Target Canada: Up to 30% Off Store Wide

Posted by on February 5, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Target Canada: Up to 30% Off Store Wide

As many of you know from Brooke’s post on Tuesday, Target Canada started their Canada wide clearance sale today (in store). I just came back from my local Target store with a couple small purchases and wanted to update you on what we know. Currently, Target Canada is offering up to 30% off the last marked ticket price.

Each section will have clearly marked tags that say what percentage discount you can expect off the last ticket price. Here are just a few I remember:

  • 20% off movies
  • 10% off PS4
  • 10% off Bose
  • 10% off Apple TV
  • 20% off Monster High
  • … and more!

I did not see many items that qualified for the extra 30% discount – and this is a common complaint regarding the sale so far. However, this is the optimal time to shop for best selection. As the discount increases, as it will until Target leaves Canada, the selection will decrease.

Now, the beauty of the discount so far is combining it with sales and clearance items. The extra up to 30% discount comes off the last ticketed price, and that includes all clearance items. For example, I purchased a Monster High doll that was $29.99 regular price. The doll was on clearance, marked at $20.99. Interestingly enough, when I scanned it, it scanned in at $14.99, and with the additional discount came down to only $11.99. While you might not be impressed with an extra 10% or 20% off, combining that discount with clearance items can be quite profitable.

In addition, it also pays to scan. Target stores have scanners scattered around the store where you can scan the barcode of the product yourself. I probably would not have bought the doll I did had it only been an extra 20% off the $20.99 price. However, I scanned the doll and found out that it was actually cheaper than the sticker price. That highly influenced my decision to purchase the doll. If you are purchasing anything on clearance, scan the item to make sure the price is accurate.

I also wanted to mention that this sale is very good for items that never go on sale. Finding a sale on Bose sound systems is rare, so 10% off this prized brand is good. As the PS4 and Xbox One are so new, 10% off those huge gaming consoles is a very good deal as well.

Happy deal hunting!

Black Friday Prices Are Back As We Say Goodbye To Target Canada Stores

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Black Friday Prices Are Back As We Say Goodbye To Target Canada Stores

While some of us may be sad to see Target stores in Canada go, the rest of us are excited about their upcoming liquidation sales. CBC News happened to obtain some internal company emails that have revealed the coming liquidation sales are to start this Thursday. Rumour has it that these liquidation sales will be similar (or possibly even better) than Black Friday prices!

Target Canada expects this Thursday (5th of February) to be like Black Friday. Shoppers who enjoy discounts may flood the stores to get the best deals before they sell out. Target Canada sent this email to few select staff on the 30th of January. Personally, I bought a winter jacket for my son from Target 2 years ago and he still uses it. I am going to head back to Target to see if I can get him the same one for next year.

Thursday will be like Black Friday.

- Target human resourced employee in an email to Target Canada Staff

As we all know, Black Friday last year brought tons of super hot deals. If you missed out and didn’t get to enjoy any of these savings opportunities at Target last Black Friday, now is your chance to enjoy similar price ranges at your local Target store. I know I will definitely check out my local Target for discounts! Some employees have even mentioned that Target Canada stores will still be receiving trucks full of new items. Some of these trucks will include the upcoming Spring apparel items as well as plus sized clothing they keep promising us.

It really does sound like Target will be preparing for this coming weekend. They plans to have “all hands on deck” and every cash register lane open to handle the mass amount of customers. These liquidation sales will run for seven or eight weeks (average). Like usual, I presume the sales will only get hotter as time goes on. Everything must go. They will start with liquidating the merchandise and eventually will have to liquidate the store’s equipment and furnishings. I remember them selling everything at my local Zellers when they closed down. I got a nice jewelry stand to display the crafts I sell.

What do you Moosers think of Target closing up shops in Canada? What sales do you hope to see?

Target Canada 2014 Boxing Day Flyers Out Now! (26-28 Dec In-Store Only)

Posted by on December 22, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Target Canada 2014 Boxing Day Flyers Out Now! (26 28 Dec In Store Only)

Target has just released their Boxing Day sales and they are ripe with deals to be plucked. Deals start in store only on Friday the 26th December and end Sunday the 28th December 2014.

Target has had a rough year here in Canada with its launch as it tried to win over Canadian hearts and pocketbooks. I find it tough because I really want to like this retailer despite not having an online store. Let’s see what they have brought to the table for Boxing Day to win us over.

The first item I see as being worth standing in line at the store for is the Playstation 4 Little Big Planet 3 and NHL 15 Bundle for $449.99 plus $70 gift card for a total of $379. Looking around some of the competitors, most everyone has a version of the PS4 on sale this Boxing Day for $449.99. Walmart, Best Buy and Futureshop all have it bundled with one game. Target has sweetened the deal by adding two games instead of just one. Little Big Planet 3 is a popular game that is retailing for $40 to $70 and NHL 15 for PS4 retails for $70. Stack on top of that the fact that they are willing to give you $70 to come back in their store and you have saved an additional $110 to $140.

The $70 gift card deal is applicable to any PS4 console purchase and that includes the bundle. Supplies are limited so if the PS4 is in your sights, you may want to get there for Target’s 6am opening time on Friday December 26th. If you have nothing in mind for that gift card, Target does have some shelf stable groceries so you could easily shave the money off your grocery bill for the month. I always am able to find something at Target that I both need and don’t need so spending $70 for me never seems to be an issue. One trip down that shoe section is all it takes! Even betteris the fact that they just started carrying TOMS shoes and products, I could easily fill my cart with TOMS.

Another great find is the Kitchenaid 10 Piece Cookware set now at $69.99. You will save 65% on this aluminium cookware set. I know this set personally as it was the first set I purchased when I finally upgraded from my mother’s hand me down pots. Those brown pots I had from mom did the trick while I needed them, but I much preferred the cheery red Kitchenaid set. While not an expensive set and made of aluminium, the set holds up nicely. I would give this to someone going off to university for the first time.

A few more deals that look hot enough to venture into the store for include the video game selection. Select PS4, Xbox, Wii and DS Games on sale for $15, $30 or $45. This includes Halo, Super Smash Brothers, Call of Duty and Destiny in the $45 range. These more popular games normally retail for around $70 so you are saving 35%. If you just got a new system or purchased that PS4 bundle made sure to check out any other deals on games.

Target has a lot of other household goods and electronics on sale. You can tell they’re trying to keep up on the Canadian market. I would give them a second look for my Boxing Day Shopping.

Here’s the full Target flyer!

Target Canada Black Friday Flyer Released!

Posted by on November 27, 2014 at 8:27 PM

Target Canada Black Friday Flyer Released!

Target Canada has released their Black Friday flyer. As to be expected, all the deals are in store but many of them are worth lining up for. You can see the full flyer below, but I have picked out a few deals to highlight as an introduction to the flyer. Deals start tomorrow and doors open at 6 AM!

There are some pretty cool deals in this flyer. Pick up a 40″ Element full HDTV for just $119.99 – original price is not stated. Honestly, I have never seen a 40″ TV for that low so my mind is rather blown.

Have you been waiting to pick up an Xbox then check out this bundle from Target Canada. You get the XBOX Assassin’s Creed Bundle for $50 off and you will receive a $50 Target Gift Card with your purchase. all this for $349.99.

In fact, you can score a lot of Target gift cards when you buy Apple electronics at Target. Check this list out:

  • Active a iPhone 6 – Free $50 Gift Card
  • iPad Mini – Free $60 Gift Card
  • iPad Air – Free $120 Gift Card
  • Apple TV – Free $20 Gift Card

One of the big doorcrashers is the Skylanders Starter Kit for just $44.99, originally $84.99. It should be popular with kids and adults alike. Other video games, including some PS4 games, are going to be just $15, originally $29.99 – $39.99.

For fans of Dre, pick up the Beats Pill portable speaker for just $99. Movies will be starting at just $1.99 each during the Black Friday weekend so you can stock up on winter watching.

For baking, you can pick up a KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer for $199. I always like to see the mixers below the $200 mark as that is about when I can afford to purchase one.

Check out all these deals and more in the flyer below. Deal end times vary, some are for Black Friday only and others are for the weekend.

Target Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

Posted by on October 24, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Target Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

Two printable coupons in one day, what is the Moose coming to! Yes dear Bargainmoosers, we have another fantastic printable coupon for you to take advantage of in your travels. Enjoy 10% off at your local Target Canada on October 25th and 26th with the following printable coupon code.

Note: this printable coupon starts tomorrow.

I frequent Target for one thing and one thing only: kitty litter. They have some of the absolute best deals on Maxx Scoop cat litter, which I use for my cats currently. You can often get a 7kg container for just $4.97 on sale. It totally beats the competition and this printable coupon for 10% off would make the deal even better. We usually load up on six cases of it as we have two large male cats that use a fair bit of litter as you can imagine.

Last time we were in Target Canada, I ended up picking up a Blu-Ray movie for just $10! I found The Great Gatsby with sweetheart Leonardo DiCaprio staring as Gatsby. I watched that movie originally on a place and thought it was visually stunning – a real treat. I could not believe the price so I had to pick it up.

There is a limit of one coupon per person. The exclusions are as follows:

Excludes all rain checks, purchases at Target Mobile and Brunet affiliated pharmacies in Québec, prescriptions and certain other pharmacist-dispensed items, gift cards and prepaid cards, and all Apple and Bose products.

They also reserve the usual right to refuse coupons, to limit quantities within reason, and the usual fine print that covers their butts.

I am seriously stoked about this offer because we so rarely blog about Target Canada. They do not have an online presence yet in the cold damn north, and they very rarely have nation-wide offers in store that we can share. That is why this printable coupon is so thrilling.

I wanted also to mention their REDcard while I am blogging about Target. Sign up for a REDcard with Target Canada and receive 5% off daily purchases. You will also receive a one-time 5% off coupon good for an additional 5% off. If you are a REDcard member, this printable coupon should stack on top of your usual 5% off savings.

For this and any future Target.ca coupons, visit our forum.

Target Canada: $25 off PS4 Games! (In-Store)

Posted by on February 1, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Target Canada: $25 off PS4 Games! (In Store)

Go to your local Target and kiss the first employee you see right on the mouth! Or smile at them and nod politely. Then go get PS4 games for $35 at Target Canada!

The deal is on the first page of the flyer.

Aaaargh! I’m so mad! I’m super poor right now (actually, I always am, it’s just worse right now) and I really want to spend money on video games. I probably shouldn’t though. For all you PS4 owning people with video game money in the budget right now, make sure you head on out to Target and see what they have for sale.

It says selected titles and has three games in the flyer but I’ve heard it’s every game. Not 100% sure though. Regardless, the three games they have in the flyer are:

  • Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag
  • Battlefield 4
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall

All the games are $25 off the usual $59.99. You’re picking these up for $34.99. That’s a fantastic deal for brand new console games! If I had the money right now I’d instantly pick up a copy of Battlefield 4 but I’m the dummy who made a budget. Darn me and my responsibility.

Target Canada: iPod Touch 4th Gen – 16GB Only $130 (Save $70)

Posted by on November 29, 2013 at 10:15 AM

Target Canada: iPod Touch 4th Gen   16GB Only $130 (Save $70)

Get one of the best personal computers, music players, video players and handheld game machines out there in the Apple iPod Touch for only $129.99 from Black Friday at Target Canada! This deal is in-store only.

I sometimes pass up deals like this because I’m a tech guy. If I was going to buy an iPod Touch, I’d go for the best I could get. It’s not that the fifth generation iPod Touch is that much better than the fourth generation, I’m just a maniac. Normal people (you’re normal, right?) don’t care about the differences between the two devices. This iPod Touch still plays music, plays video, lets you get on the internet and play all the games and apps you love, and right now you get it for only $129.99 at Target. These things are normally $200, so you’re saving $70.

I think the best use case for this is either for a kid, or someone who hates smartphones. It’s great for kids because you can buy them cheap games or get free ones, you can load video on it, they can listen to their music and you never have to worry about an $800 text message bill. It’s primarily for games, though. Tons of people are giving these to their kids instead of a Nintendo 3DS or a Sony PS Vita. As for people who hate smartphones, it seems like most people I know who don’t like smartphones just don’t see a need to pay for data. They want a phone that “phones”, and that’s it. Most of them “ooo” and “aaaah” over a cool app or whatever on my phone. They can get the cool apps, movies, music and all that stuff on this device, and never have a monthly fee. Their phone can still do phone things, and their iPod Touch can be smart.

These are going to sell fast, so if you are reading this and want it, go get it now. That’s right, leave your job as an air traffic controller or EMT and go get it. Not really, but really, go get it.

Target Canada: $50 Gift Card With Nintendo 3DS XL Purchase

Target Canada: $50 Gift Card With Nintendo 3DS XL Purchase

Ever feel like you should be rewarded for buying video games? Target does too, so that’s exactly what they’re doing!

I don’t often include stuff from Target for two reasons. You can’t shop online in Canada, and there is no Target store where I live. A couple of years ago, Target bought a bunch of leases from Zellers and started putting in their own stores, but all of the ones near me are still under construction.

For all the people who do have a Target nearby, you should definitely wander in and check out this deal. When you purchase a Nintendo 3DS XL you will get a $50 gift card. You can use it for a game to go with your new console or an accessory. You can even use it for a completely non-video game related purchase, but that isn’t nearly as fun! The handheld costs $199.99.

There is no shipping as it is in store only.

Target Canada REDcard: Get 5% Off All Your Target Purchases

Posted by on February 23, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Target Canada REDcard: Get 5% Off All Your Target Purchases

Target Canada is now offering the Target REDcard, a debit or credit card that will get you 5% off all your Target purchases. The credit card also gets you rewards points on purchases outside of Target and on Target gift cards.

I am crazy excited about getting a Target store less than five minutes from my house. I shopped there once on a trip to the States and was really happy with my experience. My son just liked the popcorn. My only wish would be that they sold $5 bottles of wine at our local Target, like they do in the U.S., but I’m thinking that is not going to happen.

What the REDcard debit card is, is a debit card that only works at Target stores. It connects with your regular debit card and gets you a 5% discount on your eligible purchases using a pre-authorized debit system. The credit card is an actual RBC Mastercard that you can use anywhere, but gets you a 5% Target discount, plus $0.50 back for every $100 you spend when you use it elsewhere. You are subject to an application approval, as with any banking or credit procedure. The credit card has no annual fee and it offers purchase security and extended warranty insurance.

You will not get a discount on the following:

  • Prescriptions and certain other pharmacist-dispensed items
  • Target gift cards and Target prepaid cards
  • Previous purchases
  • Target RBC MasterCard credit account payments
  • Target Debit Card cash back and cash advances with the Target RBC MasterCard
  • Where otherwise prohibited by law

This sounds like a great deal, because you don’t pay anything, you just shop and get rewarded! You can’t argue with being rewarded for shopping. I’m definitely applying!
