>>> 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.


NEW Suggested PM Sites (Sites that have crazy low prices):
  • SuperPixDigital
  • Plasma Video Direct
  • PM suggested additions to me!

    NEW Subimission Instructions:
  • Get a Chase card & sign up for CSS (inlcudes LPG)
  • Purchase an item using your Chase card (You may want to ask the store for an extra copy of your receipt and/or buy the item as part of it's own transaction, as CSS seems to now require the ORIGINAL receipt)
  • Find a lower price, and save the ad, print the webpage, or get a manager to sign a letter with the sales price listed.
  • Call the Plan Administrators (not Chase) to file a claim. They will ask the purchase date, purchase amount, date of "sale" (e.g. when you found the lower price).
  • Wait for form to arrive.
  • Fill out form, submit a copy of the ad, webpage, etc., a copy of your receipt (NOTE: CSS seems to have changed the rules, and now require an ORIGINAL receipt!), a copy of your monthly statement (unless your receipt lists your full CC#).
  • What the fields mean:
    Sponsoring Institution: Chase
    Date of Purchase: Date you bought the item
    Date of Sale: Date you found the lower price (can be from date of Purchase till 60 days later)
  • When your check arrives, post your success here (item, purchase place & amount, PM place & amount), then cash your check!

    UPDATE (7/23): There are now reports from several people regarding success:
  • lsutiger (5/27/03) $201.20 check for Nikon 4500, PMed to online store.

    Mohan reports CSS fax number is: 1-800-293-4608

    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

    LPG:
    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.

    RP:
    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:
    CashBuilder Platinum
    Chase Platinum Visa & Mastercard
    Chase Gold Visa & MC (CSS is listed here (under CARD BENEFITS))
    Chase Visa Infinite Card

    Cards with CSS UNavailable:
    Student Cards
    Freedom Card
    Platinum Freedom Visa/Mastercard
    Chase Office Depot Platinum Business Card
    Corporate Cards
    Stockback Platnium
    Stockback Classic

    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!!!

    I called the old number 800-735-1408 to request a new claim form. When that was done, I asked the CSR if CSS will be cancelled soon. She said yes, they will no longer handle the program starting Aug 1, but somebody else will. I asked for the new number and here it is: 800-356-8955.

    I don't see this card on their page. Do you have a link?

    Anybody have any info on this? Desperately need a BVG card.

    I can confirm that the Citi Diamond Prefferd card also has BVG now. I've got this card now and did my first price adjustment recently.

    Hmm...I have a Chase Stockback card. Anyone know if that card has the same Low Price Guarantee?

    I have this card, and cant find this, will look more...

    any annual fee?

    Desperately need a BVG card which could PM online store.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

    Sounds good, never hurts to have a master card that does bvg, since some merchants don't accept AMEX. Now, can someone give a brief line about what is happening to AMEX bvg? I've heard so many things about it, it is making my head spin. Thanks in advance.

    How could you be confused. AMEX is dropping the ability to price match online stores. If you're confused by that then you shouldn't own a credit card.

    Back to this deal: If someone can confirm this it would be way hotter than AMEX since the only AMEX with BVG requires an annual fee.

    The Citibank Price Protection Program does not apply to:


    What is not covered:

    Internet purchases or advertisements.
    Used, antique, recycled, previously owned, rebuilt, or remanufactured items, whether or not the Cardmember knew the item was used, antique, recycled, previously owned, rebuilt, or remanufactured.
    Items for which the printed advertisement containing the lower price was published more than 60 days after the Cardmember's purchase.
    Items advertised or shown as price quotes or bids from a merchant.
    Items purchased subject to rebate, redeemable manufacturer's coupon, or any refund of any sort, in which case your purchase price will be determined by taking into account any such rebate or refund.
    Items advertised in or as result of "limited quantity," "going out-of-business sales," "cash only" or "close out" advertisements, items shown on price lists or price quotes, cost savings as a result of manufacturer's coupons or free items, or where the advertised price includes bonus or free offers, special financing, installation or rebate, or one-of-a-kind or other limited offers.
    Customized/Personalized, unique and one-of-a-kind items.
    Any services you may purchase (including but not limited to the performance or rendering of labor or maintenance, repair or installation of products, goods or property, or professional advice of any kind).
    Items purchased for resale, professional, or commercial use.
    Boats or motorized vehicles (including but not limited to airplanes, automobiles and motorcycles).
    Labor on new parts eligible for this program.

    What constitutes an advertisement at a lower price:
    Printed advertisements:
    A printed advertisement is an advertisement appearing in a newspaper, magazine, store circular, or catalog which states the authorized dealer or store name, item (including model number), and sale price. In order to receive a refund of the price difference, the advertisement must have been published on or within 60 days after the original purchase date and must be for the same item (same model number, same model year).
    Back to Top

    To File a Claim:
    For a printed advertisement:
    Save the printed advertisement for the same item by the same manufacturer at a lower price by a U.S. dealer (excluding shipping/handling and sales tax, if any).
    Contact Citibank for claim forms, filing procedures and confirmation of coverage by either:
    Calling the Citibank Program Administrator's toll free number 1-800-377-7200. General information is available Monday-Friday, 8am-12:30am; Saturday and Sunday 9am-9pm, Eastern Time; Claim assistance is available Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm, Eastern Time. If calling from outside the U.S., call collect: 1-817-348-7164.
    Writing to Citibank Price Protection Program; PO Box 901024, Ft. Worth, TX 76101-2424.
    You must complete the claim form, attach legible copies of the merchant receipt, the printed advertisement and mail the completed claim form to Citibank within 60 days of the advertisement's publication.
    Once the required documentation is submitted and your claim is verified, you will receive a check for the price difference, up to a maximum of $1,000. In the event that certain required documents are not included, Citibank will notify you and keep the file open for 60 days from the date your claim is received or until all necessary documentation is provided, whichever occurs first.

    EXCELLENT!! Thanks!
    I just registered my Chase gold Visa card in the Program.
    Chase is sending me a "packet"

    "Chase Shop Secure" is valid on gold visa and Platinum cards.

    Can you read? THERE IS NOW NO INTERNET BVG ON ANY CARD.

    Please note that what dragonxp posted applies specifically to CITIBANK Price Protection - not Chase. Dragonxp, if you could modify your post to more clearly state indicate this, I think it would reduce the confusion.

    Just call my chase card too, and the CSR was surprised to find out about this program and it is free, but you have to call to enroll and they will send you the enrolment kit within 10 days. the CSR said she enroll too. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> The Chase price protection is for 90 days instead of 60 days (AMEX)

    yes, I posted Citibank price protection earlier. just for comparison with BVG.

    Chase price protection is also 60 days - Return protection is 90 days.

    this is confusing, and mrastudent was more caustic that informative.
    i would like some clarification... is there any bvg on this chase card?
    thanks

    well, seems like my CSR got confused

    There is no question that CHASE offers a program called "Chase Shop Secure" that has a "Lowest Price Guarantee" similar to BVG from AMEX. What is unknown is whether the LPG program works with online retailers or not.

    GOOD NEWS: I was sitting here responding to posts, when I decided to read through the fine print on the little LPG packet. While it doesn't say anything explicity one way or the other, it does say:

    << Exclusions:
    13. products purchased at Internet auction sites
    14. Items advertised or shown as price quotes or bids from an Internet auction site
    >>

    Now, if they were going to exclude all online stores, why specify Internet Auctions? Looks good to me!

    Nonetheless, I plan to call the plan administrators tommorrow, and I'll post the info I find out.

    -David

    Bump! Hope we will get some good news for BVG on-line stores. If,.. hehe, it will be hotest deal.
    But it is really too good to be ture.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> I will feel more comfortable if they charge annual fee, but please waive the first year's. haha <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

    As per request, I've added the CS# for the CashBuilder Card (800-577-0636) to the OP.
    -David

    My card is Chase platinum card and it has the price protection

    i have the freedom card i will call later thanks for the info

    Wait so does this work for any Chase Mastercard? I have Chase Freedom Mastercard, can I enroll in LPG or RP?

    can somone with the welcome kit post the number listed in the kit

    the csr had no idea of what i was talking bout

    I just called the posted phone number asking about the program. When I called my specific CS line (for stockback), they didn't know anything about it. Finally speaking to an account supervisor, I was told that the "Chase Shop Secure" program is actually part of a more general Mastercard policy and that all Chase cards happen to have this feature as one of its "perks" (free of charge).

    I should be recieving an enrollment kit within the next 7-10 business days for more details/clarification of what this program really is. Until then, this could all be misinformation...but I'm REALLY REALLY hoping this is true. I mean, the benefits of the Stockback card are already awesome as is.

    What is stockback card?

    Man, all the information given have been offsetting each other it seems.

    Now the AMEX BVG is pretty much done for with no Internet BVG and annual fee.

    1 - Now what is the BVG card for Citibank? Does it have an Annual Fee? What is the card called and what is the program called as well? Does it do Internet BVG?

    2 - Chase has a Shop Secure card which offers BVG. Does it offer Internet BVG? Any annual fees?


    Thanks in advance.
