* {{Expy}}: ''Price'' has done two games prominently involving bargains Barker's Bargain Bar (now simply called Bargain Game) and $uper $aver. The bonus round of ''Hunters'' is very close to the latter, which involved picking four grocery items marked down to various degrees and trying to save a certain amount...except ''Hunters'' was competitive and didn't have a target amount.

In case you haven't noticed yet, that "certain other game show" was most likely ''ThePriceIsRight'', but that's just the tip of the iceberg every round was followed by a "Bargain Shopper" segment, where the show magically turned into the Home Shopping Network (Oddly enough, HSN also had its own game show, ''The Home Shopping Game'', in syndication [[DuelingShows at the same time]], alongside the absolutely terrible ''ShoppersCasino'') and offered viewers a chance to buy an item from the preceding round at a discount by calling the onscreen phone number.

* ProductPlacement: ''Price'' has PromotionalConsideration in its prize descriptions pretty much by design, but they don't turn into QVC and give you a phone number to buy prizes from the show. That said, the current Home Participation Sweepstakes ads mention "money-saving third-party offers" but never specify, and there have been special occasions where Drew does a "Everyone in the StudioAudience got this cool thing from that special guest; go to our website and you can enter to win one of your own" plug. But nothing quite like ''Hunters''.

* '''Bargain Busters''' - the players tried to correctly guess the closeout price a certain store gave a stated item; best-of-three game won the game and the prizes.

The three winners then played the final round, Super Savers, where each player chose three bargain-priced prizes from a group of seven. The player who saved the most won the three prizes they chose, plus a grand prize.
