Target Store Coupons vs. Manufacturer

TargetI know many of us definitely don’t want to be wasting precious money on ink printing out coupons that we won’t be able to use but awesome Wiz Kid Amanda M. has figured out how to tell whether the coupon is Target (store) or manufacturer BEFORE you print! Here’s how:

For Google Chrome:

When you go see a coupon on right click your mouse on the picture (not the text). Then go down and click “inspect element”. A bunch of letters and numbers html code will pop up on the bottom of your screen. The highlighted URL is what you need to look at though. It will look like this:


See how in the middle it says “target”? That means it is a Target (store) coupon.

If it is manufacturer it will look like this:


See how that says “advil” in the middle? That means it is an Advil manufacturers coupon. Occasionally, some will just say “manufacturer” instead of an actual company name but if it doesn’t say Target then it is manufacturer.

If you have Firefox right click then go to “View Image Info” and follow the same directions, looking for the highlighted URL.

If you have Internet Explorer, right click then when the box pops up look in the middle where it says “Address” and look at the URL there. ~Lauren
