According to one of the ads included with today's newspaper, Toys "R" Us is offering a $25 gift card for the purchase of Red Dead Redemption on Tuesday, May 18. Would this be a price match that Amamzon would consider making?

How does one go about informing Amazon of such things. Is an E-mail sufficient?

Just a note from Amazon Help on pricing:

Price Matching doesn't price-match with other retailers (including those who sell their items on our website). We do, however, consistently work toward maintaining competitive prices on everything we carry.

I have no quarrel with what you have written, Paul. Perhaps I didn't phrase my initial query in the best manner.

Let me clarify: With the new $25 offer from Toys "R" Us, the offer being made by Amazon is no longer the lowest price in the market, nor is it equal to the lowest price that will be available for this product on release day. Regardless of how Amazon applies their pricing policy as you have quoted it above, I think that it is useful for potential purchasers of this product to know just how "competitive" the Amazon price is (or is not, as the case may be). When presented with all relevant information, consumers can then make an informed decision.

I agree with you that it isnt the lowest price but in the eyes of amazon im almost 100% sure that the golden guns will be the $5 tack on. Wether that is worth the $5 is up to you but i doubt amazon will go any lower because of this. It is really the consumers preference.

I concur completely. Since I saw the ad this morning, I just thought that I'd post the information and pose the question. There are many things to consider when assessing "competitive" pricing, including special features, shipping costs, and sales tax. Amazon certainly has advantages in many of these areas, no doubt.

Thanks for letting us know. It does seem to be a better deal (the golden guns thing you can get later in the game anyway) but I haven't stepped foot in a toys r us in years, I buy lots of things on amazon regularly so probably money better spent here (and gift cards).

Don't forget Tax, shipping, time, gas, etc.

Amazon is giving a 5$ code for music downloads with this purchase so it added up to 25 in my mind!

Also you are getting Golden Guns pack which you won't get it when you buy from Toys'R'Us.

The Toys R Us gift card is crap. You have to purchase it between 10 and 2 today and sign up for their rewards program to get it. Way more trouble than it's worth...
