John Lewis price match is usually a sham.

hooray henry

John Lewis price match is usually a sham.



They price matched my Panny in 5 minutes!

Must have been with a local competitor then cos they arent interested in any internet competitor price match, or with a local retailer that is temporarily out of stock. Or Costco,Makro etc.

I got a great price on a Kipling bag last time so I don't consider it a sham at all - cheers OP

They will now match online retailers that have a bricks and mortar store!

I got £60 off a Panasonic TV just last week.

Their price matches are usually very good... and they drop prices to match other offers at the moment... I know they matched an Argos promotion recently.

I got them to price match several tv over the years which end up cheaper than Amazon and with a 5 year warranty.

Got a cool popcorn maker last year when they did this

BHS have a spectacular sale event starting on Thursday, so could be to compete with that since they've made a bigger profit than John Lewis over the last 10 months.

As a JL employee I can confirm it is a Debenhams price match

John Lewis are usually overpriced to start with.

Are they doing anything on TV's ??

Would you be able to pricematch the P42G20B for us all finally ;-)

I have tried to get John Lewis to price match at least three times, once for a PDA (internet price IIRC, when they still did that), once for a washing machine (Comet) and once for a TV (a shop, I forget who). The answer was 'No' each time. I've stopped bothering and filed it under 'scam'.

Isn't matching to costco like going and saying, hey your price is too expensive i can get it cheaper at this special club know that is members only and I pay to join! Plus they only let certain people in.

If its cheaper at costco just buy it at costco!!

JL normally price match tv's with local tescos, richersounds..ect prices.

shows how ridiculously overpriced JL are in the first place that they have to reduce by 25% just to match a competitor. Even the prices now are still crap from what I have seen.

john lewis price matches any online company which has a high street presence such as Argos, debenhams,tesco etc

p.s its not a sham- i work for them and i know the products are reasonably priced ..unless ppl wana go buy primark stuff which is their own preference.

You mean like Comet, Currys, Richersounds? 3 places recently where the P42G20B has been cheaper than JL yet they refuse to pricematch.

JL have price matched the three TV's we bought over the past couple of years. Never said “No” once.

hooray henry

or with a local retailer that is temporarily out of stock.



lol. If your not happy with them go and buy from the local retailer...oh no you can't as they don't have any. Why would they price match them as they can't take the sale off them. If your going to try and get them to match something at least find somewhere you can go and buy the item from

I was looking at some cameras yesterday which they said that they have price matched but not with online companies. So I can get the camera cheaper online which was a bit disappointing. Would of thought that they don't just price match but make a little cheaper.

Instore? Online? or on the phone??

I think these JL bigging up messages are all fake lol, no one answers.

JL price matched and delivered my TV, this was in Portsmouth 4 years ago. Throw in a 5 year warranty and it easily works out as the best offer around. To clarify places like comet/currys offer 5 year warranties at stupid surplus charges like £100 extended warranty on 50" plasma etc. There is a reason why John Lewis has continued to be profitable throughout the recession and that is because they know their stuff and i would not hesitate to buy a TV off them again. The only other place i would buy a TV from is Costco.

J l do not price match tvs anymore. They changed t and c and say competitors tv has to have five yr warranty. They advertise five yr as free but this is a scam. The additional four years warranty is the same price as competitor.
No worthwhile price match on t v anymore.

FWIW, JL price matched Morrison's £50 Wii Balance Board, Sports, Sports Resort deal ( a couple of months ago) and refunded the £20 difference they had charged us, having initially refused to do so. Finally consented after I pointed out that by delaying their price check the deal had emptied stocks. So just saying persistence can pay off if you feel strongly enough that they haven't played ball.

Who is voting this hot ? Same price at guess where.
People saying jl price matched their tv are totally irrelevant, they changed terms to include warranty and at the same time they run a scam free five yr warranty. so no longer price match tv at low price. the five yr warranty is same price as rival and is not free.

huh? i dont like JL tbh with you but they give 5 years warranty with tvs or atleast they used to. And i will say it again. THEY PRICE MATCH ANY LOCAL STORES and JL always have done for as long as i know. Whether it be on the phone or instore. They price match. Full stop.

Not from my experiences. I have tried to get them to pricematch Richersounds, Comet and Currys in the past week and they have refused to.

From my experience, and others in this thread, that is not the case.

nonsese just a few days ago Currys were doing a Panasonic Viera TX-P42G20B 42" Full HD Plasma TV for £565 (Comet £599) and JL were £699 I rang up 3 times and emailed twice and reply received from JL saying they won't price match cus Currys didn't do a FREE warranty with thier TV. So JL price match is a sham or their FREE 5yr warranty is. As its not FREE if they are charging £135 more for the TV.

No they don't they told me 3 times over the phone and by email they will match the price if you factor in the cost of getting a 5yr warranty from that retailer. The guy even gave the example of Richer Sounds and said we don't match them. So in effect their warranty is NOT FREE so that's the scam that winds people up. I'd rather shop at someone honest and rude like Currys who say no we don't care rather than someone like JL who smile and pretend and hide behind lies.

PM - get real.
JL don't price match on TV's anymore. They changed t&c's to include warranty. There free 5 year warranty is NOT free therefore. The JL warranty is the price of rival AND OR the pricematch promo is just a scam/marketing stunt.

JL did change the T&C to include warranty on items, thats true, but if you can get a tv with a five year warranty cheaper from somewhere else, they'll match that price. If you actually read the t&c or listened to one of their customer service people you'd know that the price matching stuff isnt a scam. They are giving you a really good deal by including a five year warranty with the tv for free. Places like comet and currys charge £200+ for it..
