There are many ways to save and even earn money while shopping at Target.
Lets start with a few important points from the Target Coupon Policy: Print the policy and keep it in your coupon binder.
Manufacturer and Target Coupons:
-Target accepts one Manufacturer Coupon and one Target Coupon for the same item (unless prohibited by either coupon).
-Item purchased must match the coupon description (brand, size, quantity, color, flavor, etc.).
-Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
-We can’t give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.
Internet (Print-at-Home) Coupons:
-We do not accept internet coupons for free items with no purchase requirements.
-Guests can receive Target Mobile Coupons by signing up for Text Alerts at Target.com/mobile or by texting COUPONS to 827438 (TARGET).
-To redeem, simply show your coupon barcode to the cashier. With one simple scan, all applicable coupons are applied.
Buy One Get One Free Coupons (BOGO):
-BOGO coupons cannot be combined (i.e. you cannot use two BOGO coupons on two items and get both for free). Unless stated otherwise on the coupon, the use of one Buy One Get One Free coupon requires that two of the valid items are presented at checkout of which one item will be charged to the guest and the 2nd item will be discounted by its full retail price.
-A second cents-off coupon of the same type cannot be redeemed towards the purchase price of the first item.
-If a Target BOGO coupon is used, one additional manufacturer coupon maybe used on the first item.
-If a Manufacturer BOGO coupon is used, one additional Target coupon may be used on the first item.
-We can’t accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in our stores.
Now here is what you Need to Know:
Here are a few pointers:
-Always go to the Customer Service Desk to do all price matches
-Pricing for products on Target.com may vary from Target stores and from the Target Weekly Ad. They do not match the price of online merchandise with the price offered by Target stores or another company, and Target stores do not match the price of our online merchandise.
-You need to bring in the competitors advertisement to prove the items description and price for the match.
When Price Matching – Manufacturer coupons will be applied after the price match is made.
Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price.
Combining both a Target and Manufacturer Coupons:
The Target coupon will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor’s price. Once the price match is made the manufacturer coupon will be applied.
A few signs that you will want to look for when shopping at Target:
A temporary price reduction advertised Sunday-Saturday and lasting up to 2 weeks.
-Temporary Price Cut
A temporary price reduction lasting 1-8 weeks.
A permanent price reduction advertised for up to 90 days.
A permanent price reduction often on discontinued inventory. Clearance prices are good while supplies last.
One thing to do when shopping at Target is to take your own bag. You will receive $.05 per bag that you use and you will be helping the environment at the same time.
As with anything, “practice makes perfect” so don’t be discouraged if you make a few mistakes. Sooner than later you will be a pro!
