Reader tip: Price Reductions

Filed under: Uncategorized — by moneytolive @ 5:00 am

Tip from Janice:

Many of the stand-alone clothing stores (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic/Gap, etc) have a 14 day (2 week) price reduction policy.  It used to be printed on the receipt for Gap and Banana Republic, but is no longer.  If something you buy is discounted or is reduced in price within that 14 day period, you get the difference back.  All you need to do is give the cashier your receipt and ask if any of the items you have purchased have been reduced.  I just got $15 back on a pair of jeans I bought at the Gap that way.

I am amused when a store will not offer a price adjustment but will accept returns. What is to stop a customer from returning an item and immediately repurchasing the item at the reduced price?



  1. Sometimes only for full-price purchases, or not?

  2. The policies vary by store. Unless an item is clearly marked “final sale,” though, I would expect it to be eligible for a price adjustment.
