Currys Price Match... NOT!

Had to laugh, I went to Currys today as I've seen a TV I like, Sony KDL32S3000. Got good reviews etc... After hunting around online last night I found Dixons online have it for £479 + £10 off with a voucher code, so £469.

Anyway, thought I would pop into Currys, part of the same company, to see if they would match the deal. Bloody thing was £549 in store @ £150 off apparently! So I asked the assistant, he asks the manager, they check the Dixons price... "Well Sir we can do it for £529 sir", so I said why would I buy it from you for £60 more?, "oh, errrr... hang on...." Off he goes back to the manager... "Sir, we can give you a good deal at £499".

"Erm, thanks mate, but I think I'll go save myself the extra £40 and order it from another part of your company..."

I know their standard price match only covers local reatil stores but it's a bit silly. Anyway, their loss, bloody daft!

THEY NO LONGER MATCH DIXONS ANY MORE AS I FOUND OUT LAST WEEK
i saw the PHILIPS 42PFL7962 with ambi light and 1080p on the dixons website fo £1299.99
looked around online at comet,dabs and amazon etc...
all same price give or take a tenner
so found a voucher code on dixons which gave me
42AMBI (£380.00 OFF)
and then
AW20 (another £20 off)
so only costing £899.99
quidco gave me another £27 off
and if i had an egg credit card another £45 off
so went to currys in leicester fosse park
lookin around the lcd televisions
not long before a sales assistant collared me
"can i help you sir"
so asked him if they sold the above tv
took me straight to it with a price tag off £1299.99
so i asked him a bit about the lcd
then came the question
i said to him "do you price match dixons"
"no sorry sir" he said "not even worth asking my manager
cos i know what he will say, how much is it at dixons" he said
"£899" i replied
"thats a great price" he replied
went to ask him something else and he had gone
obviosly new he wasnt getting a sale fom me now
didnt think they would match it anyway
but just wanted see what the tv looked like in real life
picture quality etc...
so icould of paid £1299.99 from currys or
£838 from dixons with voucher codes, quidco and egg card
GUESS WHICH ONE I WENT FOR

i did get from dixons saving around £450.00
but dixons is online only now (web based)
so there is no stores
although there may be the odd one about in some cities and airports
but i do prefer to walk into a shop and walk out with it,
easier to return if its faulty and see the product in real life etc....

They price matched a 160GB iPod classic with Amazon.co.uk for me last month (£30 cheaper). I reckon it all depends who you get, and how polite you are... sometimes! ;-)
