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

Is anyone still able to print extra coupons using a different admin account/profile on the same computer? I tried it on two different profiles on the Target website and both times it said I've reached my max print limit. I wonder if this is what they were working on over the weekend?
I just tried to print 2 Dora DVD's that I had already printed from another User Account and they did not show up. I think they did fix this little option. Frown

Sorry what does MQ stand for? I can't find any online Skippy printables...
MQ = Manufacturer's coupon
TQ = Target store coupon.

You can use 1 MQ and 1 TQ per item at Target.

I'm not aware of any Skippy printables.

Ditto! Just worked for me too.

Wanted to go to T today to do some "coupon recon" and look at the new GC deals, but didn't make it. I hate when I plan a shopping trip and something comes up to ruin it! Mad
Oh well.....maybe tomorrow.

Between pages 48 and 49 of the October 2010 Woman's Day magazine:
There is a mini coupon booklet! I got our magazine today in the mail.

This magazine is great, but crazy at the same time. So much of their funds seem to go to ads, yet there aren't many coupons at all. They've got huge full page ads every other page. It's a little excessive.

The 5 Qs in the "booklet" are:
1) Bagel Bites = 1$/1 = Exp. 4/30/11 (plenty of time for a possible TQ stack)
2) Pledge Furniture Care products = $1.50/2 = Exp. 11/30/10
3) Pledge Multi Surface product = $0.75/1 = Exp. 11/30/10
4) Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair = $0.75/1 = Exp. 11/30/10
ETA: There's a TQ on Target [Target.com] for the Pet Hair Sweeper = $2/1 = Exp. 10/16/10
I clicked "Household" on the left and it was at the bottom of that first page! (stack would = $2.75 off 1.)
5) Sara Lee pre-sliced meat = 1$/1 = Exp.12/31/10 (states that it cannot be combined with any other offer)


Also, At the back of the magazine they had an ad for Keri lotion. It just tells the reader to go to http://kerilotion.com/savings_from_keri.html to get "savings". There you'll find "$1.00 off your next lotion purchase" Q.

Edited to change: Now that I've found the Pledge TQ, I'm certain it's the right forum. Yahoo!

I hope it helps at least someone. Take care! Smilie

Dumb question...can I sign up for a registry...and get the gift...even if I had my baby in April? I never thought to sign up for things like that since it was my second child...but could have used a lot of the qs these past few months!
Yes! you can still sign up for a registry. They don't make you take a pregnancy test to see if your really pregnant. I believe you can sign up online first and then go to the store to get the gift.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in, but they /can/ be used at Target. laugh out loud
Besides, it's the only "deal" forum I read besides Freebies!

Yes, you can sign up online and get the bag. i signed up online and got some email or on my registry said to go in and get my bag. I thought it'd be useless so was going to forget about it but now I will go and get it!

Also, some people have their showers after the baby is born. Sometimes it just works out that way.

Has anyone done the sobe deal recently? Do we still have the same beepers vs. non-beepers?
Yes, I do the sobe deal regularly (4 to 6 at a time now in case I get asked about the 2 per computer limit since I have 3 computers...lol) and still have beepers (but easy K1). I think I have it narrowed down to the Black Cherry Dragon Fruit 0 cal (purple cap) and or the Black and Blue 0 cal. I have no clue about the non 0 flavors because Im hooked on the no cal.

Feel free to post a link to this in the Wiki (I really don't want to type it out again Big Grin )

A few things about Target and their pricing policy.

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 [I]"Additional Mark-Down"[/I] 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)
Description
Price
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.

So here is about 6 months of pricing training and some flow team training in one post. Hope this helps people!

It says you will get a $10 rewards card, but it doesn't say what kind of card.
