How to Take Advantage of the Toys "R" Us Price Matching Policy

Driven into bankruptcy in the U.S. in 2018, the classic Toys "R" Us brand is coming back in a big way. Unfortunately, consumers will soon find that they cannot price match Toys R Us sales in either the U.S. or Canada.

The popular children's brand for toys was number one with parents until financial troubles hit. The company, now owned by WHP Global, maintains an active website via a partnership with Macy's stores. It also re-introduced itself in "pop-up" shops in Target stores. One of the biggest endeavors, however, is the opening of a brand-new store in the American Dream Mall in New Jersey.

In tough economic times, price matching appeals to many customers. Price matching refers to the retailers' promise to its customers in a competitive retail market. The price match guarantee promises that the retailer will match the price of a competitor if customers find a lower price on an identical product.

Trying to identify lower prices in all the stores that sell a particular children's product is a frustrating, and time-intensive, undertaking. No need to abandon the concept, though. DoNotPay is an automated, user-friendly, web-based platform that can help.

Does Toys "R" Us Price Match? 

Up until October 2021, the answer in Canada was yes. After October 2021, the Canadian website says it no longer price matches.

While the U.S. Toys "R" Us website does not mention price matching, the policy is potentially the same as its Canadian counterpart. Consumers may want to contact customer service to see if the company intends to reinstate its policies on a Toys R Us price match at a later date.

Alternatives to Toys "R" Us That Offer Price Matching

Various stores that sell the same type of products as Toys "R" Us provide price matching with their competitors. Examples of such stores include those listed below.

  • Walmart's price matching includes only items that list for lower prices on its online website compared to one of its Walmart stores. That's a significant rollback of its price-matching policy from past years.
  • Target's price match policy is generous. Target price matches to print advertisements from competitors within 25 miles of the local Target store. Consumers must request the price match within two weeks of the purchase. The store price matches with about 25 competitors, such as:
  • Amazon
  • Kohls
  • Sears
  • Walmart
  • Kohl's Department Stores will price match with competitors and also with Kohls’ prices. Kohl's does not price match with competitors’ online prices, though. The exception to that rule is that Kohl's will match prices for all kinds of identical products sold on Amazon.
  • Best Buy sells electronics. If you are considering electronics for your young student, Best Buy will price match identical products sold on Amazon and sold by Dell, HP, and certain local competitors for both online and in-store prices.

With any price matching offer, make sure to read the fine print for all the exceptions and documentation needed to claim the refund.

How to Price Match on Your Own

Finding price matches on your own includes poring over various brochures, mailers, advertisements online and hard copy, and website policies. Consumers can easily spend hours sifting through price information and checking product identity. That's discretionary hours that most consumers today do not have.

Price matching on your own also may involve playing phone tag with customer service personnel and special trips to local stores to talk to managers about the price matching policy. At the very least, it means reading through the policy provisions of various websites to determine the rules only to find the website doesn't talk about price matching.

All the above makes it seem like the reward isn't worth the effort you will pay in terms of lost time.
