    has anyone tried making a fake webstore and putting in cheap prices - then going to another site and asking them for a price match?

    if there was a glasses store online (a very big and popular one), i could make a glasses store with similar products, but 30% cheaper. you think they'll match the price? :p

    I think they would match the price after they verified that the site was legit. I'm sure they would call in acting like a customer and ask questions to make sure the site was for real. Or they might call their suppliers up and ask how that site is able to offer such lower prices.

    But the bigger question is : would the savings of 30% be worth all the trouble needed to make the site?
