Quick Target Shopping Trip: Spent $1.59, Saved $31.61

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 6, 2011 · 29 comments

We ran to Target last night because I really wanted to get some of the FREE after coupons Excedrin. Unfortunately my store was cleaned out, so I'll have to save my coupons for later this month. I did pick up a few nice deals while I was there though:

All together I spent $1.59 plus tax after coupons, a savings of $31.61! I used a $5 gift card that I earned previously, so my out of pocket costs were actually $0.

My store had lots of the Pop Art Pixies sets -- regular price on this set was $9.99, marked down to $2.48.The Pop Art Pixies site will let you print two coupons, so that's two toys for the gift closet for less than $1!

I am not seeing the Pop Art Pixie coupons:( Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!!

Scroll down just a bit on the Pop Art Pixies page, Kristina. You should see a little graphic that says save $2 on it.

So, Target is supposed to pay you the overage? Anytime I go there, they tell me I can't use coupons that are over the price of the product.

I wondered that myself, Lauren. It's been several weeks since I've used coupons at Target, and I noticed that the register prompted her to verify that I'd actually purchased the item after she scanned each coupon. When she hit yes, it took the entire face value of the coupon off. My guess is it could be a temporary fix for the issues we've been experiencing for quite some time now:

They are supposed to adjust the price of the coupon down to the cost of the product. NOT outright refuse the coupon. I had this problem in the past and called customer service WHILE I was in the store. They told me that the store needed to accept my coupon, then I handed the phone over to the manager so he could get it from the horse's mouth. SO SATISFYING!

my target would not allow me to use the $1.50/3 coupon as the product was not full size. I guess they consider the 4ct boxes to be trial/travel size or something. Just fyi! Those that could do it - good job!

Ugh, I bought the Pixie Art when it was $6.48-$2.00/1=$4.48 :(

Which Target in Columbus did you go that has lots of pixie art? it would be much appreciated. Thanks

I got them at the Target on Stringtown Road in Grove City.

I think the $3/1 Kashi GoLean coupons from Vocalpoint is dead. It is showing $1.00 now but say "There are no prints available for this campaign" when I clicked :(


12 Tara Kuczykowski March 6, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Sorry if I wasn't clear -- this was a coupon that came in the mail with the samples. However, I highly recommend signing up with Vocalpoint if you haven't already. They send out awesome samples and coupons!


13 elizabeth March 6, 2011 at 8:41 pm

i never get anything from vocalpoint...i go and do their surveys, but they are so dumb.


14 val-WI March 7, 2011 at 2:08 pm

i signed up but have yet to receive anything?


15 Jen March 6, 2011 at 4:33 pm

Here the full linky to the coupon for those curious mind:


16 gladys March 6, 2011 at 4:43 pm

I just tried to print the pop art pixie cpn and it said sorry we are either all out of coupons or you already printed the cpn ... I never printed the cpn so I'm assuming that they are all out


17 savingssally March 6, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Yeah, it said the same for me as well...all gone :(


18 Shellie March 6, 2011 at 6:04 pm

Just went to Target today and that same PopArt Pixie set is still $6.98. However, I was going to return it and just use the coupon (since there was 4543534534 boxes of them), but the coupon isnt available.


19 elizabeth March 6, 2011 at 8:41 pm

they took the coupon down :(


20 Donna March 7, 2011 at 5:54 am

My Target won't give me an overage either!! I can never get the travel sizes when they are .99.


21 JOANIE March 7, 2011 at 6:55 am

Mine were still on clearance but a higher price they had alot so im just gona keep my eye out for when they lower it again.thanks for the heads up about the coupon we have 4 so fingers crossed I love the plate kit.


22 Jen March 7, 2011 at 10:52 am

I just was able to print two of the coupons at 10:48 AM EST. No problems so maybe they added more coupons to the print limit?


23 Alessandra March 7, 2011 at 1:36 pm

My target at Williamsburg VA just put the Pixies on clearance for 2.48 and I was able to print 2 coupons! Thanks!!!


24 vicki March 7, 2011 at 2:36 pm

25 Diane March 7, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Did they have any Pop Art Pixie sets besides the stationery ones? Thanks!


26 Tara Kuczykowski March 7, 2011 at 6:08 pm

They had a couple of others sets that were priced slightly higher. Sorry but I don't recall what they were specifically.


27 Heather March 8, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I just printed the Pixies coupon. Many times the difference is that the site is programmed to print on Internet Explorer not set up to print using Firefox. I printed on Internet Explorer.


28 gretchen March 8, 2011 at 3:38 pm

coupon up today


29 Jonna D March 9, 2011 at 1:37 am

I'll have to get in there to check Pop Art Pixie's deal. We noticed at Christmas time that one of them has the name Tatum and I happen to have a Tatum of my own. These would make Easter gifts.
