So, how confused are you by the Target Low Price Guarantee (Price Matching Policy)? I know it is so hard to understand. In fact, even Guest Relations is confused – how’s that grab ya? I actually called them today as the way that deals are happening in the stores is NOT as it is stated on the website. So, I just wanted to re-iterate it again to everyone. Ready? Read on!
The best way to Price Match is to just checkout like normal. Go through the regular line and pay for your item – using your Target and/or manufacturer’s coupons. Then, take your receipt to Guest Services and they will price match it down. Keep in mind that the Target coupon is to be deducted before price matching and the manufacturer’s coupon is after. This is how it is written in the policy and how it should be done.
However, if you take your item to Guest Services to checkout, the result could be different. When the product is price matched and all coupons deducted, you can end up getting the item price matched and then having the Target and manufacturer’s coupons deducted. Are you confused yet? I know I am.
When I spoke with Adam at Target Corporate this morning, he was actually not even aware of the new policy, but explained that if people are getting the item for a better price than what the policy states, then the error is in their favor. So, if you get a deal where the Target coupon is deducted after price matching – then you are a lucky one!
I will clarify that when I post any price matching deals, they are all written based upon Target’s policy and not what you may or not have happen at Guest Services. So, you might get a better deal than what I post, and that would be why. Hopefully Target gets this fixed so that the confusion can stop.
OK, I think I need a nap now – my brain hurts from thinking.
