Price Matching One Million Products on Amazon UK
In addition to the savings earned through this year’s selection of deals, customers will also save money as Amazon teams work to price-match products, to ensure low prices for our customers all year round. Research scientists and software developers at Amazon build technology and systems to frequently monitor products sold by Amazon and compare them to leading online retailers in each product category. The team matches prices on more than one million products in the UK, as compared to the lowest credible competitor. This means customers can be confident that when they shop on Amazon, they will find low prices on a wide selection of products, every day.
“We are acutely aware of the cost pressures customers are facing at the moment. We’re doing everything we can to make sure we’re offering customers great savings this holiday season, and throughout the year,” said John Boumphrey, UK Country Manager for Amazon. “Our deals will save customers over £250 million this holiday season, and this is on top of savings from price matching more than a million products. We hope these savings help customers find the perfect gift for a loved one this year.”
