target-price-match
With the holiday season approaching, Target has made some improvements to its Price Match Policy and they go into effect today! First of all, Target has expanded the list and added 24 more stores, including Costco and Sam’s Club. Here’s the full list of competitors:

Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, BedBathBeyond.com, Bestbuy.com, BN.com, Buybuybaby.com, Costco.com, CVS.com, Diapers.com, DicksSportingGoods.com, Drugstore.com, Gamestop.com, JCPenney.com, Kmart.com, Kohls.com, Macys.com, Newegg.com, Officedepot.com, Petco.com, Petsmart.com, Samsclub.com, Sears.com, SportsAuthority.com, Staples.com, Target.com, Toysrus.com, Ulta.comWalgreens.com, Walmart.com and Wayfair.com.

Target has also doubled the timeframe for a price adjustment to 14 days, both in stores and online at Target.com, which means, if you see a lower price, you have two full weeks to come back for the adjustment.

The complete policy can be found HERE, but here’s a few key points to remember…

  • The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity and model number. It must be in stock at the time of Price Match.
  • We match Target.com prices on in-store purchases and in-store prices for Target.com purchases. In-store price matches from other Target stores are excluded.
  • Price matches and adjustments will not be allowed for prices from Thanksgiving Day through the Monday after Thanksgiving, whether offered by Target or a competitor.
  • Alaska and Hawaii Target stores are excluded from price matching online competitors.
  • No rainchecks will be issued for items out of stock at Target or Target.com.
  • Limit of one price match per identical item per guest for online competitor matches.
  • “Marketplace” prices and prices from third party sellers will not be honored.
  • Cartwheel offers and Target coupons cannot be combined with price match.
  • Manufacturer coupons will be applied after a price match is made per Target’s coupon policy.

stride-puppy

UPDATE: Well it looks like we lost our manufacturer’s coupons now plus the price has gone back up on Amazon. 🙁 Hopefully some of you were able to grab this deal while it lasted.

If you have not been able to grab a deal yet on the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Stride-to-Ride Puppy Ride-On toy that regularly sells for $44.99 at Target, you can grab it for just $14.99 after Price Match. Right now Amazon.com has it listed for $24.99, and you can price match it at Target and use a $10/1 Stride-to-Ride Puppy manufacturer’s coupon to get it for just $14.99 after coupon and price match.

To price match, bring your item & coupon up to Guest Services and show them the price on your phone, however they will likely verify on their own device. If you have any trouble their complete policy can be found HERE which clearly states that you can use a manufacturer’s coupon when Price Matching.

A NOTE REGARDING PRICE MATCHING & TARGET COUPONS: There seems to be some confusion lately regarding the Target Corporate Low Price Promise policy which can be found HERE, specifically the use of Target Coupons. I am the first one to agree that the way the policy is written regarding using Target coupons on a price match is horrible- and should simply say No Target Coupons on a price match. But instead, the policy states that Target Coupons are to be used BEFORE a price match is made, not after. While the wording may be a little confusing, it is essentially saying the same thing.

It means the same thing no matter how you slice it- no Target coupons on a price match. No matter how they try and dress up that no, it is still a no, and it is published for all to see. So in keeping with their policy, please understand that is why all deals posted on TT will follow these terms.

-Thanks for the heads up on the Amazon price to Janae of Keeping Cents!

Target Gets Ready For the Holiday Shopping Season

This year, Target is offering customers several ways to shop and save money including in-store, online and with a mobile device. You can take advantage of their newly upgraded low price promise, shop for top toys with FREE shipping, get advance notice on Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and more.

If you have the Target App on your smartphone, all these features become even more convenient. You can learn more about the Target App HERE and add it to your phone for FREE. You can also text “APP” to 827438 (TARGET) to receive a download link. Target is also providing FREE Wi-Fi this holiday season in all its stores.

ONLINE PRICE MATCH: There’s been a couple of temporary improvements to Target’s Price Matching policy that have some nice perks. For starters- from now thru December 16th, Target will price match its online competitors, including Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Bestbuy.com, Toysrus.com and babiesrus.com. Customers will only need to show the online price for the item using their smartphone or ask customer service to look it up. Typical rules will apply (no B1G1, no % Off etc) and you should be able to price match within 7 days of your purchase. Also remember that manufacturer coupons can be used on items you are looking to price match, but Target coupons cannot be used.

HOLIDAY PRICE MATCH: Although online prices won’t be honored past 7 days of your receipt- there is also Holiday Price Match. This special holiday policy allows anything you buy in-store at Target now to be price-adjusted all the way up until December 24th. (excludes online price matches and Black Friday ads). You may have even noticed this advertised on page 11 of this week’s (10/28) Target ad.

So for example if you buy a Wii Game for $24.99 at Target today and see it in a Walmart print Ad on December 20th for $19.99, you may go up to GS with your receipt and a copy of the Walmart ad and you will be refunded the difference of $5. Target will also honor a price adjustment on its own print ads – but no online prices so no Target.com. Again- only manufacturer coupons can be used on a price match, store coupons are out.

FREE Wi-Fi AT TARGET: One of the ways the online price matching can get easier for those of you with poor phone reception in Target is FREE Wi-Fi now available at many stores. To connect to Target’s FREE Wi-Fi service, just check your phone’s settings for Wi-Fi. Your phone may be different, but for me, Wi-Fi has to be turned ON and then I select “Ask to Join Network”. Target will then prompt with a screen asking you to “Agree to Terms” before connecting you (scroll down to see “CONNECT” button.

I have found that Target limits your connection time, so if you find yourself having trouble, just go to your Wi-Fi setting, select “Target Wi-Fi” and agree to terms again. Note: If you need assistance connecting, I would ask for help in the Electronics Department. I have found them to be pretty helpful.

FREE SHIPPING ON ALL TOP TOYS: Target is featuring 20 top toys this year that all ship FREE regardless of whether you have a REDcard or not. Aside from FREE shipping when ordering on Target.com, you can also check out these toys in the store. Just look for the signs that say “Top Toy and on each one there will be a QR code that can be scanned with the Target App on your mobile device. This way you can purchase the toy directly with the app and ship it for free to anyone, anywhere in the U.S. This is also convenient for those of you who find yourselves having to shop with your children most of the time. You will be able to shop for a gift without them even knowing you’ve done it. 🙂

BLACK FRIDAY ALERTS: You can also sign up to receive Special Text Alerts from Target for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, plus exclusive offers and weekly ad reminders all year long. Just text the word “DEALS” to 827438 (TARGET) or go HERE and click on “Sign Up” and complete the short form. Message and Data Rates may apply.

TARGET 2012 HOLIDAY TOY BOOK: The Target Toy Book for 2012 contains some very nice coupons this year! This book showed up for many of you as a home mailerand many of you may have also gotten this book in your 11/4 Sunday Newspaper.

USUALLY we see the book put out in stores, and the ads for the weeks of 10/28 & 11/4 stated to look for these books in store. However, this year, according to a comment left on the Target Facebook Page, they will not be offeing this book in stores. But if you did not get the Target 2012 Toy Coupon Book in your 11-4 Newspaper or by mail- you can ask the cashier at checkout. Each cashier should have a scan sheet in order to apply the coupon to your purchase. This is what I have heard will happen this year since it looks like the toy books will notbe put out in stores this year. For more information on the coupons available this year- see my post HERE. There are 12 coupons inside -worth $63 in savings! There are also codes for these coupons that you can use online. For a current list of online coupon codes for Target.com- check out the Coupon Codes section on my Target Coupon Page.

Target to Price Match Online Competitors Starting 11/1

Watching the news last night I was pleasantly surprised to hear some pretty cool Target news! They announced that for the first time, they will match prices with select online competitors between Nov. 1st and Dec. 16th. Customers will only need to show the online price for the item using their smartphone or ask customer service to look it up. These online retailers include Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Bestbuy.com, Toysrus.com and babiesrus.com. Sounds very cool to me! There was also an article that Gerard saw in the Washington Post if you want to check it out HERE

To make it easier to check online deals with your smartphone, Target has started providing FREE Wi-Fi in its stores with plans to have it in all stores for the holiday season. FREE Wi-Fi also makes it convenient to use Target’s mobile app, redeem mobile coupons and scan QR codes. If you’re not familiar with QR codes, its short for “quick response code” and works like a bar code that you can scan with a camera-equipped smartphone for more information. For example, the Target mobile app can scan a QR code on a product and give you price, details, etc. Don’t you just love technology?! 🙂

-Thanks Gerard of Clip and Follow!
