Target: Cell Phone Coupons

Target is going mobile! Head over here and you can now sign up for Target’s Mobile Coupons to receive exclusive Target store coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer's paper coupons. You'll get the Q's via text message with a link to a barcode that the cashier can scan at checkout. The text messages will be sent on Sunday at the time that you pick, and standard message and data rates apply.

The website doesn't say whether these are additional coupons to the ones already on Target's website or if they're different so I guess we'll have to sign up and find out. The great thing is that the same barcode can be used more than once and you don't have to print them out! (Thanks goodness, because printer ink is expensive!)

Just a comment...I've had "hit or miss" experiences as far as barcodes on my cell phone and DBF's phone. Sometimes they scan and sometimes they don't. I'm not sure they've perfected this technology yet! In all cases where it didn't scan, the cashier just typed in the coupon code. I would highly encourage you to check for coupon apps for your phone - there are some really good ones out there for the iPhone\Touch that can help you organize these. (By the way, Target also has an iPhone app that will help you organize shopping lists, view their ad, etc. )

I have not received my coupons yet. Are they something that you could forward over to me, like a picture message? If so, would you be willing to send it to me? I can send you my # in an email. Thanks!
