Do stores really match lower prices from competitors?
Some stores will take your word on small price differences. Some will call another store to confirm a price, but others won't. Of course, it has to be an everyday price and not a sale item to get the deal.
Here’s a list of the major retailers in Canada that currently price match, courtesy of the Simply Frugal site. Is it complete?
- London Drugs
- Real Canadian Superstore
- Sears Canada
- No Frills
- Canadian Tire
- Best Buy
- Future Shop
- Toys ‘R’ Us
- Home Depot
Another way to save money is to watch if an item you've purchased goes on sale shortly after buying it. Ask for a refund on the price difference and you just might get it.
