  1. Hi! I have another Target question...I went back to the same Target that wouldn't take both coupons (Located on Main & Kirby) and the same thing happened today! One example is the Colgate Wisp...I had a Target coupon and one that I cut out from the paper from Colgate- which would have made the price .99 cents. She would only take one or the other. I tried to explain but it's not worth the fight b/c they are not very nice! Am I doing something wrong (am not understanding how to use both coupons correctly)? None of the deals I had put together resulted in any free item, so I can't figure out why it's such a struggle with them! Sorry this is long, but I'm tyring to learn the coupong thing.
    thank you for yor blog!

  2. Hi! Awesome job!! I have a question regarding the Ozarka Catalina...I thought it had expired on 4/21? Is it back on? If so, awesome!!



  3. Anon - I am so sorry you are having such a difficult. I think the only way you are going to be able to use both coupons at this particular target is to call guest relations (800) 440-0680 if you have an issue and let them talk to cashier/manager. I have not had a problem ever using them together (knock on wood). You are doing everything correctly, it's unfortunate that the target employees do not know their own policies and you will run into this alot so just stand your ground.
    I have read multiple things on Target and this was an email another blogger posted from target

    We accept two kinds of coupons: Target-issued and manufacturer-issued.

    We’ll accept one Target coupon and one manufacturer coupon for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits it.

    We can’t give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item; in this case, we’re able to adjust the value of the coupon to equal the price of the item.

    We can’t accept coupons from other retailers, or coupons for products not carried in our stores.

    All valid coupons should be presented to the cashier while you’re checking out.

    Let me know if you have better luck next time

  4. Hi Melissa -
    I have looked on hot coupon world forums and googled for the end date and have not found the end date for Ozarka/Deer Park water catalina deal. It IS still going on so I guess we can just keep doing it until the well runs dry!

  5. The water Cat promo ends 5/17 or 5/19, depending on your region, but it's not as great a deal without the LWFG promo. Still cheap, though!
