I recently opened a Citi Visa card through the Costco program, and I decided to read about the benefits that the card offers. I’m glad I did. I found that this card offers a price tracking service that so far has saved me a lot of money. In my opinion, one of the best features this card offers.
It’s quite simple to use:
- Purchase your merchandise and pay with the Citi Visa. Make sure you keep the receipt
- Log on to pricerewind.com and start a ‘new price rewind’
- In the search bar, enter the name of the item you purchase
- Enter the price you paid, where and date you purchased
- Upload a copy of the receipt
That’s It! You’ll get an email that the search for a lower price is on. Their system will search and track prices for the item you purchased for 60 days. At the end of the sixty days you’ll get a notice stating that the tracking time is over, and whether or not a lower price was found. If there was a lower price found, you have a choice to get cash back or a statement credit. If you find a lower price during the tracking time, simply fill out and email a form along with a picture of the item and the price to request your refund.
- Keep your receipt.
- Start the price rewind right away. Tracking is for 60 days from the date of purchase
- Their system is pretty good, but you can also do a price search yourself.
- If the item you purchased in not in their database, you can fill out a form to start a price rewind manually.
I took advantage of this service during my black friday shopping. I was surprised that some of the things I bought decreased in price even more, and was happy to get the price difference back.
