This post is a step-by-step for Beginners who wants to Learn how coupon at Target… we will teach you how coupons works at Target and their coupon Policy you can check HERE….

Are you Ready? … Lets Start with the basics…

Target accepts the following coupons:

Manufacturer coupons from the newspaper

Target accepts manufacturer coupons from the Sunday paper and allows FOUR copies of the same manufacturer coupon per transaction. Find manufacturer coupons in the coupon inserts in most Sunday newspapers. Papers usually contain between one and three coupon inserts from SmartSource, RedPlum, or Procter & Gamble.

FAQ: What is the difference between ‘per purchase’ and ‘per transaction‘ when using coupons?

  • One coupon per purchase means you’re using one coupon per item being purchased. You can use multiples of the same coupon as long as each coupon has a matching item.
  • One coupon per transaction means you can use only one specific coupon per store transaction. You can’t use more than one same coupon, even if you’re buying multiple items.

 Printable manufacturer coupons

Target also accepts printable manufacturer coupons. Printable coupons are located in thousands of different places across the Web.

Mexicouponers aggregates all the coupons in one place. Find printable coupons on mexicouponers by searching by product HERE

Coupons may be printed and redeemed in black and white and must have a scannable bar code or they won’t be accepted at Target.

FYI – Manufacturer coupons from the newspaper and Manufacturer coupons printed at home CANNOT be stacked on the purchase of one item.

Target Store Coupons

You can use FOUR identical Target Store coupons per Transactions… If the Target Coupon is worth $1 off one Cottonelle SoothingClean Wipes you may ONLY buy FOUR all in one transaction…

But.. If the Target Store Coupon is $3 off two Cottonelle SoothingClean Wipes, you may be able to buy EIGHT products all in one transaction!!!

Cartwheel app discounts

The Cartwheel app It’s like carrying around hundreds of coupons in your pocket, all neatly organized and accessible!

Save on the things you already buy at Target with Cartwheel! Choose from hundreds of offers with discounts of 5-50% off just by adding an offer to your Cartwheel list…  when you’re ready to purchase your items, click ‘checkout’ in the app and show your Cartwheel app to the cashier. He’ll scan the bar code on your smartphone deducting all of the discounts at once!!!

Plus Target is offering a New Reward System … The Cartwheel REDPerks which gives users points for every dollar spent!!!

Once you reach certain thresholds, you can redeem your points for a free “Perk”. 5,000 points, for example, will earn you perks like a free toy, free book or a free bottle of laundry detergent.

How many Cartwheel offers can I redeem at one time?

You may redeem all the Cartwheel offers on your Cartwheel list at the time of your transaction.

For example

If you have 10 offers on your list when you scan your barcode at a Target store, and you’re purchasing items tied to all 10 offers, you’ll save on all 10 items. If you’ve unlocked additional spots on your Cartwheel, you will save on all the offers you have room for in your Cartwheel at one time.

How many times per day can I use my Cartwheel list at a Target store?

You can save on your entire Cartwheel list up to 6 times per day.

How many items does Cartwheel Deducts (LIMIT)?

Each Cartwheel offer will automatically redeem, up to four times. Meaning, if I add the 5% off Nabisco Crackers Cartwheel offer to my list, and I buy five bottles of Nabisco Crackers, when my cashier scans my Cartwheel barcode, I will receive 5% off the first FOUR bottles I purchased, but not the fifth.

Can I stack a Percent-off Cartwheel with a MFR Coupon?

Yes! You can… You can stack a 20% off Pampers Target Cartwheel with a manufacturer coupon and Target Coupon too!!!

FYI  Target Cartwheel also has manufacturer coupons like $2.00 off Pampers Swaddlers Diapers and are only ONE Single Use ONLY!

(You can’t stack a Target Cartwheel manufacturer coupon & a Manufacturer Newspaper coupon… the register will reject it as if you handed in two paper coupons for ONE product!)

Target mobile text coupons or Category Coupons 

Every week, Target offers Category Coupons or mobile text Coupons such as $20 off $125 Baby Purchase when you text BABY to TARGET (827438), those mobile coupons will be send by text and you can use them just by showing the barcode to your cashier!

How Many times I can Use Category/Mobile Coupons?

  • Category Coupons are limited to one per transaction
  • Manufacturer Target mobile coupons ($2.00/1 Pampers Diapers) may only be redeemed once. Threshold coupons may be redeemed multiple times if you separate transactions.

                                                                          Manufacturer Target Mobile Coupons (Dollar-off)

Can I stack Category/Mobile Coupons?

Yes!!! All mobile coupons will stack with manufacturer coupons and/or Target Coupons. Mobile coupons with a spend like $5 off $25 Beauty purchase can be combined with a Cartwheel offer, such as 5% off Wet n Wild Cosmetics.

Dollar-off mobile coupons don’t stack with a Cartwheel

Rebate apps

There are some apps you will like to download and have it forever in your smartphone, plus your Target receipts are eligible for additional savings after your purchase!!!!

Ibotta, MobiSave, and Checkout 51 will make you save even more!!! After you shop, upload a photo of your receipt to prove you purchased the right products, then your rebates will be credited to your account automatically!

How to stack coupons at Target

Double Coupon Stack

Target coupon policy allows one manufacturer coupon (newspaper, printable, or Cartwheel digital), one Target coupon (paper or digital) per item.

Triple Coupon Stack

Stack a Manufacturer printable coupon a Target Cartwheel Offer.. Plus a Rebate!!!

Submit $2.00/1 Huggies Diapers any size any variety (Checkout 51 Deposit)
Final Price: $28.98 when you buy TWO, like paying $14.49 each!

Stacking Order

The order in which discounts are applied is important, don’t worry how you hand coupons to your cashier… the savings will be the same… but just in case… here is how:

Target coupons
Cartwheel offers
Manufacturer coupons
Target threshold coupons
Target REDcard savings

FYI  When you’re using a category coupon and if your other coupons bring your subtotal beneath the $20 or more you won’t be able to receive the discount or FREE Target Gift Card!!!

BOGO Stacking 

Can I combine coupons with a BOGO at Target?

Yes you can… but remember new coupon policy allows you can never use a manufacturer coupon on the ‘free’ item in a BOGO.

For Example:

Buy (4) Herbal Essences Shampoo & Conditioner $3.29 
Buy FOUR, Receive $5 Target Gift Card 
Use (2) B1G1 Free Herbal Essences Coupon
Pay: $6.58
Receive $5 Target Gift Card
Final Price: $1.58 when you buy all, like paying $0.36 each! 

Cartwheel and BOGO

Cartwheel will only save you money on the paid item in any BOGO free transaction.

If Market Pantry Cheese is part of a BOGO Free Sale at Target, plus they are offering a 5% off too… discount will only save you on ONE of every TWO Pack of Cheese you buy…

Why?? Remember the 2nd package of Cheese is ringing up at $0.00 and the 5% of $0.00 is NOTHING!!

Save an Extra 5% Off your Purchases

Target also has another way to save an extra 5% off your purchases… Choose between a Target Debit Card or Credit Card…

Target Debit Card works similarly to any other debit card, but it offers some generous discounts and perks for consumers who frequently shop at Target. Like regular debit cards, it is available to receive cash withdrawal at the register, but is limited to $40.00 at the point of sale.

The benefits of this card

  • No annual fee, 5% off all Target purchases
  • Free shipping for purchases made online
  • Additional 30 days allowed for returns

Target Credit Card Before we get too excited about the Target Debit Card, we still need to review the basic features of the Target Credit Card.

The benefits of this card

  • No annual fee, 5% off all Target purchases
  • Free shipping for online purchases
  • Additional 30 days allowed for return

The one MAYOR DIFFERENCE between these two cards is that this particular card works on credit, meaning you have the option to pay the bill at a later date. The interest rate for this credit card is 22.90%, which is a higher that most cards, but relatively typical for a retail card.

Be sure to read up on the full list of rates and fees before you decide if the Target Credit Card is the right card for you.

What Do You Get with a REDcard? 

The best thing about a Target REDcard is that you get your 5% discount at every checkout. It applies to everything you can buy in the store, including items already marked down or on sale, and you can use it while applying other coupons to your purchase.

You’ll also receive free shipping on any purchase online, an added benefit if you’re an online shopper.

Use your Target RedCard to save an additional 5% off of this purchase or any purchase made at Target or Don’t have a RedCard yet? Apply here

Price Match 

Target will price match Online & Local competitors. Price matches must be requested at guest services and can even be requested for up to fourteen days after purchase.

To request a price match, just show proof of the lower price. The Target team member will verify online price matching by looking up the item on a special tablet kept at guest services.

Learn When to Shop 

Target marks down the clearance items in each department on a specific day.

Please keep in mind this schedule may vary a bit from store to store, but for the most part these are the days that each departments get marked down:

Bring your bag

At most Targets, for each bag that you bring in to use, you will receive $0.05.
