Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (XBOX 360) 79p with price promise

9
Found 26th Feb 2008
Today i managed to get Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter from Currys for 79p using their 110% price promise. In Comet they got the game for £2.99 and in CurrysI think it's £24.98. So with the price match plus the 10% of the difference u get it for 79p!
1 warning though. I tried reserving mine at my local comet store and then going in to currys with the reservation confirmation but they would'nt accept it as they said they don't price match online prices (which is total s**t). So i ended up going to comet, getting a print out of the price with the date and the comet stamp with the address on it as proof and taking that over to currys. Even that wasn't enough as they then had to phone over to comet to check.
I think I only had trouble because of the person that was serving me.
But after all the hassle that i had to go through i ended up with the lady that served me giving me GRAW 2 instead of GRAW which is fine by me
Let me know of your success...or failure. lol

i think it's only hassle if u get a really awkward member of staff. it's been discussed in other threads just how bad the staff can be in currys at times

Yep...Currys/Dixons/PC World staff are the retailing equivalent of burger flippers!

Well I tried something like this around a year ago for an MP3 Player.
I reserved the MP3 Player at my local currys and then I printed a copy of Amazon and Comet prices to get a price match.

When I arrived at the store I showed them the reservation and then when he brought it out I asked for an Amazon price match (thought it was worth a shot) he told me only local stores were allowed and he said he had different stores on his mobile phone.
I then told him I wanted a Comet price match.

He then made it look like he was looking for Comets number on his mobile and that he didn't have it.

I then told him that I did. He then started having a go at me telling me as I had reserved it I had agreed to pay the price on the confirmation page (which is utter ****).

I was so fed up I stormed out of the shop and since then I haven't returned.

This guy that was serving me was the manager and it just shows how terrible the service is in Currys

They make it difficult. Its not worth the hassle rapping with Curry's. P*** poor selection and hugely inflated prices even for years old stuff. And i don't think its market volatility thats killed Dixons share price recently, they are rubbish and investors are aware of this,.
