went in over the weekend to price match a asus n53 router vs CC for $4 cheaper. Apparently their price match policy is not a guarantee, but its a policy. And Apparently their cost is $56 so they couldnt approve the price match and needed to call head office (in BC) to ask permission (for a sale in Toronto).. lol joke of a company.

They're not the only store that does this but it is a little annoying to see. If the discount isn't at least 1-2% I say don't bother even doing it.

I've seen Amazon with sale prices higher than regular prices a handful of times. The "You Save" dollar and percentage were both negative.

the open box prices are a joke... they either keep the prices high all the time or clear them out at low prices during their warehouse sales... (which are a huge waste of time to endure through.)

Superstore does dumb stuff like this, even worse. Ie save 5 cents on an expensive item, with their bright yellow tags.

Savings Code 92028-1701. SAVE $1.00 off our regular price of $399.99 if you buy today! Special price ends soon. Limit 1 per customer.

$1.00 off? thats a earth shattering .0025% off lmao
Actually it's .25% off, but it is ridiculous. I've seen worse though... I think from Future Shop where you Save $0!
