There are clearance sections displayed throughout the store, usually on the aisle end caps. I frequently browse the clearance section at my local target, and find deals sometimes as high as 90% off! In addition to the in-store clearance sections, Target also has an online clearance section.

  1. Stack Your Coupons

Unlike many department stores, Target allows their customers to stack their coupons on their purchase. Take advantage and don't be shy to do so! This includes store coupons, rewards and other additional bonuses.

Target is famous for its Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals. On Black Friday, Target has its biggest sale of the year. This year Black Friday deals started in the beginning of November. Every week new deals are listed. You can check out their weekly deals at Target.com. Cyber Monday is one of the last times of the year to score great deals. So if you missed Black Friday, you are still in luck with Cyber Monday.

By Making a purchase of $35+ you are eligible for free shipping. Of course if you use the Target Red Card, you will be eligible for free Shipping without a minimum purchase.

Target Drive Up is probably my most favorite hack from this store. It is a free method to receive your online order. All you have to do is make a purchase using your app. It will notify you when your order will be ready. You can then drive down to the store and a representative will deliver your order to your car.
