Inexpensive Chanukah Gift Ideas #2: Free Glade Jar Candles at Target

glade candles deal target

Are you in the market for some nice, but inexpensive teacher’s gifts for Chanukah?  Between my two boys, we have at least 9 teachers to buy for, so I definitely need to think creatively in order to avoid spending a fortune!

One of my go-to ideas is putting together gift baskets with a number of pampering items — a nice scented candle, some hand lotion, or a box of herbal teas. I also like to include some homebaked goodies, and then tuck in a little card about “being good to themselves” since they are always so good to everyone else.

Every year at this time it seems that Target has gift card promotions and sales on their Glade candles, making them free after coupons — perfect timing for getting a head start on your teacher’s gifts!

Here’s how to get 10 of them for free this week:

Purchase 10 Glade Jar Candles for $2.50 each
Buy Five, Get a $5 Gift Card promotion from Target
Use (5) Buy One, Get One FREE from 9/26 Smart Source
Use (2) $1.50/2 coupons here
= 10 FREE  after gift cards & coupons!

If you only have one of the BOGO coupons, I’d suggest doing the deal like this:

Purchase 5 Glade Jar Candles ~ $2.50 each
Use (1) BOGO from 9/26 Smart Source
Use (2) $1.50/2 coupons here
= 5 candles for $2.00 or $.40 each!

Thanks, Kansas City Mamas!

What are your favorite ways to handle teacher’s gifts without breaking the bank?


  1. 9/26 SS BOGO says not to be combined with other offer. Also, Can’t use 7 coupons to buy 5 items. The 5 free ones don’t count.

    • Jaen – Thanks for your comment. I wanted to respond since there were some inaccuracies in what you wrote and I wanted to clear that up in case any of my readers are confused.

      In the first scenario, you would be buying 10 items, not 5. And in the second scenario, it’s 5 items, but only 3 coupons (one is free with the BOGO, the other 4 are affected by the two $1.50/2 coupons). Plus, unless a store has a particular policy about coupons not exceeding items (such as Walgreens), you actually can use more coupons than items. For example, if you buy one item, but combine a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon.

      I am in the process of writing a post right now on the “rules” of coupons, as I would never want to steer my readers — especially since many of them are new to couponing — into an unethical deal.

  2. great idea… i guess we can’t all by glade candles for the same teachers 🙂
