Target is known for their clearance racks but did you know that you can get more deals or even further reductions off the clearance rack by taking just a few simple extra steps before you leave the house for a Target run.
1. Target Cartwheel
Sign up for Target Cartwheel. Then pick what coupons you want and either download them to the app on your smartphone (or two piece version since Target has free Wi-Fi) or you can print the Cartwheel bar codes off from your computer before you leave for the store.
2. The Red Card
I thought the Red Card was yet another store credit card with high interest rates which my family avoids like the plague. Then a cashier explained it works like a debit card, automatically taking funds out of your bank account. You receive 5 percent off all your purchases in store or on line plus free shipping.
Of course this is only a good option for true savings if you keep great records of your debit card shopping so as to not spend more than you budgeted for clothing.
( on-line right now Target is not accepting new applications for the debit card Red Card, but I was offered one in store just last week so you might want to check at your local Target)
3. On-line Printable Coupons
Target’s website often has printable coupons for clothing and accessories for as high as $5 off an item.
I have had no problems using these coupons with sale and clearance items. I haven’t gotten any free items yet with these coupons but I have gotten some items for less than yard sale prices this way.
4. Websites that list great Target deals
Money Saving mom lists great clothing deals at Target whenever they arise. I suggest spending just a few minutes searching her site for current Target deals before you leave for the store.
All things Target is another great resource site for finding up to date deals at Target.
5. Discount Gift Cards for Target
Often sites such as Plastic Jungle and Card Pool have discounted gift cards available in varying amounts for either in store or on line purchases or both. These cards can save you on average an additional 5 percent.
These cards are great if you are planning ahead to make a large purchase.
