Welcome to the new Target & Super Target deals thread!


Please read this post and the wiki before posting and/or asking questions. Thanks!

NOTE FROM SLICKDEALS (8/25/10):
We have been told to not distribute pre-generated coupons; most are available at coupons.target.com.

Quote from thelnel52 View Post :
Everyone-

Please don't post links to pre-generated coupons. We've been told by Target that it's against their rules. Most coupons are available at coupons.target.com- please go there to get them.

Thank you

Please keep all OT and chit chat to a minimum. For anything that is not deal-related, please join us here at the Target Chit Chat thread, in the ever-popular SD Lounge for lighthearted chit chat that may or may not be related to Target.

Please remember that this is a minimal OT thread, meaning discussions cannot derail the thread.

Thank you



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
Target Guest Relations
Target Coupon Resources

Target Coupons and Attachments through the PAPER CLIP - Current Thread PaperClip

Target Coupon Generators
ALL current Target Web Coupons have this restriction, "Limit one offer per TRANSACTION."

Generators are no longer available as "All currently available Target coupons were released with printing restrictions on them. Therefore, we can not host them here." Please refer to wiki for MPPs hosted off-site.

Target Mobile Coupons
Sign up here [target.com]

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.

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.

Price Mistake:

7 oz Nescafe Taster's Choice Ground Coffee
- Decaffeniated Orginal Blend
Reg Price: $6.99
Shelf Tag: .15 cents
Save $6
DPCI: 231-10-1142
Color of container: Green

The shelf tag is all eff'd up. It clearly reads 15 cents as the price, but says Save $6. $6 + .15 = $6.15 not $6.99. Scans $6.49 though.

If you remember back to the playtex straw cup mis-mark, you kow what to do.
Found same shelftag at the Shawnee Supertarget Saturday, rang up 6.49 but cashier price modified it just because I said so laugh out loud

Since the wikis are so long and I am not sure everyone reads those more than once.

I wanted to post this in the thread as well so that everyone has a better chance of seeing the message.


Hi,
We all appreciate the hard work you do in helping each other save money. I have a request/new rule that will will need to be implemented in threads such as this from now on.

When you make a post you need to avoid doing a copy and paste of the work of someone else. It is stealing to copy and paste things directly from other sites such as the TT site.

We have been contacted by them and asked nicely to stop doing that.

If you see good coupons or deals just we love to have you share them with us, just be sure to rewrite them before posting.

We appreciate your help in this matter.

Thanks,
Schooby

Was at Target yesterday and saw a lot of swimming gears on clearance. I think it was around 30% off. Keep an eye out if you are in need of those.
