    • ACW

      Thank you so much for putting together the Target list! I took advantage of the Keebler/CheezIt deal and the Gillette deal today. (The Sandies were not included at my location.) I was pleasantly surprised when I didn’t even have to ask about the gift cards. As my cashier rang up my order, the system signaled both times and she simply pulled out each card, swiped it, and handed it to me. I’ll be looking for these deals in the future; it was a wonderful shopping experience.
      As always, thanks again for all you do! :)

      • Michael Odell

        Target Gift Card Check!!!

        You and the Associate should see a big red screen pop on the register for the gift card when purchasing. If you don’t see it then there is something wrong with the transaction (may be not the exact items). This is before you pay so you have time to void.

    • Many of the fudge shop cookies at my store had $1/1 peelies on them. (Mq states “only redeemable at Target” so look for those!

    • There are $1.50 12oz+ mailer coupons for Starbucks and the Dec All You had the $1 as well as the printable on their site. Did this deal today. After GC used and earned, 8.50 for 3 bags!

      • Oh and didn’t see any free coffee coupons. They were all jumbled on the shelf though, so we didn’t sort through. DH and DS were with me!

        • Natalie

          The ‘coupon’ is actually printed on the top right corner of the bag, its not a detachable sticky.

          As far as the $5gc, is there a limit to how many you can get? What if I had 6 bags of coffee, do I automatically get 2 or do I have to do different transactions? Can I do 1 deal, get my $5gc, then do the deal again while both using and getting another $5gc?

          • I bought six bags but did two transactions. My cashier wasn’t sure if it would work on one, so I broke it up.

            Some of the bags at my store had $3/2 peelies.

            The free cup “coupons” aren’t really coupons – but most of the bags I saw were marked with it. It just has an icon in the front corner of the bag, and then the side panel explains that if you bring the empty bag to a Starbucks location within 30 days of the “use by” date printed, you’ll get a free tall brewed coffee.

    • Ann

      I’m not able to find the Kellogg’s all bran cracker coupon. I have been waiting for a coupon on this crackers! Any suggestions?

      • Kate

        Me too! I can’t find it either, any help?

      • Teri

        I got one a week or two ago but it appears they are gone now. (I got free crackers at Bloom since they are doubling up to $1.99.)

    • Megan

      Did not get the Glade $5 Target GC when I purchased 5 Glade scented oils at $2.50 each. Just wanted to “warn” everyone.

      • dawn

        It has to be the holiday ones.

      • Tonya

        I purchased the holiday tins and refills and did not get the $5 gift card either. I also just got a letter back from SCJohnson concerning my rebate and said the UPCs I sent in from this purchase didn’t meet the requiremnets for the $5 rebate.

        • Tonya

          My mom received a letter like this also. I thought from the rebate form it could be any of the glade products. She’s calling to verify. Have you called & been given any clarification?

        • Jason

          I bought the holiday jar candles and just got my rebate check today. I can’t imagine any reason it wouldn’t also work on the tins. Did you save a copy of what you submitted to check if maybe you transposed a number when copying the UPC?

      • MW

        I also did not realize that it had to be the holiday ones. I did ask the cashier though and she told me why I didn’t get one. She let me go back and exchange them :)

      • Liz

        I had a frustrating time at Target…the glade deal didnt work for me but the front end manager took me to the service desk and overrided it but then he didnt take off $2 of coupons…I decided to let it go, it was already a long day :) but still not as great of a deal as I thought I was getting. At least my CVS trip made up for it!

      • Bethany

        I too almost didn’t get my gc for the Glade deal. Fortunately, I had a nice cashier and she did an override. She wasn’t able to give me a gc but instead she gave me $5 off my transaction. Works for me! Once I get my rebates, I will have paid $3.27 for 2 tins and 8 refill packs! Yay for nice cashiers!

        • Becky

          yep i didn’t get the gift card either. When I went back to look they were all on sale for $2.50 but only the holiday candle was a giftcard if you bought 5. I also found out that the tins were not on sale and were $2.99 but one of my coupons took it off for free. So I got the tin and 4 refill packs for $3.50. I saved my candle coupons for Ingles because this week they are on sale for $2.34 :)

    • has anyone had trouble printing coupons for Target printables, I have been trying for 2 days on 2 different computers and printers and have had no luck downloading the coupon installer required for these. any suggestions, I have already contacted the coupons engine e-centives and waiting for a reply

      • Kristy

        I, too, have had trouble downloading the coupon installer! Frustrating, isn’t it?!? Hope you got it to work for you!!!

      • Danielle

        Hey Eileen,

        Try clicking on your “start” button then go to “settings” and click on faxes and printers. Right click on the printer you are trying to use and go to “properties” and click on the “advanced” tab. Unclick the button that says “keep printed documents”. You may have already done this, but if not, give it a shot. Hope this helps, it worked for me. :)

      • Anne Marie

        I have been having trouble printing them in internet explorer, but then switched to firefox and had no problem at all. Try that. HTH

      • Aurelia

        I to have been trying two different computers for two weeks now and getting very frustrated because I couldn’t print them as there are quite a few of them that I want. Both computers have IE. Am going to try and download another browser and see if that works.

      • Dana

        I had the same problem, What I did was: click on the button to install, when the “Run/Save” box pops up CLOSE all Internet windows, IE/FF whatever BEFORE you click “Run/Save”. Once the windows are closed then install. It worked for me. But when I tried to do it without closing the windows, even though it will tell you at the end you need to close them to install it, if you don’t do it before you get the message telling you to it won’t work. HTH!!

        • Eileen

          thank you this worked I appreciate the good advice!

        • Jodi

          Thank u Dana, i could never install this until i followed ur advice.

    • amy

      Where is the Cat treats store coupon?? It was not with the list on the target coupons page. Just wondering if this is a printout from the register or what?? Thanks.

      • amy

        Jenny, I found the cat treat coupon, but it states it is a manufacturer coupon and not a target one. It came off the target coupon page. Could you look into this and if so, you cant use both manufacturer coupons correct?? Just checking before I head out. Thanks bunches!!

        • Tonya

          I tried that last week with the Jergens lotion – I had one coupon from the Target website that said Manufacturer coupon and one I printed from another site and when the cashier rang it up it gave me the $1 off from one coupon and only 12cents for the other coupon.

      • Jenny

        Just fixed it, the link is there now :)

    • Aymie

      Does anyone know how Target is with printable free coupons??
      I printed both the bogo and the “free” Steaz coupon and am planning on using them together, but are they usually strict about this?

      • Stacey

        Hey Aymie, I used mine just a minute ago and they didn’t give any problems. They are really good about coupons at my Target.

    • Tanya

      Cheezitz and Glade are already out of prints. : (

    • Heather

      Jenny,
      The Swiss Miss Target web coupon also states one per transaction. Are they holding to that?

      • Jenny

        They don’t normally hold to it, sorry I didn’t mean to encourage anyone to use two though. I’ll fix it.

        I am all about following what the coupon says, if they let you use more, great if not you aren’t upset by it.

        • Tiffany

          Our Target is picky. If I get the wrong cashier they won’t let me use more than one of any printable coupon, not just Target. Good luck.

    • Annamarie

      WIll Target let you roll the offers like if I do the glade offer and then ring up the coffee offer and use the $5 gift card will they allow that?

      • Jenny

        Yes, they will :)

      • Do this all the time. I did it yesterday with the Starbucks, but am going to go back and do the Gillette/Venus. :-)

      • Amanda

        I went to Super Target in Orange Park Florida last night for the coffee deal, the candle deal and the fusion razor deal. I ended up walking out after getting frustrated in the check out line. The supervisor for the cashier didn’t know what they were talking about…they told me I could only use ONE coupon for TWO razors! Then I was told that because I bought the Boggle game and got the card deal for free….that well “you already have a freebie!”. They kept pulling out manufacturer coupons and telling me that since I was getting the gift card, I couldn’t use my coupons!!!!

        I walked out empty handed and will go to my regular Oakleaf store. I called store manager today and all she stated was that she would address the situation with them and apoligized to me. I’m telling all my friends not to shop there!!!

        • Annamarie

          THe more comments I read, it sounds like stores need to address the facts of coupons better with their employees. That stinks that this happened to you…lots of wasted time for nothing.

        • Michelle

          Thanks for the heads up. I too am a Jacksonville native and Orange Park is my closest Super Target. Any idea about the Roosevelt one?

        • LD

          That store has been that way for years and I mean years since it opened. I quit shopping there about 7 years ago for this reason . Each time you go it is a lot of energy and for almost each deal you do. The cashiers have always talked about the fact of getting things for free. I dont think the manager will do a thing as this same thing goes on years later. It doesnt seem to matter who you talk to a cashiers seem to have something about you getting it for free the super of cashiers try to use the one coupon of a kind story and the manager will always look into it . Funny to hear 7 years later they are still doing the same routine. If you dont shop at that store anymore you wont be the only one . It is not a coupon friendly store . I have hated hearing about that glade deal for months though and not being able to partake lol.

    • Rebecca

      I don’t know about other areas but being able to find the Glade tins is close to impossible here in Charlotte. They have told me the item is discontinued and they won’t be getting anymore. I’ve also been told that I can not “double up” the $1.50 and buy one tin, get one refill free q. They came close to calling me a thief and accusing me of coupon fraud. They said they had a corporate memo telling them they could no longer allow shoppers to use those coupons together. I was very nice and extremely civil (especially considering the circumstances) but by the end, I had the cashier, the assistant manager and the manager all over there telling me the same thing. They also said I couldn’t get it so cheap and get the gift card too because they don’t make any money. I of course said yes you do, you get reimbursed by the manufacturer with the coupons I’m giving you. OHHHH, I gotta stop, I’m getting myself upset again. Target can be such a pain in the tuckus! :D

      • Aymie

        I would call corporate. That isnt right they they were all accusing you of that. They need to reread their policy, it seems they dont know what theyre talking about!

      • That’s weird, because at my Target they are all in the main aisle on the end. There are only 2 or 3 scents though. I got apple cinammon because the others wouldn’t work with the coupons I had.

        • Oh and I’d print the coupon policy and take it to your manager. If they give you problems, go to Customer Service and call corporate with the manager.

        • Rebecca

          I didn’t call corporate but now that you say it, I should have. I’ve just heard to much about others calling and getting little to no results. I think its too late now because I couldn’t even tell you what day it was since it was over a week ago and I know I don’t know the names of the people I dealt with. I just know the cashier kept going, “uhh huhhh, uhhh huhhhh,” everytime I said something. That was the thing that sent me over the edge because I couldn’t get three words out without her muttering that annoying negative. I finally told her to stop saying uh huhh because everytime she said “uh huhh” she made me feel like she was saying I’m lying. I told her as nicely as I could that I would kindly like her to stop interupting with “uh huhhh.” That was as close as I came to getting heated but I can’t stand being interupted by someone saying the same stupid thing over and over, lol. I’m glad I did stand up though because as one poster said below, before I was empowered by SoutherSaver and Jenny’s helpful knowledge, I would have backed down. I might try to see if there are any Glade deals left but I won’t be back to that store for sure. I’ll bring the coupon policy with me too. :D Thanks for commenting on my Aymie and Alissabeth. :D

    • courtney

      Just to clarify the Glade deal….you have to buy to holiday scents to get the GC at Target; these are specially labels holiday collection and include the apple cinnamon, french vanilla, gingerbread and bayberry. Even though they make an apple cinnamon and vanilla scent it has to be the holiday marked package or it will not prompt for a GC. The stores I have shopped in Cumming/Alpharetta are pretty much sold out too so HTH.

      • Kathy

        I can not figure out which coupons to use and end up paying only $1.50. I come up that you have to pay $4. can you help?

        • sara

          I think the $1.50 is because you get back $5 in Gift Card money. It is calculated at part of the savings.

          • sara

            Be sure to look in your previously purchased Gillette Fusion products (if you are not using them as gifts) for great coupons that you could use on this deal. I found some in mine!

    • ashley

      anyone know if there is a way to be able to print out targest coupons when your using windows 7? Ive missed out on lots of good coupons because of the windows 7, someone mentioned that you could change a setting in your computer and be able to print them , does anyone know if this is true?

      • melissa

        I am getting MAD cuz i am having the same problem!!! ive lost money cuz I have not been able to print for 3 weeks and I can use mine at publix, plus i am not going to drive to tallahassee to target without good coupons each time i see coupons i get more and more frustrated with target! SOMEONE find a fix!!!

        • ashley

          i hated not being able to print off the $5 off of the kelloggs cereal, it would’ve been like $.75 per box with the sales!!! So much for buying a new computer to simplify thigs, i also had to buy a new printer because my lexmark (5 months old) wouldnt connect and install with windows 7. Im going to check the one site that i noticed someone saying how they went through and got around the issue… ill post it if i can find it

      • Erin

        I’m having the same problem thanks to Windows 7. Any help would be apppreciated!

        • Julie Ann

          I did Windows 7 a while back and had the same problem. I just re-loaded the old version. It was “costing” me way too much to upgrade.

      Is anyone else having this issue: can only print one of the Target coupons no matter how I do it. If I click the back button, it says it is printing but nothing happens. if I click “back to coupons” button, the coupons are gone. HELP!!

      • marina

        Someone told me they reset their limits to 1 coupon on a lot of them. I’m not sure how accurate that is, but I’ve only been able to print one lately.

        • sarah D

          thanks – I thought the same thing but wanted to check out what others were saying

    • sara

      This posted in wrong area the 1st time:

      Be sure to look in your previously purchased Gillette Fusion products (if you are not using them as gifts) for great coupons that you could use on this deal. I found some in mine!

    • amy

      what zip code will give me the 1.50 cracker coupon?

    • Carrie

      Know Target policy. Learn it, *know* it. Correction, know coupon policy, and then learn the store policy of where you plan to use your coupons at. Each store varies a little in regards to store coupons, but a manufacturer coupon remains the same across the board.

      Last week I was put to the test by an ignorant cashier of coupon policy at Target. Being ignorant of something does not imply you are stupid, it simply means you do not have knowledge of whatever the topic. I had several Reach flosses, which were priced at .97 and then I used the same number of manufacturer coupons that were $1 off one. The cashier tells me this will not work, the item would be for free. I educate her in Coupon-ish. (Now that I have learned about coupons myself- the old me would have said sheepishly… “okay”.) I told her, the manufacturer coupon covers the $1 cost that they have stated, and I told her she might have to adjust down the price in her machine to make it work at Target. She continues to tell me, “No. It’s not going to take it. See? It beeps and that means it will not work.” Regardless of the people accumulating behind me, I asked for the manager. The manager actually comes over and teaches the cashier how to adjust down the price in the computer so that it would take it. She had never learned this until now and had I not known the policy, I would have walked away assuming the coupons wouldn’t work. Know that manufacturer coupons are like holding actual money. :)

      You are not stealing, the companies give out their own merchandise to those who are wise. They make up more than the difference, plus you will learn a lot of what is sold is not actually worth the price sticker on it. It is hard for me to allow my youngest daughter to spend her money at the store. No concept whatsoever and she’d gladly spend sticker price to satisfy her want!

      Adding store coupons to manufacturer coupons is another subject but almost the same once you know (in this case) Target policy. I think they might keep this policy… despite all the changes they’ve made to it in the past few weeks.

      Hey everyone I’m not sure if Jenny has posted this anywhere but Target has the Boggle game on sale for 12.00 there is a $5.00 off q in the USA Weekly.(didnt find it in my local Sunday paper maybe b/c my town is smaller but my hubby works with a lady that gets the Tallahasse Fl newspaper and it was in there) Ray Ramano is on the front cover. It also has a $10.00 off q for the Diamond Scrabble which is I think $30 something. Also if you buy any Hasbro game $10.00 or more you get a free Hasbro card game.
      So today I bought the Boggle game and The Scrabble card game, Paid $7.84
      the free card game will come off automaticaaly @ the reg. They also give 5% of your purchase to the Salvation Army.

      • Melissa

        Sorry Guys! It’s USA Weekend not Weekly

    • Jessica

      CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME? I received a $5 of off $25 any baby purchase coupon in the mail today from Target. They also sent me (in the same flyer) several smaller Target coupons such as $2 off Pampers Jumbo pack or larger. Can I use these little Target coupons with the $5/$25 coupon? Can I stack a manufacturer’s coupon (like $1.50 off Pampers PG 11/29) with a target coupon and still use the $5/25? I also have a $5 off Luvs coupon that I have been saving that I think would be pretty sweet with this deal. Does anyone know if I can do this or not? Thanks!

      • Natalie

        YES! I got a similar mailer a month or so ago and was able to do what you are hoping to do. I scored some great deals. I bought Pampers, some Johnson & Johnson’s stuff, Up & Up baby food, etc. I used a bunch of Manufacturers coupons and some Target coupons from the same mailer and it worked just fine. I don’t know if it made a difference or not, but I asked the cashier to scan the $5/$25 first. No problems! Good luck.

        • Jessica

          Thanks!

      USA Weekend: 2 High Value Hasbro Game Coupons + Target Deal!
      Heads up–Don’t throw away your USA Weekend! There are two Hasbro game coupons inside! One is for $10 off Diamond Scrabble and the other is for $5 off Boggle!

      Target has Boggle on sale for $12 this week, so just $7 after the $5 coupon! Plus, advertised on the front page of the Target circular is–buy any $10 or more Hasbro game, get any Hasbro card game free! That means that you’ll have spent a total of $7 on Boggle and a Hasbro card game! Sweeeeet!

      **The card game will come off automatically at checkout!

    • Jess

      TO EVERYONE WHO HAS WINDOWS 7 AND WHO IS HAVING PROBLEMS PRINTING COUPONS:

      My husband has worked on computers for 10+ years and he says that the software (couponprinter or others) that we use on Target and other websites has not been updated yet to run on Windows 7 since it is so new. So if you want to be able to print all coupons, he recommends going back to either Vista or XP until the software is updated (or finding a computer to use that has Vista or XP). Hope this helps!

      • Dana

        I have Windows 7 and it works fine.

        I had the same problem when I tried to install it, what I did was: click on the button to install, when the “Run/Save” box pops up CLOSE all Internet windows, IE/FF whatever BEFORE you click “Run/Save”. Once the windows are closed then install. It worked for me. But when I tried to do it without closing the windows, even though it will tell you at the end you need to close them to install it, if you don’t do it before you get the message telling you to it won’t work. HTH!!

    • Elizabeth

      Ok, for those doing the Glade deal. I went tonight and used the Qs that Jenny supplied and my total came to $2.08 (after Qs including tax…our tax is 7.75%)
      The only thing is my target does NOT have any of the holiday scents, which are the only ones that qualify for the $5 GC, GRRRRR.
      However, with the SC Johnson Rebate it’s still a money maker and I do like the french vanilla scent.
      So overall I’m satisfied, but was really wanting the GC! GRRR

    • ashley

      Jenny or anyone else:

      I’m confused about the Hasbro Game deal. Do I use the Buy hasbro game, get card game free coupon first AND the $5 Boggle coupon?

      Therefore, does that mean I get a $5 discount on Boggle with 2 card games for free?

    • Jodi

      I will be making my first transaction tomorrow at Target to get the cat treats. I read the Target rules, but it doesnt mention overage. so if i just get the cat treats, will the computer automatically adjust to meet the price or do i need to buy a filler item?

      • ashley

        Anytime you go in to overage, you need to pick up something to cover it. If you were negative $3 in overage then buy something you want that costs $3 dollars.

        • Carrie

          That’s assuming the cashier does not pin point the difference in price to coupon ratio, is so they adjust the coupon down to match the price. The Target here keeps having their meetings to update their employees on all the coupon memos and I personally think the cashiers are spooked.

    • amy

      if this is legal..could someone give me a zip code that will pull up the cracker 1.50 kellog coupon and the ghirdelli candy? THANK YOU

      • jill

        I wonder if they’re gone. My zip (43230) worked for the Ghiradelli one the other day but when I just checked it wasn’t there. Not sure.

    • jill

      Unless it’s just a regoinal variation or something, the Ghiradelli peppermint bark that was on sale for $2.50 at my Target (in Ohio) was the 3 oz. package. The manufacturer’s coupon specifies that it must be 4 oz. or greater.

    • Susan

      Just got back from Target and got the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince blu-ray, dvd, digital copy combo pack for $10. Price is currently $19.99. I had them price match Walmart’s price of $15 and then used the $5 off any blu ray Target coupon.

    • I just left the Target on Fairview Rd in Simpsonville. Angel was my cashier. If you have the Bath Buddies coupon, go in another line. She was happy and smiling with the lady in front of me and when she saw my stack of coupons, her facial expressions IMMEDIATELY changed. You all know the type. She handed me all of my J&J coupons and said “you can’t do that. The item is only 0.97 and this coupon is for 1.00. That won’t happen”. Rather than battle with her, I politely said “Ok, no problem” and went over to customer service where they promptly gave me a refund for the $3.88 that she refused to take off. I fail to understand why cashiers take it upon themselves to be robo-coupon-cop sometimes. I am so thankful for all the WONDERFUL store employees that are out there. THANK YOU!!! It’s a shame that there are still a few that are on a mission to make couponers miserable. Anyway, it was a great trip. I picked up the Diamond Scrabble game, the Boggle game, 2 free card games, 5 glade candles, 5 bags of Hershey’s Kisses and Jingles candy, 4 Bath buddies, and Swiss Miss Hot cocoa for $41. Now I can cross off 2 more Christmas gifts. Yipppeee! And by the way, if you plan on using the 0.50 printable Target coupon, you can’t use it on the ones that are on sale for 2.50 because they are not 12 oz. The 12oz bags are 4.59 each.

      • amy

        Hey Rita.. this is the one I go to!! Well, shall I say.. USED to go to!! I have just about had it with Target and refuse to go there anymore. I think the kicker was when they secretly changed their price match policy during the whole alphabet toy thing. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw what Target had done. I still have the “old” policy in my files just to remind myself how low Target is!!

        • ashley

          Hi Rita and Amy! Simpsonville couponer here too.

          I was in Target about the same time you were Rita and the boggles were all gone. Did you catch the last ones or were they in a special place by chance?

          FYI A big, black guy cashier gives me no problems at all with coupons and he’s there all the time lately!

          • ashley

            Let’s get each other’s emails if you want you guys, that way maybe we can help keep each other informed!

            • Nick

              I hate Target. I’ve went there with coupons in hand about a dozen times over the last year and every time have been given attitude. CVS and Kroger now get 99% of my business. I only go to Target now to abuse them with deals they lose money on.

    • Tanya

      The 12 packs of Cokes in Cumming, Ga are $3.33, not the $2.75. Oh well.

      • JenGC

        Yeah my Target had about 50% of these deals. I was VERY upset with them not having the Command hooks on sale. I had trouble today anyway with the cashier. She had a problem with the Cat treat coupon so she cashed me out and said “go to the service desk for help”. Seriously?? Of course I was behind someone else that had a lengthy process. Then the service desk gave me my $2 back! grrrr

    • Ashley

      I was absolutely appalled at the Woodruff Rd. store to find 3 plastic Glade candle holder packages completely ripped opened and damaged so that someone could take out the $1.50 coupons Jenny has told us about.

      I have swiped a peelie or two before but never, ever would even think to destroy a package for a coupon!

      You really ought to be ashamed whoever you are. Let’s hope you are at least an adolescent and not a grown woman.

      • Nick

        Every glade coupon was gone at the store I went to today. There were coupons on Keebler cookies though. The cookies they were on didn’t qualify for the $5 card but the $1 coupons could be used on cookies that did. I took one.

        Tried doing the Glade deal but they didn’t give me the $5 card even though everyone I bought was marked as such. I’m returning it all tomorrow.

    • sara

      I am really wanting the Boggle game and Monopoly coupon. Any ideas on snagging one of each. I remember seeing them in the USA Weekend paper thing, but can’t locate the coupons anywhere. I can’t remember if I clipped them or not. FRUSTRATING!!!

      • sara

        So, I had this idea that my USA Weekend paper MIGHT be in the recycle bin(only paper)outside by my trash can…It has been raining here for a couple of days. So, on my way to the car this morning, I carefully lifted a couple of the newspaper pages just to see if I could catch an easy glimpse of it. My neighbor was outside seeing his wife off to work. And of course he commented that now i was going through wet trash! LOL! Funny dude. Got in my car and left. Is that going overboard for a Boggle and Monopoly coupon? Should I just give up?

    • sara

      QUESTION:

      If I do more than one “get a gift card” deal at one time, do I get one large gift card, or do they give you one for each $5 (or whatver) you earn?

      • Heather

        Sara, they give you one for each deal. So you may walk out with 3 or 4 of the $5 cards.

        • sara

          Thanks, those would make great little stocking stuffers for the kiddos.

      • RebeccaF

        If you ever do get a bunch of small ones and you want to consolidate it onto one card, just takes them to customer service and they’ll do it.

    • sara

      NEED QUICK RESPONSE:

      I am making a target trip this afternoon. On Redplum there is a $1 off Johnson’s Baby product. Coupon says Manufacturer’s Coupon BUT also says Good only at Walgreens. So which is it and will Target accept it? I have read Target’s policy Jenny posted but this one covers two issues. HELP!!

      • RebeccaF

        It really should work at any store that takes Manufacturer’s coupons since it is NOT a Walgreens coupon but Target can be hit or miss with their customer service. I would try it but be prepared if it doesn’t work.

        • sara

          Thanks!

    • RebeccaF

      I’m at the library right now and I have to say that I am extremely disappointed with Target yet one more time. I don’t know why I’m surprised since they do everything in their power to be as difficult as possible to couponers. I have just discovered that not only can I print just one of most of their Target coupons but it is impossible to get any extras at your public library since you can’t install their program on them since I do not have administrative controls. It actually comes up with a prompt telling me to go home and use my own computer! They are stingy with the coupons now, difficult with price matching and I’ve had too many run ins with cashiers who just are angry the moment they see a coupon or two. I am soooo sorry I bought a gift card to Target because I’d like to say its not worth shopping there anymore. Once I’ve finished using the gc, I’m done with Target!
