Price Match fail
You guys are right, Canada Computers does suck for price matching.

I was in Barrie this weekend and decided to visit the CC there as I have not been in for a while. So I was browsing and found this:

http://canadacomputers.com/product_info...._id=032819

Its a 27 inch Asus monitor with picture in picture along with displayport and HDMI, plus it has LED back lighting! I thought this would be the perfect replacement for my Samsung 24s, but I figured it could be less elsewhere... Sure enough I did managed to find it for 299.00 and attempted a price match with one of the store associates.

As usual they started the normal "shipping add on" scam which is bulls**t, what if I have free shipping or some sort of other offer? I'm getting sick of that excuse. Turns out the monitor was on sale as well (there was no sale tag listed on it) and they could go not one penny lower then the sale price because it would be "below cost" (also bulls**t or your supplier is ripping you off).

You guys need to step your price match game up and drop this policy nonsense, honestly **** is way ahead of you as far as I am concerned in customer service.

The price match policy is just no good.

RE: Price Match fail
I dont even bother asking for a price match. They wont do it so why waste your breath. Its like complaining you cant find an employee in Walmart.

RE: Price Match fail
Yea, not just at CC but other retailers as well, I could not be bothered doing this because it almost always never works, there is always some excuse ...

"wrong fliers, we don't match sale prices, only if the item is physically in stock, it can't be online only, yadda, yadda ... "

so there is never any point in it

I walked into bestbuy to buy my WD Live Plus and it was 10$ more, I told him how much it was at ****** and he said how about 20$ off then? 5 minutes later i was out the door.

RE: Price Match fail
N see eye X will price match all damn day even against there own sister store Direct Canada
Link them a CC ad and you can bet your ass they will beat the price, this is a sad day when CC wont honor there own policy or are looking for ways out of it. I've always found CC to be one of the cheapest places around but lately they seem to be jacking the prices
