If you shop at Target often and print coupons from Target.com on a regular basis, you’ve probably noticed that Target.com offers store coupons and manufacturer coupons online. The tricky part about their online coupons is that it’s hard to tell which coupons are Target store coupons or manufacturer coupons until AFTER you’ve printed them.
Since I receive quite a few emails from you wondering how to distinguish between the two types of coupons, I was happy to discover that there actually is a way to figure out which ones are which! Check out the details below…
*Head on over here and right-click on any Coupon image
*Click on the “View Image” text and a new tab or window will open up with the image in your browser (I’m working on a Macbook, so if you’re using a PC you may need to click on the “Properties” text).
*Look at the html coding at the top of your browser and you’ll see a long string of text for the image. Look closely at the link and you’ll notice that if a coupon is a Target store coupon, it will say “files.cncdn.com/partners/target/…” with the word target in the text.
*If the coupon is a manufacturer’s coupon, it will look like one of the above pictures and have either the word “manufact” in the HTML OR you may also see the particular manufacturer name in the link instead, like “files.cncdn.co/partners/norelco/….” as seen above.
Hopefully this will help those of you who have been wondering how to tell a difference between the 2 types of coupons! :)
