If you’re wondering Does Target Price Match with Coupons…  the answer is Yes and No.  

  • YES you can price match at Target with various local and online retailers.
  • YES you are allowed to use a manufacturer coupon after the price match, to get an even better deal.
  • And YES you are technically allowed to use a Target coupon as well.

 It just won’t make any difference if you use a Target coupon or not.  Why?

Here’s the Target Price Matching with Coupons policy  - note the highlighted part:

  •  Manufacturer coupons: manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.
  •  Target and Cartwheel coupons: Target and Cartwheel coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target and Cartwheel coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price.
  •  Combining both Target, Cartwheel and manufacturer coupons: the Target and Cartwheel coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target and Cartwheel coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.
  •  Reminder: we accept one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item unless either coupon prohibits it. Target does not ad match a competitor’s coupon-required offers.
SO here’s what will actually happen, if they apply discounts in the order stated in their policy.

Let’s say you found Tide on sale for $3 at K-Mart, and you want to price-match it at Target (where it costs $7).  You also have a $1 off Manufacturer coupon.  You also have a $1 off Target Coupon for the Tide.  And just for fun, let’s say you even have a 5% OFF Tide Cartwheel coupon. ;)  Ready?
  1. You take the Tide to customer service and ask them to Price-Match K-Mart’s ad.  They can pull K-Mart’s ad up online right there, or you can bring in a current paper ad.
  2. FIRST, the $1 Target and 5% Cartwheel Coupons are applied to the Tide, making it $5.65.
  3. If the competitor’s price is STILL lower, the price-match will be applied.  Making it $3.
  4. Lastly, Manufacturers coupon are applied, making it $2.

The Price-Match negates any Target coupons – you only get a price-match if the competitor price is still lower after using any and all Target coupons in your arsenal.   So just save yourself some time and leave those Target Q’s behind when going in for a price-match deal!
