Saving Money vs. Retail Price

Have you seen these statements before? “We guarantee the lowest prices!” or “We’ll beat any advertised price!” or “If you find a cheaper price, simply show us and we will match.” These are examples of wording used by retailers to advertise that their stores offers a price guarantee. Do you really know what that means?

You’ve probably heard these claims before, often from major retailers who want you to shop at their store. Price guarantees are beneficial for retailers to gain a competitive edge, as well as a great money saving tool for consumers! Here is a few notes on how price guarantees can be utilized by both:

the lowest price ad

A smart shopper knows that "we can't be beat" is not always true.

Retailers: Often retailers advertise price guarantees to communicate with consumers that they have the lowest price. They want you to put your confidence in their store as being the “best” store to shop at, which will result in you spending more money at their store. Psychology has a major part to do with marketing, but in general, if the company can instill confidence in the mind of the buyer, they will often succeed at selling more of their product. However, as a smart shopper you need to realize that just because they claim to have the lowest price, it is not always true! That’s where price matching comes in handy because it allows you to get the lowest price possible on what you are buying, so learning this skill becomes a necessity for consumers looking to save money.

Consumers: From the opposite perspective, consumers can use price guarantees as a tool for saving money, as well as a way to always get sale prices on the things you buy! First, realize that just because the store advertises their “lowest” price, doesn’t mean that you can’t find it cheaper somewhere else. Second, do your research–look at all your flyers in detail and determine which stores offer price guarantees. Some stores print it in bold print right on the front, but some will list it in the fine print on the last page. For example, Walmart Canada recently started advertising their “Ad Match” right on the front of their flyer–look for it in a blue circle. If you are unsure if a store will match an advertised sale price, call the store and ask, then make a list of which stores in your area offer price guarantees. Also research the items you want to buy and compare the prices of that particular item throughout all the current flyers and find the lowest sale price. Finally, if you find a lower price on something you want to buy, take the ad with you to the store that offers price guarantee to prove a lower advertised price. Following these steps can help you avoid paying full retail price on almost anything ever again!

So, now you know what price guarantees are and how they are used by both retailers and consumers. In part two of this series we will focus on how to use price guarantees effectively.

I personally ordered my free pair a couple months ago, and couldn’t be happier with them! The frames I chose were very fashionable, and had spring hinge arms for extra comfort, and the lens were crisp and clear. In addition I was very impressed with the fast shipping via FedEx to my door, and especially impressed with my total cost of $16! Since I am a contact lens wearer, these are definitely a great pair of glasses to have on hand when I take a break from wearing contacts!
