This week only, score free BIC pencils in stores at Target using just your phone and the Target app.

There’s a new coupon for $2 off mechanical pencils, and the Xtra Sparkle Pencils are on sale for $1.59 through the end of the week. While Target doesn’t allow you to get overage, the $2 coupon will reduce to $1.59 and make this pack free.

We had a little trouble getting this coupon to apply at checkout. Luckily, we called over the manager, and she was able to manually add it for us. She did this because the coupon matched the description and she was able to get it to attach to the BIC pencils in the Target app by scanning the product barcode. She said that some back-to-school items are having a hard time scanning lately and that this could be a problem. If you dislike confrontation, this deal isn’t for you.

Because you’re using a manufacturer coupon, this deal is only available in stores. For access to the offer, download the Target app.
