Major Retailers That Price Match Amazon
The retail market is competitive nowadays. They have to come up with creative ways to be sure they are keeping customers happy. Even if that means adjusting their prices to match other competitors.
Use your customer advantage and maximize your savings!
1. Best Buy
At Best Buy you can request a price match from Amazon as long as it is sold and shipped by Amazon. It also has to be a prime item. But in my experience, it has always been up to the discretion of the sales associate. There have been many times when I have gotten lucky and the associate gave me the deal even though it was not sold or shipped by Amazon. So always be sure to check products by scanning the barcode in the Amazon app to see if they have it cheaper. Show the associate and see if they will match the price for you. You will be surprised the amount of money you will save.
You can get a price match at Target as long as you found the identical item on Amazon. But it does not apply to every purchase. If you are purchasing closeout, sale, refurbished, or open-box items you will not be able to receive a price match. This is due to the items already being sold at a discounted price.
If you forget to ask for a price match during checkout, don’t worry! Make sure you have the receipt from when you purchased the item or items that you would like price adjusted. Go to customer services at a Target store and tell them that you would like to get a price match because you found it cheaper. You will give them the receipt and show the details from your Amazon app for them to verify it is the same item. Once completed, they will adjust your price accordingly and reimburse you the difference in the form of payment that you used.
Walmart recently changed their price matching policy. There has been word that they will no longer price match other retailers. According to their website, the policy says that Walmart is committed to providing its customers with the lowest prices on all products. I would still try because you may get lucky. They will price match Amazon if it beats their prices. But there are some restrictions…
- Must be the same exact item and details
- It must be in stock at the time of purchase
- Only one item can be price adjusted per customer a day
- Must be sold and shipped by Amazon
- No rain checks are given on price matched items if they are out of stock
- Alaska and Hawaii do not price match
- No price match on Black Friday or Cyber Monday
4. Dicks Sporting Goods
If you find a better price than Dick’s they have you covered with their “Winning Price Guarantee.” Unfortunately, in-store they will not price match Amazon pricing. You will have to call the customer service number at 1-877-846-9997. They will verify your price match item details and assist you in fulfilling the price adjustment if requirements are met.
5. OfficeMax and Office Depot
It does not matter which store you are shopping at. They are one company so the price match policy is the same at both Office Max as well as Office Depot. You have to show proof of your beatable price and they will match Amazon pricing. Unless your item does not meet requirements. It must be the same item, must be sold, and shipped by Amazon. You are limited to one price match per purchase. You have up to 14 days to get a price adjustment with original purchase receipt.
When price matching at Staples your item needs to be the same and have the same details. The item will also need to be in stock at the time of purchase. If you forget to get a price match in-store you have up to 14 days with receipt to get a price adjustment in store. You will be refunded the difference.
7. Toys R Us and Babies R Us

Beating Home Depot pricing works in your favor beyond what you would expect. If you find a price that beats Home Depot you get an additional benefit in store. When you show proof of your better price and it meets the requirements they will match the price and give you an extra 10% off. If you make a purchase online, you will receive a price match without the additional discount.
Lowe’s offer price protection. Make sure you have your proof ready and meet the requirements. If you find a better price than what they have, you will get the price match with an additional 10% off of your purchase. Similar to Home Depot’s price match policy. You also get an extended period of time to receive a price adjustment if you find a better deal after purchase. With your original purchase receipt, you have up to 30 days to request a price match.
10. Bed Bath & Beyond
