When Target goes right!

So I've been stalking the Targets around me for 2 or 3 specific deals, but with 0 luck. I decided I'd check the one by work last night, just in case, and tada! They had 2 of the 3 deals I was looking for!

Here's a picture of my first trip:

5 apple-cinnamon Glade scented oil candle tins, 1 apple-cinnamon refill, 1 bayberry spice refill, 3 gingerbread refills, 2 packs of Tim Tams (yes, an unexpected find, and definitely not a planned purchase!), and 1 bottle of Alba after-sun lotion, in preparation for our possible Caribbean trip in a couple weeks.

How much did I pay for all that? $9.03+tax! And I earned 2 $5 Target gift cards!!! However, the cashier entered the coupons wrong, so I should have paid $16.48+tax. I mentioned the coupon error a couple times, but she still entered it the way that saved me more money.
Here's how it works:
- Alba lotion was 50% off = $6.48
- Tim Tams were $2.50 each = $5
- 5 candle tins (get the holiday scents, not the regular scents) @ $2.50 each = $12.50
use 5 $1.50 coupons found inside the tins = -$7.50
Get a $5 giftcard for buying 5 holiday scent candles (ofer valid until 12/16)
- 5 candle refills (again, get the holiday scents) @ $2.50 each = $12.50
use 5 "buy candle holder/tin, get a refill pack free" coupon = -$12.50. Those can be found on, or in the 11/1 SS coupon insert.
this is where the cashier entered $3.99 instead of $2.50 for each coupon, and I got MAJOR overage
Get a $5 giftcard for buying 5 holiday scent refills (offer valid until 12/16)

So if you just buy the candles and not the extra stuff I have, you should pay $5, and get 2 $5 giftcards back. A $5 money maker! But wait, it gets even better!! Go here to download free holiday music when you buy the candle holiday scents (Bayberry Spice, Peppermint Crush, Holiberry Wreath, Homemade  Gingerbread).
But wait! There's more! Great, I feel like an informercial now... :-) you can also submit your receipt for a $5 rebate when you buy 3 candles (up to 3 submissions per address).

Pretty neat, huh?

And now, here's a picture of my second trip:

6 500ml Smart Rinse bottles of mouthwash. Those are the bonus packs, with 65 3oz Dixie cups included with each mouthwash. I love this mouthwash, because it's alcohol-free, so it doesn't sting like the regular Listerine does.

Total for this trip? $8.97+tax, and I also earned 2 $5 Target giftcards! I looked everywhere for that mouthwash, and finally found it in the checkout lane. Guess it balances out all the candy they have there?

Here's how it works:
- get 6 mouthwash+free cups @ $3.99 each = $23.94
use 3 B1G1 coupon from the 8/2SS = - $11.97
use 3 $1 coupon from the 3/15 SS, 6/14 SS or 10/4 RP
get a $5 giftcard when you buy 3 Listerine products (offer valid until 11/22)
You could pay with the $5 giftcards you got for the Glade candles, and end up paying $0 OOP, still have a few cents left on your GC, and receive $10 back! I love spending nothing, and getting stuff I'll use!

Thanks Golden!
