So I have never actually asked a store to price match before - and I don't know what the limitations are.

meijer has a pretty sweet deal this week for SodaStream mix (attached pic).

Buy one at $4.99 and get 2 free. The only stipulations are "no rainchecks" and "while supplies last"

Question is will Target (or another store like Staples, etc) price match a deal like this?

I looked at the target policy here and still am conflicted.

They state under exclusions:

"Buy one, get one if the retail price is not shown in the advertisement." - so this seems like we are safe because the price *is* in the ad. Additionally, since they state here that they will honor BOGO type offers as long as the retail price *is* shown - I would expect them to honor it.

However the policy also states:

"Items advertised as limited time/limited supply/limited quantity." - Now the meijer Ad does state "While supplies last" - but isn't this really true of anything a store sells? I mean all sale type prices are generally only for a "limited time" and a store only carries so much "supply." It would seem that this exclusion pretty much is a catch all for Target to deny anything.

Anyone have insight into if this might be honored or not?

BTW - I ask this because I actually drove out to a meijer about 10 miles away and the didn't have the item (i.e. didn't carry it). I was a little pissed because on their online site I checked two stores: One store did not list this Ad as applicable - seemingly because they are grocery only. The second store (the one I went to) did list this in their Ad, and although they have a few isles of non-grocery - they still didn't carry this item.

I also didn't see any flyers at the local meijer - so I'm not sure this counts as a local printed Ad as per Target's other exclusions.

any assistance as to how I might be able to score these is appreciated!

Target probably will but you have to have a local meijer

You are kidding, right? That sounds like pretty desperate logic that a 5 y/o would use when caught in a cookie jar.

Good luck with that one!

No, because rainchecks exist.
