Get Thee to Target (Deals for Week of 8/1/10)

I love Target. I really and truly do. I’m sorry if this makes me sound like a materialistic twit, but Target might be my favorite non-family-member part about living in America. That’s how much I love it.

Dora at Mall of AmericaMy middle son is almost 5 and he LOVES Dora. More than I love Target! Last year, during a trip to Minnesota, M got to meet the “real Dora” at the Mall of America. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a happier child than my sweet boy when he spied Dora from around the corner. He was shaking, he was so excited!

Anyway, I tell you all this so you can understand how giddy I was when I saw that Target just released a ton of new Dora printable coupons (see, this is a post about Target!). You can stack these Target Qs with manufacturer Qs for some truly great deals.

Here are some of the deals I’m the most excited about:

Use three $0.50/1 Dora Band Aid Target coupon (search Personal Care)

Thanks, Common Sense with Money

Thanks, Totally Target!

In non-Dora deals, I’m also psyched to pick up:

PaperMate Eagle Pens (10-count) – $0.50
Use $.50/1 PaperMate Target coupon (search Stationery)
Pay nothing after coupon!

Hunts Snack Pack Pudding (4-pack) – $0.95 (Price Cut – this is $.05 less than the regular price at my local Walmart)
Buy 3 4-packs and use $0.30/2 coupon from the 8/1 Smart Source
Use $1/3 Hunts Snack Pack Target coupon (search Groceries)
Pay just $0.52/pack after coupons!
(I know these aren’t super healthy, but the puddings are HFCS-free, shelf-stable, and a great treat for lunches… which we’re going to have to start packing again in just a few weeks, so now is a great time to stock up!)

There’s also a deal on Morningstar products (buy 4, get 1 free) and a $1/2 coupon from the 8/1 Red Plum, but I’ve gotta get to Target to see whether these are on Price Cut. Does anyone know for sure? If not, I think these would be $1.99 each after coupons, when you buy 5. That’s $.50 per burger, which isn’t bad in my price book!


  1. I don’t know what price cut is…but I went to Target and got a good deal, I think! The morningstar farms deal also was for kelloggs cereal, which we needed. so I got 3 boxes of cereal and 2 of morningstar stuff. There was a $1 off 3 boxes coupon for the cereals this week, plus $1 off 2 Target coupon also in the circular, plus a $1 off 2 morningstar at Target as well. Since I bought 5 things, 1 was free. I saved like $7 total.

    • Good job, D! A price cut (FTR) is like Target’s version of a price roll-back at Walmart. They don’t necessarily advertise it as a sale price in the circular, but it’s basically on sale for a couple of weeks – usually 3-4. HTH.

  2. Tziporah Mazer says

    Thanks againg for posting this stuff. I would not have gotten the dora bandaides if you didnt suggest. Also now I have gotten a little obsessed with coupons and doubling them up at target. if i have a target coupon i search the internet (usually while nursing, two birds, on stone;) and find a coupon. but i also clip almost all the items in the sunday paper (check the parade mag bc they sometimes have coupons).
    i got some nature valley bars for under a dollar and also got snyders pretzels for 59 cents.
    With all my coupons, reusable bags (5cents each), sale/clearance items, and my target card (5% off) i saved over $21 this week at target. and i even forgot my coupon that if you spend over $50 you get a $5 gift card.
    thanks mara!

    • @Tziporah – Yay! Sounds like you did great! Were the bandaids priced as I said? Some Targets have different prices. I even find a difference between the BVPkwy location and the one on Wornall. Don’t forget to submit for the Toy Story book… I’m thinking cheap and easy Chanukah present?!
