Target is holiday price matching so you get the best deals at their stores. Before you start shopping make sure you know the price matching policy. If you don't get it right, you won't get the deal. The policy is very specific.

Target's holiday price matching starts November 1st and ends December 24th. Target will price match printed ads and online prices from Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com, ToysRUs.com or BabiesRUs.com!

In a nutshell, you need to know:
  1. Hold on to your Target receipts, if you find an identical item for less at Target, Target.com, or in a competitor's local printed ad you can price match it.
  2. All price matching must be done at Target's guest services desk.
  3. No price matching on 11/22/2012 - 11/24/2012.
  4. Make sure your match is exact. The size, quantity and everything needs to be an exact match.
  5. The sale price must be valid at the time you want to price match. If you bring in a sales ad from 2 weeks ago and that sale is over, you won't be able to match that price.
Target's Printed Ad and Online Price Matching Policies:

Printed Ad Price Matching

  • Must bring in original Target receipt when requesting the price match by Dec. 24.
  • The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity, and model number.
  • For matching Target.com, the retail price must be shown on the Target.com website and must be valid at the time the price match is requested. Target.com pricing must be validated by a Target team member.
  • For matching competitor ads, the retail price must be shown in the competitor's advertisement and must be valid the day the price match is requested.
  • Competitor catalogs can be matched as long as the catalog displays a current date, retail price and meets all other competitor ad match qualifications.
  • Price matches for prices offered Nov. 22-24 by Target, Target.com, or a competitor, are excluded
  • Target reserve the right to verify a competitor's advertised price and the availability of the item.

Online Price Matching

  • Excludes "Marketplace" prices: Price matched items must be sold by Walmart.com, Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, ToysRUs.com, or BabiesRUs.com; prices from 3rd party sellers on these websites will not be honored.
  • Excludes Target stores in Alaska and Hawaii.
  • Limit quantity of 1 online price match, per identical item, per guest.
  • Must bring in original Target receipt when requesting the price match by Dec. 16.
  • The retail price must be shown on the competitor's website and must be valid at the time the price match is requested.
  • The item must be the identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity, and model number.
  • Online prices from Nov. 22-26 are excluded.
