Does Crate and Barrel Price Match to Amazon?

The million-dollar question that many ask when looking at price-matching policies of any company is if that company price matches to Amazon. After all, Amazon is where so many people go to do their online shopping these days. It makes sense that people would like to know if a company they are considering buying a product from will recognize and accept a price match that comes from the most popular online retailer in the world. If a company cannot at least do that, then what good is it to shop with them?

Crate and Barrel says the following about price-matching to Amazon:

  • They do accept Amazon price matches as long as the product is sold directly from Amazon
  • Third-party sellers on Amazon are NOT price-matched
  • The product must still be identical in size, weight, color, quantity, etc.

This is a reasonable policy given that many stores outright refuse to price-match Amazon. Crate and Barrel at least recognizes that Amazon is a major competitor of theirs, and they are willing to work with people who are still interested in shopping with them directly anyway.

How Else Can Customers Save?

There are other ways to find discounts at Crate and Barrel beyond price matching. Price matching is one of the best ways to get started, but it is not the only thing you can do to earn steeper discounts. Instead, you also should consider how you can take advantage of:

  1. Coupons
  2. In-store discounts
  3. Seasonal sales

Many savvy shoppers wait until a particular time of year to snap up the bargains. For example, it is uncommon to hold weddings in December (probably because of the competition with many holidays), so you might find some bargains during that time if you are looking for wedding supplies in particular. Keep in mind that Crate and Barrel offers premium quality products, so the savings that you are able to come up with from them may not be as massive as they would be with certain other stores, but that is because you are purchasing something that has a lot of quality to it.
