Today when I was using my coupons, my cashier said that if a coupon beeps and says doesn't match. They will no longer accept. I am a little concerned. Interestingly enough, the only coupons that beeped were the Target coupons for Cheetos. She let those pass. I wonder what the real outcome will be!

If you receive the Target tear off coupons by mail, there is a Q for $4 off the Razors (exp 4/20) . Add that with the Shaving Gel ($1/1.89) you can do this:

Razor- $7.99 minus
Target Q- $4
P&G (4/5) $2 making the razor $1.99!

Shave Gel- $1.89-1= .89cents

$1.99 plus .89 cent = $2.88 and THEN receive your Target $5 gift card

$5-$2.88 means....

Target will pay you $2.12 to bring home the Razor and Gel!!!

Jennifer, I had to laugh at your comment. That is exactly what happens to me. The MFQs go through with no problem and the Target coupons beep or can't be read at all. Silly Target. I keep going though! For me there is no consistency. Each cashier seems to have their own policy. You have to just shrug your shoulders I guess. I am always relieved when I finally have my things and am heading OUT the door.

The 4/5 RP Dunkin Donuts coupon I received was for $1.50 off of TWO there another one I missed?


5 Tara Kuczykowski April 6, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Deidra, I just verified it, and indeed mine is for $1.50/1. I know that the Pittsburgh area received the same. You might try eBay if you want to purchase some coupons. I've had good luck with receiving them quickly from there.

What does that mean for the vitamin water:
i am new to this. thanks for your help


7 Tara Kuczykowski April 6, 2009 at 5:53 pm

Hi Kristy! It means the coupon was in the SmartSource insert in yesterday's newspaper. You can find a comprehensive list of the couponing terms used in my quick reference guide. It can easily be found in the future by clicking on the Coupons tab at the top of each page.

9 Emily April 6, 2009 at 7:46 pm

Stupid question... how many vitamin waters would i be able to get with the coupon? it's 1 drink per coupon right? i see why ppl buy numerous papers to get numerous coupons!!! lol


10 Tara Kuczykowski April 6, 2009 at 7:52 pm

Yep! You can get one per coupon, so you're only limited by the number of coupons that you have.


11 Debbie April 6, 2009 at 8:02 pm

For the ones that are new to coupons get ready!!!!! Becauce once you start you can't stop!!! ITS FUN AND YOU SAVE MONEY!!


12 April April 6, 2009 at 10:14 pm

Thanks for the deals! Does anyone know if you do the Gillette razor/shaving gel deal twice in the same transaction if you'll get two $5 gift cards? Or should I do separate transactions (like if I were shopping at Wags)? Thanks!

13 Tara Kuczykowski April 6, 2009 at 10:28 pm

April, I believe you can do two per transaction, but I usually do just one and then have them ring the second separately so I can use the GC I earn from the first one on it.


14 April April 6, 2009 at 10:42 pm

Thanks Tara! I didn't even think about that.

Debbie is right - once you start couponing you can't stop!


16 Heather April 7, 2009 at 3:53 pm

I'll be picking up some free vitamin water this week. I agree with Debbie and Megan.. I even have the ladies at work that don't cut coupons bringing me the coupons from their paper every Monday..

18 Janice April 7, 2009 at 11:04 pm

This week at w/Greens the vitamin water is one dollar and the coupon in the monthly book has an additional one dollar off of two, bringing it to better'n free with your coupon.


19 Deanna April 8, 2009 at 4:08 pm

How do you get the Target tear off coupons?


20 Laurie April 9, 2009 at 2:38 am

I'd like to know that, too, Deanna! No $4 Q for me! :(
And my Target ad says $5 gift card "when you buy...(razor)..OR CARTRIDGE and one other item. Anyone know how much the cartridge is? Maybe cheaper than the razor even after Q?


21 Deidra April 9, 2009 at 10:21 am

Ladies, I received the booklet after moving to a new house... I don't recall ever signing up for it, but I'm wondering if it was a carry-over from the previous owner....the booklets say "current resident"...? I receive 2 booklets every month or so- a "household" coupon booklet, and one devoted strictly to baby items.... I'll have to do some research on this, though I'll bet you could email Target or go to their customer service desk and ask....Side note- the razor cartridges are very expensive. Anywhere from $15ish to $20ish depending on amount. I keep thinking I will just buy a refill, but when the Qs and prices allow you to get a whole new razor for free, it's just better all around.


22 Laurie April 9, 2009 at 10:52 am

WOW! So much for my idea; those are some crazy expensive cartridges! Thanks so much for the help Deidra!


23 Tara Kuczykowski April 9, 2009 at 10:53 am

It's a bit of a mystery as to how you get on their list. I know I get the household coupons and the baby coupons. I believe the baby coupons are a result of registering online, but I don't know if the household coupons are tied to that or not. I would definitely try registering on the Target site and see if you start receiving anything from it.


24 JEANNIE April 9, 2009 at 1:50 pm

This is for the ladies wondering about the Target tear off coupons by mail... I just called the Target on my area, and ask about how to get them. The manager ask me if I have a Red card, meaning a Target visa card. He knew that people who has the visa card also get the coupons by mail.


25 J. Wu April 16, 2009 at 2:52 am

Well! I went to two Target with my coupons. The first Target check out person was acusing me that those coupons were copies. I told her that they all printed out from laser printer. She told me that the Target coupons are not from Target (I print them out from this website.). She told me that others Johson's coupons for the Buddies soap are not leagle. She asked me that where I got my coupon in a yelling voice. She treated me like a criminal. She also took my All deterget manufacture coupon that I printed out from this side.
I went to another Target. The cashier told me that the two and three dollors coupons are not the coupons that Target will accept. I left with empty handed.


26 Tara Kuczykowski April 16, 2009 at 9:13 am

I'm sorry you had a poor experience, J. Wu. I would recommend that you contact Target corporate and let them know about your experience as it is not in line with Target's corporate coupon policy.
