One positive aspect that came from the failing economy is that stores are competing for our business. When you go into a store it is good to know their store policy. Many stores will price match an ad price or even a price found online. Check out the stores policy to get the best deal you can.  

Target price match policy- From November 1 – December 16, Target will match the prices found at select online retailers (see below).  You can show them the online price using your smartphone or customer service can look it up to confirm. Select retailers include:

Walmart price match policy- Low price guarantee just bring in competitors ad to match price.

Best Buy – will match the price if you find a lower price on an identical available product at a local retail competitor’s store.

Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us - will match competitor store pricing on ALL products in their stores.

Visit any participating Krispy Kreme location wearing your costume on Halloween and you will receive a FREE Halloween or Pumpkin Spice Doughnut. No purchase necessary.


During the World Series if a player steals a base, you will get a free Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell.

Ten free holiday cards from Ink Garden when you enter promotional code WinterCards at checkout. You will need to pay shipping. Plus receive 40% off the rest of your order with promotional code Cards40.
