Update: There is now a Target Web Coupon for $1/1 Q-Tips 285 ct + too!

The $5 Gift Card Deal wyb 4 select Unilever Products thru 10/22 just got a lot better thanks to a lower priced inclusion on the Q-Tips! Prices can vary by region, but here are a couple ways to get cheap or money-making Q-Tips at Target thru 10/22…

DEAL IDEA #1: Buy (4) Q-Tips 375 ct ($2.69) =$10.76
-$2.40 (use four .60/1 Q-tips® 300 ct Pack+ (30 Points on Recyclebank)
= $8.36 -$5 Gift Card Back wyb 4
= $3.36 for 4 or .84 cents each

And some of you will have been lucky enough to receive a Target insert in your 10-16 papers with a store coupon for Q-Tips to make it even better…

DEAL IDEA #2: Buy (4) Q-Tips 375 ct ($2.69) =$10.76
-$4.00 (use four $1/1 Q-Tips 375 ct+ Target Q 10-16-11 Unilever x11/13
-$2.40 (use four .60/1 Q-tips® 300 ct Pack+ (30 Points on Recyclebank)
= $4.36 -$5 Gift Card Back wyb 4
= .64-cent money maker after coupon and Gift Card

*NOTE*- Kelley just checked out after buying her 4 Q-tips 375 ct- and the Gift Card did not automatically prompt. So you will have to watch at the register, and possibly even refer an employee to the signs in order to get your Gift Card.

    I don’t have that many points on Recycle Bank but I was able to get the Target inserts so that means it’ll be 44 cents per box for me! :) Thanks so much Kerry!

  2. Brandi says:

    Yes, the small packs are included, but I had to go to customer service for my $5.

  3. Brandi says:

    Oh, and the 1 liter bottles of SmartWaters are also included in the 10/$10 sale and print the gift card. I’ll have a picture when I get home!

  4. Allie says:

    I did two orders on recycle bank, then forgot which one i printed, and they each printed twice! Different numbers on each coupon! I have no idea why but they are all legit, so i get to do this deal twice 😀

  5. Gina says:

    Who in GA got the Target insert this week in the paper?

  6. Joan says:

    Anyone have extras of the TQ and/or MQ that they want to trade me? Email me and [email protected] I have paypal for you or tell me what you want. Thanks, Joan

    How do the coupons print from recyclebank? I’ve now done 3 different orders (4 coupons total) and when it goes to confirm the order it deducts the points but doesn’t let me print the coupon. This is my first time redeeming something from recyclebank. What am I missing?

  8. Angela says:

    I’m on the same boat with MaryBeth… mine also didn’t print from Recycle back. Deducted 120 pts for (4) Q-tip coupons then I hit print and nothing printed. Ekkk!! Can someone please help us? Thank you!~

  9. Louisa says:

    Grrrr. I processed for 4 coupons and it didn’t print! And it processes 5 per account. I was able to print the last one 2x though. When it gets to the bricks page, copy the url, click print coupon and then paste the url, click print coupon. It gave me different number. 2 coupons for 30 points :) So, process to print 1 coupon at a time, copy the url to print a second time for only 30 points. Get 4 coupons for the price of 60 points instead of 120.

    Brandi mentioned about smart water for 50 cents if you factor in the target card. I saw sobe that were $1 and had 50 cents coupon on them. It was around the neck of the bottle. So you can get sobe for 50 cents straight out. No limit as long as you can find the ones with the coupon on them. I prefer filtered tap water myself.

    If you aren’t getting the print message, go to the top of your home page and click on “my account”. Then click on “transaction history”. Scroll down to where the reward for the Q’tips coupons is shown and on the right will be print reward.. I hit by backbrowser to get my second print. hth!!

  12. Kelly says:

    Suzee Thank you so much for that explanation! last night the Recyclebank site was running real slow and in the middle of checkout it timed out and i lost connection after ordering a 100 poin reward! i was not looking forward to having to email support waiting and waiting… you saved me the time!

  13. Penny says:

    I just went to print some Target coupons and there is one for $1 off 285+ count of Qtips!!!! This is great because I don’t use Recyclebank and I did not get any Target coupons in my paper!

  14. D. Pintarich says:

    There’s a 1.00 target on their website.

  15. D. Pintarich says:

    ooops I meant to say there’s a $1.00 off coupon on the target wesite

  16. JiJi says:

    I just printed the new Target coupon $1 off 285-ct. or lager Q-Tips cotton swabs. It states on the coupon ” Limit one coupon or offer per transaction”. I’m new here, can anyone explain to me if ok for me to use 4 $1 target coupons same time to buy 4 packs? Thanks

  17. Christy says:

    I don’t understand how you can get the Q-Tips for free by using 4 target coupons when the coupon states that there is a limit of one coupon per transaction. Someone please explain. Thanks!

  18. Ivana says:

    I was just able to print the q-tip $1 tq off the website

  19. Angela says:

    @Suzee — Thank you so much for your explanation!!… it worked like a charm!~ :O)

  20. lorie says:

    when you purchase the q tip coupon on recycle bank can you print it twice or just once. like can i purchase and get 4 prints or do i have to purchase 4 seperate?

  21. Kerry says:

    @Christy- the Target printable coupon limits you to one transaction- but the insert coupon does not. One of my favorite things about TQ coupons found in inserts. hth

  22. Ashley says:

    @Lorie- you can purchase 2 and print twice to get 4 total :)

    My Target only had signs up for the 750ct and 1000ct. And they were out of the Curel. Boo. Hopefully that means I’ll have double the luck for my next trip.

  23. Kathryn says:

    My local store had signs on this size, but when I checked out, and said they were supposed to have a $5 gc with those, she said “those are the 700 count, not the 375 count” I didn’t feel like fighting so I asked her to take them off. I may go back, because with the stack, these are only a dollar for this large box of them, which is a decent price since I pay $1 for 250 count at the dollar store. Anyone know how much the larger ones are at target???

  24. rome says:

    They toll me in my target that is for the Q-tip 750ct or larger, but they have the sign on all of them.

  25. Kristy says:

    My target had the signs above saying that the 375 ct. was included. When I went to check out, I was not given the giftcard. I questioned it. Right away the cashier pulled out the ad saying that it was the 700 count. I made her have someone walk back and check it. I did have to wait like 5 mins., but it was worth it to me. She did say she couldn’t give me the giftcard, but deducted $5 from my total. I was able to use 4 60 cent off coupons & 2 $1.00 off coupons…my target allows 2 of the same target coupon per transaction…many stores may not though. So I would have someone check the price in the store, if there is a sign then they probably have to give it to you!

  26. Janet says:

    I can’t find the until ever target q .. I have ss rp and pg insert

  27. dropofrain says:

    I bought four 375 ct boxes. When I was paying for them, I saw that the register prompted my cashier about a $5 GC. Yay! Very smooth transaction, thank you for posting. If only now I could find cheap deals on candy, sigh

  28. Janet says:

    unilever target q*

  29. AmyLynn says:

    seems the recycle bank coupon is gone :(

  30. Adm says:

    I had such a hard time with this deal at a target i never go to but they had the curel and would only let me use ONE coupon per transaction because it said “one coupon per purchase”! I called corporate in front of them and they still refused. I bought my lotions and took my coupons to another target where they gave me cash back.

  31. Mary says:

    I was able to purchase 4 375ctQ-tips, used 4 $.60/1 and 4 $1/1 Target q … came out to $.64 money maker! Register didn’t prompt for giftcard, but I went to Customer Service and Manager gave it to me, but said it should only be on the 700ct and that signs must have been misplaced. I wonder, since the signs are specially made for those specific items, if their not posted (even though they were produced) then is that due to Manager’s request?

  32. Lindsay Snodgrass says:

    AmyLynn is right, the coupon is no longer on Recyclebank. It’s only the coupon for the precision ones. Sad! I saw it last night and was going to get them today after I visited Target to make sure mine had the correct sale. Darn…

  33. Rebecca says:

    I did this transaction yesterday, bought 4 packages and used 4 Recyclebank coupons. I was very happy when the register automatically prompted for the gift card with no problem, because I *hate* wrangling about deals and there was a long line behind me. Well, when I gave the checkout girl my coupons, it beeped “item not found” for ALL my q-tip coupons. She said, “I know you purchased these, but if you want to use the coupons you’re going to have to give me back the gift card.” I just looked at her … she said, “Sorry, but I will get in trouble if I let you do this.” I said (firmly and I hope without *too* much irritation in my voice), “The promo doesn’t say anywhere that you can’t use coupons on the gift card items, so could you please call a manager?” She looked at me, then at the looong line behind me, and said, “Well, okay, I guess I can just push it through.” I felt bad, but also irritated because she pretty much made that rule up on the spot!

  34. Brianna S says:

    The Recyclebank coupon is still on there it is just 20 points more

  35. Kim B says:

    Argh. I should have printed those coupons at the beginning of the week. -_-

    BUT I have been getting $1 off (1) 170ct Q-Tips Precision Tips Catalina coupon from Target. That added to the $1 off (1) 170ct Q-Tips Precision Tips Manufactures Coupon from Recyclebank will be $2 off (1) total. I have no idea what these are priced at Target, but if the 375ct is $2.69 a 170ct should be cheaper, maybe even free then with the stack.

    Just a heads up. :)

    Recyclebank no longer has the $0.60/1 Qs it seems :-(
