Having Trouble with Double Dips at Target? Next Week’s Ad Starting 2/4 Should Be A Big Help

Quite often Target releases insert coupons which allow you to earn a gift card for buying select products. For example, there were several regional Target coupons in the 1-21 Smart Source to earn a $5 Gift Card with select Purina pet purchase of $20 or more. Some of you may also get these same coupons in your upcoming 2-4 Smart Source insert as well.

Simultaneously, we often see in store gift card deals for the same products. For example starting tomorrow 2/4, Target will be offering up a FREE $5 Gift Card when you buy 2 select Purina pet care items.

I will often post double dipping deals where you can earn a gift card from the Target coupon AND a gift card from the in store deal. In the past, several of you have reported having trouble with these double dips where your store will only allow you to earn one or the other but not both.

If you are one of these folks having trouble at your stores, I have some good news for you. In next week’s Target ad that starts tomorrow, February 4th, Target is actually advertising a double dip using these Purina Target insert Coupons…..

“Get an additional $5 Target GiftCard when you spend $20 or more on Purina pet products with coupon in the SmartSource insert in most Sunday papers.”

So here’s a couple of examples of some nice deals you will be able to get with the double dip…

DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Purina Tidy Cats Litter ($12.99) = $25.98
-FREE $5 Gift Card wyb $20+ Purina Tidy Cats TQ 1-21 SS x2/10 or 2-4 SS x2/24
-$3 (use two $1.50/1 Purina Tidy Cats Clumping Cat Litter (excl. Lightweight) 1-7 RP1 x3/3
= $17.98 – $5 Gift Card back for buying 2 select Purina items
= $12.98 for both or $6.49 each after coupons & gift cards back

DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Purina Cat Chow ($11.99) = $23.98
-FREE $5 Gift Card wyb $20+ Purina Cat Food or Treats TQ 1-21 SS x2/10 or 2-4 SS x2/24
-$4 (use two $2/1 Purina Cat Chow 13 lb+ 1-7-18 RP1 x4/30
(or use $2/2 Purina Cat Chow brand dry cat food 3.15 lb+

= $14.98 – $5 Gift Card back for buying 2 select Purina items
= $9.98 for both or $4.99 each after gift cards back

So, if you have had trouble using your gift card coupons on gift card deals in the past, you may want to consider showing the ad to your cashier or a team leader if necessary.
