The price-match guarantee is always honoured, in my experience, and takes maybe a minute to claim. Here's the link for the Canadian store:

For pampered chef stoneware, I wound up at you tube.
None of which fit in general or what to buy.
Here is a thread on B&N.
Barnes & Noble Redesigned Their Website: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=289665

Now here's some Amazon threads that pertain to nothing but Kindles.
Sick of Amazon Kindle books without Page Numbers: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=272392
Kindle in Motion ebook format: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=277375
Second Amazon Account: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=289269

B&N's website design is not a general topic. Amazon's page numbers are so very Kindle sepecific as no other device/reading software has anything to do with the page number files. Kindle in Motion also has nothing to do with anything outside of Amazon (Amazon tablets or reading apps). A thread about Amazon accounts is definitely 100% Amazon.

So how is this Kobo thread any less general? It's not.

To close out this thread...

1. The good news is that the Kobo price match works dependably for many people.

2. The bad news is that it did not work for me. I very much doubt the fault is on my side. Further it's very disappointing how none (none!) of my questions about why the it was rejected were answered. At no point did I get the slightest impression that the evidence I provided was engaged with in least. A very disappointing experience.

I can only hope for better luck next time.

Well now, there could be any number of reasons.
1. You sent the wrong link. (Possible but unlikely)
2. You sent the right link but by the time someone else clicked it, the price had gone back up)
3. Like they said they don't price match promotions.

I just hope you weren't out much extra money.

Personally I think they screwed up, period.

That is also possible.
So can I ask the price difference?

Well, in a final twist in the story. I sent a last reply saying that they could close the issue and that I would get on with my life. I added a sentence (or two) making it clear I was disappointed.

I get yet another note restating that I was wrong but failing to engage with any of the evidence I provided to the contrary.

Then two hour later I got a note from a supervisor, an apology, and the refund.
