Tara - do you know where they stock these in your store? I couldn't find them today, but I didn't have a lot of time to look either. All I could find was the $3.99 size.


2 Tara Kuczykowski February 23, 2010 at 9:37 pm

I haven't found them personally, but if you don't find them with the regular body washes (I think that's where I found them last time), check the end caps because they often put the special sizes there.


3 Susie Coupon February 23, 2010 at 9:45 pm

Well please let us know when you see them "personally", I went flying into Target today to get a few.........3.99.


4 E February 23, 2010 at 9:46 pm

Does Walmart carry this size?


5 Tara Kuczykowski February 23, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Susie, it sounds like you found the larger size -- these are the 8.4-oz. size. When I said I haven't found them personally, it's because I haven't been shopping at Target in a couple of weeks, not that I couldn't find them. Numerous people have emailed me that they found them, so I'm not sending people on a wild goose chase.


6 Renee Siebert February 23, 2010 at 9:55 pm

They are almost in front by end cap like where Target gift cards are body wash dept.


7 christen February 23, 2010 at 9:57 pm

has anybody in the charlotte, nc or surrounding area found this size? i really dislike my local target so i'm trying to avoid them if i can!


8 Kelly February 23, 2010 at 9:58 pm

This is awesome! I actually have 2 of these coupons AND there's a $2 off 1 from the P & G from 2/14! AND I actually have 2 more of the $2 off 1 from a package insert from something else I bought. If I can find them, that will be 5 bottles that I can score free!

Thanks so much!

[Tara - have the people that emailed you said that there were anywhere special (other than the typical soap isle) in the store?]


9 danni February 23, 2010 at 10:06 pm

At my store it was on the end cap beside the Dove Bar Soap ...on the side ! Its not with the normal body wash $3.99.....!


10 Tara Kuczykowski February 23, 2010 at 10:08 pm

Thanks for sharing where you all have found them!

Kelly, the $2/1 coupon won't work because it's only valid on the 12-0z. size.


11 Kelly February 23, 2010 at 10:13 pm

Whoops .. Thanks for pointing that out! The $2/1 from the paper is 12 oz, however the $2/1 from the package insert are for any size [except trial]. I believe this came from the Mach 3 disposable razor packaging.


12 Tamara Austin February 23, 2010 at 10:32 pm

I found them on the end caps near the soap and bodywash. Thank you so much!


13 Lisa h February 23, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Can't you print off two of each of the coupons on Target. I printed off one $1 off Kraft chesse, and have went through the coupons 3 times and can't find it to print a second time. Am I doing something wrong? Please help.


14 cheryl February 23, 2010 at 10:53 pm

I found two and also picked up 2 of the hair product on clearence for $2.25. So I paid .50 for all 4 loving it.


15 Rico February 23, 2010 at 11:03 pm

I also was unable to find the smaller size at my target (KS). oh well i still was able to take advantage of some other great deals.


16 Shelley February 23, 2010 at 11:14 pm

I'm curious....does the register at Target beep when you use this coupon because the value of the coupon ($4) is higher than the cost of 2 bottles of the wash ($3.98)? Just wondering if the cashier will need to do any kind of override for it since sometimes that can be a pain.


17 Kelly February 23, 2010 at 11:25 pm

it shouldn't beep if it matches the coupon's wording, but that definitely doesn't mean it won't. hopefully you'll get a cashier that doesn't mind doing their job!

i'm going on thursday in hopes that i can find these size bottles.


18 Me February 23, 2010 at 11:45 pm

Kelly I find that comment offensive being that i am a cashier and my company doesnt allow me to take manf. coupons that exceed the item value, but that doesnt mean im not doing my job. I use coupons all the time but even i know that using a coupon for 4 dollars off an item that is only 3.99 isnt alway going to work, but thats not the cashiers fault. Its policy.


19 Bonnie February 24, 2010 at 12:18 am

I think Kelly is referring to the part of your job that requires you (via Target's coupon policy) to adjust the coupon down to the value of the product. So if you do this don't take offense. Target gives a lot of us couponers trouble about following there own policy.

Susie Q,
Maybe you should try finding your own deals from now on. I am grateful to Tara for posting as much info as possible for us. If she saves one reader some money, the post is worth it. Stop being so hard on her and making her feel bad, this might make her more cautious about posting deals that she hasn't personally tried. And no one can try out each and every deal available, it's not humanly possible.


20 Denise February 24, 2010 at 12:39 am

Dear Me Target Cashier,
I'm sure what Kelly meant was that by doing your job, you can manually adjust the coupon down to match the amount of the purchase. This is part of Target's coupon policy and I've had cashiers do it for me several times. Most of the readers here on DSM are pretty up on Target's and other stores' coupon policies, and nobody on here is trying to say we should do something that's not allowed.


21 Heidi February 24, 2010 at 3:13 am

Very excited! I saw these at my Target yesterday, then found out I had a 4$ credit on paypal so I ordered 10 coupons!


22 Tonya February 24, 2010 at 7:38 am

why are people so grouchy about these deals?

point blank- if you think you can do a better job letting everyone in the U.S know all the deals- then create a great blog yourself. You'll see you will get many nasty, condescending comments, too.

I love Tara's site. I know, going into stores, that I may not find the deals. I have, too, called ahead if I was planning on making a special trip.

Not sure if "me" is a Target cashier, but do not take the all-encompassing comments about cashiers in general to mean you. holy moly people...
I have to educate many store managers/directors about their policies as it relates to coupons. I am ALWAYS right as I have a print out of the policy in hand and the corporate office on speed dial.

Me, if you are a Target cashier, what you have been told IS incorrect. You are, by policy, suppose to adjust the coupon down.

So, having said all of that... let's go shopping people! And, for crying out loud, have fun, save money and lighten up!


23 Tara J February 24, 2010 at 8:18 am

I found these on a special end cap near the Body Washes and scored 6 for free - the coupon did beep, as do almost all coupons at Target, but the Cashier hit K-1 to accept when she verified that I purchased the correct product. Wish I had more coupons...


24 Heather @ Spectacular Savings February 24, 2010 at 8:19 am

I found them on a sidecap (does that make sense?). It wasn't in the aisle with the rest of the body wash but it wasn't on an end cap. It was at the end of an aisle, on a hanging sidecap. I did include a picture of where it was found on my blog post, if that helps.

My coupons did beep but I think it was because it was 3.98. My cashier just pushed them through. If they won't do that, they should adjust the price based on Target's policy. That's why I always carry mine with me!

The 12 oz size is 3.99. The one I bought was 8.4 and priced at 1.99.

Hope that helps!


25 Kelly February 24, 2010 at 8:49 am

Thank you ladies for trying to clear up what I meant about my comment. You are exactly right! Some cashiers will give you so much trouble about a coupon, when it clearly matches the item, or they have to adjust the price. If it's in the policy, then there isn't any reason why we should catch attitude about it. I had a cashier last week actually try to tell me that there was nothing she could do about a Target coupon not working. I had the EXACT item pictured and described and she tried to hand the coupon back to me and say there was nothing she could do about it. I had to tell her that there WAS something she could do about it and that she SHOULD since it was for the exact item I was purchasing. She actually SNATCHED the coupons out of my hand. I was fuming.

To ME Cashier, I hope you read the policy again soon... you'll have a lot less heartache in your checkout line if you do.

Thanks again ladies! Keep those bargains coming! :)


26 Katie February 24, 2010 at 9:07 am

Well said Tonya!! I bought GE reveal light bulbs at target this week, with a $1.50 target coupon and $1 manufacters coupon. the bulbs were on sale for $2.09, so it I thought i would get a .31 cents overage, or they would adjust it, but instead, the cashier changed the price of the bulbs to $3.69, the regular price!! When I looked at my receipt, and took it to customer service, she acted like she didnt know what the problem was with that. I asked her when it was up to the cashier to decide who pays what sale price and who pays regular price. She gave me a refund on the bulbs (full price and didnt take off the coupon discount) and let me keep the bulbs.


27 jennC February 24, 2010 at 9:46 am

Susie Coupon, I have PERSONALLY seen these at an endcap and purchased them.


28 Janet February 24, 2010 at 9:52 am

Awesome deal! I was at Target last night but didn't look for these! I will be going back for sure! Thanks for all the great deals!


29 Christina February 24, 2010 at 10:17 am

Deal Seeking Mom,

Will you Marry me?


30 noelle February 24, 2010 at 10:23 am

Thanks for the tip, Deal Seeking mom!
Thanks to everyone else who provided useful information to help locate these!


31 Beka February 24, 2010 at 10:50 am

I am really excited about the possibility of these! Thanks!


32 Dizzy Mommy February 24, 2010 at 11:21 am

If you don't see these at your Target check back in a few days after they stock. With the Axe deal (which my brothers are oh so thankful for...and so am I since they live with us.) anyhow... with that deal I checked and couldn't find them. The next time I was there I checked and the same thing. Then I ran in there to grab some diapers... and boom they were sitting on an endcap. I got several bottles... the sales kid told me they were sitting in the back and they manager didn't have them put out till the body wash needed to be restocked.


33 M.P. February 24, 2010 at 12:18 pm

I found them on a front sidecap-one row over from the regular body wash section.
Coupons beeped because of the two cent discrepancy, but my cashier just pushed them through.
Love your site and all your great work on these deals!


34 Tricia February 24, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Thanks for posting where you found them everyone. I will go back later this week. I didn't have much time yesterday so I just checked the regular shelf. Did I mention I LOVE this blog?


35 christina February 24, 2010 at 1:01 pm

i just went and did this deal- i had to search, but i cound them on an end cap. i had 3 coupons, so i got 4 bodywashes and 2 clinical strength deodorants for my hubby!! the machine beeped, but the manager came and adjusted them down. total: .76 cents (tax)- thanks deal seeking mom!!


36 Karen February 24, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Bonnie and Tonya,
Maybe people get grouchy because not everyone gets to "dash" to the store, some have to make a trip and it is disappointing to not be able to find posted deals. I'm always happy when I glean something from a blog that saves me money, but I also keep in mind that the people writing the blogs are being compensated by various means also. A blog is a business and any business will have both negative and positive feedback. Everyone could've been a little kinder in these posts, Tara herself was quite gracious.


37 Ashli February 24, 2010 at 1:32 pm

What is the deal on deodorant that a couple people have mentioned?


38 Tara Kuczykowski February 24, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Oh, I hope everyone knows I was joking about the dashing off to the store. I never recommend making a special trip for a single deal unless you have other errands, etc.


39 Sarah February 24, 2010 at 2:03 pm

i don't understand how this works?!?! I am new to the whole coupon shopping thing :)


40 amy February 24, 2010 at 2:13 pm

i went today and got the last 4. the coupons beeped but the cashier put them thru


41 AMY LARUE February 24, 2010 at 2:18 pm

I thought my Target didn't have it either because it wasn't with the other Gilette Body Washes. Our Target had it stocked at the end of the aisle. Maybe that's what is happening to those of you who can't find this product.


42 janet February 24, 2010 at 4:19 pm

I found these on an endcap near the same aisle but they - they were NOT on the shelf with the other body washes. The employee said the only slot for them is on the endcap where I found them.. so check those!


43 Kris February 24, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Does anyone know if you have to go to a SuperTarget for this deal, or will the regular Target have it also? I'll be near a regular Target this evening but ST is far away.


44 Tara Kuczykowski February 24, 2010 at 8:07 pm

It should be valid at all stores.


45 Sandy February 24, 2010 at 8:15 pm

You can go to a regular Target for this deal. I found my 8 bottles by the toothpaste endcap - FREE.


46 Maria February 24, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Thanks Tara !!
You are the best!!
I found them on a front sidecap at the regular body wash section.


47 Courtney February 24, 2010 at 10:20 pm

I just picked up 2 bottles, since I only had 1 coupon, but that was awesome anyway. My husband grouches when I store it, but it's not like this stuff is going to go bad ;) Do people buy multiple newspapers? How do you end up with so many copies of a coupon?!!


48 Katie February 24, 2010 at 10:23 pm

If there are going to be good coupons in the paper, I will get more thsn one copy. I am also in a coupon exchange group. I love it. you send the ones you dont want/use to the next person in your group, and when you get an envelope, take out the ones you want, replace them with ones you have and pass on.


49 H2 February 24, 2010 at 11:16 pm

Has anyone found these at a Target in Dayton or Columbus, Ohio?


50 katie February 25, 2010 at 1:03 am

Does anyone know the DPCI# for these? I couldn't find them, but they were redoing this whole area of my Target, and half the items were stacked in grocery carts. I thought maybe if I had the DPCI they could just look it up on the "scanner guns" that they have. Thanks if you do!
