If you’ve never ever price matched before…

Know you’re absolutely missing out.

Not only on great savings…

But also on the rush that you feel when you score a deal.

A deal YOU made happen.

If you want to know what price matching is all about - and HOW it works - check out our ultimate guide to price matching in Canada.

And another thing. I’ve got something cooking for you next week.

We’re starting a NEW challenge. Check out the sneak peek right here:

Save Money Challenge #3 - The Price Match Edition.

Tell me - ARE YOU IN?

Why?

Because money is all about mindset.

I made a simple choice to price match at Staples more than a decade ago...

I didn’t know it at that time - but the ripple of effect of that SINGLE choice was life changing. That rush I felt empowered me to take charge of my money in so many other ways.

For easy reference, I’ve updated and summarized the price matching policies of these Canadian retailers (the original post was more than two years ago).

When the challenge starts next week, you can check back here to see the policies of your favourite stores.

NCIX

Only for in-store purchases, NCIX will beat the other store’s price by an unspecified amount. Their policy is vague and leaves me with some questions.

However, here’s a copy of their “Advanced Store Price Match” (ASPM) policy:

“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.

Look for this button beside the product that you want to start your ASPM!”

Staples

They’ll match a Canadian retailer’s price, within 14 days of purchase.

Here’s a copy of their price match guarantee:

“Does Staples have a Price Match guarantee?

Yes we do. 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 its 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. Additional shipping charges apply to some towns in Canada. 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 and we are not able to supply businesses looking to resell product to the end consumer. 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 Week, 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.”

Great source. There is also another consumer rights law where if the scanned price at checkout counter is higher than the marked price then you can get that item for free till $10 or pay the difference after $10. I rarely see people doing it but I always make note of the marked price when I pick up any item at these stores and I have used it many times when there is price discrepancy. Probably these giant stores know not all people will ask for their right or comeback.
