my Target “I woulda spent less without cookies” trip

photo.JPGBut I love Pepperidge Farm cookies! sigh… here’s the breakdown on my $42 (after tax) purchase:

8 Head and Shoulders (buy 4 get $5 gift card) $39.92 less 4 $5/2 July P&G coupons.
8 Suave shampoo & conditioner (buy 4 get $5 gift card) $23.12 less 4 $3/2 6/21 rp coupons
5 Pepperidge Farm and Tim Tam cookies (buy 5 get $5 gift card) $14.45…no coupons

So spent $42 and got $25 in gift cards.  I can live with it

Target price cut on Whynter Eco-Friendly portable AC models


If you’re in an older home and can’t install central air and you have casement windows … you’re pretty much SOL for air conditioning!  Or if you’re renting in an older building with the same restrictions, Target has a temporary price cut on the Whynter line of Eco-Friendly portable AC units – some are combo AC/Heat models as well!  These are available online only.

Target TP run (or would that be runs)

photo.JPGSix packs (2 transactions due to Cartwheel’s Limit 4 per transaction, Limit 6 transactions per day rule).  When the $5 gift card didn’t appear, I showed the site on my phone and supervisor said they could offer me $5 off for each set of two but weren’t able to generate gift cards – works for me! And if you think I’ve been buying a lot of toilet paper lately…you’d be right

The Purina Beyond cat food was on an endcap for only $4.24…I say only because the shelf price is $16.99 (I checked!); no current coupons or Cartwheel.

.15 cents a roll Cottonelle (or less) – today only

There is a 75¢ coupon on the Cottonelle site, but you have to register (you can print 2);  also see an Ibotta offer.

You can either pick up while you’re shopping or order online and choose store pickup.  If you use store pickup, you’ll have to have Guest Services cancel your order and repurchase using the Cartwheel barcode – this is a good idea if you think the store will sell out before you get there.  The Cartwheel expires today, so you can’t go tomorrow.

Target has a 50% off Cottonelle bath tissue 9-pack mega roll plus a $5 gift card when you buy two!  These mega rolls are great – 4 single rolls in one!  Buy two packs of Cottonelle ULTRA or Cottonelle Clean Care for $10.99 each and you’ll pay $5.99 after gift card and Cartwheel!  Use the two coupons and it’s $1.50 less…

Target shopping for MM shampoo + gum!

photo.JPGCurrent Target promotion gives you a $5 gift card when you buy four Suave products (also Dove, etc., but the Suave is the best).  These Gold Professional shampoos and conditioners are $2.54, so buy four, use two $3/2 coupons from 6/21rp and you’ll be paying $4.16 plus high tax for each set of four and getting back a $5 gift card (I paid $4.94 in total).  Use your REDcard and it’s 5% less.

Trident gum is 97¢ shelf price.  Stack the 50% off on Cartwheel with the $1/3 coupon from 6/28S and your gum is now 15¢ a pack!  If you don’t want to bother with Cartwheel and/or the Target coupon limit, Walgreens has Trident for 3/$2, use the $1 coupon and you’ll pay 33¢ a pack, still pretty cheap.

cheap Charmin next week – even cheaper this week (new coupon!)

Screenshot-2015-06-25-at-8.23.35-PMStarting Sunday, 6/28, you’ll get a $10 Target gift card wyb 3 select P&G products. Both Ultra Soft Charmin Mega Plus 12 pack and Charmin Double Plus 24 pack are part of this promotion as is the Ultra Strong varieties.

However, Sunday the price shoots back up to $12.99. I prefer to shop this week during the B3G1 promotion when the price is only $9.99!  You’ll pay about $6.74 per pack ($9.99 x 3 = $29.97 less $3 in printables ÷ 4 = $6.74 or 5% less with REDcard).  I’m going to order and choose store pickup so I can “cancel” and still use my coupons.

75¢ off One Charmin Ultra Soft or Strong coupon makes it that much better. But frankly, it’s still a better deal this week with coupons and pickup or no coupons and delivery.

Shout out the news – it’s cheap @ Target!


Print out this $1 Any Shout Product coupon and run to Target where you can combine a sale (B3G1), coupons and 10% Cartwheel for some very cheap product – 68¢ a bottle!

photo.JPGAnd if you’re running the Head & Shoulders deal this week – but either need more manly stuff or you’re running out of coupons – try adding four Old Spice shampoos to four Head & Shoulders and use this $1 Old Spice printable.  Each product earns you the $5 gift card when you purchase four.  You’ll pay $19.96 for the H&S + $15.96 for the Old Spice, less $10 in coupons, less $10 gift card and two $5 gift cards.  Bottom line is $5.92 for all eight products.

Note:  Your prices might be slightly higher or lower.  Each Target around me has the H&S for $4.99, but I keep seeing pix from other parts of the country with $4.49 showing.  boo!

Head & Shoulders under a buck!

photo.JPGCombine coupons with the current Target gift card promotions and you’ll pay under $1 a bottle!  Here’s how:

8 bottles of Head & Shoulders @ $4.99 each = $39.92
Use four $3/2 coupons from June P&G = $27.92
Get one $10 Target gift card with current promotion = $17.92
Get one $5 gift for every 4 bottles purchased = $7.92 = 99¢ a bottle
Use REDcard and save 40¢ = $7.52/8 = 94¢ a bottle!  IL classifies this as low tax so it’s not really a factor here.

If you need more coupons for the Target promo, text BEAUTY10 to 827438 and/or BEAUTY5 to 827438.

cheap Olay Pro-X cleansers…as promised

unnamedTarget has the Olay Pro-X cleanser on for $10.19 – shelf tag in your local store will read $17.99! I’ve always known about the range of prices in different stores, but lately these .com vs store price spreads are just insane!

Buy four Olay Pro-X cleansers at $10.19 each.  Use promo code BEAUTY10 at checkout and you’ll receive the $10 gift card and $5 gift cards for each product, for a total of $30!  There’s a $2 printable on any Pro-X item, but the only way to use it is to pick store pickup, then cancel the order at Guest Services and rering.  Given the issues Target has been experiencing the past couple of days with their registers, it’s up to you.  It’s also possible that the store registers won’t show the $5 gift card for each item – strange days, indeed.  Without coupons you’ll pay $10.76 plus tax or $2.69 a tube.  With them, the price drops down to 69¢ each.  Either way, order online to make sure it’s available!

Don’t forget, your REDcard will take off 5% more!
