      Once you factor in tax there is no money to be made but it is free.  Now if you have both the Target and manuf Qs you could make out with $2 profit on the deal.

        Finally someone else that thinks about the tax.  

    • January42003

      Already saying printed maximum allowed and since I haven’t printed any of those coupons yet, there are no coupons left. :( Sucks that this was just posted. :(

    • Hhbeverly

      I have GOT to remember to look at the SS comments before giving them all of my contact info!  NO MORE PRINTS – after giving them what they wanted!  

      • TOTALLY AGREE!!!!  Feeling scammed and will unsubscribe if I get any emails, I shouldn’t but still. 

        Ok, just called Curel and basically the response was “sorry, too bad”.

    • Debbie

      If you have a Target card you will get an additional 5% off the purchase!

    • DianneL

      Why doesn’t the scenario use 2 Target coupons and 2 MQs?

      • Troop949

        I was curious about that too…can you only use 1 Target Q per transaction (for like items)?  I rarely use Target Qs, so I wasn’t sure if they had that restriction.

      • Target coupons have a limit of one coupon per transaction.  That is what is printed on them but some cashiers do let two go through.  I have only ever used one.

        • Andia

          I knew this about Target coupons, but this particular coupon states “Limit one manufacturer and one Target coupon per item”.

          • greenluck2

            I have personally and at different targets used the mobile coupon, a target coupon, and a manufacturer coupon on 1 item.  They have never said it’s not allowed, nor have they questioned it.

        • Shaz

          does anyone know if this deal is gone?

      • Dawn

        I was just getting ready to type the same question, Dianne..lol

    • Deb

      No printable ones available!

    • laura

      Since I have never done a Target Gift Card thing, how does it work? Meaning getting the $5 gift card? Especially if it’s unadvertised.

      • DianneL

        You just buy the product that will produce the gift card, and when your sale has been rung up, along with the receipt, you’ll get the gift card. Target gift cards never expire, so that’s nice!

    • KC

      No more prints left :(

    • Don’t forget to take a reusable bag to save another $0.05 per bag used!

      • Jessica

        What? Really? Does it say it on your receipt? I usually bring in my own bag but didn’t know about this….

        • Ashlyn0481

          Yes it should always say on your receipt Target Coupon $.05. Make sure they scan their barcode that is usually located on the side of their computer for the $0.05.

          • Anonymous

            You can also get their Target RedCard (get the debit version, not the credit version). Has a PIN, comes straight from your checking account, and they give you 5% off all your purchases! LOVE this part :)

        • guest

          Make sure to give them the bags first – they have to scan before they start ringing

    • Kristin

      So if there is not sign by the Curel, will I still get the gift card? 

    • Kristin

      So if there is not sign by the Curel, will I still get the gift card? 

      • DianneL

        Take the Curel to a price scanner in the store. If there is a gift card attached to the product, the scanner will tell you.

        • Kristin

          Thank so much. 

        • Jen G

          Just an FYI. The scanners at our store do not tell you if a gift card is attached. The only way to tell at our store is to have them scan it first at checkout and see if a gift card is prompted.

    • ericswifeowensmom

      If anyone has extra Target inserts from the paper, I would really appreciate it. My email is andersoncouponmommy@gmail(dot)com I am willing to trade-I get several inserts but my paper never includes Target Q’s

    • Anonymous

      The Vaseline Lotion also had a gift card deal WYB 2,  use the B1 (20.3 oz or larger) G1 (13 oz or smaller coupon) you’ll pay $4.99 for the larger lotion, the smaller one is free and you get a $5 gift card.

      • my buddy’s sister makes $74/hour on the computer. She has been fired for 9 months but last month her pay was $7954 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here http://ufil.ms/jfiHL

      • Stef_ogunmola

        Gift card is wyb 2 big bottles or 4 smaller ones. Best scenario for this is buy 2 big and 2 small and use 2 b1g1 coupons. Total will be 10.08 and tax and you get a $5 gift card back. So net is 4 bottles of lotion approx. 70 oz. For $5.08.

        • Anonymous

          At my store it is buy 2 get $5 gift card on both sizes.

    • Anonymous

      It seeems like a better deal to use (2) $2 off coupons for both items…if you really don’t need the lotion you’re spending almost $5 just to get a $5 gift card.  Maybe its just me……

    • Dboatman87

      Is there a limit on how many gift cards you can get with this deal? I would like to get serveral if possible. Thanks

      • greenluck2

        I got 5 gift cards with no problems. :)

        • Dboatman87

          Thanks for the info.

      -$1 off Jergins natural glow or curel skin care lotion, (Target Coupon) SS 9/11not in the Lynchburg News & Advance paper

      • Anonymous

        Not in the St. Pete Times or the Tampa Tribune either :(

    • Jessica

      There were signs in front of the Curel stuff in my target. There was also a $2 off a foot lotion when you buy any Curel lotion 13oz or more on the product.  I didn’t use that…instead I got two lotions @ 2.99 used 2 $1 off manufacture q and 2 $1 off Target coupons which should have meant 1.98 OOP but looking back at my receipt it doesn’t look that way…another reason i don’t like Target b/c the screen is too far away to see what is going on.  Regardless, I paid $5 for 2 lotions, 2 Tazo teas and 2 reach floss and got a $5 gift card back :)

    • Ladybugpam

      KMART HAS A LITTLE BOOKLET OF STORE COUPONS, BUT THE LAST 3 PAGES ARE MANU Q’S AND THERE IS A $1 OFF CUREL Q IN THERE!!! you can find the little book at customer service or on the stand w/the weekly flyers.  Also has a $1 jergens q(great deal at rite aid this week!), an axe hair care q, and a $1 john frieda q(used those for the root lift foam on clearance @ target for $2.98, combine 2-$1manu q’s w/2-$3/2 target q’s and get the bottles for $0.50 each!!!) HTH:)

      • Ladybugpam

        *edit*only one $3/2 target q per 2 bottles, not 2.

    • Sylvia hix

      The downloadable coupons are gone.  Boo!

    • Ladydawn1001

      At Target purchase 2 large bottles of Vaseline lotion at approxiametly $5 each use $2/2 Vaseline coupon get $5 gift card OOP $3…great deal or purchase the smaller bottles as advertised in this Sunday’s paper at $2.99 each get back $5 card OOP $1.00

      • laura

        Where’s the $2/2 Vaseline coupon?

    • Fxvega

      Went to my local target close to my job and had to fight it out with the clerk…

    • scott moeller

      Can I buy the 2 lotions at 3.29, use (2) $1.00 off coupons and then use a $5.00 gift card that I got from something else and get this for free plus another $5.00 gift card?

      • Chris

        Yes – I do that all of the time.  I have, in fact, done several transactions and just rolled the gift card from transaction to transaction so I only end up with one at the end.  HTH

    • Dboatman87

      WARNING!!! I went to the Target in Conyers, GA on Hwy 20 and they told me I could only use one Man. coupon per transaction. I was very upset with that and it is so far the stupidest thing I’ve heard. Might try going back in a couple days to try a different cashier. Also they were out of a lot of the lotions and completely out of the smaller ones (the free ones).

    • Queenoffrugal

      I did a moneymaker today with Vitamin Water Zero.  It’s 10 for $10 and I used (10) 55c off 1 coupon and after getting the $5 Target gc I made 50c!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      The survey Q is back up :)

    • Chris

      Actually that’s one manuf and one store Q for the SAME ITEM.  Not one Q per transaction.  So no the cashier is incorrect.  The caveat is if the terms of the Q specifically limit to one Q per transaction or state cannot be combined with any other Q (so you can’t stack).

    • Chris

      Has anyone found the Target Q in the 9/11 SS from the AJC?  There were two that week and I can’t find the Target Q to save my life.  I could be blind and am missing it so if someone else has it from the AJC then I’ll know to go through each one very carefully again.  Thanks!

      • Anonymous

        I get the AJC and I didn’t find it either.  Don’t think your blind!!

        • Pdeals3

          I found the Target Q in the AJC. Somehow I ended up with 2 of them. Hoping my Target will have the lotions in stock and that the transaction goes smoothly!

        • Chris

          Thanks!  I went through both inserts 3xs (and I had 10 papers that week) and still didn’t see it so glad I wasn’t losing my mind.  Missing out on this one – oh well (you win some you lose some).  I did great with the Olay deal at Publix last night (on raincheck) so I’m happy with that.  Just wish Target would get some more of the Neutrogena bar soap in-stock so I can finish using my Qs!
