45-Day Price Protection

zZounds guarantees the lowest delivered price -- even up to 45 days after your order ships.

If you see a lower, publicly advertised delivered price, we'll beat it. If it is within the 45 days after your order ships, we'll refund you the difference.

We aim to review major, national catalogs and competing websites so that when you order from zZounds, you can be confident that you're getting the best possible deal.

What is the delivered price of an item?

The delivered price of an order is the entire cost to you: Identical merchandise plus identical shipping method charges. If a competitor's product is $5 less but charges $30 more for shipping, we've still got the lowest price.

What is identical merchandise?

Our guarantee applies only to identical merchandise. The merchandise must be factory-fresh, new inventory offered by authorized U.S. retailers in accordance with their dealer agreements in their own sales channels (in a store, on their official website, catalog, or newspaper ad).

If you find a lower price somewhere else, there is typically a reason; not all merchandise is identical, and not all dealers stand behind their goods as an authorized U.S. retailer entitling you to full warranty on a product. But do shop carefully: often you'll find our prices on factory-fresh merchandise lower than so-called bargains on second-rate merchandise in other venues.

Are there any exclusions?

  • We cannot beat competing offers on any Apogee, Bose, or Rivera Amplification product.
  • We cannot sell a product for less than it costs us to buy it and deliver it to you.
  • We reserve the right to limit quantities of price-matched items.
  • We will not engage in bidding wars with our competitors.
  • We do not price-match offers on used gear.
  • We do not price-match offers on a price that is no longer current.
  • We do not price-match offers on a product that you cannot currently purchase.
  • We do not price-match offers from classified ads, eBay, or auctions (open or closed), regardless of whether the merchandise is new or used.
  • We do not price-match offers on discontinued items, closeouts, demos, or items out of the box (even from authorized dealers).
  • We do not price-match offers mentioned to you only verbally, whether in person or on the phone.
  • We do not price-match offers advertised only within an individual store (such as on an in-store sign or price tag).

What evidence is required for a price match?

To verify that the competing offer meets the criteria outlined above, we will need sufficient evidence. This varies from circumstance to circumstance, but an example of commonly accepted evidence is a link to the publicly advertised price on an authorized dealer's website.

How do I get zZounds to match or beat another price?

If you have not yet placed your order, you can report a lower price via the Web by clicking one of the "Seen it for less?" links on our product pages. Just find the product you're looking for, click the "Seen it for less?" link for the specific item you want, and fill out our easy-to-use LOWEST PRICE form. During regular business hours, we'll send you an email with our LOWEST PRICE offer, along with a link for redeeming the offer, in a matter of minutes. Or, if you prefer to speak to one of our musician customer service representatives, please give us a call toll-free at 866-zZounds (866-996-8637).

How do I get the difference refunded on an item I've already purchased?

Please give us a call toll-free at 866-zZounds (866-996-8637) or email us. The difference in price will be refunded to the card that was used to place the order. If the order was placed on our Play as you Pay plan, the difference in price will be refunded to the owed balance.

What can I do if I don't feel zZounds has lived up to their Guarantee?

If you ever feel we have not lived up to any of our Guarantees, we want to know about it -- and we want a chance to do right if we agree. Contact us.

We cannot discount an item if the resulting price is less than it costs us to buy it and deliver the item to you. In the event of incorrect pricing due to human error, we will do our absolute best to take care of you, but we cannot always honor the incorrect price.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
