    Idea's on how to get Curry's to give me Web Price Instore

    I was burgled and have been given a Curry's card loaded with the cost of replacing 2 tv's. The TV's I want to purchase are £50 cheaper on line (I would also have been able to use a discount code too if I was buying on line). Anyway, I called Curry's and I can't use the card to purchase on line on instore. What are the chances of getting them to price match the web price - has anyone been able to do this?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, but not available for TV's or at least that TV!

    could you get pc world to price match and use the voucher in there?

    I can use the card at either Curry's or PC World but they have the same deal online and I can't reserve and collect either. I am going to go in tomorrow and ask them give me the web price but I don't hold out much hope tbh.

    if you ring up pcworld cs im sure they will price match then give you a ref number or summut to take in.... i knw it all changed for there price match... but would be worth a go

    Currys pricematch there website, just ask and they will look on the instore system and match the price, dont mention you are using vouchers until you pay , its that simple.

    Yes, I would have thought so too. Good advice - don't mention vouchers in advance!

    thats ******** becuase they know you've got the card they've got you over a barrell.

    firstly try reserving the tv at a different store, if you cant then just go into any store ask dont look to overly eager, browse the tvs you want and look vaugly interested in the one you wanted, ask if theres any difference in the web price or see if they have that tv in comet (within 10 miles) and get them to match that.

    i'm bored, give me your location and tv model no. I'll do the rest for you

    go in and ask them to log in on their pc and to purchase them online using your card voucher.as you cant do this at home.or dont tell them you have a voucher code and see if they will do the online price match as they are not sure then wether you will take your business elsewhere where the price is cheaper and make sure you tell them that you are looking for 2 tvs not one in this climate they may see you right.anythings worth ago

    Thanks MinstrelMan

    It's the Panasonic TX-32lzd80 Instore price £599.99 web price £549.00

    The bummer is we had bought a TV on a Sunday in Feb from Curry's as a result of an insurance claim (Wii remote through tv screen on Christmas day ) and it was stolen on the following Thursday along with another TV. I have to say the insurance company have been great - paid out again stright away but I wish they had given us the cash instead of these insurance cards.

    Good point re the vouchers - my mouth does tend to run away with me sometimes so will keep that info unitl payment.

    Blimey some over complicated answers here, just go into the store and ask them to match the webprice, maybe easier to take a printout, it really is that simple, why are people making it so complicated LOL !

    I had the same card from my insurace company for currys/pc world and had a bit left so wanted to buy a digital camera. Currys wouldnt let me reserve it and pay with my insurance card instore and the same camera was in the shop for nearly 150quid more
    I may have just got some akward sales assistant though - good luck

    run in there with nothing on but a rain-coat, and threaten to cause a huge scene if they dont drop the price, try to catch a student if you can because they will agree the fastest

    ***Update***

    Curry's and PC World refused to price match their web prices. Will wait and see if they come down in price in store.

    Thanks for all your help.
