SO, I stopped at the Target by my mom's. They didn't have any of the 16 wipes (97 cents there), but the ydid have the 40 count for 1.47! I was estatic!!!! I picked up 10 packs, and a string cheese-29 cents to cover the overage (assuming they would charge the last penny for tax) and my OOP would be zip!! No such luck..the last coupon wouldn't scan-said my total would be negative, so I told the kid to just scan the string cheese again-I didn't want to get out of line to go get another one!

OOP-28 cents
Saved-15 bucks plus what the tax would have been on the wipes!



I tried to stop on the way home, but the wipes were all gone by then!!!!! I have about 1500 wipes now!!!

YAY for finding the $1.47 wipes. And keep it up and you may just have enough wipes to last 15 years.

They let you use more than one per transaction? I haven't tried it since it does say one per transaction... but my Target has those ones for 1.49. I got some last night. I had a tub for 2.39, a pack of those for 1.47, and a popcorn flavor stuff for 2.08, had the 3/2, a .75 manu for the wipes, and my total was 1.66. I used the gift card I had from the diaper deal... so it was really no OOP. I'm going to get more, too. woot.

Can I just say that I love free Target goods? Specifically, free string cheese. Mmmmmmmm, stringy cheesy.

I figured I would just try using more than 1 per transaction. I personally don't see a real difference between using one per transaction or standing there and doing multiple transactions! Between the wipes and shampoos I bought I think I have done 5 transactions or so with more than 1 coupon. The most I've used in 1 transaction was 5 coupons. I've been to 3 different Targets and not a single cashier questioned it. In fact, most have commented on the good deal!

Well, before people were getting free individual string cheese sticks using the 75 coupon for KRaft cheese which adjusted down to the price and then since it was a Target coupon you didn't even pay tax on it. I totally didn't get in on this deal....I must have my head in the clouds!

I just picked up the cheese bc it was the cheapest thing I could get to use up most of the overage-everything else was priced like 75 cents or more...I didn't want to search through the store for something!

That is indeed how I got my free string cheese. 27c Kraft individual string cheeses, 75c/1 any Kraft Target q adjusted down to the price. No overage, but no money out of my pocket either. And, we love love love love string cheese.
