Price-Match Policies Get Tricky

Several brick and mortar stores just announced new price-match policies that now include matching Internet prices. So, Consumer World decided to survey nine major retailers' policies, and discovered sneaky fine print that could allow them to wiggle out of giving you any money back in many instances.

shopping As the holiday shopping season kicks off, here are some of the best things to buy in November. And remember, despite stories to the contrary, Black Friday is still the single best shopping day of the year (not for all advertised items, but for "doorbusters").


Auto Insurers Ranked

Bargain of the Week

Windows 8 for Dummies -- Free

Dell is giving away free copies of the ebook, Windows 8 for Dummies. Just fill out their form.

10-pc Hard Anodized Cookware Set -- $75!

APOLOGIES: SEARS JUST PULLED THE OFFER at 6:59AM MONDAY. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Sears has the lowest price ever on a $169 nonstick hard anodized cookware set. It is only $75 after coupon/promo code SEARS2012 which you apply at checkout. Only online with free delivery, or pick up in store. Likely ends Tuesday at 7am. This set has Elipse nonstick coating -- one of the two best coatings that theoretically allows you to use metal utensils (but don't). Warning: pans are thinner than other brands, however. As a reference, the previous best ever price was $95, and MrConsumer actually paid $112 for this set in August!

Consumer Reports
