Price Matching: Who does it?

posted by Swaggrabber 3 years ago

Many stores offering price matching which means they will match the price of any competitor store. This can be really helpful if you have store coupons to combine with a price match for a specific store or if the store advertising the sale is out of stock. The key is to know WHICH stores price match. Here is a list of stores and their policies.

Albertsons:

CompUSA’s Retail Store Low Price Guarantee.
We’ll match any local retail competitor’s advertised price on every technology product we sell, either at the time of purchase or within the following 21 days. Our low price commitment covers all new, factory sealed products of the same brand and model number that are available, and in stock, at any local retail store. Our commitment does not apply to Internet offers or any one-of-a-kind or other limited-quantity offers, discontinued or close out items, refurbished products, trade-in sales, or special financing.

How does Staples 110% price-match guarantee work?
If you find a lower price, anywhere else on a new identical item, just show us the lower price when you buy the item at Staples or within 14 days of your Staples purchase — and we’ll give you 110% of the difference.

Which items does Staples price match?
Almost everything we sell. The item must be identical, including model number, components and U.S. warranty. For wireless phones and other items with a service plan, the plan, provider, and other terms must be the same. The item must be in stock and available for purchase at that price from an authorized US reseller, whose authorization we reserve the right to verify.

Which items and services aren’t available for price-match?
We don’t match our store prices to those on other companies’ web sites. We don’t price match our third-party providers’ products and services (e.g., Sprint® service, tax preparation, payroll services, and custom printing), items sold on auction sites or at local or special events (e.g., grand opening, anniversary or liquidation sales). We don’t price match taxes and typographical errors.


Target:
Does price match, but there are several rules and exclusions. Click here to see rules & exclusions.

How does price matching work?
If you find an item in a competitor’s printed ad that is priced lower than it is at your Target store, we will match the price. The competitor’s ad must be local and current, and the product must be the identical item, brand name, quantity and model number. Target.com is excluded from our price matching policy. Competitor catalogs can also be ad matched as long as the catalog displays a valid date and meets all other qualifications.

What if I’ve already made the purchase at Target?No problem. Within seven days of purchase, bring your Target receipt and the competitor ‘s current printed ad. We will reimburse the savings to you.

What qualifies as proof of a competitor’s advertisement?
Please show us the entire printed advertisement. Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of competitive pricing.

What does ‘identical store item’ mean?The program covers items with the identical brand name, size, weight, quantity and model number of the item at Target stores. We reserve the right to verify a competitor’s advertised price and the availability of the product.

Can I use coupons when price matching?
A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target’s normal coupon policy. When the guests presents a coupon(s), these steps will be followed:

Manufacturer Coupons:
Manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.

Target Coupons:
Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price.

Combining both a Target and Manufacturer Coupons:
The Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.

Reminder: We accept one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item unless either coupon prohibits it.

Target does not ad match a competitors coupon-required offers.

What do you mean by local retail competitors?
This refers to retail stores located within the same market area as a particular Target store. Examples of a market area can be a city, a metropolitan area or a specific rural region.
