I believe that is completely wrong. I have checked into this before. They will not match online prices that are out of stock for competitors, but it says nothing about their own store. Considering they completely call out that competitors have to have items in stock, but do not say target.com items need to be in stock, they should have priced matched your target purchase to target.com even if sold out. Perhaps try again, showing them the info below. I don't think I'm reading this wrong.

Limit of one competitor online price match per identical item per guest."
ETA: I found this one, and this one is less clear. It mentions 'sold out' in the fine print, but it is not clear if they are using that to reference competititors or not, especially since it still explicitly states online competitors/sold-out.
Note: I almost didn't see them at first. They weren't in the dedicated LEGO section. They had a few random clearance endcaps scattered throughout the entire toys section. There were some other LEGO sitting with these sets for 25% off, and these were the only 50% that I saw.
Hit 1 target today, nailed a Star Wars droid gunship 75042 for $35, 30 percent off
My Target had 30% off clearance, just some cruddy sets. So I was shocked to see the large flaming phoenix set at half off.. until I picked it up and it was obviously way light and tampered with. Not cool Target.
