Is Target Cheaper Than Walmart?

Discount Retailers Faceoff: Target Prices Beat Walmart

We generally associate Walmart as the ultimate retail store for bargains, but Target prices are actually lower than Walmart's, CNN reports. Although the difference doesn't seem to be all that much, it might matter to frugal shoppers who are counting pennies.

In fact, the surveys that observed the price disparity noted that this year's January and February prices for Target items have been slightly cheaper than Walmart's, which traditionally has not been the case. And if you add in Target REDcard's five percent member discount, you'll be saving even more — the gap between the Target and Walmart prices increases to almost six percent.

Are you surprised by the results? Which discount retailer do you prefer: Walmart or Target?

I love Target just because the ones located by me tends to be cleaner and better organized. This is again wholly dependent on the location of said stores. There is one Target that is almost on parity with the grosser Wal-Mart. But there is two Wal-Marts that is on parity with the Target that I frequent but they are quite a drive from me.

I've always loved Target, their products are better than Wal-Mart. Target has printable coupons on their website which makes the price even lower.

I think Target can have higher quality products, but their prices (at least for what I buy) are always higher than Wal-Mart's.

Not at all. I've noticed that prices were higher at Walmart, especially by unit price.

It is a bit surprising that Target is cheaper. If you print out's coupons to use at the store (or online) you'd be saving even more!
