  1. Just scored an awesome deal today on a BRITA water bottle! On price cut at my store for $8.89, I used a Target coupon for $3 off Brita water bottle filter system along with another $3 manufacturer’s coupon that I got for signing up on BRITA.com and taking the pledge!) The Manufacturer coupon says it can be used on any BRITA pitcher OR filter system! Both coupons scanned nicely and I got my water bottle for a little less than $3! (**ALSO when my receipt printed up I got a coupon for $5 off a BRITA waterbottle!**) I for sure will be going back to get a water bottle for even less!!! Just thought I would share, since I have learned so much and gotten so many deals from this site and by reading the comments!!

  2. Hi I was just looking online at Target and they had the Simple face creams on price cut for $5.99 I am not sure if it is also for instore too, but I thought I would post it anyways.

  3. Target in Hunters Creek, FL always clears items off the shelf so you can’t use retailer coupon along with manufacturer coupon PMO !!!

  4. I just my coupons in the paper the free paper and they had several Target Store $5.00 of two shick razors mens and womens dispoables and well as on the refillable razors which combined with the gift card deal would be a better deal , but I think the Shick deal ends today.

  5. Yes if you forget to use a coupon you can take in your receipt to guest service and they can apply it and give you the cash for the coupon. I believe it has to be within 7 days of the purchase. Just tell them you have a “missed coupon”. Happens at least 20 times a day at my Target.

  6. I haven’t seen anyone mention the diaper genie gift card deal that is going on right now. I purchased tow diaper genie refill 2-packs and got a $5GC. Awesome for those using the diaper genie!

  7. Just came from Target…spent way too much. The Chef Boyardee are 1.09 at my store but I still got the 6 and the Ore Ida was as stated but the Stouffers was 7.99 not 5.99 and the only veggie that they had was sugar snap peas. My store is in the East and it is a regular Target not a Super so maybe that is why.
    I also forgot to use 2 coupons, does anyone know if I take my receipt and coupons if guest services will reimburse me?

  8. I was just at Target and they had Caress Body Wash on clearance for $3.38 for the large bottle with a small travel bonus size. It is normally $3.99 each. What a great deal!! Each large bottle is $3.99 and the travel is $0.97 each. I rec’d $14.88 in product for $5.25 after my $5 gift card.

  9. lately the words on my target coupons havent been printing neither the barcode numbers. the barcode still print and so does the expiration date and target web coupon. anyone else have this problem?

  10. Just a heads up. My target has some Dove Men care on clearance because they have the bonus deodorant samples. They are $2.82. I combined them with my $2.00 off coupons making them only $.82 each. And bonus they are in the $5 gift card deal making them a $2.54 money maker when you buy 3!!!!! You get 3 body washes, 3 travel sized deodorants and they pay you to take them out of the store. Look in your binders and in those clearance isles.

    Also, Bic razors are on clearance for $2.54. I had BOGO coupons for a max value of $7.99 off. Target rang my coupons through at the $7.99 max. Every time I bought 2 it was a $2.91 MM. Happy shopping everyone.

  11. I work at Target,right now there is so many deals for free gift cards that you do have to read the fine print.You can not put together a item from one deal with another item from another deal and get the gift card.Guest’s are getting this confused.Rachel is right that sometimes the computer is not promgramed right.That makes it just as hard for the frontend as the Guests.

  12. Hey Christine, if it is printed in the ad and in print under the item on the shelf, you are in the right. It can be intimidating/embarrassing/etc and certainly a hassle since you are doing things right and they just don’t have it in their computer, but ASK for a manager when the cashier just looks at you like sorry there’s nothing I can do. If the shelves have been pretty well emptied I find shoppers or workers sometimes put other things near/in the wrong place. So be sure to check the size and other descriptions that are on the sale tag and the item tag underneath. It is actually illegal for a business to have it marked on the shelf for a deal/price and not give it to you, so a manager should be able to fix any issues with your purchases.

  13. Has anyone else had problems with items not ringing up as part of the deal? This happens to me almost every time I try to take advantage of the specials to get the Target gift cards. For instance the ad clearly stated that you get a $5 gift card when you buy selected All, Cottonelle and Glad products. I had the Cottonelle toilet paper, Glad trash bags, and Puffs tissues (each one of them had the description underneath them saying they were included in this offer, but when I went to the cashier I didn’t get the gift card and the cashier was not helpful. The same thing happened with the Colgate toothpaste. I purchased 2 Optic White Toothpastes and a pack of toothbrushes that all said they were included in the offer and there was no gift card ??? Lastly, I tried to buy 3 Neutrogena face soaps and the same thing happened. There is no way that all of these items were in the wrong place!! I am so frustrated with Target because of this! Is this happening to anyone else?

  14. Hey Kyle was in Tampa & Colmbia MD- you can always bring them up to register and ask them to look it up in the system. deals can be regional- but sometimes just missing the sign.

  15. Hey Marie- make sure you are looking by the shelf stable pizza items- NOT the refrigerated ones. look by the pizza crust, pizza sauces and grated parmesan cheese on all on a regular shel. hth- have it notes as the shelf stable ones above

  16. FYI, I was in a Richmond, VA store on Sunday and the Hormel pepperoni packs were NOT included in the B10G1 $5 gift card (select Mexican, Italian & Pizza items)

  17. Hi, I’m just wondering where you saw the Hebrew National 2/$7 deal with free mustard. I don’t see it in the ad in Chicago. Thanks! Kyle

  18. A few days ago I received in the mail (Ithink) a flyer with a $10.00 coupon off a $75.00 purchase on the back. Anyone know where I can get another one?? It said “Gifts for you” on the front.

  19. I found coupons for the playtex tampons, Buy 1 Get 1 free. They were priced at 6.99 at my store, so if a person has enough coupons they could get all 6 boxes for 10.97 after the gift cards or 1.82 a box!

  20. I found a deal on the hot pockets/lean pockets. If you buy 5, you get a free 2 liter Pepsi product.
    Deal ends 11/24, I believe.

  21. dr. scholls has a new coupons same values that came out SS 10/13 so you can use them on that deal but today is the last chance to get womens and a the massaging gel insoles free. both are $3 coupons there is also a $3 pain relief one but not sure if that will be free or just fairly cheap.

  22. Yes, if you use the BOGO coupon on this scenario both refills will be Free, but you can also use one target coupon, because you are only purchasing one item. Out of pocket no more than $1.99+tax.

  23. Thank you for the great deals. I have a question as to how Target handles deals if they are the same
    as a manufacturer coupon for BOGO free deals. Example
    I have a coupon for this scenario located in Better Homes in Garden Oct editon.
    Where the coupon reads Buy a Glade Expression Starter kit ($3.99) and get the refill free.
    Target deal is:
    SPECIAL PURCHASE: FREE Glade Expressions Mist Refill ($1.99) wyb StarterKit ($2.99)
    Deal & prices valid through 10/13. Deal & Prices may be regional.
    -$1/1 Glade air care item ETS & 8 oz Aerosol Target Coupon x10/5
    -$2/2 Glade Products excluding 8 oz Spray & Solid Air Fresheners
    -$2 off any Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist Starter Kit

    Would I buy 1 Glade Expression Starter kit and get 2 refills free?

    Thank you.

  24. For the 2 pack toothpaste crest can you use 1/2 coupon when you buy one 2 pack of toothpaste?

  25. Today only if you get the early edition papers, you can add a $10.00 off coupon to the Nicorette deal!

  26. @Danii- my scenarios always go by wording on the coupons- the Target coupon states limit one coupon per person

  27. DEAL IDEA: Buy 2 Schick Hydro Razors ($9.49) = $18.98
    -$2/1 Schick Hydro Silk Razor or 5 ct Cartridge Target Web Coupon x7/14
    -$8.00 (use two $4/1 Schick Hydro Silk Razor or Refill 5-13-12 SS x6/24
    =$8.98 – $5 Gift Card Back wyb 2
    = $3.98 for 2 or $1.99 each after coupons & Gift Card

    Can you not use (2) of the $2/1 target coupons since you’re buying 2?
    This would make your total coupons = 12.00 which would make your total before tax 6.98 for 2!
    Then you get 5.00 back so you would have 1.98 for 2 which makes them $0.99 each!

  28. My Target has all of the Huggies and Pampers 15%off right now. The manager told me they will continue to mark them down until the “new” ones come in. The new ones for both companies will have fewer diapers at a higher price. So, if you are in need of diapers you should check your store to see if they have been put on clearance yet.

  29. My store had the scrubbing bubbles deal going on early in the week and I ordered coupons thinking I had until the 12th. I got them today and was excited to get my items when by my surprise the deal was over! ::So bummed::

  30. On this gc promotion “FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 3 Select Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Refills $3.99” can you use the target q that states “$1 off with purchase of two Scrubbing Bubbles cleaning items”? Not sure if the refills are considered a cleaning item.

  31. If you are going to do the playtex tampon deal there is a promo going on to where you can receive a free cosmetics bag designed by Stephanie Johnson completely. Here is the link to the pdf form http://www.playtexpromo.com/order_form.pdf You need to by only 2 playtex items but as you kno to get the gift cards from target you must buy 3 playtex tampons

    Happy Couponing

  32. Anybody 100% sure that the Loreal Preference hair color qualifies for the $5 gift card my targets signs have been extremely inacurate in that section.

  33. Does anyone know if Target has been doing an unadvertised deal for a $5 giftcard with a $50 purchase? I have two friends who reported getting $5 GC’s but didn’t purchase any of the things listed. Neither even had more than one of any item so no idea how they got the GC’s.

  34. somebody answer me a question- I plan on making a run to Target-if you have a target coupon and it states off of (2) and you have (2) manufacturer coupons -state off of (1) will the 2nd coupon “beep me”

  35. hi donna, i think its vitamin water, a 4 pk. and the beauty bag is hanging with the 4 pk….:)

  36. Just wanted to add that I bought the toliet cleaning gels and there were coupons printed inside the box for
    the cleaning gel and -.55 on the Fanstick Scrubing Bubbles.
