Costco Price Match

I'm looking at buying a TV from Costco but London Drugs has it for $100 cheaper. Does anyone know if Costco will price match?

The reason I want from Costco is because of the hassle free exchange and warranty experiences I've had in the past.

WHy don't you use Google?

It took longer to come on here and make a thread then to enter "Costco Price match" into google and find the first result is an entire like 3 page thread on RFD discussing and complaining about how Costco does NOT price match.

Not sure if you are trolling. I did google and the information on rfd is outdated.

I couldn't find anything from costco that indicates any price match policy, hence I posted here.

...then it isn't much of a privilege to shop there if competitors have cheaper items.

I've never heard of Costco price matching, though. From what I've heard, they only match prices if enough people cause a fuss about it (don't take my word for it).

Costco has an awful lot of exclusives when it comes to product, especially TVs ... they may, at first, appear identical to a competitor but there is often a single distinguishing feature that makes them unique to them and thus ineligible for price matching against a competitor. Sometimes the unit can appear identical to a competitor but may lack an HDMI port of perhaps have an additional one.

They can be exactly the same except for the Model no. Costco has their own exclusive model numbers (for many sets) to get out of situations like you're proposing

Then don't shop there

But seriously, just because one store has one product cheaper on sale for a few weeks a year, Costco isn't gonna care..

It may be an older topic, but the reason you can't find anything newer is because the facts havn't changed.

Costco does not price match.

And almost all the big retailers have different models of TV's

For example specifically looking at samsung, best buy may sell a Series 6 TV that is coded as a "6000", while future shop sells an almost identical TV minus the keyboard and trackpad which is labelled the 6050 (this package is usually cheaper by the cost of the keyboard and trackpad ($150).

This effectively kills the ability for consumers to price match and protects the retailers from killing each other with sales.

iirc, Costco also extends the warranty by a year at no cost. Might not be $100 worth of extended coverage but definitely cuts into the price difference. Plus, 90day, ho hassle, return.
