Extreme Couponing Tip: Target Price Matching Restrictions

Basic Restrictions: Target will not price match online prices, limited quantities/timed sales, percent off deals, clearance items, or generic store brands. To price match, the items must be exactly the same (brand, weight, flavor, size) as advertised in the other store’s ad.

Differences from Walmart: Ad matching at Target must be done at the customer service desk, you must have the ad in hand, and you cannot match non-branded items (like per pound produce or meat) or prices that require a store club/loyalty card. Target also does not accept competitor stores’ coupons.

Local: All price matching must be from current local ads. Ask your local store for who they consider their competitors (may be a list of stores, a city limit, or mile radius).
