Target

With the $5 gift card deals for razors and Olay body wash this week, the Embrace/Olay deal seemed like a better deal at Target.

They had three Venus razors, but they weren't scanning for 6.99 or for the gift card on the store scanner. Since I was holding a sign in my hand that said it should work, the Associate went to a Manager and they decided to honor the deal.

Value of items: $42.46
Spent: $15.96 + 1.92 tax = $17.88 oop
Got $15.00 Gift Cards = $2.88 total cost
Remit for $15.00 Olay MIR = $12.12 Profit

I know, right.

At first I couldn't believe they had three Venus razors. But then I couldn't believe they didn't have more, since they weren't ringing up the right sale price or for the gift card.
The Associate and the Manager acted like they didn't have a clue, so I wonder if whoever bought all the other razors paid full price and got no gift card.
