PayPal's Holiday Gift: Price-Matching Refunds Up To $1,000
PayPal is getting competitive this holiday season. The company will refund customers up to $1,000 if they find that an item purchased through PayPal is advertised for a lower price elsewhere during the holidays.
From now until December 31, PayPal will price-match your purchases with a limit of $250 on a single item, according to an official blog post from PayPal Shopping Specialist Claudia Lombana.
“If the item you purchase is advertised for lower with any merchant within 30 days of purchase, you can receive a reimbursement for the difference,” Lombana writes. “It doesn’t matter if you bought the item online, in a store, or a new item from eBay’s Top-rated sellers using “Buy It Now”. And get this — even airline tickets from the same carrier that drop in price within seven days of your purchase are eligible for price match.”
PayPal will also pay for return shipping, limited to $100 total and $25 per single item. It is also offering six-month special-financing on purchases on $99 or more (pending credit card approval).
This holiday promotion puts PayPal in competition with many major retailers who also hope to lure customers with price-match programs.
