I got paid $8.77 at Target! Lots of Freebies this Week!

Target has some great deals going on this week. 

When you combine sale + coupon + gift card promotion + mail-in-rebate, you not only get items for free, but you can make money!!  

I made $8.77 for taking all of this out of the store.  You can too!

I got 10 mouthwashes, 9 mini shampoos, 8 eyeshadows, 29 toothpastes, and 24 toothbrushes for better than free.

To make the most of this deal, you will want to shop today or tomorrow. Many of the coupons expire 4/30 and to take advantage of the mail-in-rebate, you have to shop on or before 4/30.

Here are the deals:

1. When you buy 4 Cover Girl products, you get a $5 gift card. So you can buy 4 eye shadows for $3.14 each or $12.56 total. Use 4 of the $2 coupons from 4/28 SS and bring the total down to $4.56 and then get a $5 gift card.  

Do note that if you are going to buy more than 4 of these eye shadows, you need to do them in separate transactions. You can only use 4 identical PG coupons in one transaction and Target registers will beep if you try to use more. My Target had no problem with me doing 4 separate transactions. I not only did separate transactions so I could use 4 identical PG coupons at a time, but also so I could get gift cards and then pay with gift cards.

2. The 1.7 oz bottles of Loreal Advanced Shampoo and Conditioner are 99¢ at Target. These are found right next to the big bottles of Loreal in the shampoo aisle. Use the $1 off coupon from 3/17 RP and 4/28 RP to get these for free. I had 9 coupons.

3. Target is giving a $5 gift card when you buy certain oral care products. Many of their $5.99 oral care products qualify for this deal. These $5.99 items are not found in the oral care aisle; they are found in the back corner of the store where the holiday/seasonal merchandise is typically set up. In the back corner of the store, there is a bulk packaging and value size section. This is where these oral care products are.

So combine a $5.99 product with a $1 coupon with the gift card promotion and you can get toothpaste, toothbrushes, and mouth wash for free. I will be donating a lot of the above to my food pantry this week.

Listerine Mouthwash 1.5 liter is on sale for $5.99. I happened to have 55¢ coupons from a dentist office for these. So that brought the price down to $5.44 and then I got a $5 gift card for each one I purchased. There is also a $1 coupon in 4/7 RP which would make it free, but I had already used mine. Do you still have that coupon?

Colgate Optic White 2 ct Value pack toothpaste is on sale for $5.99. Use the $1 coupon from 4/14 SS to get it down to $4.99 and then get a $5 gift card which essentially makes it free.

Crest 3D White Mouth rinse with a bonus trial size bottle is on sale for $5.99. There is a $1.50 coupon in the 3/31 PG that would make this $4.49 and then you get back $5 gift card. So you would make 51¢ buying this.

Crest Pro Health 3 ct Value pack toothpaste is on sale for $5.99. Use the $1 coupon from 3/31 PG and 4/28 PG to get this for free too once you take in account the $5 gift card.

And get this: All of these products except for the Loreal shampoo qualify for the $15 mail-in-rebate when you buy $50 worth of select PG products. So save your receipts and upcs and send them in with this form and get $15!  Again, to take advantage of this mail-in-rebate, you need to have receipts dated between 2/13 and 4/30. 

So for those interested I did 4 transactions so I could use 4 identical PG coupons at a time and also so I could pay with the gift cards I got from the previous transaction.  

1st Transaction: Spent $64.28, but got 12 gifts cards back totaling $60. Now if you do not have $65 to spend out of pocket, just break down your transactions to very small ones, where you will spend $5 out of pocket and get a $5 gift card. And then  just roll the gift cards so you are paying nothing for future transactions.

2nd transaction: Spent 0, used 7 of the gift cards (10¢ remaining on one), so that means I have now have $25.10 on cards (5 cards plus 10¢). And I earned 7 cards totaling $35.

3rd transaction: Spent 0, used 9 ($4.30 left on one). So now I have left a 4.30 card, 10¢ card, and 3 cards totaling $15. And I earned 8 more cards totaling $40.

4th transaction: Spent 0, used 10¢ card and 2 cards ($3.75 left on one). So I leave the store with $4.30 card, $3.75 card, and 9 cards plus one more I just got back from this transaction. So I leave the store with $58.05 in gift cards. I spent $64.28 in the first transaction, so really I spent $6.23 real money. And then I am going to submit for the $15 rebate, so I really make $8.77!!!

You can do this!!

Ok . I gotta go. I have a Home Organization and Decor Class tomorrow night that I need to get ready for, which by the way there is still room, if you would like to come. Details here. But this deal was too good to not get on here and share. Let me know if you go to Target today or tomorrow. I'd love to hear what you get. My Target at North Hills was stocked. I did not even make a dent in the shelves.
