Frys will price match. I just left the store an hour ago with my $40 credit. You have to have a microcenter in your area though.

Maybe this will help, its their new policy: http://www.frys.com/onlineads/0001507075

I'm surprised that they didn't argue with you on that because it says in their policy that:
Quote:
Offer does not apply when price includes rebates, special program or educational discounts, bonuses, free offers, gift cards, rewards points redemptions, coupons, promo codes, bundled items or one-of-a-kind or limited-quantity offers.
And all those MicroCenter prices are special promotions.

It's local to me in the sense that there are a few in the state. Unfortunately, it's enough of a drive to not be worth going for most anything. So, online shipping's the only real option. Being able to just take something back to a store if it's defective would be nice, but not so much when it involves a two-hour trip.

I'd probably mind sales tax less if it didn't take away from that feeling of getting an amazing deal. Getting what I did for $300 was still great, but only paying $280 would have been even better. With other things, I don't mind so much.

Looks like my mobo is defective... but they don't have anymore in stock and I only have 30 days to return it so I really hope I don't get screwed.

In a case like that, I'd hope they'd do it even after the 30 days. It'd be pretty low to tell you that they're out of stock, then refuse later because the time's up.

Have you asked them if they'll let you trade for another motherboard of equal value? Or even pay a little extra to upgrade. Given the situation, it doesn't seem like it'd be that tough for them.

Well I contacted the store but it took me like 10 calls to get through to a person. Nobody at my store was answering the phone for some reason, the call would ring like ~20 times then disconnect me.

So I called the manager and he apologized for the situation and said that they would special reserve the first one off their next truck for me... still doesn't change the fact that I have to drive so long to get it, but it beats shipping it to ASUS and waiting weeks.

- All comparisons are based on the in-store cash register price or the in-store on-line final checkout price at the time of request, excluding any applicable sales tax. Price comparisons include the cost of shipping. On-line price and availability must be verified in store at time of purchase.

Note the in-store cash register price bullet. The program is not a special promotion it is available to all customers.

No way man +rep

The guy when I got my 2500k said they don't price match cpu's from MC. But they had 0 in stock anyways so I didn't fight it. I'm going to cruise down to fry sin the morning and see if I can get my 40 bucks.

I wonder if I can get a store credit or do they just put it back on the card.

I've had frys pricematch MC before, but it was a bit of a hassle. Since the local fry's to me is about 45min away from MC, and there is a fry's closer to MC, they told me that they are not a local competitor to MC.

If I were to be buying a motherboard and cpu, i'm sure it would be a lot easier, but since i went in only to buy the cpu they gave me a hard time.

OMG, forget what I wrote below, that policy looks awesome! I will try it out very soon!

Frys in Fremont says they no longer match MC since their return policies are not the same. That part is true, Frys has an awesome return policy. MC is not bad but Frys is the most liberal.

They used to price match MC for me.

Alegro, what Frys store price matched for you?
