Price Match Policy

Today shopping online is all about convenience. With literally hundreds of places to shop selecting a trustworthy company can sometimes be a challenge. Some online shops are good and some are less than reputable, some have been around for years and others just sprouted up overnight.

We want to be your first and last stop on the Internet when you are looking for aquarium supplies from a dependable company at competitive prices. Save time, money, and headaches with the AquaCave's Price Match Guarantee.

You will find our online prices to be VERY competitive. But if you discover one of the items we sell at a competitor's website for less, just let us know and we will do our best to match that price, as long as the offer is in accordance with the guidelines we have with our manufacturer.

Competitive prices, friendly assistance, reliable service, and experience are the differences you'll find when you shop at


We make it simple with our No Question Asked Price Match Policy:

  2. Once your request is approved (usually takes just a few minutes during business hours) you will receive an email with a personalized coupon code that you can use at the checkout to automatically adjust the product price before you submit your order.


Our Price Match Policy:

The item you would like to price match must be the identical product, including model, color, packaging, manufacturer, etc. The price you wish us to match must be verifiable (on a public Internet site, in a catalog, or in a newspaper advertisement). The product needs to be in stock and available for sale. Lower price needs to be within the manufacturer's MAP if applicable. We can only match prices with other authorized vendors, and we cannot price match used products or products listed on auction or classified ads sites.

In order to match a price, the competitor's shipping and handling charges and sales tax must be taken into account when we calculate the competitor's price. "Gift-with-purchase" offers cannot be considered in the price match calculation.
