So I talked about this in the Coupon Preview Post on Friday- but in case you missed it- starting today, hopefully many of you will have received the $1/1 Gas-X Coupon in your Smart Source insert. There is a stack available with a $3/1 printable Target Coupon too. The 18 ct Chewables are $3.99 at my store- so it makes for a great freebie.
Gas-X Chewables Extra Strength 18 ct box $3.99 (Regular Price)
-$3/1 Gas-X or Maalox ETS Target Coupon PRINT x12/4
-$1/1 Gas-X product 11-7-10 SS x1/8/11
= FREE after a stack
This deal is ALSO a great filler when doing Gift Card Deals to work in your favor against the GLITCH. Each deal will give you an extra $2.99 worth of merchandise value to use other manufacturer’s coupons against, ($3.99 – $1/1 MQ). This is because Target coupons don’t impact the glitch and can work to get your total down BUT ONLY IF YOU HAND OVER YOUR TARGET COUPONS LAST!
I wanted to provide a couple of examples for you too. I realize not everyone has the same prices or can use 2 like Target coupons in one tranny, and not everyone will be interested in the same products- but I hope it helps give you ideas of how to make fillers like this and Target coupons work in your favor. (if you are unfamiliar with the deals listed below- please see the Special Deals Page)
When doing a $5 Gift Card Deal, your total using manufacturer coupons cannot fall below $10. HOWEVER, Target coupons are unaffected by the glitch as long as they are used LAST and can help to bring a total down…
