I was in the market for a new office chair for my home, and looked up some prices at Office Depot for a chair I was familiar with due to work. Online the chair was listed on discount for $108. I decided to stop by the local Office Depot to look at the chair (and to save on delivery charges), but they had it listed for $212.
The next day I decided to take a print-out of the online price back to the local Office Depot, and fortunately for me they decided to honor the online sale price, saving me a total of $104, or almost half-off my chair purchase.

This is another great way to get discounted rates on items you purchase, comparison shopping online to what is in the store, or even what is listed in a competitors catalog. I know that this past holiday season Wal-Mart did a huge push for price match guarantees throughout the Christmas season for their competitors. It doesn’t take much effort on our part, and could clearly save us a ton of money in the end.
