target household coupon deal idea

If you haven’t taken advantage of the awesome Target $20 off any $50 purchase in household cleaners coupon, then read this…  This is an awesome deal and well worth heading into Target for!  I went yesterday afternoon and got 14 items and paid $4.01 for everything!! I also threw in some carrots and bananas that were free after the $1 off produce mobile coupons (when you text SPRING to 827-438).

While there are hundreds of products participating in the coupon, here’s an idea of what I grabbed.

    • Ashley

      Do all target stored let you use both the $20 off $50 plus the manufacturers coupons or does it vary by store location?

      • soundring

        All stores. Their coupon policy is on their website and it says you can use a manufacturer coupon and a Target coupon on each item.

      • Kara

        That’s their policy (stacking manufacturers and Target coupons), but the last time they had one of these newspaper coupons from Target I tried to use a bunch of manufacturer coupons and the big Target coupon and they wouldn’t let me because they said I didn’t have the minimum purchase amount.
        So make sure that they ring up the big Target $20 off $50 coupon BEFORE all your other coupons.

    • Dani

      My question is- if I use the PG swiffer BOGO can I still use a 2$ off swiffer wet jet?

      • soundring

        No, when you use a BOGO coupon, the coupon applies to both items.

    • Meagan

      How can you use the carrots and bananas in the 20 off 50? are they considered cleaning products? lol

      • wendyc33

        I am wondering this also.

      • Aforet

        It’s not included in the sale/coupon. At the top she states “I also threw in some carrots and bananas that were free after the $1 off produce mobile coupons (when you text SPRING to 827-438).” I believe she’s just giving you knowledge of additional savings if you’re going to Target to get the household deal.

        • wendyc33

          but with the carrots and bananas the total came too 50.43. it would not have been 50.00 worth of household products without that.

          • MariaClipsCoupons

            I was confused and did the math. She did not include the carrots and bananas in the subtotal.

          • mandys

            All of the cleaning & household products added together are $50.43

        • meagan

          gee thanks! I feel dumb now! i should have read the whole paragraph! thanks guys

      • Aforet

        If you add up her total without the carrots and bananas, it equals the subtotal she shows, which is $50.43. Showing it included like she did is confusing though.

    • Meagan

      sorry household products**

    • wendyc33

      if i did not get a paper this week. How do i get this coupon?

      • wendyc33

        sorry should of read further down. lol.

    • CathyC

      But can you use the additional Target coupons when you are using the 20/50 Target coupon?

      • Tie Dye Jen

        I wondered this too, but if she used it, it must have gone through

      • sarah

        My target only lets me use on mobile coupon so I don’t know how this deal worked…

      • They all went through just fine. The only coupon that caused issues was the B1G1 because the value was so high ($6.54 off) a manager had to come over and approve it.

    • soundring

      I don’t think you can use the $1 Downy Unstopables coupon on the 9.7 oz. It excludes trial size and the image on Target.com for that size says “try me size” on the bottle.

    • Erin

      this is amazing… nice work!!

    • Karen

      I was told that I could not use Target coupons for any item because they are all claimed under the $20/$50 coupon. :-( I really wish stores would have consistent policies!!!

    • Anna Crews

      Does target double coupons?

      • Kristy

        No they don’t. I only know of grocery stores doubling in my area. Publix and Bi-lo are the ones I use.

    • Kaitlyn

      Does anyone have a deal idea including the laundry detergent and charmin?

      • cmemily

        I bought two of the large Tides (72 loads each) and one of the mega packs of Charmin. I used 2 $1 off Tide coupons and then a $2/2 Target Tide coupon from the paper a few weeks ago. I also had $1 off charmin mega packs (I think it came in a pack of batteries). So my total for all three was about $27, or $9 each. I was happy with that!!

    • Mel

      I have to call in to corporate because they absolutely refused to use my cartwheel and would not override the BOGO. They said I used too many mobile coupons and also refused to use my $1 off fresh pork on the fresh pork item. It was quite a bad experience and they owe me over $10:(

    • Ashley

      I did a similar deal today only I used 2 BOGO on the Swiffers, but I picked up the Swiffer Sweeper Refills which were only $4.49 each because they did not have the ones for $6.54 at my store. They would not let me use any Target printed coupons, but would let me use the $20 off $50 and the Mobile Coupons from Target.

      Only had to pay $8.52! Thanks so much Jenny!

    • Kristy

      I was able to get a similar deal as shown above. The cashier scanned my $20 off first making sure I had $50 and then all my coupons. The $2 off 3 pledge scrubbing bubbles Target printable worked for me. So I was happy about that. I didn’t realize until I left that my Swifter coupon rang up as a $7 credit. I bought the duster kit for $4.26 and they had Swifter wet cloth refills for $4.26 (cost $1.52 in the end for both). I had a subtotal of $8.60 and have $5.25 checkout51. So I got about $50 worth of cleaning and household for $3.35. What a great deal!

      I also picked up bananas and a green pepper for free. Plus, the 2 free bottles of Target brand Ibuprofen that they were out of last week. The fruit $1 off didn’t work at first because mine totaled $.98. So they had to adjust the coupon.

      Thanks so much Jenny.

    • Paullet Weaver Maleckar

      If the store is advertising a promo buy 2 get 1 free, do all 3 go towards the $50, or just the two?

      Also, my store has two promos on the same item. a buy two get a downy unstoppable free, AND buy 2 get 3rd free… If i buy two does it qualify for both, or do I need to pick one or the other?

      • Meka

        All three go towards the $50

      • Paullet Weaver Maleckar

        Will the mobile coupon take off a dollar per unstoppable, or just one. Like if I bought 3 would it take off $3 or just $1, can we scan my phone and my husbands for the same coupons that we buy multiple of that item?

    • gccsmom

      I’m not finding the $1 Downy Unstoppable coupon ???

      • DeeDee

        I found it under zip code 20110. Hope it is still there for ya!

        • gccsmom

          Found it…THANKS!

    • tori729

      Anyone have a different scenario without all the Swiffer and Pledge products? I don’t use those.

    • Bryn

      Thanks for working out the Deal Idea… I changed it up a little bit, but I got 15 items for $12 and they were all things that I needed. Beach and Hodges in Jacksonville store would only take the 1 – $20 target coupon and not any others target coupons-

    • Tina

      Quick question ? I do not really use any of these household cleaners and was wondering if its worth to use coupon to buy toilet paper or tissue paper and has it worked into a good deal?

    • Jessica

      What is Checkout 51??

    • Jessica

      What is Checkout 51??

    • tryett

      Checkout 51 is a website or app (this one you don’t have to h

      ave a smartphone for) that is similar to ibotta and savingstar except you can shop anywhere for the product. You upload the receipt and they credit your account, when it hits 20 they send you a check.

    • Paullet Weaver Maleckar

      What method do you use to make sure that all the coupons you hand over actually get applied? I’ve tried watching, but when I get home I realize that there were coupons that were not applied. :(

      • Lisa D

        You have to be vigilant, when I go to the register I’m not talking to anyone in line or on the phone. I give my coupons my total undivided attention. Keep your coupons organized when you hand them over, look at the screen and make sure it being taken off. You should already know an approximate $ amount of what you should be left with after using coupons so if you notice your paying $10 instead of $3 then address it then.

    • Paullet Weaver Maleckar

      Will the Downy dryer sheets work towards the $50?

    • lisa

      Good luck to all who do this deal as it seems like it is hit or miss with what the cashier/store will allow at any given time. I did it yesterday and was told that I couldn’t use the target printable coupons along with the $20 target coupon. The manager was awesome and helped me to make the deal work. She allowed me to use all of my coupons-there was a huge stack! I ended up buying $56 worth of products for $11

    • Lisa Malanowski

      Went out today after work and got a great deal! Including the swiffer wet jet I’ve been wanting to try that was $18.99, my total with ten other products $22.31. Don’t forget to use the Shopmium app. It currently is offering 25% off Glade Customizable starter kit and $1 off Glade Plugin twin pack refills!

    • Beverly

      My text to spring coupons would not work along with the Target 20 odd 50. My prices were higher on some products and di not even carry some. I di end up after a previous 5.00 gift cad and one checkout 51 rebate paying 12.29 for 10 items. I guess was not bad, but disappointed about the mobile coupons and the items not stocked at the store. Not complaining. Just sharing.!!

      • Kristy

        I’m not sure why but I always have Target mobile coupons that don’t work. I check the description and it matches the items too. I had some that worked on this deal and one that didn’t. I think maybe it’s something in their system that isn’t working right. I had a fruit one too that didn’t but talked to the manager and they fixed it. I think it depends on the cashier/manager. I have had some in the past that didn’t work and they wouldn’t help so I didn’t buy the items.

        Prices can vary from store to store though and some items might be out of stock too. Definitely a good deal no matter what.

    • Cayce

      My Target (TN) would not allow me to use the 20 off with any other coupons!

    • Mars
