2013 Large Retailers to offer Price Matching this Holiday Season


This holiday season retailers are trying something new to reassure price-savvy consumers that they are getting the best deals. There have been many times where I’ve bought an item, only to see it at a lower price somewhere else. I’ve also rushed to a store that has an item on sale only to find that it’s sold out but I know a competitor has that plenty of the same product in stock. Other times you jump on your phone to see if it’s cheaper online, only to just leave the store and buy it online at home.

Many retailers are offering price matching this holiday to prevent “showrooming”. The term “Showrooming” refers to the practice of shopping for an item in-store, only to return home and purchase the item online or competitor for a lower price. It is becoming more convenient for consumers to do so because they are increasingly turning to their mobile devices to shop online for a product while in-store.

Before you start your holiday shopping, check out the guidelines and exclusions of each retailer’s holiday price match policy.

Please be advised that the Black Friday Price Match Policy is often a little different than the traditional policy or the holiday policy.

Free: Academy of Natural Sciences Offers Free Museum Visits to Eligible Students in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties

academy of natural sciences

In these times of limited school budgets, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is pleased to announce free museum admission to thousands of children and their teachers in six underserved public school districts in Montgomery and Delaware counties and in Philadelphia.

Students in the Title I schools also can enjoy a complimentary hands-on gallery experience in which an Academy teacher engages them with interesting information on key natural history topics and with objects they can touch, all to enhance their learning and overall visit. For schools that cannot make the trip to the museum in the heart of Philadelphia, the Academy will take the museum experience to them in the form of its popular outreach program Academy on the Go, complete with specimens, live animals and expert naturalists.

The selected Title I public school districts are Philadelphia; Penn-Delco and Interboro in Delaware County; and Norristown Area, Hatboro-Horsham, Cheltenham, and Souderton in Montgomery County. The program is open to students and their teachers in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

The free visits are funded through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program, through which eligible Pennsylvania companies that participate can receive tax credits equal to 75 percent of their contribution (up to $750,000 per taxable year), or up to 90 percent for two-year charitable commitments. The recent EITC funds awarded the Academy are earmarked for an innovative program called Supporting and Enriching Natural Sciences Education in Schools. SENSES provides high quality science experiences that are especially effective with students who do not thrive in a traditional classroom.

Last year about 29,000 Philadelphia public school students and their teachers qualified for the free museum visits. This year marks the first time schools outside Philadelphia are able to take advantage of this offer through the Academy.

Teachers from qualifying schools are invited to consult with their school administrators and call the Academy’s Reservation Office at 215-299-1060 to schedule free field trips and gallery lessons for their classes. For more information, visit
