Right on the heels of its annual holiday toy list, Target announced today its plans for the 2013 holiday season, including daily deals on giftable items, in-store pickup for online orders, and expanded price matching. Here’s the scoop on each.
Holiday Price Matching
Normally, Target will match a competitor’s price for seven days after a purchase. For 2013, Target will price match for qualifying items purchased between November 1 and December 21. This marks the second year that Target has offered this expanded price matching policy for the holiday season. The exclusions are more or less what you’d expect – no sale items, nothing that’s advertised as being a “percent off”, limited time and supply, and typos. And, of course, Black Friday pricing is excluded. You can read the full details about Target’s Price Match Guarantee here.
In-Store Pickup for Online Purchases
Not to be outdone by rival Walmart, Target is offering same day in-store pickup for purchases made online when the item is in stock. This brand new program is already up and running in many Target locations and will be available in all U.S. stores by November 1. No word on how this might work with Black Friday, but our guess is that it won’t be available at times when stock is moving so quickly.
Up to 50% off Daily Cartwheel Deals
Target is pushing daily deals through it’s Cartwheel savings platform, taking 30% to 50% off different giftable items daily. These deals will only be good for one day throughout the holiday season. Target clearly is hoping to bring in new Cartwheel users and train shoppers to check the app daily. No word yet on the kinds of items we’ll see featured.
