Free Target reusable bag with samples

Target shoppers!

Check out the email and picture above that I received from reader, Rachel:

At Target today I received a free reusable shopping bag at checkout. It was not only a nice free bag, but also had free samples and coupons! There was a men and women razor, buy one get one Chipotle coupons, full-size Red Bull, Nivea lotion, and Truvia coupons just to name a few. The bags were just sitting there at each register and I asked to buy one to be “green” and the cashier said oh there free!

Anyone else spot these free bags at their local Target? Let us know in the comments!

    Oh wow that’s an awesome freebie. I was just there less than 2 hours ago and didn’t notice these anywhere ๐Ÿ˜”

    I was at Target today around lunchtime (Chesapeake, VA) and was checking out at customer service and they didn’t have them but maybe they did at the registers??? I have to admit, I’m a little jealous of the buy one get one Chipolte coupon! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s one of my favorite places! Enjoy your awesome freebie!

    What state?

    • Rachel

      I’m in IL. The store was right outside of Chicago.

      There weren’t any at customer service when I went. There were about 5 at each register by the bagging area.

    Did the can opener post get deleted?

    • Erica

      Hmmmm, I can’t find it either. Weird.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes, I decided to remove as I found at that this code was actually leaked and only for people who are reviewing their products. Sorry for the confusion. I just didn’t feel right keeping it up.

      • J

        And that’s why you’re the best Collin…you run your site with good morals ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

        • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

          Thanks for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚

    I saw something on Targets fb saying that starting Sunday, red card holders get a free reusable bag as a thank you:) it didn’t say it came with free samples, that would be a nice bonus!

    • Trisha

      Where did you see this on their facebook page? Thanks!

      • Jenny S.


    • Andrea

      I was just in ours last night (Lake Charles, LA) and they had no idea what I was talking about, lol. Even showed them Collin’s earlier post, and they acted like I was trying to mess with them (eyeroll).

  8. Neacy

    I am a target red card holder, when you go to their site it states starting 10/4 in stores while last. I’m going first thing tomorrow. Just Bring your Red Card

  9. Heather

    Any word of these in FL? If so I’m going right now๐Ÿ˜†

    • CW

      Went to my store 8 am today Sourh FL they had no bags

    • hello

      None in Clearwater

  10. anie

    I got curious and called customer service at my targets here in Virginia and they said there is no such offer in any of the stores here so maybe perhaps it is regional

  11. Jessica

    Went to Target in Gainesville, VA this morning, no free bag today! Planning on going early tomorrow to try to get one and the deal on princess costumes!

  12. anu

    Does anyone know if costume sale will be online as well.

    • Jessica

      Just checked online, and the costume sale is online too!

  13. Jessica

    I took a screenshot the other day of a Facebook ad from Target saying they’d be giving away free reusable bags to redcard holders. It said to stop by guest services to get it.

  14. Cynthia F

    I received these same bags with samples a month ago on college night. They do this event every year at select stores nationwide right before school starts. It was probably left overs from that event.

  15. aj

    The website says starting tomorrow

  16. Diana

    I found some really cute shoes on clearance for $7.48 and cw worked! Pd $5! I asked about free tote and cashier gave me one of the plaid totes. So cute ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! So glad you snagged one!

  17. Mochi

    Was at Target today, no bags today.

  18. anie

    Asked Cust Svs and the free bags starting tomorrow are not the same ones that are described in this post (I.E. the ones with samples). They are strictly a reusable target tote. ‘Just figured I’d mention this since some of the posters above may possibly be getting the two confused ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Anon

    None in spokane Washington

  20. Ashely

    I work at target in California, I haven’t heard of that. May just be a regional thing.

  21. rosana

    Awesome freebie

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  22. Marie

    My VA Target had the red plaid re-useable bags available for Target red card holders two days ago. They are cute. I think they would be nice to put gifts in at Christmas.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sweet! Great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Planning for Paris

      Great idea!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  23. dee

    I have gone to every event and multiple stores in NJ whenever an event or freebie bag giveaway is going on and have never got one! It would be such a treat to finally score one of these!

  24. Sue

    This looks like the branding for the events they’d have at the beginning of the school year in State College, PA. So my guess is it’s from that event.

  25. Kelbob31

    Nothing in so cal :/ I was there earlier

  26. denise

    mentor ohio target giving out the bags but no goodies inside

  27. Joe

  33. Sammie

  34. karen

  35. Planning for Paris

  36. Gisette

    Cute red plain reusable bag @ our Normal Il store! Thanks:)

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! YW ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. graysw

  38. Ann

    If it makes you guys feel better my store can not find the plaid red bags to hand out haha (Rapid City, SD)

  39. Debra B.

    When I called my local Target in NW Nashua, NH, they said they hadn’t, and weren’t expecting to, receive any of the plaid bags with samples. Bummer! I’m just glad I called first!

  40. Angie

    Got my bag in Chicago il

    • Amy

      Which Chicago store??

    • Shandelle

      Which Chicago store?? The one on Peterson gave me a plain bag and said the red plaid ones hadn’t come in yet.

  41. Beverly

    The Clifton Park store did not have the bags so the man in customer service handed me a $3 coupon good on anything in the store with no expiration date! Plus he said to check back later in the week in case they did get a shipment of the tote bags.

  42. Diana

    Arrived at 8am and got my red plaid bag! I didn’t even have to show my Redcard, but it’s probably because I’m always there. They know! Tulare, CA

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! So glad to hear that! ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Cathy

    Got a cute reusable red plaid bag in Franklin, WI!

  44. Vasu

    Got just empty bag no samples inside.

  45. Carolyn

    I happened to see a sign when I walked into a Target store in Louisiana (not where I live) today. I showed my RedCard at customer service and received the cute red/black plaid reusable tote. I also got four kids costumes for the price of two. Thanks, Collin!

  46. Sandra Southard

    The giveaway bags are handed out during “Back to College Nights”, so stores had some leftover and they handed them out to regular guests. In Pa. our college night was in early September and students were bused to Target. So if any Target had leftovers, then you scored.

  47. Molly K

    Today (10/5) in Wheeling, IL I received a free reusable bag (red with plaid design) for checking out and using my REDCard to pay. The cashier said it was a new offer through October (or while supplies last). Just a free bag, no coupons or samples, but hey, free bag and Target gives a $0.05 rebate for every reusable bag used a checkout!

  48. Natalie G

    I received a bag yesterday in Harmar, PA. However, there were no samples or coupons in it. Only a note to say thanks for being a Target REDcard holder…

  49. makeupmavenxoxo

    These bags are a promo for redcard holders, I noticed it advertised with my statement this month.

  50. makeupmavenxoxo

    The bags were advertised as a special in store promo for redcard holders, I noticed it in my statement this month.
