JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Do you showroom shop? Do you know what that means?

That's when you're in a store like Best Buy, which according to a survey is the most showroomed of all retailers. Walmart is
the second most showroomed.

It's when you're walking around and you're looking for a sale, you pull out your smart phone and you comparison shop.


What happens next is you find cheaper prices somewhere else, you quietly order the item right there or you leave the store and order
it.


The number one place you order,
according to Consumer Reports, is Amazon.com, but I've got a tip for you about showrooming: More and more retailers will match the online seller.

There's a big electronics store I go to from time totime, and
when you walk in the door now, there's a giant banner that says "We match all competitors' prices" online or in store.

So if you are showrooming, you find that cheaper price somewhere else, see if they'll match it! Who knows, you might walk out with a
real deal.
