  1. Great deal on Norelco HS85 Replacement Heads if your store has them on clearance, this is what I got *prices are close but not accurate*.
    Norelco HS85 Replacement head $32 msrp – Clearance 50% off to 15 – Target coupon $5 off Norelco replacement heads $10 each.
    Also found the matching unit for 50% off so came out to around $60 for unit plus two extra replacement heads.

  2. Does anyone know if they are doing the tide deal right now for gift cards. Just realized I have the wrong laundry soap for the Washer I had delivered yesterday would love to score a gift card if I can lol

  3. FYI – The flintstones chewables was not part of the sale and I have already check with the store manager… 🙁

    Great deal on arm and hammer kitty litter right now. Get a $5 gift card when you buy two boxes plus there is a $1 manufacturer coupon and a $2 target coupon. Then save your receipt and mail in for a rebate for $8.99. The rebate firm is easy to find online. This applied to the arm and hammer ultra last only. Totally awesome new litter. I am loving it!

  5. Can someone help me with the Desitin deal? I use this stuff daily for my son and would love to stock up, but when i go to Target the bonus pack rings up for $4.84 and they look it up and say there is no gift card deal. ;-( if anyone has any advice on how I can find a Target in my area that is doing the deal I would LOVE to know. I am willing to drive a little bit to get it.

  6. @Lila- It’s a Target coupon that can be found in the regional Target Johnson & Johnson coupon insert that was in some 1-8 newspapers expires 1/14. hth

  7. Went to target over lunch to pick up some vitamins for my son. All the buy 3 get $5 gc signes were out. I had the TG coupon and three MF coupons. Got through the check out, coupons weren’t a problem, but no GC was prompted. I said I should get one and the cashier said “it would have prompted one” so I went to CS and they looked thru their ad and said “that isn’t in the ad” I said the signs are all over the vitamins. Then they tried to suggest that perhaps I purchased the wrong ones. The end result was they said the deal must have ended and they sent someon back to take down the signs ASAP and logged it as a “missed coupon” and gave me a $5 bill. All in all a win, but i wanted to let everyone know…

  8. hey Kerry!
    is -$2/2 Johnson’s Newborn Skin Care is still thr? i can’t find it?


  9. I just noticed in our Save A Lot ad that hillshire smoked sausage or kielbasa 12oz are $1.99! nice PM for the free $5 gift card deal wyb 5 hillshire products

  10. Just got my curel $2/1 coupons from the clipping service, time to go get some gift cards! Man i love this! Also got two more maybelline target coupons $2/1 and got two more maybelline $1/1 lip care, i hope there are some more baby lips left because i will get those for free!! My fiance and her daughter loves those lol. Hope everyone is haveing a grreat weekend!!

  11. Help please. these deals say may be regional and some of you post that you price checked items on a scanner and there were deals although not advertised. My ad only has an ad for the 5.00 gift card with glade items. So does this mean I miss all the other deals mentioned above or do I have to price check through the store? I have many target q and mq I wanted to get deals on. In WA state. Thank you!

  12. @Fatima, so glad it worked for you. Every store is different and some probably would not have allowed a print out from a website that just posts about target deals and is not actually affiliated with target. It just goes to show what a great job Kerry does on this site. Glad you got to partake in the gc deals. And your welcome for looking for the info. I try to help if and when I can.

  13. FYI- my store in Brighton, MI has blue and green Glade holiday spray clearanced to $2.06 on endcaps. Will save you a little more on the Glade deal.

  14. Christine thank you so much! I didn’t know when was the first time the palmolive deal was posted, I printed what you told me and it worked, I got a gift certificate for $15.00, since I bought 2 of the palmolive deal and 1 for the gift sets. I really appreciate your info 😉

  15. Hello, i am new to all of this but had my best day at target last Friday. It’s real exciting and i got my fiance’ to come with me and she got excited too lol. I ended up getting around $80 worth of stuff and paid $18 and some change, but i got a $5 gift card and used that coupon for the $10 gift card if you spend $50 or more so it actually only cost me $3 and some change. Man that was fun. We are on a tight budget and i have been trying to learn how to do all this and found that it is quite enjoyable. My fiance got herself 2 sleepwear shirts and a sweater, i also got the curel, visine, sparkling water,maybelline baby lips,and a few other things that i can’t remember right now lol but man i had a blast. It’s sites like this one that help me soo much and i thank you for all you do.


  16. That’s what I got! I got 5 for me and 5 for my mom, thinking it was a good deal after the gift cards and coupons. The store I went just opened a few weeks ago, they are really nice people, the manager said it wouldn’t be fair that some Target stores have such good deals and we don’t. She said she will look for that promotion, but she asked me to get her anything that I can to help her honor me the deals. I was looking for old Target ads online to print it, but not sure where to look. Does anyone know what I can do other then take them back? 🙂

  17. Kerry, where can I find the ad about the palmolive dish liquid deal?. I bought 10 of them yesterday and didn’t get anything, I called the store and told them about deal going on in other Target stores, they told me that if I bring a copy of the ad or anything from Target where the deal shows they will adjust my receipt.

  18. Help I can’t find the target $5.00 gift card coupon on Kimberly Clark products…..help…where can I find them

  19. My Target has a special purchase deal on the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, “Buy 1, get a $5 dollar gift card’. I have a couple of $10 stacks ($5 Man Q & $5 Target Q) to go w/this, plus the free product coupon I received from the John Frieda website. Is this even allowed? Lol. Spend only $1.98 for an $11.98 product and get a $5 gift card back, also w/the free coupon where I would pay nothing and also get a $5 gift card? Seems too good to be true. Lol.

  20. On this deal you forgot the $3/2 John Freida Sheer Blond or Brilliant Brunette to stack with the MQ, so it would look like this (which I did)

    DEAL IDEA #2: Buy 3 John Freida Sheer Blonde or Brilliant Brunette ($4.99) = $14.97
    -$6.00 (use three -$2/1 John Frieda Product, any full size (ETS & Precision Foam) 10-9-11 SS x12/3
    -$3.00 John Frieda Sheer Blonde or Brilliant Brunette (Target online coupon during Nov, if you printed)
    = $5.97 – $5 Gift Card back for buying 3
    = $.97 for 3 or $.32 each after coupons and Gift Card !!!
    Now THAT’S a deal!!!!

  21. there’s a $1.00 MQ on for Vaseline (24.5 oz or larger) on RP 11/13/11 to pair up with vaseline deal. it would cost only $1.50 each after Q’s and GC. some of the bottles come with bonus lotions/body wash attached. even better! 😛

  22. Wasn’t sure where to post this…the $2.00 target huggies slip on coupon is back up to print @ http://www.squirmybabychallenge.com/ and I believe there are some huggies coupons in the 11/20 insert this week.. these average between 9.49-9.99 at my target..stacked w/ the $3.00 huggies coupon is about 4.49-4.99 for a pack..

  23. there is a target coupon for $5 giftcard wyb $25 Kimberly Clark product. It was in RP this past sunday (I am in Iowa)

  24. @ Yanny
    A coupon may say “Do Not double”, however, if the bar code starts with “5”, it automatically doubles at the register if your store doubles unless a cashier manually delete doubling. Some stores may do so if the coupon states “No doubling”. All of stores with double coupons by my house automatically double coupons although the coupons say “Do Not double”. If the coupon’s bar code starts with “9”, it will NOT double automatically.

  25. @ Yanny, it means that when you use the coupon at a place that doubles or triples coupons that specific coupon will not double or triple. i hope this helps..

  26. @Carrie, thast awesome. I hope my target in iowa is doing that. I keep meaning to see how much ink cartridges are at target and always forget. I know at my local walmart they are $14.50, which is $1 more than the super walmart 23 miles away, which is close to target. So even if they were $13.50 at target and i was able to get the 5% off with my target debit card, that would make me happy too, but if theres a gc on them also… sweet! thanks for posting!

  27. Thank you Kerry for all of your hard work! I use your site all the time and greatly appreciate the effort you put into it!

    I don’t know how often you check these comments but, i thought i’d let you know of a deal i found tonight at my target in SC. The HP ink cartridges are buy 1 and get a $5 gc. Most of them were included except the multi-packs I think. And, they are regular price, no sale. Just thought I’d let you know!

  28. My Target had special packages of Nivea lip balm $2.49 (2 in the pack for the price of one) so after purchasing 2 packages (which got me 4 tubes) and using the Nivea coupon $3.00/2 Nivea Lip Care Products from RP 10/2 – final price per tube was .50!

  29. Thanks a ton! Our local Target had the Crest Whitestrips Professional Effects for 43.99, just as stated here. There was no sign about a $5 gift card but I went to Guest Services and they confirmed the existence of the deal. We got ours for $30 out of pocket, after coupons, plus $5 GC. =D

  30. jen – The register prompts the cashier to give you the GC. If you want to verify that you’re getting the correct items, you can scan at the little red price checker and it will tell you if there are any special promotions attached. I always do that, just to make sure I won’t have any “issues” at the check out…lol!

  31. I just did a Walmart price match on the Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Cleaner Starter Kit (which was advertised for $3.97 at Walmart). I bought 2 kits and 2 refills. Used 2 $4/1 kit coupons and 1 B1G1 refill coupon. Paid 3.99 (plus tax) and got back 2 $5 gift cards!

  32. Are the gift card deals advertised? Wandering how the store knows to give a gift card if you purchase something offering one…?

  33. I used the $2 off Baby Denim Target coupon today on clearance denim shorts (excludes Circo) and got the shorts for free!!! The shorts were on clearance for $2.00 and the coupon rang up without any problems . My husband and I went back to Target after he got home from work with another $2 off coupon and we got another pair of denim shorts for FREE!!

  34. Found a pretty good deal on Enfamil today at my target. Buy 2 tubs get a $5 dollar gift card.

    2 $24.99 Enfamil tub
    -2 $5 Enfamil coupon from Target baby booklet
    -2 $5 Enfamil manufacturer coupon

    Total: $29.98 – $5gift card: $24.98 for two tubs

  35. Target today the cashier made me endure 9 transactions even though none of my coupons had limits. She said that the Target policy states that if you buy more than 1 like item using coupons they have to be rung up in different transactions. I was buying the airwick and firstaid, and wanted to buy the cookies, B3G1 free, and she said that if I want the free one then I can’t use coupons, otherwise she has to ring them each in their own transaction. So I asked what if I want to earn the gift card by buying say three of the same items w/coupon, she said it cant happen cause if you want to save with coupons you don’t get the deals. I wrote Corp. when I got home.

  36. Sorry no Picture but this deal was to good to let go unpublished if you Printed up the Target web coupon for $5 dollars off any denim pant then you can possibly get a pair of Merona Pants free here’s how…

    Merona Pants

    Original Price- $19.99

    Clearance to- $13.98

    Then again to- $9.98

    Then to- $4.98

    Use your $5 dollar off Denim Pant they become free but remember there is tax, But if you get a good cashier they will just make them free.

    I didn’t pay a cent this is a really good deal to get if you have the coupon I hope it works out for all of you.

  37. Inside the wristlet is also a $1 Target coupon, so if you have the UKotex coupons, you can use this new one (three coupons total on this purchase deal) on a second purchase. Making it 10.98 for 72 tampons plus another wristlet/tin. My girls liked this little bonus gift, nice cute trendy bag for keeping personal items inside a locker.

  38. I was wondering if that gift card was going to work with the printed Pampers. I saw them marked down at my Target too, but not the gift card deal. Maybe it will happen this week!

  39. So earlier in the week I found the Pampers prPnts box of diaper on clearance at 15% off and today when I went they were down to 30% off (13.85!), used 2- $2.00 off manufacture coupons, the Target insert for the $5 GC when buy any 2 PLUS received the $5 GC for this weeks deal making for an awesome deal 🙂
