College Students! Target offers coupons, student discounts & gift registries!

Sending a kiddo off to college or preparing yourself for the next year of school? Shop Target.com or head in-store to grab dorm bedding, kitchen items, dishes, bath items, and so much more!

While Target doesn’t currently have a student discount available, they often offer one every year in July so you can get ready for school without breaking the bank. The discount for 2022 was a whopping 20% off your purchase and lasted from July through September so keep an eye out for another discount around the same time. Plus, they had tons of items on sale that stacked with the discount for even more saving.

Need something for your dorm now? Target offers awesome prices on home and dorm items, even without a coupon or discount. Some of our favorite deals are their Room Essentials Dishes, weekly grocery sales, and they always have furniture on sale!
