I LOVE Target.  I love it so much in fact that I have to make a list before I go and vow to stick to it.  Otherwise, I’ll find myself WAY over budget.  There are just way too many temptations!  If you love Target, too, here are Four Ways to Save MORE at Target!  Every penny counts, right?

Five Ways to Save MONEY at Target

  • Sign up for Mobile coupons – Text COUPONS to 827438 to begin receiving mobile coupons.  These are one time use and text messaging rates from your provider will apply.

3.  Sign up for Shopkick – Shopkick is SERIOUSLY one of my favorite apps!  If you haven’t registered for Shopkick yet, you’re missing out on FREE Target gift cards!  Make sure you register here–> Shopkick Registration

4.  Price match – Target will price match online deals and competitor’s in store ads.  They will also do price adjustments in store if an item you purchased goes on sale within 7 days of the purchase date.  All you have to do is go back to the store with your receipt!  Find out more about their price match policy here–> Target Price match policy

5.  Bring your own bags  – Target will give you a $.05 credit for each reusable bag you bring to the store!
