How to use Price Drop
Price Drop checks your receipts against prices from over 150 of Canada's most popular retailers every day for as long as the receipt allows us to. Set up Price Drop and start saving money in three easy steps.
Tell us what you bought
Take a photo of your receipt using the Meridian App. You can also forward online receipts to email@example.com. Just make sure you’ve shared your email address with us in Price Drop Settings.
We search for lower prices
We’ll look for better prices on electronics, furniture, toys, apparel, and other eligible items from Price Drop supported retailers.
You save money
If we find you savings, we’ll email you or send an in-app notification. For online receipts, some retailers will refund you automatically! For others, we’ll provide the proof you need to get the difference in cost back from the retailer.
Get the most out of Price Drop
Here are some quick tips to help you out:
We don’t price match everything – gas, groceries, and entertainment aren’t eligible, for example.
Get in the habit of submitting your receipts all the time. Take a photo when you get them or forward receipts right to the Price Drop email.
You can use Price Drop for purchases made with cash, debit, and credit - even with non-Meridian cards!
Be patient! On average, we’ll find you a better price 25% of the time – and some Members have received up to $500 on a single item! So don’t give up on using Price Drop if we don’t find lower prices right away.
Price Drop works with popular retailers
Yes. Forward your online receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you go to Price Drop Settings to add the email address that you’ll be sending your online receipts from. Then we can link your receipts to your Price Drop account.
Yes, the retailer may ask for the original receipt when you claim your money back.
Yes, as an added bonus, we‘ll store any receipts you upload to make it easy to track your purchases in the future. This way you can also use Price Drop as a mobile receipt repository.
Receipts are stored for three years unless you unsubscribe from Price Drop.
We search for a lower price on your purchase for as long as we can. Some retailers have 30, 60, 90 days, or even lifetime price-matching policies.
You can check on the status of your purchases by going to Price Drop in our mobile app. Enable notifications under Price Drop Settings, and we’ll send you a message when we find a lower price.
Some people will get a Price Drop right away, but for some purchases it can take more time. It all depends on whether another retailer is selling your product at a lower price somewhere else. If they are, we’ll find it, so hang in there! We continue to search for a better price on your product for as long as the receipt allows us to. If you didn’t receive a Price Drop, it may just be that you’ve already paid the best price possible.
Visit the Price Drop Settings page to unsubscribe. Note that unsubscribing from Price Drop will remove your receipts and delete corresponding tracked purchase items.
The receipt capture process uses the same secure technology as our mobile cheque deposit service. Once stored, we perform the same stringent security testing as we do on our banking system. We do not store any personal information other than what we need to provide and support the Price Drop service. Review our Terms and Conditions where we specifically spell out what data is required to run the service. You can find them in the settings page of the Price Drop feature.
A representative may access your receipts in select situations:
- To process a receipt when the system had difficulty reading it before rejecting it.
- To process a refund on your behalf when we find a deal. This is really what makes Price Drop shine.
Other than those two cases, the receipts are securely stored for you and only you to access within the app. No one else, other than perhaps a database administrator (for investigative purposes), would be accessing receipts.
No. All we’re doing is providing the Price Drop service. We know… hard to believe, but it’s true. We’re not selling the data, analyzing your receipts, or trying to understand your shopping habits. We genuinely just want to save our Members money. If at any time in the future we do plan to do something else with your personal data, we will ask for your consent in order to do so.
Not at this time.
Show the retailer the Price Drop proof we provide in the app, plus your original purchase receipt. For online receipts, we’ll claim the refund from the retailer on your behalf whenever possible. Then the retailer will deposit the refund directly into the account you used to make the purchase.
The original retailer where you made your purchase.
