Welcome to the Knorr Report- my little weekly report of my adventures at Target. So this week I had to chuckle at a couple things. For starters I was curious about the Natural Instincts Bonus Packs told you about last week that come with a Free Cover Girl Lash Exact Mascara for $6.99. I had found them on a backside endcap at my store and they are still there and still priced at $6.99. I even scanned one to check, so if you can find them- with the right coupons it’s a pretty good deal. BUT… back in the regular Hair Color aisle – if you are absolutely against geting a free Mascara with your hair color, then you will have to pay $7.99.
I was very tempted to head off to the arts and crafts aisle, and make a big poster to hang by the hair color that said- “THERE’S A BETTER DEAL AROUND THE CORNER” with a huge arrow on it, but I decided to fight the urge and move forward. There are also Mascara Bonus Packs for the same price on the Nice ‘n Easy too, and if you find them- you have through this week to take advantage of the following deal since the P&G Qs will expire at the end of the week:
Clairol Natural Instincts OR Nice n Easy Bonus Packs $6.99 (regular price)
-$5/2 Clairol Hair Colors 6-27-10 Target Regional Insert x7/31 x8/30
-$5/2 Clairol Natural Instincts hair color 7-11-10 RP x8/31
-$2/1 Nice ‘n Easy hair color product 7-4-10 PG x7/31
Natural Instincts: Buy 2 use both Qs and pay $1.99 each after Qs wyb 2
Nice n’ Easy: Buy 2 and use the TQ and two $2/1 to pay $2.49 each after Qs wyb 2
I also noticed that now that the Price Cut of $5 is over on the Finish Quantumatic, I can pick them up for a penny less at my store since they are back at $4.99. If you find the same- there was a coupon on 7/18 aside from printables available. It is a better deal to buy 2 starter packs which will give you 2 refills, than to just buy the refill pack alone which I believe is at least $9.99 and has no coupons available to use on it.
Also- many of you report finding the Hunts Snack Pack 12 packs for $2.48
so your $1 Off Snack Pack (1) 12 pack or (3) 4-packs TQ alone will go further spent on those:
$2.49 – $1 = $1.48 for a 12 pk or 12 cents a cup.
If you have the All You Q, it is a penny cheaper per cup to buy (4) 4-pks and use both Qs:
-$1/1 Hunt’s Snack Packs Pudding 12 Pack OR (3) 4-Packs Target Store Q PRINT x8/28
-$1/4 Snack Pack Pudding (4-Packs), Any – All You, August 2010
Buy (4) 4-Packs (.95 each) = $3.80 – $2 (use both Qs) = $1.80 for 16 or .11 cents a cup.
I was happy to find the Pure Fitness included in the Crystal Light sale at $1.97. I know many of you have that price regularly, but I don’t so, I was happy I waited to use my Vocal Point Mailer Qs and got them for free. And the Pedigree sale includes several varieties of treats, including Dentastix, and there are both Target Insert coupons and MQs to pair them with too.
There’s a couple Short-Term Price Cuts I noticed at my store good through 7/31 too. Several varieties of Colgate Toothpaste are priced at $2. This even included some of the Total varieties. There were some not marked that were scanning at $2 anyway. Unfortunately, none of the special bonus packs though. And I also saw Kandoo Flushable Wipes 50 ct. Tubs on Price cut for $1.99 and the 42 ct. Refill packs were $1.49.
Well, that’s it for now folks- hope y’all are having a good week!

There is a great new Target Coupon mailer that some of you may have found/or will find in your mailboxes. It is called ”Welcome Back to School” with over $50 worth of coupons and an offer of a $5 Target Gift Card wyb $50 or more.
Many of the coupons are identical to the online printables, so I don’t feel too shortchanged that I didn’t get one. I am still finishing the matchup for this one and the Extraordinary Savings Mailer, since everyone seems to have received the same one and will get them posted up on the Target Coupon Page soon.
-Thanks so much Christine in S. Florida for the pic and for tyoing up the list of coupons!

I have noticed that my Target is starting to carry more and more Newman’s Own Organic products. And reasonably priced too. They sell assorted varieties of the 24 oz Pasta Sauce for $1.89. I have also noticed Popcorn and other snacks, and recently they started carrying a 6-pack of Organic Raisins priced at $1.69. There are a couple printable coupons available good on ANY Newman’s own products to bring them down to $1.19 after the coupon. I think that’s a pretty good deal for Organic Raisins.
*Regular price can vary by region, you may find it higher or lower at your store.
Okay, so if I had music on my blog, this post would begin with some real soap opera kind of music, as I know many of you have experienced quite the drama from doing the Unadvertised Schick Disposable Gift Card Deal. Thanks to Karen who wrote her thoughts to me in an e-mail, I am now fairly convinced that at many stores, the register is seeing the gift card as a MANUFACTURER’S coupon and creating overage of not just $5 but $10. It’s almost like it is crediting the Gift Card twice in your transaction. But not in a good way.
For example, Mitchell and many of you- I am guessing whoever was doing this deal and this deal only in one transaction bought 2 Schick Disposable Razors, and watched as their first $3/1 coupon scanned in at .98, and the second at $0. So here is what I think is happening- for some reason when you buy the Schick Disposables (and this may be true for any Gift Card Deal now with the new register software), the register attaches a $5 credit to each package of razors you buy:
Buy 2 Schick = $10.98, and before you hand over any coupons, the register has attached a $5 credit to each item and sees your total as being .98 cents. This is why when the first coupons scans, the register will only take off .98 cents since the system won’t let the register go into the negative. And as a result your 2nd coupon will scan in at $0. But the register still sees it as you owing the $10. after it took only one of your coupons and morphed it into a .98/1.
Now I think the varying amounts are due to those of you who threw some other things into the mix or perhaps found the razors priced higher. I was hoping that if you purchased a couple other small fillers that their cost would not matter, but all it did was give you more of your coupon value back. For example, today I asked Mitchell to do a little experiment. He bought 2 Schick Disposable Razors, and 2 paper folders for .15 cents each- and his total was now $10.98 + .30 = $11.28. He then used the first $3/1 Schick coupon and guess what? It took off $1.28 instead of only .98 this time.
So then we did experiment 2, in which I thought you may have to have at least 2 items, but it appears that the amount is what matters, not how many items you have. So you just need 1 or more items in your transaction you aren’t using a coupon for- that cost enough in order to cover the coupons you want to use. Mitchell bought 2 Schick Razors & a Total Effects Body Wash to test this theory: $10.98 + $5.79 = $16.77, he only used 2 $3/1 Schick coupons and they went through fine.
So what’s a shopper to do? Is it that they are really trying to do away with accepting coupons on Gift Card Deals? Or is it just a glitch in the register. Are we really going to have to have enough overage made up of items with no coupons in our basket every time to absorb the $10 the register is considering coupons? And why is it $10 and not just $5 that the register seems to be crediting? Feel free to add your thoughts, suggestions etc… I am starting to get dizzy
-Thanks so much to Karen and to Mitchell for trying to sort this all out!
