Target Thread Rules:

  • Do not ask (even in a covert way) for any coupon that has been scanned or discuss any coupon that is not used for its intended purpose. This goes for ALL scanned – this is what ALTERED means – this will cause this thread to shut down, per Moderator warning.
  • Do not post directly to Ebay auctions. It is considered self-promotion because the mods don’t have a way to verify if you are the seller or not.
  • Do not discuss or promote unethical and/or illegal activities with coupons or GCs (i.e. using expired coupons, using fake coupons, etc). Do not post expired coupons. Do not discuss ways to use expired manufacturer’s coupons (Clarification of this rule can be found here.)
  • Do not discuss ways to misuse the true intent of a manufacturer coupon.
  • Target.com has changed to the E-Centives coupon printing system where you have to download special software that keeps track of what you printed, like bricks coupons. The coupons print out directly to your printer. The manufacturer coupons printed from the Target.com website can NOT be posted here as they have a unique serial number above the right hand barcode. Target coupons printed from sites such as RedPlum are also now individually encoded and can NOT be posted here as well. If a Target coupon (such as those currently from Target.com) is not individually coded, it can be posted here.
  • In keeping with SD rules, multiple per pages (MPPs) must be hosted off site, such as with google docs.
  • Finally - Mod Alert any fighting! The mods would rather catch it in the beginning, versus going back 5 pages to see what happened.

Dear Target Guest,


Thanks for asking again about using coupons at Target. Coupons are a great way to save even more when shopping at Target, and we make it easy to use them at our stores. But because of the variety of coupons available to our guests, we do have some guidelines for how coupons can be redeemed at Target:
  • We accept two kinds of coupons: Target-issued coupons and manufacturer-issued coupons.
  • We'll accept one Target coupon and one manufacturer coupon for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits it.
  • We can't give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item; in that case, we'll adjust the value of the coupon to equal the price of the item.
  • We can't accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in our stores.
  • All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier at the time of sale.
In addition, Target empowers the store to limit the number of items a guest buys with coupons. We reserve the right to limit purchases to reasonable family-size quantities. Have questions or want more information about using coupons at Target? Check with a Guest Services Team Leader at your local store. You can also give us a call at (800) 440-0680, or visit us on Target.com. Either way, we're here to help!

Thanks for shopping with us. We'll see you again soon at Target.
Sincerely,

Larry
Target Guest Relations

Dear Target Guest,

Thanks for writing back regarding our coupon acceptance at Target. When a coupon states one per purchase, and you have more than one, you can use one coupon per item, as each item is considered a purchase and not a transaction.

We always welcome your questions, so if we can assist you in the future, please contact our Target Guest Relations team at (800) 440-0680. You can also speak with a team member at the Guest Services Desk at your local Target store, or visit us on Target.com. Either way, we're here to help!

Thanks for shopping with us. I hope we'll see you again soon at Target.

Sincerely,

Julie

You will then receive texts from Target supplying you a link to go to on your phone. You will need internet on your phone to use that link. Just show the barcode to your cashier and they just need to scan it.

Coupon is unique per phone# and can only be used once per item.

Don't have internet on your phone? That fine- sign up any way and then on your computer go here [target.com]. Enter your phone number and print out the barcode.

Other Target Information


1. Mark Down Schedule - Please note that the list may not be entirely accurate, as some stores have reportedly made changes to this schedule and other stores may be days (or weeks) behind schedule!
  • Monday - Electronics, Kids Clothing and Stationary (Cards, GiftWrap, etc.)
  • Tuesday - Domestics, Women's Clothing, Pets and Market (food items)
  • Wednesday - Men's Clothing, Toys, Health and Beauty, Lawn & Garden items
  • Thursday - House Wares, Lingerie, Shoes, Sporting Goods, Movies, Music, Books, Decor and Luggage
  • Friday - Auto, Cosmetics, Hardware, & Jewelry
2. Holiday Clearance Schedule Please note that with the last few holidays, stores are not as rigid with this schedule and can be a day or two ahead or behind. Bagged holiday candy is slower to be marked down than other holiday merchandise.
  • 50% off day after holiday for three days
  • 75% off fourth day after holiday for three days
  • 90% off seventh day after holiday for 1-2 days.
3. Target Price Adjustment Policy
  • Target price adjustments can be done for 14 days (excluding clearance). If you purchase an item and it goes on sale within the next 2 weeks, you can take your receipt to Customer Service for a price adjustment.
4. Target Rainchecks
  • If an item you want is out of stock, there should be a little tear off pad with rainchecks. You tear one off and take it to the cashier, tell them the quantity you want, and they will print a raincheck. Please note, current rainchecks do not have a barcode and when you go to use a raincheck, the cashier has to manually type it in rather than scanning a barcode.
5. Coupons Available at Target Computer Kiosks
  • Target.com has switched to using E-Centives coupon printable software that limits and tracks the number of coupons you print and Target coupons can no longer be printed at the in store kiosks because of this.

6. Missed Coupon Policy
Quote from pharmstudent01 View Post :
There's no one answer as to the time frame a missed coupon can be taken off receipt... It depends on the store and the person at customer service. Some stores say till the end of the day. Some stores say 3 days. Some say 1 week. And some say until receipt is valid (90-days) Some don't care (so that would also mean 90-days).
7. Price Matching at Target
  • Target stores will now match prices of other stores with a physical ad of the competing store. Please refer to their official price match policy at their website here [target.com].

8. Out Of Stock Items
  • If an item is out of stock (OOS) on both the shelf and the backroom and needs to be ordered from the warehouse, there will be a small gray dot sticker on the shelf price tag of the item. If there is no gray dot on the shelf price tag, enter the DCPI number into an updated price check scanner to check back room stock of the item. If your store has the old style of scanners, ask a team member to check the stock of the item for you.

9. Contacting Guest Relations
  • (800) 440-0680
  • Guest.Relations@Target.Com
  • Questions, Comments and/or Complaints about Target/Super Target and/or Team Members.
  • When sending a Team Member compliment and/or complaint, keep in mind that ETL's get share-pay bonuses, while Team Members don't. Stores are responsible for store-controlled things like clean restrooms and sales floors, carts and hand baskets available, response time to the jewelry and electronics counters and Guest call buttons, etc. Also, use a different E-mail/name each time, else after 2-3 complaints they just refer you to the Store Team Leader (STL).

Common Abbreviations & Acronyms Throughout the thread, you may find some abbreviations and acronyms that are confusing, as some are very specific to Target. Here are some of the most common you'll see mentioned repeatedly.
  • AC = After Coupon(s) (as in, "I used 4 MQs and 3 TQs, so my total AC was $1.23.")
  • AF = Archer Farms
  • AP = Asset Protection ("Loss Prevention" or LP for many other stores)
  • BC = Before Coupon(s) (as in, "My total BC was $56.78.")
  • BOGO = Buy One, Get One free
  • Blinkie = In store, on aisle coupon dispenser with blinking LED light
  • GSTL = Guest Services Team Leader (Cashier Supervisor)
  • HTH = Hope That Helps
  • INF = Item Not Found. Usually refers to an item that has been on clearance and has been salvaged.
  • LOD = Leader on Duty [like a Manager on Duty (either the store manager or a store asst. manager)
  • MM = Money maker
  • MQ = Manufacturer's Coupon
  • MP = Market Pantry
  • MPP = Multiples Per Page
  • OOP = Out of Pocket
  • OOS = Out of Stock
  • PA = Price Adjustment
  • PM (first meaning) = Private Message
  • PM (second meaning) = Price Match
  • Peelie = Peel away coupon on retail package
  • RP = Redplum
  • Q = Coupon
  • SS = Smart Source
  • TL = Team Lead [a level of Target mgmt. (supervisor, department manager)]
  • TPC = Temporary Price Cut
  • TQ = Target Coupon
  • V = Vendor Coupon
  • YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary (as in, something may or may not work for you)

How do I let someone know they've posted a no-no?
  • If you feel it would be beneficial and helpful to the thread as a whole, go ahead and post an answer. But if you need to correct someone on an etiquette issue or on coupon use, try PM'ing them first. That avoids embarrassment and negative posts. The mods are watching our thread closely--we want to keep things helpful and pleasant.

Quote from whatalotofstuff View Post :
Here's an important couple of tips.. Smilie

1) Target puts out their own coupons on their website. You can combine Target coupons and use them with manufacturer's coupons. So if you have a Target coupon for Heinz Ketchup for $1.00, and a manufacturer's coupon for Heinz Ketchup for $1.00 - you are allowed to use them both together and get $2.00 off your ketchup purchase. Smilie So check Target's website, I think they put up new coupons every other weekend.

2) You can also find Target coupons in the newspaper. If they aren't in your newspaper, check e*bay and coupon clipper sites - do a search for "Target coupons" and see what comes up. You can also combine these with manufacturer's coupons. Right now there are Target insert/newspaper coupons for $2.00 off Kotex items and there are manufacturer's coupons for $1.00 or $.50 off Kotex items. This makes some of the Kotex items FREE.

3) Check your coupons and make sure that they don't say "excludes trial items" on them. If they don't, you should be able to use them on trial items, potentially getting them FREE. (This varies from store to store, some stores will refuse you.) Not long ago, there were $1.00 Tide detergent coupons, and you could use them on the Tide trial sizes which were $1.00 = FREE Tide.

4) Keep your eyes open for coupons in the actual store. Sometimes Target will have tearpads, peelies, hangtags, etc, that are Target coupons. Again, you can combine them with your manufacturer coupons. Right now there are $1.00 Target Ziplock coupons attached to some Ziplock items in the store + $1.00 Ziplock manufacterer coupons = some pretty cheap darn Ziplock stuff..

5) Watch the Target ads for gift card deals. These are AWESOME. Combined with coupons, sometimes Target will pay YOU to take items off their hands. The last major one I remember was the Venus or Fusion razors.. it was buy two, get a $5 or $10 gift card, I can't remember which. And there were $4 coupons available to use on the razors. Buy two razors, use two $4 coupons and get handed a gift card back.. good deal. woot There's also a Sobe gift card deal coming up, making the Sobe free using coupons.

6) Keep your eyes open for coupons that say "buy x product, get y product free." Then combine those with other coupons. Example: I had coupons for $1.00 off Chinet plates. I also had coupons for FREE Heinz ketchup when you buy Chinet plates. I ALSO had $3 off $15 partyware purchase Target coupon. Combine all those, and I now live in a Chinet fort and take baths in ketchup. Big Grin My skin has never looked so smooth (and tomatoey) and my utility bills have never been so high. (I'm kidding, I'm kidding.. laugh out loud)

Hope that helps out a little bit. We were all new once. Feel free to PM someone when you have a question about something they post here.. if they don't answer, at least you tried, right? And a bunch of people will answer.

... she said she was using $10 printable coupons for the bounty. Maybe these were coupons she made in her basement.
$10 printable bounty Q's my *bleep* I'm with the rest of you they gotta be the Crest WS Q's. I'd never have the cahones (sp?) to do what she is doing at Target. I've heard of some stores firing employees for allowing such abuse. OK, OK I'm no angel there was that one store in my town that for two glorious months openly allowed (by authority of the head store manager) the use of any Q that would scan without beeping regardless of what was pictured. (Not Target) When the management was so blatantly allowing such usage it was just too much for me, I couldn't resist. Shoot nearly everytime I walked into the store at least one employee would try to tell me how I could use the "wrong" Q's, Got enough Charmin & Tide to last a year during those 2 months.

One last note. I don't exactly try to fly under the radar and I don't mind trying to use more than one T Q in a transaction (figure it is a YMMV), but I do believe in keeping orders to a reasonable size if possible. Keeps employees, managers & customers in a better mood. But the other day I ended up behind a gal with 2 heaping carts full of all our recent deals, SOBE, GE, Scrubbing Bubbles, Airwick, etc. We had a young male clerk so I thought I'd wait it out. I swear her stack of Q's was over 3 inches thick and I'm not exaggerating. All went well for nearly 2/3rd of the transaction. He was a K1 jedi on the Airwick beeping scents and the beeping Sobe flavors, but then a LOD came over to see what was taking so long and next thing they were pouring over each Q and every item in her overloaded carts. On a positive note for me it distracted the LOD for so long I was able to check out 4 separate times with 30-40 Sobe in each transaction taking the time to load each in the car without her being free to wander over my way and start going on about the 1 T Q per transaction rule. (BTW - I barely made a dent in the Sobe it was very well stocked)

This is major coupon fraud and I can not believe the cashier K1's everything. They need to put this lady in some handcuffs and teach her a lesson.

$4.00 MQ for Olay Total Effects BW on Secret Deodorant
$2.00 TQ for Nivea Q10 Shave Gel or Balm on Nivea Body Wash
$4.00 MQ for Schick Intuition Razor or Refill (expired 6/6) on Schick Shave Gel
$1.00 IP for Vaseline Clinical Therapy paired with the .75 TQ on Vaseline Lotion
(3.1 oz or larger)on Vaseline Total Moisture (3.0 oz)
$5.00 MQ for Windex Outdoor All In One Glass Cleaning Tool on the Windex

Also, it looked like she was having the lady go and get her the $3.99 Schick Razors T carries from the back and that is prob why she had to get a Schick gel bc the lady did not have the 18 razors she needed to use all of her Q's.

Go and look at the pics on her blog.

There are sooooo many things wrong with this youtube poster- DivaforcouponFRAUD is more like it.

Can someone please, please, please pass this along to corp. and the powers that be to do what they will. It scares me to think of her TEACHING others her methods of gross interpretation. Then, imagine her little minions let loose upon the world. Her "graduate" was the one with a $600+ transaction down to $6, or so. EEEK!!

I think I'm about to hurl my Sobe up.

The dollar amnt she and her little friend "saved"/ coupon abused/stole (almost $1000 worth right??) would be considered theft and should hopefully get her arrested.

Anyone here can and should report her to that Target Store(or all target store managers in her area, include her whosit personal info from her blog and her blog name as well as the video links)

She is not only infecting that area with teaching fraud but her videos could be breeding other would be fraudsters in ALL OF OUR AREAS

The managers at this particular store need to be aware of the exact coupons she used and what they were actually for so that the MGRS can grasp just HOW MUCH she illegally stole (with coupon abuse) from their store

Someone should send the links and exact coupon abused items to target headquarters via email

This is the type of person that is making it hard for the honest q shoppers, like me, to do a simple legit coupon transaction

Is there a way to SAVE the youtube video before she pulls it? I am sure that someone will tell her that she is committing fraud and geting reported

( CAN SOMEONE RECORD THE VIDEO WITH THEIR PHONE OR CAMCORDER and save it???)

Has anyone given a "heads up" about this on the SD Drugstore/Grocery store forum.?????

They love updates on "extreme couponer" news stories.And I think they should be made aware,especially the drugstore forum posters who live in her area because who knows what other partners in crime cashiers she has at Wags/ CVS and the other stores she shops at.

This may not be on the evening news today but with enough SDer reports to her Target, this could be worthy of Target getting law enforcement involved and then maybe even the news. Smilie

Oh and Dh thinks that BOTH cashiers are in on it and probably getting kickbacks(notice the cashier pushing k1 as the other scanned the coupons- NEITHER reading the q's!!!!!!!!!)

If anyone can watch the video and list out the specifics (and take screenshots too), I say we all write a letter to corporate and include these facts. There is NOTHING wrong with using coupons to our best advantage (stacking, using on trial sizes, finding overages, etc), but I think we all agree this is ridiculous and not fair to the honest couponers. THIS is why we're being treated like criminals!

I'm not a big couponer, so a lot of the fraud went over my head (until other helpful posters explained by listing the actual coupons). But I caught the employee mistake. They are really dumb. They may have gotten away with it but this stuff catches up to employees very quickly in the retail world

And can I just say this video made steam come out of my ears! I get harrassed and made to feel like a thief b/c my $1 coupon says INF or the picture on the coupon looks different from the product I'm buying....but this lady steals thousands without a blink? GRRRRRRRR
