How to Distinguish Between Target Store & Manufacturer’s Coupons on

If you shop at Target often and print coupons from on a regular basis, you’ve probably noticed that 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 “…” 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 “….” 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! 🙂

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
