Target Deals - 8/28

In need of a few things, we headed out and did some shopping on Sunday evening. I guess it has been a while since I shopped on a Sunday, as I forgot that some stores still close at 6 pm on Sunday. Luckily, Target wasn't one of them. Unfortunately, the transactions at Target were less than easy.
4 - Febreeze Set & Refresh
1 - Febreeze Air Effects

Total $7.50 OOP, earn $5 Target Gift Card. Not too bad getting these items for $.50 each after the gift card. We like the Set & Refresh in our half bath. They provide a nice scent without the need to plug it in.

Unfortunately, despite the ad not specifying limited scents and the shelves seeming to be widely marked with the offer, we managed to grab one that was not included on the deal. I guess when it rang up at $3 instead of $2.50, I should have seen that as a sign. The cashier quickly price corrected in the system, but at the end of the transaction, it didn't prompt her to give me a gift card. A trip to customer service (which of course had a line that was already 3 deep) and a walk back to the air freshener aisle provided the realization that it wasn't included. We had to return and rebuy in order to get the deal. I was glad that it worked in the end, but it really was a lot more effort than it needed to be. I still am not sure why one scent of the Set & Refresh would not be included when essentially every other one was.
