Bring Reusable Bags

  • They don’t have to be a specific brand, but every time you use a bag other than the plastic ones Target provides, you’ll save $.05!
  • Throwing an item in your purse doesn’t count :(
  • If you are purchasing items with coupons that make the products free, the $.05 discount will help pay tax!
  • I keep a couple of these free reusable bags in my purse, just in case.

Shop with a Target Credit Card or Debit Card and Save 5% on EVERYTHING!

  • Target Debit Cards (REDCards) are awesome
  • They link directly to your checking account, and work just like your normal Debit Card
  • No interest, no fees, nothing extra!  Just automatically save 5%
  • To sign up, bring a check and a current form of ID in with you the next time you go shopping.
  • Sign up only takes about 90 seconds, while you are checking out

Shop with Target Store Coupons

  • Print Target Store Coupons at home
  • Target publishes inserts in the newspaper.  These are very regional, but watch for them!
  • Target also includes coupon in the Red Plum, Procter and Gamble or SmartSource (RP, PG, or SS) inserts on occasion.
  • Bring the Target Coupon Policy with you, just in case there are any questions (we recommend printing and keeping every store coupon policy with you)
  • You may use one Target Store coupon and one Manufacture Coupon on each item (unless made free by a BOGO coupon or sale)

Shop with Target Mobile Coupons

  • Sign up to receive Target Mobile Coupons!
  • Mobile coupons are Target Store Coupons that can be sent to your phone to be used for in-store purchases
  • These coupons can only be used only once but can be stacked with Manufacture Coupons, but not with additional Target Coupons
  • The terms on the coupon read “Limit one item or offer per coupon”
  • You will need to have an internet-capable phone in order to retrieve the coupons
    If you don’t have an internet capable phone, you can still sign up, and when they text you the web address, go there on your computer and print them so you can bring them with you
  • Normal text messaging & data charges will apply (depending upon your phone’s plan)
  • Mobile Coupons run for 2 weeks (usually), and they run from Saturday to Friday

Shop with Shopkick Mobile Coupons

  • Learn about Shopkick
  • Shopkick provides Target Store coupons
  • Shopkick coupons can be used along with manufacture coupons
  • Shopkick coupons must be activated on your web enabled phone, and used within 12 hours of activation

Price Match to Competitor Ads

  • Bring the Target Price Match Policy with you
  • Target store coupons are applied before the price match, so it’s usually one or the other.
  • Bring the entire store ad you are going to price match (you will have to leave it there).
  • The store you are trying to Price Match must be within the Market (no price matching from stores across the country :().

Target Gift Card Promotions

  • Target frequently offers Gift Card with qualified purchase
    Usually buy 2 or 3 of a specific item(s) and get a $5 Gift Card
  • Your total after coupons must be above the value of the gift card, but that total includes everything in your order
