    A couple of days ago i mailed Unbeatable.co.uk concerning an A/V amp i found cheaper elsewhere on the net, i was wondering if they would price match...here's the reply i just got.

    Dear Customer
    This we will look at a 10% price match of the difference if it is carried in stock and of UK spec and not a grey import.


    Does this meen that they will price match then knock 10% off...confused?

    Thanks for any help! ;)

    BTW sorry if i posted in wrong forum.

    *&%$ knows

    Firstly did the other retailer actually have stock?

    Secondly does that UK dealer source from the UK?

    Did unbeatable say you had to provide proof?

    Why not just buy it from the cheap guy?

    Regards

    Dave

    I experienced a price match anomolie when I was looking for a Sony 940.
    Richer Sounds 399.99 Severn Oaks Sound & Vision 379.00.
    The nearest shop was a Sony Centre so I gave them a call. After speaking to a young lad (Read trainee, stock phrase "hold on I need to ask my Manager") I was told they will not price match either shop. I couldn't be arsed to argue so went to SOS&V and got a silver unit for 379.00. Surely this goes against some law or other. I did not see any small print stating "We will price match any store in the area, oh, except the two largest High Street retailers in the UK!!!" :p :p :p

    Price matching is a must, if you are not shown to price match then people wont even go to the store.
    personally i would never buy from a mail order ,because you dont get the service and also it could be some tom,dick and harry in a shed taking orders with grey imported stock which isnt uk speck

    Check out www.empiredirect.co.uk for bargains. All UK stock, cheap as chips, fast delivery and great service. Got my 940 cheaper than anywhere else and only had to wait a few days.
