IT Foundations Price Guarantee

At IT Foundations we are continually monitoring our prices to keep a head of our competitors. This takes some time due to prices changing constantly and therefore impractical for us to offer the best price always. However, if you find the same product cheaper, supplied by an UK authorised dealer, brand new boxed and in stock, then we will try to beat the price by 10% of the difference previous to or at time of purchase. This excludes any grey imports.
