  1. The cashier at my target wouldn’t let me use the coupon, since it was
    producing a giftcard? She said because it was make up?
    Is that accurate?

  2. Just to be clear – I also saw the post on Kroger Krazy and she received a response from Cover Girl. This coupon is, indeed, designed for this use.

  3. @ Melanie: the coupon clearly states: “$2.00 off one covergirl lashblast mascara or one eye shadow.” I am not sure why your personal ethics should bother you or anyone else who uses it exactly how the manufacturer advertised to use it! And I also am not sure why Kerry would check with the manufacturer when she is stating in her post to use it too buy items that are clearly printed on the coupon. If you have a personal problem using it maybe you should call the manufacturer.

  4. @Melanie- the coupons stated in the words eye shadow. I do not think there was anything wrong with using it on the single eye shadows. Is it because the picture did not show eye shadows in it? From what I have learned you have to go by the wording not the picture.

  5. There wern’t any signs at the Target I went to, so I just took 4 of the eye shadows and asked the cashier to check and see if they triggered the GC before I bought them. They did trigger the GC, happily, but then I got home and read the girl who blogs on Kroger Krazy. She was saying she didn’t think that coupon goes with the eye shadows. She thought there was a mistake on P&G’s coupon language and it’s a personal ethics issue as to whether you should use it or not. Was it really okay to use this coupon on this product? I’ve been worried all day since I went to Target. And the cashier who checked me out really scrutinized all my coupons like I was doing something wrong. Was this really right to use this coupon? Have you checked with the manufacturer?

  6. Hey Kelly- SIgns have to be put out manually- so it could just be a missing sign. just because there is no sign does not mean it is not working on eye shadow. If you don’t see a sign- rrmemeber- you can always take a product bring it up to a register or GS and ask them to look it up in the sysytem for you to see if it is offering a gift card. hth

  7. Hey! I was at Target today just checking out the different colors of eyeshadow and they have many things included in the buy 4/get $5 gift card but not the eyeshadow 🙁

  8. It would appear that our local Target does NOT include the Cover Girl eye shadow as a part of the buy 4 get 1 5$ gift card deal. =( It allows the other three things: Cover Girl Nail Polish, Head and Shoulders, and Clairol Nice n Easy. Boo! Do you think there is any way I could get them to honor it? (Madison, WI)

  9. Hey Jennifer- As I mention quite often here on the blog- all coupons always have the potentioal to be regional, or to vary in denomination by region etc. but if you see the $3/2 covergirl nail polish mine was right underneath that one.
