if you bought something (from the electronics department) and the next day it was $40 less can you take in your receipt and get the difference back or do you have to return the item and buy it over again?

I'm pretty sure they have to "return" it and have you "re-buy" it, but they can do it quickly (I think you don't even need the item, just the receipt) and you'll end up with the cash just as quickly as if they had just given you a credit.

I think it depends on the store.

Costco has excellent customer service. Bring in the item and receipt and they will adjust the price. They may have to re-do the purchase, but it will end in giving you the cash back.

There have been several occassions where I purchased an item, and then a few weeks later there is a coupon or an instant rebate.
In each case, I simply returned with my receipt and membership card and received a refund of the difference, kinda like Target does. It may depend on your store, but mine always made it right without any hassle.

I was hoping not to take the item with me because I was going to go tomorrow after I go to the dentist (same side of town) and don't want to leave it in the car... but DH called (from Costco, it's his Christmas present he's been calling me with hints...) and of course it's now less than I paid yesterday.
I might take it back anyway since I was debating between 2 versions and the bigger one is now not that much more than what I paid for the smaller one...

I've always been able to just take the receipt in and get the difference returned to me.

I would call the Costco that you are going to and ask them. I used to be able to just get a price adjustment with the receipt only, but recently I was told I would have to return the item, so I would check first.

When this happened to me I had to go and buy it with the coupon/sale price and then just returned it with the older receipt. I wish they could have just done an adjustment because then someone wouldn't have had to put the item away again. It didn't take long but I would do it as soon as possible as they are getting crowded for the holidays.

I think they have a 30 day price guarantee.
