Since recently including many of the Target Home Mailers in the weekly Target deals, I've been getting e-mails and questions about where to get these coveted mailers. Well, I have some bad news. Target Corporate sends the home mailers to randomly selected zip codes within a certain mile radius of of their stores. That means their is no sure way to make the list. However, I do know that, like with many things, if you don't use them, you'll lose them.
While many theories fly around often, from making a purchase in the photo center or creating a gift registry to getting a Target Red Card, none of them are a 100% sure way to get on the exclusive list. However, I did a little digging and a source of mine at Target Corporate recently hinted that almost everyone, if not everyone, who makes a purchase online gets added to the mailing list.
While I don't get the mailers, my local Target does sometimes have older home mailers or coupon booklets available in-store. Sometimes I find them at the pharmacy, while other times they'll be near the bakery, deli, cash register, or customer service, so keep your eyes open while shopping. Until then, you'll just have to cross your fingers that you make the list.
If you've made a purchase online, do you get the coveted home mailers? We'd love to know, since many of us long to be on the list too!
