Amazon already does this year-round. Plus they match Target's gift card program (like buy an x-box get a $50 gift card). Amazon will do this on their own vs. the customer initiating.

The article gives no details as to HOW Target will "match" online prices. It talks about matching printed ads, but online merchants do not generally have printed ads. So what kind of Target hoops do you have to jump through to get a price difference refunded? Or are refunds not in the picture, i.e. you have to see the higher price online and then not buy it and go back to Target and tell/show them the other price and then they will sell it to you? Seems a ridiculously impractical hoop-filled policy which no one in their right mind will want to spend time during the busy holiday season taking advantage of, but a good PR move by Target nonetheless. I guess.

There is no such thing as identical products for the most part. Vendors create special part numbers for different retailers so even though that TV is exactly the same it will have a different ID number for every retailer that carries it.

So for all your complainers, would it be better if Target didn't offer this at all? I shop at Target all the time, so hopefully I will be able to take advantage of this promotion. If you think it's a bad deal, continue to do your shopping on Amazon, eBay, or Craigslist.
