Hey, just wanted to add, Intuition Razors are on sale for $6.99 here, refills are $9 something for 3. There is a target coupon in this weeks paper for $4 off razor or refill, pair that w/ the coupon in the paper a week or two ago for $4 any schick razor and it's a money maker to possibly cheap refills. Makes the razor free w/ $1.01 overage, the 3pk refill about a buck. I am in Tampa Florida if that helps anyone.

I took advantage of all the freebies and free trial sized products after coupon matchups.

I put up pics and a list of all the clearance and free stuff I got.

Feel free to use and share. thanks

I used the target printable coupon for $5 off Hasbro game on Candyland ($6.69) and Disney Memory ($6.99) making purchasing both under $4. Great Christmas presents! The coupons list several Hasbro games, so I asked an associate if it was good on all Hasbro games and she said it was. Check the Milton Bradly games because I noticed some were Hasbro also.


4 John August 30, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Also, the Edy's Ice Cream is $2.50 with $5 gc wyb 5, use $1 off to make it .50 pint. YMMV - the coupons are 1 per transaction, 9 times out of 10 that's not an issue.


5 sati August 30, 2009 at 6:13 pm

Some folks can also get free with maybe overage on schick razors this week. they are on sale for 6.99 and some of use got $4 off manufacturer coupons a couple weeks ago and then this week we got TARGET coupons in our inserts!


6 sati August 30, 2009 at 6:14 pm

The hasbro coupon is NOT good on all hasbro games. the games it is good on is LISTED on it. just an FYI


7 Sara August 30, 2009 at 7:25 pm

Check out my money-making scenario for the Special K gift card deal! I can't wait to get to Target tomorrow to try it out!


8 laurie August 30, 2009 at 10:27 pm

I'm confused, if the Boost kid essentials is $3 MFR Q and $2 Target Q, wouldn't that make it $2.99 at the cheapest? I don't understand how you get it for 99 cents? anyone help here?


9 Amber August 30, 2009 at 10:34 pm

Last week I found the Strawberry Boost Kid Essentials at my store on clearance for $6.85. I used $5 off printables and paid $1.85 each. I didn't realize there was a Target coupon out.



10 Samantha August 30, 2009 at 11:33 pm

There were Schick Intuition gift sets with a razor handle including cartridge, 3 pack of cartridge refills, metal drinking bottle and Target shopping bag on clearance for 6.84 at a Memphis, TN Target. The $4 MQ scanned with no beeps.... haven't checked the paper yet, but hoping we got the Target Qs here and I will go back this week for another!


11 Modern Day Mom August 31, 2009 at 4:36 am

John - you can also use (5) $1/1 Edy's or Dreyer's Ice Cream coupons (RP 8/23) in addition to the (5) $1/1 Target Edy's Ice Cream printables. This makes the final cost $2.50, plus get a $5 Target gift card back. Moneymaker!

My daughter loves the Lil' Drums, so I'll probably buy (3) Edy's ice creams, (2) Lil' Drums, use (3) $1/1 Edy's manufacturer coupons, (3) Target printables, and (2) Lil' Drums printables, pay $4.50 using the Target gift card I got from buying the Special K bars today, and get another $5 Target gift card back. Still a $0.50 moneymaker!


12 Modern Day Mom August 31, 2009 at 4:49 am

John - the ice cream deal becomes better when you buy (5) cartons of Edy's ice cream and pair (5) $1/1 Edy's or Dreyer's Ice Cream coupon (RP 8/23) with (5) $1/1 Target Edy's printables. You'll pay only $2.50 after coupons, plus get your $5 Target gift card back. Moneymaker!

My daughter likes the Lil' Drums, so I'll probably buy (3) Edy's cartons and (2) Lil' Drums, use (3) $1/1 Edy's manufacturer coupons, (3) $1/1 Target Edy's printables, and use (2) $1/1 Lil' Drums printables. I'll pay $4.50 using the Target gift card that I got from buying Special K bars earlier today, and get another $5 Target gift card back. Still a $0.50 moneymaker!


13 katy August 31, 2009 at 8:54 am

I got a Huggies mailer last week that included a $2 off any jumbo pack coupon. So that makes it an even better deal! I'm not a Huggies user, but for that price, I'll grab a pack!


14 Mary August 31, 2009 at 10:03 am

They had they Guitar Hero World Tour bundles with 2 wireless guitars for the xbox 360 and ps3 just $22!! Great Christmas gifts!!!
I also got lots of j&j products and free Chef Michaels dog food ($3.00mq &$1.50 target printable) It was so exciting walking out with 4 bags of stuff with $7 oop!! THANKS!


15 Dizzy Mommy August 31, 2009 at 10:21 am

I love the free chef micheals I made sure to buy more of the $3 off coupons to use with the $1.50. I have a doberman who eats like nearly a bag of the 1 lb a day. But I just stop at any Targets I see along my way (and boy does Detroit have a ton of them).... sometimes I have a problem with a clerk getting confused but the manager generally fixes it.
My biggest question is.... Has anybody been able to find the 5 oz pouches of dog food that had that free coupon... none of the stores Ive been to have (Meijer, Kroger, Target, Walmart...)


16 Jaclyn August 31, 2009 at 10:27 am

My Target just put out the "free" pouches. Just an FYI the chicken flavor bags had a coupon for a free wet Chef Michaels can. Great to pair with the target b1g1.


17 Sara August 31, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Just an FYI...the deal I linked to for the Special K moneymaker DID work...exactly as I had planned for once!!! Free cereal/cereal bars, plus $$ in my pocket! Woo!


18 Kimberly August 31, 2009 at 3:24 pm

I know that at Walgreens, it is important to hand over coupons in the right order to prevent "beeps" (RRs, Manufacturer's Coupons, and Store Coupons) -- does anyone know if there are tips to prevent beeps at Target? Does it matter if you give them your store coupons first or last?


19 Dizzy Mommy August 31, 2009 at 4:17 pm

At Target I ve noticed at mine at least it doesnt matter... Ive tried both ways and boy are there alot of beeps because so many of there own coupons are more then the item. (Skittles, gerber feeding stuff...)


20 Barb August 31, 2009 at 5:16 pm

I was looking for the buddy soap coupon. Can someone tell me if the $1/1 Johnson's Toiletry can be used for the soap too? It doesn't show the soap pictured. And if this is the right coupon, how many do they let you get? Thanks.


21 katy August 31, 2009 at 6:15 pm

It has never mattered for me before (the order I hand over the coupons), but today the Target Huggies Q would not work, and I wonder if it was because she had already scanned the manny. She didn't understand what I was saying, so I just got both Qs back and will try again later this week.


22 wendy August 31, 2009 at 6:39 pm

I had the first really bad experience at Target today. I had at least $20 worth of coupons and when I looked at my receipt, the cashier had only managed to use a few bucks. She scanned several coupons that were free item and never put in the price of the item. Luckily, I had a very good customer service person and glady went through my coupons and receipt to refund the coupons as cash. So watch your receipts!!!!
Some of the great deals I found anyway:
Up and Up baby wipes (72 ct) .89 after coupon (target mailout)
Free general mills cereal cups with target coupon
Free johnson's buddies soap with target coupon
Mr. Clean spray 1.25 after homemade easy coupon
Free Glade soy based candle 2 oz with coupon
Free Lipton tea with mailed out coupon!
It was worth the hastle of getting my receipt straight!


23 Modern Day Mom August 31, 2009 at 6:49 pm

I apologize for the duplicate posts above! Looks like my internet connection was having issues last night.

Barb - yes, you can use the $1/1 Target Johnson's coupon on the Buddies soaps. As for how many they'll let you do... YMMV. I'll usually only grab a few even if I have 10 coupons and 10 soaps are on the shelf. In my experience, most cashiers don't have a problem when you buy just a few of the same free item, but they'll start to question or spout policies if it looks like you're buying the whole shelf. I also try to consider other consumers as well. I only had one coupon the last time I went, so I only bought one soap... I forgot to buy bananas, so I returned an hour later with a few more coupons and the entire shelf was cleared of soaps. It was disappointing, and I'm hoping to snag a few when they get their shipment in a few days.

I scored the Johnson & Johnson Bedtime Wash and Lotion that each included a bottle a little larger than travel side priced for $2.99 each and was able to use the $2.00 printable from the website AND 2 of the $1 off target ones. So it came out to about $2 for both. I also got the new bounce 2 month dryer bar priced at 3.94 for 1.54 when using the target 1.50 off and 1.00 manf coupon. same thing for the tide stain release liquid. I had about 25 coupons and saved $40 on a $92 trip! I was pleased.


25 katie b August 31, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Free bounce dryer bar. Regular price is $3.79. Target coupon $1.50. Vocalpoint mailer coupon $2.50. Free plus overage!!


26 AT September 1, 2009 at 10:48 am

So can you use a Target printable and stack it with a mfg coupon from Red Plum etc?



27 Katie September 1, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Does anyone know if the Johnson's buddies coupon is still available? I can't find it on Thanks!


28 ally September 1, 2009 at 9:29 pm

yes,AT you can stack a Target coupon and a Mfg coupon! yay!! i got huggies diapers for $4.50 a pack by using both coupons today!!! target rocks! pop tarts are on sale too. buy 2 get free gallon of milk.. use Target coupon and Mfg coupon to get them for next to nothing!!


29 Barb September 2, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Modern Day Mom- Thanks for the info. I will try for just a couple of bars, if I'm lucky enough to see any. :)

Has anyone had a problem with Target not accepting coupons because you have to buy the product in the picture of the coupon? I've had several problems with incompetent employees over this. I've heard the line "It isn't as big as the one in the picture" told to me several times. I tell them you can not go buy the picture, you have to go by the text of the coupon. I got turned away today, when they told me I couldn't stack a target coupon on top of a regular coupon because my product was not in the picture of the coupon. However, the text of the coupon dictated that it was identical the item I was buying.

Also they mentioned to me that it is "coupon fraud" to use the target razor coupon on top of the regular coupon. They told me "we can't get reimbursed for that."

It's frustrating when stores accept them automatically and others say "absolutely not."
