I know some of you are super-frustrated about not being able to print some coupons at Target.com that you can clearly see, and I can definitely understand the frustration. In my opinion, the software Target uses to power and or update their coupons has much room for improvement, but it is what we have and what we must make do with.
It is pure speculation on my part, but I believe this sometimes happens when a coupon has reached its overall designated print limit. And while it would be nice to know with maybe a statement across the coupon like “print limit reached” or for them to disappear completely like they usually do, it’s not always what happens. Instead, one is left scratching their head at the message that appears saying you’ve already printed your limit when in fact you may not have printed at all.
I am fairly certain that at this moment in time- no one will be able to print any of the following coupons that may still be visible and perhaps driving you absolutely crazy right now. If you are seeing others that won’t print for you either- try going straight to Target.com and then scrolling down to the coupons link at the bottom of the page. Even if that clears some of them for you, it is likely you may still end up with the following visible but non-working coupons…
$2/1 Bed Pillow (Fieldcrest Luxury, Room Essentials or Target Home) Target Coupon x8/13
.75/1 up & up™ First Aid Item ETS Target Coupon x8/13
$1/1 up & up™ Item $3 or Higher Target Coupon x8/13
$1/2 Sandwich Bread AND Eggs Target Coupon x8/13
$5/1 Room Essentials® Bath Furniture Item Target Coupon x8/13
Sometimes it takes as long as a day or two, but they usually eventually disappear, and rarely return in the near future. So while this post certainly doesn’t solve your problem about printing the coupons, you at least know that you are not alone, and you didn’t do anything to cause it. It’s just an unfortunate batch of what I like to call “ghost coupons” that you can certainly see, but will likely no longer become a printed reality for anyone.
My best advice? Target usually issues new coupons in the wee hours on Sundays. I work hard to sort them all out and publish them sometime Sunday morning. If it’s possible, you should print whatever you think you may have interest in right away. While some new coupons sometimes pop up here and there- I try and post about any new ones as soon as I see them. But the majority of their coupons arrive Sunday morning, so it’s a good time to check in and see what’s new and what you may want.
