*I originally posted this last year, I have updated it and wanted to post it again for all to see. I have several coupon policy posts that I'll be putting up, you might find a new way to save!*

We post a lot of Target deals on MoneySavingQueen.com, this is simply because I love Target. Yep, I said it, I love Target. The store is clean and well stocked plus, the coupon policy is easy to follow. This is a great store even for the money saving beginner.  In the picture above, you’re looking at $40.61 worth of groceries and I bought them for only $21.83 after coupons.

{5 Ways to Save Money at Target}
 

1. Price Match: Yes, just like Walmart, Target will also price match. If your box of cereal is on sale at Walgreens for $1.99, you can take the ad into Target and they will match that price. Typically, you have to bring the ad and your receipt to the Customer Service desk and they will give you back the difference.

2. Target Store Coupons: Perhaps the biggest advantage to shopping at Target are the Target Store Coupons. These can be combined with manufacturers coupons to make for double the savings! They change often, be sure to bookmark the link and check back.

You may even find a few ‘Target peelies’ stuck to various items throughout the store. This is especially true when Target starts to clearance out their meat, keep your eyes peeled.

3. Target Gift Cards: Many Target promotions include gift card deals. Meaning, if you buy X, you’ll get a $5 Target gift card. This is great because you can use your coupons to get down those prices and then still earn a gift card.

4. Target Clearance: I mean seriously, have you seen a store with better clearance? Shop the perimeter of the store for the best deals including the oh-so-famous Target clearance. Be sure to use coupons on those clearance items and bring the price down even lower.

5. Target Catalina Coupons: A Catalina coupon is the coupon that will print out when you check out at the register. It is triggered by the purchases you make. Target offers up amazing Catalina coupons including $5 off the purchase of $50 and even free items when you purchase other items. Don’t throw them away, keep them with you for the next time you go shopping.

In the picture above, I purchased $35 worth of groceries for only $14 after coupons. The bananas were free after coupon, one of the Friday’s meals were free because of the sale and one of the Stove Top Stuffing Mixes were free after coupon. Oh, Target, how I love thee…
