Target announced today that they will be continuing the online price matching policy in stores.
They launched this over the holidays as a limited time promotion and it looks like they have decided to continue the policy year round.
They will match the following stores:
They will also match their own web site.
Here are a few other notes:
- There is a limit of one identical price match per customer. The item must be in stock online to get a price match from a retailer listed above.
- They will not honor 3rd party merchants selling items on the sites above (mostly that applies to Amazon.)
- To get the price match you need to pull up the competitor’s offer on a mobile device or print it out and take it in with you. If you print it out, they are supposed to confirm the price is still the same at the time of purchase.
- If you have a manufacturer coupon, you can use that after the competitor price match is done. Target coupons are still supposed to be applied before the price match.

On a personal note, I have always found price matching at Target to be a bit of a hassle. You need to take the item to customer service before you pay for it and then give them your phone or your print out. I matched a movie offered by Amazon during the holidays at Target and of course my phone lost signal as I was waiting in line and then I had to go outside to get signal again and come back in once I pulled it up. All in all it took about 10 extra minutes of time (not including waiting in line) to do the price match but they did do it for me.
