Does Target Price Match Lowe’s? (Full Guide)

Target sells a variety of home improvement items such as tools and plumbing in-store, online, and on the Target app, offering to price match any items sold for lower prices by its competitors.

Since Lowe’s is a major competitor of Target in the home improvement category, you may be wondering if Target will price match items sold by Lowe’s? Here is everything I’ve found out about this!

Does Target Price Match Lowe’s In 2022?

Target will price match items sold by Lowe’s within 14 days of purchase as of 2022. You must provide printed or digital proof of a better price for an identical and in-stock item at Lowe’s to Target either in-store or online. Target does not price match discounted or on-sale items.

What Is Target’s Price Match Policy For Lowes?

If you come across an item at Target that is being sold for a lower price at Lowe’s, you can make a price match request to Target for the difference, offering proof of that lower price.

However, if you cannot provide sufficient proof of the price match with Lowe’s or you are trying to price match too many items, Target can reject your request for a price match.

To get a price match, all you have to do is bring printed or digital proof (such as showing the Lowe’s website on your mobile phone) of a lower price at Lowe’s, and Target will match that price for the item.

This can be done either as you purchase an item or up to 14 days after you’ve bought the item.

Note that Target will only accept your price match request if the item you viewed at Lowe’s is identical to what Target is selling.

This means that the items must have the same brand name, weight, color, and size, be of the same quantity, have the same model number, and be in stock at both Target and Lowe’s at that time.

What Is Target’s Price Adjustment Policy For Lowe’s?

You can price match any item at Target if it is available for a lower price at Lowe’s within 14 days after your purchase.

For example, if you buy an appliance at Target for $600 and then discover within 14 days that Lowe’s was selling the same item for $550, you can visit (or call) Target and request a price match.

Note that you must bring your original receipt or packing slip to Target along with proof of the lower price, and get back the difference of $50 through the mode of payment you used.

Which Other Retailers Do Target Price Match?

Target stores in Alaska and Hawaii do not provide any price matching service, and so you will not be able to price match any Lowe’s items if you live in those locations.

Additionally, Target also cannot combine its own store coupons (such as Target Circle coupons) with a price match, although it may be possible to use a manufacturer’s coupon with your Lowe’s price match.

You will not be able to make any price match requests on the Thanksgiving holiday and through the entire week after Thanksgiving.

The following types of items and deals are not eligible for price match requests at Target:

  • Clearance
  • Damaged
  • Promotional
  • Optical
  • Product services
  • Clinics
  • Pharmacies

Note that Target does not give rainchecks on out of stock items, so you won’t be able to get a price match for an out of stock item when the item is back in stock at a later time in either Target or Lowe’s.

How Can I Price Match Lowe’s In A Target Store?

A price match for a Lowe’s item can easily be completed in any Target store by using any checkout lane.

Simply bring valid proof of the lower price to the checkout counter and the Target employee will independently verify the price and make sure the items are identical.

If the price match is approved, you will only have to pay the lower price or will be refunded the difference in case you already bought the item earlier.

Note that Target does not accept photocopies of advertisements or screenshots of the product listing as valid proof for a lower price.

How Can I Price Match Lowe’s On Target.com?

You can make a price match request for items sold on Target.com by contacting Guest Services at 1-800-591-3869 and specifying the item sold by Lowe’s at a lower price.

The Target employee will independently verify the lower price and upon approval, reduce the price you have to pay on Target.com or guide you about how to obtain a refund if you’ve already bought the item.

Does Lowe’s Price Match Target?

Lowe’s does price match Target, according to its liberal price match policy that states that Lowe’s will price match any local competitor or online retail competitor.

All you have to do is provide evidence of a cheaper price in-store or online of a better deal and Lowe’s will be able to price match that item and refund you the difference.
