I went to Target tin scanned at $3.44 ! I saw the sign tho..took it to the checkout and got the tin and free refills BUT since she had to adjust the price it did not print the gift card(s) and the teller told me it did NOT apply to refills! The refills DID ring up at $2.50 tho. She did deduct $5.00 from my bill which made it totally free but boy was I disappointed not to get any gift cards! May go back tomorrow with my receipt and try and get the card! What a hassle !

Bandit, I hate to use the tins and through them out too (because of the buy a tin get a free refill offer, that I have done so often) I starte pulling the insides out and my husband uses the tins for nuts and screws in his workshop, I've sanded some down-spray painted them and the boy/girl scouts have made jewlary boxes out of them, and I use them to put buttons and things in for my sewing box.

reduce-reuse-recycle LOL

Anne, the rebate form says that it has to be in separate envelopes with the original receipt. so you would not be able to submit for more then one rebate with one receipt.

You would have had to break up your order and have each quantity rung up separately to get more then one original receipt to turn in.

I did this, but I wasn't allowed to use any coupons in addition to the BOGO coupons. Also, both Targets I visited here in CT had previously removed all the coupons from the tins so consumers wouldn't use them. I was lucky to have some from previous purchases at other stores, but was still not allowed to use them.


5 Kat October 29, 2009 at 8:11 pm

I visited my local Target, and the coupons inside the tins were $2/2.
Sadly, when I got up to cashier, the kid started reading the coupons, and they all said "only 1 coupon per transaction", so while he left in the 3 BOGO's that he scanned previously, he wouldn't take any more coupons. :-( Is that standard policy? How do you get them to accept all the coupons so they pile on at once?


6 Tara Kuczykowski October 29, 2009 at 9:10 pm

Kat, if they say one per transaction, then you may only use one. However, most coupons say one per purchase, which means something totally different. In that case you may use one per item.


7 Hillary October 29, 2009 at 11:29 pm

Thank You Tara! I stocked up tonight and even got two other items and still only paid .88 cents!! Woo Hoo


8 Ellie October 30, 2009 at 10:43 am

Do the canlde tins count as holders, and that's why we want to use the buy the holder and get the refill free coupon?


9 erika October 30, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I just came back from target i oicked up 2 Air Wick Ultra I Motion's 2 Air Wick Scented Oil I Motion's 5 Glade Glass Holiday Scented Oil Candles (I think these are much prettier then the tins) and 5 Glade Scented Oil Refill Packs. My total Pre coupons was 47.77 after coupons my totals was 8.74 which I paid with the target gift cards I got from the kashi deal a couple months ago. Plus I got $10 in gift cards back, so i made $1.26!! Yeah. Thanks TARA!!

O by the way yes Ellie the Candle Tins count as holders, it says it on the lid.


10 JeriLynn October 30, 2009 at 4:23 pm

Love this dea! Bought 5 tins and 5 refills. Used 5 1.50 offs and 5 bogo's. Paid 5.09 and recieved 10.00 in cards. sent in for 15.00 in J & J rebates and my total is ....19.91 DOLLARS THEY PAID ME TO BUY 10 CANDLES!!!!

We will put tem in gift bags for our kids teachers for Christmas!!!


11 Michelle October 30, 2009 at 8:43 pm

Could somebody explain something to me... Im a little confused... I thought that if you use a BOGO coupon you couldn't use any other coupon along with it. But you guys are buying a tin and a refill and using a BOGO and a 1.50 off coupon. Thanks!


12 Tara Kuczykowski October 30, 2009 at 9:04 pm

Michelle, it varies by store as to whether they'll allow you to do this or not. Basically, the BOGO coupon is for the item you're getting free. Thus you can use a $ off coupon on the item you're actually buying. Does that make sense?


13 Michelle October 30, 2009 at 9:26 pm

Yes it does... Thanks Tara


14 Jennifer October 30, 2009 at 11:48 pm

JeriLynn, how were you able to do the rebates? If it's the one I'm thinking of ($5 SC Johnson rebate),each rebate has to be mailed separately with the original receipt. How were you able to use one receipt for 3 rebates or is there a different rebate out there that I'm not aware of?


15 Heidi W. October 31, 2009 at 12:43 am

I went to walmart last night and their tins and refills are $2.25 and they had 1.50 off coupons inside. so I got 2 tins and 2 refills for 75 cents each.


16 Christina October 31, 2009 at 9:57 am

How are you people getting 5 of the BOGO coupons? I printed it twice and now the site is saying that I've already printed it the number of times allowed.


17 Jennifer October 31, 2009 at 12:06 pm

Christina, you can get more than 2 coupons if you have access to more than one computer. Each computer will usually let you print 2 coupons.


18 Beth November 1, 2009 at 4:23 pm

Christina, there are also blinkie machines out with the same BOGO coupon in them. One store near me had two of these machines in the same aisle! Now, if only I could find a Target with some stock!!


19 Brandy November 2, 2009 at 3:49 pm

I went to Target and I didn't get the gift cards :(
I showed the sign to her and she said that it was for other glade candles and that these are not the "holiday" scents.
I'm confused ??????????


20 Tara Kuczykowski November 2, 2009 at 8:20 pm

My store had the tins in a holiday scent at one point. The sticker marking where they were placed on the shelf is still there. Hopefully they will get more in!


21 Kim November 2, 2009 at 11:48 pm

Everywhere here has the coupons pulled out of the tins. I've opened multiple tins at numerous stores and not a coupon to be found.


22 Stephenie November 2, 2009 at 11:53 pm

Every store that has the tins around me have the coupons removed too. I was at walmart tonight and actually saw five of the glass holders plastic box ripped open and left on another shelf because someone wanted the coupons.

So Targets, Walgreens, and Walmart no coupons in the tins. And I'm outside of Chicage area


23 Jason November 4, 2009 at 4:12 pm

I just talked to my wife at Target, who scanned the items on the scanner to view the promo. The Glade holiday jar candles showed a $5 GC would be received with 5; the holiday-scent refills did not. She wasn't willing to try for the deal if it involved the refills and I wouldn't have either, since the promo didn't show up. It's obviously working for some of you though.


24 Lilly November 5, 2009 at 6:34 pm

When you use the blinkies, do they show that as its not being sold after they enter the price amount?? one cashier said she would only do it one time and she pushed all of it through. she said that they get in trouble when they push Qs through.


25 carol November 6, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I was not allowed to use the coupons that counted towards the tins. Also they had removed all the coupons out of the tins. Luckily I had some of my own, but like I said was not allowed to use them on top of the BOGO. I also got only one $5 gift card. After all the hassle I had to do with the coupons, I did not feel like saying anything about the second gift card. I was highly disappointed.


26 D November 11, 2009 at 3:30 am

I love this site.

I just returned from doing this deal in Culver City, CA. I used 5 $1.50 off 1 & 5 BOGO refill coupons in a mix of newspaper, print-at-home, and one blinkie. My pretax total was $8.51 and I received two GCs. After scrutinizing my receipt, I notice that two of my coupons did not ring up--the clerk did not say anything about them not going through, however. Strange--and darn!--I'll have to be more observant in future when using a lot of coupons. Three of the holders had '$2 off 2 scented oil candle products coupons'. And may I just say that it is downright sleazy for merchants/shoppers to remove/steal in-product coupons.

BTW, Target have a "5 cents off every time you use a reusable bag" promotion (printed on the bottom of my receipt).


27 tammy November 11, 2009 at 4:54 am

Hi everyone saved a bundle on glade today! bought 21 glade candle holder (holiday version with a refill) the $2 /2 coupon worked fine, I think I may take some back tomorrow and trade for some candles. I paid $24.32 and got $20 in target gift card back so it cost me .32 cents. you have to watch because only the Holiday scents came up for the gift card in our area. Also the coupon for buy a refill get a oil warmer free works for bogof holiday sets with oil refill and burner set I was happy! whoohoo thanks so much for all the great savings!


28 Anny November 11, 2009 at 7:15 am

Use 1--Buy 2 Refills Get 1 Refill Free (hope this works)
Pay $1.00 for all 5 Get $5.00 Gift Card


29 memw November 11, 2009 at 11:39 am

So If you get 2 coupons to print, you could just copy them on a printer same thing right?if you look at the numbers on the coupons they both match... just a thought.


30 Tara Kuczykowski November 11, 2009 at 12:44 pm

Memw, photocopying coupons is illegal and can not only get you in trouble, but the stores lose money because they can't redeem them. I'm not being hard on you, because I know a lot of people aren't aware of this, so I like to take the opportunity to inform everyone whenever it comes up.

Most printable coupons have the same bar code but separate redemption codes that can only be redeemed once. So if a store gets 10 coupons with the same redemption code, they're only going to get reimbursed for one of them. This hurts everyone in the long run because stores will ultimately stop accepting them.


31 tammy November 11, 2009 at 2:54 pm

The coupons I printed off the site all seem to have a water mark of some sort. I would never dream of photocopying, I think we're lucky to get what we do and very lucky to have someone like Tara who helps us save what we already save.


32 Barbara Russell November 13, 2009 at 12:10 am

I had the same problem I bought 2 packs of oil refills 2 candles and 1 scented oil. She said I did not get the gift card as they were not glade air care items. I am emailing a complaint through the Target website. If we all do that maybe they will stop ripping off their customers


33 jen November 14, 2009 at 3:34 am

When is this deal over?


34 Tara Kuczykowski November 14, 2009 at 12:02 pm

The tags in the stores say it's going on through 12/26.


35 tammy November 14, 2009 at 3:06 pm

Hi guys, when I purchased the holder with the refill which are special for the holiday It counted as the buy a holder get a refill free! awesome christmas gifts. Also, I am not in love with the "oils" becaue they don't last as long as the candles, so after getting my discount, I took back the oils and refills the next day to exchange for candles. When I did that the lady, returned them and gave me a gift card for $35! which I didn't expect. You guys are entitled to the gift cards, don't leave until you get them! But, remember the holiday scents are the only ones you will get the $5 g.c. on.
have a blessed holiday!


36 jen November 15, 2009 at 3:38 am

when you got the holder with the refill packages, what else did you buy with those? I'm trying to figure out how you did this and use the buy a holder get a refill free coupon.
the deal that i've done that works well is to buy 5 of either the tins or the glass candle holders, and 5 refills packages. I used 5 $1.50 off qs and 5 free refills wyb candle holders. So I paid $5 and a got 2 GCs back. It doesn't matter what kind of candle holder I bought, or that i did in fact buy the refills......the free refill q would not only require the amount to be put in, but also the cashier had to push it thru by pressing K1.


37 Sandra November 15, 2009 at 4:40 pm

Here at my store they don't know anything about the glade special. Is there anything that I can print out to show them to get my giftcards? Thanks.


38 tammy November 16, 2009 at 1:27 pm

Jen, Becuse the refill was with the holder it satisfied buying the holder for the free one which was also the holiday refill/holder all in one. Only one of my targets had this holiday set. It does work! Good Luck!

Sandra to answer your Question:

Try downloading Target weekly sale ad it was in the back of their ad. if you can't find it in your area try my zip code 95621 Good luck!!!


39 Holly November 16, 2009 at 5:04 pm

I'm just wondering, is it really a good idea to buy something with a coupon specifically for that item, then to take them all back and get something else? I have heard stores complaining about people doing that, and I can tell you, it will make it a lot harder for us when we are using coupons. I had a Target manager tell me once that someone came in and bought a bunch of stuff with coupons, then came back and returned it ALL. They know when this kind of stuff happens. It's not good for the store and it's not good for coupons. Please, anyone who thinks it might be a good idea to do this, don't. I don't want a crackdown on coupons at Target like last year with the Toy coupon.


40 tammy November 16, 2009 at 6:24 pm

Holly, My intention was not to return the items it was the decision of the girl at the Customer Service Desk who felt that it was easier for her to do so. Secondly, as long as they get the money I don't see where or what it matters what inventory is sold for the item. Lastly, they get a certain amount of money for handling the coupon so they weren't hurt in my transaction I assure you.


41 jen November 16, 2009 at 9:02 pm

when you scan one of the holiday Glade items, it should say on the price scanner machine that there is a gift card offer, but other than that, i don't know how you'd prove the details of the promo.


42 april November 17, 2009 at 11:17 pm

Sandra, it was on the back of the ad (top right corner) that came out Sunday 11/08/09. Hope this helps... I have found that the Target here in Fort Smith, AR takes the coupons out of the tins so that customers can't use them. They also remove them from items in the grocery section, specifically the lunch meat.


43 Lisa November 19, 2009 at 12:54 am

Some of the Glade products do not come with the coupons inside. I watched them pull some of the items out of a box to put on the shelf and there were no Qs inside. I will say that more times than not someone has taken the Qs out and not put the lids back on :(


44 tammy November 19, 2009 at 12:37 pm

I didn't find any Q's in any of my stores either. They may not be giving them any longer from the manufacturer.
It makes me mad when someone either doesnt' replace lids or destroys packaging to save $ that doesn't do any good.


45 Lisa November 19, 2009 at 10:52 pm

I know that some products still have the Q inside, not all of them though. I went to WM and they have them (a big display of the new holiday smells) - with the Q inside. And Home Depot has the holiday ones and they have the Q inside too.
At Target - it is just some people taking them out and then leaving a mess :( Just so they get the deal.


46 Nikki December 16, 2009 at 2:22 pm

I know it has been a while since this post was made but I am making a comment anyway. I did this deal before but about a week ago I went to do the deal again and they would not let me use the $1.50 Q with the BOGO coupon. Her reasoning was that you would be using 2 coupons on 1 item. I said that the bogo applies to the refill, not the tin. She said that the Bogo coupon states you have to buy the tin to get the refill free. I said that I am buying it and I am paying for it partially with a coupon. She said that I wouldn't be buying it if I was paying for it with a coupon and that it would be using 2 coupons on 1 item and the Target coupon policy states that you can only use 1 manufacturer coupon per item. (I know that it says that and I agree with it. I just don't agree with her interpretation of using BOGO's and $ off Q's in this situation.) I said then why have I been able to do this exact same deal a week or 2 ago. Her reply didn't surprise me. She said the cashier can push a coupon through and that I wasn't supposed to be able to do it and I got one heck of a deal out of Target and they know that this has been going on and they are trying to crack down on it. I left mad, frustrated, empty handed, and feeling like a criminal. I would have asked for a supervisor but she is the supervisor. I really don't like dealing with people who think they are educated and know the rules but they don't really know the rules or are interpreting it incorrectly!


47 Tammy December 16, 2009 at 2:59 pm


Thanks for sharing your story, it sounds like a very bad ordeal.
I'm sorry you had to endure such embarrassment at the hands of a Target employee, I've run into the "coupon police" before. they are just miserable people who seem like they want to penalize us for being thrifty and smart. I say if the computer takes it, who are they to argue! Where's the Christmas Spirit? and what kind of comment was that "cracking down?" on us? what are we shoplifters? I hope you got her name and reported her to someone much higher up on food chain.
