The purpose of this thread is to have a consolidated place where bargain$hare users can go to quickly locate a store's low price guarantee or price match policy online. Click on the link to read the full detail. Whether or not a store follows its guarantee or policy is another matter beyond the scope of this thread.

Check for additional price guarantees posted at B&M stores and in the back of B&M receipts.

Amazon Pricing

Contact Amazon to get a refund if the price of an item you bought from them drops (current practice?).

Does not apply to products sold by third-party merchants and other sellers through the Amazon.com site.)

Newegg.com FAQs

  • The price of an item I purchased has dropped prior to shipment. Is it possible to get a refund of the difference?
    Newegg.com does not offer any price guarantee, because industry prices change too often and too fast. If your order has not shipped, you can cancel the order online and re-order to take advantage of the new prices. All prices are as posted at the time of purchase.
  • The advertised price of a product is significantly lower than it appears on the site. How can I purchase the product at the advertised price?
    Prices and availability of products are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected when and where discovered by Newegg, but Newegg reserves the right to refuse any order, revoke any published offer and correct any errors or inaccuracies, including those discovered subsequent to the submission of an order, and whether or not your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Newegg will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. Please note that the policies of your credit card issuer will determine when this amount is credited to your account. Newegg does not warrant or make any representation about the substance, quality, functionality, accuracy, fitness for a particular purpose, merchantability or any other representation about any third party site or its contents.

OfficeMax 115% Low Price Guarantee

If you find a lower price at any office product superstore, we'll give you 115% of the difference (up to $55.00). If you find a lower price at another retailer, in an OfficeMax store, OfficeMax catalog or at OfficeMax.com, we'll match the lower price instantly subject to the following conditions.

Office Depot Low Price Guarantee

How does Office Depot's 100% Low Price guarantee work?

The prices advertised in this catalog are available for phone, fax, and online orders only. If you find a lower price on a new, identical product at any other office product or consumer electronics supplier within 14 days of your Office Depot purchase, please call us at 1-800-GO-DEPOT (1-800-463-3768), and we will instantly match the price. Please remember to have the advertisement ready to fax or email when you call.

What is Staples' price–match policy?

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.
