I talked to my local AE store and they said they could not price match Amazon on the Delrays. The SA said he might be able to if the Delrays were not currently on sale, but this fact left him unable to do anything. Too bad. I wanted to give AE my business, but I'm not going to pay $275 for Delrays when I can get them shipped to my door for $199.
The Delrays are $250 actually
I suppose it is just a personal choice, but i receive excellent service from my SA's at my local store, so i shop with them.
Plenty of times, i have received discounts on shoes when there was no sale, aside from getting freebies from time to time.
