These days you can buy almost any product under the sun by making a trip to Target, or “Tar-jay” for more sophisticated shoppers. And although you can save a lot of money at the retailer, there are some tricks of the trade in getting the best discounts. Fortunately for anyone reading this, Yofreesamples has rounded up some of the best tricks to saving more at Target, and your life just become easier.
Target is known for its super coupon-friendliness, accepting both printed and online coupons, so don’t be afraid to bring your stash. You can even use up to four identical coupons per household, per day.
Target even lets you combine its store coupons with manufacturer’s coupons. In addition to the above-listed coupon policy, Target accepts one store with one manufacturer’s coupon per item. Coupons are available printed in the newspaper or by mail, as well as online at Coupons.Target.com.
You can even triple your savings at Target by incorporating mobile coupons into your savings strategy. Once you sign up for Target’s mobile offers, you’ll receive coupons and savings offers by text twice a month. To receive the savings, just have the cashier scan the bar code from your phone during checkout.
Get even more Target savings offers from the retailer’s Cartwheel app for Android or iOS. Select offers ranging from 5- to 50-percent off in the app, then have the cashier scan the barcode when you make your purchases. You can also select offers on your computer and print the coupons from cartwheel.target.com. Cartwheel coupons can be used on as many of four items per coupon, and they can even be stacked with store and manufacturer’s coupons.
Use your Target debit or credit card to pay for your purchase and receive an additional 5 percent off your total purchase.
Target provides customers an incentive to recycle with its Bring Your Own Bag program. Bring your own bags to carry out your purchases and receive 5 cents off per bag.
Target prints even more valuable coupons at the bottom of its sales receipts, so don’t forget to check those out before disposing of your tickets.
Combine Coupons with Sales
Target even accepts manufacturer’s coupons toward items that are on sale, so you can certainly stack your savings. Rather than spending hours comparing weekly coupons to Target’s sale items, however, just use Couponmom, which automatically searches and locates Target sales with current manufacturer’s coupons.
You can often find some deep discounts on Target’s clearance items. When you’re at the store, walk around the perimeter and look at the end-caps of each aisle for items discounted anywhere from 10- to 90-percent off. Shop for seasonal merchandise after holidays for even more discounts. Target marks down prices of holiday products by 50 percent the day after a holiday, 75 percent three days after, and 90 percent one week after.
Use manufacturer’s coupons toward the purchase of trail-sized items to get some great freebies. Just cut out all the newspaper coupons for new products and head over to Target’s trail-size aisle. As long as the coupon doesn’t have a size restriction, you can take advantage of freebies and sometimes even make a profit from your purchase.
Target offers even more incredible savings each day on the Daily Deals section of its website. Each offer is available online for one day only, and includes free shipping.
