Attention Target shoppers! Target has made some changes to their Coupon Policy page to clarify the acceptance of coupons. The first new item we see is the section titled, “What is the difference between “per purchase” and “per transaction” when using coupons?” I explain it here, but it is nice to see it actually written out on a store’s website as well. Here’s what this area says:
One coupon per purchase means you’re using one coupon per item being purchased. You can use multiples of the same coupon as long as each coupon has a matching item.
One coupon per transaction means you can use only one specific coupon per store transaction. You can’t use more than one same coupon, even if you’re buying multiple items.
The other major section we see is titled, “How can I tell if Target will accept my manufacturer coupon?“. Some of you have expressed trouble with Target stores accepting your manufacturer coupon if it says, “Redeemable at…” This now explicitly covers that area so you should no longer have trouble with your store accepting these coupons. Here is what is written in this section:
- Manufacturer coupons can be accepted at the register even if they don’t clearly indicate who the manufacturer is, or if they indicate the name of another retailer.
- If a coupon states “Manufacturer Coupon,” it’s redeemable anywhere (including Target), even if the coupon states, “Redeemable at Kroger, Cub, etc.” (or any other retailer).
- Manufacturer coupons that are found on the Internet and printed are accepted.
- Target doesn’t accept manufacturer “rebate” coupons.
I would highly recommend printing off the updated Target Coupon Policy (or bookmarking it on your phone) and maintaining access to it while you shop.
Thanks, Totally Target!
