I got this deal last night at my target. There was no sign for it so I did a price check and it rang up as the $2.48. I was planning in getting it anyway since I have 3 sister-in-laws who are pregnant. I used (3) $1/1 MQ (3) .50/1 TQ and it gave me the $5 gift card. I paid $2.94 and got the $5.00 giftcards back, so I did the deal twice:)

where did you get the .50/1 target coupon from?

It came in my newpaper. It ONLY works for the orginal desitin (purple box) with 20% more. The others rang up at regualr price. I think that is why so many people have had trouble with the deal.

is the $1.50/1 for soothing bath rash treatment the same coupon it appears to be labeled the same on smartsource $1/1 and can i use this on the diaper cream

never mind i went to desitin site and got the coupon from there.

I just saw this and the only coupon on Smartsource I can find is for Desitin Soothing rash bath treatment… that’s won’t work will it?

how can we figure out which Targets regionally have this deal!? i have looked at their website and googled it. If i cant find it on a target web site then i can “price match” and get the same deal at my own target that is not currently running this promo. right??

At my store in VA it’s only the Desitin Bath Treatment that the deal is for. FYI

I just got this deal at the target at Richmond,VA…you need to hunt for the purple cream with the 20% off.

Just tried this deal at my target and no go, not on sale and no gift card
either. I also tried on the johnson and johnson and no go on that either.
Bummer………….. !!!! Guess this must be regional and of corse my region is not included(New Lenox,IL.)

Can you use the .50/1 off Johnson and Johnson skin care item on this as well since it is the same company?

I just tried it at my target in Buffalo NY and it would not allow me to. The cashier was very nasty about it. She was annoyed that I made her look through the ad and all. I ended up not getting the cream… :-(

I have done this deal 3 times a couple of weeks ago and posted in the brag lounge hope you guys find it!

Make sure you scan the desitin before you give up on the deal because many shoppers are finding they are not marked down on the box. Look for the purple box with 20% extra.

The deal worked for me as well with the 4.8 oz size (marked “20% more”). My Target actually did have it marked for the gift card deal, and as others found, it was marked at $4.99 but scanned at $2.48.

Not offering gift cards at my Target either. :-(

I also had luck with the Purple Max Strength Desitin with 20% more free. It was $4.99 but when I used the price checker, it came up $2.48. The gift card worked but it was not advertised. It was on an end cap next to the Johnson and Johnson products which also have the same gift card deal. 3 tubes are more than I would use in 2 years, but I will happily give away at upcoming baby showers! More than free is awesome! Thanks KCL!!

The desitin deal for $5.00 gift card when u purchase 3…did not work at my target …antelope valley…so used the $5.00 gift card rec from the vitamin deal to purchase at a deal….

It seem the purple box is working that stays 20% more free. Make sure to scan it because most aren’t marked down.

I just got back from Target. The purple box that says 20% more DOES work and it isn’t marked on sale or for the gift card. I also had a couple of Target coupons from the Target baby coupon book (exp 1/11) I got in the mail for an additional 75 cents off each! $2.48 sale price – $1 man Q – 0.75 T Q=0.73 each plus $5 gift card:)

If you go on passion for savings site you can print another 2 /$1 coupons for desitin

Just wondered if I could use this for the aveeno this week at target and get the same deal I have several 1/1 aveeno coupons and I could use those products as my kids are in their teens, i have no babies around?????

You can do this on the Aveeno though I’m not sure on the price. Good luck!

hey krisitina
did u try them on the aveeno? did it work?

can you do the same thing with the Aveeno Baby lotion? theres $1 off coupon and its eligable for the $5 gift card

anyone know how long this deal is good for?

Signage at my store said it was good through 2/4/12

I don’t see the Desitin coupon on target.com – is this for a specific zip code that I need to enter? I’m new to this, anyone?

I think the coupon is through Smart Source. If you click on her link, it should take you to it :). Hope this helps!

This is a smartsource coupon not a target coupon. Just click on the link and look for desitin.

There will be a .50/1 coupon in the Target Johnson and Johnson insert this Sunday. Not sure if that will be a manufactor coupon or target but if target this may become a money maker of $1.50.

Tried this deal, Desitin was marked at 3.29 for the regular. I price checked all different kinds. The sign is only for the 5.99 Destin, the bath rash soap. I tried anyway, still a good deal with the 1.50q i had but no gift card generated.

Is this deal valid? The site it comes from “My Frugal Adventures” lists the deal as good through 1/4??

OOPS! It says 2/4 not 1/4 as I previously thought. Sorry for the confusion, it appears the deal is still up and running. :)

The thing about this is deal is that the desitin that triggers the gift card isn’t regular price of 2.48. It’s regular price is 4.99 but is ringing up at 2.48. It is the purple Desitin in the 20% more box and I found mine on an end cap. It isn’t marked at 2.48 (it’s marked at 4.99) so make sure to do a price check before heading to check out. Deal worked great for me!!!

Thanks for sharing. I saw this deal posted earlier and went and tried it today but it didn’t work. I did see the ones you mentioned. Looks like I’m going back tomorrow.

I’ll have to try this tomorrow! It’s amazing how fast we go through this stuff with two in diapers. ><

I have a general question about Target Coupons. If the coupon states “Limit one coupon or offer per guest”, does that mean you can only print and use this coupon one time? It still allows 2 prints and you may have multiple computers, so I wasn’t sure if that meant per transaction, or if you can use another one on a different shopping trip? These coupons are the one’s that I am getting hung up on?

It means per item..you can use one coupon on each item and buy the two items with the two coupons…in one transaction

not on the Target ones. You cannot use two like Target coupons in one transaction. Our store even does not let me use them in one shopping trip.

This is a YMMV situation. Some targets will allow you to use more than one in a transaction, some allow more than one in a trip, if you separate transactions, and some are very strict about the one per person rule.

i haven’t had any issues using two of the same in one transaction

i think it pretty much depends on what state your in because my target (California), you can only use one coupon on one item you can’t use 2 like coupons in the same transaction. i would try just going to a different cash register to make it another transaction.

i saw this on another blog a couple days ago. i tried it and it didnt work. no gc. i asked the cashier and she said it wasnt giving gc for that item. there also was no sign for it.

Because it is an unadvertised deal we can’t guarantee everyone will find it in there store. Bummer!

Destin cream is priced at over 5 $$ at my target:((
