    The Suave deal did not work on the $1.99 items in Northern KY. The $5.00 gift card only applied to the Suave items that were $2.98. So be aware that this deal doesn’t work at all stores.

      My target printed out a $2 off 2 suave professionals catalina after my first transaction. So I went thru again with 4 more bottles, using the catalina. I got another gc and cat with this purchase as well. No wonder my first target was sold out of the $1.99 bottles!!

      I have two targets in my area. The first target I was at, did not have a sign for the $1.99 ones being part of the deal, so I ended up getting the ones for $2.84. I went to the other one tonight, and saw it was offering the $5 gift card deal with the $1.99 product . I was upset !

    Can I just ask how your able to keep using the same mobil coupons? I used mine and it says redeemed…..can you it use more than once? Thanks :)

    • Gretchen says

      I had 3 different text offers (SAVVY, JULY4, FRESH) that I’ve used the last 3 weeks. This week I used the last fruit/vegetable offer I had. I hope that makes sense.

    I live in Northern Ky and shopped at the Target in Florence today. I got the Suave GC deal by buying the shampoo and conditioner at $1.99. I’m not sure what store Marianne shopped at but, it did work for me.

  4. Marie says

    My target did not have the $1.99 Suave as part of the deal. All the others were $3.49. And two stores were sold out of any Suave that was part of it anyway. Oh well, another deal will come along.

    • Tammy says

      The target coupons say “one coupon or offer per guest” do they not have a problem with you using two like coupons? This is in regards to the right guard deal. Thanks getting ready to head to target today.

    The Apple Valley, MN Target only had the tags on the $2.97 and up Suave items. The $1.99 Professionals (silver bottle, not gold bottle) did not appear to be part of the deal. Too bad, I prefer the silver ones.

  6. Tracy Sheridan says

    Went to target….

    Professional suave line is 2.89 ea
    The reg suave line is 1.99 but no $5 gift card or coupon with those
    Also no clearance on sunscreen- just sake price of $7

  7. Tracy Sheridan says

    When I went to target, the suave professional line isn’t 1.99 its 2.89- the 1.99 line does not have $5 gift card incentive, nor can u use the coupons, so it ended up being a extra $4 by the time you bought 4 of them.

    Also, the sunscreen at our target was not on clearance, but was $6-7 sale price, still a good deal with $5 coupon and target coupon

    Just thought I would update…
