Does Walmart Price Match Target? [All You Need To Know] 

Walmart, one of the largest retailers in the world, takes pride in its low-cost items and offers price match guarantees to customers who find the same items sold at other stores for lower prices.

Since Target is a major competitor of Walmart and sells similar products for lower prices as well, you may be wondering whether Walmart will price match Target products? Here is what I’ve found through my research!

Does Walmart Price Match Target In 2021?

Walmart will only price match items sold on walmart.com with those on target.com as of 2021. You can submit a request by contacting Customer Care before placing an order. Walmart will not price match Target store prices, sale items, or ads that cannot guarantee the original price.

If you want to know more about the requirements the item must meet for your price match request to be accepted by Walmart, whether Walmart will price match Target shipping fees, and much more, keep on reading!

How Do I Price Match Target Items At Walmart?

You’ll need to shop online at Walmart.com to request a price match from Target.com. Simply contact Walmart Customer Care before placing your order and an associate will make price adjustments, refunding you the difference.

The product must be identical in size, model, quantity, brand, and color to pass verification. Additionally, the item must be in stock at Target.com and Walmart.com at the time of the request. 

Walmart limits price match requests on single items to one per person per day, however, this limit does not apply to residents of New Mexico unless the purchase is for resale.

Does Walmart Price Match Target Ads?

Walmart does not price match Target ads when the original price is not guaranteed.

Additionally, Walmart does not price match promotional advertisements on multi-buy deals such as:

  • Buy One Get One Free
  • Spend a certain amount to qualify for a free gift
  • Buy an item to reduce another price

If Target.com advertises a specific item at a particular price in stock at Walmart.com, a price match may be granted unless the ad has expired.

Customers do not need a copy of Target’s advertisement, however, valid promotions must come directly from Target.com.

Does Walmart Price Match Target Sales?

Unfortunately, Walmart does not price match the value of items in Target sales including offers promoted with percentage or dollar deductions.

Moreover, Walmart does not carry out price matches on Pre Black Friday sale events, Black Friday, or Cyber Week sales. Other than that, items in a clearance, flash, limited quantity, or closing down sale at Target will not be price-matched by Walmart either.

Can Walmart Deny My Target Price Match Request?

Can Walmart Deny My Target Price Match Request?

Walmart can deny your Target price match request at any time when you are shopping at walmart.com.

For example, price match requests with Target coupons, bundle offers, and in-mail offers will be denied by Walmart.

Walmart can also deny requests that show discrepancies between both products, i.e. only totally identical items will be accepted for price matching.

Walmart’s price match policy disallows price match requests on items sold by third-party merchants on Walmart Marketplace. Additionally, Target store prices will not be matched to those in Walmart stores or online.

Can I Price Match Items I Have Already Purchased At Walmart? 

You cannot price match items that have already been bought at Walmart because Walmart needs to process price match requests before the payment transaction is processed.

Note that items purchased on Walmart.com or other online retailers such as Target.com can not be returned/refunded after a price match.

Does Walmart Price Match Target Shipping Fees?

Walmart will gladly price match Target shipping, handling, processing, and hidden fees on the individual item.

However, if your order also contains other Walmart.com valued items, the overall shipping cost can not be determined and your price match request may be denied.

Does Target Price Match Walmart?

Target.com does price-match Walmart.com, but you only have 14 days to request a price match.

Similar to Walmart’s policies, Target’s price match policy requires the item to be identical in brand, size, weight, color, quantity, and model number. Target will not price match Walmart items that are on sale and advertised with no evidence of the original price or coupons.

To get a price match on a product, all you need to do is contact Target.com Guest Services to assist you with your request.

Conclusion: Does Walmart Price Match Target?

Walmart does indeed price match Target for all items sold through each company’s online platforms (store-to-store requests are not accepted).  You can contact Walmart Customer Care before checking out to request a price match. Requests for sale prices, coupons, and advertisements without a fixed price will not be accepted by Walmart along with those for used, damaged, or refurbished goods.
