Posted on Feb 23, 2016
Attention shoppers, we're going to reveal some secrets that you will just HAVE to try when you shop at Target. They are going to save you a lot of time and money!
1. Your REDcard Doesn't Just Give You 5% Off
If you have REDcard credit or debit cards, your return policy on goods can extend up to 30 days! You don't need to pay for this service, and the card applies for everything that you buy at Target.com and Target.
2. You Can Get a Lower Price for Almost Anything!
Target can match the price of an advertised product from another retailer. So if you find products that are more expensive at Target, simply tell them and they'll correct the price without any hassle.
3. No Receipt? No Problem!
Remember that time when you bought something that was already faulty or broken and you threw away the receipt? Well, at Target, you can return just about anything without one just as long as you don't step over the annual $75 limit.
4. Use Your Smartphone, Save Paper, and Never Lose Your Coupons Again!
You can use Target's website to sign up for coupons that can be sent to your smartphone and used whenever and wherever you want to!
5. Still, Some Limits Have to Be Made
Pay attention to items that are priced $0.04 because the price of these products will have reached its final figure.
6. Bring Your Own Bags!
If you BYOB, you receive $0.05 for each grocery bag that you take with you while shopping.
7. Pay Attention to the Final Clearance
If the price of items ends in $0.06 or $0.08, the price will be lowered and will stay that way for two weeks.
8. Use the Free Cartwheel App!
This is a new app that you can use whenever you shop at Target. You can use it to find the best deals and to get the most useful coupons. You can find these by searching the app, the deals are updated on a weekly basis and it is really useful because the app tells you exactly what kind of discounts are out there. You should really try this, because you could save 10 to 15% on many products every time you go shopping!
9. Paying with Checks Will Delay Your Cash Refund for 10 Days
Sometimes paying with a check may not be your best option. If you want a cash refund, you will have to wait 10 days or you could choose to get a gift card from Target instead.
10. However, Check out Another Flexible Option on Returns!
You can return products via mail, and it's completely free of charge. Print out a return label from Target's online return service and your package will be ready without any costs!
11. Try Shopping at Goodwill!
Unsold products that have been on clearance at Target are automatically donated to Goodwill. You can find stuff here with crazy low prices!
12. On Sale but out of Stock? Don't Worry, Use the Rain Check Option!
If something is out of stock while it's still on sale at Target, asking for a rain check automatically ensures that you can get the sale price of the item when it gets back in stock.
13. Here's Another Great FREE Target App!
You can use the official Target app to get a lot of coupons. You can get more than 10 coupons each week and getting the app is really easy, just scan your phone at the cash register next time and you're all set!
14. Pay Attention to the Price Tag
If you're unsure of how much money you've saved, you can see the original price (left) and the discounted price (right) on a price tag for any product. The upper right corner will show you the percentage. How useful!
15. Pay Attention When Returning Electronics and Entertainment Products
If you bought something that was already broken, or if you're not satisfied with your purchase, you have 30 days to return your item starting from the day after you bought it.
