Which store price matches better?

I printed the ad from the Meijer website showing Meet The Fockers at $12.99. Problem is, there are no Meijer stores where I live. Which store, if any, among Best Buy, Circuit City, or Walmart do you think would be more receptive to honoring this price? I am a newbie when it comes to price matching, never tried it at these stores.

Most local stores don't match online prices, only prices of nearby competitors in their local area.

I don't think you'll have any luck unless the store is local.

I like Circuit City. You get 10% of the difference between CC's and the competitor's price in addition to the PM, so it's my top choice.

Your best bet would be Walmart.

Best Buy also does 110% pricematching, and I've never had a problem getting this.

you gotta buy it first, then PM it at the customer service desk within 30 days. At the registers, they'll just give you a 100% PM.

I'd always have to go to the customer service desk anyways to PM because I don't ever actually have the ads. I always go first thing in the morning, pay full price at the register, and then walk over to customer service and get the 110% PM. There's never anyone in line at that time, so it doesn't take more than 30 seconds extra or so.

I have had the best experiences pricematching at Sears where they automatically give you the 110% differnce and they have never called the other store to see if the item is in stock. BestBuy is the WORST.

Does Target price match? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Target no longer pricematches, and if you even ask you'll get the evil eye of death from their associates.

Sometime (when I have more time) I'll post the story of how I had a long "conversation" with one of their associates and nearly their entire management team about their price matching policy/lack thereof.

Oh and the real kicker, it was on Black Friday and the line was stopped for nearly an hour.
