You may have to be a subscriber to do this deal. I tried one similar to this, some months ago, and never got the item. When I called to find out about it, no one knew what I was talking about, and I couldn't get very far since I didn't have a subscriber number. Just a caution.

Hmm, I wouldn't think that would matter. It's not a special insert, so it should be in the newsstand issues, as well, which to me means it's fair game for anyone.

I wonder if this 20.00 before or after coupons...can't find my issue-may have already recycled :( but I may have to call cs and verify whether before or after coupons to see if I have time to do this.

I think they may have inserted different promotion cards. My card was $1.00 of any up & up purchase of $3.00 or more! This is their new line of value basics. Any others out there?

Star, that's a coupon for the new Up & Up Target brand, and that's different from this promotion. It was in a totally different section towards the back of the mag.

Tamara, generally the amounts are before coupons, but if you find out different, please let us know!

It's funny the way it's worded - you *could* receive a gift card. Almost like it's a drawing or something and a few lucky people will get one. Does anyone know for sure?

My advice is to do any of these magazine promotions ASAP. The "while supplies last" disclaimer is serious business...my experience with this type of offer has been very disappointing. I just got a "consolation" tote bag from a promotion I did in MARCH, instead of a cookbook they were offering. Beware~~

Dee - I know the tote bag that you're referring to! I like my bag but, I would've preferred the Cookbook!

I just had the same problem with a $10 Rite Aid GC offer in Fitness mag. if you bought certain items you got could get a $10 GC. However I called ahead of time and the girl told me it was limited to the first 1100 people.... which I guess happened really fast. Kinda stunk since I had already bought my daughter the Lash Blast Mascara.

I am having trouble finding the Magnetic Dry-Erase Reminder boards in my target. Has anyone seen it in their local target?
