Currys PC World Price Match Guide

8 Jan 2021

Currys LaptopsCurrys stocks a collection of branded products from big brand names such as Apple, Samsung, Fitbit, Microsoft, and Dyson. These items are not exclusive to Currys, so there’s a chance you could find them at a lower cost with a competitor. Don’t worry, the retailer offers an excellent price matching scheme so you’ll always get the lowest price and you can buy with confidence. In this guide, we’ll discuss how Price Promise works and answer some common questions.

Do Currys price match?

Currys offers price matching across its product range and guarantees you won’t get your item cheaper elsewhere. The price match service is available through the retailer’s Price Promise scheme. There are some exclusions, which we will discuss below.

What is Currys Price Promise?

Price Promise is Currys’ price match service. It means you won’t pay less when you shop with any of its competitors. The process generally involves a simple form-filling exercise. Once this is complete, the company will match the cost of your chosen item against any other retailer, both online and in-store. It will also check discount codes.

How can I compare prices at Currys?

The website has a handy built-in feature that allows you to compare costs directly from each product page. Simply click the “compare prices” link above the “add to basket” button to see competitor prices, including delivery fees. On occasion, you may find that there isn’t an option to compare costs. This usually means that the item is only available at Currys, so you already have the best price. 

Though the price match feature can be useful, you don’t have to use it through the Price Promise scheme. It’s always a good idea to undertake your own searches too, in case the listed figures aren’t up to date.

Price matching is simple. You can use Price Promise before you buy, or up to seven days after you buy. The price match offer guarantees you won’t pay less for an identical product with any other retailer.

How to discuss a price match before you buy

If you’ve found your item cheaper elsewhere before you buy, Currys makes it easy to discuss a price match:

  • Visit the Price Promise page
  • Follow the link to complete the online form
  • Wait for a review of your request
  • Receive an email with the outcome of your claim
  • If your claim is valid, follow the steps to buy the item
  • Once purchased, respond to the email with your online order reference number, changing the email subject to “refund confirmed”
  • Get the difference in cost refunded to you within seven days

You can also discuss a price match by visiting your local store.

How to price match at Currys PC World after you purchase

If you’ve already purchased an item but later find it cheaper with another retailer, Currys will still price match it, providing it’s been no longer than seven days since your purchase. Just follow these simple steps:

  • Go to the Price Promise page
  • If you bought your item online, follow the link to use the Webchat service
  • If you bought your item in-store, you would need to revisit the store
  • In either case, you’ll need your receipt

Will Currys price match sale items?

Currys will match the cost of sale items and discount codes. This is something to keep in mind during key sale events such as Black Friday or Boxing Day when many competitors launch promotions and voucher codes.

Will Currys price match Amazon?

In addition to matching in-store charges, Price Promise also covers any UK website, including Amazon. This means you can enjoy the perks of shopping at Currys together with Amazon’s discounts, particularly during Prime Day. It’s important to note that the product at Amazon must be the same model number.

Are there any exclusions?

A small number of products are considered exclusions under the Price Promise guarantee, including PS5 and Xbox Series X or S pre-orders. It is also not possible to price match products advertised as “online only” on Currys website, or products that are out of stock with competitors.

Further exclusions include delivery fees, installation charges, product protection plans and other associated services. However, the retailer does match competitors' printer ink prices, trade, and membership prices, and those from third-party marketplace sellers.
