Hey guys I am trying to get a good price on a 256GB SSD from my local computer shop and he said he will price match anything $270 and over if I have a receipt. I would prefer to buy SSD locally in case something goes wrong. If anyone could scan through a receip to by4x@hotmail.com it would be greatly appreciated

I have offered to show him amazon.com for example for prices but he wants an actual receipt :-(.

Why would a person trying to price match have a receipt? If you had the receipt, and you bought it at a lower price you wouldn't be asking him to price match so you could buy one. It doesn't make sense.

I call BS on OP. SSD can be bought for way less than $270. Why would anyone in there right mind pay more?
Maybe the OP isn't in the US? Also, last time I was at Fry's, they were selling the 256GB Samsung 830s for $299.99. :eek:

I call shenanigans!

Why would a retailer price match policy for something you're planning on buying from them require a receipt? That would mean you've already bought the thing and no longer need what that retailer is selling.

There are a couple of non-legitimate reasons for wanting someone's receipt, but I think it's a safe bet trying to get a lower price from a retailer is not one of them.

There is no point in buying from a local store when onine sites like newegg have excellent return policies and their prices are significantly cheaper. If you're worried about reliability, keep the hard drive you're replacing with the SSD and swap it in if there are problems.

Any store who makes their customers go through this much trouble does not deserve my business and should not gain yours.

A store that price matches only if you give them a receipt from another person's purchase? ********.

OP is either full of **** or that store is questionable at best.
