Get a Target RedCard and snag a $40 off $40 Target coupon

Sign up for a Target RedCard (through 7/25/20) and if you're approved, you'll get a coupon for $40.00 off a $40.00 purchase. It takes almost no time at all to sign up, and it pays.  It pays a lot. 

Besides that high-value $40.00 coupon, here are the benefits:

  • 5% off EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME.  Whether you shop in-store or online. That's 5% off the top without lifting a finger. 

  • Free shipping on Target.com.  All the time, not just pre-holiday. No minimum purchase.  (Without the RedCard. there is a $35 minimum purchase for free shipping.)

  • Get an extra 30 days to return a Target purchase.

  • No annual fee for either the RedCard credit card or debit card.

Those are "official" benefits. Here are my personal reasons for getting a Target RedCard"

  • You can get either a credit card or a debit card.  The advantage of the debit card is that there is no hard credit check pull on your name; they just hook it right up to your checking account.  With a RedCard debit card, you never have to deal with a bill.

  • You will get special offers and coupon in the mail, including some for free items.  Periodically (especially around the holiday season), Target will run "RedCard only" promotions that are truly amazing. 

  • If you get a Target Debit card, you can withdraw up to $40 cash at checkout per day.  Between this feature and being able to deposit checks on my iPhone, I don't even remember what the inside of a bank looks like any more.  What's a bank?  Seriously, this is a huge timesaver for me. 

And now for a limited time, through July 25, 2020 only, if you sign up for a RedCard, Target will send you a one-time use $40.00 off $40.00 coupon.  And yes, this is in addition to the 5% off that you'll get with your RedCard.  By the way, there are a few restrictions on the coupon use, so do read the fine print.

LOWEST PRICE: Osem Mini-Croutons for $1.11 each shipped on Amazon


Here we go again.  Another disreputable vendor. 
I ordered this and received a box from Walmart with ONE canister of croutons in it.  Crazy.  I immediately requested a refund from Amazon and got it right away.  They told me to keep the canister of croutons.  If this is what you receive, make sure you request a refund immediately. 

The above email is what I received after sending a scathing note to the vendor, Emex Values.




Amazon has got this 12-count pack of 14.1 oz. Osem Mini Croutons for $13.37 ($1.11 each!) with free shipping, the lowest recorded Amazon price on this item.  Please note delayed shipping times (about 2 weeks). No quantity limits.

I keep reading the item description over and over, because I'm looking for the catch.  I've never seen such an insanely low price for these mini-croutons, not in the store nor online.

This year, due to social distancing, 7-Eleven is cancelling 7/11 Day and giving away a free medium-size Slurpee on any day in July, through their 7Rewardsapp.  Details are here.

Highly-rated Boogie Bottom Diaper Rash Spray for $5.84 on Amazon

My niece, Ayelet, told me about this terrific product.  Amazon has got this 1.7 oz. bottle of Boogie Bottom Diaper Rash Spray for $8.99 but when you stack the online $1.80 coupon with maximum Subscribe & Save discounts, you'll pay just $5.84 per bottle

If you've ever diapered a squirmy baby with a bad diaper rash, you know how difficult it is to put on diaper rash cream with your hand, secure the baby so he doesn't squirm or roll off the changing table, wash your hands, and then go back to finish changing and dressing the baby.  This diaper rash cream spray is a no-touch product; you just spray it on your baby's bottom and put the diaper on and you're done. Tishe spray also resolves any issues of spreading a cream or ointment on Shabbos (though of course consult your own halachic authority), since you are just spraying on a liquid.  

Each bottle contains about 200 sprays.  It contains zinc oxide, which is one of the best ingredients for combating diaper rash. It's also free from any fragrances, dyes or parabens.  It got 4.6 out of 5 stars over 660 customer reviews. 

The online $1.80 coupon (make sure you "clip" it!) is supposed to be good for the first Subscribe & Save order only, but I used it on five separate Subscribe & Save orders I put through for this products, and Amazon honored the coupon each time.  

Because I had five deliveries in one month, I snagged the 15% Subscribe & Save discount and paid $7.64 - $1.80 coupon = $5.84, which is probably the lowest price you'll ever see for this premium product (which generally sells for about $10.00).

(FYI, if you have an HSA or an FSA, this is an eligible product. I paid for it with my HSA debit card!)
