But more and more retailers are willing to price match Amazon to stay competitive with the retail giant. This means you can get your items that same day from a local brick-and-mortar store while still being sure that you’re paying the lowest prices around.

Check out our list of some of the biggest retailers that will price match Amazon, in-store or online, so you never miss out on a deal!
For each retailer, we’ve outlined the basic parameters of their price match policies, as well as how you can have the price match verified.

Walmart will price match items that are in stock at local locations or at Walmart.com that are identical to the competitor’s listing.
But when it comes to Amazon, Walmart will only honor Amazon’s prices online, meaning you can’t price match a product to Amazon in-store.
The item must be the same brand name, model number, size, and quantity. Restrictions do apply, so visit Walmart’s full Price Match Policy to be sure.
For an online price match, contact Walmart.com Customer Care at 1 (800) 966-6546 and have them verify the item’s eligibility and the competitor’s listing.
Target will gladly match the price of an identical item from a competitor, as long as the item is the same brand name, size, weight, color, quantity, and model number.

To price match in stores, be prepared to present proof of the lower price. You can also bring in your original Target receipt if you’ve already purchased the item and want a reimbursement for the difference.

Getting a price match on an Amazon product isn’t as difficult as it may seem—it’s all about the fine print.
Be sure to double and triple-check a store’s price match policy and make sure the items you’re matching are eligible, in stock, and identical.
Also, make sure the item is sold and shipped specifically from Amazon, and not a marketplace seller, since most retailers won’t honor that listing. Good luck!
