Target New Coupon Policy at MY STORE | Effective October 2016
Coupons can benefit your life very greatly in more than one way. Good coupons can help trim the cost of things you routinely purchase. Build up those savings over time, and you'll have the money for a cool vacation or a new TV. To get started on your savings, read on.
Stay up to date on the coupon policy and programs offered at the store you frequent. Find out if certain stores accept outdated coupons, double coupons, or do anything of the sort. If you aren't familiar with the policies, you won't be able to take advantage of all the savings you have gathered.
Just because you have a coupon does not mean that it will give you the best price for a product. You should compare the end price to the generic equivalent. Just because you have a coupon doesn't mean you are getting the best deal.
Put coupons to use when a store has a purchase one, get one for free deal. Not only do you get the extra item for free, but you will get a discount on the item that you purchase for the free item. Many times, you'll be paying less than 25% the original purchase price.
If you know of a store in your area that accepts competitor coupons, you should shop there so you do not have to go to multiple stores to use all your coupons. This is especially true if the store honors both competitor coupons and coupon doubling. Then it's a major win.
Even if you're not going to use them, have all your coupons with you. You may come across a sale that is in-store only, and you want to be able to use the coupon on the sales item at that moment.
If you're desperate to find coupons, don't fear "dumpster diving." This doesn't mean diving in a dumpster, just put on gloves and search out the newspaper inserts. You may be shocked to learn how many people simply toss their coupons out with the garbage.
Even if you're in possession of a certain coupon, you don't have to buy that item. People tend to overspend when they buy things solely because there is a coupon available. While it could be a good deal, if it's something you don't use, you may waste money.
Make sure you find the best coupon available. Oftentimes, companies offer many different coupons. For example, they may offer a 10 percent off coupon as well as a half off coupon. Do whatever makes the most sense to you, but keep both coupons in case you want to make two purchases.
Don't forget to "like" your favorite brands on Facebook. By liking the company, you can definitely save by keeping informed with the best information about coupons and upcoming sales. You don't want to miss out on the thank you coupons that bring great savings, so watch their accounts carefully.
Whenever you take couponing seriously, your savings can be two-fold. First, couponing can be used to save money on your groceries and reduce your bills. You can then use some of that saved money and apply it to more fun things. If you want to do well with coupons, then use the things you have learned here.
that is on a sale right now okay so if I could pull it up on my phone now I could put some for some reason it's saying that my wife I'd isn't working on my phone what's new but there is also a cartwheel offer and if you text the word kids gifts 2827 for 38 I'm going to insert the picture so you can do everything just watch it right here you ok so this
deal is only good for today so if you guys want to go out and get this toy for a super cheap I don't know how many times you can use the mobile coupon I don't know if it's a one-and-done type deal but if you have a want to buy a cheap cheap gift in your kids like this toy I just wanted to put that out there so that you don't have
to wait to the end of the video to see that part now moving along to my not why I'm not happy with a target right now so so on sunday or no this was saturday the car will offer reset for the dough this deal is no longer available I don't think I know that the coupons are expired anyways but dove was on a court will offer for twenty five percent off i believe
it was like two weeks ago a week and a half ago and then an expert well then it came back so on saturday i was like let me go out to target you know if you guys follow me on instagram you know i got up so early to go to target on saturday morning i also want to go get the tidy cats because the tidy cats was on a 40-percent cart
wall so i wanted to get the tidy cats for money and there was also a coupon when you buy one tiny catch you get a free cat tree a couple of weeks ago when i went to target I went through self check everything was totally fine I went back later that day to go do the dual fusion do this was a couple of weeks ago or maybe last weekend I don't remember
there was a lady that was buying a bunch of dub okay and when I had been earlier that day I went through self check everything was fine but I overheard the cashier telling the lady with the basket full of dub that um if you're using coupons for these items you cannot get a gift card oh no I'm sorry there's a gift card promotion on the Dove so you're not going to be able
to use coupons and I was like I didn't say anything um because it wasn't my business and I was already checking out but I was like well that's funny because um I went through self check earlier and I used coupons on the whatever deal I did that day and I got my gift card so I was like you know what I'm just going to stay out of that I did my transaction
I checked out about the dual fusion that's when it was like spent 25 on health care you get a five dollar gift card I went ahead and did that I got my five dollar gift card I used coupons by the van bada-boom now prior to that I had went to target this was a different day I was purchasing something and when I skin coupons and it was only gift card promotion um the
coupon deducted for less Lester the amount i'm just going to put it out i'm just going to give an example i was using a two dollar off coupon to dollar off one and because I'd already received a gift card when you scan three products you get a five dollar gift card and then at the end I scanned my coupons let's just say I had three coupons for two dollars off well the coupons
deducted because they had already given me a gift card and they only took off like a dollar and 51 cents for each coupon and I was like okay well target decided to change their policy if you are getting something that's on a gift card promotion it is going to deduct the amount of your coupon so that day I was like whatever I still got the items for free when I got the
gift card alright moving along to this week when I went on Saturday I went through a regular line first I got all of my items i got the tidy cats I got some soap and I can't remember what else but I my total was like eighty-seven dollars and I was like was that strange I ended up getting the wrong a tidy cats that's why the forty percent didn't come off I went back
to the store and fixed it later so I'd also bought the purina cat treats they were three dollars and ninety-nine cents so since I was buying to tidy cats I picked up two of the purina cat treats for 399 because they keep almost by one tidy cat you get a free purina cat tree so I get ready to give the capture all of my coupons and I had received back twenty-five dollars
in gift cards because the dog was like by three you get a five dollar gift card and there was also a checkout 51 rebate for was it checkout 51 I think it was checkout 51 for some caress as we as X so I ended up making like nine dollars back from checkout 51 I believe this for the Dove the crust in the X and when I got ready to give the cash
room I coupons she was like oh I can't take your coupons and I'm like why and she's like well you already got a gift card on these deals so we can't let you use coupons and I was like what and she was like yeah so I had like over ten or fifteen dollars in coupons and that was a lot of money however i did receive 25 dollars in gift cards i was
also getting back nine dollars from checkout 51 and there was some i bought a rebates for some other items that i picked up so I was like okay well I'm going to argue this with customer service because I didn't argue with the cashier she's just doing her job so it's like okay I paid eighty-seven dollars which is way out of my price range and so got twenty-five dollars back in gift card and
then I went to customer service and I said hey I just have a question I was told that I can't use my coupons and so their stories were like so out of whack and the lady was like oh well if you're getting it on a gift cards you can't use a coupon and I was like well when did this come into effect where does it say this on the target policy and
they in the lady said well it says that it's up to the manager some like okay well can we get the manager because I came into target to buy these things because i have coupons and so they brought the manager out it was a really nice guy and the manager was basically saying like um i was confused by what he was saying because he was like when you can't use a target coupon
he didn't say that i couldn't use a manufacture coupon they were saying that i couldn't use a target coupon so it was like okay well all of these are manufacturer coupons so it's like okay well if that's the case you can take the purina cat treats off of my ticket I won't get those because that's like eight bucks that you know I didn't need to spend I was only getting them because I
had a target coupon by one tidy cats get the purina cat treats for free there are four dollars so I was like okay well I'm gonna return these and I'm like well what about my manufacturer coupons and he's like okay yeah we take those ok well the cashier is under the impression that we can't use coupons so I had ten dollars and manufacturer coupons for the Dove and for whatever else i was getting
because i honestly don't remember they gave me back um they skinned all of my coupons all of my coupon skin and matched up they gave me back oh and i also had the two dollar off kitty litter so that was the other coupon it was two dollars off tiny cat so that was four bucks right there just in tidy cats so I was like okay so they gave me back my the
money for the coupons they gave it back to me in the form of a gift card so now I got thirty-five dollars worth of gift cards because I received 25 dollars worth of gift cards from the original transaction and then they gave me back 10 because they put all of my coupons on there instead of just giving me my money back at that point I didn't care i take the gift cards so
i got thirty-five dollars in gift cards so I'm like okay I get home and I realized that the tidy cats didn't come off cart whoa i realized that i bought the wrong one i was supposed to get the halloween one so I'm like okay whatever so I go back to the store i return to tidy cats because i was like well when you get the right one so i got my money
back for that which was Lester than the amount because they'd already given me a gift card and I felt like one of those people that go buy something and then they get a gift card and they just returning it but I really did purchase the wrong one so they gave me the money back for the gift card so at this point I decided I want to go get the right tidy cats
I go through self check I was like you know what I'm going to see I'm gonna get the Purina um cat treats and see if my coupon will scan so I had also a dollar fifty off of one purina cat treats coupon so I scanned my to tidy cats I scan the tube Purina um cat treats I scan both of those and then I scanned my 150 off coupons because I had
150 off one purina cat treats so I scan that coupon and then I scanned my target coupon for buy one tidy cats and then you get a free purina cat tree I scan those coupons they scan perfectly fine that 399 automatically came off so I'm like so this must be a target role that they came up with that you are not allowed to use a target coupon or a manufacture coupon when you are
getting a gift card so the self-check person that was there was not bothering me or anything so I was like okay well i'm so confused by this I don't want to deal with this every time I come to target so i got my gift card for buying two to tidy cats kitty litter cart will worked coupon skin i got my my free purina cat treats so I had my transaction was fine
i got my gift cards in i left now here's my deal nobody asked target to give us these gift card promotions and if target is deducting the amount of the coupon automatically which it did not do it this time when i went to self-checking got my money back it did not automatically adjust my coupons or anything but if target is automatically adjusting the coupons because they're giving a gift card promotion that's not fair
because they're getting the full value of the coupon back from the manufacture if i had a two dollar off 1 double coupon and they're deducting a dollar and 41 cents or a dollar and 51 cents they're getting a full 20 respect from the manufacture which means that us as the customers are losing out even though we're getting a five dollar gift card that's something that target is given us that has nothing to do
with the manufacture tart we didn't ask target to put these gift card promotions on the reason why target puts these gift promotions at gift card promotions on is because they want to keep us in the store if we give them at five dollar gift card they're going to come back and spend that five dollar gift card and they may decide that they ran out of bread and milk so they're going to spend
the five dollar gift card and then they're going to come buy some bread and some milk and we just got our customer to spend the five dollar gift card and they bought something else so that is why they do that they are wanting you to come back into their store and to pump more money that we always do that of course so my issue is that as coupon knows we go into target
to purchase things that are on a gift card promotion because we have coupons for these items we don't just want to purchase them because there's a gift card promotion we want to use the target coupon the manufacture coupon the cart will app we want all of that because target is like hey we have this for you and we want you to use it now you're taking that away from us now i will
say i don't know if this is at all stores i know that it is at my store now and I was so frustrated on Saturday I had thirty-five dollars worth of gift cards even though it worked out for me in the end I just had to go through so many changes ain't got time for that I went ahead I was going to a birthday party I spent the entire $35 on
a birthday present and I was like I gotta go I don't want to go to target on this coming weekend I did not go um for the new sales on Sunday because I just didn't want to deal with this so I didn't have any gift cards to roll anyway so I was like good I don't have a reason to go to target now I do think that target has really awesome deals when
they offer you a cart will offer and like the target coupon for the toys that I'll mention in the beginning of the video those I think that are great but I don't want to chance it every time I go to target and I got five dollars worth of coupons and I'm getting a gift card back and they're going to tell me that oh well we can't let you use these coupons like
I just don't want to be that person that's standing at the register frustrated embarrassed they won't take my coupons and you know I don't like have time for that and it's frustrating because my store said that they've had so much coupon fraud I understand that I get that but at the same time don't offer the gift card promotion if you don't want us to use coupons so that is pretty much my target rent
what happened to me I initially did a full video on this on Saturday and I wanted you guys to go out and do the deal but then I thought you know what I'm not even going to post it because what if their store is the same way as mine I don't want them getting frustrated so I didn't eat I ended up erasing a whole footage from the entire video of telling you
guys about the deal the plus thing for me is that on check out 50 one I got back five dollars I think for buying the dub and I got back four dollars for buying the caress body wash in the axe body wash so that became a really good deal for me I think it ended up being free after the checkout 51 rebate back to me so that was good and you know my
thing with this video's I wanted to tell you guys about my target its experience the customer service was pleasant they were very friendly the new wool was just my rant because I don't know if you guys are having that problem and i'm not going to chance it and saying oh I'm gonna go to self check out this week and see if I can get away with it I don't want to chance
that um it's just better for me I can go to CVS I can go to walmart I can price match at Walmart because my store still does it your target stores may not be doing this but mine is and I don't know how long it's going to last I can tell you one thing if they continue with that I know that my store is a big store with couponers they're going to
lose a lot of business because every single Sunday my store is packed with couponers so again that is my ramp they are deducting the amount of the coupons it did not happen to me this week but it did happen to me two weeks ago and then they are also saying that if there is a gift card promotion on an item you are not allowed to use coupons however I got my money back
I also went to self check I also ended up redoing the tidy cats deal was able to use a target coupon it's not the registers that it's kicking it back as far as saying that you can't use coupons it's the cashiers that are saying that so if your stores are telling you this new rule and new policy trust me you are not alone because it is my store too now I don't
know if the store by my job is doing that but that's the store what I had where I've had like a nasty encounter with the cashier and ain't nobody got time for that so yeah um yeah I don't know how much gift card shopping i'm going to be doing at target i am going to take advantage of the toy deal because every year we do donations for toys we also give to the
homeless but I do everything from my stockpile and I go to sams and we donate like trail mix and oranges and apples that's totally separate we also go with my friend they go to this community we give toys and our kids go with us and we hand out toys to the less fortunate I'm so I'm going to take advantage of the toy deal I am going to do that so if I
can do several times I will but I don't know if the coupon that I have as far as the digital coupon if I can use it more than once the mobile coupon I'm sorry that they email or text to me so yeah if I find out more i'll be sure to tell you um and i think that's it guys so i wanted to get this video up for you guys and hopefully
we'll have a better shopping experience at target in the future but adds up right now mine was Thank You target all right I love you to the moon and back thank you so much for watching and I will see you in my next video bye
