Check for price match guarantees

At any other time of the year, you’ve probably heard a number of larger retailers offering a price match guarantee. This is their promise that if you find the same product available at another retailer, and it’s cheaper, they’ll refund you the difference.

In fact, some brands even run ‘price promises’, where they’ll refund you the difference if the price of the product falls soon after you’ve bought it. Stores like John Lewis, Currys and AO.com will often refund you the difference if the price drops within seven days, but some retailers offer longer refund windows.

In an attempt to grab hold of as many customers as possible, certain retailers offer these same price match guarantees over the Black Friday shopping period. This means that you could start your Black Friday shopping a week earlier, and you can shop with confidence whenever you find a good deal.
