Target gift card deal

This week Target has a great Beauty coupon, where you get a $5 Target gift card, if you spend $20+ on a beauty purchase. FIF dad has been asking for a specific kind of deodorant for a while, but even with coupons they’re expensive. So, I decided to pick up two 3 packs without coupons, some nail polish for a gift and cheap toothpaste to get me over the $20 threshold.  By combining all the different discounts, I was able to get everything for $15.77 including the expensive deodorants that I did not have a coupon for. I also earned a $1 Amazon gift card just by shopping at Target, and my points were pushed over my gift card level at Shopkick as well, which gave me a $5 JCPenney gift card, which I used for gifts at the mall.

I separated my items into two transactions, s I could use the $5 gift card on the rest of my Target purchase.
