Hot Coffee deal @Target!

Target: $11.92 spent, $39.92 saved (77%)
I was excited to find these packs of Maxwell House on clearance for $4.32 each (50% off) at my Target store yesterday (especially since I've been on the lookout for good coffee deals for my mom and I). Even better, I earned a $5 giftcard for each set of 3 I bought. I'm hearing most Target stores in the area have lots of these on hand, although at this rate that may not last long! Here's how my deal worked out:

Transaction 1:
  • 3 Maxwell House $4.32 each= $12.96
  • Minus one $1/1 coupon and one $1/2 coupon
  • used $5 giftcard from a previous deal
  • paid $5.96 and received another $5 giftcard

Transaction 2 was merely a repeat. I could have gotten a better deal if I'd had more $1/1 coupons but this still worked out nicely. Another option would be to use a $2 off Maxwell House when you buy Fig Newtons coupon (especially if you like these cookies). My store had these on sale for $2.79. That'd make 3 packs of coffee, 3 packs cookies, and one $5 giftcard only $15.33- that's like $3.45 for each pair of coffee and cookies you buy. Even without coupons, this deal works out to be $7.96 for each set of 3 after giftcard, and that's only $2.66 per can of coffee. (Please note: I do not know when this giftcard promo ends, so you may want to have the cashier check for you.)


  1. There is also a Target printable for $2 wyb 2 that you can stack. I did this yesterday, but on the $6 ones, as my store didn't have the clearance ones.

  2. I read that the gift card offer expired 5/22 :(
