Target Savings

So Cutie Husband and I went to Target, and had a few coupons in mind for use.  We ended up not using all of them because we forgot for some reason (long day!), and the cashier was in a bit of a grumpy mood, so she overlooked one of our coupons that we didn't notice until we left, but the savings were still great!
 Boy!  What a deal this was!  The Magic cards were a splurge for Cutie Husband, one of his hobbies.  Even with those and without one of our coupons, it was still pretty cheap!
So here's what we got:

Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner:  Cost $12.99
We used:
$7.00 off printable coupon
Coupon for $5 gift card with purchase of this product
Final (technical) price: $.99

Two Gillette Body Washes:  $1.99 each, $3.98 total
We used:
$4/2 coupon
Final price:  FREE

Satin Care Shaving Cream:  $.99
We used:
$.55/1 coupon
Final price:  $.44

We bought the Scrubbing Bubbles Foaming Cleaner, and we were going to use a coupon for $1.50/2 Scrubbing Bubbles products, but this was the coupon the cashier gave back to us.  Had we used that, instead of being $2.99, our foaming cleaner would have been $1.49.  We're going to take our receipt and coupon back another day and try to have them credit us.

Essentially, for the Scrubbing Bubbles Foaming Cleaner, we paid $2.99, full price!  Ugh!

The Magic cards were $3.99 each for a total of $7.98

Our total at the register (we split the order in two to use our $5 gift card, so this is all inclusive for both orders) was:   $35.23
We paid, out of pocket:   $14.48 (if we'd been able to use our other coupon, we'd only have paid $12.98, and without the Magic cards, our total would have been $26.55, and our out of pocket expense would have been $5.80 without the extra $1.50 coupon, $4.30 WITH the coupon!  What a deal!)
