1. Use a Circle offer at to get up to 25% savings on brands like Gain.

Circle percent-off offers are essentially Target store coupons. You’ll see laundry detergent offers in the Target app that range in savings between 5 – 25% off.

You can access these offers and place your order at or inside the Target app.


  1. Go to “Deals” and then “Target Circle Offers.”
  2. Tap “Save Offer” when you see a laundry offer you love and then add the item to your cart.
  3. You’ll see the “Promo Applied” when you check out.

From the Target app:

  1. Tap “Discover” at the bottom screen
  2. Tap “Target Circle Offers.”
  3. Tap the offer you want and then add the qualifying item to your cart.
  4. Your promo will be applied automatically.

Here’s an example of a Circle offer and potential laundry savings on Gain:

Buy 1 Gain Essential Oils Concentrated Laundry Detergent $9.99, regular price
Use 25% off Gain Essential Oils, Target Circle Offer
Final Price: $7.49


2. Stack Circle percent-off offers with P&G Everyday coupons for deeper savings.

If you want to get the best prices possible on laundry detergent at Target, combine Circle offers with P&G Everyday coupons. This works in store only — you can’t use paper coupons for online orders and apply at pickup at Target, like you can do at some stores.

You can find P&G Everyday coupons once a month — look at for printable coupons, or find them once a month in your Sunday newspaper.

When you combine, or “stack” a Circle offer (store coupon) with a P&G Everyday (manufacturer) coupon, you can get stock-up worthy prices on brands like Tide, Gain, and Downy! Keep in mind you can apply one Circle offer and one P&G Everyday coupon to each item you buy. So, if you’re buying three different items, you can use six coupons at once.

Here’s what it looks like if you buy three laundry items and stack a Circle offer with a P&G Everyday coupon on each item:

Buy 1 Gain Flings, 42-count (reg. $11.99)
Use $2/1 – Gain Flings 30-count or larger or Ultra Flings 18-count or larger (P&G)
Buy 1 Downy Liquid Fabric Conditioner, 129-ounce (reg. $9.99)
Use $2/1 – Downy Liquid Fabric Conditioner 72-ounce or larger (P&G)
Use 10% Off – Downy Liquid Fabric Conditioner 81, 103 and 129-ounce (Circle Offer)
Buy 1 Tide Purclean Unscented Liquid Laundry Detergent, 75-ounce (reg. $11.99)
Use $2/1 – Tide Purclean Laundry Detergent OR Antibacterial Spray (P&G)
Use 10% Off – Tide Purclean Laundry Detergent 75, 100 and 105 ounce (Circle Offer)
Use Free $10 Target Gift Card with $30 Laundry Purchase, Target In-App Coupon
Pay $26.41, receive $10 Target gift card
Final Price: $5.47 each, when you buy 3

PRO TIP: Important! Your P&G newspaper and printable coupons will expire within 24 hours. For printable coupons, you’ll have until the end of the day after you print them, so time your shopping trip accordingly.

3. P&G coupon expired? Check the Target app for the same coupon.

You already know that Target Circle percent-off offers are actually store coupons. So, dollar-off Target Circle offers are actually manufacturer coupons.

Here’s a little secret: Manufacturer coupons inside the Target app don’t expire as quickly as they do at So, if you forgot to use your P&G coupon and it’s now expired by a day or so, check the Target app because you might find it there, too.

Recently, I found a Downy Fabric Conditioner coupon at The same coupon was available in the Target app. Both coupons said “$1 off Downy Fabric Conditioner,” but the one in the Target app had an expiration date that was a month down the road, even if you added it to your Wallet. The coupon at expires the day after you print it.

PRO TIP: Use this strategy if you want to wait for your laundry detergent to go on sale at Target and stack it with a manufacturer coupon.


4. Pay for detergent with your Target RedCard for an extra 5% savings on top of coupons.

Target RedCard is a great way to get savings every time you buy laundry detergent. RedCard links to your checking account, so it’s not a credit card. Basically, it’s free 5% savings every time you shop Target.

Sure, it’s not going to get you stock-up prices by itself, but it’ll give you a little extra savings and you won’t hear me complaining!

If you want to level up on your savings, go ahead and apply Target Circle offers or P&G Everyday coupons if you’re paying with your RedCard. You won’t qualify for 1% overall savings with Target Circle if you use your RedCard, but I’d rather have 5% savings overall anyway.

Buy 1 Downy Unstopables In-Wash Fresh Scented Booster Beads, 20.1-ounce (reg. $12.59) $11.99, sale price
Use RedCard for 5% off
Final Price: $11.39

5. Look for promotions that offer a Target gift card when you make a purchase.

You can find “gift card with a purchase” promotions roughly once a week at Target. So, if you don’t see a current gift card promotion, wait a few days and you will.

You’ll notice a lot of variations of this offer, and the most common version is “Buy 3, receive $10 Target gift card.”

Here are examples of “Target gift card with a purchase” promos you might see:

  • Spend $30, receive $10 Target gift card
  • Spend $40, receive $10 Target gift card
  • Spend $50, receive $15 Target gift card
  • Buy 2, receive $5 Target gift card
  • Buy 3, receive $10 Target gift card
Buy 3 NBD Lavender & Rosewood Liquid Laundry Detergent, 105-ounce (reg. $17.99 each)
Spend $50, receive $15 Target gift card
Pay $53.97, Receive one $15 Target gift card
Final Price: $12.99 each, when you buy 3

PRO TIP: Gift card promotions aren’t always just for laundry products, but if you can’t find a laundry gift card promotion, consider saving the gift cards you receive from other Target purchases and use them to buy laundry detergent when you don’t have a coupon on hand.
