    Not so much. Amazon isn't a "local competitor."

    Price match is for items that are on sale at a local store and we have to call a local store to make sure they actually have inventory available. It is a huge pain in the ass to process for a sales person. There is also the 30 day low price guarantee, that will protect you if you buy an item at Fry's and it goes on sale within 30 days, they cover 110% of the difference.

    Make sure you like the TV and will keep it. Otherwise, it might be easier returning it to Fry's than to Newegg.

    fry wont match new egg.... ONLY RETAIL STORES THAT ARENT MEMBERSHIP STORES like sams club costco ect
  7.  permalink
    new policy frys price matches every reputable online retailer. newegg, bestbuy, buy.com, amazon. we dont match used goods, like some of the stuff that pops on amazon; craigslist, ebay, or small mom and pop stores. only thing is if they charge for shipping we have to include that otherwise its a strait.
  8.  permalink
    oh and we also now match membership stores, IF its the same model number, which having experience with cosco they tend to change some numbers on the packaging of otherwise identical items

    Does the associate lose the commission on price matches?

    yup, even on a low price guarantee, salesman loses commission

    Does FRYS in-store honor the 110% pricematch to local competitors? I have a local/national store that has the exact Apple Macbook Pro listed at $999 (in stock), So Frys shouldn't have a problem pricematching the $999+the extra 10%, right? Thanks for the help!

    The 10% applies to the difference so in your example there is a price difference of $0.99 (I am assuming Fry's has the same laptop for $999.99) so 10% of that is 9.9 cents so you would get it for $998.90 at Fry's using the price match guaranty.

    I just saw a paper ad online for Frys. They are now saying they will match any internet price to boot. So, I can now get the same price with Frys...so it all boils down who I trust and would rather do business with, not the price. Frys fails again.

    But how easy is the price match. it's hard to get a sales associate to help if there's nothing in it for then.
  12.  permalink
    I'm a customer and like low prices as much as the next guy. Screwing an associate out of the commission sucks. If Fry's wants to adopt a price matching policy it should be a marketing decision. If Fry's thinks price matching will get them a higher profit at the end of the year, go for it. If not, don't. They shouldn't try to insure their decision by cutting commissions. I'd rather give my business to the store that will give me the low price up front. Stores with low price guarantees are just telling me that they aren't giving me their best price up front.
    Does the low price guarantee apply to food prices? Can I bring in a Denny's menu?
  13.  permalink
    Holy crap, there just isn't pleasing some people. And as a sales person I don't care about price matching. If someone has a printed paper in their hand, I just send them to the podium, DSIC will do the price match, not me and I move on.

    No Frys has the Apple compouter listed at $1199 Shown Here: http://www.frys.com/product/6238000?site=sa:Apple Computer Pod:Pod1
    My local/nationwide store has theirs listed at $999.

    In that case you would get it for $979 at Fry's.

    Does Frys price match with Micro Center? Micro Center is going to be selling the new Intel 2600k CPU for $279.99, but the ad says $369.99 with an instant $90 rebate. Frys computer has the same CPU listed at $319.99. Will Frys price match the $279.99 price, or will they ignore the "instant rebate" and consider the actual price $369.99. I'd rather buy it at Frys because Micro Center is a 45 minute drive and Frys is 5 minutes away.

    I DONT THINK THEY WOULD PRICE MATCH MICROCENTER, BUT CHECK IT OUT AND LET US KNOW.

    Well it was a dumb question, why wouldn't they price match with Microcenter?
  20.  permalink
    Price match MicroCenter? Probably depends on where you are. The best prices at MicroCenter are frequently limited to "store pickup only." I think the Fry's policy refers to matching a "local competitor." If you have a MicroCenter nearby, Fry's should match. If you don't have a local MicroCenter I'll bet Fry's won't match.

    We just started price matching with online retailers such as Newegg, so I don't see why not.

    It was a rhetorical question. Figured you'd be smart enough to figure that out. If Frys matches NewEggs price, but you have to pay tax....then it is not equal price. It's still higher.

    You're still required to pay sales tax on online purchases even if the merchant doesn't collect them from you. Contact your comptrollers office for the info.
  24.  permalink
    You also have to pay the "Delievered price" which includes shipping if there is any. Most of the time, newegg and amazon has free shipping. And yes we do match microcenter

    You should change yer nick from "Guest 38521" to "Guess 38521". I am required to pay NO SALES TAX on any purchase out of state. PERIOD. This includes NewEgg, one reason why I shop there alot...Tiger Direct having stores in my state, I would have to pay tax even if I ordered online....same with Frys online.

    Problem with policy like this is that each individual store/supervisor makeup its own rules to fit their need. For example I went in to price match a item that costs $70.00 at fry to internet store selling it for $40. Because of big price different, they told me they will be adding shipping charge ($5) what other store was charging to the cost of the item. So instead of paying $40 plus tax , I end up paying $40+$5 (shipping)+tax...under their so call price guarantee. Unless this is normal written policy...I have problem with this.

    "Consumers who live in a state that collects sales tax are technically required to pay the tax to the state even when an Internet retailer doesn't collect it. When consumers are required to pay tax directly to the state, it is referred to as "use" tax rather than sales tax."

    We do that in my store sometimes, so I guess it isn't just one store's policy. I honestly don't think any of this crap is codified.  
     
    And on the tax issue, no one would ever enforce you to send in sales tax for online purchases, although certain states do seem to want to tax incoming goods from out of state it seems, such as New York.

    I work in the computers section in las vegas. We will price match all internet prices quit being stupid guys maybe try calling and asking.

    Fuck taxes. This "use tax" sounds like the international European Union VAT (Value-Added Tax).

    You live in Texas right? In California when you punch in your zipcode on newegg, it automatically adds sales tax. So the sales tax thing is going to be different from store to store depending on the state. But this whole online price match thing isn't just some fad. This comes straight from Randy Fry and is apparently permanent. As far as saying "newegg won't charge me sales tax," it's your choice to pay the tax or wait for the delivery. The store doesn't make any money off of the tax so we won't match a taxless price.

    frys does match microcenter, however the item MUST be in stock and we can limit the quanity to 1. So you cant come i and buy all or cpus for their price when they have none. also, it is part of the policy that shipping and handeling be included, if it is there. ie if newegg has a, buy $50 over and no s/h then we dont add it. if amazon adds $1 for normal s/h then we do. we are price matching the final internet checkout price.

    I've been looking at P67 motherboards and noticed that Fry's pricing is within a few dollars of Newegg. Good job Fry's. Does the Fry's associate still get a commission on a price match?
