Most stores now offer a price match guarantee where they will give you the difference in price or offer you the same price should you find the item cheaper elsewhere. Most people don’t really take much notice of these offers unless buying a big or expensive item but it’s worth looking at everything you buy.
are just a few stores that operate a price match policy. Some only offer you a price match if you can find the item on the High Street and not online, whereas others offer price matching for items bought online.
Once you have read the small print and found out the terms of the price match, simply do a search online to see if you can find the item at a cheaper price, some price matches might not include items on sale by other retailers so be careful and take into account the delivery charges. Online websites such as Kelkoo are great as they will do the searching for you and give you customer feedback on the store’s service.
Some supermarkets give you a price match option or something similar, so checkout what is involved and how you go about claiming your money back.
Be careful though, as some places make it difficult for you to get the money back, so consider whether it’s worth it or not or whether to you have the time or inclination to do it.
Just remember every little helps especially when times are hard, getting a few pence or pounds back here and there will be extra money in your pocket that you hadn’t expected.
