Target Mobile and Mailer Coupons for Back to School


If you're a huge Target shopper like I am, you'll be glad to know that you can use some nice new coupons for your back-to-school needs!


Starting Sunday August 3rd through August 9th, you’ll be able to score a $5 Target Gift Card with your $25 School Supplies purchase. Just text SCHOOL to 827438 to access the coupon starting August 3rd. This coupon will also be in the Target weekly ad starting August 3rd, if you'd rather not text. Remember to not text until August 3rd as this offer is not available yet.


What's sweeter, you can pair manufacturer’s coupons and Target Cartwheel offers with this Target mobile coupon to save even more! 

There are tons of back to school coupons at the Target site you can pair this mobile coupon offer with. I also found the coupons below for binders, notebooks and hand sanitizers.

* $1/2 Five Star Product coupon
* $2/1 Five Star Binder coupon 
*$1.50 off two Purell items 8 oz or larger


Also, yesterday, I received my Target coupon home mailer with $27 worth of back to school coupons inside, plus a $5 Target gift card coupon with any $75 purchase at Target attached to the back of the mailer! So be in the lookout for this mailer too if you are signed up. Note that not everyone gets these Target coupons in the mail. (Not sure why).

A Fun Summer, Under The Sea Crafts for the Kids + Save Money on Craft Supplies (Craft Store Coupons)



We have had the busiest summer in our family. The boys are enjoying the pool everyday (yes, everyday!) and I know summer vacation may be almost over for some families, but for ours, we're just halfway through it.  We still have so much summer activities coming up: a Disney drive-in movie, the county fair, train rides at the park, the petting zoo, random fireworks and ice cream night in our local baseball stadium, etcetera. Next week we are heading for our mini beach family vacation in Virginia Beach, Virginia and that should be another fun activity - especially for our beach and pool-loving kids! :)

There are other exciting activities coming up for our family after that, but I will talk about it later on a separate post.  And guess what?! It'll be something to do with an exciting giveaway I am hosting here for all of you too, my HMP friends!  More details soon!  (Hint: something to do with a 'birthday party') :)


Speaking of the beach, I was thinking about Under the Sea craft projects for the kids this week.  I found some great ideas on Pinterest and Spooonful. Love the aquarium using paper plate craft pictured above!

Giant Food "Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free" Challenge: Get Giant Food's Own Brands For Free (Through August 3rd)


I admit, there are times when I just don't want to get bothered with coupons when I shop. So if you're anything like me, you'll be glad to know that Giant Food has once again offered the "Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free Challenge" to their customers!  

Read on for more details about this awesome, new money-saving promotion from Giant Food!  


What is  Giant Food's Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free Challenge?

This summer,  Giant Food has once again challenged their customers to put its Own Brands products to the test in the Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free Challenge. During the weeks of June 29 and July 6 and then again the weeks of July 27 and August 3, when customers purchase select national brand products, they will receive Giant Food Own Brands equivalent products for free! This is a great way to try Giant's own brand of products to see how you like them.
 
And what perfect timing! With all the summer travel, family reunions, birthday parties and picnics we are doing (at least for our family!), the products in this summer’s Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free promotion are just what every family need: BBQ sauce, peanuts, pretzels, tortilla chips, lunch meat, fruit juice, crackers, chicken nuggets,  and corn flakes. They  also include health, beauty care and home items  such as sunscreen, laundry pods, tissues and mouthwash - and even diapers!  


To see a complete listing of eligible sale items, just check your Giant in store and in the weekly circular available online at www.giantfood.com .  I'm all about saving money for my family when I go shopping, so to save 10 - 35% by purchasing Giant Food Own Brands instead of the national brand ... what's not to love? :)

Here are the free Giant Food Own Brands products you can get for free beginning July 27th. Just click the image below to see the list better. 


You'll also be glad to know that all Giant Food Own Brands products are subject to a rigorous testing program and that hundreds of Own Brands products have been reformulated in the recent years to improve upon taste and quality, while still offering affordable prices! If a product doesn’t pass these testing requirements, it doesn’t go on a Giant Food shelf!

So just don’t take my word for it—compare them for yourself by taking the Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free Challenge at Giant!
