Saving Even More Money with London Drugs

Canadian Deals & Coupons

london11For all of us lucky to have London Drugs we all know just how much we can save while shopping there with price matches and coupon stacking.  I recently discovered a way to save even more money.

I have always been aware that LD guarantees the lowest price on your purchase for 30 days from the date of purchase but to be honest I never followed through with this.  I thought if I was already saving so much money through coupons why would I bother to keep an eye on the prices for the next 30 days?

Well that all changed this week.  I buy many diapers for donations and last week LD had a sale on Huggies for 2 for $30.00 which was a pretty decent price.  Well this week Superstore has blown us away with Huggies on sale for 2 for $25.00!  Last week alone I purchased 8 packages of Huggies which would make the price difference $20.00.  That was enough to motivate me to bring my old receipts back in and ask for my 30 day price guarantee.  No hassle, no questions, no problems!  My usual cashier refunded me the difference and I applied it to my current shopping trip which resulted in huge savings!

The moral of this story is do not be afraid to utilize store policies.  They are there for a reason and I guarantee that few people call them on it but if it is in place to save us money and ensure we return to the store to shop then we should use them.  I know that LD can sometimes be overpriced but if I combine that with their amazing customer service, their price matching policies, the ability to stack coupons and now their 30 day price guarantees I am sure to shop at London Drugs a little more often.

    When you bought the diapers for 2 for $30 did you use $30 in coupons? Just wondering if when they refunded…did they refund the coupon value if you used coupons up to $30?

    yeah it’s neat because Future Shop has it too and my parents had bought a bluetooth headset there and then the next week it was on sale somewhere for $50 cheaper and so they brought it in and got $50 back! no problems! So that was EXTREMELY nice!!!

    I did coupon stack with my first order of diapers which does not make a difference for the price match since they are being reimbursed for all of those coupons. If I had paid a lower price for the diapers I would not have had to stack so many coupons. While the cost was being adjusted on my receipt the cashier did not count up all of the coupons I had used. The same would occur with a return since the coupons are used essentially as the same as cash. I hope this helps.

    Strange, same place and such different perspectives. We stopped going to London Drugs more than five years ago. The reason? …invariably the same item would be found many other places “Cheaper”. Instead of the price refund policy I prefer it when the store does the work instead of the customer. In other words just make sure the prices are less and we’ll keep spending there.
    Future Shop also once returned $80 to me on their price Gaurantee deal. Did it buy my devotion? No, it taught me to shop at the cheaper place from then on.

    I’ve pm’d twice now for past purchases. Days ago for $8 back and a couple a month or so ago for around $20. It did not matter to them if I used enough coupons to get it close to free already. 🙂

    My dad does this at London Drugs all the time. They will always be willing to match price for you. One time, I bought some hairdye and then it went on sale the very next week, we took it back and then gave us the difference back. Another time, we bought a set of hair curlers, it didn’t work good at all. We took it back and explained to them it doesn’t do the job right and they gave us a full refund back (on an open product too).
