Shopping for the Holidays? Tips from Dr. Z !

price match

More and more people are shopping online these days.

Stores like Best Buy and Target sometimes lose customers due to “showrooming.” Showrooming means people go to stores, write the price down and go home and order via Amazon or other sites that offer lower prices.

Dr. Z went to Best Buy yesterday to buy a printer after his 7-year old printer decided to rest. Best Buy offered this printer for $149.99. But Best Buy has a price match policy that they match anything that is lower on the internet. Amazon happened to offer the same printer for $120.00 and Dr. Z was able to get the same printer on the spot from Best Buy! This is because Best Buy has a price match policy.

As far as Dr. Z knows, the following retailers have a price match policy:

– Target
– Best Buy
– Staples
– Toys R US

Be aware that there are some exceptions–such as Black Friday which do not apply to price matching. They suggest that you go to the customer service desk to do this.

Walmart does not match online (internet) prices, only by advertisements from other stores, but not online prices.

When you compare–keep the following in mind:

– shipping costs
– sales tax (some online shipping does not add sales tax)

Dr. Z cares about your budget. Happy Shopping!
