The Curel Gift Card Deal is back- and this time there was no lack of signage at my store! It goes for quite a long time and the Target coupon is still available to print if ou haven’t already. I believe the smallest size on the Sensitive is the 7.5 oz for $6.54, in order to use the $2/1 coupon, but let me know if you spot a smaller Sensitive size at your store.

    On #2 do I have to worry about the glitch? Will I have to get extra items or watch the screen, or will this one be fine?

    I was so bummed. I actually found large sizes of the Sensitive on clearance for $4.19 each – plus I had the $2/1 coupons. I was feeling all proud of myself for finding this money maker, and then I allowed to do it :( The manager on duty told me that I could EITHER use the MQ’s OR get the gift card, not both. I felt like it was wrong, but they had tried to do it several different ways and the register wouldn’t allow it. I was sad, but I didn’t want to make a scene, so I just told them I didn’t want the lotion. I know I have used MQs with gift card deals before, so I was surprised…

    I had a weird experience. My MFQs worked fine this morning, but then this afternoon they wouldn’t go through and the computer said “coupon exceeds value”. The only thing I can think is this AM I may have given my MFQs first, then my Target coupons, where this afternoon I know she scanned Target first, then MFQ. They just marked them as Store Coupons and gave me the money off anyway.

    This was a bust at my store as well just now. First, they told me the clearance items didn’t apply to the gift card deal. Then I picked up the smallest one (which at my store was $4.29, not $3.79 as shown) and it prompted the gift card. I then handed her my 2 MQ and 2 PQ and when she scanned the MQ it said “Item not here”, so she looked at the coupon and told me I had to buy THE one item listed on the coupon. I said, “It says any Curel” and she said, “You HAVE to buy this one pictured.” She wouldn’t budge, I had three orders going and the line was backing up so I said forget it.
    This was Target’s “second chance” so to speak for me and they blew it. I was doing nothing wrong, but she acted like I was trying to pull one over on her and I don’t shop that way.

  5. janelle says:

    oh no! the dreaded “you have to buy what’s on the picture”! That drives me NUTS!

  6. It seems this printable is out of prints! :-(

    I had a similar situation. I had 2 manufacture Qs and 2 Target Qs. Got 2 Curel priced @ 3.79, went to the register, and the cashier scanned Manufacture Q and it said “Item not here.” So the cashier scanned Target Qs first, then tried to scan MFQ only to see a message that “coupon exceeds value” which was not. It would be exceeding value IF it includes Gift Card I got for this deal, and this is exactly the problem Target has. Target lists GC amount like “credit” which we CAN NOT USE for the transaction, but they still list it like “Credit.” I think that is the reason why Manufacture Qs would not be accepted. If Target lists GC amount like “Credit,” we should be able to use it for the transaction, but they will NOT allow it.

  8. janelle says:

    Kanako. Hmm. Interesting theory. But they also “charge” you for the Gift Card too. At least on my receipts it bundles it all into one transaction and shows a charge of $5.00 for the GC but then a $5.00 deduction, essentially making that equal. The MFQs shouldn’t have said “exceeds value” (which mine also did after she put in the Target Qs). Even after $1 off each one with a Target Q, there’s still enough value to take out the $1 MFQ.

    And what I find SO odd is that it worked for me in the morning, but in the afternoon is when I had the problem. I just looked at my receipt from the morning and it’s there, the $1 mfq attached to each bottle of curel. Idk.

    I just tried the Curel deal in Phoenix, AZ. I bought two of the $3.79 ones and had 2 Target $1 coupons and 2 $1 manuf coupons. No matter what my poor cashier tried to do she could not get the manuf coupons to go through. Looking at my receipt afterward I believe it was because the $5 for the gift card gets counted as a coupon and it won’t let you “earn” money from the coupons.
    What confuses me though is that she first tried scanning the manuf coupon and couldn’t get it to go through. The Target ones went through no problem. She even tried taking the Target coupons off and tried to manually push the manuf coupons through to no avail! Very frustrating considering I had perfectly good manuf coupons that they could submit and get the money for.
    The gift card counting as a discount only partially explains the problem. =( I still got two lotions for 58 cents though, so I guess I can’t complain too too much.

    I haven’t tried this deal yet, but maybe a missed coupon at customer service would be easiest? I did dozens of the Venus razor deals and was fortunate to have great cashiers and managers that were aware of the “register difficulties” and they just changed the prices of the items! This happaned at 3 or 4 stores. However, there are a couple of stores that seem to really dislike couponers. I tried to purchase 2 of the Beauty & The Beast DVD/BLURAY combos on the last day for the coupon to get the packages with the free cd. The cashier seemed to pretend to try to scan my coupon—no beeps, no prompts, etc…. She said …oh if it doesn’t scan we won’t accept it. Funny it worked fine at Wal-Mart 20 minutes later. She called over another cashier and made me feel like a criminal. If I were Target I’d be worried about a class action suit. I used to really enjoy Target shopping and it’s just becoming more and more difficult with the registers to use coupons. Funny they can take a 5.00 coupon and give you 2.00 for it while being reimbursed for 5.00 by the manufacturer, but anytime they have a gift card deal it’s a huge ordeal to check out even the simplest transaction. I was extremely lucky with the Venus deals———-I’ve never had that many understanding cashiers in a row before. :) I can’t imagine with the holidays coming how backed up lines will be with coupon disputes. It’s beyond ridiculous at this point. Sorry for the long post—-I guess I needed to vent. :0 At least we;re aware of the coupon difficulties……..think how many people don’t get the full value or any value for some of their coupons and never know!

  11. Kerry says:

    Hey Janelle- did you buy something else in the morning in addition to the CUrel?

  12. Janelle says:

    Think that’s the problem. They charge you $5.00 and deduct it. That’s when it makes look like customers would not be “paying” for the purchase. The $5.00GC shows up on your receipt like “Credit/Deduction” whatever you want to call it, but you are not actually using the amount toward the purchase. If only Target could figure out not to list $5GC as “Credit/Deduction” by bundling up, then I think this problem would not happen. At the same time, customers would still be paying before GC amount at the checkout (if there is any GC deals)…

  13. Kanako says:

    Stupid me… I used someone else’s name when I was trying to respond to janelle’s reply….. I am sorry…

  14. janelle says:

    A ha! I just saw the explanation on the first page! In the morning, YES, I did buy extra items! Which explains why my coupons worked. In the afternoon, I was doing the gift card deal only, which is why it didn’t. So weird that there is an “invisible $10 mfq” you have to factor in.

  15. julie says:

    target coupon not working…what zip did you use?

  16. Kerry says:

    still there- I don’t use a zip- but remember- once you print your limit- they will disappear and you can’t see them anymore- but they are still there for those that haven’t printed yet. (as of 10/20/10 2:42 est)
