Target’s New Price Matching Policy
Not only is the US chain of stores stepping up efforts to get shoppers to check out earlier this holiday season by rolling out their biggest markdowns two weeks in advance (the event started on November 1, 2020), but they’re extending also their price alignment policy. ICYMI, target customers have always been able to request a price adjustment on declining items from competitors like Amazon or Walmart (see full list of competitors here) within 14 days of purchase.
For the first time, the price match guarantee will be extended throughout the holiday season. How it works: Target customers can request a price adjustment on * any * item they purchased in store, if the price drops later during the holiday season through December 24. The extension only applies to products that Target themselves have marked down, but still. This gives customers the freedom to do their holiday shopping early without worrying that prices will drop later (which they likely will).
