>>> IMPORTANT NEWS!!! <<<
Based on a conversation during a claim call, the latest I've heard is claims can be filed after 8/1/05, as long as the purchase was made by 8/1/05.
According to cooldotcom, Chase will be ending the LPG program effective 8/1/05 (instead of 9/1/05, as per BillLumberg, below)!
According to BillLumberg, Chase will be ending the LPG program effective 9/1/05. They have already stopped accepting new sign-ups.
This sad news has been confirmed by collybird.

Chase has some cards (see below for a listing) that have a program called "Chase Shop Secure" (CSS) available - you're not enrolled unless you actively sign up. It includes both "Lowest Price Guarantee" (LPG) and "Return Protection" (RP). This is particularly exciting because LPG is valid for online stores!
To see the fine print on CSS, you can view the scans here (thanks to mYwayORtHEhigHWaY and metapy):
Page 1 or Page 1
Page 2 or Page 2
If you find the identical item at a lower price within 60 days of purchase with your Chase Card, we'll reimbures the cost difference.
If a merchant won't let you return an item within 90 days of purchase with your Chase Card, you'll receive a full refund from Chase.
Cards with CSS available:
Chase Platinum Visa & Mastercard
Chase Gold Visa & MC (CSS is listed here (under CARD BENEFITS))
Chase Visa Infinite Card
Cards with CSS UNavailable:
Platinum Freedom Visa/Mastercard
Chase Office Depot Platinum Business Card
To sign up:
There is no known website with information on CSS. Call your Chase Customer Service # (on the back of your card) to sign up. The CS# from my card is: 800-577-0636.
Please post if...
1) If you have experience using Chase's LPG, please let us know how it went.
2) If you find out that CSS IS available on an as yet unlisted card.
3) If you find out that CSS is NOT available on an as yet unlisted card.
UPDATE: I called the administrators of the plan, and the program DOES inlcude online stores!!!
