futureshop will not honour amazon.ca prices unless they include next day delivery for free with in the price. A compromise can be made were we will match the amazon.ca price but have factored in next day delivery. if no next day delivery is offered on the product we will not price match the product. you will unfortunatly have to pay the full price for the convenience of having it right away.

I pricematched Amazon at FS a few times back in the day, when I bought DVDs quite a bit. Sometimes even slipped a few Amazon.com prices under the radar.

This would be outlined in their PM policies, so I would suggest you look there first.

Good luck.

LOL on FS responses: Yes, No, check out the PM Policy (that counts as a maybe since they often don't follow it). Anyone see a problem with FS?

Walmart: good luck, not going to happen. I don't even think they have a computer that customer service can access to verify.
BB: see FS

Technically, they don't have to as per the FS guy and I would not expect them to.

Amazon delivers super fast.....usually 2 days within the GTA.....the sale is guaranteed. Seems silly not to order it from them unless you need it this weekend. Otherwise fork over the extra $5.

They won't mind doing it. You just got to know whether or not you have to pay for next day shipping because that's what they look for.

Just bumping an old thread as I was wondernig the same thing.

amazon.ca had the Otter Box Commuter for the S4 for $29.99. BB has it for $39.99. Went to BB, asked them to PM and they did it no questions asked after looking at the price on my phone.

For FS/BB, the policy is to add next day shipping to the cost. Though, a lot of CSR's may not know that or not care and will just PM it.

I've price matched Amazon.ca twice at FS for Otter Box cases without any issues. Shipping charges never even came up.

Does anyone know if this still holds? Does BestBuy still price match Amazon.CA?

Still holds. I do it all the time, most recently last week.

Considering they don't even follow their own PM policies it's a terrible place to start.
It'd be fine if they actually did follow them.

I got this price matched at the Best Buy in South Keys Ottawa - The Bundle + Battlefield. The manager had no issue with matching the deal after verifying it was in stock; however, he was a bit wishy-washy on the free shipping vs charging me the cost of the one day shipping delivery fee. In the end they just price matched with no added costs.
