Some retailers will let you buy an item at the (lower) price that a competitor is charging. Exact policies vary by store. Many stores or sales reps don't follow the policies to the letter, which could be an advantage or a disadvantage to the customer. Since the implementation of PM policies are inconsistent, all deals involving a pricematch are your mileage may vary (YMMV).

American Express's price matching program available on some AMEX cards. Buy an item with your card and if you see it advertised in print for less within 60 days, AMEX will refund you the difference. For more details, search the forums for BVG. You should read through a deal involving BVG before asking questions.

Do not create new threads to inform that another deal is still available. Replying to the original thread will bump it up to the top of the list.
