The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means: I'm constantly looking for the best holiday deals.
Besides looking for the best coupon, flipping through the latest catalog or waiting for that perfect sale, there is another key way to save during the Black Friday season: price matching.
Price matching doesn't just mean include one store matching another store's paper coupon; it can also include their online prices. I'm here to help you out.
As of Monday, October 28 the following retailers are price matching internet retailers:
Staples, Best Buy and Target. So far, these retailers have been, or recently changed their price matching policies to include online retailers, like Amazon.com. Plus this includes price matching their competitor’s store prices. Make sure you read and understand the store’s policy you want to price match before heading out.
There are many rules that apply and each retailer’s policy varies. Often times the retailer’s employees don’t know what the guidelines are for price matching. Make sure to do your research. With this holiday shopping season coming up, a lot of retailers are changing their price matching policies in order to be more competitive.
Wal-Mart has not made any changes to their current price match policy, but that may or may not be the case as the shopping season inches closer. As of this writing, they do not price match online retailers.
