So I bought my Gamecube for $199, 4 days before the $50 drop.

    So... I went back today..

    Me: Hello, I bought a Gamecube here last week, and the price dropped by 50 bucks. You do have some sort of price protection, right?
    Worker: Umm.. Ummmm.. I don't know what to do. Hold on.

    Worker 2 comes out of the back room.

    Worker2: Sir, we really can't do anything.
    Me: Really? I JUST bought it a few days ago.
    Worker2: Ummm..
    Me: The purchase is still within 7 days. What if I just return the system, get my refund, and buy it at the $150? I really don't wish to play games.
    Worker: Well, maybe we can call Gina.
    Worker2: I'll call now.
    Me: Please do so. I really appreciate it.

    He's on the phone for a minute

    Worker2: Ok, she said we can do it.
    Me: Great.

    :uh: All this work just to get $50

    Hey, $50 is $50!

    That's enough to get another game.

    That's not that much work. Those people just make minimum wage, you can't expect them to do things like, solve problems.

    Reminds me of people who call to get a room quote at a hotel, but don't make a reservation. Then they call a day or so later after the hotel manager raises his prices then they complain about it expecting to get the quoted rate even though they didn't book a room at that price...

    That's funny, VB. I bought my GC about 12 days before the drop, and I went back two nights ago to get the $50 refund. Absolutely no problems at all. :dunno:

    You're not talking about me, right? If so... Um no. It's the other way around. *IF* I made the reservation 2 weeks ago, I would have lost $300 - easily. The price is now cheaper. Don't ask me why or how though.

    I kinda want to buy GC, but I have a PS2 already. Would it be worth the $150 for the GC and like another $100 for 2 games (SSBM & RE) for it? Or should I just get a couple games for PS2 (NBA 2k2 & ??)?
