Target Coupon Policy
Target 101 resource for couponing at Target Stores. Visit Target 101.
Coupon policy lifted in its entirety from Target.com
Current as of June 12, 2011
Coupons are a great way to save even more when shopping with us, and it’s easy to use them at our stores.
• Target accepts one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon for the same item (unless prohibited)
• Super Target coupons can be used in any Target store if the store carries the item
• We gladly accept valid internet coupons
Because of the variety of coupons available to our guests, we do have some guidelines for how coupons can be redeemed at Target.
When accepting coupons, we use the following guidelines:
• We accept two kinds of coupons: Target-issued coupons and manufacturer-issued.
• We’ll accept one Target coupon and one manufacturer coupon for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits it.
• Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
• We can’t give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.
• We can’t accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in our stores.
• All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier while you’re checking out.
How does price matching work?
If you find an item in a competitor’s printed ad that is priced lower than it is at your Target store, we will match the price. The competitor’s ad must be local and current, and the product must be the identical item, brand name, quantity and model number. Target.com is excluded from our price matching policy. Competitor catalogs can also be ad matched as long as the catalog displays a valid date and meets all other qualifications.
What if I’ve already made the purchase at Target?
No problem. Within seven days of purchase, bring your Target receipt and the competitor ‘s current printed ad. We will reimburse the savings to you.
What qualifies as proof of a competitor’s advertisement?
Please show us the entire printed advertisement. Photos, photocopies, or mobile phone versions of the ad cannot be accepted as verification of competitive pricing.
What does ‘identical store item’ mean?
The program covers items with the identical brand name, size, weight, quantity and model number of the item at Target stores. We reserve the right to verify a competitor’s advertised price and the availability of the product.
Can I use coupons when price matching?
A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target’s normal coupon policy. When the guests presents a coupon(s), these steps will be followed:
Manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.
Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price.
Combining both a Target and Manufacturer Coupons:
The Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target 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 competitors coupon-required offers.
What do you mean by local retail competitors?
This refers to retail stores located within the same market area as a particular Target store. Examples of a market area can be a city, a metropolitan area or a specific rural region.

Target.com Pricing Information
All prices on our Web site are listed in U.S. dollars. Pricing, promotions, styles and availability may vary by store and online. Prices may be higher in stores located in Alaska and Hawaii.
Price Matching at Target.com
Pricing for products on Target.com may vary from Target stores and from the Target Weekly Ad. We do not match the price of our online merchandise with the price offered by Target stores or another company, and Target stores do not match the price of our online merchandise.
If you see a lower price listed in one of our Target Weekly Ads, we will adjust the price of your online order to match the advertised price if you purchased the item within 1-7 days prior to the ad; you contact us during the Weekly Ad where the lower price is featured; and the lower price is not on a clearance item.
We do not offer additional discounts on large orders of a single item or on large orders of many individual items. We reserve the right to limit quantities.
Target.com Price Reductions
A temporary price reduction advertised Sunday-Saturday and lasting up to 2 weeks.
Temporary Price Cut
A temporary price reduction lasting 1-8 weeks.
A permanent price reduction advertised for up to 90 days.
A permanent price reduction often on discontinued inventory. Clearance prices are good while supplies last.
Add to Cart to See Low Price
The “Add to Cart to see low price” message indicates a discount is applied to the item and is calculated when you add the item to your Cart. You can see the price by clicking the “Add to cart to see low price” link. Please be assured that simply adding an item to your cart does not obligate you to buy it–you can always remove the item from your cart.
Confirmed Prices and Pricing Errors
We cannot confirm the price of an item until your order enters the shipping process nor will we charge your credit card until your order enters the shipping process.
Please note that your Order Acknowledgment means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been shipped or that the price of an item has been confirmed.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our Web site may be mispriced. As part of our shipping procedures, we verify price before an item is shipped out.
• If an item’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and ship you the item.
• If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price we will cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation via email.
