PetSmart Price Match

I am going to PetSmart over the weekend to get a new tank and some supplies. I was wondering if PetSmart price matches the price from other competitors. Does anyone know if this is true or do I have to call my local PetSmart? Thanks in advance!

You generally have to have proof. I have found it to be very difficult to get price matches. Maybe try taking a dated picture of the shelf before going there with your cell. One thing I have been succesful in doing is getting them and Petco to honor each others coupons.

Petco does so I would imagine PS does as well. Has to be a local competitor and no online.

I will print the proof and do they honor their own online sale prices? And what about online competitors like Amazon?

Yes, they will price match. If necessary ask them to call the competitor to verify the difference. We do that at my PetSmart.

ETA: I do not know about online. I think someone asked us that once, and our manager said we could only match local prices. But, I am not 100% on that.

I called my petsmart with the same question. They told me to bring in the petco ad, and then they would match with it.

But, I've also heard that they can be difficult about it as well, just depending upon who the manager is. If it was me, I'd call first, get their name, and THEN go to the store. That way if they question, you know who you talked to, and they're more likely to honor the match. And, if they tell you no on the phone, then you haven't wasted a trip.

Here's a link to the petco ad:
http://www.petco.com/petco_Page_PC_petco-coupons.aspx

Just hit that button and put in your local zip code, and the flyer will come up on screen and you can print it out.

For what it's worth, here's a copy of my local circular:
http://petco.shoplocal.com/petco/Def...e=Petco-130331
(just click on the upper right hand corner to "turn" the pages, the sale tanks are in the back pages)

Or, if this doesn't work for you, I'd bet if you went to a petco they'd give you an ad. I was a pharmacy tech for many years at CVS, and we always had piles of the sales circulars lying around, I'd assume most retailers are the same. :)

They will not ad match for online products and prices. They will ad match for physical stores. If in doubt, bring the ad.

Do they honor their own 'sale' price online? I am going to bring the ad just in case.

General rule is that they won't match their online price.
ETA: But, if you are friendly with the manager/s they might be willing to help you out! Or catch them in a good mood. ;)
