So you have looked around, maybe read my article about The Best Corded Lawnmower for 2019, and you are ready to purchase a mower. How can you be sure you are getting the best price possible? This article will show you how to use Amazon to get the best price.
Certainly there are plug-ins and add-ons that will compare multiple sellers or sites but what if you want to purchase from Amazon because the shipping and returns work well. Maybe you are a Prime member at Amazon so shipping is fast. Suppose you also found a better price at another site but the physical store is too far away and delivery is not as trustworthy or will take too long. By the way, I tested the 2 most popular add-ons for price comparisons and neither found this item for less.
Does this always work? I waited 3 days and no match. As you can see it does NOT always work. I have done this many times and they are almost always within a few dollars or matching within 2 or 3 days. That doesn’t mean they will always match but most of the time they do.
Review of steps:
1) Find the item you want
2) Check around for a better price
3) Copy the URL for the webpage with a better price
4) Go back to Amazon and scroll down to the “tell us about a better price” link
5) Fill out the pop-up form with URL, Price and Shipping
6) Wait 2 or 3 days for Amazon to match the price (it can be faster)
7) Purchase your item for the best Price with Amazon or Amazon Smile.
One other thing I want to mention (I just did above). There are 2 ways to buy on Amazon. There is regular old Amazon, which most are familiar with. Then there is Amazon Smile, which looks a little different but has an added bonus at no cost to you.
On Amazon Smile a small portion of your purchase goes to the charity of your choice. Once it is set up it takes no longer for anything and costs nothing extra. All my purchases are through Amazon Smile or direct through my chosen charities link for shopping. Please consider using Azon Smile.
