Did you know alot of stores price adjust items that go on sale within 14 days after you have purchased your item? If you bought an item and within the next 14 days it then goes on sale, you can take your receipt back to the store and they will scan it and give you the price adjustment. Below is a copy of Old Navy's price adjustment. You can also go to this link and get a copy of their policy: http://oldnavy.gap.com/customerService/info.do?cid=3317&mlink=3325,1959829&clink=1959829

So if you every buy anything and find it cheaper later have the store scan your receipt to see if you can get a price adjustment. Seems like I always buy something and then it goes on sale a few days later. This way I can still get the sale!
