Has Makro ever matched a price for you like eg from an online store?

Be careful with Game. They have a few tricks when it comes to matching. I have caught them:-
1. Calling the wrong shop.
2. Trying to insist to the other shop "it was a sale item wasn't it".
3. Saying he couldn't get though when he hadn't dialed properly.

This happened in Cape Town, so knowing the skelms that work here, it may not happen in other areas.

Talking of Makro they selling the Garmin Nuvi 310 for R2999.00 which is easily R1000.00 cheaper than anywhere else... So if anyone's in the market for 1, go get it...

Never had an issue with price matching at Game, even on expensive items. Makro don't do it, at least according to the local management.

They may not match online prices....

The only way you'll know is to go and ask them.

Usually they only match shops with a front door and the item must be in stock and not on sale or special.

Get n friend who owns a computer shop or simmilar...Tell him to mark like R3000 down on an item ( just for you...last one sold! ) and take the slip to Game/Macro ;) Unless they dont compare "Specials"?

I noticed a big sign in HiFi today guaranteeing 105% of the difference if you find the product cheaper elsewhere.
