If you have ever shopped at Best Buy, you know that they offer some of the best prices around. But what happens if you find a better deal on a product after buying it from Best Buy? Or if the price drops after you buy it? In this blog post, we will break down Best Buy’s price-matching policy and answer all of your questions!
Does Best Buy do price matching?
Yes, Best Buy does price match. They offer a low-price guarantee (LPG) on identical items that are currently available in the local market. If you find an item with a lower advertised price at another store within 15 days of your purchase, Best Buy will match the price and give you a refund for the difference.
What is price matching and how does it work at Best Buy?
Price matching is a process that allows shoppers to receive the same item at a lower price than what they originally paid. Best Buy will match the price of any identical item available in the local market if you find it advertised for less within 15 days of your purchase from Best Buy. To take advantage of this policy, you must bring in proof (like an advertisement or website listing of the item)
The types of items that are eligible for price matching
Before you go out and purchase that product, make sure it meets the qualifications.
- The product needs to be an exact match in terms of brand, model number, and color – not just similar!
- Best Buy only price matches new, in-stock, and available items. Generally, these include items like televisions, computers and tablets, cameras and camcorders, home theaters, car audio systems, and more.
- Some items are not eligible for price matching, such as items out of stock at the store or those that have been discounted through clearance sales.
How to request a price match from Best Buy?
You can request price matches both online and In-store.
Find a qualifying product that is immediately available as a new item from your favorite brand and make sure that both its model number AND color match up with our competitor’s offering; then simply connect via online chat or by phone to lock in the best possible price for your purchase.
You can also call 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289) for a BestBuy.com price match request.
