How to get Dell Canada to Price Match Dell US?

I would like to purchase a Dell/Alienware Monitor priced at 499$ - 100$ instant savings = 399$ on the us site.

The same monitor is currently priced for 559$ + tax on Dell's Canadian site..

Is there anyway i can get Dell Canada to Price Match Dell US?

I have been told this monitor was selling for 389$ + tax just a week ago on the Dell's Canadian site..

EDIT: model is AW2310

Don't be daft! That would require effort on his part. They expect people to hand them the answers, these days.

Only way is phone and ask... you might need to try a few rep since different rep will respond differently. They can match past sales if they want but you need a rep willing to do it.

They won't price match outside of Canada.

The only thing you can "POSSIBLY" do is order from the US site and then have it delivered at a pick up spot like UPS in the US close to the border.

Aside from that, you are SOL. Dell Canada and Dell USA are 2 different companies in 2 different countries. Ppl need to remember that a price match can only be done between 2 Canadian based companies. You can't really go and do a PM in Canada with a price based out of China, it simply won't work and that's basically what you are trying to do.

Reading the title I thought the OP had a devious plan to get Dell to PM their American bosses. Because it would have to be just that, a devious plan, because they won't do it.
