Hi All,

Tomorrow i've been asked by the BBC to record a segment for them for the BBC2 'Money program' about getting good deals on-line and cashback sites etc. One thing we are going to be doing it going into John Lewis to ask them about price matching, in store haggling etc etc. They recon they are 'never knowingly undersold' and I want to put this to the test ;-) If you can find specific items on their site/instore and then find them cheaper else where, let me know and i'll put it to them ;-) .

Straight price comparisions are best, but also if items are cheaper elsewhere with voucher codes/cashback ;-)

Cheers!

In fairness to JL, People are prepared to pay extra for their 5 year guarantee on electrical products

Depends on how much extra.

But would always chose them for customer service alone.

I thought that JL do not price match with internet only prices, there has to be a physical shop that sells at that price. I have used this facility a number of times and JL has always come up trumps, the price match takes a few hours to sort out unless it has already been logged in which case its sooner. Customer service is spot on

The idea of the program is to show how much people can save by being savvy and shopping about on the highstreet and online and about using tricks like price matching, cashback, voucher codes etc.

with all the people finding prices and then going to JL for price match and warranty, I was very surprised to see them report a downturn in electrical sales of 12.1% recently.

I thought everyone on here was basically raping their sales floors for price promise bargains.

I may work for DSG but its a shame theres not a JL near me just so I can go see what all the fuss is about.

coupla the lads in my band say they've been in the odd one in london and manchester too and were made to feel a bit unwelcome by the staff.
however, maybe JL aren't used to members of a geordie pyschobilly band asking them about bed covers and curtains!
