Target - YAY Cheap Qtips! - Happy Anniversary Honey!
YAY! Ok, as a couponer, I have learned (and taught) that you cannot be brand loyal if you want to really really save. Well, that mentality only goes so far, especially when you have a non-couponing spouse.
One item my husband refuses to compromise on are his cotton swabs! NOTHING, I mean NOTHING can replace Q-tips and if I do not bring him home Qtips, he would actually go out to the store and buy them himself FULL PRICE (GASP!)
Well, as you may know, Q-tip coupons do not come out too often and deals on Q-tips are also rare indeed. You have to imagine my excitement today when I was told by a coupon buddy that I needed to look at the Target ad (THANKS IMM <3 ).
This week, Target has a deal on select Dove or Q-tip products. When you purchase 4 participating items in a single transaction, you get a $5 Target gift card. All the Q-tips along the wall at my Target were clearly marked for this promotion so naturally I grabbed the cheapest ones to optimize my savings. These 170 count Q-Tips were $1.89 each.
4 x $1.89 = $7.56 - $5 gift card = $2.56 + tax* = $2.77 or just .69 each!
What is even better is I used my earned $5 ShopKick Target gift card to pay part of it so really really cheap deal since that was FREE! (read my write up on Shopkick here)
*For you Tx readers, I noticed something cool with taxes. It seems the gift card reduced my taxes on this order. My taxable amount was only $2.56 NOT the full $7.56. That's cool!
Don't understand my lingo? Go here.
