i keep seeing the commercial on TV nowadays... and I wonder if anyone has challenged their lowest price guarantee...

like walk into courts at Funan and tell them that "ehhhhh at least 3 shops in this same building got lower price for this camera... how ah?"

i'm sure they probably have some clause to protect themselves... but wonder how it works :dunno:

courts is just total rubbish.

during the IT show, i told them that the IT show price and freebies are so much better than them, then i ask them "so wat is courts offer to be the lowest price guarantee?" <-- i said this pointing to the lowest price guarantee signs on the walls.

then wat the salesman tell me? "Go and get from the IT show instead, we are unable to match the IT show offer."

courts is total utter rubbish.

I'm not sure about that, but last time I went there, they say they can only match the price, but not the freebies as freebies are sponsored. Which I thought was reasonable. I'm not sure about them telling you flat that they cannot match the price though

for what i know they don sell camera stuff

mostly home appliances: hob, hood, washing machine and such
they are small neighborhood electronic shop and nothing much for you to see
most of us will check out the prices and model in megastore and give them a call for quote

Goh entertain direct phone quote with COD

Everjoint wants you to go down and put some deposit, sometimes they don even give u the price over the phone. but they do have good prices too

another shop that will match the lowest prices is the mega store at kallang leisure iirc?
sorry i cant remember the name

i know all these as i was doing some minor home renovation
infos are mostly from renotalk

as for the contacts pls do a search online cos they are easily available

:thumbsup: Great work by Courts! They let me claim back part of the different! This afternoon a representative from Courts called me up to explain to me why there was a different in Price. I was told that Best Denki was having their "In-House" promotion on selected model for weekend only and only 10 sets per store which happened to be the LCD TV I bought.... But he was honest enough to tell me Best Denki was actually selling at $779 after that promotion and Courts was willing to refund me the different which was $19 x 2=$38 ($798 - $779)....... Well better than nothing!

Courts so called "usual price" is crap. It's just a random number punched in by the person who types the price tags. This figure has to be few tens of dollars higher than the "selling price". This fictitious price would be labeled as "usual price". :thumbsd::thumbsd::thumbsd:
