A Tale of Two Targets

photo 2.JPGPicked up the four GE LED light bulbs $7.99 each) and two boxes of Lipton green tea ($1.07 each). Total after coupons (mfr & Target) and Cartwheel (15%) was $10.29 – paid with two $5 gift cards and 29¢ on my REDcard…got back two $5 gift cards.  Click here to go to the Target coupons page.

photo 1.JPGYou can either run the $5 gift card with the purchase of five $2.99 Febreze and Glade products using the new Glade printables and the $1.50/2 Febreze  coupon from 10/26 P&G or use them on the clearance products at $1.48 each.  There is also a $1/3 Glade Products Target coupon.  Here’s the link to all the new Glade coupons.  Click here for the Target coupons page.  I chose the cheaper path…

I used these $3/2 Lipton Tea Product and this $1 Lipton Tea Product coupons on the $1.07 green teas because they were out of the black tea.  Either one is a moneymaker, if your store has these prices (not all are the same).


Target – free tea & cheap Dove (Dove is today only)

photo.JPGThe Dove transaction combines the new $5 gift card with the BOGO coupons from 11/2 which expire today, the 16th.  If you are one of the lucky ones whose Target accepts expired coupons, then you can run this all week.  I ran two transactions of four shampoos/conditioners and four deodorants.  My subtotal for each transaction (before REDcard and bag credit) was $13.42 – got back two $5 gift cards.  You could run this with only the 2+2, but if your store limits, the 4+4 uses four coupons.


Print this $3/2 Lipton Tea Product and this $1 Lipton Tea Product for either FREE or a few pennies or a moneymaker tea at Target. The green tea is the usual shelf price, while the black tea sale goes through the 22nd.  These Lipton coupons are not the ones from last week, so if you printed earlier, rinse and repeat.  Note that this wording excludes bottled tea…

The “yes, I could have done better” Target trip

photo.JPGI wanted to see if these clearance Glade sprays ($1.48) triggered the $5 gift card when I bought five – no. At this point I could have just put back a couple and used the overage from the EAS coupons for free spray, but I went and ran two transaction with five spray cans each and four EAS powders – OOP was $3.22 on each. Check out the clearance and various other end caps throughout the store because I found both Febreze and Glade products all over the place. At least with the Febreze spray you can use the $1.50/2! These scents were different than Febreze (Sage & Thyme Market?!), so I don’t mind spending a few bucks here and there…
