    The HCW owners would not allow the generator to exist here if it were not ethical to use it. They have been very careful to make sure that the only coupons we put in the generator are coupons that were a) officially released to the public by Target and b) not print-number restricted. Using the coupons from the generator is no different than printing multiples of the coupons when they are first released and then holding on to them during the four weeks they are valid.

    We grab the images once from the Target site when they first come out. I would advise against asking the store. Their default answer will be no, you can not print them from any site other than target.com. There's no other answer they can give since they do not control any site other than target.com.

    Manuf coupon with another store's logo.....

    I could not find this specific answer on this tread, so I'm hoping someone knows the answer.

    I see in the Target FAQ that they will not accept coupons from other retailers. I'm assuming that means, for example, a Walgreens coupon (or a coupon that specifies good only at a specific store). What about coupons that specifiy "manufacturer coupon", but then have a logo from another store, but do NOT say that they can only be redeemed at said store?

    Case in point: I'm looking at some coupons for Brita filters; they say "manufacturer coupon" at the top, but there is a logo from Publix on the coupon, although no where does it say "redeemable ONLY at Publix". Can I use this at Target?

    Thanks!

    I think YMMV. I've successfully used MQs which have another store's logo at Target (case in point the Vitamin Water printable which had the Ralph's logo). But I first went to the customer service counter and asked them. I showed them the Q and that it read "Manufacterer's Coupon". They accepted it. But the difference there is that it didn't say "redemmable ONLY at x". I think those words bind the legal use of the coupon to the store where it can be redeemed.

    That's what I was thinking. I also used those Vitaminwater coupons without incidence, because they were not restricted to redemption at Ralph's only. The coupon I question I would have to buy on eBay, so I don't want to pay for it if there is a chance I can't use it!!

    Thank you for your reply!

    Ok I went to Target with a q for 2 off any 2 caress excl.tahitian renewal and I got tons of the trial sized soaps. I have already went to 2 diff Targets and the cashiers jsut manually adjusted the prices. Well when I went back today I had a new cashier and she verified w someone else and then she said I could not use them. Then I said why I have been using them all day and everyone just adjust's the price. She then called another girl form some office ( iam guessing someone in charge) so she looks over the coupon for 10 min (JK) and then says well its a family dollar q I said it says man q then blah blah blah. I told her they had been adjusting the price on the q and she said ...how? (omgosh.. r u kidding me..? u work here u should know) They just enter in into the screen..duh? Anywho she then pulled the one purchase per q card and I said ok I will do all seperate transactions..she said we cant do that ...uugghhh ok give me q back.....
    Who is right here? I am calling corporate tomorrow. I even told her you are getting full value back on the q and I am the one losing out..
    btw I was getting the trial sized caress for 99 or the bodywash for 97. please help thanks

    I searched this thread and didn't see anything on this so here is my question, do you pay tax on items that have had price adjustments? I had a coupon for 2.00 off of the renu lens cleaner which cost 1.52. The cashier adjusted the price down on this and several other items. I couldn't figure out if I had to pay tax on these or not. Also, I used to get overages on coupons used on trial size items like the Tylenol coupon that says on any Tylenol. The cashier price adjusted that from 1.00 off to .97 off on that and other trial items. Don't they usually give overage since I had bought other things so I wasn't getting money back? Isn't Target being reimbursed for the coupon value and not the price adjusted value? Any information on price adjustments and if you pay tax on the original price (before coupon is used) would be helpful. Thanks!

    Whether you pay tax on the pre or post coupon amount is state dependent. In Georgia, store coupons decrease our taxable amount, but manufacturer coupons do not. I think it's the same in Florida, but I'm not positive.

    Overage isn't guaranteed. Yes, they'll get the full $1 back even if the item was only $0.97. The coupon policy says, "We can't give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item; in this case, we're able to adjust the value of the coupon to equal the price of the item." Some interpret that to mean no overage, regardless of whether you have other items in your order to absorb it while others interpret it to mean you get the overage as long as your transaction total doesn't go negative. When I've asked manufacturers about it in the past, they've told me it's up to the store to decide what happens to the overage. We see a wide range of experiences at Target. Some folks get overage 100% of the time with no issues, others get their coupons adjusted, others have their coupons denied.

    I agree about the overage the first few time I got my Caress every q was scanned at face value and then the last one would not take cause they would have owed me..:) I should have used a filler,but after the first 2 times they manually adjusted each q for the price of the items and then I paid tax.

    Target return on something I used a q for

    Can someone tell me what to expect. I bought a $35 item and used a $10 MQ with it. If I need to return this item, how will it be handled by CS?

    Re: Target return on something I used a q for

    You should be refunded the full amount of $35.

    I am not really sure where to ask this question,so here goes. Can you use a B1G1 and another for a $ amount off at the same time at Target for 2 of the same items? I really do not want to be embarrassed at the store if they are just going to tell me no.

    I purchased the glade glass holder but didn't use the refill coupon b/c I didn't like the scents they had.

    Could I got back with my receipt and get the refill free anyway?

    Printing question about the Target e-centives coupons...

    Is it the same like bricks or smartsource where you can backspace and print 2?
    If so, when do you know it's safe to go back and refresh - so that you don't get the messege saying you have already printed your allowable max?

    thanks!!!

    I've never done it that way, not sure if it would work like bricks. I always go back to coupons and find the coupon if I need to print it again.

    the target q-policy says if the q amount is higher than the sale price, the q will be adjusted so there should not be any overage?


    Q: Can I use a coupon for more than the value of the product (e.g. a $1 coupon on a $0.97 item)? Do I get overage?
    Yes and maybe. See the email on Target's coupon policy. The cashier should adjust the coupon value down to match the item price. Sometimes the register will recognize a Target coupon and adjust it down automatically. Sometimes the register will automatically take off the full value of a manufacturer's coupon.

    Correct. Target's "official" policy is no overage. With that being said, most Target coupons will automatically adjust down to the item price. However, the manufacturer's coupons have to manually be adjusted...so YMMV. Some cashiers will just K1 it through, some will tell you they cannot adjust them & try to reject them altogether and some will manually adjust them down.

    HTH.

    The policy on their website is a little more current than that e-mail now. Two relevant items:

    • Coupon amount may be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.

    • We can't give cash back if the face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of the item.
    Overage is not guaranteed, but the HCW stand is that it's not specifically
    prohibited. HCW allows discussion because the guidelines say, "Coupon amount *may* be reduced..." not that it will or should be. They also use the term "cash back" which some people interpret to mean that as long as your transaction is net positive, it's within the terms of Target's coupon "guidelines".
