    I noticed, as you mentioned, that some coupons that I print from Target.com state “manufactuer coupon” at the top. So my question is, are you allowed to stack one of these “manufacturer coupons” printed from Target.com with a manufacturer coupon found somewhere else? Or, are you only allowed to stack Target “Web coupons” with manufacturer coupons? Thanks!

    • Josie says

      They must say “Target Store Coupon” or “Target Web Coupon” on top in order to be stacked with a manu coupon. If it says manufacterer coupon on top, you can not stack that with another manufacterer coupon if they are for the same product.

    I was so fired up they refused my $3/1 pedigree when they were $4 each a few weeks ago. I called customer service but they coulnt do anything. I’m learning to shop during the week so I can reach CS n get it taken care of

    I HAVE PRINTED OUT TARGET WEB COUPONS AND WHEN I TOOK THEM TO THE STORE TO USE THEY WOULDN’T TAKE THEM . THEY SAID CAUSE IT DOESNT HAVE A PRICE AND IT WONT SCAN THEY CANT TAKE IT. WHY DO THEY HAVE THEM TO PRINT OUT IF THEY WONT SCAN.I HAVE PRINTED OTHER COUPONS THEY PRINTED OUT JUST FINE SO IT CANT BE MY COMPUTER OR PRINTER.

    I was wondering with Target is there any specific order to give the cashier the coupons. Does the order in what you handed them to them matter? First Target coupons and then Manufactures coupons? Ive saved shopping at target but i am curious about the order of handing the coupons.

    Hi,
    I was just told by a manager that I couldn’t get a rain check on a 4 day sale item (Tag Junior, Leap Frog book? Is this true? Thanks!!

    Just a quick question. I went to the Target in North Hollywood and the young gentleman checker told me I could only use 1 coupon for one item, even if I bought multiple items and multiple coupons. Example: I bought 3 Kraft Homestyle Mac & Cheese and had 3 seperate coupons, 1 per item. He said I could only use 1 coupon no matter how many items I bought and regardless of whether it said it or not on the coupon. This has NOT been my previous experience EVER at any Target!!! Was this accurate????

    • Josie says

      that happen to me several months ago at a Target here. For whatever reason they think this! I don’t shop there anymore because they all say the same thing. It may just mean that you need to call corp and let them know. :)

      • shirley says

        I was printing off my Target q’s this morning and realized that they all say “Limit one coupon or offer per guest.” So it seems they can refuse. Is this new wording? I have never had any problems using one per item, but now I’m concerned.

  8. Casady6 says

    What do you do if you used a coupon, there were no beeps, but later you can’t find it on your receipt? Also can you take your receipt & new coupons to customer service to get a “missed coupon” applied to your previous purchase? I tried this with Vons once and it was a nightmare!

    • Jane says

      Omg, this happens to me all the time! I always make it a point to check my receipt carefully before leaving the store. If any q’s are missed, I’ve been able to ask for the q’s back from the cashier and take it to CS where they will refund me the q amount. Also be cautious with those gift card deals. I have a friend who has left with her gift cards, only to find out later there was a zero credit on them. They will not be able to credit or issue you a new gift card, even with a receipt. Verify balances!

    Hi,
    Where do I find the Target match-ups? I used to get them from the store names along the top, as it’s not in one of the drop-down menus.
    Thanks!

    • Michele says

      Right now it is the very first post on Josie’s site, but I think the link has been fixed and you should be able to find it by clicking the “target” logo on the right hand side of the page.

  10. Katie says

    How did the price match work in regards to stacking coups? If target has razors for $3, but Wal-Mart has them for $2, and I have a target coupon for $1, and a manuf coupon for $1, will they price match it? What if the target coupon were for $2 off? Thank you so much à
