Popular Electronic Stores Price Adjustment Policies

While retailers vary in their Price Adjustment Policies (some use purchase date, while others use the date your package was received), please be aware that many retailers and specifically many of the high-end retailers and department stores will price adjust past the policy, and/or do it multiple times if the price keeps dropping. All you need to do is just ask and you will be surprised how easy it is to get a price adjustment. You have nothing to lose but lots of money to gain back!

So how easy or practical is it to constantly follow-up online or in store on an item for 10, 14, 30, or more days and try to catch that price drop? If you go and track a price on a recent online purchase over the next 30 days you will see that it is not an easy task, especially if you shop online often and buy multiple items at a time. For your online purchases you can use a free and unique service from Yairoo.com. All a shopper has to do is just forward their online receipts to receipts@yairoo.com and the service will track your purchases and alert you to price drops so you can get a price adjustment. Once you receive an alert all you have to do is follow-up with the retailer to get you price adjustment.

This blog will continue to help you navigate through the price adjustment process. To help you with this task we have included the following list of Price Adjustment Policies from some of the most popular online retailers in US. Please be aware that retailers may have different online purchase price adjustment policies from their in-store price adjustment policies. These policies are for online retailer sites and are current as of 8-7-11 as stated on the retailers sites, but you are strongly encouraged to check with each retailer to ensure that their Price Adjustment Policy has not changed.

Staples

Staples Price Adjustment Policy – 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 and we will match the price, or within 14 days of your Staples purchase and we will give you the difference. If you find a lower price in one of our stores, catalogs or on staples.com®, we’ll gladly match the lower price. If an item is marked “clearance,” the clearance price is only valid for an in–stock product that is marked at that clearance price. (In our experience the Staples price adjustment and returns policy is great. There is really no time period for returns other than for Furniture and Technology and Business Machines which may only be returned within 14 days of the date of receipt.

Popular High-End Department Stores Price Adjustment Policies

The Price Adjustment, sometimes referred to as Sale Adjustment or Promotion Adjustment, is a little known and utilized shopping strategy that can really put a lot of money back into your pocket. Unlike Return Policies, Price Adjustment Policies empower you to get a price difference for items that you already purchased and used when a retailer drops the price on those items within a specified time frame and if you still have a receipt. Retailers do this to generate customer loyalty and create good will, but it is up to the customer to follow-up and find out when the price drops.

So how easy or practical is it to constantly follow-up online or in store on an item for 10, 14, 30, or more days and try to catch that price drop? If you go and track a price on a recent online purchase over the next 30 days you will see that it is not an easy task, especially if you shop online often and buy multiple items at a time.
