Did you happen to notice this page of your Target ad today? It’s advertising that we’ll get a FREE $5 Gift Card for Buying a 3-Pack of Crest Toothpaste or a 3+1 Pack of Oral-B Toothbrushes for $5.99! I didn’t post this deal before now, largely because it sounded too good to be true.. and sure enough, it was a misprint. Here’s how the in-store signage reads…
Target is not required to honor mistakes made in print ads, and this morning people were being denied by the masses of this deal. It was intended to be Buy THREE and get a $5 Gift Card. (FYI – these are not on the toothpaste aisle, they are in the back of the store in the ‘value’ pack section.)
HOWEVER… as of this afternoon, SOME Targets have decided to HONOR their mistake. I went to Target myself and tested the deal. I scanned one of my 3-packs just to check the price, and it did pop up and say FREE $5 Gift Card with purchase. I would recommend that you do the same before making your way to the register. As soon as my cashier scanned the one 3-pack, it prompted her to give me a $5 Gift Card. Since it worked, I handed her 3 more boxes! Here’s your deal…
BUY (1) 3-Pack Crest Toothpaste – $5.99 Each
USE: $1/1 Crest Toothpaste, exp. 5/31/13 (P&G 04/28/13)
Pay $4.99, Get Back $5 Target Gift Card
I actually purchased all 4 of mine in the same transaction. I paid $20.28 including tax, and walked out with $20 in Gift Cards. The nice part was that I was only charged tax on the amount before coupons, but LESS the gift cards… I only paid tax on $3.96? I’m not sure if that’s how it’s supposed to work or not, but I was thrilled! I got 12 tubes of my favorite toothpaste for $0.28!
If you’re looking to do the toothbrushes, you can do this… (I only saw the Indicator variety at my store)
BUY: (2) Oral-B 3+1 Pack Toothbrushes – $5.99 Each
USE: $1/1 Oral-B Pulsar, 3D White, Pro-Health or Complete or (2) Indicator or Cavity Defense Toothbrushes, exp. 5/31/13 (P&G 04/28/13)
Pay $10.98, Get Back (2) $5 Gift Cards
= $0.49 Each ($0.12 per toothbrush)
The signs on this say that this deal is supposed to run through 5/18. I’m not sure what they’re going to do… I can’t imagine that they would give away free toothpaste for 3 weeks. I would go quickly while we know it’s still working! SCAN IT at the red scanner… before you hit the checkout!
