Target: FREE John Frieda Full Repair Foam + Profit!

by Jess on June 6, 2011

John Frieda Full Repair Root LiftIf you got lucky and scored a hot $5/1 John Frieda Full Repair coupon in your Smart Source insert yesterday (6/5), you’ll be able to take advantage of an awesome deal over at Target this week where you’ll earn a $5 Target gift card with purchase of any three John Frieda Products:

Deal Idea:
Buy (3) John Frieda Full Repair Protecting Lift Foam | $5.99 each
- $3/2 John Frieda Full Repair Target printable store coupon (it was also in the Beauty Mailer too)
and use (3) $5/1 from SS 6/5
Pay: $0, receive a $5 Target gift card
Final Price: ALL FREE + $5 Profit!

Keep in mind that if you do plan to do this deal you’ll need to make sure you have at least $7.03 in other merchandise in your cart due to the gift card glitch. Most stores have fixed that whole mess but if you can avoid the headache, I’d plan to do this deal when you have other items you need to get too.

(Thanks, Totally Target)

I just got back from my Target and must say it was one of the most horrible experiences I have had using coupons and taking advantage of the gift card deal (I wish I would have read about the “Target glitch” before going to do this deal). I went to get the John Frieda buy 3 get a $5 gift card deal and thought everything was going to go smoothly (I’ve only been using coupons for a month). At the register the cashier scanned my 3 products, I handed her over the (3) $5/1 John Frieda MQ and (1) $3/2 John Frieda TQ. The balance came to $2.97 this wasn’t the total that I was expecting so I asked her if she rang up all the Q’s including the TQ and she said one of the MQ was not ringing up at all, because I had to many coupons and not enough items to use them on. She called over her supervisor for help and the sup told me that I couldn’t use all 3 MQ in the same transaction, she said the only way she could take the MQ was if I purchased the items in separate transactions! After going back and forth explaining how coupons work, how to stack a TQ with a MQ, showing them their own coupon policy, and many other things, I stopped wasting my breathe and asked to speak with someone above the supervisor. When the supervisor told me she was the only one to solve this, I asked to speak with the store manager. They had me waiting for about 30 minutes before the supervisor (not store manager) came back down again and said that she will let it go this time and allow me to use 3 MQ on the 3 items in 1 transaction “this time” , but that they weren’t supposed to (no where on the MQ did it say “per transaction” this girl had no clue what purchase and transaction meant). Anyways the computer still would not allow the MQ to go through for $5 each, the first 2 went through fine but the 3rd MQ and the TQ would not go through. At this point I gave up… I was tired, my back was killing me (6 months preggo) and the cashiers and supervisor did not have a clue as to how to enter the coupons or by-pass this “glitch”. I came home checked your deal again and saw the link to the “gift card glitch”. I wish I would have caught it earlier before going for this deal. I will try again tomorrow.

Do you think I should print the comments page out and show them just how many people in different areas are having the same problems with the gift card deals or should I just use your calculation and try the deal over again without going back to the supervisor and sharing with her the information about the glitch?
