The Target Toy Book for 2014 should be starting to show up in some mailboxes very soon. This year there are only 4 coupons inside the 2014 book -and while that may not seem like much- there are a couple very nice ones that are very general – a 25% Off Toy Department Item and a FREE $10 Target Gift Card with Toy Dept Purchase $50+. The toy book also advertises an opportunity to save 50% Off with Target Cartwheel on a different toy everyday from 11/1 – 12/24!
For the last couple of years, Target has not had the books in stores, but instead – in addition to home mailers, we should see this toy book show up in home delivery versions of Sunday newspapers, but possibly in newsstand papers too. We also saw mobile coupons last year and printables, so while I hope we can all get our hands on a tangible book this year- even if you don’t I am sure there will still be a way for all of us to save.
Here is a list of the coupons in this year’s book…

We seem to be seeing more and more manufacturer coupons on coupons.com with strong marketing suggestions on them to redeem at certain retailers like Walmart & others.
While I know it can be somewhat confusing- these are manufacturer’s coupons that should be able to be used elsewhere. I am thrilled to see that Target for one, has recently gone ahead and clarified in their policy that these types of manufacturer’s coupons ARE accepted in their stores.
I know some of you often have concerns when I publish these types of coupons – but despite logos and wording referencing other stores – the bottom line is they are manufacturer’s coupons, and I am grateful that Target has spelled this out in their policy. The following excerpt is from their policy and you can read the complete official Target Coupon Policy HERE…
“How can I tell if Target will accept my manufacturer coupon?”
“Target will accept your manufacturer coupon, as long as printed limitations and requirements are met.
• Manufacturer coupons can be accepted at the register even if they don’t clearly indicate who the manufacturer is, or if they indicate the name of another retailer.
• If a coupon states “Manufacturer Coupon,” it’s redeemable anywhere (including Target), even if the coupon states, “Redeemable at Kroger, Cub, etc.” (or any other retailer).”
Hopefully this clarification in the corporate policy will help those of you who have had trouble redeeming these types of manufacturer’s coupons at your local Target stores.
There is one other recent update in the policy to note that may be helpful to those who have a cashier that may be confused about per purchase vs per transaction wording…
“What is the difference between “per purchase” and “per transaction” when using coupons?“
“One coupon per purchase means you’re using one coupon per item being purchased. You can use multiples of the same coupon as long as each coupon has a matching item.
One coupon per transaction means you can use only one specific coupon per store transaction. You can’t use more than one same coupon, even if you’re buying multiple items.”
Thre is a new available to print to save $1.00 when you buy any TWO (2) Classico Family Favorites Pasta Sauces (24 oz.). Thes Family Favorite sauces have shown up new at Target stores over the summer and sell for $2.19 each, so $1.69 after coupon wyb 2.
But Classico sauces go on price cut quite often and the coupon prints with a nice 2-month long expiration date, so plenty of time to wait for a sale!

If you are one of the many like me who tried out the sign up for Cartwheel with Email, you may have two separate accounts currently…one for Facebook and one for Email and they may not be synced. When Target was first testing signup for Email accounts, it was not possible yet to connect the two accounts. Well, good news! Now you can and the instructions are quick and easy.
To merge your Facebook and Email accounts, go to www.Cartwheel.com, and log in with your preferred sign-in method. You can sign in with either one, its just a matter of preference. Next, click on “total saved” in the upper-right hand corner of the page, then click on “Settings” in the drop-down menu that appears. On the “Settings” page, under “add accounts”, click on “Select Account” and follow the instructions.
I merged my accounts easily and now all my savings and badges are consolidated! Plus, you can continue to sign in either way, email or Facebook. Note: only one Facebook account is allowed per profile, although multiple Target.com accounts can be merged into a single Cartwheel profile. If you would like any additional information, you can always contact support @ 1.800.591.3869.

If you haven’t heard yet- some Target Cartwheel offers are now available to use on-line! While this feature is only available on a few select offers, Target is beta testing online redemption for Cartwheel so hopefully more offers will be available in the future. For those of you who prefer to do your shopping online, this is a great opportunity to get an additional discount. Be sure and let Target know what you think!
To check if an offer is available online, look for the tag “ONLINE” at the top of the offer card or in the offer details on Cartwheel.com or in the app. (Online offers only show on on Cartwheel.com or on version 1.6.1 or later of both the iOS and Android apps).
To redeem an online offer, simply add the offer to your cartwheel, then go to your list and click the “redeem online” button on the web or tap the laptop icon at the bottom of your list screen in the app. This will take you to Target.com where your offer is automatically applied. Then just add the item to your cart and checkout! Your savings will be updated in your Cartwheel within 24 hours.

Just a quick note though that the above coupon has a nice LONG expiration date – mine printed with an x date of 10/28, so plenty of time to wait for a possible sale or price cut on this new product. There’s also 2 other coupons right now found in All You Magazine…
If you aren’t familiar with SavingStar, it’s a savings program that is available at select stores – and Target has now joined the list of retailers you can redeem SavingStar offers at! In the past SavingStar has been redeemable only by using a store loyalty card, but they are now offering a mobile app where you can redeem your offers by submitting your receipts through the app.
To get started, just go HERE and sign up for your FREE SavingStar account, enter your zip and choose Target as a store you shop at. Next you will need to download the FREE app via the iTunes store or google play store.
Once you’ve signed up, and confirmed your e-mail and have downloaded the app and are signed in, you can browse for current offers that interest you and add them to your list.
Once you’ve purchased the product(s) at Target, just tap on the Receipt icon in the top blue navigation bar in the app. Next choose Target as the store you purchased at, scan your barcode and then take a picture of your receipt to submit. Purchases must be made before the offer expires, although receipts will be accepted up to 3 days after an offer’s expiration date.
You will receive cash in your SavingStar account between 2-22 days, and once your account accumulates $5 you can cash out via paypal or bank account transfer- or you can choose to get an Amazon Gift Card or donate the money to American Forests. Just go HERE to sign up for your FREE account and get started.
