Target Secrets


We all know how it goes, go to target for one thing and leave with 30. Sometimes you feel like Target tricked you.. right?! Well, I have done some research and gathered a few tips on how to get the best deal when shopping at Target.


First and foremost, Target has a schedule for what days certain objects get marked down. This means, if you need something, try to visit Target on the day of the week that it is marked down to have a greater selection of sale items.

Markdown Schedule

Monday: Electronics, Accessories, Kids Clothing, Books, Baby, and Stationery

Tuesday: Domestics, Women’s Clothing, Pets and, Market food items

Wednesday: Men’s Clothing, Health and Beauty, Diapers, Lawn/Garden items, and Furniture

Thursday: Housewares, Lingerie, Shoes, Toys, Sporting Goods, Decor and Luggage

Friday: Auto, Cosmetics, Hardware, and Jewelry


Here’s a little secret I just discovered while writing this post..

I recently got the cutest earrings (here) and they were on sale at my local Target for less than 1/3 of the price, but they’re still full price online. So, lesson learned always check the store before purchasing online. However, there are usually more and better options online, and who doesn’t like a package at their door?!

Price Matching 

Not many people know that Target honors price matching. Find an item cheaper in another stores ad and show the cashier to get that price.

Cartwheel App

This one is not-so-much a secret, but it has great deals! I had to actually delete the app soon after I downloaded it because I found myself buying things just because they were on sale. I love saving money so much I was spending money to save it.. if that makes sense. A retailers dream customer right here. lol

Price Tag

If a sale items new price ends in $0.06 or $0.08, it will be marked down again if it is still in stock. Sale prices that end in $0.04 are indicatory that the item is priced at final markdown. I have heard this before and always forget. Another trick of the sale price tag is that the upper right hand corner has a number which tells you the percentage of the markdown. For example, a “50” in the upper right hand corner means the item is 50% off its original price.

We are really about Target lately, and word on the street is they’re bringing a lot of new brands to the store. More on Target to come. 😉

Have a good week,
