Just got back from a quick visit to Annaconda to get a replacemnet sx40 that was lost to the stingray a few weeks back. :evil:
I get thier catalouge and new they had a price guarantee so I had a quick check online and printed out the best price I could find and took it along.
1. They wanted to know if it was on-line shop only.
2. They wanted to know if I would have been charged postage if I had ordered it on-line.
Seems like they wouldn't honour there guarantee if it was online only (it wasn't) or an overseas offer (I get this bit) and they were going to charge me the same for postage if I had ordered it. (kind off defeats the purpose)
This is the entire wording on there policy from thier website...
"Lowest Price Guarantee
If you're resourceful, adventurous, determined and smart enough to find the same stocked item cheaper elsewhere, show us and we'll shake your hand and then beat it by 10%"
I work in retail so I know about the overheads in running a store: What I can't understand is: If you have a clear policy with no strings attached then why wouldn't you just do it?
Anyway I got them $15.25 ea and am glad there are no stringrays in Baroon pocket dam where I am heading in the morning.
For future reference if you are taking up Annaconda on thier lowest price Guarantee I would be taking a print out of the offer and the physical address of the store.
I would also prefer to give my buisness to the store that had the lowest price to start with - But they were in another state.
