  1. I think it’s great that you have successful shopping trips BUT because of people like you, the shelves are cleared when other couponers get to the stores. You should not be posting pictures like this, boasting about the tons of Swiffer boxes you got! You should be fair and let other shoppers have a chance on a great deal. I will no longer be using your website and will be passing along to my facebook groups. Good luck.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      The coupons have fine print for a reason. P&G are four per household per day, and Target has the exact same limit on a corporate level. Those are reasonable limits and I stuck to them. If you think that’s excessive, that’s fine with me. However, you should be writing to P&G and Target if that’s your issue.

      • You are putting the blame on Steve, because you can’t find any.. Not fair.. Look on some other sites and see them post 50 and then you can say they cleared the shelves!!
        When I miss a good deal, then I should have had my bootie to the store sooner!!

        • Clearly you are all gang banging me. The POINT is, you are still taking too much when you GO BACK for more. The coupon may say 4 per person, but if you go back MULTIPLE times in the same day to CLEAR the shelves, then you are just using a “LOOPHOLE” to CLEAR the shelves. It’s not right. It’s not fair to the other couponers who just want to get a great deal on TWO of the items. And especially those who don’t even USE coupons, but just need to get the PRODUCT. It’s amazing what has happened to the COUPON community this past year. I am thoroughly disgusted with cleared SHELVES on a MONDAY MORNING when the SALE just started on a SUNDAY. WOW!!!!!!!! Way to go!!!!!!

          • Steve Pinski says:

            Ummmm look at the posts. One trip was Sunday and the other was Monday. My store did not have cleared shelves on Monday morning, because it was about 12:30 pm when I walked in the store.

    • I think it’s fair game if you go back the next day and purchase more. I know I will. Great job!!!

      • Monica Bragg says:

        I completely agree with you.

        • Well I know, you would do the same thing if you came up to the isle and your store had some.. I know I will be!! I love love love this site, it has helped me build a stockpile for my whole family.. 🙂

    • Seriously? You think this is clearing the shelves? Sheesh. Sounds more like sour grapes to me. I think that Steve’s picture is reasonable and FAR from abuse. This site goes out of their way to be above board. I love this site and check it gazillion times a day!

  2. I personally love your site! It is always the first I check in the morning and the one I check when I run into a store! I think it’s fantastic that you had such great shopping trips! My Target was out of the dusters yesterday and still today, but I still walked out with dry refills yesterday and wet ones today! Still holding out hope for a restock later this week! Thanks for all you do to help not only my family stretch our budget, but others too!

  3. Great trip

  4. Can you receive more than one gift card in a transaction .Just started shopping at Target l also love your site.

  5. I so agree with Emily! This is the first site I check each morning and evening! I have learned so much and have gotten some of the best deals from reading your scenarios! Unfortunately, living in Northwest Indiana means never any luck for me on swiffer deals at target! There are always empty shelves no matter what day or time I go! That’s OK though, as I have amassed a nice stock pile for my family, friends, and nice people in general I so enjoy giving a bag of goodies to! My nieces (married as well as single) love getting their goody bags at Christmas and birthdays! But ahh I digress from excitement and gratefulness! Thank you again for all that you “people” do!

  6. Thank you for all you do and your hard efforts in posting successful shopping trips on this website!!!! Can anyone help me figure out deals in general? I really get confused about Target deals and their cartwheels and gift cards and how this all works together. Maybe I need to organize my coupons differently. Again, thank you!!!!
