There are several different Target deals that are going on now. Some of these deals expire on Saturday (March 13), so if you are interested in these deals, you might want to run out to the store soon.
1. Buy 5 participating Keebler cookies and receive a $5 Target gift card.
-These cookies are priced anywhere from $1.62 to $2.99.
There were a couple different coupons for these cookies in the newspaper...$0.50 off any 2 Keebler cookies, and $0.50 off any 1 Keebler Cheesecake Middles cookies.
If you bought 5 of the Keebler Fudge Stripes cookies, used 2 $0.50 off 2 coupons, you would end up paying $7.10. You would also receive a $5 gift card. After factoring in the gift card, it would be like paying $0.42 each.
If you are starting out with no coupons, you would pay $8.10 and still receive a $5 gift card. After factoring in the gift card, you will be paying $0.62 each.
Note...you may not use your $5 gift card to pay for the first purchase, but if you wanted to buy the 5 cookies a second time, you could use the $5 gift card from your first purchase to pay for the second set of cookies...so your total would be $8.10-$5 gift card=$3.10 PLUS you will be given another $5 gift card. After the second transaction, you would be making money on the cookies. :)
If you want to lower your grocery budget, it is important to stock up on items when they are on sale. That way you can wait and never have to buy items at full price again.
2. Buy 5 participating Kellogg's snack items and receive a $5 Target gift card.
-These items are priced between $2.00 and $2.50. They include Nutri Grain Bars, Special K Fruit Crisps, Special K Granola Bars, Pop-Tarts, along with several other crackers and snack items. The participating products will be listed on hang tags from the store shelves.
Like the above cookie deal, you cannot pay for your initial transaction using the first $5 gift card, but you can go through and do the deal a second time and use that first $5 gift card to get your total down.
There was a coupon for $1 off 2 Nutri Grain Bars in the newspaper, and there is also a $1 off 2 coupon on http://www.target.com/. This is a manufacturer's coupon, so the two cannot be used together.
There have also been coupons for Pop-Tarts, and Special K Fruit Crisp bars in the newspapers the last couple of weeks.
3. Buy 3 General Mills cereals and receive a 4th box free.
-These cereals are priced between $2.54 and $3.89. There are several different coupons for General Mills cereals on http://www.coupons.com/ and in the newspaper. (make sure the coupons are for General Mills and not for Kelloggs!)
If you buy 4 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (priced at $2.54) and use 2 $1 off 2 coupons (from the newspaper) your total would come to $5.62 (or around $1.40 per box).
4. Buy 3 Pillsbury Toaster Strudels and receive the 4th box free.
-These are priced at $1.89. There have been coupons for $0.35 off in the newspaper, and also $0.55 off 2 coupons available at http://www.coupons.com/.

Hope you are able to go and get yourself some good deals. If you plan on doing the deals that will give you a gift card, it might be best for you to break up your order into two different transactions. Your first transaction would be those items that would get you a gift card, and then in your second transaction you would be able to use the gift cards you just earned so you will spend less out of pocket. Most cashiers are very friendly at our local Target and will have no problem doing that for you.
