Family Dollar is jumping on the price matching wagon! “If you find a lower advertised price, we will match it!” There are a few rules to this policy:
Family Dollar will match:
- Any local competitor’s advertised price. The Competitors’ ads must feature a specific item for a specified price during the specified time of redemption.
- We require the customers to have the ad with them (photo copies and mobile ads are not allowed and will not be accepted) to honor a competitor’s ad and the ad dates for the competitor must be currently valid.
- Any limits that the competitor has will apply.
Example: limit 2
- Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.)
- If the offer is Buy One Get One free, the ad must have a specified price for a specific item
Example: Buy One for $2.49, Get One free (BOGO)
- Preferred/Loyalty shopping card prices for specific items that are in a printed ad will be matched
Family Dollar will NOT match the price in the following types of competitor ads:
- Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined Internet pricing
- Misprinted ad prices of other retailers
- “Going out of business” sales or “closeout” price Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price.
Example: “Buy [item A] to get [item B] for $C”
- Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get free product:
Example: “Buy both [items A & B] to get [item C] for free”
- Items that require a purchase to get a competitors’ gift card.
Example: “Buy [item A] to get a $B gift card”
- Buy One, Get One free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
- Going out of business or closeout prices
- Percentage off example: “All Toys, 40% off”
- Competitors’ private label price promotions
- Contract cell phone plans and devices
