First it was Best Buy and now Target has announced it will match select online competitor prices.
The company will match prices on identical items found on Amazon.com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com and ToysRUs.com.
The policy will be effective between Nov. 1 and Dec. 16. There has been no word about blackout dates.
Additionally, Target has extended the timeframe for its regular price match policy.
The store will match a price for a shoppers who buy something between Nov. 1 and Christmas Eve and then finds it on sale for less at Target.com or in a local competitor's printed advertisement.
The move comes a week after Best Buy quietly rolled out a first-of-its-kind online price match policy.
Best Buy's new policy is more restrictive than Target's, though.
It is limited to appliances and electronics which are immediately available and store employees are being instructed to grant the match on an individual "if asked" basis.
The company is also suspending the policy during the week of Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday, when the most competitive online prices are likely to yield the deepest discounts.
The consumer electronics giant has now released further details on which online retailers it will match.
"Best Buy will match the new, identical, immediately available current pre-tax appliance and electronics hardware products price for these designated major retailers: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, Circuitcity.com, CompUSA.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, hhgregg.com, hp.com, homedepot.com, lowes.com, newegg.com, officedepot.com, officemax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, Tigerdirect.com, and walmart.com. Appliance and electronics hardware products include audio hardware, video hardware, cameras, camcorders, desktop computers, notebook computers, e-Readers, tablets, TVs, MP3 players, small appliances, major appliances, gaming handheld devices and consoles. Best Buy will not price match accessories, during the return and exchange period or the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace Vendors) on major retailer websites. Valid for purchases made between October 7, 2012 – November 17, 2012 and November 27, 2012 – December 24, 2012. Best Buy may amend these terms at any time. All other terms and conditions of the Best Buy Price Match Guarantee apply. See Store for details."
