Noticed Homebase sold out of most of the Karcher K4's - so reserved on in Halfords and they are selling it for £199 but will price match to £75!

Receipt has been uploaded below as evidence.

I reserved and collected from Bristol with no issues and no questions asked if Homebase even had any in stock.

Link to Homebase is :

homebase.co.uk/kar…367

Seems to be a fair amount of stock available on the Halfords website - so pop in and have a go!

Halfords price match guarantee states the competitors item must in stock for home delivery, collection within a 30 mile radius but this was not even asked of me or checked. My nearest store was 2 miles away.

Love this pressure washer. Had mine since October and was a very good upgrade from my old bosch one. Just wish I'd waited a couple month now for this price!

I was not told that - and literally no questions were even asked. I have uploaded my receipt as proof so you could always show them this too.
Terms and Conditions state that need stock in 30 mile radius, which sadly mine don't have. I guess yours didn't bother to check,

Reserved mine in Home base.
Just booked but got call from halfords that they wont do price match cause homebase currently out of stock
Won't do it anymore as the manager said to me they know all the homebase stores have sold out, and in the price match terms it must be in stock in the rivals store
Homebase have 1 in stock London Catford
Just got tipped b@llocks at Halfords Basildon
Apparently head office have told managers not to price match as they have rung homebase whom confirmed it was a discontinued item.
Thanks OP it was worth a try.
I have reserved one now, should I ask for the price match at the store or call them up and ask to price match?
Not a patch in my work zone from aldi
Reserved one then got a call from Halfords to say they are not price matching

Reserved one last night, went to collect and ask them to price match at Halfords, they said as it's a clearence at homebase they can't price match!
I just got back from picking mine up from Halfords and they price matched it no bother. Thanks.
Sorry this is long but might help some of you.

I got a K4 price matched at Halfords Nottingham early on the 21st Dec based on there being stock at Homebase in London . At this time both Halfords web sites (desktop browser & mobile browser) were showing the same Price Match terms and they did not have a distance clause in them, it just said 'The competitor must be based in the UK and sell to direct to customers (I have a copy).

At approx 11am that morning they updated there browser website to include a 30mile radius clause however they did not change their mobile site terms, these did not get updated until sometime on the 23rd. Prior to this I ordered 3 on Click and Collect via my phone and showed the store the Price Match terms as displayed on their mobile site but the store still refused to.price match.

I've raised a case with Halfords Customer Services and I'm reviewing persuing a case for Breach of Contract in respect of Loss of Bargain as they refused to allowed me to complete my purchase by failing to honour their Price Match terms as displayed on their mobile site which had not been ammended at the time.

Halfords got caught out and tried to move quick to limit the damage and some of you may have been wrongly denied a legitimate claim against their Price Match, so worth looking at the timing of your claim especially if your did like me and ordered on C&C via your mobile before around mid-day on the 23rd when the mobile site was updated.

Fair play mate
A web based seller can amend their prices as and when it suits unfortunately, unless they have taken payment, there is no contract of sale.
