It’s kind of the worst when you buy that comforter at Bed Bath & Beyond for $59.99, only to see JCPenney has it for $49.99!

Don’t let it happen to you — these 21 retailers will make sure you get the lowest price around.

If you’ve seen our list of retailers that offer price adjustments, you already know you can get money back on items you purchased if the price drops within a certain time frame.

Well, here’s a list of retailers who price match (plus some who give you extra money with your price match refund!)

Be sure to download the KCL app so you can always keep on top of who’s offering the lowest prices.

 

1. Does Best Buy price match competitors?

Who they’ll price match: Local retail competitors within 25 miles (including online prices.) The only online retailers Best Buy will price match are Amazon, Crutchfield, Dell, HP, and TigerDirect.

Price match period: Technically, you can only price match at time of purchase. But there is a workaround in the Best Buy price matching policy that will allow you to secure the lower price up to 15 days after purchase with a little extra work.

Fine print: Online prices are only honored if they are offered directly by the retailer – not by a third-party seller. If you are shopping online, ‘local retailer competitors’ must have a location within 25 miles of your shipping address.

Instructions: Bring in the ad or use your phone to show an example of a better price. For online purchases, call 1-888-BESTBUY.

 

2. Does Target price match competitors?

Your cashier might not require you to follow this policy to a tee, though. To price match online, start a conversation with Kohl’s customer service.

Who they’ll price match: Getting Apple to price match is tricky, and your mileage may vary. But generally speaking, they will only match the brick-and-mortar prices of Apple-authorized retailers, like Best Buy. Price matches only happen at in-person stores – not on online purchases.

Price matching is capped at 10% of the Apple list price. So on a $1,000 product, Apple would only price match down to $900, even if the competitor’s price is $850.
