You will usually find that now you have done the pricematch they will drop the price on the shelf to a dollar or 2 less than the other place so that they do not have to do this again. They dont always drop it on the computer tho so you have to watch it when you see those temproy price tags and buy something.

I thought their price promise is 15% off the price difference, not the item value. This means the 15% is only $13.80 - $105.80 Saving, not $220.25





Hmmmm

No, they will beat the other price by 15%, but there is a huge list of exclusions. I was told that a house lot of downlights wasnt covered because it was a trade quantity, but they would let me have 5 at the 15% off price.
