PC world price match

When they say 110% do they mean they will price the match you have found and then knock 10% of the difference off, or 10% off the price, sorry to sound dim - lol

so item found £700 elsewhere, and £800 at pc world, they would price match it to £700 and knock £10 off? or £80?

It's 10% of the difference hun, rather than of the total price

i.e. What you said above, you'd get for £690, rather than £620.

They will knock 10% of the difference off,the diff between 800 and 700 being 100,so they will knock £100 of then £10,so total of £110 discount off £800,you should pay £690. I did this on Saturday on a sony digital camera,it was instore at PC world for £179,found it at amazon for £131,think i paid £126,also did it with a memory card too. Make sure they price match the store/website that you have found the item cheaper!! Theres a link on the pc world website,price promise or summet,down left hand side of homepage!

Another question, as I don't want to start a new thread, how do you go about getting them to match in-store? I want some ink cartridges that are cheaper on ebuyer, so do I print out the pages from ebuyer, take them down to PC World and say "Hey, match these for me please".

Has anyone ever been turned down when asking them to price match?

Can you discuss price match with them in store or just the phone?

PC World Price Match is a bit of a con really. Just wasted a fivers worth of brum brum juice this afternoon trying to get them to honor a price match. You see, they try to wriggle out of it in the store like an insurance assessor! Making the phone call is a waste of time, after carefully making sure that you qualify i.e. No promo codes accepted and no sale items, basically its the RRP of the store that your matching against. And make sure that if it's Amazon that its sold by Amazon directly and not a third party. Really, if you don't do your homework they just scowl and refuse to budge.

Not so much Price Match as Price Catch!!!

They have also been told any shop within 10 miles of the store, that has it in stock, they will also match :thumbsup:
