Maybe you are going to find this hard to believe, but so many people shop at Target without realizing the amount of money they could save if they knew a couple of tricks.
While most people usually save a few cents every time they shop here, the real savings start to add up when you prep your shopping trips. To round up the best savings at your favorite store, check out these following strategies!
Shop with coupons: a lot of the merchandise at Target gets considerably cheaper when you use coupons to pay for it. Find coupons at Target.com for office supplies, clothing and groceries among so many other things. What’s more, stack Target coupons with manufacturer coupons for a better deal for your favorite items.
Shop the markdowns: Target marks down merchandise all the time and the clearance section most often includes electronics, women and men’s clothing, cosmetics, sporting goods, home improvement, hardware and stationery. Shop within a week after major holidays and find discounts up to 90% off on seasonal items.
Request a price match: price matching is a clever way to save money and at Target, you can have a price adjusted within 7 days from your original purchase. You will even get a price match if you find a better price at Target.com. Simply bring your proof of purchase to store at the Target service desk and receive the difference.
Get cash back when you shop online through cash back sites: sign up online with a cash back site – this is free, to get cash back on your Target purchases. If you frequently shop at Target, you may as well get some money back on what you are already spending.
Use the Target app to stay up to date with discounts: using the app is easy and using it to shop allows you to stack any available discounts with coupons and REDcard cash back instantly. As of summer 2017, the Target app comes with Cartwheel with offers of its own that you can combine with coupons.
Get a REDcard for 5% off every time you use it: a little goes a long way and with the REDcard, you not only get 5% off when you shop with it, but also free shipping online and an extra 30 days to receive something back when you return an item. This is not a credit card but a Target debit card.
Shop the beauty aisle for better prices on cosmetics and personal care: Target’s beauty aisle hides many discounts for popular beauty products similar to those you would find at Sephora. Their selection stands out and includes anything from drugstore brands to natural and organic, and high-end brands at four times less the amount of money at makeup stores.
Another thing you should know is that Target lets you stack more than two coupons for a single item. For example: say you have a Target coupon, a manufacturer’s coupon and a Cartwheel discount, in which case you can combine all three for a really sweet deal.
