HP Price Match Policy
HP price match (before purchase)
At the time of purchase, HP.com will match the current direct-fulfilled, pre-tax price for new "Comparable PCs" and identical HP printer model numbers from any nationally recognized on-line retailer, such as Dell.com, Lenovo.com, Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, TigerDirect.com, Newegg.com and Staples.com. Just call 1-800-888-0229.
"Comparable PCs" are defined as desktops and laptops manufactured by Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, Samsung and HP which have the same specifications (screens, touch capability, operating system, processor, memory, hard drive, optical drive, graphic cards and all other product features) as an HP PC listed on http://store.hp.com.
Please call us to request a price match and to complete your new purchase as price match requests cannot be completed via e-mail or chat. When you call, please tell the sales agent:
- The Comparable PC (manufacturer and detailed specification) or identical HP Printer model number offered by the specific nationally recognized on-line retailer.
- The direct fulfilled, pre-tax price and the steps you took to get to the price.
- The applicable PC or printer on HP.com.
The HP.com sales agent will review and verify the price match request with you on the phone, including determining whether the entity is a nationally recognized on-line retailer, verifying whether the PC is a Comparable PC or whether the identical HP printer model number is sold on HP.com, and checking the lower price and the availability of the product on HP.com. Price protection, price matching or price guarantees do not apply to Intra-day, Daily Deals, in-store only, or limited-time promotions.
