Who has better price protection policy: Adorama or B&H?

10 years 1 week ago #346671 by Jeff Dutton
I have some new lenses I'm going to be buying here pretty soon and it would seem that Adorama and B&H both are close to price to each other.  I'm wondering which would have a better price protection policy?  So if I buy something and then  find a better price else where, do they refund the difference to me, or in store credit?  Ideally I'm looking for credit back to me.  I can't stand in store credit. In store credit forces you to buy more stuff that you might not need.

Call and ask, but I don't think they will have a "price guarantee". 

Why so serious?

I agree with Ernesto. There is also some off-the-site that will cut prices and deliver grey market. Prices on the big sites also reflect manufacturers discounts, etc. so they can not absorb past prices. I bought a new 70D at B&H and got money off and a kit (camera bag, extra battery and card). That deal did not exist a month before and does not exist now. 

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I do believe Adorama has a 30 day price guarantee for in house credit only

They both are most likely the same, 30 day in store

That's why I do my research first, most of these sites will try to keep your money.

Usually service and dependability are the determining factor. I am moving toward one because of some issues with the other. Does not pay to save a couple of bucks if you get the shaft.
