Introducing the Winspire Price Match Guarantee

Posted by Summy Lau

At Winspire, we are constantly developing new auction packages and strategies that empower charitable organizations to raise more for their causes.

To that end, we are excited to introduce a new way to offer the best possible no-risk travel packages at your fundraising auction: the Winspire Price Match Guarantee!

Price Match Auction Travel Packages

What is it? Simply put, Winspire will match the price of any qualifying travel package that is offered for less through a competitor. Or, if we don't yet offer the package, we will create a similar experience so you and your winning bidders can experience our white glove service firsthand.

You have your choice of consignment travel providers. We hope the Price Match Guarantee shows Winspire's commitment to providing the best value and putting nonprofits first.

What is the Winspire Price Match Guarantee?

Winspire will now match the price of any qualifying experience that is offered for less through a competitor. For experiences that are not currently in the Winspire catalog, we will also do our best to create custom packages that match or beat competitor pricing.

How do I request a price match?

Before we can price match, we will need the competitor's name and documentation of the package. Please make sure proof of the competitor price is available through a publicly accessible website, advertisement or catalog.

Next, visit the page of any Winspire Experience for which you want to request a price match.

Click on "Request a Match" and fill out the form.

Once you submit a request, your Fundraising Specialist will be in touch shortly to review the details before submitting for verification to the Winspire product team.

What is your "Guarantee"?

We guarantee we will match the pricing of any package that has a similar scope with regard to the experience, accommodations and travel of an existing package.

However, if the package is too different or is determined to not be of enough value to sell at an auction, Winspire reserves the right to decline a price match request.

What if the package has the same number of room nights but is in a different hotel?

We anticipate matching the number of room nights or the certificate level of the accommodations (i.e. 3-star vs 4-star hotel) to be the most common price match request.

Our goal is to build the best possible package that raises the most money at a live auction. If we feel that modifying the accommodations will be detrimental to the package's ability to sell, we may advise against matching a package price.

Travel Auction Package Ideas

Will you price match a competitor's package not listed in the Winspire Catalog?

We will try. Our product development team will review each price match request to determine if it is within our capabilities to create a custom package that will match or beat the competitor's price.

Every Winspire Experience is no-risk, meaning they cost nothing upfront to use in a charity auction. The Price Match Guarantee strengthens our commitment to providing high quality travel packages you can use to meet and exceed fundraising goals.

Strategy that Can Double & Triple Revenue from One Auction Item

Consignment travel packages can be extremely lucrative for your nonprofit, providing the ability to sell incredible trips multiple times, at no risk to you or your organization. Doing so benefits your event in three ways: Increase revenue: Double, triple, or quadruple your profit on a single package. It's a win-win: Making Bidders happy means making your nonprofit happy.
