Target: Emergen-C Moneymaker!

There is a really nice unadvertised Emergen-C gift card promotion going on at Target right now!

When you buy (2) 10ct boxes, you’ll get a $5 Target gift card back.  Plus there was a $1.50 off coupon in Sunday’s paper, which makes this deal a moneymaker!

Here’s how the deal will work:
Buy (2) Emergen-C 10ct Boxes at $3.50
Use (2) $1.50/1 Emergen-C Drink Mix, exp. 1/31/13 (RP 12/09/12)
Pay $4 and get back a $5 Target gift card
Final Price: $1 Moneymaker!

A couple things to note, this is an unadvertised deal so there is no guarantee that your store will be participating. Also, I checked two stores and only one of them carried the 10ct boxes so your luck will vary.  But definitely worth a look!

You can see the rest of this week’s Target deals here.

    Could you please tell me where I can find them? I went to 4 difference Target but they only have the 30 packs not that are price $7.89. Please let me know thanks you very much :)

    Sorry I can’t tell you where to find the 10 ct boxes. As I mentioned in the post not all stores carry them. Your best bet is to just call the stores in your area and ask. If they don’t carry them there isn’t much that you can do.

    Thanks for this! I only had one coupon but it was still a good deal considering I have some sickies at my house right now that could really use the Vitamin C boost. They had lots of them still on the shelf at the Merle Hay location in Des Moines, IA. It was only the super orange flavor that was $3.50.

    Would you be able to tell us the number off your receipt? That way the other person driving all over can just call and give her store the DPCI number so she knows for certain if they carry that one or not.

  5. Kelly says

    Not sure what the DPCI is, but the number on the receipt in front of the item is 094030882. Hope that helps!

    Which Target did you go to? I’m in the roseville area and don’t want to waste my time :)

  7. Charlene says


    I didn’t see them at the Fairway store. I did see them in Palm Springs though. You might use the number provided in the comments above and call ahead to check.

    I found the 10 pks, bought them but it did not trigger a gift card. Has anyone done this and got the gc?

  9. Charlene says

    Angela did it have signs? Remember at Target if the total purchase price falls below the amount of the gift card it sometimes won’t prompt. To solve the problem you just need to purchase any other items in the store to hit $5.01 or more or simply go to customer service and ask them to help you.

  10. Angela says

    The total was $7, but I had figured since you posted it, this was ringing up. Did you do this transaction?

  11. Charlene says


    I can’t possibly do every transaction I post. Our house would look like a Costco and I would be broke. In general I don’t buy things I don’t need and I don’t personally have a need for these products. If there were no signs then you were taking your chances on the transaction. Even if I had done it, it would have been on Sunday and they may have just taken the 10ct size off since that time. The store I visited did have the 10ct size marked as part of the transaction which is why I posted.

  12. Angela says

    You mean you don’t live in your own costco world … lol

    I understand.

  13. Charlene says

    Well I am starting a Costco blog so yes I kind of live in a Costco world at the moment ;). I am not a stockpiler though. I can’t stand too much stuff around me so I really don’t buy that many deals. Just the stuff we for sure will use.
