Price Match question - can you do it more than once?

With all the different price match policies out there at places like Circuit City, Best Buy, Sears, etc., are you only allowed to price match once? For instance, if I bought a TV at Sears and price matched at the time of purchase, then saw the same TV 2 weeks later advertised for an even lower price, could I go back and get it adjusted for a second time? And maybe even a third time if I saw another ad after that and it was still within the necessary 30 days of the original purchase?

Or is it all just a one-time thing? The policies I've read don't specify this point.

usually it depends on the policy. circuit city's for instance

I saw a game for 29.99 at best buy, so I bought in the ad and circuit city matched it plus took off another 10% of the difference. so i got it for around 28.99.

then about a week or so later, circuit city had a sale that had the same game for 9.99, so i matched it again since it was within 30 days and I got a refund.

circuit city has a policy where you can match yet again if you find the product is found clheaper even in their own store. its listed on the policies on their site.

Circuit City rocks.

I bought some Kingston RAM from them one week [they were offering a CC only rebate].

The following week, Best Buy had it on sale $9 cheaper. Took the reciept to CC, got the difference + 10%.

Two weeks after that, Office Max had it $7 cheaper than BB's price. Brought it to CC, got the difference +10%.

So, in addition to the manufacturer's rebate, I reduced the price by $16 AND got a CC only rebate.

in my book.

Oh, and I should add, it was HASSLE FREE. No phone calls to BB or Office Max to see if it was in stock. No calls to THIS manager who had to call THAT manager who calls THIS manager.

Walked in. Explained the situation. Got the difference. Walked out.
