If you, or someone you know had to pop across the border for business/vacation ect. you could pick up BOB at a local Walmart for around $41 US according their website (cheaper than Amzn).

Hey, they have free shipping too. Maybe they'll ship it to the Island.

Nice. Right now, half of the new England States seem to be visiting us as tourists. Unfortunately, I know only a few people south of the border and I don't want to use up any favors just yet as the new Zune HD (touch screen, web browser, etc.) is slated for release in the US in Sept. but not tentatively until January for the rest of the world. I might need a delivery for that one. It looks very cool for those of us unwilling to pay the AppleTax.

Don't trust Walmart's prices. I've found many items to be significantly cheaper online, but when you go to the store, they either don't have the item (online they offer a lot more than what is in the stores) or if it is something that they have in the store, the store price is considerably more. I asked them several times about this and they say that they have different prices online vs. in-store, and they only "price match" competitors, not their own company. So if target.com had something cheaper, they would match it, but not their own web site.

"they only "price match" competitors, not their own company. "

That's hilarious. Did the clerk you were talking to look like the boss in Dilbert?

I might have beat Wallyworld at it's own game last night. I needed a gas can and it was close to the grocery store I dropped my wife into so (hating grocery getting) I also browsed the Home Entertainment section. A clerk was filling a shelf with older, $19.00 dollar BlueRays and I glanced in her box and saw a single Watchmen BD. I patiently waited for her to add it to the display and sure enough it had a $19.00 label.

After asking if all these BDs were $19.00 and she just looked at me as if I were too stupid to read the labels myself, I decided that her rudeness was enough to quash any guilt I had and headed for the checkout.

I remember going into our local Best Buy (few years ago)with an advertisement in hand from the Toronto Sun from Sam The Record Man(downtown TO) for a DVD on special, I think Sam's had it for around $25 where BB was wanting aroud $29. I walk up to the BB salesguy and ask him, "do you guys price match?"....."yes sir, we do, as long as the price is advertised and they have it in stock" \:\) ...."OK, Sam's is selling this DVD for less than you guys(I show him the advert) so do I just take this up to the cash and let them discount it?"....he takes a look at the advertisement..."No, we don't recognize Sams"....I look at him rather puzzled ..."What do you mean?"....he says "We don't price match with Sam's, we don't expect people to drive downtown from here".....I reply..."So what you are saying is you have SELECTIVE price matching, correct?"

I argued with this guy for a while, as well as another salesman, then more-a-less told them what their price matching policy was worth. I then went to Future Shop, which incidentally is OWNED by BB, explained the situation I had encountered at BB and the young lady who was head of the dep't couldn't figure out why they wouldn't match the price. I hand her the advertisement and she says "Let me call them to make sure they have stock"....she calls them and says to me "No problem, they have several, so we'll match the price." \:\)

Either these companies are going to price match or not, they can't say things like "We'll beat any price" if they're not going to do it.

Just to get a little historical here, the original "Sam The Record Man" was a landmark store right in downtown T.O. famous for it's huge neon record signs facing Yonge St. They had been around since the 1930's and had great prices on records, everyone in Ontario and most of Canada knew of this store and any visitors would have remembered it. The original Sams closed it's doors a couple of years ago \:\( , but there are still a couple of them around in other cities.

We had a Sams too long ago. It was there, Zellers or K-mart for music and that was pretty much it.

Music World went under. At least here it did. Pretty sure it went under as a whole but not sure.
