LOS ANGELES, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Many major retailers offer price match guarantees but only about 5 percent of Americans take advantage of them1, missing out on huge savings. To help Americans make smart, frugal choices when shopping this summer, GOBankingRates rounded up the price match policies at 11 major retailers, from Walmart to The Home Depot, including rules, exceptions and tips for getting the biggest discount.
The guide lists each retailer's price match guarantee, including any rules and requirements; items the price match guarantee does not cover; how to request a price match; whether this applies to online, in-store or both; and whether the price match guarantee only applies to prices matched by certain stores.

"Knowing where and how you can get a better price is instrumental in saving hundreds or even thousands on big-ticket purchases," said Casey Bond, GOBankingRates' editor in chief. "Some stores go beyond just a price match by offering customers refunds of the price difference or beating their competitors' prices with up to a 10 percent discount."
11 Stores with price match guarantees:
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Best Buy
- Fry's Electronics
- The Home Depot
- Hardware benefits: Lowe's and Home Depot stand out with some of the best price match policies, with each offering to beat their competitors' prices by 10 percent.
- Online-only: The only e-commerce retailer on the list, Amazon, price matches big-ticket items such as televisions and cell phones. On the other hand, Sears is one store that will not price match internet-only retailers, like Amazon.
- Holiday exceptions: Toys"R"Us, Staples and Best Buy are among some of the big-box retailers that will not honor price matching during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
