How to make amazon pricematch?

sdpokey 59 19 May 18, 2011 at 10:28 AM Get Amazon Coupons
I know that amazon often pricematches against newegg.com, and living in california that is very helpful in avoiding ridiculous amounts of tax, but is there a way to nudge amazon into price matching if they haven't already done so?

e.g. EA-650 Green -- $65 on newegg [newegg.com]

EA-650 Green -- $91 on amazon [amazon.com].

Not sure why they chose this one product to not match on, but they seem to be unwilling to meet the price, is there a good method to pushing them into doing so? Thanks Smilie

Amazon doesn't price match anything but TV's. Newegg doesn't price match anything at all. Sorry.

I'm not asking to make newegg price match, I'm saying that Amazon pegs it's computer part prices to newegg very often. It doesn't do this officially, but it DEFINITELY does this unofficially (there have been many newegg slickdeals posted where amazon has followed price a day or so later as well as tons of their stock is matched dollar for dollar with newegg).

I'm merely asking if there is a good way to prompt specific unofficial price matchings.

On the Amazon product page scroll down to the "Product Details" and click on "Tell us about a lower price."

It definitely doesn't guarantee that they'll match, but it's your best chance.

Ah, perfect that's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. I know I can't guarantee that they update their price, but at least if I nudge them a little to match they might consider it. Thanks!
