Target has a new Competitor Price Matching policy!

Monday, July 20, 2009 Hand-posted by Jennifer


Have you taken advantage of the Competitor Price Matching policy at Walmart before?  I haven’t.  I rarely shop at Wal-Mart now that I started using coupons because of all the other coupon-friendly stores in my neighborhood like Kroger, CVS, Walgreens and Target. 

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great policy for alot of reasons but it was always last on my list of things to take advantage of until now.  Target is starting to price match!  What!?  I think this is awesome news because I make it to Target alot more often than I do Wal-Mart. 

Here’s the scoop from Andrea at Mommy Snacks:

From the Target Press Release:

As of July 12, Target stores nationwide will match advertised prices from competitors on identical items in local markets, assuring guests that our products are priced right.

The Press Release goes on to say that if you “find a lower price on an identical single item – defined as the same brand and model number that is listed on a local competitor’s printed advertisement, during the effective date of the ad – we will match that price.”

Also, you can get a price adjustment if a competitor has an item on sale that you purchased at Target. The catch is you must have made the purchase within 7 days of the competitor’s sale/ad date.  Just take a copy of the competitor’s ad and request your adjustment. 

I suggest printing off a copy of this press release and keeping it in your binder. If you do want to price match at Target and they are unaware of the new policy, you can share the information with them.

Kudos, Target! We are definitely going to *Expect More* and pay even less!

Now, if they’d just take competitor coupons I’d be an even happier camper.  LOL!  Thanks Andrea.
