This is based upon my first Price Protection denial...
If you have any intention of submitting a Price Protection claim, make sure that the receipt does not have any indication that you got a promotional gift card or any other promotional item on it (even if the gift card/item is associated with another item on the receipt).
For example, Fry's and Target stores provide gift cards if you buy certain advertised items. Let's say item A comes with a gift card. You also buy item B (no promotion/giftcard/freebie for item B). If you submit a Price Protection claim for item B, your claim will be denied because of exclusion #14:
- "Items that are advertised as buy one, get one free or where the advertised price includes free offers or includes a bonus offer"
The Price Protection people will claim that since they can't tell whether the "gift card" is for the product that you are claiming, or the other item(s) on your receipt, they will automatically assume that it is associated with the item you are claiming, hence a denial of your claim.
Lesson: If you have any intention of submitting a Price Protection claim, make sure you purchase that item by itself. Do NOT have anything else on that receipt!
