Better Budgeting: Price Matching Plus

Price Matching Plus

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Richard H.

While shopping for home improvement items, or items for your home, always shop around and price match.

*  *  *

Lowe's will not only match a competitor's price, but they will give you an additional 10% off.

For example, I needed a storage shed since we are moving to a house without a garage. I really wanted the 10x14. Lowe's was selling it for $479. Sears, however, was selling a 10x12 for $299. Plus, they were offering a free floor kit.

Most people would just go to Sears and buy it there. I went to Lowe's, though, and they not only matched the price and the free floor kit, but they gave me 10% off.

I ended up saving $327.50 in cost and tax and I only paid $294.96. I saved more than I paid!

Always find the lowest price and get the price match, PLUS 10% off.
