Use Target coupons

This is probably the most obvious money-saving hack for shopping at Target. Make sure to check target.com for discounts on everything from groceries to office supplies before you head out to the store. Here are some insider secrets from Target employees to save even more money at the store.


Always check the wall-facing end caps

Target stores all of the discounted items on the shelves at the end of their isles. Make sure to check there for things you need before going down the aisles.

Use the Target Cartwheel app

Cartwheel is Target’s social coupon app. Simply download the Target app, log in, and present the coupons you want to use to the cashier when you check out. The great thing about Cartwheel is that you can use the coupons with Target and manufacturer coupons for an even better discount. Also, coupons through the app can be used up to four times. So if you buy four of discounted bottles of shampoo, money can be taken off each bottle. Don’t miss out on these 50 insider secrets to save big bucks at all of your favorite stores!

Stack your coupons

Target is one of the retailers that lets you double dip your coupons. You can use Target coupons, manufacturer coupons, and Cartwheel coupons all on the same item. If you’re lucky, you may be able to get the product for free, or even at a profit. Or try stealing these money-saving habits from bargain shoppers.


Combine sales and coupons

You can get insane discounts when you use coupons on items that are already at a discount. In fact, couponmom.com will match the items on sale at Target that week with manufacturer coupons. Want other easy ways to save money? These Target Black Friday deals are too good to miss!


Price match items

Target also lets you price match items that sell for a lower price at select retailers. If you find an item in the store for less at target.com, amazon.com, walmart.com, bestbuy.com, toysrus.com, babiesrus.com, or a competitor’s local printed ad, you can bring your receipt in with proof of the lower price and they will give you the difference. Something to note, it has to be within seven days of the purchase date. Here are the shopping tips you never knew you needed to save tons of money at Costco.
