target-0517We had a great trip to Target today. Our store had the 4/$10 pricing on the Pepsi brand 12-packs, plus where I live Dr. Pepper is bottled by Pepsi and included in sales of Pepsi products. The Dr. Pepper was in the endcap display, so I confidently grabbed a few and tossed them in the carts.

Stephanie and I both did a transaction with eight 12-packs. However, the register was deducting the savings for the promotion rather oddly. It was ringing them up for $2.99 each and then crediting a $1.97 discount on every four purchased. That caused a bit of a problem, because both of our transactions were two pennies shy of the $20. Luckily, our cashier had rung up a few people today already and was aware of the problem, so they just manually gave us the $5 gift cards on each transaction after scanning the in-ad store coupon.

    The Dr. Pepper wasn’t included here in Hollywood, Fl. I did notice though that in my Savingstar one or many offer for Dixie products that a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper gives you a “boost” of $5 towards the total….don’t know if it varies by account.

  2. I went to target today to bug Playtex and use my huggies catalinas from earlier this month, but they said those are good only on huggies products! is it right ? (and it’s one per day per customer even on huggies products)
