Thanks for posting this.  I got the email, what, an hour ago, and forgot to check it.  I figured there'd be nothing anyway.  Was I wrong.  :bounce2:  Arpenteur coat I was just eyeing up the other day took a  big drop.  They also had a Filson red label bag which I couldn't believe.  Grabbed a few pairs of Anonymous Ism socks too.  That Arpenteur coat and the Filson bag though... I moved so fast I forgot to use eBates.  :crackup::hide:

I am pretty sure you are not getting the idea of a price match.  A lot of places will do it if you could get the same item elsewhere for less, in order to get your business over a competitor.  But there is no incentive to lower the price just because you ask, when they are the only game in town.  They have succeeded in doing what every retailer really wants to do, which is to hold an exclusive item that takes them out of the price war.  In fact, very much the opposite.  If a retailer gives the idea that their prices are negotiable, they not only lower their margins, but incur a lot of additional overhead.

perhaps i shouldve explained myself more. other places have the shoe im looking for, but not my particular size. 

 

i get the idea of price matching quite well.... not an idiot guys lol, so thanks for the subtle condescension. should be a given that when one price matches an item, they are trying to get the same price from a competitor... only ask because revolve and forward price patch competitor sites that have the same item in stock even if the size im looking for is sold out. in fact, i have done this numerous times from them.

You should ask them if they'll price match the price you have in your head.

Revolve is an odd company in any number of ways.  I don't know how well they are doing, but if it works for them, as a form of lead generation, and they have it worked into their margin, good for them.  They are possibly the only site I know of that has a perpetual 10% coupon code (it used to be 15%).  It's possible that this gets in the coupon shoppers or the web comparison shoppers.  I'm not sitting in on their strategy meetings, so I wouldn't know.  But what you describe is pretty unusual.

Just had to return a defective item back to Matches and they deducted the shipping (back to them) off my refund ! Don't think you're getting a price match

Never had that happen. That being said it doesn't sound unreasonable given that they  have free international shipping.

Are you sure ? I payed 10 euros delivery for the order and I live in the EU. Right now they have a coupon on for free shipping on orders over 250 € so it's not a regular thing
