Price match at BO(Bargain Outfitters)
This is not exactly a deal. But a deal for all who bought or plan to buy! in one way.
Bargain Outfitters (BO) have a price matching policy of their own reduced prices later up to 30 days.
That is if you boought something from BO, and later (within 30 days) saw the same product for less then send them an email stating your order # and the item you bought & its price you paid for and the new item # (the prefix changes every time they change the price, the letter portion of the item, the numerals don't) and the new price and the difference. Within 24 hours (normally, not counting weekends) you receive an email back saying they credited the difference back to your account. Be nice in your email please. This happens 99% of the time. But you have to track the lower price. You can do it two ways.
1. Regularly check the BO site for the price of the items you bought.
2. Post what you bought in the BO THread, that way I know. I always check the items I post. I have set up a beautiful automated program to do that! That way I can alert you hopefully the lower price and you can send them an email and get the difference back.
I recently (2 weeks ago) bought the SEIKO watch posted for $140. Yesterday I came across the same watch dropped to$100. I posted the deal and send them an email. Promptly they replied stating they are happy to price match and refund me the money. A polite email is all that it takes.
So if you bought something, please track yourself or post in the BO thread so I could alert you.
I can tell you a thumb rule. If an item is over $25, it is probabaly going to reduce.(20% chance within a month). If you bought something less than $10, it is not worth pursuing and it is a waste of time as even if they reduce (which is only 10% chance) they go down by $1! They will happily price match $1, but they should not get in to a pattern , otherwise, when it is time to get a big one, they may not!
