Thrifty Penny: Price Adjustment

 
'Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves'

Price adjustments are slightly different than return policies. With price adjustments, you can still get the difference in cost even if the product has already been opened or worn, as long as you have your original receipt.

Thank you! This is brilliant! I posted a link to it on my ward "mom" blog. I hope that is ok. If not I will take it down in a hurry. So helpful!

I was just in the Gap on Friday and their price adjustment policy is now 7 days. The lady said they changed it a long time ago, but I think it's been recent because I shop there a lot and have done price adjustments after 14 days recently.

Those Gap corporate scamps need to update their website. Thanks for the heads up dear. I'll update our resource.
