Target 5/5 (Steve) – PROFIT $7.99 on $60.19 of Merchandise (113.3% Saved)


target-050515UPDATE: We’ve had some tips that have suggested that this Huggies Catalina is possibly partially triggered by the Playtex purchase. Obviously, it is still a mystery at this point.

I had an AMAZING trip to Target last night. I was expecting a small moneymaker on Huggies Wipes but then a HUGE Catalina coupon popped out with my receipt. I also scored FREE Airborne, Cheap Gevalia Iced Coffee and MONEYMAKER Playtex Combo Packs.

If you’re thinking of doing the Huggies deal, make sure you read my whole post I wrote previously. Not all combinations of wipes are producing the Catalina.

Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

SIX PLAYTEX SPORT COMBO PACKS, regular price $6.99
Get a $5 Target Gift Card for every three purchased
Get a $10 Target Gift Card for buying $40 of Beauty/Personal Care with in-ad store coupon
Used the in-ad store coupon for the $10 gift card promo
and used three BOGO Playtex Sport Pads, Liners or Combo Packs *max value $7.99; excludes 20 ct liners* printable manufacturer’s coupon (no longer available to print; the register automatically deducted the $7.99 max value for each one)
Price at Register: $17.97, but received two $5 Target Gift Cards and one $10 Target Gift Card
***Note: The register claimed I had not met the purchase requirement…to which I quipped, “Do you guys sell any ‘care’ that is more ‘personal’ than this stuff?” The male cashier and his male manager quickly agreed and gave me the gift card LOL!

Get $3 cashback from Ibotta when you buy three UNIQUE select Kimberly-Clark products (including Huggies)
Get $7 Catalina coupon when you buy this unique combination of Huggies products (unadvertised)
Use one $2.50/2 Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers or Baby Wipes Target mobile store coupon (text OFFERS to 827438) – exp 5/13
and use the 5% OFF Huggies Wipes Target Cartwheel Offer (exp 5/16; deducted $0.21)
and used three $0.50/1 Huggies Wipes 32 ct or larger printable manufacturer’s coupons (preclipped)
Price at Register: $2.12, but received $3 cashback from Ibotta and surprise $7 Catalina coupon

FOUR AIRBORNE IMMUNE SUPPLEMENTS, regular price $0.99 (sold in travel/trial area)
Used four $1/1 Airborne coupons *no size restrictions*, 3/29 SS newspaper insert

FOUR GEVALIA ICED COFFEE, regular price $1.99
Used the 25% OFF Gevalia Iced Coffee Target Cartwheel Offer (deducted $2)
and used four $1/1 Gevalia Coffee Product printable manufacturer’s coupons (preclipped)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $1.96 (or 49 cents each!)

I was also going to score some MONEYMAKER Purina Purpose Cat Litter with some old $10/2 coupons I have, but they were out of stock. Nevertheless, it was still a pretty awesome trip!

    Steve, I think the $7 Catalina was triggered by the Playtex not the wipes. I did the Playtex deal on Monday and got the $7 Catalina and it said “Thanks from Huggies”. I think Playtex is from the same company. I believe we only got $7 bc of the BOGO coupons. The deal is 2 products=$5, 3 products=$7, and 4 products =$10.

    • Steve Pinski says:


      • I did almost the same trip yesterday: 6 Playtex and 2 wipes and 1 pull-ups (needed those) so I got $5 catalina so I do not think it was for Playtex because the number of Playtex I bought is the same 6 but wipes only 2.

  2. Great haul, what is the dpci for the Playtex combo?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Here’s what I bought…
      Four combos of 28 tampons/20 liners UPC# 0-78300-00719-7
      Two combons of 18 tampons/14 pads UPC# 0-78300-00720-3

  3. Steve, did you receive $3 Ibotta cashback? The deal says 3 different products, didn’t know if different number of wipes for same product counts as 2 different products. Thanks

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Yes, I got the Ibotta cashback. I submitted it last night and was credited the $3 within an hour 🙂

  4. Tammie says:

    So Playtex by itself did not trigger a Catalina?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I do not know. I didn’t even know about the Catalina. It was a surprise. Everything was in one transaction.

      • I only bought the 6 Playtex on Sunday and Received the $7 Catalina. Did it again in another city and received the $7 Catalina again. So…………Just Maybe.

  5. Nicole says:

    I went to target this morning and lucky they were restocking. I bought 4 packs of the huggies natural care wipes 56ct. I received a $10 catalina coupon

  6. Lauren says:

    I bought the exact same combo of 3 packs of wipes except the soft pack wipes (which was still a 56 count) had a slightly different ID number. It did not produce a catalina. But I did get the ibotta rebate. Still a slight moneymaker

  7. Mischelle says:

    Yesterday I did the Playtex and the Huggies transaction’s and didn’t receive the Catalina.

    • Monica Bragg says:

      That’s two folks that have reported that now so they must have turned the catalina off.

  8. Melissa Rogers says:

    I purchased 3 boxes of U Kotex tampons and received a $5 catalina to use in next trip, it also said thanks from huggies. I did not have any huggies items in that transaction.

  9. Melissa Rogers says:

    Oh and my next transaction was 2 boxes of Huggies diapers, 2 packs of wipes and I did not receive a catalina. I didnt use the catalina from first transaction either.

  10. It is a little crazy but my ibotta $3 off rebate reset 3rd time…

    • Monica Bragg says:

      Oh wow!

    • Wayland P says:

      I tend to find they show up again every two to three days. Usually after the third time they seem to be gone, but lately, I think a couple have come back more often than that. I wasn’t paying that close attention though to be sure.

  11. How do you use 3 of the BOGO Tampax printable coupons if you are only allowed to print 2 of them?

    • Monica Bragg says:

      You can print two from each computer or device. Steve has several computers in his house. Not only that but when the coupon came out it reset a couple days later and we were able to get additional prints from the same device.

  12. alison says:

    I bought 6 x Playtex (3 x $3.99 boxes and $3 x $6.99 ones) and 2 x Huggies (56 ct) on Monday and got a $10 Catalina, so my guess is they are random. It also wasn’t easy when I tried to redeem the Catalina. They were very confused about it, since it scanned as a manufacturer’s, but one of the cashiers agreed that Catalina ones are usually Target coupons. I bought 1 box of wipes unscented, 1 box of scented wipes and since they were both over 300ct I was able to use the $3 off mq I printed a while ago. I also bought a travel size Huggies. I used a 50c off and also the $10 Catalina. I paid $5.50 and got $3 from Ibotta.
