      I signed up for Tue Target mobile qs, but haven’t received the first one. I would love the $3/2 patene! Any ideas how to get it?

      • Doris

        You should have received a text back to welcome you to Target Mobile Coupons and then they periodically send you a text with a link which opens up the coupons in a browser. The cashier just scans the barcode right from the phone.

    • Kwolfe904

      Can you print them to use at competitors???

      • hazybuck

        If there’s a Publix close to your Target, Publix will honor ALL Target coupons.  Even the $$$ off you receive for a future purchase.

      Does anyone know anything about the toy markdowns to 70% off? Like, when does this typically happen…I know it’s typically a Wed or Thurs in July, but do they do it first thing in the morning, over night, when? And why in the world is it such a huge secret where they don’t even want to let their customers know about it…my Target’s response when I call is “we don’t know when it happens…it’s just whenever they come down in the gun”? I used to work in retail and I know this is not exactly the case…managers have a GREAT idea of what is going to happen. Plus, people have mentioned online they have seen their Targets organizing the clearance for the markdowns to come this week. Is it just my Target that’s being so difficult? So frustrating!

        It will be tomorrow. None of the stores ever say when it is. Just be there when the doors open in the morning with cart in hand.

      • Kishac20

        What kind of toys? Name brand? That we may have coupons for?

        • Savealotstella

          2-3 times a year, Target clearances some of their toys. Like, right now, ours has them marked down 30-50% off…just select toys…nothing in particular. What’s left from the 30-50% markdowns often goes to 70% off. And, it’s typically the last week in July and after Christmas. I saw a post on another coupon website that said something about October too, but that’s the first I’ve heard of that. I have no idea if there are coupons for the toys…there were too many kinds available to remember! I do remember My Little Pony, so some of them are name brand.

      has anyone used the shopkick app?

      • Darkshae

         I love shop kick.  You can use it to collect “reward points” that can be traded in for gift cards.

    • Darkshae

      Can these be combined with manufacturer coupons?

    • Ericarstephenson

      Since the shopkick coupon is technically a target coupon you cant stack that with a target printable right?
