Can I haggle with local camera reps.?
I went to wolf camera and a store rep. assured me they would match the price of competitors if their price was lower than theirs. Does this mean if best buy is holding a 10% off sale and I show them they will match the price? Or for example if I showed them a camera at B&H photo was cheaper would they match that price?..

If they are honorable, both situations..

You may get some argument from them in the first case though but if you're serious, push..

Thank you, I know wolf camera got poor reviews on resellerratings for online orders, but they seem very affable in-store...

Ask them. The worst that can happen is they'll say no. Just be prepared to walk away.Androohttp://Androo.smugmug.com..

We are a uk based online camera retailer, we also aim to match prices. we cant match sale prices or special offers so you shouldnt ask your local retailer to do that, but they should at least be able to offer a discount if you purchase accessories as well as a camera. stores usually add a minimum percentage onto their prices which, in most cases, can be negotiated to a certain extent. dont be afraid to ask... if you don't ask, you don't get : ) Al @ Fotosense..

I see, would you match the exact price of say, B&H photo if this store were to offer an camera for $50 less than your store? (No sales or discounts)..

Most stores only price match against local stores in the area (and the item has to be in stock at that store). They will most likely price match the local Best Buy (if BB has the item in stock), but unless you live in NYC, I doubt they will price match B&H. Of course, every answer given to you is just a guess. You need to go to the store to find out for sure...

Yes I agree. Price matching is usually if the other store has it in stock and usually not on sale. How can you price match something if the other store doesn't have to match it with? Best Buy and CC has a 30day price match I believe, even though it was bought from their own store. So if you buy regular price and the next week it goes on sale they'll pay you the difference +%...

It's one thing to ask a store to match B&H, say on an item they sell for $1000, B&H lists for $950 as compared to asking for a match with one of the crooks who has the item listed at $800. You can't buy that at a real $800 but that hasn't stoppd people from trying. Those abuses have pushed many firms away from any firm matching policies..

Trying to match from country to country is difficult because tax and customs structures differ...
