NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

We had a GREAT trip to Target today! We made a huge score on Iams Dry Dog Food, plus we picked up cheap sponges, free lemonade mix and a Totino’s Pizza. Both the roommate and I did a transaction. Because I thought we MIGHT get a little overage from the Iams deal if we kept the subtotal higher than the $5 gift card, I went along with her Totino’s Pizza request, even though we didn’t have a coupon. I was right…$0.82 profit on each pair of 15.5 lb bags (not including sales tax) and no beeps on the Iams coupons!

  1. I did this deal in the morning and it went smoothly using self checkout. I went in the evening towards closing time to repeat the deal, got the exact same bags I did in the morning and when the cashier scanned the coupons, only the Target coupons scanned. The manufacturer coupons clipped from the paper beeped and said, no matching items on the screen. The manager on duty came over and said, you can’t use the $5/$30, along with the $5 Target coupons and the manufacturer coupons. She said, we can only take the 2 Target coupons. I told her I was in right after they opened and the exact same coupons scanned just fine. I told her the Target coupons were not the problem, it had to be something in the system. I then had her remove all the items and coupons and scan only 1 bag of dog food and 1 manufacturer coupon from the paper and it still beeped. Even though it was an obvious match to the coupon. I even had the same item that was pictured on the coupon. She said there was nothing they could do and they could not enter the coupon if the register didn’t scan it. I sure don’t know how the exact same coupons worked in the morning, and not in the evening. Maybe the self checkout registers have different software than the cashier manned registers? Anyone else have this problem?

      I used a regular cashier. My transaction was around 6 pm Eastern time.

  2. I did this deal twice and both times all of the coupons went through just fine. Thank you for another amazing deal Steve. You are the best!

  3. At Target in Holland Michigan, you can’t use coupons and get the $5 Target gift card, so I’ve kind of stopped shopping there.

  4. Linda Neagle says:

    Is there a code we can text to Target to get their $5 coupon

    • Maureen says:

      No. When a Target coupon is in the Red Plum or Smartsource Sunday inserts, there is no text code to get a mobile version of the coupon. You need the paper coupon from the insert.

      When a Target coupon is in the Target weekly ad, you can get a mobile version because the text number is printed on the coupon.
