Black Friday Price Guarantees: What are they, and which retailers have them?

Black Friday deals have kicked off a little earlier this year and you can already find jaw-dropping discounts at every major retailer including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more. But with the promise of a good sale comes the anxiety of knowing whether you’re getting the goods you want at the best price possible. With so many retailers showcasing great deals on every gadget you could ever imagine how are you supposed to know when the price is right? Fortunately for you, many retailers are offering Black Friday Price Guarantees so your shopping experience will be completely free of any anxiety or stress. Start shopping today with these Best Buy Black Friday deals, Walmart Black Friday deals, Target Black Friday deals, and Amazon Black Friday deals.

What is a price guarantee?

Let’s say you’re eyeing the new iPad Air. You find a great deal on Best Buy very early on and click buy. You’re super pumped about your new purchase and can’t wait for your holiday gift to arrive. A few hours later you somehow manage to find an even better deal on the iPad Air at Walmart. Now what? Luckily for you, Best Buy will match the lower price and refund you the difference. That’s called price matching. You can also get a refund if you see a product’s price go lower over the next few days after you purchase it from a certain retailer. So if we stick with the iPad Air example, imagine you’re able to buy it for $200 off on Target today. In the next week that sale might go up to $300. If you see that happen, you can apply for a price adjustment and get a refund of $100!

Why is it important?

Apart from the fact that you can shop with no regrets, price guarantees are also great for getting your holiday shopping done early this year. Shipping dates for some items are already as far back as November 23 so time is running out if you want your delivery to arrive before the holidays. With price guarantees, you can make sure you’re always getting the best price — even if you start shopping early. Our simple advice to you is this: take advantage of all the Black Friday deals available now, and if prices continue to drop you can always get a refund through price guarantee policies later.

Which retailers are offering price guarantees?

Almost every big retailer has come through with price guarantees this holiday season. Here’s a list of which retail giants have the policy in place and what they’re offering.

  • Best Buy
  • Newegg
  • Target
  • Walmart

Prime Day vs. Black Friday: When’s the best time to shop?

Two of the biggest sales events of the year are Amazon's Prime Day and Black Friday, but how do you know which is the best one to shop? And are there key differences between the two events? With Prime Day coming up fast now that the Prime Day date for 2022 has been confirmed, you may be thinking you should favor that sale. Read on as we weigh up Prime Day versus Black Friday and explain everything you need to know about the two sales events.
What is Prime Day?
Prime Day is Amazon's annual sales event to mark its birthday. It's exclusively for Amazon Prime members rather than anyone with an Amazon account, but it's possible to access the deals via an Amazon Prime free trial if you subscribe at the same time as the event.

After two years of the event moving around due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Day 2022 returns to its traditional July slot and will run July 12 and July 13. As well as that, there will be early deals commencing June 21 in the run up to the big event.
