Another Unadvertised Gift Card Deal: Olay Bodywash

olaybodywashChristie from Big Fat Piggy Bank & I both got comments & e-mails from readers about the Olay Body Wash also prompting a gift card when you bought 3. We were both pretty unclear on the deal- so Christie played detective today down at Target and didn’t find a sign in sight but did some scanning. We both heard it works on the Bonus Packs of Olay Quench & Ribbons Bonus Packs priced at $5.49, but she could not find any in her store to check. But she did find that it works with Olay Total Effects Body Wash too- on the 8.4 oz size- so you can combine the Gillette deal to make it better!

FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 3 Olay Total Effects Body Wash 8.4 oz $5.49 each
FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 2 Venus Embrace Razors $6.99
Buy 2 Venus Embrace Razor $6.99 each
Buy 3 Olay Total Effects Body Wash for $5.49
= $30.45
-$4.00 (use two $2/1 Venus Embrace from 2-7 PG)
-$10.98 (use 2 Buy Venus Get Olay Bodywash Free from 2-7 PG)
-$1/1 Olay Body Wash, Bar Soap, In-Shower Body Lotion, Any Except Trial Size – 01-17-10 PG
-$2.00 Mobile Target Q 
= $12.47 –$10.00 (get back two $5 Gift Cards) = $2.47 for 2 Razors and 3 Bodywash after Qs & GC

or if you don’t mind coming out of pocket a little more- you could do three gift card deals combining the following deals:

FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 3 Olay Total Effects Body Wash 8.4 oz $5.49 each
FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 2 Gillette Venus or Fusion Razors $6.99
Buy 3 Venus Embrace Razor $6.99 each
Buy 1 Gillette Fusion Razor $6.99 each
Buy 3 Olay Total Effects Body Wash for $5.49
= $44.43
-$6.00 (use three $2/1 Venus Embrace from 2-7 PG)
-$4.00 (use 1 $4/1 Gillette Fusion Razor from 2-7 PG)
-$16.47 (use 3 Buy Venus Get Olay Bodywash Free from 2-7 PG)
-$2.00 Mobile Target Q 
= $15.96 –$15.00 (get back three $5 Gift Cards) = 96 cents for 4 Razors and 3 Bodywash after Qs & GC

I am not sure how long this deal goes on for- so if any of you had signage in your stores- please let us know! I will also provide more details on which products it is working on besides the Total Effects as soon as I get it sorted out.

A HUGE thanks to Christie from Big Fat Piggy Bank for doing all that investigating today! I had such a loooong day at Target yesterday I was too tired to go again today! You sure have stamina girl!

  1. Jen, I agree with you. I’m in the Dallas, Tx area. I purchased 3 Venus Breeze Razors and 3 Olay Body Washes (Ribbons, Winter & Shea Butter). I only received a $5 GC for the razors. 🙁

  2. I don’t see any recent comments from this week. I’m trying to figure out if the Olay body wash $5 GC promo is working in Texas this week. Monday I went to one Target and scanned a bunch of Olay body washes, and none showed the $5 GC on the screen. The Venus razors did show the $5 GC, so i know we have the newer version of the price scanner.

  3. I’m sorry if this is a silly QA, but I’m new to couponing. I tried to do this transaction, but the Target manager said that I could not use the 2/1 venus coupon since I was already using the BOGO coupon for the body wash which was based on the razor. I looked over the corp policy and didn’t see anything on point there. Can you please explain what I’m missing?

  4. Hey Dawn- just curious if you scanned any of the Bonus Packs if your store had them or if you just scanned the regular Ribbons ones?

  5. I scanned all the different types Olay body wash at my store in Mt. Dora, FL and the Olay Ribbons did not show that they were included in the gift card deal. The only ones that showed the promotion were the ones like the one pictured above, total effects. I was hoping to get the Olay Ribbons. HTH 🙂

  6. I found a sign! At my Target here in Colorado there was a sign up on a back end cap for this deal. It said get a $5 Gift Card when you buy 3 Olay Body Washes ($5.50) or Bath Bar Bonus Pack. The deal is good from 2/7 until 3/27 so you have a while. Now I did scan two different Olay products in the self price check one type didn’t show the gift card deal the other did. The ones that did had the little bonus packs of another Olay product on the lotion ect. but the one that didn’t also had a little extra- My advice is to do the self price check before you buy :). I hope this helps.

  7. I just got back from Target. I purchased 4 venus, 4 gilette, 4 body washes. I got 5 $5 GCs and if you count those final cost was $7. (I don’t have the mobile coupon.)

    Thanks for the info!

    Oh, signs.. There weren’t even any up for the razor’s sale price or the GCs.

    Body wash was the ribbon kind with the bonus lotion, on sale for $5.50 but no other signage.
