According to a recent article in â€œPC World,â€ more than half of U.S. adult mobile phone owners used a handset for shopping assistance while in stores during the 2011 holiday season. Additionally, a quarter of these shoppers went online to see if they could find a better price for a product they were considering buying.
With smart phones becoming more prevalent as shopping tools, price matching is becoming increasingly popular. With this in mind, the Army & Air Force Exchange Serviceâ€™s â€œWeâ€™ll Match It!â€ program is ensuring military shoppers at Fort Huachuca pay the lowest price possible.
Depending on the item, price matches can be done with or without a competitorâ€™s ad:
- A price difference of less than $10 is matched on the spot.
- Pricing discrepancies greater than $10 are matched with a current local competitorâ€™s ad.
- Of course, in either scenario, products must be identical.
â€œWe even offer a 14-day price guarantee on any item originally purchased from the Exchange,â€ said Colleen Murray, general manager, Fort Huachuca Exchange. â€œSo, if an item is sold at a lower price by the Exchange, or any local competitor, the price can be matched up to two weeks after the purchase.â€
The Exchange Catalog and shopmyexchange.com also match lower prices (including shipping and handling) from other online retailers on identical items available for sale and delivery in the customerâ€™s area.
