventually agreed it was for everything. He still had to get the managers approval. I think it took 15 minutes in the end to get sorted!

The manager was most annoyed about having to sell the item for 1/5 of his normal price, but there was nothing he could do about it!

I did try and get a Sony Memory Stick M2, but he would't price match that as the one in store include a Memory stick pro converter, and the only on play didn't show that in the picture so he said it was a different product and wouldn't match it. I am sure the play one also include this, but as the picture didn't show it, he wouldn't do the deal.

I did exactly the same thing to get two £50 XD 2GB cards (type H and type M, so two different products) for £10.50, and they matched to Amazon MARKETPLACE! For anyone who doesn't know, that's the eBay like bit where anyone can sell stuff for a price they want to set. No trouble getting PC World to take this, especially as they had the big price match banners up all over the place. I'll definitely be using this for anything I need to get my hands on quickly in the future.

I just called PC World and they did the price match order for the Sandisk Memory Stick M2 with out any problems at all against the play.com price. They even added the extra 10% with out me having to ask. Much easier that having to discuss it was the manager in the local store!

Updated the original post, Play.com have further reduced their 2gb micro sd card to £7.99, making the price match with PC world even better :)

Pricematch price for a 2gb now stands at £6.81

I couldn't find the 4GB micro SD anywhere on the website, but they did have one in store. I went along armed with a print out of play.com, showing it for 12.99. They were shocked at the price difference and spent 5 minutes checking it out online. The play.com one didn't explicitly say it had the card adapter, but then it didn't explicitly say it didn't, so they gave in and let me have it for 12.99. Yes, I know, they didn't take the extra 10% off, but to be honest I don't really care as I saved a fortune, as I also bought:

Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000
In store price £119.99, they matched amazon.co.uk @ £80

TomTom One V3 Europe
In store price £129.99, they matched amazon.co.uk @ £114

TomTom One Case
In store price £19.99, they matched amazon (not even amazon, just an amazon seller) @ £10.40, ignoring the fact I would have to pay for delivery. This was so funny as I used my mobile at the checkout to look it up on amazon, then they matched it. They were not busy and didn't mind waiting........
