How to price match Microcenter.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Before I get into this, I have not done this personally and would love it if some of you guys try it. I have only seen this on the Community Sourced deals from Woot.com a few months ago and thought I would share it with you guys.

 

Guide was written by me.

 

So if you are like me, you have never seen a 'Microcenter' in your entire life, you've seen their amazing deals and have been like, "Man I wish I had one of those around here."

And if you live in a 1st-world country, you have a Bestbuy relatively close to you.

 

[THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK]

 

1. Go to Bestbuy with some sort of proof that (your purchase here) is cheaper at Microcenter.

 

2. Ask them to price match.

 

3. They will either accept with no care in the world or explain that there has to be a Microcenter within 25 miles from the Bestbuy.

 

4. (Option #1) Walk off happily with your ultra cheap item that they price matched. (Option #2) Act all upset and disappointed about how high the price is and that you wish there is a Microcenter near you (Yada yada) [Note: Get creative]

 

5. They will either say "Sorry chap, I don't make the rules." Or, "I guess it wouldn't be a big deal..."

 

6. Profit?

Another way to do it is to order online, pick any address that has its closest best buy within 25 miles of microcenter.

 

Then start customer chat, ask them to price match.  After they price match, change shipping address to your own home.

There's also a Best Buy nearby.  I wonder how they get any business. :lol:
