My mate went to PC world today and they price matched best buys £29.99 for Black ops (Derby Best buy) and took 99p off (they dont do price match plus anymore).

He got the PS3 copy but said 360 is the same price.

Proof in next post

BEST BUY STORE MUST BE WITHIN 30 MILES OF PC WORLD

Should change the title man, its pretty misleading as alot of people before reading were just gonna call up pc world and ask if they did it only to be told 'not within thirty miles'. Its great offer if ya can get it

receipt shows it clear as day. friend said they didnt even check with best buy, just issued the price promise.

Oh yea I'm not doubting it but it's dumb how some stores honour and others don't.
#11
spam imo, price match only worth a post if making a significant saving
eg when pcworld has thew item sitting at 3 times current prices and you manage to get it for half the cheap price.
otherwise everyone knows about pricematch if they want to save a few pence whilst dealing with the muppets of pcworld
#12
It's out of stock with Bestbuy now though so I doubt they will honour the price match. I think your mate got lucky.

It is a significant saving now because you can no longer buy the game on it's own for less than 35 quid anywhere online, including Best Buy's own site.

their site says that will pricematch any retail store within 30miles so they are required by law to do the pricematch. Its a shame there's only a few best buy stores at the moment though, none near me, they seem to be doing lots of great deals.
#15
Do you think this will come down much before xmas? I'm thinking of nipping down to PC World later and giving it a go, but i'll be asking for it for christmas otherwise
#16
Dont forget they will only price match against retailers that have stock, they'll often ring to check so dont bank on this working.

£29 Thank you very much.

The guy at Currys Cannock wasn't too impressed and said it was for local stores only.

Then BANG - pulled out a screen print of Currys price promise - stating that it's within a retail store within 30 miles.and BANG a mulitmap print showing that the Best Buy is 23 milles away.

Woohoo!

Well yeah, it's convenient if you wanted Halo Reach too, the hassle comes when you just want COD alone.

yeah I know what you're saying but always good to plan ahead were some other very recent releases as well though the new Fallout 3/Star Wars ect - added James bond as well now I think although not supposed to be very good
Just couldn't be bothered with the hassel of running around on the day of release - deal prob still on and I'm never that desperate to have the game on release day prob won't get chance to even start it till the weekend

I was in PC world two weeks ago trying to price-match, they asked for a print-out, I said I dont have one but just go on to the web-site to check "sorry sir company policy we cant surf the net!"

Bought this today for £29.99 at Best Buy Derby

I thought they only match it if it shows in stock for delivery...?
#34
Also, spend £50 at PC World, and get the game for £19.99 !! You can just go back and return the £50 worth of item(s)

That's the one that's showing nearest to me...27 miles! But how did they manage to get it? Did they just show them the distance? What about stock?

Not sure but there was nothing stated in the T&C's in the paper......might be worth checking instore.....for example when Argos do the £5 voucher with a £50 spend they always make it clear if you return the item you have to return/have the £5 knocked off your refund.
