Target Stop...

My husband had to run to town so I sent him with the Ice Cream Coupons.

10 packs of Breyer's Ice Cream.
$2.50 a container on sale, I had $1.00 off each. Coupons from the Sunday paper inserts. So, $1.50 after coupon. Also, when you bought 5 you got a $5.00 gift card.
So, out of pocket was $16.00 and I got $10.00 in gift cards for next trip! Yeah! Ice Cream for the summer!

I wish I could have told you about this sooner. I just went to Target yesterday and found this. They have the Glade candle tins on sale for $1.67. Inside is a $1.50 off coupon that you can use right away. Making the candles .17 cents. Might be worth a trip back if you're in the area.

I know that this has nothing to do with Target, but I have to ask you this. If I have a Velveeta Shells & Cheese cups bogo MC, and I have a $1 off 2 MC. How many Velveeta Shells and cheese do I have to buy to be able to use both Q's? Conflicting stories on this one. How do you get real answers? Do you know if there is a way to get solid answers from the Manufacturer offering the Q, instead of relying on the stores who really make up there own rules at times.

Okay one more! Really good story!!! I went to Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago and asked them if they took competitor Q's. They did not, even though someone that I spoke with at the corp # told me they did. I went to the Target less than a mile away and used my coupons there. Shortly after that Target announced that they would be matching competitor store ads. I spoke (very professionally) to the store manager, and explained to him that I was going to take the Wal-Mart ad with my Target coupons and buy the products there because of Target's policy change. HE WAS SO NICE! He even gave me his cell phone # in case I ever had any probs! He said that they spend so much money on advertising and marketing just to get ppl in the store that they definitely do not want to be turning customer's away. My Wal-Mart now accepts other stores coupons, and you can use a MC with the Q too.
Now if all the cashiers in the store would be this nice that would be great too. :) :) :)
I'll definitely take the good though. I have a lot more pleasant experiences than negative ones anyway!!!

HI Penny, Glad you stopped in to visit my blog. The Glade Candles are a great deal! Good Find!!

I, personally, would be 4 of the Mac and Cheese Cups. I know others who don't feel badly doing 3 cups, and using both coupons, but I just don't do it. I guess you have to decide. Each story does have it's own coupon policy, so some stories may let you and some my not.

Glad to hear a good report about Target! That is awesome!!

Regarding the Velveeta Shells and Cheese Q ? I like that you say that you would buy 4. I just wanted to know what was the correct way. I see a lot of things out there, and with me being new I didn't know. I saw a comment somewhere that said that you just need to paying for 3 you should be able to use a coupon offer on 3 was the logic. Still trying to make sense of some things. I do see a lot of stuff that I know is wrong though. Honestly it makes me mad when I see ppl trying to do push through expired Q's, all kinds of things. It just makes it harder for the ppl that do this right and honestly. If you go to iheartwags.com and look at the comments for the monthly deals 5/31 through 6/27 you will see what I am talking about. I am pennyscents on there too. TTYL

HI Penny,
Yeap, sadly you will see alot of people who abuse the system. I do my best not to because I want to show people that it's better to be honest.

With that said, I have used a coupon I have gotten and then later found out it was meant to be only for certain people ( like the Pace Salsa coupon). I felt sad that it was munipulated and I used it incorrectly BUT I make sure that I don't do that intentionally.

It's "Coupon Karma", you do the right thing, and you will find that you will feel great about the deals you are getting!
