Many stores are now offering “price match” or “lowest price guarantees”. Don’t be shy about using these store policies to your advantage. Major office supply (Staples, Office Depot) and electronics (Best Buy, Fry’s) stores also allow price matching with online sites, particularly Amazon.com.
Most recently, I was able to use Amazon.com to price match on purchases from Staples and Best Buy. I prefer to purchase locally, as I’m able to (1) pick up my item on the same day (or get free next day delivery if the item is not available in stores, as is the case with Staples) and (2) accumulate rewards points on my loyalty cards from these retailers.
Be sure to check out each store’s website for details on their price matching policies. Every dollar counts!
