All Canadian Retailer Price Matching Policies

allcanadianretailerpricematchingpolicies.jpgPrice matching is a great way to save money, allowing you to get the lowest price without having to drive to every store to get the best sales.

Even better, many stores will actually beat the competitor's prices so you aren't only saving time and money on gas, the overall cost of the stuff you buy is even less than the combined sale prices of the items you bought. Throw in a few coupons, and you have a steal of a deal on your hands!

However, price matching can be a somewhat arduous affair if you aren't well prepared in advance. One way to prepare is to arm yourself with the price matching policies of every store you shop at so that you can make sure your price match isn't being denied unfairly.

Below you find just that, a collection of all the price match policies we could find for Canadian stores all in one place!

Lowest Price Guarantee FAQ

When can I ask Best Buy to beat a price?

There are three distinct cases where Best Buy will beat a price:

  • If you find a lower price at another valid retailer before you make your purchase at Bestbuy.ca or in a Best Buy retail store
  • if you find a lower price at another valid retailer within 30 days of making your purchase
  • if Best Buy's price on an item is reduced within 30 days of your purchase

Does the Lowest Price Guarantee apply to the prices of Internet and in-store retailers?

Definitely! If we don't already offer the lowest price on the items you want, we'll beat any price in a retail store or online. There are a few things to note:

  • The item must be sold by an authorized dealer located in Canada. For online competitors, the product must be located in Canada.
  • The item must be of the same brand and model as what we have in-store or online.
  • The item must be sold in Canadian dollars.

How do I show proof of the price difference?

Please visit us in-store or call us at 1-866-BEST-BUY (237-8289) and tell us which competitor is offering the lower price, what the price is, and where they are offering it. Our Product Specialists will verify the price and that the item is in stock and available for immediate sale and delivery to you.

How do I get the lower price for my item?

If you're shopping online at BestBuy.ca:

  • Before you make your purchase, give us a call at 1-866-BEST-BUY (237-8289) and we will verify the lower price and help you get the price match plus 10% of the price difference for your item.
  • If you've already made your purchase, give us a call at 1-866-BEST-BUY (237-8289) within 30 days and we will verify the lower price and help you get the price difference refunded back to you.

If you're shopping in a Best Buy store:

  • Before you make a purchase, let one of our friendly Product Specialists know about the lower price, and they will verify that price and that the item is in stock and available for immediate sale.
  • If you've already made your purchase, visit one of our stores within 30 days and a Product Specialist will verify the price and help you get the price difference refunded back to you. Please be sure to bring your invoice or sales receipt with you.

How do Shipping and Environmental Handling Fees affect my price?

Shipping charges and Environmental Handling Fees (EHFs) are included when we determine the final price used under the Lowest Price Guarantee. For example, if a competitor's price is listed as $10 cheaper than our price, but then charges $25 for shipping while we charge no fee, the competitor's price would end up being higher than ours and so would not be elligible for a price beat.

Does your guarantee apply to purchases made using the Reserve and Pick Up option?

Yes! If you order an item at BestBuy.ca and the item is offered at a lower price in the Best Buy store when you pick it up, you will automatically pay the in-store lower price.

How does your guarantee apply to pre-orders and backorders?

If the price of your item drops at the time of shipment, you will automatically pay the lower price. Your credit card will not be charged until the time of your product's shipment.

Does your guarantee apply to scheduled delivery items from BestBuy.ca?

Yes it does. If the price of your product drops any time on BestBuy.ca or in-store before its scheduled delivery date, we will refund the difference to you, including tax. To receive the lower price, please call us at 1-866-BEST-BUY (237-8289). If you see a lower price from one of our competitors, all conditions of our Lowest Price Guarantee will apply to your scheduled delivery item.

What happens if the competitor doesn't have the item I want in stock or has limited quantities of the product?

Retailers sometimes advertise a product as having limited quantities in stock. Unfortunately, if the item is out of stock or a competitor has advertised limited quantities of an item, it is not eligible for our Lowest Price Guarantee. Likewise, if we sell a product that is advertised as being in limited quantity, it will not be eligible for any price matching.

Will you price match "free gift with purchase" offers?

Unfortunately, we do not price match any free gift with purchase orders.

NCIX - Advanced Store Price Match

ASPM is for IN-STORE price matches only. For Web price matches please proceed to shopping cart. Shop with confidence that you have found the lowest price on your item.

The Secret of getting a great price in store

With ASPM, you can be sure to get the most competitive pricing at any NCIX retail store, and know in advance if your price match has been approved!

Instead of visiting a retail store to see if you can get them to match their competitor's price on a product, with the risk that the retailer may not approve your price match you've requested, you can now visit an NCIX retail store with the assurance that you've already been pre-approved for a price match on a specific item.

Please note that ASPM are for in-store purchases only.

We'll BEAT the competitor's price

In some cases, NCIX can even offer you a better price on a product than our competitors can.

While many other retailers may offer to match and beat a price by a few percent or a few dollars, our Advanced Store Price Match system allows us to sometimes offer an even better price rather than some cut and dry formula.

If we can beat a competitor's price by even more, we often will.

Terms & Conditions

  • The advertised item must in stock at NCIX and the requested competitor's at the time of the request.
  • The advertised item must be the exact same brand, vendor part number, model number, and colour as the purchased product.
  • The advertised item must be new, and sealed-in-box, with a valid Canadian warranty, and advertised in Canadian dollars with an authorized Canadian reseller.
  • All approved ASPM requests are valid for 48 hours from the time they are approved.
  • ASPM does not apply to advertising errors, misprints, institutional pricing, bid pricing, after-rebate pricing, coupons, bonus offers, limited quantity or limited time offers, refurbished products, open-box pricing, clearance specials, close-out sales, bankruptcy sales, bonus offers or special financing offers.
  • We reserve the right to limit quantities to one per customer.
  • ASPM cannot be used in conjunction with other NCIX promotions.
  • NCIX reserves the right to remove a product from our inventory and return all inventory to a manufacturer in the case of a large price discrepancy, instead of offering the product to the public. NCIX is committed to offering our customers the fairest everyday price possible and expects its manufacturers to do the same.
  • NCIX reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of this program at any time.
  • Prices submitted for Advanced Store Price Match must be from a Canadian retailer and must be in Canadian funds. No foreign retailer Price Match requests or currency conversion equivalents will be honored.
  • NCIX.com has the right to reject or refuse any Price Match request, or order upon our discretion. While we will make every attempt to match a competitor's price if requested, we sometimes cannot match competitor's prices. In the event we cannot match a competitor's price to a Price Match request, we may contact you with our lowest price.

Additional FAQ for online price matches

Although it is not always possible to match the prices offered by our competitors, we would like the opportunity to win your business. At the bottom of the checkout page, there is a Price Match button. Clicking this will allow you to enter competitive pricing, and the source for the price (which must be included). Unfortunately, Price Match is only offered to our Canadian customers at this time.

Prices considered for Price Match must be IN STOCK and available as a NEW item at a retail business or a web based store, with full e-commerce functionality, a valid SSL certificate and credit card verification. Exact items, model numbers and part numbers must match to qualify for Price Match requests. Most computer products are sold as Retail, OEM or Promotional products, and while they are often similar products, we cannot match prices on items with different packaging.

Prices submitted for Price Match must be from a Canadian retailer and must be in Canadian funds. No foreign retailer Price Match requests or currency conversion equivalents will be accepted. Price Match requests will be rejected for any competitor's prices that appear to be a misprint, typographic error, fraudulent price or misrepresentation of a product.

As verification of competitors' pricing is done manually, allow up to an additional 1-3 business days for Price Match processing.

Please note that many competitors' quoted prices include a 2-3% cash discount, when their customers are paying by cash or certified check. In such cases, if we can match a competitors' price, the cash discount will be added back to the matched price.

Once your price matches have been accepted, you can no longer edit the order. Please contact us here to make any order changes. The acceptance of the price matches are based on the entire order submitted by you upon check out. In the event you wish to modify your order after it has been approved, then your order may be subject to cancellation.

Our Real Canadian Superstores participate in a price matching program that applies only to our major supermarket competitors’ print advertisements (i.e. flyer, newspaper). We will match the competitor’s advertised price only during the effective date of the competitor’s print advertisement. Our major supermarket competitors are determined by us and are based on a number of factors which can change from time to time. Identical items are defined as same brand, item type (in the case of produce, meat and bakery), size and attributes and carried at that store location.

We will not match competitors’ “multi-buys” (eg. 2 for $4), “spend x get x”, “Free”, “clearance”, discounts obtained through loyalty programs, or offers related to our third party operations (post office, gas bars, dry cleaners etc.). Please note details of these programs can be subject to change at any time.

Full details can be found on the back of your local flyer. We want to assure you that we are committed to offering our customers quality products at great value.

Sears - Price Protection Plus

At Sears, you get the peace of mind knowing you never need to shop around for a better price even from the comfort of your home. That's because all Appliances, Sewing Machines, Vacuum Cleaners, Home Furnishings, Mattresses and Electronics* come with Sears Price Protection Plus.

What is Price Protection Plus?

With any purchase of Appliances, Sewing Machines, Vacuum Cleaners, Home Furnishings, Mattresses and Electronics* that is made with your Sears Financial Credit Card, we will match a Canadian retailer's advertised price. Purchases made with any other tender are covered for 30 days.

How does Price Protection Plus work?

Option 1: Come in.

  • Bring in a copy of a Canadian retailer's advertisement with an identical item advertised for less to one of our sales associates in store. Once they verify the details, we'll match their price.
  • If you have already purchased the item at Sears, bring in a copy of a Canadian retailer's advertisement with an identical item advertised for less and your original Sears receipt to one of our sales associates in store.

Option 2: Call in.

  • Call 1-800-26SEARS with the url and page of a Canadian retailer's website where the exact same item is found. Once the Customer Support associate verifies the details, we'll match their price.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER:

*Price Protection Plus on Electronics is valid up to 30 days only on all tender types.

  • For Appliances including sewing machines and vacuum cleaners, and Home Furnishings including furniture (e.g. bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining, home office, ready to assemble), upholstery, recliners, and rugs. The Price Protection Plus must be used on identical product (same manufacturer's product code, model, SKU number). The item must be in stock and available at the advertised price.
  • For Mattresses the Price Protection Plus can be used on comparable national brand and SEARS-O-PEDIC sleep sets. The item must be in stock and available at the advertised price.
  • Price Protection Plus only applies to current and new merchandise (refurbished merchandise is not applicable).
  • Sears will match the dollars, not the percentage.
  • Price Protection Plus applies to the purchase price of the merchandise only, and does not apply to add-on related services such as delivery, installation, maintenance agreements, special credit or financing terms.
  • Price Protection Plus can be used in conjunction with a legitimate written quote from a Canadian competitor (e.g.: product quote sheet or actual sales receipt).
  • For C.O.D. orders (where accepted), cash will be refunded or a cheque will be mailed to your home address; for account purchases the refund will be handled by a credit to the account used (credit may appear on the next statement that follows the statement showing the item purchase).
  • Price Protection Plus can not be combined with any other promotional offer.
  • Price Protection Plus does not apply to clearance products, advertising errors, factory closeouts, store opening specials, time specials or limited quantity offers (e.g. Boxing Day, Black Friday), builder rebates, auction website prices, licensed departments, club retailers, co-op or wholesale purchases, United States or Internet-only retailers, bundle promotional offers, and credit/financing terms.
  • This program may be amended or discontinued at any time without notice.
  • For more information, contact the Sears call centre at 1-800-26-SEARS.

SportChek - Price Matching

At Sport Chek we constantly strive to offer competitive prices in the market. Prior to purchase, if you find an item available for sale at a lower advertised price by our competitors; or within 30 days of your purchase, if you find your item advertised at a lower price by our competitors (or at our store) we will gladly match that price. Price matching does not apply to online offers.

Conditions*: Present your original receipt along with proof that the item is being advertised at a lower price. The price must be verifiable by our employees, must be in Canadian currency, and must be sold by an authorized retailer located in Canada (internet offers do not apply). The advertised item must be the same brand and model, and be available for immediate purchase. This policy does NOT apply to demo products, third party offers (i.e. ski passes), advertising errors or misprints, rebates, coupons, free or combined offers (i.e. gift with purchase), limited time offers (i.e. grand opening sales), close-outs, or liquidation items. Your credit will be in the same form of payment as the original purchase.

The conditions of our Price Match Policy may be modified without notice.

Staples - Price Match Guarantee

If you find a lower advertised price on an in-stock, new identical item from an Authorized Canadian dealer, now or within 14 days of your purchase, just show us the price and we will match it!

If our competitor has a bonus offer with an item that we carry, we will match the competitor's price and provide the identical bonus item where possible. If our competitor offers a free Gift Card with an item that we carry, we will match the competitor's price and provide the same valued Gift Card. We do not match tender, such as gift card discounts, with our competitors.

For Internet and delivered purchases, the competitor must have the item in stock on their Web site, and next-day shipping and handling fees will be added to the competitor's price to make a fair comparison against our price. If no shipping and handling charges are readily available in the advertisement, a flat fee of $15 will be added to the competitor's price. There are some towns in Canada where additional shipping charges apply. Our Store Managers and Call Centres can help you determine these costs.

An identical item is a product with the same manufacturer and model number. An Authorized Canadian dealer is a retailer that the Canadian manufacturer willingly sells to (typically, unauthorized dealers do not offer legal Canadian warranties and/or packaging). The Price Match Guarantee does not apply to refurbished items or demos.

An advertisement is defined as a copy of a current Canadian: dated advertisement, original register receipt, catalogue page or competitor Web page.

From time to time, our catalogue, Internet and store prices might temporarily not match due to printing press deadlines. If this happens, you will get the lowest price of the three.

We reserve the right to limit quantities sold to an individual customer. The price match guarantee does not apply to competitors' or Staples advertising that states "limited quantities," "clearance," "close-outs," "bankruptcies" or special events (e.g., Boxing Day, Black Friday). We do not match typographical errors in competitors' advertisements. OEM, Government and Educational prices may be excluded. Prices do not include applicable taxes and/or eco-fees. We reserve the right to modify the terms of our price match guarantee from time to time.

Target - Price Match Guarantee

If you buy a qualifying item at a Target store then we'll match the price if you find the identical item for less in the current or following week's Target flyer or any competitor's local printed flyer. Price match may be requested at Guest Services prior to your purchase with proof of current lower price or by bringing in your original Target store receipt and proof of the current lower price.

Price match guarantee: the details

  • The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, colour, quantity and model number.
  • A printed copy of the competitor's flyer must be provided to Guest Services (no photocopies or flyers printed from online).
  • The competitor's price and flyer must be valid at the time the price match is requested
  • Competitor catalogues can be matched as long as the catalogue displays a current date, retail price and meets all other competitor ad match qualifications.
  • If item is not available in a Target store, a rain check will not be issued to match the competitor's print ad.
  • We reserve the right to verify a competitor's advertised price and the availability of the item.

Price match guarantee: exclusions

Competitor exclusions:

  • Prices from other Target stores, including Target US and CityTarget.
  • Online prices, including Target.com and competitor websites.

Price exclusions:

  • Clearance, closeout, damaged product, used, refurbished, open packages or liquidation sales.
  • Prices advertised only as a percent off or dollar off.
  • Paid membership club or paid loyalty programs (e.g. prices that require a club or loyalty card that is associated with a membership fee).
  • Free product promotions, buy one, get one, bundled offers, or special purchases if the retail price is not shown in the advertisement.
  • Competitor coupon-required, including mobile coupons.
  • Competitor price matches on items where Target or the competitor is offering a free gift card.
  • Mail-in offers or instant rebates.
  • Sales tax promotions.

  • Display merchandise, used or previously owned items.
  • Damaged product or opened packaging.
  • Target Mobile offers, including Contract cell phone plans and devices.

All matches are done against pre-tax prices; guest is responsible for applicable taxes. Target may modify these terms at any time.

What do you mean by local retail competitors?

This refers to retail stores located within the same market area as a particular Target store. Examples of a market area can be a city, a metropolitan area or a specific rural region.

What qualifies as proof of a price?

Please show us the entire printed advertisement. Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of a competitor's printed ad.

Can I use a coupon when price matching?

A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target's normal coupon policy. When the guest presents a coupon(s), these steps will be followed:

  • Manufacturer coupons: Manufacturer coupons: manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.
  • Target coupons: Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's
  • Combining both Target and manufacturer coupons: the Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.
  • Reminder: we accept one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item unless either coupon prohibits it. Target does not ad match a competitor's coupon-required offers.
  • We happily accept one manufacturer's and one Target coupon per item. View our Store Coupon policy.

Walmart Canada ad matching: what is posted is out of date. Also, comes from the U.S. website, so parts of it isn't applicable to Canadian stores.
