How do I price match at Target?
Bring in your competitor store ad and checkout at customer service (some stores are capable of checking you out at the regular registers, but check first with customer service if it’s your first time price matching). The competitor’s ad must be local and current, and the product must be the identical item, brand name, quantity and model number. . . Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of competitive pricing.
Does Target do Price Adjustments?
In-Store purchases: Target will price adjust products purchased in the store anytime during the current sale cycle (Sunday-Saturday) OR the next week’s sale cycle.
Purchase on a Sunday (Day 1 of sale cycle) and you’ll have 13 days to price adjust.
Purchase on a Saturday (Day 7 of sale cycle) and you’ll have 7 days to price adjust.
Online Orders: The price adjust period is the same as in-store, but it must be a price found in weekly ad.
Competitor Ad Price Adjustment: Within seven days of purchase, bring your Target receipt and the competitor ‘s current printed ad.
Can I use Coupons when Price Matching?
Manufacturer Coupons: Yes! Target Store Coupons: Not really.
You may use a manufacturer coupon on a price matched item. Example: Kellogg’s Cereal $2.50 at Target, $1.50 each in the local grocery store ad.
Price Match 4 boxes of Kellogg’s Cereal $1.50 each
Use 4 $1.00/1 Manufacturer Coupons
Final Price: $0.50 each
You technically may use a Target store coupon, but not on the adjusted price. Example: Kellogg’s Cereal $2.50 at Target, $1.50 each in local grocery store ad.
Kellogg’s Cereal $2.50 each
$0.50/1 Target Coupons (adjusted before price match)
$1.00/1 Manufacturer Coupon
Final Price: $1.00— You see the better price comes as a result of price match, not Target coupon.
Does Target match online prices?
Other Important Target Price Match Exclusions:
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)
Competitor’s free product, buy one, get one, bundled offers, or special purchases
These exclusions cause a lot of speculation and situations where “Your mileage may vary”, meaning you may have different experiences with policy enforcement and different locations or even different days of the week! One common question is this:
Will Target Price Match a 2/$4.00 or 10/$10.00 price from another store ad?
I spoke with Target Guest Relations and was told that Target is aware this is not a crystal clear. Guest relations said it is left to the discretion of the store management. Your store may interpret it as a “bundled offer”, or they may not. In my opinion, it should be fine! And my Target allows it!
