For newbie coupon collectors or the veterans as well who might not be too familiar with Target coupon policy well, Target has quite a few “rules”. I highly recommend you to get familiar with its Corporate Coupon Policy and Price Matching Policy. Don't forget to print both of these off and carry them with you whenever you shop at Target.
Target can be a great store to shop at if you know what you’re doing and with that I mean–know how to use your coupons correctly; know what to look for while shopping; and know that it’s OK to stick up for yourself! Hopefully, the “Follow Me Monday” Target video below will show you how to become a confident and fearless Target shopper!:-)
Before watching the video, you may want to read through these Target tips! I do go over most of these in the video, but I also wanted to mention the tips below for those of you who may have a hard time hearing me.
*Target has in-store coupons that can be paired up with manufacturer coupons for even more savings! You can print these coupons from the Target site or from here! However, you CANNOT print these coupons from the kiosk within a Target store anymore. I show that you can in the video, but, since then, Target has updated its coupon system and no longer offers coupons through the kiosk. Sorry for the confusion.
*Make sure to always hand over all your manufacturer coupons first–before Target store coupons. This technique will minimize coupon beepage–which we Hip2Savers try to avoid at all costs!:-)
*When shopping, keep your eyes peeled for red clearance stickers, peelie and tearpad coupons, price cuts, and other discounts! By combining these types of sales with coupons, you can score some sweet deals!
*Promotions to watch for while shopping or while flipping through the weekly ads: Target Gift Card deals! These gift card promotions may last for a week, month, or even longer. They may be posted inside the store but not in the circular – so be on the lookout! To access a Target Gift Card, you usually have to buy certain participating products – and by doing so, you receive the card at check out. The cashier will be prompted by the register to give you a gift card. You won’t be able to use the gift card on that purchase, but you can use the gift card on future purchases. Unlike Walgreens Register Rewards, you can keep “rolling” the same gift card deals over and over again! This helps to lower your out-of-pocket expense!
*Finally, remember that you are doing nothing wrong! If you get a grouchy cashier, just ignore the person and smile… You’re obviously in a better place, and they most likely want to be where you are!
