Reader Shopping Trips: Target

    How did you use 8 identical coupons in 1 transaction?

      arkie even though were getting a lot of restrictions lately no one seems to care. when i first seen it i asked the one manager at CVS that i almost always deal with. he said as long as it goes through they will allow it. theyre not going to make someone do extra transactions if they don’t have to. and that seems to be most peoples opinion…but always ask first 🙂

    Wow!! My Target is getting very picky about coupon usage.


    Great Job! I used to loved only now I LOVE couponing and clearance!!!How many Target web coupons can you print from home to use at the store?Do I need to print from 2 different computers? I’m just learning Target rules

    • Jen

      you can print 2 per computer for the target coupons and most others as well.

    Honestly, I was pretty nervous using 8 coupons! But it works because I am buying 8 products. I ended up printing 4 Q-Tips coupons off Recyclebank and I didn’t want the coupons to go to waste (didn’t even cross my mind that I could just hit the back button and only buy 2 of the coupons).. So I figured I’d get 8 boxes total (don’t worry, there were a TON on the shelves) to give to my parents and sister. I’ve yet to encounter any resistance using coupons, so I hope it stays that way (knock on wood)!!
