Target’s promotion through 10.24: Buy 2 Purina Light Weight Tidy Cats liter, 8.5 #, on sale for $11.99 each, and receive a $5 Gift Card. The larger size 35# clumping liter is also part of the buy 2 and get a $5 Gift Card (I just didn’t have manuf. coupons for those).
Buy 4 Light Weight Liter at $11.99 each.
You will receive two $5 gift Cards during the transaction because of the promotion/sale (to use on another transaction).
Use one Target Coupon, for a Free $10 Target Gift Card when you spend $40…. from SS 9/27, exp 10/23.
Use four Manuf Coupons (MQ) for $3 off each Purina Light Weight Tidy Cat liter from RP 7/26, exp 10/27.
Total prior to coupons = $47.96.
Pay $35.96, but receive $20 in Target Gift Cards. Like $15.96 for 4, or $3.99 each, when you buy 4.
Above, is how the deal should work. However, when I did mine, I used 2 prior earned $5 Gift Cards, bringing my total down to $25.96 ($27.33 with taxes). Then, walking away from the cashier, I noticed that only 2 of the MQ were shown on the receipt, even though I gave the cashier 4 MQ. I verified with the cashier that she had received 4 MQ from me, she gave them back to me because I had to go to customer service…. just a few steps away, so I gave customer service those 4 MQ. They verified, that yep, only 2 were shown on the receipt, and they gave me $6 back in cash. So $27.33 – $6 – $20 in Gift Cards earned = $1.33 for 4 containers of liter. (or really $2.49 each, ex tax and ex prior Gift Cards used as payment, for those that don’t like to count GC used as payment)
I’m not saying this will happen to everyone, but it was a good deal for me. I don’t know why the receipt only shows 2 MQ used, not till getting home did I do the math, and realize that somehow in the subtotal, the math works out as if 4 MQ had been used. Oh well.
