This time we hit Target just to have a little fun. Of course, we shopped around looking for match-ups and we posted a few here. But today we had no particular plans other than to find a birthday present for the youngest and have a little fun after a whirlwind week of clipping, snipping and losing out Internet connection! In the video, we show you some super-awesome shot glasses we got from Crystal Head Vodka. We’re going to do a write-up later this week, but if you’re interested you can find them here.
With three haul videos in one day, Jessica starts to get a little punchy. Just FYI… You’re right…Four $5 Target gift cards really does equal $20 for your next shopping trip. Jessica never was very good at Math!
Retail Value: $75.00 After Coupons, Target Cartwheel and four $5 Target Giftcards: $35.48. Savings = 52%!
Cartwheel is Target’s version of in-store digital coupons only, instead of a loyalty card, you download your digital coupons to an app and then let the cashier scan your Q-code either on your smartphone or a copy of your Q-code that you’ve printed from your computer. Target offers Cartwheel deals on lots of items in the store – not just groceries. Instead of offering cents or dollars off per purchase, they offer percentages. For example, they’re currently offering 10% off Schick Quattro for Women. Target also allows you to stack manufacturer’s and digital coupons with their Cartwheel offers so you can get even more savings on sale items. The “Perfect Storm” Jessica mentions? Find an item on sale that also has a manufacturer’s coupon AND a Cartwheel discount. And if you can also get a free $5 Target Gift Card in the bargain… well… that’s when it’s time to build your stockpile!

Jessica never was very good at Math when she was in school and she’s certainly no better now. *sigh. What’s a mother to do, right? When you listen to her do the math in her videos I’m sure you wonder – How DOES she manage to save so much money when she can barely put two and two together. Don’t worry. She’s not really as horrible at sums as it seems. When she’s shopping she’s in the zone. But Jessica insists that all of our videos be unscripted and real. Consequently, she has to remember all these prices and coupon values off the top of her head. It’s a cute head, to be sure, but by the time we do these videos it’s often clouded with Miller Light because we are, after all, The Happy Couponers! In this haul, Jessica shows you how she stacked a $1/1 Target coupon with a $1/1 manufacturer’s coupon to get 2 packages of Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce for free. Then she used her Target Cartwheel code combined with a manufacturer’s coupon code to get another one for just 64 cents. And there’s another lesson in this video: Always clip the coupons and always have them with you! Jessica found 6 boxes of Bertolli pasta on the clearance rack, marked at 64 cents and the original price was $1.29. When she used this $.55/2 Barilla Pasta coupon she got each box for just 37 cents.
