MediaMarkt - Searching their web site??!!

Hello all,

Can somebody please tell me how to search MediaMarkt's web site for a particular product (television)? I can't see any fields where I can enter a search. If I use the drop-down menu to choose what I think is the appropriate link, I'm only taken to a page which shows what seems to be weekly "specials". I need to search through their entire offering. Am I missing something very obvious or, does Mediamarkt not provide a search function?

They don't have their prices listed I believe, as the stores can and do act independently from each other (I think MM stores are franchises, right?)..

Media Markt has only the weekly specials on the website and not the entire assortment. I don't know why that is though.

They don't.
They want you to visit the shop in-person and pester one of the clueless sales-droids there.

I think (at least in Germany) their organizational structure is even one level below "franchise".
It's a structure that has proven its suitability to fend-off law-suits against the whole group quite effectively - AFAIK.
People need to sue individual Media-Markt franchises in separate law-suits...

Re: MediaMarkt - Searching their web site??!!

Thanks, everybody.

What a bizarre way of marketing! Had they actually posted all of their goods, they would have received at least CHF 1000 from me last week.

Another unfortunate result of this stupid policy is that last Friday afternoon I paid CHF 400 too much for the same television over at Interdiscount ! Guess I had better learn to shop on foot in Switzerland rather than on line . Then again, I suppose that's what the MediaMarkt guys want so that I'd be enticed to buy lots of cheap yet high margin trinkets on my way through their check-out line . Hmm... not a bad short term policy after all. In the long term, however, I'll forever have a bad taste in my mouth whenever dealing with them (although not as horrid as the taste of Interdiscount!).

Re: MediaMarkt - Searching their web site??!!

www.toppreise.ch is your friend. There's always someone else selling for as low as MediaMarkt. You can always call up a MM and ask for the price anyway. I don't think prices vary by location, given that they share the same computer system.

Easily explained and not bizarre at all: MediaMarkt is by far not as cheap as their advertisement makes you believe - they cannot as the big shops with the huge product range costs more than some garage guys' webshop. So they obviously do not want transparency...

The chance that somebody would find a more expensive shop online is relatively limited. Only interdiscount and Fust are possibly more expensive. If they'd list their prices, people would by more at digitec and other discount shops... instead of walking into MediaMarkt and buy something there.
