Other ways to get a price adjustment

Aside from individual store policies, some credit cards offer price protection if you purchase an item that later goes on sale. So even if a store you purchase from doesn’t offer an adjustment policy, you could still receive cash back from your bank or card holder.

And if you find an item cheaper from a competitor, you could also be eligible for a price match.
