Wow, Sears price matched with this Online Store?

I was looking for a fridge and a stove, in GTA.

And I got to this website that my GF found, and the appliances were so cheap compared to retail stores.

So I picked these 2 items:
http://www.canadianappliancesource.ca/YGFE461LV.html
http://www.canadianappliancesource.ca/MBL1953WES.html

But because it's online purchase (though they have a showroom that's not open on Saturday), we were a bit reluctant to purchase from them.

So I gave it a try yesterday at the Sears of Square One, to price match. Surprisingly, after a long time, the salesman could do it.
Then you could see on the bill,
Price Match item 1: -460.00
Price Match Item 2: -640.00

I'd feel so bad for those who'd buy them at their original cost. Anyway, I asked the guy how come I don't get the extra 10% difference, and he told me that because it's not really a flyer and they dont' take online sites. Oh well, didn't wanna argue, since I was happy enough.

On top of that, using their Sears Card, i didn't' have to pay for the next few months, and i get a $10 free for applying to the card.

Anyway, that made my day. Less risky, save more.

I received the same deal for the YGFE461LV make sure you claim the $300 mail in rebate as well, it makes it a great deal.
