Price matching is a practice in the US online retail business that has seen many customers benefit from partial refunds in the event the prices of certain goods drop or shift. If you, for instance, bought a Nike shoe that was put on sale for $150 and within a few weeks the price shifts to $99, you’ll be eligible to claim the extra $51 from the store. Note that the partial refund will only be done as per the terms, and within the period, specified in the store’s refund policy.
Big 5 Got It Too
Big 5 store does come with an amazing price matching or adjustment policy that customers can take advantage of. The policy covers almost all the sporting products in the store including but not limited to footwear, apparel, fitness and fishing & hunting products. If the price of item you purchased is reduced within a period of 30 days from your order date, you are eligible to ask for a partial refund or price adjustment.
Big 5 Price Matching Exceptions
Big 5’s price adjustment policy allows the store to make only one sale adjustment per item. The adjustment, in this case, cannot be combined with other offers or deals that are not in effect at the time the adjustment or matching is done.
Stores That Big 5 Price Matches
The pricing range of different sporting products in Big 5 is pretty much dependent on what other qualifying stores or e-commerce websites are offering. When new footwear or apparel comes out, they’ll be available at
different stores with reasonably high price tags. As weeks go by, the prices will start to come down and that’s when one store will start adjusting prices for their customers based on what other qualifying retailers have put out.
Big 5 apparently hasn’t specified which stores it price matches. So you might not be able to have price matching done with stores like Amazon, Cabela’s, Nike, Academy Sports, Edwin Watts, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Finish
Line that are big on selling sporting products. Perhaps the only kind of price adjustment you can check out for is one that seeks to reconcile the price of products in Big 5’s local stores and online store.
How to Price Match on Big 5
Before asking Big 5 to do price matching for you, be sure the sporting product in question is of the same brand, brand number, size and color the store is offering. After doing that, you are free to price match the product, either in-store or online.
For in-store option, you’ll need proof that you bought the specified product in Big 5 online store at a higher price, compared to the one at the local store. You’ll need to present Big 5’s online ad or price list to an in-store associate in any of the 434 stores across the US. The store will verify the product for the price match and make the partial refund right there.
Big 5’s online price matching, on the other hand, can be completed via a simple phone call or online chat. All you need to do is share the reference of the product (which you would want to price match) in Big 5 local store with the Big 5 online team. They’ll then check and verify the price changes and then do the matching or adjustment.
