If you buy an item and the price drops, many times you simply bring back your receipt and the store will give you the difference. That policy is called a price adjustment and every single store has a different take on it. 

This can become strategic however, when we're talking about Christmas shopping. Let's say you buy a HOT toy item on December 23rd only to find out that it's 50% off the day after Christmas. Well, if your store has a price adjustment policy, you could simply take back your receipt and get that difference back in cash. BAM! Instant deal.

Here are a few price adjustment policies for this year's hottest stores:
