In the German Google Store, there has recently been an increase in promotions for smart Google products. There were a few bargains, but you don’t necessarily have to pay the list price in the Google Store even during the idle phase. With the rather well-hidden price match promise, you can enforce the prices of other retailers.
The Google Store is not the first port of call when looking for promotions related to Google products. Because it rarely happens that the German online shop is at the top of the price comparison – but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t one or the other interesting promotion. If you want to shop directly in the Google Store for a good feeling, you can also keep an eye out for the competition.

This is how to price match works The price match promise, in which the Google Store takes the cheapest price of selected competitors and offers you retrospectively, has been around for a
long time. Here’s how it works: You must have already purchased the desired product from the Google Store. If you then discover a cheaper offer at Media Markt, Saturn, Bauhaus, or Tink during the return phase, you can inform the Google Store about it.
After checking the submitted promotional price, you will be paid back the difference. It is not explained in more detail (but not restricted either), so I assume a cash payment. A payout via Google Store voucher might also be possible but is not mentioned.
Win-win for buyers and the Google Store
So keep an eye out for promotions for a few days after purchasing a product, so that you might be able to snap up a bargain afterwards. This should be worthwhile for the Google Store, because many a discount hunter would probably return their device and order it again from the competition. However, there is the fine print that you should not forget and pay attention to when looking for cheaper offers.
The fine print
Excludes: Smartphones on a contract or financing model, special daily or hourly offers, pre-order or trade-in offers, wholesale pricing or special educational, corporate or member pricing, mail-in offers, offers with coupons or gift cards, pricing errors, product bundles or free items, bundled services or bundled support, clearance sales, offers for items that have been opened, refurbished or used items, products shipped or sold on a competitor’s website by a third party.
That is a long list of reasons for exclusion, but they are all understandable. So it should be enough to scour the brochures of the four retailers Media Markt, Saturn, Bauhaus and Tink for normal price reductions
