Price matching is a smart way to pay the lowest price without running around from store to store. To avoid “showrooming”, (checking the price in a store and then buying the item for less elsewhere -usually on line), more stores are matching the price of their competitors.
Best Buy has seen their bottom line improve since they started offering a price-matching guarantee, and renewed their focus on competitive pricing. Read the Best Buy Price Match Guarantee here.
Toys R Us and Babies R Us, recently Toys R Us joined the ranks of retailers that are extending price-matching to include prices shoppers can readily found on the web. “We will match prices from selected online competitor websites, including Walmart.com, Target.com, BestBuy.com, Sears.com, Kmart.com, buybuyBaby.com, Meijer.com, FredMeyer.com, diapers.com, BabyDepot.com, and Amazon.com,” the new Toys R Us Price Match Guarantee states.

Very few shoppers will take the time to find the lowest price and ask the store to match it. I do this all the time. Why not pay the lowest price? All you need to do is ask. I want to have more money to spend on those I love. Try price matching if you do not already do it!
