We all love Target but we also know that it’s incredibly hard to leave without a cart full of things that we probably didn’t even need. So, how do you get those impulse items and not break the bank? Here are my tips on how to save money at Target.
Make a “Need” List
Never go to Target without a list. Your list should always include the items you’ll need for the coming week, including things like laundry detergent, toilet paper, soap, groceries, diapers, etc. This is your must-have list. If nothing else, you will at least leave with these items. Figure out approximately how much you’re going to spend. Then I’m going to help you save money on these items, so that if you find something you can’t live without (or something you forgot to add to the list), you’ll have that extra money to spend!
If you don’t get the Sunday paper, you can still find manufacturer coupons online. I like to search sites like coupons.com. Just use their search function, type in the brand name and it will pull up all available coupons. Just print them, cut them and voila! Just make sure to pay attention to exclusions and don’t forget to put them in your wallet so that you don’t leave them at home!
Target’s policy states the following:
- Only one manufacturer coupon (paper or Cartwheel digital), one Target coupon (paper or digital), and one Cartwheel℠offer can be combined per item.
You read that correctly! You can COMBINE coupons. That means, you can use more than one to save even more money! Score!
Download the Target App. Through the app, you’ll be able to find coupons, extra deals and the weekly ad. It’s easy to search for deals, which you can save to your digital wallet.
For example, on the app today, you can save an offer for 10% off any Tide PODS (61 or 81ct) or 5% off Tide liquid detergent. So, combine either of those with the manufacturer coupon above and you are saving even more money!
Target Debit Card
Did you know that you can sign up for the Target Debit Card and save 5% on every single purchase you make at Target? The card connects directly to your bank account, so it’s not a credit card. There are no hidden fees or interest charges, it just pulls the money out of your account, just as your debit card would. It’s a great way to save another 5%!
Combine that with the manufacturer coupon and the cartwheel deal and you’ve saved even more money!
Target Gift Card Deals
Oh, I’m not done yet. When you go to Target, you’ll find little signs in the aisle, offering you special deals.
For example, this week, when you use Order Pickup to buy 2 laundry, cleaning or paper products, they’ll give you a $5 Target gift card! That’s 5 items from the dollar area or $5 toward something else you’ve had your eye on.
Combine that with the manufacturer coupon and the cartwheel deal and the 5% off for using the Target Debit card and well, they are practically paying you to shop!
Now It’s Your Turn!
Now that you know my secrets, it’s time to save some money! I’m sure you have some laundry to do, so I’ll get you started. In our home, we use New Tide PODS 2.0, which have been upgraded with better stain and odor removal power. Their 4-in-1 technology includes detergent, stain remover, color protector and built-in pre-treaters. They are the #1 Stain Removal*, #1 Odor Removal*, #1 Trusted**
Tide is offering a $3 Tide PODS coupon AND a $3 Tide Detergent coupon, nationally, across all retailers, from now through February 2, 2019. The offers cannot be stacked (though you can combine one of them in the ways I have mentioned above). This coupon can be used at any retailer, not just Target! It’s easy to print at home. *Note: you must create a log in account to leverage print at home coupons.
$3 OFF ONE Tide PODS (excludes Tide Liquid/Powder Laundry Detergent,
Tide Simply, Tide Simply PODS, and Tide PODS 9 ct and below, and trial/travel size)
$3 OFF ONE Tide Detergent (excludes Tide PODS, Tide Simply, Tide Simply
PODS, Tide Detergent 10 oz and trial/travel size)
