price match win - Rounding up the Usual Suspects

price match win

I needed another gallon (3.78 liters) of Elmer's glue for the floor project. (How often does one read, "I needed another gallon of glue"?) I was already at a big box home improvement store returning 310 pounds (141 kg) of floorboards, so I checked there first. No luck; they only had eight-ounce (237 ml) bottles. So I did a web search.

Best price for the gallon was at a Walmart. I didn't want to go to Walmart. For one, it's a longish drive. Two, it's Walmart.

But some businesses have price match policies. A Staples that was on my way home had the same glue, priced for 56% more – but they do price matching. I went there, picked up their last gallon, showed the cashier the Walmart price, and suddenly I had the glue for cheap, without a tedious detour.

That's a small win, but it's still a win.

Yay for doing the price-checking and not having to go to Walmart!
