Target Deals - 8/26

I headed out to Target tonight because I needed to pick up a reward Cinderella figurine since my daughter has stayed completely dry, even through nap, for the past two days. Plus, I wanted to take advantage of their Quaker Oatmeal deal. As luck would have it, I found the snack bars first and I decided to do the deal twice so I could get the oatmeal, but also some of the snack items.

I had all kinds of issues though. First, despite shelf tags indicating different pricing, the Quaker deal items seemed to all be ringing up at $2.74. Second, when my cashier was checking me out, she didn't complete my first order before scanning my second and I wound up with an extra box of cereal on my first receipt, that was conveniently duplicated on my second order. I visited customer service to have this corrected. I'm always a little frustrated when I have to visit customer service to have something corrected, but I kept my cool - the folks at the customer service desk are cordial and helpful and I always appreciate good customer service.

Here's what I got:

Transaction #1
2 - Quaker Simple Harvest Bars
1 - Quaker True Delights
1 - Quaker Quakes
1 - Quaker Life Cereal

-$1 Quaker Naturals Mfg coupon
-$1 Quaker Life Cereal Mfg coupon
-$1 Quaker True Delights Mfg coupon
-$.50 Quaker Rice Snacks Mfg coupon

Total (after Customer Service corrected mishap) $7.12 OOP. Earned a $5 Gift Card.

Transaction #2
4 - Quaker Instant Oatmeal (10 + 2 bonus packs)
1 - Quaker Capn' Crunch Cereal

-$5 Gift Card from Transaction #1

Paid $8.30 OOP. Earned a $5 Gift Card.

Transaction #3
1 - Up Handsoap
1 - Cinderella (for my princess)

-$5 Gift Card from Transaction #2

Paid $.14 OOP.

Total OOP $15.56 for 4 boxes of Oatmeal, 2 boxes of cereal, 3 boxes of cereal bars, 1 bag of snacks, 1 soap and 1 princess.
