I'm new when it comes to shopping at Target with coupons and I'm JUST learning so awesome tips about them that I didn't know about. I wanted to go ahead and pass what I learned along to you all so you can also make the most out of your trips there!


* Did you know... that if you purchased and item and within 14 days that same item is put on sale you can bring in your receipt and get refunded the difference of the item? You don't have to bring in the item with you either, just the receipt to customer care!


* Make sure to always hand over all your manufacturer coupons first–before Target store coupons. This technique will minimize coupon beepage.


* To read a Target clearance Sticker... look at the top right corner. There will be a number printed very small. This number indicates the percentage of the markdown. So if you see a 30 it's 30% off the original price, 50 is 50% off the original price, etc.

Also, if the "now" price (i.e. on this photo $10.48) shows a last digit of a "6" or an "8" then they have more mark downs to go. If it has a final number of a "4" then it's at it's lowest markdown. Any other numbers it's just a guess as to what's going to happen. So looking at the above photo it will be marked down again.


Another thing about the clearance... Target keeps marking their items down until their gone. If the price isn't low enough for you now, check back in 2 weeks! They do their mark downs every 2 weeks! In fact, they have a little schedule they follow as to what they mark down on what day of the week:


MONDAY-Baby Items
-Children's Clothing
-Office Supplies


-Home Decor
-Women's Clothing
-Domestic Items


-Healthy & Beauty
-Men's Clothing
-Garden Items


-Sporting Goods


-Home Improvement


* Always carry a copy of the Target coupon policy when shopping. Although everything will most likely be fine, if you need to dispute something, it'll be best to do so with the proof right there in your hand!

* Use the scanner. Sometimes the clearance team misses an item that should have been re-stickered with a lower price. If it is something you want, always check the price with a scanner. Also, scan things that are one of a kind. These things may be returns from previous seasons that have been clearanced out. You may be surprised!

* Don’t judge the clearance by its sign. If you keep on walking because the clearance sign only reads 15% off, you may be missing out.  The fine print says 15% OR MORE and you’ll often see steeper markdowns upon closer inspection, intermingled with the 15% off goodies.

* Check out the REDcard. Target introduced its REDcard in fall 2010. Cardholders will receive 5% off when they use the Target REDcard debit card, or 5% cash back with the Target REDcard credit card. A word to the wise: use credit responsibly. Only apply if you can pay your balance in full at the end of the month, otherwise you’re really not saving any money.You can apply for the REDcard at a Target store or by mail.Details here.

* Take advantage of Target’s price matching policy. If you find an item in a competitor’s ad, bring it to Target and they’ll match the advertised price. The competitor’s ad must be local and current, and the product must be the identical item, brand name, quantity and model number. 

* BYOB (bring your own bag). For each of your own reusable bags you use at checkout, Target will give you $.05 back. It’s a great way to keep plastic bags out of landfills while putting a little money back in your pocket.
