Not as policy, no. I have gotten them to, though. To have any chance, it has to be pretty much CompUSA B&M, mayyyyybe Staples.

Well, to the item I had in mind, was a CompUSA item that was $7 cheaper, and I needed two. I ended up going with something cheaper instead, so I exchanged and got the balance refunded.

It depends. They do not have an official policy about pricematching however they will pricematch if and only if the price they are matching to is NOT below their cost. They will factor in all Microcenter rebates involved. I am not sure if manufacturer rebates are factored in though. Some floor associates will tell you how much they get their stuff at cost if you simply ask them.

Well, it doesn't matter too much to me now, but it may matter to others...

Here's what I had in mind: $30 @ CompUSA, $37 @ Micro Center. How do y'all think MC would react?

In any case, I went with another product so I'm all set.
