    Default email quote vs walk in?

    asked for a email quote from CP, and replied with below words:
    In addition, please present this email IMMEDIATELY when you are served by our sales staff so that the above prices are accorded to you. Any purchase made for the quoted product(s) w/o this email, or prior to receiving this email, will render this quote invalid.

    so the walk in price will be higher or lower than the email quote?
    any further discount or free stuff possible in addition to the email quote?
    is it true that this email quote only valid for 7 days?

    kindly advice me if the topic has been dicussed before

    From my experience, walk in price is slightly higher than thru email.

    does the email clearly say that they will not entertain such thing so "will render this quote invalid"?
    how was their response to you when you did so?
    I am not good at neg price

    No difference. Exercise your consumer right, open your mouth and negotiate. Not happy, walk off and bring your business to another shop.

    how about this:
    step 1) walk in and ask for price.
    step 2) while testing the lens, take out handphone and call CP to ask for price of the same lens
    step 3) If price quoted on phone is lesser, make a lot of noise.
