Get a price match guarantee 

What some shoppers fail to realize is that Target offers a price match guarantee too. You can request to get a price match from Target whenever you see that the item you purchased is cheaper. For the item to be eligible, it must be: 

  1. During the 14-day window from the time you purchased the item
  2. An identical item, brand name, size, weight, color, quantity and model number
  3. In stock at a lower price at the time of return at a list of competitors Target match
  4. Lower on or in your local Target store 

How to request a price match

Once you determine if you can get a price match, there are just a few steps to do this in-store or online. If you’re doing this in-store, here’s what you should do: 

  1. Request a price match at checkout
  2. Bring proof of the price you want to match — the entire printed ad, digital ad, or retailer’s primary website (photos or photocopies are not accepted)
  3. Bring the original receipt if you already purchased the item

Online is a bit easier but your options here are to either call or chat with a representative. You can do this by:

  1. Chatting with Target representatives online or calling 800-591-3869
  2. Having the current price you want to match — the digital ad, approved retailer’s website, or Target store price (photos or photocopies are not accepted)
  3. Having your order number and item information ready from the start
