Do SCAN offer any kind of price match?

I am looking to buy several products (400+) in the next few days but many of them are significantly cheaper (15+) on Amazon. I have an SCAN account and would love to use them but if the prices are so much higher and nothing can be done then I will have to use Amazon.

Just thought I would ask first just in case...

Nope, consider returns / customer service / delivery when ordering your parts not just price.

I have to say I am not impressed with the lack of a reply. If nothing could be done to price match then fair enough but at least say something. Worst customer service I have received from SCAN.

Indeed. Never did get a reply.

I actually bought more things in the end and I ordered from the places that were the best deal for me. I did buy a few RAM, PSU and case from SCAN but they lost out on over 400 of other sales.

Most importantly though is that I used to hold SCAN in high esteem and now they are just another etailer. So I will not prefer to use them. A shame in my opinion really.

To save me starting another thread I've a few upcoming builds that I need to order parts from, is it worth asking for discount or just going straight to Amazon (cheaper on the majority of parts).

I see the prices of a few things have risen this past week

When I asked for discount on parts to help me make the Charity PC I'm building a better spec Scan weren't interested, Overclockers gave me some discount though so they ended up getting just under 1000 from that order.

tiger-moth has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
It's fair to point out that Amazon have a 20% advantage over the likes of Scan and overclockers because they're not paying taxes
They also received something in the order of 100m of public money to set up warehouses in Scotland
Companies like Scan and Overclockers have not been given these advantages - personally, I prefer to buy from those two companies (even if it costs a bit more) because of the better service/support/returns/delivery plus they deserve our support.
