What do you mean by local retail competitors?
This refers to retail stores located within the same Canadian market area as a particular Target store. Examples of a market area can be a city, a metropolitan area or a specific rural region.

Can I use a coupon when price matching?
A guest can use coupons when price matching per Target’s normal coupon policy. We happily accept one manufacturer’s and one Target coupon per item. View our Store Coupon policy . Target does not ad match a competitor’s coupon-required offers.

These steps will be followed for price match when a guest presents a coupon(s):

– Manufacturer coupons: Manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.
– Target coupons: 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 price match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price.
– Combining both 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 new price, the price will be adjusted to match the competitor’s price. Once the price match is made, the manufacturer coupon will be applied.

    You are now in Canada; please learn to spell properly. Colour.

    • Jamie says:

      Well, if we’re going to be pedantic we might as well make the same comment about the Canadian spelling of catalogue too..

  2. DL says:

    Can’t wait until our local Target opens!! I love my coupons, so this is going to be fun. And frankly, I could care less about spelling errors. Lighten up. : )

  3. Kerri Drover says:

    No one cares about American/Canadian spelling anymore.

  4. Jill says:

    So if you price match AND use a Target coupon…what’s the point of using the Target coupon if they are only going to match the price and NOT apply the Target coupon after matching?

    • misskitty_79 says:

      Yeah, if price matching, don’t bother w/ Target coupons. Thankfully, they’ll still let you add a manufacturer’s coupon, unlike how Zellers used to make you choose between the two.

    • Josie says:

      I agree, that’s so stupid! Bring your Target Coupons to WalMart! 🙂

  5. Josie says:

    Limit of ONE Price Match!? 🙁

    Only good thing so far is;
    One Target coupon and one Manufacturer coupon!

  6. Tracy says:

    Well that sucks. I buy lunchables like crazy. One price match per item sucks and will force me to walmart for price matching or Superstore.

    • Olivia says:

      I think you and Josie misunderstood. The one item limit is for ONLINE advertised items. I think that print (flyers, etc) advertising does not apply. That’s the way I read it.

  7. kris says:

    At least you can use a manufacturer coupon and a target coupon at the same time! Sounds good to me.

  8. Kim says:

    I’ll continue to do my price matching at Superstore with the limit of 6 of each item

  9. Karen says:

    Don’t waste your time at Target. Go to Walmart, there’s no limit and they will take your Target coupons!
    I just came back from Target where I priced matched and because the items were below the price on the coupon, they wouldn’t let me use them. Walmart is the BEST!

  10. Agata says:

    Is it really true that the Walmart will accept the Target coupons?
