RE: West Marine won't price match Boater's World?

I have several friends with port supply cards as well as a friend whose son works at the local WM.* However,*I worked in retail for many years, including some time at West Marine in their store operations division at corporate and I simply am not comfortable using other people's discounts.* So I pay retail.* But that doesn't mean I want to get ripped off by west marine's outrageous prices when they offer to price match.* thus my question about boaters world.

Not to sound holier than thou, as my friends with port supply cards are no more marine professionals than I am.* One of them didn't even know that he could use the card at west marine.* But I am weird like that.* just me. * If everyone played the port supply game there would be no more west marine.
