Tonight, December 15th, marked the very last day of the glade/gift card deals at Target. I had been stashing my coupons away WAITING for this day- to unload a stack of coupons and get back, in return a heaping pile of gift cards. Since it is a Monday, we were in Ann Arbor, so we hit up the AA Target first. Here's what happened:
15 separate transactions (for every 4 glade products, 1 $5.00 gift card):
4 glade products- each 2.50
4 2.50 off any glade product
Total OUT OF POCKET: thirty cents!!!!!!!
SO $.30 x 15= $4.50
Profit of $75.00 in gift cards
I was beaming, as I triumphantly walked out of Target with 2 huge bags of air fresheners!! :) I thought I was done for the night, but as I explained my profit to Ryan, he got all into it and was like "Lets swing by Target in Jackson to do it again!" I had about 20 coupons left so we could do 5 more transactions, making 25 more bucks in gift cards. So off I went into Target AGAIN to load up... but this time, at the Jackson Target, they didn't have enough of the plug-ins, so I had to buy the refills which were 4.50... I was wondering how this was going to work out- because I did have some buy one get one free coups, but the majority of my coups. were the 2.50. So I figured it out that I would buy three plug ins and one refill- what a deal- somehow this is how it worked out:
3 plug ins- $2.50
1 refill- $4.50
1 buy one get one free coup-
Apparently the cash register not only decided to give me the refill for FREE, but also decided that I should get $1.45 back in change... YES, you read that right- I received $1.45 BACK!!!! HOW THE HECK???? NO CLUE. Ryan and I have gone over the receipts- he thinks it was a computer glitch or something... but anyways I ended up making 25 more bucks PLUS $7.25 in cash- weird huh??? But completely awesome!
So now I have 100 bucks in Target gift cards :) I spent $4.50 in Ann Arbor and got back $7.25 in Jackson, so Target paid me $2.75 plus about 80 air fresheners for a hundred dollars!!!! Pretty amazing, huh? :)
