Price Beat policy now extends to online sites and is valid for 30 days
BURNABY, BC, July 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Best Buy Canada and Future Shop have
revised their price match and return policies in response to the
changing nature of retail in Canada and commitment to customer service.
Both companies are thrilled to launch Price Beat Promise, a guarantee to
customers that Best Buy Canada and Future Shop are the destinations
with the lowest prices across the country. If a competitor online or
in-store has an item selling for less, the companies will beat it by 10
per cent of the difference, for up to 30 days.
With eight in 10 Canadians having experienced shopping online, nine out
of 10 with credit cards, the new policy acknowledges the continued
integration of online and in-store shopping for Canadian consumers.
"We're going to beat any price in-store or online for any Canadian
Competitor," said Mike Pratt, president and COO, Best Buy Canada.
"Showrooming is a completely price-based concept - it's about the
perception of getting a lower price somewhere. We see our Price Beat
Promise as rendering showrooming obsolete."
The company expects to see continued traffic to their websites as a
result of the increase in mobile shopping. Both Best Buy Canada and
Future Shop have mobile-optimized websites as well as transaction Apps
on Apple and Android platforms. The Best Buy and Future Shop apps can be downloaded from iTunes. Android users can find the Best Buy and Future Shop apps on Google Play.
