A Rare Trip to Target and The Shelves Weren't Cleared Yet!

So I don't go to Target much.
Let's just say it's because of bad past experiences and we only have 1 Target here so unless you get there on Sunday-the day the sales start-you will only find empty shelves where the good buys USE TO BE!

So I don't go much....except I had to be nearby this evening to pick up Hubby's car from the repair shop.

I decided to stop in and see if there was anything left that is on sale this week.
I did two transactions but I put all of it in one photo.
I always have a $5 Gift Card to use from a previous Free Target Gift Card Deal.

  1. Hey, I saw your question about the $-off receipt coupons on my Coffee/Target post, so I wanted to respond. I had never seen anything like it before just a few weeks ago. First, I got a Q on my receipt for $1 off anything in their cafe. Meh. Then I got a $5/$75 receipt Q good ONLY on electronics. So two nights ago after I did the Cheez-Its deal, I saw the $5/$75 on my receipt again but didn't look too closely thinking it was also for electronics, and I don't usually buy electronics at Target (rarely - I did get an iTouch there for xmas last year to grab the nifty gc (whore!) deal that came with it).

    ANYWAY, yesterday I was getting my coffee Qs ready to go and happened to notice this was an all-inclusive $5/$75. I still didn't think i'd use it until I started adding up all the coffee I was putting in my cart - LOL!

    Unfortunately, I don't know what triggers them, so just take a look at each receipt you get and keep your fingers crossed :)

  2. You are amazing!
    And thank you so much for all of your help with Anna. It is wonderful to have you. It is always an easier journey when you have a knowledgeable friend/guide with you.
