I love the end of every season at Target because they have a ton of stuff on clearance. When you have a ton of clearance merchandise and Target coupons, you can get some great deals. There was recently a news story about Target shorting customers on their coupons: Target's system would automatically adjust down the amount of a coupon if it was worth more than one item. For example, if you had a $2.00 off 2 boxes of cereal coupon and one of those boxes was less than $2.00, Target would only give you the amount of one box. That means when they send in that coupon to the manufacturer, they're getting the full value of the coupon and pocketing the difference. Who knows if they were actually aware of this glitch in their computers, but watch your coupons to make sure they are all taken off because otherwise Target could be making money off of you. Several good coupons expire 8/28, so I've made more trips than normal.
