Gamestation not price matching HMV £110 Elite trade in

Ok, just called HMV to confirm the £110 deal is still on, they said yes, until 30th. However they don't have any new consoles in stock.

So, thinking of the Gamestation trade in price match i called my closest branch to see if they had stock, which they do. I then asked if they would match the £110 HMV price, they said they have been told by the head office not to price match with the HMV deal.

So i then called the customer services, who said they would not price match as the local HMV do not have any new consoles in stock. This surely shouldn't have any bearing on the price match, as they would be matching my elite, not the new console.

I have also seen that some people have had it price matched, any ideas to get them to change their mind, or is it a lost cause and hope HMV get them in stock by 30th July?

They dont need to price match as there is no stock for them to price match against. Thats why others have had theres matched and why you havent.

So my bet is to just keep fingers crossed HMV get stock.

You could always ask HMV for a 'raincheck' on the price for when they get stock. Quite a few places will do this.
If not, you have to question whether the price is real or only for when there is no stock around.

It is the trade in they are to match, not the product been sold as they are the same price anyway

i could get the credit put on a gift card until they get stock, so if they don't have any by the 30th, i will most likely do that, however, i would like to have my elite to play on until i can get the new one, as my second xbox is upstairs in my daughters room, so i don't want to use that 1

thanks for the replys though

gamestation are rip off merhcants anywho, they are selling a pre-owned Tony Hawk's Ride for £49.99 when the HMV across the street is selling it at £29.99 brand new and refused to make me an offer.......................lol no brainer then.........idiots

I just traded mine at HMV Manchester (Market street), no other store would price match. Went in last night and the guy told me that numbers where trickling out, they received 14 today (Arndale is expecting delivery on Monday) but they did say that they will accept the trade in and give you a gift card for £110 (with an Elite 120gb) so you can still get the deal as soon as a machine turns up.

How r they idiots??? Pre-owned priceding is surely based on trade in prices... if it got traded in for aound £30 why would they sell it at a possible loss? think it!
