I’ve had a few questions about how to make couponing easier, as well as questions about finding Target printables. Here are those answers:
1. Where do I find “Target coupons”? I didn’t even know they existed!
It’s okay, I didn’t either for the longest time. I use the Target coupon generator on Hotcouponworld- they do a great job of keeping it updated and removing expired coupons. Link is here. The great thing about Target coupons is you can print as many as you want. The bad thing is that some stores will only let you use one per transaction, instead of one per item. Figure out your store’s policy so that you know what you can do there, and plan around it.
Target often offers Gift Cards for certain purchases (ex: $5 giftcard when you buy 5 Kellogg’s products, etc). Some shoppers “roll” these gift cards in the same way I roll ECB’s (not sure what that means? Click here.) I don’t have a Target very close to me so I don’t do that often, but when there is a great deal I will drive there for it! Most targets will also let you “stack” store coupons with manufacturer coupons- these are often the best deals of all, especially if you can also get a gift card from it!
Also good to know: some Publix stores (especially those who are close to a Target) will accept Target coupons as competitor coupons. You can use them like you would use a Publix store coupon (the LU coupons) and stack them with manufacturer coupons. Unsure if your Publix accepts them? Ask customer service- they can tell you all of the stores in the area that they consider “competitors”. And remember, Publix store managers each set the coupon policy for their store, so every store is different!
2. What if I want to buy something not listed in the ad with match-ups? Is there an easier way to find out if I have a coupon for it than searching through my inserts?
Yes, absolutely. There is a much easier way: the coupon database at HCW. This is a great tool to make everyday couponing much easier, and is especially handy if you are using my system of organizing inserts (see here). It is also the easiest way I know to find internet coupons! Click here to access it. Just type in the name of the product you are looking for, and the database will update with the most recent coupons for that product, along with where they were found and when they expire. If it says: “8/30 PG” you can just pull out the insert from that date and clip the coupon!
