Looked up the price of a piece of electronic equipment on Target's website, checked it was at the local store then went down there to buy. The item was there but the price was 30% higher than the website.

We asked the person at the electronics section and he pointed to the customer service area at the other end of the store and said only they can do anything about it. Apparently they treat the webstore and the real store as two separate businesses and proudly consider it 'price matching' if they give you the web price from their own store. We won't shop at target anymore ..

who has the time to search their online store, line up at customer service and deal with the hassle just to buy at a reasonable price. 30% difference is significant!

Product or Service Mentioned: Target Website.

Reason of review: Pricing issue.

I didn't like: Pricing practices.

Not any store (not just Target) is allowed to match the prices on the store website. I'm sorry, but this is a company policy for most retailers and there is nothing anybody can do about it. That's just the way it is.

This is a common practice for all big box stores. The internet sale prices can and will be different from store promotions.

What's the big deal?

Just order it from the website instead of making a big fuss about it...... People need to relax and realize this is not a life and death situation.

Well being uneducated you obviously do not have a job, so you have time to go and wait in line to price match. You want to pay 30 percent less than you have to follow the rules. Following rules and following directions is something taught in the first grade.

Hmm. Most successful people are careful shoppers.

Whether a person is employed or educated is not the point, and none of your business. Comprehension and manners are also taught in elementary school.

Looks like you failed those lessons. You sound like an arrogant, misogynistic creep.
