adventures in shopping with clutch22

Did you know that many online boutiques, and some offline department stores & smaller boutiques will match a price you found online at a different store, and/or even honor another store’s discount code? Yep. Not all do, but it never hurts to ask (if you spend any time on shopping message boards and forums, you know very well the frenzies that price-matching, code-matching, and price-adjustments can cause LOL)!

My friend Jordana from Clutch22 recently demonstrated her fabulous price-matching skills at Nordstrom on a pair of Dolce Vita shoes she found cheaper using a code from She succeeded in getting them for 20% off at Nordstrom, but then I found her a coupon code for Dolce Vita for 25% off – and challenged her to go in for a price adjustment.

    I was at nordstrom this weekend and I asked the sales associate to price match a pair of shoes I saw online for less. I even had the site up on my Iphone and she refused stating that Nordstrom would only match prices at other department stores and not online retailers. I’m really pissed after seeing this video, because I believed her and ended up buying my shoes full price. I think I will be calling nordstrom and complaining because the sales associate should be aware of their price matching policy which means she simply wanted to make the higher priced sale.

      oh no! you should definitely call & complain, or speak to a manger. if you bought your shoes at nordstrom, you should still get the price adjustment…be persistent!!
