So I talked about this in the Coupon Preview Post on Friday- but in case you missed it- starting today, hopefully many of you will have received the $1/1 Gas-X Coupon in your Smart Source insert. There is a stack available with a $3/1 printable Target Coupon too. The 18 ct Chewables are $3.99 at my store- so it makes for a great freebie.

Gas-X Chewables Extra Strength 18 ct box $3.99 (Regular Price)
-$3/1 Gas-X or Maalox ETS Target Coupon PRINT x12/4
-$1/1 Gas-X product 11-7-10 SS x1/8/11
= FREE after a stack

This deal is ALSO a great filler when doing Gift Card Deals to work in your favor against the GLITCH. Each deal will give you an extra $2.99 worth of merchandise value to use other manufacturer’s coupons against, ($3.99 – $1/1 MQ). This is because Target coupons don’t impact the glitch and can work to get your total down BUT ONLY IF YOU HAND OVER YOUR TARGET COUPONS LAST!

I wanted to provide a couple of examples for you too. I realize not everyone has the same prices or can use 2 like Target coupons in one tranny, and not everyone will be interested in the same products- but I hope it helps give you ideas of how to make fillers like this and Target coupons work in your favor. (if you are unfamiliar with the deals listed below- please see the Special Deals Page)

When doing a $5 Gift Card Deal, your total using manufacturer coupons cannot fall below $10. HOWEVER, Target coupons are unaffected by the glitch as long as they are used LAST and can help to bring a total down…

PONDS DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Pond’s Towelletes Bonus Packs ($5.19) = $10.38
Buy 1 Gas-X Chewables Extra Strength 18 ct box ($3.99)… TOTAL = $14.37
-$3.00 (use two $1.50/1 Pond’s Cream, Towelette or Cleansing Product ETS HERE
-$1.00 (use $1/1 Gas-X product 11-7-10 SS x1/8/11
= $10.37 (I am safe since my total after MQs is at least $10. Now come my Target Coupons...
-$3.00 (use $3/1 Gas-X or Maalox ETS Target Coupon PRINT x12/4
-$2.00 (use two $1/1 Pond’s Facial Care Item ETS Target Coupon
HERE x12/4
= $5.37 (my total was able to drop below the $10 thanks to my Target Coupons, Plus I get back…
– $5 Gift Card Back (for buying 2 Ponds Bonus Packs
= .37 cents for 2 Ponds & a Gas-X after coupons and gift card.

CUREL DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Curel Ultra Healing Lotion 6 oz ($3.79) AND
Buy 2 Gas-X Chewables Extra Strength 18 ct box ($3.99)… TOTAL = $15.56
-$2.00 (use two -$1/1 Gas-X product 11-7-10 SS x1/8/11
-$2 (use two $1/1 Curel Moisture Lotion 3.5 oz or Larger, Manuf Site
= $11.56 (I am safe since my total after MQs is at least $10. Now come my Target Coupons...
-$6.00 (use two $3/1 Gas-X or Maalox ETS Target Coupon PRINT x12/4
-$2 (use two $1/1 Curel Skin Lotion ETS Target Coupon
PRINT x11/27
= $3.56 (my total was able to drop below the $10 thanks to my Target Coupons, Plus I get back…
– $5 Gift Card Back (for buying 2 Curel
= $1.44 Money maker after coupons and gift card.

*I hope some of you found this helpful even though you may have to shuffle things around depending on how your store allows you to use Target coupons. And I do plan on getting together another post with more new cheap finds with new coupons soon… so stay tuned! 😉

    Kerry, Thank you so much for showing these deals this way. I have been frustrated with this glitch lately and twice have had to purchase items I don’t want only to later return them so that I could have the necessary overage to use all my coupons. That is my measure of last resort as I hate having to return things. This is an option that will allow me to do these deals without the other hassle. Thanks again for all you hard work on our behalf!

    I have avoided the “glich” by taking my kids with me… they always find something. LOL!

  3. Kerry says:

    LOL Dee Dee!! 🙂 & Glad it helped Marcia 😉

  4. Chandra says:

    I did the Ponds deal and it worked beautifully. Thank you so much! Reading your site has made Target downright enjoyable to shop at, even despite the gift card glitch. Everything is going much more smoothly for me there, and they’re one of my best stores now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. Kari C says:

    Doesnt the Ponds Target coupon read limit one per transaction? I thought they beeped.

  6. Meghan says:

    I think using more than one Target coupon at once is a YMMV. There have been times that I have used 4 of the same Target coupon in a single transaction and I have NEVER had a problem (no beeping or anything)!

    Dee Dee: You’re SO RIGHT every time I take my 12 years old daughter with me, to do my shopping at Target, I have no worries about the “glitch”. She always find MANY things too LOL!!! But I’m not so sure which one is worse my girl or the “glitch” ; )

  8. Pam says:

    My target informed me that I cannot use a target coupon with a gift card deal since those count as a target coupon. I did one and it beeped (had plenty of other items to offset) and when I took it to customer service she informed me that they do not accept both. She was nice enough to still give me the gift card that time. Just thought you may want to check this out at your target stores.

    I went to do the Gas X and Ponds deal today and I added an extra item that I needed. The coupon for my extra item wouldn’t go through, so I told the lady to take out my extra item and ring it up seperately b/c the gift card deal was not allowing my other coupon to go through. She new of the glitch and told me that they were going to be fixing it this weekend!!! She said she didn’t know this was happening until recently and good thing they are going to fix it. I was able to do both trans and get the stuff I needed without a problem! Thanks for your great work in saving us money. By the way this is the Target in NewTampa, Florida. I don’t know if they will be fixing all of the systems in all of the Targets. We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed and see. 🙂
