    OK I got a 32GB Playbook to go with my 16GB
    How did I do it?....The big box stores will pricematch

    So Just print out the Telus page and then take it to your local
    Bestbuy, Futureshop, Staples, ect...I got mine @ London Drugs

    You guys must have been lucky ... the Future Shop I just went to would not price match as Telus is making it very clear that it is "while quantities last".

    I have cheated and removed that from the print out I made ... will try with this at another store (will try both FS and Staples) on the way home.

    Which location(s) have you tried? Have you tried Walmart?

    Someone in another thread said that Black's Photo in Canada has the 32gb PB for $149 as well, but they may also be sold out since this is such a great price.

    Not surprising, Telus owns Blacks

    I just tried 2 Future Shops and Best Buy. No luck at either. They are WELL aware that Telus is completly sold out. Oh well.

    Yeah this is a huge YMMV. Did you guys that managed to get the PM get the extra 10% of the difference discount?

    I did it a little differently. I bought a 32GB Playbook at Walmart this past Monday for $248. I took the Telus ad into the store and they price matched it

    hehe I've done that B4. If you know something is going on sale...buy it B4 the sale & then get the price match

    I got a 32GB at London Drugs...wanted 2 but they only had the 1.
    Then went to Walmart..They were sold out but they had 2 64GB ones left & sold it to me for $199.......The guy thought that Telus was selling their 64GBs for $199....who am I to disagree with the salesman

    I got a Telus dealer to print off the deal, and went to a Walmart and they price matched. So I picked up 2 more for my niece and nephew.

    I have been on Telus website and cannot find the playbook listed. It only has it as a coming promotion. I am accessing the site from the US. Can some post a link?
