actually agree to their policy.. we found it was remarkablelykabl easy. we sent our shoppers into dozens of area stores and for some ofe them dozens of locations of thef same chain and found that fornda the most part we just had tot t ask.as it wasn't just -- it wasn't wai' for manager and ask. ask. some stores we were able to gett them to match right at the cashs register. >> really. >> by showing them the loweringe price on our phones.ho >> some stores we had to go to o customer service desk which ikch thought that's a pain.t at's who wants to do that.o wantto d but it was usually one minute oe wait and the person right them t and there gave them the lowerow price.pr the key is, we found some of sef these stores really the savingss really add up. a u i mean for some of the things w were testing them on. on. speaker system, for example, at, best buy we got them to give uss a price that was $140 lower. >> come on. on. >> vacuum cleaner at bed bath bt and beyond we saved 70 bucks0 b right there off.here o we got amazon's price 70 bucks lower.r. >> okay. >> so we got these lower pricesp saved a lot of money. we didn't really waist that much time having to get t
it. didn't really have any troublesb except at one chain home depotet was -- it was really not easy tt get home depot to do it. to do you had to bring a manager overn and when the manager came over o often the manager didn't known't their own policy. polic most of the other stores weer so tested and we testified dozens d it was quite easy.. and saved, you know, fair amouno of money.of money >> war the exceptions here? >> so there are some rubs here. >> okay. >> one is, if you -- if they're' price matching amazon part ofzor their policy, they'll only match amazon's price, not a third a party seller's price. >> okay. >> they also -- they won't matcm a price if it's discontinued oro on clearance which is unfortunate they phrase it thatt way that's very ambiguous that t mean a special order, a special product.prt. they only match specificcifi products so if that vacuumt v cleaner at target is a targett exclusive color vacuum cleaner, you might not be able to get a t them to match that item becausem it has to be the exact same it

>> processed ham i'm going sayai the bread is 500 i'll going 7500 >> reporter: two slices of hamch is about a thousand.an so you put the ham on the breade and you've got your full day d allotment of sodium. sodm. and that's really the problem il these hidden sources on soup, s whether it's canned or in the bag, you know that when you loou at the labels on soup that you u have to be careful.ar this bag of soup is 1580-milligram of sodium. and that's more than your day'ss allotment.. the other thing when you go toyu sandwich shop you don't think -i you think kind of healthy lunchl and maybe it could be. cou but remember you got the bread,e the lunch meat and some otheromo forms of sodium happening inpeng between the bread and so this is going to probably be close tose your full day's allotment this little 6-inch sub of sodium. the thing is, steve, it's not is just for people who have highe h blood pressure but taking in too much sodium can affect yourr systems, make you bloated.oulo nobody wants to be bloated. pizza, pepperoni is the bad guyb on the pizza and the cheeseshe cheese and the bread -- actuall
