    I am not a frequent TARGET shopper for many reasons -mainly distance and previous problems, I just happened to be with my daughter when she stopped there yesterday .
    Thanks for the ad rules ! - it was an ad that I normally take to Walmart
    Oh well I came out fine and got what I wanted/needed

    Target has so many exclusions on price-matching that I don't bother trying anymore. Customer Service team members say that if a Loyalty card is required, Target won't price-match ad prices. However, the Target corporate site states in their Exclusions: "Paid membership club or paid loyalty programs (e.g. prices that require a club or loyalty card that is associated with a membership fee)." Those would be BJ's, Sam's & Costco but not the grocery & drugstore cards where no fee is paid. Oh well.

    Faye - I have never had a problem price-matching and using a coupon until yesterday either I went to TARGET with my daughter . We had an ad to price match as well as a coupon for Scott Towels . The cashier studied the ad and coupon and said we could use one or the other but not BOTH !
    We left our items and went Walmart and used both price matching and coupon with no problem .( Savings Catcher may have "caught" the sale price ad but we had the ad so why not use it) .

    Can you use a coupon on a price matched item at any of the stores that price match ??

    Thanks for the heads up on the HT chicken Privileges! I was buying it even at $2.50 because the difference in the cost of gas would have negated any savings, but wasn't real happy about paying extra for it.
