Price Match Policy FAQs
What if the local competitor item is not listed as being limited quantity, but the item is not in stock?
If a local competitor is out of stock of the particular item, we will not match the local competitor price. In stock means that the item is available for same day pickup. We reserve the right to call the local competitor to verify if the item is in stock.

Local competitor retail store refers to a store that is in the same market area and/or within a reasonable distance of our store.
How do you handle a price match if the Sears price includes a promotional offer such as a free gift card or rebate?
The Sears net purchase price is calculated by deducting the value of all instant and mail-in discounts such as rebates, free offers and promotional gift cards. Existing rebates and free offers associated with a product purchased at Sears will not apply if a price match is executed.

An identical item is the same brand and model number. This item must be new and incarton and include the same US warranty and same accessories as the Sears item. For tires in Sears Automotive, identical means the same brand, model number and tire size.
