Hey there! How was your weekend? We had baby shower #2 and are feeling completely showered with love. Our baby girl is one lucky lady :)
We’re registered at Buy Buy Baby, where the price of the stroller is the most expensive ($450). Fortunately Buy Buy Baby price matches, so I checked things out online. Amazon had a great price of $319, so I brought the Amazon listing showing a price of $319 with us. Buy Buy Baby matched the price right at the register.
In addition to baby gear, we bought a new oven this past week. Our old oven started beeping and showing an error message in the middle of the night. We eventually had to unplug the oven to stop the beeping. It was a nice little reality check because we won’t be able to “unplug” a crying baby in the middle of the night.
Buying from H.H. Gregg ended up being the best of both worlds because we got the lower Home Depot price and the free (after rebate) H.H. Gregg delivery, haul away, and installation. All we had to do was print off the Home Depot price for a little price matcheroo.
The moral of today’s story is to check if a store will match competitor prices. We ended up saving $212 (before taxes and the 20% off coupon to Buy Buy Baby) just by spending a few extra minutes going a quick search of prices. That’s much more efficient and effective than driving out of your way to save 5 or 10 cents on a gallon of gas!
Do you have a price matching victory story to share?
