Low Price Guarantee:
Your value is assured! We guarantee prices on all that we sell and will match advertised prices from any website, publication or local store (No Auctions). If you find a lower advertised price on day of your purchase, simply email or fax us a copy of the advertisement and we will match it. Items must be the identical model in comparable condition and must be physically available for purchase. Availability, shipping and taxes will be included in our price match decision. The item must be offered by a factory authorized retailer with appropriate warranty. Proof of lower advertised price must be received within five days of your purchase.

In-store Advantage:
