Does Amazon Price Match Other Retailers?

Short answer: No

Long answer: While Amazon does not offer a price match guarantee for products sold on its website, it serves as a pricing yardstick for other retailers. As Amazon's policy on price matching states, “We strive to maintain low and competitive prices on everything we carry. We constantly compare Amazon’s prices to our competitors’ prices to make sure that our prices are as low or lower than all relevant competitors. As a result, we don't offer price matching." (Darn you, Jeff Bezos)
