Welcome to the new Target & Super Target deals thread!
Please read this post and the 2 wikis before posting and/or asking questions. Thanks!
Click here to create a personal sticky which will stick this thread to the top of the forum.
RECENT NOTES FROM SLICKDEALS MODS:
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.
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.
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.

Quote :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:
Thanks for shopping with us. We'll see you again soon at Target.
Target Guest Relations
Quote :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.

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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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
- 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).

- HTH = Hope That Helps
- INF = Item Not Found. Usually refers to an item that has been on clearance and has been salvaged.

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.
New to couponing? Please read hawaiiandawn's thread - New Q Shoppers, Don't be Scared! You Can Do This!!
New to the thread? Please read:
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. 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. 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. My skin has never looked so smooth (and tomatoey) and my utility bills have never been so high. (I'm kidding, I'm kidding.. )
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.

What does DPCI stand for?
DPCI stands for DePartment, Class, Item. it's Target's proprietary SKU # system for inventory control. the format is xxx xx xxxx and can be found on the shelf tag, on the price scanner when you scan a bar code and on the left side of your receipt.
Is there any order i should hand over my q's in?
item not found = computer cannot do a match because:
1-coupons coded x xxxxx xxx00 x beep at all stores
2-coupons coded x xxxxx xxx01 x beep at target, but not at kmart
3-short barcode x xxxxxx x
4-mfr code is off by a zero
ex. aveeno q mfr: 5 08137 xxxxx x, product mfr code: 8137 xxxxxx x. also clean and clear.
5-family code doesn't match ex.most nexxus products
Re: Gift Card Deals YMMV reportedly no longer a problem 9/29/12
Your order total cannot be reduced by MQs by TWICE the value of gift cards earned. So you need additional items in the order.
For instance, if you earn a $5 Gift card from Glade, your order total cannot drop below $10 with MQs. Earn 2 x $5 Gift cards and your order total cannot drop below $20 with MQs. So on and so forth.
Basically, the registers aren't allowing you to "make money" on GC offers anymore.
Any purchase that includes a gift card deal must have an end total of at least twice the value of earned gift cards. Say you do one Glade deal and one Curel deal - your end total, after all coupons, must be at least $20 because you earned two $5 gift cards. The workarounds for this are to either do missed coupons at guest services, or add an item to your order and have it voided after coupons have been scanned, or purchase a Visa/AmEx gift card (there are fees attached to these).
How can i print multiples of coupons from target.com/e-centives?
UPDATE: Reported only working on mq's at target.com
more than 2 prints of all target Q's are easy, no pdf or mpp needed!
in windows xp, got to
control panel->useraccounts->create a new account->enter a name for the account->then make sure "computer administrator" is checked, and then click "create account"
log onto that account, go print two more of the coupons you want.
log off that account back to your original, then delete account, and create another.
takes about 90 seconds, and is easier if you create about 4 accounts, print 4x2 coupons, then delete and re-create the 4 accounts.
to delete accounts: log back into Admin account, right click my computer - Manage - System Tools - Local users and Groups - Users - Select User - Delete!
Why are some items are tagged "as is" instead of clearance?
They are items that were received in to the store but are not stocked in that particular store. It happens occasionally.
What happens to target salvage and food?
*The Target salvage program keeps returned or damaged merchandise and excess new clearance merchandise out of landfills by selling it to local Goodwills and other non-profits at a greatly reduced rate. The salvage program has diverted 93 million pounds of unsaleable merchandise from the waste stream in 2004.*
Target sells to salvage companies such as-
*A company-wide program of food donation has been undertaken to reduce food waste and donate this food to people in need. Target donated over 1,328,000 pounds of food through the Second Harvest Food Network in 2004, diverting it from the waste stream.*
*Food Donation Policy
Target identifies certain perishable and non-perishable food items that do not meet our
merchandising standards, but are still edible. These items are donated to a Feeding America Food Bank. This policy applies to price change salvage product and defective/damaged red label product. It does not apply to vendor serviced product.
View a list of approved Food Donations.
Due to FDA regulations Target does not salvage food. This includes food from all categories: red label damaged/returned, price change seasonal salvage and price change clearance salvage.*

D. Price Match FAQ's
First, Target is split into 2 sections. Hardlines and Softlines.
Softlines: All clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories, and infant items
Hardlines: Everything else
Softlines have set days for mark-downs. Hardlines do not.
At my store, the softline schedule is:
Monday - Boys, Girls, and Infants (the non-clothes infants (aka infant gondolas) may or may not go down on this day, a majority of the items will, but can go down on different days).
Tuesday - Ready To Wear (aka Womens, Juniors, and Plus)
Wednesday - Mens
Thursday - Lingerie, Hosiery, Women's Active Wear, and Shoes
Friday - Jewelry, Purses, Accessories
The way pricing works (this will explain how Hardlines is marked down): The pricing team prints out the labels for the day, these are small price increases and "Price Cuts" (not to be confused with "Temporary Price Cuts" which have an end date).
Then, the pricing team goes to the pricing section of the PDA, and does "todays load". It gives them a section, aisle, and location of the mark-down. If it is a price cut, the PDA will tell them to scan the label, if it is going on mark-down, it will tell them to scan the item to "activate".
It is normal to have a 1,000 price changes in a day for the pricing team to do (which is usually 2-3 people). Many of these price changes you won't ever notice. For example, one time I had to mark nail polish up a penny. That is 20+ labels to scan and put up. I'm pretty sure it cost more for the pricing teams salary than they would make on the item.
There are 3 categories of clearance. First, Further, and Final. First is usually 30%, except HBA (Health & Beauty Aids) and sometimes Grocery, which can start at 15%. Further, is 50% (and 30% for those that started at 15%). Final is 75%.
Mark downs are usually 2 weeks between markdowns, but may go faster toward the end. It is general guideline, not a rule. All mark-downs come from corporate, and the store has no control over when an item is marked down or up. The only exceptions are "Additional Markdowns" (see below) and "Repackage" items. But even those items, the PDA gives the price, we just print out the label.
After 75%, most items are salvaged, though certain items can be salvaged sooner, usually higher end products, such as Dyson and Flip cameras. When an items is salvaged, it is marked out of the system, and taken to Receiving, put in a Salvage box, which the Receiving clerk checks against the salvage report, and most times is sent to GoodWill or a Reverse Logistics company that pays pennies on the pound for the salvaged items.
The Pricing Team Lead may decide to take an "Additional Mark-Down" on some items that were supposed to go salvage. For instance, if there is a lot of an item because it missed mark-down, was mis-stocked, or in the backroom, an additional may be done. An additional will most times be 85%, unless the item was salvaged at 50%, the additional would be 75%. An Additional Mark-Down requires the approval of the Pricing Team Lead or an LOD, or in some instances, both, so not "any" employee can do it for you.
There is also two kinds of Clearance. Ticketed and Non-Ticketed.
Non-Ticketed is clearance that is usually seasonal, and follows an approximately 10-day markdown schedule. Non-ticketed is obviously not ticketed, and will have Red with White Lettering signs that state "mark-down taken at register". Non-ticketed will start at 30%, 50%, 75%, then 90%. Non-ticketed is also done in the computer, so it will be active within a few hours of opening.
Ticketed- obviously has red & white stickers on them, and will have (if any) signs up that are White w/ Red Lettering that states "prices as marked". Ticketed items are marked down throughout the day.
*These signs may be put up in front of the wrong things, the Pricing Team may have new people or people helping that do not know the difference.
Hardlines clearance does follow a little of a schedule, but it is not absolute. A majority of Electronics will get marked down on Mondays, HBA on Fridays, ect.. There is a schedule in the Wiki that is pretty close, but Hardlines items can go at any time. The days/schedule is usually when the clearance endcaps are scanned and further and final markdowns are done. There is not a set day the pricing team has for this, it is determined that day if an endcap in a certain area is required to be scanned or not.
As for items not marked or found for salvage. At the end of each Pricing Day the un-found items that are still in the PDA are "activated". That is why you may find an item that is not marked, but scans the clearance price, or a clearance item that scans at a lower price than ticketed. Even if 1 item is found, but there are 2 other in the wrong place, once that first one is scanned, it activates that price for the rest of the items with that DPCI.
Some other things that may help you with shopping with Target.
Have you ever wondered what the location (example) A35(1)3-5-5 means?
A - the section of the store
35 - the aisle
(1) - the start of the location
3 - the section of gondola in the aisle
5 - how many shelves up from the floor it is
5 - the spaces over that the item is
Section of the store- pretty self-explanatory Most aisles will have a letter and a number at the start and end of the aisle.
The aisle - Starts with 1 toward the front of the store in each section, and goes on.
The start of the location, let's take the eye car aisle, for example. The first section of this aisle is pegs with glasses hanging on it. The next 3 gondolas are shelves 5 rows high with contact solution and eye drops. The next 2 gondolas are only 4 shelves high with diabetes health care. For each new kind of gondola, the section numbers will start at 1 again. So the glasses will be on A6(1), the contact solution and eye drops would start at A6(2), and the Diabetes care would be A6(2). This helps understand the next numbers. Other location numbers are (0) - which means it's an endcap, and (99) - which means it's a sidecap. For endcaps, the Odd number is on the main aisle, and the Even number is the "back" endcap (where the clearance endcaps are). A co-worker once told me "It's odd that the even are on the back", a little mnemonics device to help me remember.
The section of the gondola in the aisle. There are usually 6 gondolas in an aisle. You can see the separation of the shelves going down the aisle. The numbers start at 1 from the main aisle. So, A may start at 1 and go <-- and B will start at 1 and go -->
The number of shelves up from the bottom. If the item is hanging, it may have a P1, P2, P3, ect.. or an F1, F2, F3, ect.. Otherwise, it is the standard 1, 2, 3, 4, ect..
The spaces an item is over on that gondola.
If you look at the label picture below, you will see this (from the top-down)
DPCI (DePt Class Item)
Location (the shelf label will only include the last three location numbers, it assumes you already know which aisle you are in).
The number next to the location is how many items will be facing. In the example: *01 means that it will have 1 row, and the * means it has multiple locations at the time the shelf label was made. The * could mean that it is simply below and above (like printer paper is) or it could be on an endcap, or in this case, the front of the store.
The number under that is the last of the UPC. Most times they will match up, but sometimes they do, because the manufacturer may have made a different UPC for a bonus pack, new packaging, ect.. but Target still keeps the same DPCI.
