UPDATE:  Over now folks, will announce the winner in the a.m.!

Welcome to my weekly $50 Target WOW Gift Card Weekend Giveaway! Every week I will be loading $50 onto an extra fun Target Gift Card. These special gift cards all have some kind of fun twist to them and are now retired and can no longer be purchased in store or on

This week’s Ring Ball Arcade Gift Card is very entertaining as it is a mini arcade game!  The object is to pull the lever and try to shoot the ball into the bullseye, with the most points being scored if the ball goes thru the center hole. It’s compact so it will fit in a pocket or purse – perfect for taking along on shopping trips to help keep little ones entertained. And of course the winner will be entertained spending the gift card, as it will come pre-loaded with $50 on it to buy whatever they wish!

HOW TO ENTER THIS GIVEAWAY: For this giveaway, I am allowing 2 entries per reader. Please be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry. Facebook & e-mail entries will not count, so please be sure to leave entry comments on this post:

Entry #1

These are the best deals I see for the week of 3/18. Please keep in mind it is possible for some sales & prices to vary by region. If you are new to using coupons at Target – check out my FAQ & Basics Page HERE to help get you started.

This post is just a highlight- the complete ad with matchups is HERE. It is always a good idea to print the Target coupon policy and take it along with you. And don’t forget to bring your reuseable bags for 5¢ credit each.

If you’re looking for coupons for other items on your list, check the Coupon Database to see where you can find it or if there is a printable coupon available. If you are short on coupons you can use a clipping service (I recommend 4U2Coupon or for whole inserts there is SundayCouponInserts. You can also always search for coupons on eBay.

There’s a new .50/1 Peeps 3-ct Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks Target Web Coupon x4/14 available to print on today. I am surprised we have not seen a manufacturer’s coupon to go with it yet, but typically we do see one every year at Easter time, so hopefully one will show up soon.

But even without one, the Peeps 3 ct Milk chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks are in the ad this coming week starting 3/18 for 2/$3 or $1.50 each, so $1 after this coupon.

Right now you can get an 11×14 Photo Canvas for just $29 and it will ship FREE. This is a special St. Patty’s Day offer for a limited time from Canvas People (regularly $66.99!). I have ordered from them in the past & have been very happy with my prints.

This is a nice big size too- and your canvas will arrive ready to hang on the wall. It’s super easy to order- just go HERE to get started and then upload your photo. Be sure to use a high resolution photo and one that is not too dark for best results. Next check the 11×14 size box, choose “No Frame” (I think looks great hanging just as is), choose “No Effect” and then proceed to checkout.

Good Morning and Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you all! For some reason Austin gets obsessed this time of year about catching a leprechaun. It probably didn’t help that he was given a homework assignment to write a story about the best way to catch one either. ;)

So for days now, he has been building a “trap” out of a vitacost box. He asked me to cut a door and he made a little bed and put fake gold inside and a sign on the box and even poked air holes in it. Then he put all kinds of binder clips on the doorway to lock the leprechaun inside.

He was truly dismayed this morning when he came downstairs and there was no leprechaun inside. So he’s at baseball practice right now and I photoshopped a little leprechan into this picture. Think I can get away with telling him I saw one go in but I couldn’t catch him and he escaped? :)

Anyway- hope you have a great day and one that is filled with a little luck!
