Clipping 4 His Kingdom: Target

For this blog we are basically going to give you an overview of how to use in store coupons and stack your manufacturers coupons to capitalize on the best savings for your comfort level.

Target

Target has in-store coupons that can be paired up with manufacturer coupons for even more savings! You can print these coupons at Target.com and you can also sign up for target mobile coupons that are sent to your phone and then scanned off your phone at checkout. On Target’s home page click on the coupon basket icon and then scroll through the coupons and select the ones you want. You will be able to print two coupons off each computer or phone (if you can print from your phone).

Target has quite a few “rules” so, before going for your first coupon adventure as a newbie I highly recommend getting familiar with its Corporate Coupon Policy and Price Matching Policy. You always want to hand over all manufacturer coupons FIRST–before Target store coupons. This technique will minimize coupon beepage–which we couponers try to avoid at all costs!:-)“Beep” is Bad!

When shopping, keep your eyes peeled for red clearance stickers, peelie and tearpad coupons, price cuts, and other discounts! By combining these types of sales with coupons, you can score some sweet deals!

Promotions to watch for while shopping or while flipping through the weekly ads:

Target Gift Card deals! These gift card promotions may last for a week, month, or even longer. They may be posted inside the store but not in the circular – so be on the lookout! To access a Target Gift Card, you usually have to buy certain participating products – and by doing so, you receive the card at check out. The cashier will be prompted by the register to give you a gift card. You won’t be able to redeem the gift card on the order that you earn it on but you can split your orders up and use the gift card that way or simply save them for future visits or Gifts.

Example:

This week you can get a $5 gift card with a purchase of 2 Purina items listed.
Purina Cat Chow complete or indoor formula 16lb  $10.99
Purina One Cat or Dog Food 8lb $10.99
Deal Idea:  Buy 2 bags of the Purina Cat Chow complete ($10.99) = $21.98
Use Target Coupon for $5/2 Purina Dog food 11lb+, Cat Food 13lb +, or Tidy Cats 35lb+  X6/30/12
Use 2 Manufacturer coupons $0.55/1 Purina kitten or cat chow 3lb+ bag x7/15/12
Total $15.88 and receive a gift card for $5
Total after Gift card is $10.88 or like getting each bag of Cat food for 55% off!!

Non Couponers

Even if you don’t want to use the Target or manufacturer coupons the gift card deals are an easy hassle free way to save money! Target also has a debit or credit card that you can sign up for at the service desk that will save you 5% on purchases. It’s a free coupon that you never have to cut out or remember to give them!
