Amazon Price Matching
Amazon price matching is another way Amazon successfully instills confidence in their customers and potential customers. Amazon ensures that a buyer has no need to worry about making a purchase of a television or cell phone and then finding it for cheaper elsewhere. Amazon promise to price match eligible purchases of TVs and cell phones (only) with select retailers, including third party sellers on the Amazon website.
Amazon Price Matching and TVs
If a seller finds a better price on another qualifying retailer’s website within 14 days after the date Amazon has shipped their order, all they need to do is to let Amazon know and they will credit the seller’s original payment method, taking into account any differences in shipping and promotions.
Alternatively, if Amazon themselves lower the price of the item within 14 days after the TV has been shipped, they’ll refund the difference too, if you let them know.
Retailers eligible for the TV Low Price Guarantee include:
