What is this madness? Did I really just purchase a WoW expansion?!? Well yes, yes I did! I've been talking with a few guys at work who are into playing WoW. I've held off getting back into it... lack of time, lack of interest, etc. I did get a month or two awhile back, but got my characters to 85, didn't buy Mists, and quit.
Anyways... one of my biggest reasons for not getting it was because I didn't want to pay $40 for Mists + $15 for the first month. $55 for a month of game time just... isn't appealing, especially since I'm not sure I'll stick with it.
So I heard a rumor that the game price was down to $20 on the official site. Unfortunately it had expired, so I looked elsewhere. Walmart.com had it listed for $20. Wooohooo! I ran off to my local Walmart to pick it up.
And then I had another 'We don't price match our online store' fiasco. Yet again, it was suggested to order it for in store pickup. So I ordered it on my phone, walked around the store for 45 minutes waiting to get the confirmation that it was 'ready to pick up at your local store!' walked right back to the person that said they didn't price match, got my game and left.
Got home and went to enter my game code and saw I get a 10 day free trial to Mists, so I'm doing that now. When my 10 days are up, I'll enter the code and go buy game time.
I really don't understand the no price match but in store pickup. Foolish.
