Being able to buy the gift you so much aspire to at a lower price can be a reality. Currently, balances can be made at any time, as long as, in total, they do not last more than four months a year, so it is possible to save money with price reductions.

Of course, it is essential to make sure that the business is advantageous, and to that end compare the cost. All products must display, in a legible and unambiguous way, the previous price and the promotional price and, if any, the charges inherent in the sale of products under promotional conditions.

What should I know about discounts, promotions and price reductions?

The most common problems in this type of purchase are related to the exchange of goods and, especially in the case of gifts, the consumer must know that the merchant is not obliged to exchange the items sold, most of them exchange them out of courtesy. There's nothing like talking to the merchant and finding out about their exchange or return policy.

But if the good is defective?

The exchange is mandatory. The consumer has two months to report defects in movable property. Do not forget to keep the receipt with the price and itemization of purchased items to demand the fulfillment of this right.

Can the store refuse card payment?

Merchants are not obliged to accept checks or credit or debit cards, so both during regular and balance periods, these means of payment can be refused. However, such information must be displayed visibly to the consumer. If these forms of payment have been used in normal times, merchants are obliged to accept them in time of sales.

When your rights are run over, complain using the store's complaints book. You can also appeal to the Food and Economic Security Authority.
