There’s a nice little surprise this month if you are a Target shopper.  You can grab a Free Spring beauty bag with samples and coupons at the Target sample spot.  However, to request the bag you must enter a code which can be found on the bottom of your Target receipt when you buy participating items.  Unfortunately, no one seems quite sure which items are included, but keep checking your Target receipts to see if you got a code!

If you find any products that trigger a code, leave a comment!

      If anyone gets an extra code, and wouldn’t mind sharing, I’d like to have it. We don’t have a Target:( within 30 miles of us. andersoncouponmommy@gmail.com

      • Ancpercival

        Same here please. Living in the boonies here.

        • Chloemcgillicuddy

          • Plbblblblblblblt

            Yes I would love a code too please! I spent 66 bucks at Target today and didn’t get one.. It sucks.

    • brittany

      I bet it pops up if u buy make up

    • Kaylaculwell

      Aww, I don’t shop at target… I am considering going for okay soap deal though!

      • Kaylaculwell

        Olay* lol. Darn you autocorrect!

      • Ctrinkle

        I bought the olay soap today and no code.

    • CouponingCollegeStudent

      I would suggest buying something from john frieda, maybelline, pond’s, burt’s bees, etc… since these are the brands that have been sampled in the past.

      • zadidoll

         I bought three Maybelline Tattoo shadows and it was a no go with those items.

    • Almost

      We have a distribution center, but no store for almost 50 miles!!!  I still drive there just to shop!

      • sheryl

        Are you in Lake City by chance? We are in Lake City, fl and the same way!!  We have a distribution center but the closest target is 50 miles away!

    •  I would guess that we have to purchase one of the items listed “Nivea, Nexxus, Pantene, L’Oreal, Neutrogena, Simple”

    • Man I just bought something online today. But nothing on my “confirmation” email. Bummer.

    • Sharon

      Just a thought…… do you think a competitor’s product might trigger the code? I’ve noticed that catalinas work like this somethimes.

    • Melrose

      Here is what Target says on their Target Style facebook page in response to numerous questions as to what products qualify for this promotion:  “Select beauty products will lead to the code being printed. We’re sorry we can’t provide you any additional assistance to help you get a code.”  In other words they are not saying anything!

    • Farrahandwes

      I bought Pantene today, and no code!

    • Fatcatkaraoke

      maybe you have to spend a specific amount in the beauty dept

    • Guest

      I bought Herbal Essences, Revlon, Aussie, and Garnier Fructis but no code.

    • i just read in another blog that a person bought waffles and milk and got the code and will recieve the bag in 8-10 weeks

    • Bhutson721

      I didn’t buy any beauty products. I bought underwear and sunglasses and i got one!!! i spent over 25.00 so maybe you spend a certain amount but deff. wont print with you just buying beauty products. Maybe it’s a frequent shoppers get one.

      • Gaileileen

        Hi, just wondering, if your code worked, would you mind sharing it with us on here? It may only work once, but it’s worth a shot…especially since everyone is spending tons of cash for nothing….personally….my nearest Target is almost an hour away…I would spend more in gas alone, than the samples are worth…not to mention anything I bought, with no promise of a code…just an idea..thanks for reading! : { )

    • JenB33

      This should be interesting because, I spent over $25 today bought a variety of items including beauty, pet, and home products and did not get a code.
      :(  Will definitely keep trying, though!

    • Jenniehartzler

      I bought Redken today and no code.

    • Wilk350

      Funny…like someone else here, I purchased underwear today (Hanes) and I got a Catalina with the code.  I also purchased Up & Up generic Zyrtec, some hamburger and hot dog buns and some clearanced thank you notes.  I spent about $21, so I wasn’t over the $25 mark.  This one is giong to be tough to figure out!

    • Ratones67

      Purchase today Target version of Triaminic which actually falls under “Health-Beauty-Cosmetics” and Band Aid, but no code : ( 

      Target will have us guessing but they won’t tell.

    • Nathalie

      I got one this morning. It doesn’t print on your cash register receipt, it’s one of the “coupons” that prints after your transaction.  I didn’t buy any beauty items nor do I usually buy beauty items at Target so I doubt that it’s a pre-requisite. I did pay with my Target RedCard (Visa). I bought 2 boxes of cat litter (the 40 lbs Arm and Hammer ones), 2 bags of Klondike Rose Potatoes, 2 bottles of Mio Water Enhancer and I used several Target and manufacturer coupons.  I just entered the code for the sample bag and it wouldn’t work using IE8, had to use Chrome for it to take.  I shopped at the Clermont, FL SuperTarget. HTH!

    • Nathalie

      To add to my previous comment: Reading the rest of the comments of people trying to guess how to get one… I’m not a frequent shopper, I go there maybe twice a month sometimes less. My total was $37.52.  It seems to be that it’s more a random thing than anything else…  good luck!

    •  Made 2 different purchases today, both well over $25, with a variety of items. Still no code…

    • JustTheFlax

      No code :(….I bought Target contact solution, 2 Orbit Gum packs, Cottonelle freshmates (with coupon), Suave Keratin Infusion shampoo (used coupon to get it FREE), and a Target liquid handsoap.

    • Mimfour

      i work at target. the code for the beauty kit in the store for tn is a catalina coupon from the printer box not the register itself. A lady bought a shovel and some caulk so this appears to be a random coupon that prints out no matter what is bought

      • Cherrycupcake93

        are all the codes different?

    • ESG1492

      made purchase and thought number at bottom was code. I went on line and tried to enter code and the website would not respond and there was no place to put code although they told me to enter it. Called customer service and she spent a half hour with me and she could not find the  page  

    • Nikmbarker

      Stopped at Target today, bought Revlon lip butter, M&M’s, Jr Mints, Hershey bar and Starburst (my kids were with me!) spent $7 something and got a catelina with code! 

      • Cherrycupcake93

        what was ur code?

    • Katrinaschmidt

      Hey everyone, just wanted to say that i received a code today at my target. It actually comes from the coupons that print out at the checklanes. I bought junior mints.

    • Guest

      Spent $126 yesterday at Target and used Red Card – no code.  To those who listed they got a code, can you post it se we can see if there is a “universal” code or if it’s receipt-specific?

    • Tiffanyandnick

      I got a code and I bought 2 toddler shirts….nothing beauty related.
