Target Store Guide

Target has quite a few “rules” when it comes to using coupons, but it's nothing to worry about :)
 I highly recommend getting familiar with its Corporate Coupon Policy and Price Matching Policy. Be sure to print them and bring it with you in case you ever run into any problems while checking out.

Simply show your coupon barcode to the cashier at checkout and with one scan, all applicable coupons are applied.
Target coupons can also be found in the Sunday Newspaper Inserts. It is available several times a year AND do tend to be regional.

Target allows one manufacturer coupon, one Target coupon and one Cartwheel offer to be combined per item purchased.

In this situation the coupon amount may be reduced to meet the price of the product; No cash back.

 after all Target store coupons but before manufacturer’s coupons.

Gift Card Deals ; Offered in return for buying specified products

They may be posted inside the store but not in the circular – so be on the lookout!  
The cashier will be prompted by the register to give you a gift card. You won’t be able to use the gift card on that purchase, but you can use the gift card on future purchases.

Reusable Bag ;

Bring your reusable bag(s) to get $0.05 off (each bag) your purchase :)

Target RedCard ;

Don't have a RedCard? I highly recommend opening one up.
You get additional 5% off your purchase EVERY single time, FREE shipping with online purchase, AND an extra 30 days to return items. 

Target REDcard
Consider signing up for the Debit card instead of the credit version for the same perks and no annual fee. The Debit card is tied to your existing checking account so you can also withdraw up to $40 at checkout in-store.

Clearance ; 

Clearance End Cap
Click HERE to understand Target's Clearance Schedule!

Be sure to browse the shelves at the ends of the aisles that have red “Clearance” signs. Most of the clearance endcaps are facing the store walls and are often filled with various items that have been marked down from 15% to 70% off. 
ALSO, the day after a holiday, select items will be reduced by 50% off (usually only 30% off for candy and grocery items). BUT, if you wait 7 to 10 days, products could drop to 70% off.
The best times of year that Target offers holiday clearance prices are Valentine’s Day, Easter, Summer, Back to School, Halloween, and Christmas.

1-Year Satisfaction Guarantee on Target Brand Items ;

Target Brands
If you’re not satisfied with any Target Owned Brand item (ie: Archer Farms, Mossimo, up & up, Xhilaration, Market Pantry), you can return it within one year with a receipt for an exchange or a full refund. 
If you don’t have a receipt, they can look up your receipt whenever you bring your item, government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license), and the method of payment used to the Guest Service desk within the return window allowed for that item.
