Refrigerator Adjustment

January 31st, 2015 at 02:23 pm

We bought our most recent refrigerator from Lowe's. It was $808, and we got a 10% military discount. I was in there today and went by the fridge to see if there was a price change. Yep, today it was selling for $719 (less than two weeks later)!

I had my receipt and simply asked at customer service. Sure enough the price adjustment was honored. I got an $85.70 merchandise credit since I originally paid with discount gift cards purchased from Raise. In fact I used the gift cards I had left from the original purchase to buy a new humidifier filter pad and some spray stain remover. I expect there will be more items needed from the home improvement store as we get ready to sell the house!

I also noticed that our credit card was not charged the full amount on the last invoice for our furnace repair. I did question the service person about not being told the price on one part. The other one I was aware of. The charge is still more than I was told but by $20. It is still pending on my credit card, so it could be a different amount when it actually posts.

All of that was still money out of pocket but it's nice to have it all be less. I'm also glad I have just over $120 to cover upcoming expenses. I know I will need mulch for the flower beds, flowers for pots, a shower curtain, caulk, and maybe a new entry rug or two.

    You noting you need mulch made me remember something. I got huge discounts on cedar mulch for my garden last summer when I happened to noticed a slightly damaged bag of mulch marked down for half price in a different location than the rest of the bags of mulch. What did I care if it was damaged or not as long as the product is still good? Now I know to check the discount area for damaged bags.

    Good thing you went into the store and saw the reduced price!

    @FT, I had seen it change online before, but I didn't know if the store price would be the same. It really just worked out. I don't generally price check after we purchase, so we were lucky this time!

    That's really great. On a big ticket item like that it was worth the bit of extra trouble to check prices later. Is this just something you know that Lowe's does?

    Lowe's does have a Low Price Guarantee and will price match, so I guessed they might price match. I'm not sure they exactly advertise it. I was willing to ask since it was such a big difference.
