Default NCIX.com price matching question.

I wanna price match the Asus Maximus II Formula. on NCIX.com it's priced at 363.24. the lowest price I could find was on Canada Computers which had it for 324.99. Now if I where to go to a US site such as newegg.com which has it for 269.99, can I convert it to CAN dollars and use that as a price match?

I believe they price match Canadian sites only. There's a disclaimer that comes up when your pricematched item is more than about 15% less than NCIX's.

SugarJ is correct, if we could PM US sites NCIX would be out of business.

hijacking the thread for a similar question about price matching:

I've ordered from NCIX before but never bothered to price-match because the difference I found between sites was so minimal. If I decide to get all my parts from NCIX and wish to price match a couple items to Canada Direct, how can I be sure that I will get the lower price? What if they refuse the price match, will they charge me their full price? or can I then choose to get those items form CD instead?

If you're talking about directcanada.com, they are part of the same group of companies. I've never had a price match denied. If they deny a price match, I think they give you an option to cancel the order. Read the conditions that pop up.

Yeah you can PM canadian dollars only. Check newegg canada, I PMed some stuff there a few days ago and saved $60.
