$50 for the 4 amp-hour starter kit would be worth it, especially since you should get the LSA if it's a kit.

You can get 4ah Ridgid-compatible clone batteries from Amazon.com for US$40, but that's about the cheapest regular price.

Of course in their usual demented pricing scheme Amazon.ca offers the Ridgid 4ah battery for $794!

I asked if they would match the Calgary price but the cashier wouldn't. I didn't push it any further. Is there an official policy about HD matching other stores? Any other RFDers experience anything trying to match other stores?

I've been told several times by managers that they don't Price Match other HD stores. Of course they can make exceptions if you sweet-talk them.

I've also had them do price adjustments well past the 30-day limit when I have a few hundred dollars worth of other stuff in my buggy.

I've PM'd against other HD stores several times. What you typically can't do is PM in-store clearance prices at another HD store which is outside your immediate geographic area.

The basic justification for the pm is that if another store in your area has it at a lower price, you can return the item you bought to your HD store for a full refund (as long as it's within 30 days) and then go to the other store any buy theirs. Since HD stores can check the clearance prices at other stores in their computer, they can easily verify the price. So of course they'll price match in those circumstances.

Where it gets harder to justify is if the other store has no stock left at that price, or if it's outside your area so that they know you can't go there. Sometimes they'll still do it. Sometimes not. It's at the manager's discretion. Be nice and make it clear that you're a frequent customer who will just end up spending the money you save on this item to buy something else at the store. That may help tilt discretion in your favour. Last time I did a pm against another HD store, all I had was a photo from RFD of the item at a lower price on the shelf of the other store. Their computer was running really slow that day, and they were having trouble looking up the price at the other store, but in the meantime I chatted with the manager about the other power tool I wanted to buy that day, partly using the savings on this PM. When they couldn't get the computer to cooperate, he just shrugged and accepted the photo as proof enough, and gave me the 75% off pm.
