Price matching saves Edwards Air Force Base Exchange shoppers millions

Whether shopping in stores or online, Airman, retirees and their families get the lowest price at the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange.

In fact, Edwards Air Force Base shoppers who price matched in 2013 at the Exchange saved $46,156.

At brick-and-mortar locations, price differences of $10 or less are matched on the spotóno ad required. For price differences of $10 or more, Edwards Air Force Base Exchange shoppers can show a competitor’s current ad with a lower price for an identical product.

The Exchange’s online shopping site, shopmyexchange.com, also matches lower prices from other online retailers on identical items available for sale and delivery in the customer’s area.
Besides matching prices, the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange has a 14-day price guarantee on any item originally purchased from the Exchange and sold at a lower price by the Exchange or any local competitor. The 14-day guarantee is valid also on any item originally purchased through shopmyexchange.com and later sold at a lower price at the Exchange’s online store or any online competitor.

With the price match policy and 14-day price guarantee, shopping the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange makes sense, said General Manager Charles Eaves. We work with shoppers to make sure they get the best priceóat the time of their purchase or after.
