How Does it Work?
If you have found a product that is identical (i.e. same name, model, colour) from another UK based mail order catalogue company, we’ll match the price at the point of ordering in two simple steps.
At the point of deciding to purchase, simply call our customer services team on 0800 042 2222.
You will need:
- the selected retailer’s name
- the product code or part reference (SKU)
- the web address or copy of the catalogue advertising the product.
Once verified by Consortium, we will reduce the pricing on our quote to match the selected retailers’ product price.
Please note that the product price must be valid and available at the point of purchase from Consortium.
Terms and Conditions
The RM EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES LIMITED trading as Consortium (“Consortium”) Price Match Guarantee applies to all products listed on www.consortiumeducation.com
Our Price Match Guarantee applies to any non-sale item on sale at Consortium and any of the Selected Retailers. Any items which are part of a Selected Retailer's promotions or are specially discounted are expressly excluded from our Price Match Guarantee.
Price Match Guarantee applies to orders made by phone only, not to any Consortium online sales.
The products that can be price matched must be: (i) identical (i.e. same name, model, colour and pack sizes and warranty) as those of the Selected Retailer; (ii) in stock (not just available to order); (iii) new, not damaged; and (iv) sold directly through one of the Selected Retailers in the UK in £GBP.
Products sold as part of a multi or kit deal will be excluded, unless it can be confirmed by Consortium that the pack sizes or bundle contents are identical to Consortium pack sizes or kits.
Our Price Match Guarantee means that if you find the same product cheaper in the UK from a comparative retailer, being a UK based, B2B catalogue/mail order, educational products supply specialist (such as HOPE/YPO/Findel/Amazon Education) (“Selected Retailers”) and available on standard terms and conditions of purchase, we will better that lower price when you order from Consortium. The Price Match Guarantee will not apply if the relevant Selected Retailer is in administration or closing down or offering clearance sales.
Price Match Guarantee excludes items sold through suppliers who trade on a different basis to Consortium, such as e-commerce only suppliers (such as Amazon Marketplace), auction/marketplace websites (such as eBay) or private sellers (such as Gumtree).
The price match will be given against the recommended retail price (“RRP”) for: exact matching branded products; and on own branded products which are like for like in pack size and quality.
Once an order is placed, this Price Match Guarantee cannot be retrospectively applied.
Application of the Price Match Guarantee must be requested by the customer at the time of order.
The Price Match Guarantee may not be used in conjunction with other Consortium promotions, discounts or voucher offers (including staff discount). Consortium reserves the right to exercise its discretion in applying the Price Match Guarantee in this way.
With regard to account discounts specifically, Price Match Guarantee cannot be used in addition to account discounts and will be taken in to account in the calculation of the price match i.e. if the price difference equates to 20% and the discount at account level is already 10%, a 10% product discount will be applied in order to meet the price match.
Price Match Guarantee is product specific and excludes overarching or store wide promotions, offers and discounts (including account discounts if applicable) by any Selected Retailer. We will not apply the Price Match Guarantee to multiple or whole order discounts from any Selected Retailers, only the individual price of the actual product.
*Consortium reserves the right to alter or withdraw our Price Match Promise at any time without notice. For full details of our Price Match Guarantee, please see our Terms and Conditions.
