Stack 'em Up - Target Mobile Coupons
A while back, I posted about stacking coupons as a way to increase your savings. One way of doing this, is using Target Mobile Coupons, which are different from those you are able to print directly from the Target website.
Visit the Target Mobile Coupon website (scroll down to coupon alert). Enter your cell number, and you will be sent special coupon offers twice a month, via text. It took a few days for my first set of coupons to show up. The message from Target will include a list of all available coupon offers. It will also include a barcode, which the cashier will scan when you wish to apply a coupon. These mobile coupons are considered Target store coupons, and so can be stacked with manufacturer coupons. You are able to use one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon per item. Each mobile coupon may only be used one time per phone, though you could have them sent to multiple phones within your household.
No smart phone? No problem. I don't have one either. You can still receive the coupon texts from Target. You will be sent a URL, which you can type into your computer. Either print the page and bring it to the store, or pull the web page up on an i-pod and bring the i-pod with you. This is what I did today.
Here is a look at the coupon stacking I did today, using Target Mobile coupons.
