16 Secrets for Shopping at Target...

Thanks to reader Cotton Candy for sending me this list from BuzzFeed of "16 Secrets for Shopping at Target".  Most of these I've blogged about in the past (and BuzzFeed actually credits me for tip #16) but here's a rundown:

1 - Target has a daily markdown schedule; click here for the breakdown by day.
2 - The number in the upper right corner of the clearance tag tells you what percentage off the markdown is.
3 - If the clearance price ends in an $0.06 or $0.08, it will probably be marked down again IF there's inventory left in the store.
4 - If the clearance price ends in an $0.04, then it's at final clearance and won't be marked down further.
5 - Target has a limit on the amount of returns you can make in one year, capping out at a max. of $75.
6 - All electronics and entertainment purchases have to be returned or exchanged within 30 days.
7 - Beyond the 5% off the card gives its users, REDcard debit and credit card holders will receive an extra 30 days to return nearly all items purchased with their REDcard at Target and
8 - You can return Target purchases by mail for free; just visit the online return center and print out a prepaid return label, and Target will pay the return shipping fees.
9 - If you find an item in a competitor’s ad, bring it to Target and it’ll match the advertised price.
10 - If you pay with a check, you have to wait 10 days before you can get a refund in cash; otherwise you have to settle for a Target gift card.
11 - Target has mobile coupons available to be sent directly to your phone; you can sign up here.
12 - And the Target app gets 10 or more new coupons each week.
13 - Target also offers their free Cartwheel app, which offers several deals that change weekly and has different ways to save than the their coupon app.
14 - If you find an item on sale that you wish to purchase but the store runs out of stock, you can request a rain check.
15 - At most Target stores, you receive a 5-cent credit for bringing in your own shopping bags.
16 - You can find brand-new Target merchandise at Goodwill.
