RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
Many national retailers have programs that can save you money, but there are many different ways to maximize your savings at Target.
Every time Kathy Swain walks through the doors at Target, she expects big savings. Her skills brought a $95 bill down to $33. Here's how she does it.
Before she left the house, she's gathered manufacturer and Target coupons from newspapers and the Target website. First stop, shampoo and hairspray.
"These are $2.50 off of 1. Good high value coupon," said Swain. "It makes it a dollar."
Four products, four dollars. She does her own matchups but checks in with the blogs for unadvertised deals.
"Krazy Coupon Lady, Hip to Save, Passion for Savings," said Swain.
Then she hits the makeup. Two eyeliners are ten bucks - she saves 10% using Target's new Cartwheel program, plus, "I have a $2 Target coupon and a $2 Revlon coupon," said Swain.
She has two of each. That $4.99 eyeliner just became $0.49.
Cartwheel lets you download 10 to 12 bonus coupons to your smartphone or computer. Coupons and Cartwheel reduce $20 worth of foundation to $5.
"Advil is buy 2, get a $5 gift card," said Swain.
With the triple stack, she will pay one dollar for both. Cheesy Skillets are buy 3 get one free. With coupons, they're half price.
Kathy grabs some juice, breakfast items and frozen vegetables. At checkout, she saves another 5% using her Target red debit card. After scanning her coupons and Cartwheel savings from her phone, Kathy's total drops from $95 to $33.
To use Cartwheel, you need a Facebook account. If you use Cartwheel on a home computer, you can print the barcode and bring it with you. Kathy saved even more using the Ibotta program that refunds money directly to her account for purchasing certain products.
