Be a "Target" Shopper

Have you ever wondered what is so great about shopping at Target and why its a favorite for so many people?
Here are some reasons why Target is unique:
***Target has Store Printable Coupons on its website that one can print and use in conjunction with Manufacturers Coupons. This becomes substantial savings. Target will update their coupons online every couple weeks, so check the website often.
*** Target frequently has "Target Coupons" in the coupon inserts in the Sunday Paper. Common coupons include diapers, formula, shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, makeup and so much more. They can be stacked with manufacturers coupons as well to maximize savings.
*** Target receipts often have coupons on them for next visit. So after you double check the numbers on the receipt, be on the lookout for more savings printed beneath.
*** Use coupons on trial sized items and get them for free. Target has a large selection of trial size items. Use your almost expiring coupons (the ones that don't exclude trial sizes) on trial size items. Some Travel Size samples:
Tide Detergent travel size $0.99, use $1.00 MFQ= Free
Tylenol travel size, 8 ct $0.99, use $1.00 MFQ= Free
Secret Deodorant trial size $0.99, use $1.00 MFQ= Free
All Small & Mighty $0.99, use $1.00 MFQ= Free
Check out additional items such as 25 ct Ziploc bags (located in checkout aisle), travel size shampoos, lotions & body wash. In the baby aisle Johnson's buddies bar are always $1.00 or less and are free with the many $1.00 coupons out there, travel size baby wipes, as well as many personal products too.
*** Holiday Clearance at Target is a great opportunity for savings. Shop the day after the holiday and you will see prices slashed to 50% off and approximately 3 days later prices will be down to 75% off.
*** Have Kids? Sign up for the Birthday Mailer and receive $5/$50 coupon when their Birthday rolls around.
*** Expecting a Baby? Getting Married? Sign up for the Gift Registries and receive a coupon as well.

How to find more deals yourself: Browse the Target flier especially the last few pages for the great deals on food and household items. Bo on the lookout for very small Target Gift Card Photos that are sometimes pictured near some sale items. Read the small print, which may say ...get a $5 gift card when you buy (5) cereals... etc. Then look to see if you can combine them with any Target coupons (online, newspaper inserts, Catalina's- end of receipt coupons), Manufacturers Coupons and subtract the amount you will receive as a Gift Card= final price you will pay for the item. Many times Target will also give other gift items when buying selected items pictured.

* Buy one get one free products- you can use (2) coupons, one for each product. Example: Razors are $4.99 on sale and B1G1 Free, you can use (2) $2.00 coupons = $0.99 for 2 packs of razors that would usually cost $10.00+ for both.
* Combine Buy one get one free coupons with the Buy one get one free sale and get both items for free.
* Always bring your almost expiring coupons to the trial size area and match them up to get stuff for free.
* Know your Target's store policy regarding Manufacturers Coupons, Internet Coupons , Rainchecks etc.
