You can save big money at Target when you use Target coupons and apply some shopping strategies that help you find hidden deals. Use these Target shopping tips to get amazing bargains and deep discounts.

There are two main ways to save at Target. The first is using Target coupons. The second way to save money at Target is to take advantage of hidden sales.

Both ways to save have pros and cons. You are more likely to be able to spot great deals when you use coupons, but so will everyone else, which means that your local Target store may run out of a product before you can get a chance to take advantage of the bargain.

Hidden deals are harder to find and not as plentiful as deals with coupons, but not only will you actually have a better chance to take advantage of them, but in some cases, the savings can be huge.

Target Coupons

Target publishes coupons on their website that can be used on products in their store only. You can go online and print these coupons (or print them right in the store at one of the shopping kiosks). You can also find Target coupons in the Sunday coupon inserts on occasion.

Take these Target coupons and match them up with manufacturer coupons for the same product. This is called stacking. You can stack a store coupon with a regular coupon for double savings.

Target also has a travel or sample size section of products. Many times coupons don’t specify size. Apply your coupon to travel, sample or individually sized products, and you will probably walk out of the store with these products for free.

Hidden Deals

Hidden deals at Target come in many forms. Sometimes you can find great deals in Target by doing a little perimeter perusing. Perimeter perusing is the practice of going around the outside of the store looking at products hidden on the inside end caps.

Target clearance items will be marked with a red sticker. Now here is the hidden part: often the discount on these items is greater than the clearance sticker indicates. You’ll have to scan the item to see its real price.

Speaking of scanning, some Target stores feature amazing deals on high-end items, but these discounts are never announced. You might find something at 75 percent off without any indication that it has been put on clearance. Not all stores will discount the same items, either. This makes these hidden deals really hard to find.

The only real way to find them is to scan items that you are interested in and pay attention to blogs and forums that post hidden Target deals.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
