Target Coupon

Postby debcom » Fri Nov 29, 2013 9:09 am

RANT: I was disappointed in the Target coupon (20% off any single trip between Dec. 1st and 6th) -- I read the ad scan for the rules, restrictions and exclusions carefully (can't be used on gift cards, can't be used on Rx, all of which is pretty expected). I waited until after midnight to do my Target run so I could get the coupon and when I had the physical coupon in my hand, there were a TON Of exclusions, including a bunch of name brand items and all video games and systems. I understand exclusions but not advertising them up front was a bait & switch-- not cool, Target, not cool.

Oh that's CRAP! The whole reason we waited to purchase Target at midnight was because of the 20% having very few exclusions.

If it was posted on this site, it certainly wasn't posted where I could find it, and believe me, I looked. The exclusions were NOT listed in the adscan or on the actual ad I received in my newspaper-- only the part about not being valid on alcohol, gift cards and prescriptions. I would not have bothered waiting until after midnight if I knew how many of the electronics/ALL video games would be excluded.

Not a ton of exclusions only 12.
1.gift cards
2. iTunes cards
3. Apple
4. Bose
5. all video games
6. PS4
7. Xbox One
8. Target mobile
9. prescriptions
10. optical
11. clinic
12. alcohol
It's actually one of the more liberal coupons that I have ever seen. Just FYI bfads had posted the exclusions when they posted Targets BF flyer.

Did not even take a minute to find it. Sorry. :( Feel free to send the coupon to me if you aren't gonna use it :lol:

What is interesting about the exclusions is that many are on items where Target probably cannot control the price they charge. The big issue will really be what will Target's prices be for the time you can use the coupon. If prices are up 15% then its not that big of a deal, if they stay the same as before then pretty good.

Honestly loved the coupon. Used it yesterday! Yes, there are a few exclusions but with my cartwheel, red card, and 20% off I saved a ton of money.

Hmmm I am going to go use it. Glad I saw this. However, I am not planning on buying anything on that list with it so I guess I am okay. I hope so.
It just isn't Black Friday when it is Thursday.......
