Does EB Games Price Match??

hi all,

i just noticed in the loblaws and RCSS flyers for this week that they sell wwe smackdown vs raw 2009 for 49.99...

i currently have preordered this game at EB with 2 trade ins (50 dollars) and will pay the rest of the 9.99 when i get the game on sunday (they have the game but wont give to me till sunday).

anyone know if i go and show them the loblaws flyer will tehy just give me the game for 49.99 or will they not pricematch it?

They knocked $5 off a game for me after I had bought, when I went to Wal-mart across the street and noticed it was cheaper. I just took a picture of the price sticker with my camera phone and showed it to them.

I purchased the Xbox 360 Elite Holiday package at EB Games on November 1, 2008. I did ask then if they price matched and they said yes.

From this forum, I discovered that the same system was advertised at Walmart for approx $23. less. I printed out the Walmart flyer and brought the Xbox 360 back into EB Games (I called the Manager first) and got them to adjust my price. They price matched to Walmart without any hassles. If they refused to, I would simply ask for my money back and head straight to Walmart.

Usually if you are price matching after you have already bought it, you just need the receipt, not the whole system to be brought back in.

I wish. :lol: Would have been easier on me .. however the Store Manager requested that I bring the entire system in for the credit. Bit of a pain .. but I figured it was worth the hassle. :-0

10 or less = they PM without any problems.
>10 they generally refuse to PM because its "below cost"... at least that was my experience before i stopped buying from them (takes way too long on pre-orders ... by the time they get it, other stores probably started selling it 2 days ago).

EB Games in Ottawa (Bayshore Location) would not pricematch Orange Box for me to the 29.99 Best Buy price. Jackasses.
