ordered the blue one. Thinking about it now, the black one would definitely suit my bike more. Era, im not that pushed on it anyway. Worst case scenario, I can colour it in with permanent marker or something

Delighted to have it one the way though. I upload all my spins to runkeeper, so it'll be nice not to have to take my iPhone out with me. Peace of mind should i ever come off the bike.

Aw man! I asked about getting the black but was advised that they'd only price match on the Blue/White. If anyone is about to order and doesn't have a preference (or prefers the blue/white) and is down my way (Cork) would you mind getting the black and doing a swapsies

Are your DUNS being put through some sort of delay pedal there or was there just a lot of natural reverb in the room when they were being recorded?

I will agree though that the OP's original DOOOONNN just doesn't sound right to my ears...
I hadn't put a whole load of thought into it but you're stuck with it now b1tches

no price promise for me

god loves a trier

they just would not match the price promise. They kept saying best buy is not an authorized dealer of garmin despite there being no offical list of UK dealers available. So that argument is fairly invalid.

The fact a few people were already matched didnt swing it for me and they used an excuse that Best Buy is a catalog store and they do not match catalog stores etc etc.

So i told them to evaluate their terms and conditions and state that catalog stores are not supported.

i think you lot that got the deal are very lucky

I just have to wait for my buddy to pick one up in best buy and send it over

Ring them up and whilst talking to the sales assistant email him this link from Garmin's own website. They can't throw the 'Authorised Dealer' crap at you then. After this works chance your arm at getting a discount code for the Black one and do a swapsie with me

It might also be worth your while to visit fatcheese to see if this is still going

It'd cover the cost of postage for send that lovely Black Garmin to me

Btw, I dropped a couple of very subtle hints in there.

no price promise for me either on the Garmin from Evans,

Unfortunately we have been unable to match the price of £99.97 on the Garmin Edge 500 GPS Enabled Computer at http://www.bestbuy.co.uk/product/100...sku=1000114326.

The reason(s) for this are:

Unfortunately the competitor does not have the GPS available for purchase, they are showing that is not available for home delivery and they do not seem to have stock of this in their stores. Please note for us to price match, products must be in stock with us and the competitor.

I have mailed Bestbuy to confirm that they have stock and will be calling Evans.

Seems there are different reasons for rejection.

Another successful price match on the Garmin Edge 500 thanks! I said I found it on a Garmin authorised dealer's webpage, then said Best Buy so there was no issues over that. Then the only thing was with regard to the delivery/collection, I said it was available for immediate collection. Then he said, but not available for delivery or collection, to which I said that it says in the terms of their price match policy that it only has to be delivery or collection and my price match was accepted. £99.97 and I managed to get the black one of them too, happy days thanks in advance guys. Now on the lookout for heart rate and cadence upgrades!!

If they're making up excuses as they go along you can always mutter about complaining to the ASA

+1, only way is to ring them. I had 2 price match requests rejected online, 2 follow up emails which weren't responded to. On the phone seems to work, and I could hear another Evans phone operator in the background saying, the total of your order will be £99.97 so I wasn't the only one getting a price match!!
