*Clearance varies from store to store- there are no guarantees you will find the same. Try and give yourself a little extra time this week to take a good long look around the whole store. There is lots of clearance going on in many areas of the home sections- Bedding, furniture, accessories, decor, frames and much more so take a good look around. Also look for TUMS bonus packs, Febreze Set & Refresh, Finish Quantumatic Starter Kit spotted for $4.24, Chapstick Ultra Smooth, SunMaid Raisins, ZooPals re-useable cups, and Kleenex 3 ct Bundle Packs. If you are looking for a coupon for something I mentioned, try checking My Coupon Database, to see if there is one and where you can find it.

Remember- If you are short on coupons  you can use a clipping service (I recommend My Coupon Hunter) and see what’s available. You can also search for coupons on eBay.

  1. My $5/5 Kraft rung up as $0 today. After grimacing, staring, and otherwise making me feel like a criminal the associate along with his manager manually entered it. I am so tired of Target and their coupon problems. Does anybody know when they think this will be corrected? I think it is easier to price-match at Walmart than to go through this torture.

  2. I used my Kraft $5 coupons the other day, and both rang as $0. The manager came over and did a price adjustment after verifying I bought 10 packs of cheese, and when I mentioned that Giant had no problem accepting my other ones. I also made sure I took on pack with the Kraft stickie advertising the coupon.

    I have emailed corporate twice complaining, once about a rude manager who gave me a problem over my $4 game coupons, and another time when a cashier didn’t ring my coupon in but kept it. They gave me a case number and phone number to call next time I had a coupon problem. Yesterday went fine so didn’t have to do it, but now I even though I watch to make sure the coupons go through, I don’t leave the store until after double and triple checking my receipt. I actually have added a new column to my shopping list…the amount of each coupon used. Now I can go down the receipt and check off each coupon and if I see an amount missing, I know I’ve missed one. Luckily I can usually leave my kids at home so this works for me.

    And Cristina…if you returned the wipes that manager was required to return your coupons. They all have a key to unlock the register so that’s a total lie on her part. I would call corporate and complain about it.

  3. I also had problems with coupons at Target. Just last week I was buying the Michelina’s Frozen Meals. I believe they were .83 a piece. I bought 5 and I had a coupon for $1 off 5. So it should have brought down the price of the meals to .63 a piece. The coupon rang in at .83. I didn’t fight over the few cents but this isn’t the first time I’ve had either pricing issues or coupon problems.

    Also I noticed if the coupon doesn’t ring in alot of the cashiers will just go right past them. I was looking at my reciept once and noticed 2 $3.00 coupons didn’t ring up. So I went right to customer service. I got the are you crazy look. Finally they went and checked the cashiers bag and she had them in there. She goes I wasn’t sure if they rang up. It was like no big deal.

    I love the deals you get at Target but sometimes I feel like its a hassle more than anything.

  4. I also had a problem with the $5/5 Kraft coupon today. It rang up as $0.00 off. When I went back immediately after the sale, the cashier gave me a $5 cash refund for the coupon, so I guess I’m one of the lucky ones. The cheese that I bought actually had a peelie on it with details about the $5/5 coupon and how to go print it. If there were any problems, I was going to point out the peelie on the packaging to show that it was a valid coupon.

  5. Tried using the $2.50/3 Huggies wipes today and got a manager that refused to adjust the coupon as well. It only took off $1.99. He said that he could not adjust unless corporate gave permission and they had not given permission on that coupon. Guess I should email corporate now. On the bright side, they did except all 3 of my target coupons so final cost was $1.87 for all three tubs.

  6. I’ve been avoiding Target because of all the grief they give me about coupons. It has to be a really, really great sale for me to go there now which is too bad cause I still have 5 gc from them. I figure I’ll use it eventually.

    BTW, I thought I was the only one not impressed with this week’s ad, 😉

  7. I am becoming more and more frustrated w/target, and hope someone can help…EVERYtime I try to use a coupon that is 2.50/3, $5/5 I have issues and cashiers/managers that will NOT adjust. I am always polite and -they- are always polite in explaining that since the diaper wipes were 1.99 that it will only take off 1.99 instead of the 2.50/3. I never know what to say, so I say nothing, but leave frustrated. How are you able to get the cashier to adjust?

  8. Melissa-Since my closest target is 30 minutes away, I usually price match at Walmart unless TQ’s are involved. It is pretty easy just make sure the items are the exact ones advertised (size, brand, etc.) and just let the cashier know before she scans the items. (She has to push a few buttons first). You can use coupons when you price match the items. Just be careful with the $5/5 coupons as mine scanned for $1.50. The cashier was really nice about it and just kept scanning the coupons (I had 2 of them) until we got the $10 off. I hope this helps you out. Good luck!

  9. I had a problem with the Kraft $5/5 last week (took off $0.00). I knew about the problem with these and had been avoiding them but I wasn’t thinking and used that AND the Smart Ones $5/10 (only took off $1.80). I didn’t notice until I got home, of course. When I went back I explained to the manager the problem and how this is an on going problem with all the Targets, she just looked at me like I was crazy and had no idea what I was talking about. I started out nice and left cranky. She started out over her job and over me. She ended up giving me (2) $3 “Sorry for the Inconvenience” coupons (which didn’t cover the $8.20 I was owed) and told me that if I was going to use a lot of coupons to watch the register and make sure they’re going through. I told her easier said then done when I have and overflowing cart full of products and 2 children! I have NEVER had a problem with the cashiers and my very LARGE stack of coupons. I will just go on avoiding the “problem” coupons like I was and hope that Target gets it together. What makes me so mad is that they will get the full value of the coupon.

  10. Has anyone successfully used the $5/5 kraft products coupon at Target? I just got back from Target where I tried to do it—it rang in at $0 and the manager refused to adjust it. He said there were too many fraudulent coupons out there so if the register doesn’t accept it, he won’t override it. Has anyone actually gotten Target to override it?

    If I go to Walmart and have them price match the cheese, can I still use a coupon? I’ve never price matched anything before so I’m not sure if they’ll let me use the coupon on top of the price match. Thanks for any info you can give me!

  11. Talking about Kraft cheese, be careful if you guys planning on use the $1/1 SS 9/12 String or Twist cheese, I bought 2 yesterday and the 2 coupons scanned at $0.00. Luckily I noticed that while at the store. Got my $2 back.

  12. Just wanted to share my experience at Target a few days ago. The 2.5/3 huggies wipes – yes it will scan for 1.99 so even after explaining why it was doing that the cashier still refused to change so I just said I would take it to CS – she turned out to be the manager so not only I couldn’t get the wipes deal (I returned them) I lost all my 3- 0.75 target coupons because she said they can’t give it back to you. She also wouldn’t take both my $1 off kraft salad dressing because they had matching ip addresses (BUT NOT THE NUMBER UNDER THE DOTTED BARCODE) and would not take my explanation why I could have 2 of the same coupons even when I showed that they were different. Luckily I told her to void both the vaseline lotions I was buying since neither target or mq scanned (she told me one of the lotions didn’t specify BODY on it – where else would I use it?). This is a store I don’t go to but stopped by since I took my soon to the doctor nearby and I told her I never had this many coupon problems at the other targets I go to (she said their new policy allow managers to refuse whatever qs they want). I got the CS number with her and all they said she should have tried to adjust the huggies and to call from the store next time, which sounds easy unless you have a toddler getting frustrated too! Other than that experience I LOVE target and all the free/ cheap stuff I’ve been getting recently! Went to another one the next day and got my vaseline lotions (both Qs beeped and the cashier didn’t even hesitate to push them through) and merona dresses for $2!!!
