[MC] Sandy bridge Combos - Live Again - Page 30

post #291 of 316
So I went in last night with a print out from MC's website for the 2500k. I even called first and the person on the phone said yes just bring some sort of ad.

The girl at returns went straight to the supervisor of the components section and I saw him shake his head no. I asked to speak with him and he gave me the line about the different return policies. I told him what does that have to do with anything we are talking about the price.

I then asked for his boss. He gave me the same line but when I argued that that is not a valid reason and isn't in the return policy. He had nothing to say but was pretty pissed. I told him to give me a store credit and I will gladly spend the money in their store. He mumbled something to the supervisor and stormed off not looking at me.

So they did it. Long story short I think that this is a line of bs that they came up with since MC has such good prices on their cpu's and they don't like to match them.

He told me if I did this I will not be able to return my chip because that is NC's policy, once its opened you can only exchange for same item.

I told him thats fine. I only have 1 week left to return anyways and I don't plan on it.

Long story short I was not taking no for an answer. This was in fountain valley, ca.

Don't get what? Thats their policy. They have it all over the ads now that they match even online stores. Its the principal. I'm not just some dumb consumer that will get fed a line of bs and walk away. Its well known that frys like to make it a big hassle doing price matches, go do some googling.

And yes I have know problem pissing people off if they try to screw me over.

$40 is $40. I made a big deal over like $10 at frys. Was trying to buy an open box mb marked for $74 but it rang up $79. The cashier said that she couldn't override it and that I would have to pay the $79, then go to returns so that they can credit me back the difference.

I told them that is ridiculous and there is no need for me to have to do that. I told the manager that she needs to find a way to make it work with out me having to go through the hassle. After a few minutes she came back with a label that scanned the correct price.

I agree. If they want me to spend my money there they should honor their own policies.

I placed my reservation on Friday night and at that time they still have plenty of 2500K and Asus P8P67 Pro in stock, it went through and got the confirmation email in the morning. Made a trip to Tustin and got the combo at discount price, even if they don't give me the discount I think I can still ask them to give it to me since I did ordered on the first day SB came out and they did cancel it, but I have no complaint so far since everything went well so it's all good.

Nice lightsout.

I'm honestly tired about their bureaucratic go abouts in stores, so I highly respect what you did.

Don't take crap from big business.

But...technically they shouldn't have given you the discount.

Read their policy as printed in the News Paper ads...
Microcenter had to be instock and and ready to ship their 2500K's, in this case they weren't.

But either way, nice deal!

Yeah the only reason Fry's had them in stock is because everybody and their brother bought them at MC first until they sold out.

No micro center did have them in stock. I bought the chip on release day but just got the price match saturday night. The mc site showed like 20+ in stock.

They were so pissed I don't even think they called lol.

Thank God because they never answer the damn phone.
