We got this in our inbox today:

I tried to find this info on the Target coupon policy page, but I couldn’t.  I was trying to price match at Target the other day.  I had the entire ad with me.  I was trying to match toothpaste that was 2 for $4 (or something like that). I was buying the right toothpaste and the right size.  I was also buying two.  They informed me that they don’t match “2 fors.”  They wouldn’t give me a reasonable explanation.  Any idea if this really is policy?  And do you know why?  I always thought 2 for ___ or 10 for ___  meant you could buy that many, but didn’t have to.  (Just the store’s way to try to get you to buy that many.)  Thanks for all you do!

Target’s official price matching policy does NOT exclude “2 for $X” offers.  The only possible explanation is if the ad said 2/$4.00 with a limit of 2 per customer. For some reason Target won’t price match when there is a quantity limit.

The following is a full list of exclusions:

  • Online prices, including Target.com
  • Promotions or products advertised on another company’s web or mobile sites, even those advertising in-store prices.
  • Timed events (e.g., early bird, door busters)
  • Items advertised as limited time/limited supply/limited quantity
  • Membership club or loyalty programs (e.g. prices that require a club or loyalty card)
  • Coupon-required or giftcard offers
  • Prices advertised only as a percent off or $ off
  • Competitor’s free product, buy one, get one, bundled offers, or special purchases
  • Mobile coupons
  • Sales tax promotions
  • Damaged product or opened packaging
  • Clearance or closeout items
  • Mail in offers or instant rebates
  • Product services (warranties, assembly, etc.)
  • Going-out-of-business liquidations
  • Special financing
  • Used or previously owned items
  • Display merchandise
  • Pricing or typographical errors
  • Owned brands (i.e., Home, Merona, Circo, Market Pantry and Archer Farms)
  • Non-branded items (e.g. produce not marketed under a specific brand name)
  • Target Portrait Studio, Optical, and Clinic offers
  • Expired Ads

This is the PERFECT example of why we should print the policy and carry it with us! Go HERE to print the Price Matching Policy!
