Case in point, bought Arkham City a couple of weeks ago. Was $39 on the website - $55 in store. Store was happy to match their online price - the ticket price didn't even scan in just went straight to the online price at the register.
I'm afraid you are incorrect, but only in this circumstance. Normally they would match online prices no problem, but this is a special promotion. The online business and the store business are run entirely seperate. To get the online offer pricing, it MUST be purchased online first, and then, when you get the confirmation email, you come into the store to collect it.
