I have to admit that I am an equal opportunity sort of girl when it comes to saving money. I do not typically have a favorite store because I am simply looking for what store can give me the best deal. So typically I do not write about a particular store in my columns, because I find that if you are a smart shopper you can find a good deal at any given store. However, I could not pass up telling my readers about the savings you can find at Target if you use your coupons.
Target's policy on coupons is that their store accepts one manufacturer coupon and one Target Coupon for the same item (unless prohibited by either coupon). This can lead to huge savings.
You do not have to hunt hard to find coupons either. If you pull up the Target's website you will discover they have endless amounts of coupons on their sites. There coupons are not just for food items. I have found coupons for toys, merchandise and an abundant amount of other things. It is definitely worth checking.
Target stores also accept internet coupons. I love websites like www.smartsource.com, www.redplum.com and www.coupons.com when looking for manufacturers coupons. You can find great coupon savings without leaving the comforts of your own home. I find by using internet coupons you cut down your coupon searching time into half. I love that you can find coupons at the click of a button.
According to the store's coupon policy, Target shoppers can also receive Target Mobile Coupons. You can obtain the coupons by signing up for text alerts at Target.com /mobile or by texting COUPONS to 827438 (TARGET). Message and data rates may apply. To redeem the mobile coupons, simply show your coupon bar code to the cashier.
Target does have a limit on how many coupons you can use. They limit four of the same coupons for a product per day.
