Yesterday we told you how to get free Olay Fresh Effects cleansing wipes at Target. Many of you had trouble getting the Target mobile coupon to scan for the wipes. However, the Target mobile offer is scanning easily on the Olay Fresh Effects face cleanser. Pay just $0.74 each for two cleansers! See how below:

Buy 2 Olay Fresh Effects Face Cleanser, 5 fl oz $4.74, price cut through 9/7

    I went yesterday to buy two of Fresh Effects and Target would not honor the $5.00 mobil coupon. I was so upset.

  2. Tiffiany Williams says:

    The mobile coupon did not scan right for me in east tn area. The cashier told me that it must be because the wipes said makeup remover and not cleanser on the package. I took my coupons back and went back to the area…picked up the tubes of cleanser and snapped a pic of the sign that was in front of the wipes that labeled them as facial cleansing wipes. Showed it to the cashier and asked why they would not honor their own signing and coupon wording. Was told it was something about the barcodes or what not. I had stuff to do and told the cashier that I would be purchasing the tubes instead. Gave her my coupons and….surprise the mobile refused to work. She finally pushed it through at that point. Didn’t get my freebies….but not a bad deal on the tubes.

    Maybe if you have them scan the mobile coupons first before the manufacture?

  4. m1216 says:

    Is this deal not in oregon yet ? I went to my local target 2 days ago and it wasnt on sale, neither the scrub or the wipes:/ any idea when they will be on this sale for oregon?

    • FrugalD says:

      scan them…they weren’t marked on the shelf…perhaps because they were having too much trouble with this coupon lol

    My mobile coupon didn’t work on the 2 Olay Fresh Effects facial cleansers. Target offered me a $3 courtesy credit for my next shopping trip but refused to take the $5.00 mobile coupon. I told them to return my manufacturer coupons top me, keep the facial cleanser and keep the courtesy credit.

  6. Jen says:

    I tried to use the mobile coupon today and it scanned but didnt take the 5 dollars off. Is it not in use anymore? annoying because I really wanted to get this item.

  7. S says:

    Thanks for the information. I will try contracting Target for some clarification on the mobile coupon especially since the coupon didnt list a specific type of Olay product.

  8. Allen1986 says:

    First time I used it on the wipes and the second time I got 2 of the scrubs.

  9. Allen1986 says:

    I was able to do this twice since I signed my husband up and forward the barcode to my phone. both times the olay coupon did not scan so I took it to customer service and they gave me back my 5.00 both times..

  10. FrugalD says:

    I had trouble getting the wipes, so I decided to go for the face scrub instead since it wouldn’t be free and so I thought the coupon would go through easier…but nope..stupid thing said no offers were available…luckily the cashier was nice enough to push it through so I got both face scrubs for 1.65

  11. uvwxyz says:

    I just did this deal and when the coupon was scanned it didn’t work. I think the coupon is not to be used on “fresh effects” that’s why its not scanning. the cashier was nice and still pushed it through.

  12. Pia says:

    Did not work on the facial towelletes because it is not a cleanser. I don’t know what it is then.

  13. D3N123 says:

    HELP! When I text LUNCHBAG I get a message saying “unable to send message, message blocking is active” How do I unblock this??

    • rainyday says:

      Same.thing happened to me. You have to contact your mobile provider to take the short number text block. If worked.right away after that.

  14. S says:

    I tried using my P&G coupons along with the target mobile coupon at 2 different Target stores. Yesterday, I tried using the coupons for the wipes and today I tried using the coupons for the facial scrubs. Unfortunately, the Target mobile coupon was not applied towards the Olay products. I was able to use the mobile coupons on other products I purchased in the same transaction without any problems.

    • Erlen says:

      Anyone know how to contact Target and address the issue that the Olay mobile coupon is not working on various Olay products? I thought it wouldn’t work on the wipes (yet I haven’t gone to Target to try this) but since you tried it on the scrub too there must be a coupon problem for sure.

  15. Karin says:

    I have the mobile Target app. I also receive their text messages. But when I typed in “LUNCHBAG” I saw others scannable coupons but not one for Olay. Did anyone else experience this? I’m trying to do this deal tomorrow. Thanks.

    • kapooh1210 says:

      where do you get the 1.50 coupons at?

    • emkat13 says:

      Have you actually signed up for mobile coupons not alerts and not on the target app? I have the app as well but you have to sign up for the coupons that will come to your weekly via text message. Maybe its just me but I’m getting confused on people trying to get the mobile coupons by downloading and searching the app when you sign up on the target website using your phone number and the time zone you are in and the time of day you’d like to receive the coupons, maybe you can clarify this for me?

  16. pfg says:

    This morning, I tried to use it on the cleanser and it did NOT work. The cashier told me that I had to buy a more expense olay product in irder to get the $5 off twi.

  17. Misscoupon007 says:

    Has anyone tried this in Washington???

    • rainyday says:

      I did. I’m in nw washington. The coupon didnt work, she manually typed it in with no questions

    • Alexis says:

      I tried it at the Factoria Target. Didnt work. The manager was a brat (to put it nicely) and wouldnt override it for me. I will try at Renton Target today, they are much nicer. =)

  19. Kryssi Y says:

    Tried to do this deal on cleansers and the TQ did not work in CA. Cashier would not put it through either.

  20. Jenthebeginer says:

    Stupid question so for these two items we will use 3 coupons!?

    • jnsicilio says:

      Yes, $3 off MFC coupon per 1 item. You are buying 2 so you get the target mobile deal as well. All together, 3 coupons.

  21. Fofo713 says:

    The mobile coupon didn’t want to work with me so i couldn’t use it

  22. liz says:

    my cashier had to take off $5 manually and they were pricted 4.92 at my store, but I still got the deal and it’s a pretty sweet deal! THANK YOU!!!

    • kb90 says:

      Same here. 92 cents isnt too bad!

    • CouponShopperForever1199 says:

      Hi Liz, glad the deal work for you but did you also receive the $5.00 Target Gift Card, and did you also use the MQ (2/$1.50). What was your final price. Krazy Coupon Lady Community please let me know if anyone receive a GIFT CARD. THANKS!!

  23. kb90 says:

    I just did this deal. When I scanned the coupon the register said that I hadn’t purchased any products that qualified but I showed my cashier the mobile Q and he just did it manually. I think its a problem with the mobile q

    • YiSeul says:

      The problem is usually the overage. Since Target doesn’t give the overage, when you have coupons that equal more than the purchase prices of the products, it says you aren’t purchasing the correct items. This has happened to me quite a bit, and most cashiers will just enter it manually, but I have had some who said I can’t use it. =/

  24. Looperfam10 says:

    Where do you go to figure out the target codes? Like “lunchbag” and “offers”? Is there like 5 a month or something? They come to me regularly…but not this one!

    • emkat13 says:

      some have said they show up on the site but I have never seen them so it must be a KCL/other bloggers secret that no one seems to share lol. I’ve even googled simply because I’d like to continue to get as much info as I can incase heaven forbid something happens and I have to fend without KCL

  25. Ann Coggi says:

    The $5 off target coupon wouldn’t scan for me but the cashier manually input it. She also manually overrode an additional $3 of MFR that wouldn’t scan.

    TIP: Get to know your cashier, use the same person if you can. Be friendly and organized. I have thawed-out a couple cashiers by handing them a great coupon ‘stack’ so all they have to do is go grab it off the shelf at the end of their shift. They actually seem to cheer for me as apposed to groaning when I hand them 20+ coupons.

  26. bunchies86 says:

    I got the wipes. The bar code did not show at the store, so I told them to punch in the numbers and it gave me 3.00 off instead of 5. They refuse several times till I told them it was my first time using this type of thing on a phone and could someone with knowledge of how to use it help me. I called target and ask them to send me the other 2.00 owe me. We will see if I get it. When I got home I down loaded the cartwheel app to my phone and then the bar code came up.

  27. adie says:

    can we use the mobile coupon more than once?

  28. Kassidy says:

    I just downloaded the Target app to get this deal, and I do not have a mobile coupon for Olay. :(

  29. fanyvqz1017 says:

    unfotunately it didnt work for me my sister or my friend i got so upset but i didnt argue i just left them!! i dont get why, the manager argued that its only for the one pictured and i read it to him SLOWLY for him to understand it and he said well i dont knw but its not working WHAT AN IDIOT!!!!

    • emkat13 says:

      you should have asked him to get someone who does know because you do

    • Kathryn Webb says:

      That is so frustrating. When they show in a store ad a picture of a box of cereal, and it says “all Kelloggs,” does that mean only the one box is on sale? *sigh*

  30. Barb says:

    Will this work online?

  31. Is the $5 off 2 Target coupon working on these cleansers? I read on another site it wasn’t working on the wipes.

  32. emkat13 says:

    This says “Effects” so does it just give the illusion of having a fresh face or does it actually work? lol

    • betseylou says:

      I got a sample of this..and actually when i used it people noticed my skin!

    • Alicia says:

      My sample smelled like fish! Lol. I hope the full size doesn’t smell like that

      • emkat13 says:

        yeah baby, that’s what we want, Fish Faces! …oh so gross lol. I’m not sure the formula would change in a full size that wouldn’t be in a sample but hey you never know. I like Olay but my skin isn’t oily so, hopefully if I decide to do this one it’ll be great.

    • Steph says:

      Its ment for oily skin. Thankfully I got a sample of this in mail and tried it out first. It made my not-so-oily face VERY dry.. Maybe it will work for others though

      • emkat13 says:

        yeah that’s what I was wondering too lots of things tend to relieve problems then make other problems lol
