    I just lay-buyed a Premium Pack Wii U this morning at EB Games for $428, with $50 paid. Tomorrow I am going into Big W to get their catalogue, which has the Premium Pack for only $358 to price match with my EB Games lay-buy. But I have a few concerns.

    I'm assuming that Big W price is only a temporary deal which might cause issues with EB, but EB's price matching policy states that they will price "match a product if the other store has the product in-stock and at the cheaper price at the time of the matching". So if I go into EB Games and ask for the price match, will they drop my lay-buy price down to only $358, that I can pay off at my own pace?

    I'm going to try anyway, but I think it would be a good idea to ask here first.

    I suggest you go to Harvey Norman for any price matching as they are great.
    I got them to google a price one time from a local game store.
    Just say no to their $50 extended warranty >.>

    So I went into EB today to do the pricematch, and they said that they would match Big W but only if I were to pick it up today.

    Of course, If it's on lay-by I evidently don't have the money to pay in full -_-

    So, no dice.

    Ok, so I have cancelled my lay-by at EB and instead went to Kmart, lay-by'd. I now have to pay $50 less.
