Price Match Guarantee

Not only do we offer exciting, innovative products and expert advice, but we are eager to ensure that you receive the very best value on every product we offer. That’s why we have a price match guarantee

We’re proud to guarantee…

If you find the same product at a lower price in a high-street store or on their website, we will happily match it or refund the difference.

Our guarantee applies up to 30 days after purchase.

Online-only retailers simply don’t offer the same great service we do. Through our stores, contact centres and technical support we can offer help, assistance and advice to all our customers. This level of service can’t be equalled by many online-only retailers, which is why we don’t match their prices.

How to claim your price match

If you find one of our products at a lower price and prove that it meets the criteria shown below:

Please have the following information to hand as you will be asked a few questions to verify your claim:
1. The product name or code
2. The competitor's name and price

If we confirm that the product is being offered at a lower retail price, and that it meets the price match criteria, we will match that price.

Where we honour the price, the difference will be returned to the original method of payment and is non-transferable.
