Nivea Target Gift Card Deal is a Money Maker!

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy

UPDATE: Many of you have reported the tins are no longer working as a qualifying item 🙁 but there are still very nice deals to be had with the lotion and lip balm.

Wow! There are ALL kinds of products included in the offer for a FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 3 select Nivea items at Target thru 5/12! Even the little Nivea Creme tins are included at .87 cents! All these inclusions will make for some amazing deals- but keep in mind at Target, you cannot earn a Gift Card if the sum of your THREE qualifying purchases does not AT LEAST meet the amount of the gift card you are earning before coupons.

So in other words, if you try and buy 3 tins at .87 cents each, the register will NOT prompt for the gift card since your total will be only $2.61. And you also can’t buy 6 tins to meet the $5 – that will NOT prompt one either. The sum of (3) qualifying items must = $5 in order for the Gift Card to prompt. BUT these little tins will make great fillers and help to get you products super cheap, FREE and even a money maker with coupon!

DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Nivea Creme Tins (.87) & 13.5 oz Lotion ($4.22) = $5.96
-$2/1 Nivea Hand or Body Lotion 1.7-13.5oz 4-29-12 RP x5/27
= $3.96 – $5 Gift Card Back wyb 3 Nivea Products

  1. Poor customer service Target! They choose to do a promotion and then change it after a couple of days then treat customers as if we are idiots. I did this deal with the tins and balm on Monday then tried today and nothing. Asked a manager why and they acted as if I was trying to pull something. I only did the deal a couple of times on Monday so not to be greedy but crap like this makes me feel like I should just strike it while it’s hot. Grrr!

  2. Tins don’t work, but not a bad deal. I had some Target catalinas for Nivea and some other coupons, so I got the lotion and the cheapest lip gloss.

  3. I tried to do the deal for the two tins and the lotion and it did not prompt the gc 🙁 im in chicago illinois.

  4. I went to my Target and had 3 lotions and 6 tins. The register did not prompt for the tins at all. The cashier tried to go into the “fine print” on the tags which does say certain size lotions in the sale paper, but the signs just say “on select products”. She could not tell me what the select products were. I plan to go back before Sunday with my coupons to fight the battle and I HOPE they have the 4.29 or 3.22 lotion in stock. Might try 2 lotions and 1 tin thought?

  5. I went to Delran, NJ location 2 hours ago. I got the bigger bottle of lotion, and 2 tins. The tins rang up at $.97 (full price) and did not prompt for the gift card. The cashier, without mentioning it, changed the price of the tins back to $.87 and manually entered the free gift card.

  6. I went today and I was told that they took the signs down and the 87 cent tins re no longer work…

  7. I just bought the $4.22 lotion and two little tin creams and i got nothing 🙁 I tried it yesturday and it worked?

  8. In South Florida went to Guest Services with a few of the Nivea products and confirmed the Tins are no longer working, but the small lotions, large lotions and the mint lip balm is still working.

    I did 1 large lotion @ $4.22, 2 small lotions @ $3.59; used 3 $2 off Nivea coupons and paid about $6 and received the $5 gift card. Still a good deal.

    Also found the baby 25% more Banana Boat sunscreen SPF 50 on clearance for $2, they are changing the bottle so the old ones are on the clearance rack, used the $1 off target coupon and scored 4 of them for $1 each! Clairol Natural Instincts Creme hair color w/ shampoo attached clearance is down to $3.48, used Target flier $2 off and $5/2 p&g and got a bunch of them for free!

  9. Now I’m wondering if my transaction didn’t work because my whole order did not not add up to at least $5 after the coupons…would that be why the gc didn’t prompt? I did get 2 tins and the lotion, which was over $5.00, but after coupons my total was only $3.xx and I didn’t have any other items.

  10. Tried this deal today in Massachusetts and it did not work 2 tins and 1 13.5oz lotion. My sister did it yesterday and it worked, boo.
