IT’S important to maximize your savings even if you happen to find what you think to be a good deal on Black Friday.
But what some may not be aware of is a policy that major retailers offer known as price match guarantee, as pointed out by TikTok influencer Becky Guiles, also known as the “Freebie Lady.”
What is a price match guarantee?
Stores offer this policy to satisfy customers who find the same product sold for a lower price after or even before its purchase.
If this happens and you bring it to their attention, they will refund the difference to you.
It’s important to read the specifics on the terms and conditions to see if one of the stores you are shopping at this Black Friday offers it.

It’s important to note that many offering the policy will also match the price of their competitors too.
Be sure to carefully read the fine print of each individual retailer and hold onto receipts to show proof.
How to shop Black Friday
Along with keeping price match guaranteed policies in mind, there are some other things you should do as well.
Before buying a product, make sure to compare prices to make sure another retailer isn’t selling it for a lower price.
DealNews consumer analyst Julie Ramhold recently told The Sun: “go to Google Shopping and search for an item with an appropriate model number if you need to in order to make sure you aren’t missing out on a better deal at a store you might not be thinking of.”
This applies to sites including Amazon, she added.
In particular, you can use Amazon’s CamelCamelCamel tool.
This tracks the price history of items sold on the marketplace.
It works by searching for the item of desire on Amazon’s platform and then copying the URL and pasting it into the CamelCamelCamel website.
It will reveal the historical price of the item, so you can check whether you’re getting a good deal or not.
Another important thing is knowing what to shop for on Black Friday.
There should be some “excellent deals” on the following items today, according to Ms. Ramhold.
