Target Is Price Matching: The Rules







Target has a price matching policy.... Read all the details HERE


Price Match Guarantee

If you buy a qualifying item at a Target store then find the identical item for less in the following week’s Target weekly ad or within seven days at Target.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com, ToysRUs.com, BabiesRUs.com or in a competitor’s local printed ad, we’ll match the price. Price match may be requested at Guest Services prior to your purchase with proof of current lower price or by bringing in your original Target store receipt and proof of the current lower price.

Price Match Guarantee: the details

■The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity and model number.

■Limit of one competitor online price match per identical item, per guest.

■Price must be valid at the time the price match is requested.

■Retail price must be shown on the website or print ad. Online prices will be validated by a Target team member.

■Competitor online items must be in stock at the time a price match is requested.

■Competitor catalogs can be matched as long as the catalog displays a current date, retail price and meets all other competitor ad match qualifications.

■If item is not available in a Target store, a rain check will not be issued to match the online price or competitor’s print ad.

■We reserve the right to verify a competitor’s advertised price and the availability of the item

What qualifies as proof of a price?

■For printed ads: please show us the entire printed advertisement. Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions (of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of a competitor’s printed ad.

■For online prices: please show us your mobile device or a printout from a qualifying competitor’s website or Target.com. A Target team member will then verify the match using a Target device

Can I use a coupon when price matching?

A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target's normal coupon policy. When the guest presents a coupon(s), these steps will be followed:



■Manufacturer coupons: manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.

■Target coupons: Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price.

■Combining both Target and manufacturer coupons: the Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.

■Reminder: we accept one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item unless either coupon prohibits it. Target does not ad match a competitor’s coupon-required offers.
