Target: Manufacturer Coupons

Target recently overhauled their coupon printing page.  They created software that limits your print to 2 per computer and they also added many coupons that are not Target coupons, but instead manufacturer coupons!!

(If you were wondering about the new print limits I have no doubt it was to be able to make these manufacturer coupons instead of store coupons.  Manufacturer’s don’t get to happy with unlimited coupons being released)

The one downside to their new system is that you are not able to tell what is a store coupon or a manufacturer coupon until you print it.  To help…

Here are the coupons that are manufacturer coupons.  This means they can be used anywhere!!

.75/2 Barilla Plus Multigrain Pasta (exp 1/16)
$1/3 Bush’s Best Baked Beans,16 oz. cans (exp 12/21)

Remember if your Publix accepts competitor coupons, these listed above are not competitor coupons, so they can’t be stacked with other coupons.  If your store does not accept Target coupons, they should accept these without any problems!

Thanks to Couponing to Disney, she printed the entire list of coupons to figure this out.

      I am having a problem downloading the Target coupons. It just will not download to my computer. Everytime I try to print the coupons it says I have to download the coupon activator and I have a dozen times AAArgh! Has anyone else had this problem?

      • Dena

        I am having the exact same problem. I have downloaded the coupon printer about 10 times and they still will not print for me either. I have no clue why.

      • Susan

        Close everything you have open and try again. I was having the same problem.

        • Annette

          I have have tried closing everything out, but it still isn’t working any other suggestions? Thanks

        • sara

          I finally got mine to print when I closed all the other windows.

    • Esther

      Try hotcouponworld.com for TARGET coupons, even multiple prints.

      • Jenny

        Sadly all the new Target coupons will no longer be available on coupon generators.

    • Rebecca

      I just printed 6 — 2 manufacturer – argo starch & bush’s beans, the other 4 i printed turned out to be target Qs – PF stuffing, Dole salad, GG Potatoes & PF crackers. Is it going to be like that for everyone, or will it be different for each person?

      • Suzanne

        I just printed out the Bush’s beans & Kleenex coupons and they both are Target coupons.

        • Jenny

          They do have target logos but check the bar code on the coupon. And look at the top of the coupon. I’ve not heard of some being Manufacturer for some and Store for others.

    • Amanda


      I don’t understand how you can say they are manufacturer and CAN be used other places. Walmart and other stores have told me NO they will not accept it as it is a “TARGET” coupon. They say the same with the Publix coupons that are manufacturers because it states Publix. And my Publix would accept all the target as competitor coupons because of the target symbol on the coupon.

      Also the new Target coupons have a “watermark” on the coupon so it is impossible to cut off the name of the store to see if another store will actually take it.

      I think this is pretty lame of Target.

      I will also say you can print more than 2 sets. There is a loop hole. It is the coupon printer that counts the number of coupons you may print. If you have more than one computer that accesses the internet and has a printer – you can download another coupon printer and print more sets of the target coupons! They are basing the 2 sets per household based on the fact each household only has one computer hooked to the internet.

      Hope this helps a few people.

        If the coupon says “Manufacturer’s Coupon” or “Retailer Coupon” at the top then you can use it anywhere. If you have problems w/ Walmart have the cashier read the small print. It will actually say who the retailer is and will also have an address of where the store needs to mail it to receive their reimbursement. I had this problem at Walmart last week w/ a Cookingforkraft.com coupon. The cashier was not going to accept it because it said Redeem at Publix in the upper left corner, but when I pointed out the small print she realized that it was in fact a manufacturer’s coupon.
        I just printed the pepsi, ritz, del monte & dole bagged salad & they all printed as Target Web Coupon which is printed at the top….this is a Target in-store coupon. I also printed the lean pockets and the dixie coupon…they printed as manufacturer’s coupon….it has the Target logo on the upper right corner but if you read the small print it specifies the retailer so it’s not specific to Target. I have seen in the past that the store’s logo will be on the coupon but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s specific to them………read the small print to be sure.

      • Debbie

        If it is a manufacturer with a Target logo then it will work fine at any self checkout!

    • Angel in NC

      Do you think you’ll still be able to print the Target coupons from the store kiosk?

      • Amanda

        Because it goes through a coupon generator, I don’t think you can print more at the store.

      Jenny, (or whoever else may know)I have a question- I wasn’t sure where to post it, and someone may have already brought it up. I noticed when printing out online coupons yesterday that none of them had “Do not double” on them; it seems like most of them had this before- are manufacturers no longer putting that on coupons, or was it just the ones I printed out by chance didn’t say that?

    • sarah d

      just an FYI to all: to get the second Q, you MUST hit your back button. Do not be fooled by the “back to coupon” button – it takes you back to a page that does not include the Q you just printed

    • Julie

      Hot Pocket coupon isnt on there any more :( Meaning, when i click on your “hotpocket Link” it takes me to a list of coupons w/pics and hotpockets arent on there :(
