I tried to get free whitestrips at Target last night and they wouldn't take my coupon because it would make the total fall below zero....guess I needed to buy something else??? I'm thinking of trying it again this evening and finding something else to purchase along with it. See if it works that way.

They wouldn't take my coupon either. Said the coupon was not meant for trial size. I tried to argue the point, but to no avail. Also, said one coupon per purchase. I tried to say that means you can't use more than one coupon per item, deal. Also, I didn't get the $5 gift card either. May return the Scrubbing Bubbles.

I didn't try to do the whitestrips deal because my $5 coupon said good on 14 count package of whitestrips.

Found some good new cheapskate advice that might be good for readers of this blog:


5 Julia @ The Frugal Find July 29, 2009 at 3:00 pm

My coupon also says good on a 14 count package, even though it doesn't specifically say "not valid on trial sizes" it does state the quantity it is good for.


6 Tara Kuczykowski July 29, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Are you looking at the coupon from the 6/7 insert? I'm looking at both the 6/7 insert and the 7/5 insert right now. The one from 6/7 does not have any limitations on size; however, the 7/5 coupon does have the 14-ct. limitation.


7 Julia @ The Frugal Find July 29, 2009 at 3:07 pm

Oh awesome Tara! I had only seen the 7/5 coupons...perfect, thanks!


8 Denise July 29, 2009 at 4:03 pm

Is the Scrubbing Bubbles shower cleaner a regional coupon? If so does anyone have any that they would like to sell or trade?


9 angeline saby July 29, 2009 at 4:39 pm

fyi the scrubbing bubbles deal you need the coupon that came out last sunday and it was regional. the target q was in the redplum get 5 gc wen you buy the scrubbig bubbles shower cleaner. just though you should know since im in orlando i didnt get it but got other target q some other people didnt get. but just got some on ebay.


10 Diana July 29, 2009 at 5:08 pm

I have a $10 off Crest Advanced Seal whitestrips (regular size box)... anyone know where I can get these for free or almost free? I think they're about $35 at most retailers, if I remember correctly. It's a long shot, but worth a try!


11 Crissy July 29, 2009 at 5:47 pm

I saw a Fusion razor on an endcap at Target for $5, but you could save $4 if you bought a 2 pack of shaving gel or some other stuff. Did anyone else see this and have any ideas of how to maximize this for the best deal?


12 Ari July 29, 2009 at 7:36 pm

I was able to use a $10 and a $5 coupon to buy 3 boxes. I'm having trouble using the $7 coupon inside the trial size boxes. Is anyone else having this issue?


13 Heather July 29, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Hi - not sure if anyone can assist, but I do have the coupon for target, but, am not able to print out the bubbles coupon (my only printer is at work), and I can't DL the program to get the coupon.
Is there anyway someone can send it to me? It that possible?


14 Amanda July 29, 2009 at 10:23 pm

I don't think it's going to work out here. I went to the Target over by Easton and had my daughter in one line with a box of Whitestrips, a pack of filler paper for 50c ents, and the coupon. And then my son and I with the exact same things ino ur line. Neither of the cashiers would take it. One of them said she couldn't take it because the coupon was for more than the item was worth and the other said she couldn't take it because it wasn't for trail size, I pointed out that the coupon didn't exclude trial size but she said she still couldn't take it. :( That's 3 strikes now. I'm done trying. I mean, is it REALLY that important to me? LOL!


15 Hillary July 29, 2009 at 10:37 pm

I went to Target tonight and they said that they did not have a deal with the Scrubbing Bubbles to get a $5 gift card. I did use my $7 off coupon so it was a good deal...but not $1.00. =(


16 Cindy July 29, 2009 at 10:54 pm

I live in Lafayette, IN and I went to Target tonight. They did not have the $5 GC with the purchace of the shower cleaner. So it must be regional. Oh well, I will be patient and wait for another good deal to come along. I did get 3 boxes of PopTarts using 3 .$.75 Target coupons and 3 $.55 printables and only paid $.66. I was happy with that.


17 Sky July 29, 2009 at 11:48 pm

I'm trying to print the $7 coupon for the scrubbing bubbles, but it keeps telling the website is having "technical difficulties" and to try back later, but I've been getting this error all day...anyone else having problems?


18 mari July 30, 2009 at 12:08 am

Has anyone tried to buy scrubbing bubbles in california?


19 mari July 30, 2009 at 12:15 am

I forgot to mention I went to target this afternoon and I saw in the endcap the softsoap ensebels soap for3.00 if u still have the coupon for 2.00 off its only $1.00


20 amy July 30, 2009 at 7:59 am

I emailed crest and they sent me a $10.00 off any 1 advanced seal, im going to try to use it today and see what happens, i will let you know.


21 Jan July 30, 2009 at 9:08 am

My Target does accept coupons for more than the value of the item, the cashier has to manually override and go into some window that allows her to enter the value of the coupon. So if my item is only $.99 and my coupon is for $1.00 off, they enter it in as $.99 for me. What I don't get is this --doesn't Target get the full $1.00 back for the coupon when they turn it in?


22 Lisa July 30, 2009 at 12:28 pm

I actually bought the scrubbing bubbles yesterday without knowing about the $5 GC (used the coupon though). I'm in So. Cal and they didn't have the GC deal here :(


23 Allison July 30, 2009 at 3:14 pm

I went to target to get the whitestrips and the scrubbing bubbles. They said that there is no $5 off gift card and the whitestrips deal wouldn't work either because the box was for $4.97 and the coupon was for $5. They said that no Target would accept a coupon for more than the amount of the item. But I did use a $1/1 Johnson and Johnson first aid coupon for the travel size first aid boxes which were priced at .99 each. I don't know why that would work and the whitestrips would not work. Anyway the poptart deal was great and I ended up getting everything for free because when I went over to return the scrubbing bubbles they put the full amount back on my card even though I had used a bogo coupon. Didn't realize till later but glad they did because they were very rude about the amount of coupons that I had with my order. even so it turned out to be a good trip.


24 Krissy July 30, 2009 at 5:33 pm

You have to use the Target coupon from this past Sundays paper to get the $5 gift card for the Scrubbing Bubbles. It wont happen automatically at the register like the razor deal last week. Maybe not every region got the coupon, I know Philly area got them.


25 Ashley B. July 30, 2009 at 6:01 pm

All - the $5 GC deal for the scrubbing bubbles is in the newspaper, not an automatic store deal. I actually got 2 of these coupons because on Sunday I was in Los Angeles and got a paper there (had the $5 GC coupon) and got one from my local Houston paper. I went to my Houston Target to do the scrubbing bubbles deal, but its not on sale for $12.99 only the Windex Outdoor cleaner is (which there is a $5 GC coupon in paper as well) but no $7 off printable coupon! bummer...also looked in the Target ad I had from L.A.'s paper and only the Windex outdoor cleaner was on sale. I got the trial size whitestrips and had no problems with the coupons. The coupons I did have problems with were the Target 0.55 off but they finally took it, they had a hard time scanning. I would advise all to take a copy of target's coupon policy with you to the store, several bloggers have posted this on their site. I always tell them they need to adjust the price down and they do it for me. Good luck! Hopefully the scrubbing bubbles will go on sale here soon!


26 Tara Kuczykowski July 30, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Sorry, I didn't realize the Scrubbing Bubbles GC required a coupon. That's the first time I've ever heard of them doing that!

Allison, I think it's pretty funny that they told you no Target would accept that coupon, because mine accepted it just fine earlier today and I used quite a number of coupons on that order.


27 Cheryl July 31, 2009 at 2:29 am

My target in rhode island didn't have the item. So I can't say it works. Warwick target stinks!


28 Allison July 31, 2009 at 9:14 am

I didn't realize that you had to have a coupon to get the $5 gift card. I must not have gotten it. I get the charlottesville, va paper and the D.C. paper but it was not in either.


29 esther July 31, 2009 at 1:39 pm

same here, went to target and use the $7 coupon on the $4.99 trail size crest, the cashier asked the manager on the floor if she could take the coupon for the trial size. She asked the price on the trail size and the cashier said the coupon exceeds the amount, and the manager said no. So I asked the cashier wouldn't they adjust the price of the coupon to match the item, she said no. They don't take any coupons that's above the item price. But i don't understand why they would adjust a $1 to become $0.99 (as mentioned above in someone else's comment), if that $1 is more than $0.99. Did anyone contact target to see what's the store policy? I might email them and see what they say. Will post once receive reply.


30 Crissy July 31, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Ester, please let us know because I am dying to know now.


31 melisa steffen July 31, 2009 at 9:19 pm

i got the whitestrips with no problem. i definitely pick the cashier that i think will not give me any problems the younger the better and usually male. very stereotypical but it usually works. i worked as a cashier at walmart in college and truthfully never really paid attention to the coupons as long as they were not expired and sometimes i didn't even look at that!


32 Anna-Marie August 1, 2009 at 9:59 am

I am visiting family in Oregon (so I wanted to show off to my Mom who taught me about coupons at a young age) and went to Target yesterday (Hillsboro) with my coupons and policy in tow. I got the Crest Whitestrips ($4.99) with no problem, 1 box of poptarts and the Baked Lays (1 Target q+ 1 manu q), trial size Tide and All small mighty w/ coupons with no problems... the cashier was aware of their policy. They were out of the Scrubbing Bubbles... BUT good thing because I did not have the coupon for the $5 gc (but after reading the comments I found where to look). I am going to try another Target today - we have several in the area. Also, my coupon insert has the Windex Outdoor All-In-One $5 gf, but not going to be using it. Reading the 'comments' section has proved to be very useful many times.


33 esther August 1, 2009 at 2:10 pm

good news, target customer rep replied saying they DO adjust manufacturer coupon down to the item price if it exceeds the $...the rep says if there's problem, have target call them...(note, this is not the first time that my local target refuses to do this, plus they said when they called them, they were told not to it's hard to argue)


34 Karen S August 1, 2009 at 10:34 pm

Target! What a deal! I went yesterday and they were out of scrubbing bubbles. Went back today....In stock. So I had my $7 off, it was on sale for $12.99 so out of pocket was $6. Got the $5 GC and then I bought the Windex kit for $12.99, had a $2.50 off coupon, used the $5 Gc and paid $5.49!! AND walked out with another $5 GC. not to bad! So Scrub.bubbles and clean windows,
total really....$6.50!!! I live in Chesapeake, VA


35 Anna-Marie August 2, 2009 at 1:57 am

Just got home from Target. Got 2 Kashi cereal cups w/coupons. Needed a small bottle of laundry soap ($3.99). Used the $7 (from the last box) off the Trial Size Crest Strips for $4.99. The coupon went thru no problem and it paid for 1/2 the price of the laundry soap! I paid $1.98 total (and NO sales tax in Oregon). Still out of the Scrubbing Bubbles...


36 suzanne August 5, 2009 at 10:42 am

the target in my area is not doing the 5 dollar gift card with the scrubbing bubbles....=(


37 Amy August 26, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I need some advice about Target--I went today and scored some awesome deals. The problem is they refused to take any coupon that was for more than the item costs and they refused to adjust the coupon down. I tried this with sample items, as well as the crest white strips (which I've attempted to buy 2 times and they'll never adjust the coupon down). I even spoke with the manager and showed him the print out of Target's coupon policy and he refused, said that it would be like " getting the item for free"??? In a situation like this do you contact corp?? If yes, what is the number? Thanks in advance for any help!!!


38 Tara Kuczykowski August 26, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Amy, I'd recommend calling customer service from one of the red phones while you're still at the store. I know it's a little bit of a hassle, but they will inform the manager of the correct policy, and hopefully it will prevent future issues for both you and other customers.


39 Amy August 26, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Thanks for the quick reply, Tara! Where are the red phones located?? (I'm sure I've seen them a million times, but can't I've heard of some people calling corp. while they are standing in line when they don't follow policy, have you ever done this ??


40 Tara Kuczykowski August 26, 2009 at 2:59 pm

They should be located up by the customer service desk. I haven't done it personally because I've never had a problem that wasn't resolved in the store, but I've had many readers write to me about doing it.


41 esther August 27, 2009 at 11:44 am

target is always bad with knowing their own coupon policy. When you contact customer rep via phone/email, they tell you one thing, they even email you their policy. but when you get to the store, even managers deny their own policy. It happened to me every single time that they do not adjust coupons down to the sale price, even when I bring the email with me.
One time even the manager talked on the phone with the rep, and she came back telling me the rep told her they don't adjust coupons.
I was tired of arguing and so i left.
