Here is a very sweet instant savings deal at Target on Diet Pepsi Skinny Cans & People Magazine. I saw this deal on Sunday and had no coupons on me, so I did not try it. But my buddy Amanda agreed to test it out for me today and she just confirmed that it does in fact work at the register.

-Thanks so much to Amanda of A Few Short Cuts for being my Lois Lane today! :)

Now for me- I only had a little sign by the Diet Pepsi Skinny 4-packs, and nothing else- but Amanda found a whole display and on it was the Special Issue featuring Elizabeth Taylor for $4.99. It is possible it works with regular People Magazine too which is $4.49, but she tested it with the Special Issue, so let me know if you guys have luck with the regular People too.

Now even though it is possible for Special Deals can vary by region- even if you don’t see signs- you can take a 4-pack and a People up to GS and ask them to see if it takes off the savings for you before you purchase to see if your store is participating. So here’s the details on this great deal…

    It might just be the Diet Caffeine Free kind, but it rang up for $1.50 when I bought them Sunday and today.

  2. Brandi says:

    I’ve been wanting to use the bogo coupons but can’t find the skinny cans anywhere! Bummer!

  3. Lisa says:

    Is there any deal for the $1 target coupons with the chips and pepsi?

  4. Deb says:

    I know! I haven’t been able to find these skinny cans either!! Does that mean my target might carry them?

  5. Laura says:

    THANK U….Now I may actually find the SKINNY CANS!
    Don’t think I will purchase magazine though….

  6. Sarah says:

    Sorry this is off-topic but… Can I get a rain check for gift card deals? I have ordered coupons and I don’t know if I will get them before April 9… Thanks in advance for any help! (I am doing the Charmin deal)

  7. HANNAH says:

    does it include all editions of the people magazine or just the normal one?

  8. Susan says:

    I’m so ticked! Had trouble with my printer last week. While testing it I picked random Target Q’s (read People Magazine) to try and print thinking “eh, I’ll never want that Q”!….Well here you go, now I want it and I’m out of prints! Just goes to show, you never know when you might need a coupon!

  9. Emily says:

    I did this deal today and was so excited to find it! I’m going to do it again with my second set of q’s. Does it say how long the promo is going til? I didn’t pay attention when I saw the sign and I can’t tell from your picture if it states when it goes thru.

  10. molly says:

    my target only has the 8 packs of these :(

  11. lily says:

    did this today too! reg people mags work and they were 4.49 here but I’ve read some areas have them for 3.99 so free after q’s.
    my people mag had a $3 physicians formula cosmetic item coupon in it (store coupon!) and $2/1 1ct or 2ct reach total care+ whitening toothbrush manufacturers coupon!

  12. Christy says:

    I did the pepsi deal and it worked out great. The caffeine free diet pepsi cans were only 1.50 in my store. I used the b1g1 coupon. Great deal. Thanks!

  13. Heather says:

    Went today and did this deal, some people have been able to get the regular People magazine but I had no luck, had to go to customer service and fix it. Since I did the second scenario with 2 magazines, the Elizabeth Taylor one worked fine, guy at guest service said that it was the only one it worked for. He gave me a refund and we did the transaction over. By the way I am in MA, so it may work in other states for the regular monthly edition but check at customer service first.

  14. Che says:

    I did this deal last night the people magazine rang up for $2.99 (had a coupon for $2 off) and the pepsi for $1.99 (had the coupon for B1G1) at my Target. I had to go to the cashier for the $3 off because it wasn’t in their system somehow. They gave me back the $3 cash. Thanks for sharing this!

  15. Kerry says:

    It is so funny how regular people is working for some and not others. hmphhh. also find the regular price variation $2.99 – $4.49 for a regular issue quite amazing. Glad you all are having some luck finding this deal!

  16. Randi says:

    Just got back from my Target, but no deal for me. They are advertising the People on sale for 3.99 and then $3 off if you by skinny cans, but I looked all over and could not find the skinny cans anywhere. :(

  17. valerie says:

    i did this deal today and only paid .67 cents for each item. amazing deal! and the soda tastes so yummy!

  18. Tracey says:

    I was able to get two 4 packs and 2 People magazines for free. :) $12 total with $12 in discounts!

  20. Cassidy says:

    I did the 2nd scenario this morning… i got the normal issue, the style issue and 2 normal skinny diet pepsis for around $3.50… (it only took one $3 off… running late for work so i didnt protest it)

    I found my skinnys on a random endcap at the very bottom in the grocery section… not where i expected it to be… and noooo signage :)

  21. Tami says:

    Did this scenario this morning. My Target had a huge end display with the promo advertised. They even had the People magazines with the display. I used the B1G1 Pepsi and the $2.00 off People. When the cashier scanned the People a .50 Target q printed out. She grabbed it and scanned it for me. So, 1.99+1.99 for the Pepsi, 4.49 for the People — then B1G1 Pepsi -1.99, -2.00/1 mfg q People, -.50/1 Tgt q People and -3.00 instant savings = .98 for everything (plus tax on the magazine). So, .33 per item. Great deal — Thanks!

  22. sheri says:

    I just did this deal in KC but a little dissappointed. Got the 2 skinnies and regular people. The People had a sign that said it was 3.99 but when I presented my $2.00 of People coupon, the cashier said she could only give me 1.49 off since it was already on special. OK, no problem. Then I just looked at my receipt and was charged 4.49 for the mag! So instead of paying .98 I paid 1.98. Still a good deal but wish it would have rang up correctly!

  23. kate says:

    I just did this deal & it worked fine. I got four pepsis & four people mags. The cashier wasn’t very happy with me though. In a not very nice way, she said “what are you going to do with all these magazines”. I told her I was taking them to a nursing home. There wasn’t a limit on this offer was there?

  24. Erin Rose says:

    I did this deal today. They had a big end cap with both People magazine editions and both the Diet and Diet Caffiene Free there. I got two caffeine free ones. They rang up as $1.50. I got the regular edition of the People magazine which rang up as $4.49 and the $3 didn’t come off. So, to customer service I went. Got a sweet retired lady employee who really didn’t know what to do. She refunded my magazine and then charged it again as $1.49. She was so confused. Oh well, I got my magazine and 2 Pepsi skinnies for $1 after all coupons. I don’t even read magazines. But will bring it to work as I am sure some parent or teen girl will want to read it (I work at a Children’s Hospital).

  25. Jen M says:

    Did this deal today – there was no signage regarding the saving $3 wyb Pepsi skinny and People. The Pepsi skinny and People mag were on an end cap in grocery. The magazine was $4.49 and it had Reese Witherspoon on the front cover. Total oop for 2 magazines and 2 skinny Pepsi was like only $1! Awesome deal – there are some coupons inside the magazine too.

    does anybody know when this deal ends?
