i'm currently looking at buying a sony a200k dslr camera and dixons are doing it for 240 but pc world are 270+

so i was passing one and popped in to see if they would price match it seeing as they're both part of the same group.

me:- hiya mate i'm lookin at the sony dslr camera and was wondering if you price match the dixons website as they have it for £30 cheaper.

sales assistant - no we dont sorry.

me - oh ok...

SA - yeah alot of their stuff is refurbished whilst ours is guaranteed to be brand new.

me - but it says on the site that its brand new too so couldnt you do it?

SA - yeah they sometimes say that its brand new but it could've been a refurb or a return or something so we cant match them.

me - so they're selling refurb stuff as new?

SA - yeah they do that sometimes.

"Where in the world" do they find these sales people! Good haggling skills though. Did you just give up at the first hurdle?
#2
Wouldnt surprise me. PC world staff (although not all but certainly alot) just dont have a clue!
#3
So he not only accused a store of illegal things, it was a store part of his own stores group... says it all really..

Goon. lol

you won't see PC World/Tech Guys doing a Drive-Thru pc fix clinic, thats for sure

****!

I have tried that in the past too, but as dixons are now only an online retailer they wont price match,

Seems crazy as they used to price match Amazon until recently.

Their "Price Match - We wont be beaten on price' is VERY limited to;
Argos, Comet, Jessops, Tesco, John Lewis, Asda, B&Q, Game Gamestation, Halfords, HMV, Maplin, Staples, Toys R Us, Zavvi.

The RULE - If its available from PC World, Its most likely to be available on Amazon alot cheaper!

At last the truth is out!!!!!

Is it just me or does anyone else think that PC world sell very little by way of PC's or computer equipment these days? It's all TV's and stuff.
#9
thats coz they're getting ready to merge with currys

i just got back from my local store. i needed a PATA drive in a hurry. website had absolutely none in stock so i couldn't reserve, got into the store and they had loads of them. the manager said the website was wrong because they're restructuring it to match pixmania's
what a crock
#10
yeah i mean come on a dslr camera is hardly "PC"

they've really extended their 360 and wii stock too.
#11
and i'm tryin to email pc world to see if they might let me price match it instead of the mickey mouse i met up with

but they're not answering

probably they're all in that emergency board meeting.

Get it from Dixons and use the SALE25 voucher to get it for £234.40

what do you expect? no training is given. do you go into tescos and ask them a million questions on what food product to buy and how to use it? didnt think so.

im fed up of all this pc world 'bashing', most employees including myself are expected to know everything about everything. luckily i and most of the staff at my store do have a great knowledge in most of the products we sell, and for the peanuts we get paid we put up with a lot of ****.

have you ever thought to wonder why so many people want to bash pcw?
its because so many people have had terrible experiences there. i can honestly say that the 4 stores i've visited in my area are all terrible, i've yet to find a single member of staff there that has even a modicum of product knowledge, or the decency to show you the product you need and not the ones they need to sell. they're hated for good reason

Thing is, when I go to Tesco, I'm likely to ask no more probing a question than that of "Where do you keep the olives?", to which I'll receive a truthful answer, unlike at PC World where policy tends to be "Tell the customer anything as long as it sounds convincing, if they have to ask then they won't know any better anyway". And even if I do ask a shelf stacker advise on something, as I have done in the past (washing powder? non-bio, bio, colour, liquid, mler, etc, wtf? I had to find a woman who could explain it to me), if they fib to me and sell me the wrong thing, I've only been conned out of a fiver. Not £400, as with those "free" laptop deals you guys are pushing pretty hard.

People give you **** because people generally don't like liars. And that's what most PC World employees are. I'm not saying you are a liar, but, well, your company hasn't earned its reputation without reason.

As i said, don't you think its a bit unfair to generalise the whole chain on the account of the odd employee scattered around?

and lies? people know that if they want a free laptop, they're gonna be tied into a contract for 2 years and be paying £40 a month, there's no covering that up for the sake of a sale.. i think it would be pretty difficult 'lying' to the customer about that small £40 payment they 'wont' have to pay per month. i dunno which pc world you've been to mate, but thats total rubbish.

at the end of the day, you'll all have your opinions and that's fine. i don't care if you refuse to shop there or whatever, doesn't make a blind bit of difference to me. i just go to work everyday, do my job and get paid and that's all that matters, if you wanna come in, complain and have a go and make my job that little bit crapper, then that's your choice. just dont expect me to act polite and helpful when you've got a serious 'holier than thou' attitude, because its just not worth it.

If you have any PC knowledge then get a new job and join in with the bashing.:-D

I agree with the above, I think its totally unfair to pile all the critisism on PC world & Currys - I've had equally p1ss poor service from Comet :thumbsup:. I never learn though, I've lost count on how much petrol I've wasted going backward & forwards to save a few quid on a reserve & collect that was never there, although to be fair to Comet their system does seem to work sometimes :roll:

At the end of the day if everyone votes with their feet and cash, you won't have a job to go to every day, get paid, etc.

Have you noticed the economic climate recently? :roll:

This is why customer service is important for businesses to survive these days
