Many stores sell the same product for competitive prices. The only thing that will make you buy jeans from their store is that they sell the same style for cheaper. You do this all the time for classic grocery items, like milk or bread. We are just picky enough to go to multiple stores to find what you’re looking for.
An argument can easily be made that, depending on your purchase, you will spend more money on gas getting from place to place than you would save by shopping at one store. This is most especially true when you find yourself driving across town in stop and go traffic the whole way. In these cases, it’s best to stay in one spot, and buy everything you need there.
If you still want the amazing deals that other stores offer, find a good grocery or department store that will price match any other store around. If you bring in a coupon code, proving that these other stores are selling the same product for a cheaper price, they will sell that product at their store for the exact same price. When you can price match, there’s no reason to drive all over town. You can get everything in the same place!
A popular place to price match is at Wal-Mart. Their entire business model is based around selling products cheaper than everyone else. Not only do they have a large selection on products ranging from produce to cameras to school supplies, but they’ll help you leave with a cheaper bill than others.
Look around for a store around you that will price match. You can save money by saving yourself a trip if you find one that works for you.
