So they will let you use your gift card to buy Disney gift cards? I wish I didn't live so far away from a Target...but then again, it has probably saved me money in the long run!

I have been to a few different Targets and done this deal a bunch of times. All the registers are set up to honor this now. These are not located with the regular toothpaste/toothbrushes. In my stores they were in the back of the store with all the bulk items - most of mine had their own endcap. You can scan these at their scanners and the correct ones will scan at $5.99 and it will say "Get $5 Gift Card with purchase".

This worked at the Target in Neshminy PA. The girl at the register said "this seems like a mistake" every time the register told her to give me a gift card. I also bought extra to donate to a homeless shelter to spread the love!

My Target was completely out of the 3 packs of Crest toothpaste. I said something to the girl at the checkout, and she said someone earlier had come in and bought over 100 of them. She also told me the 2 packs of Colgate Optic White (the 5 oz tubes, not the 4 oz) would also work for the gift card. They ring up at 5.99, and each one gets you a $5 GC. I had some coupons for $1/2 and some for $1/1, so either free after GC or $0.50/2 pack. Either way, a great deal.

Yeah - the Crest was gone at all my stores too. They had lots of Colgate 3 packs and the Colgate 2 packs plus toothbrushes & mouthwash.

We went yesterday here in Central California. The, what seemed to be Assistant Manager knew what we were talking about when we asked her where the toothpaste was located. She found 2 on the shelf and said that was all they had and they would not be getting anymore cause of the ad confusion. We went to the little price checker box to make sure they were the right ones. The price checker informed us they were the right ones and that they had more in the stockroom. We then asked another associate if they could get us some more. She check her handheld computer and it indicated there were 8 more (1 case) in the stockroom. We asked for 6 more, as not to be too greedy, and took a total of 8 which got us $40.00 in gift cards! Wohoo! Happy Happy Happy!

Sorry Jen in NH. Was this at the Somersworth or Greenland Target? It might have been me. Although It wasn't 100. Certainly seemed like it though. Closer to 15 at each store.

Target stores in Spokane, WA are not honoring the ad and even have the correct signs posted ($5 gift card with purchase of 3).

Did you try the deal? From what I understand is that all the Target Stores were programmed to give a $5 Gift Card with each one purchased. I went on Sunday and it was not programmed and they gave it to me anyway but the manager said that corporate was fixing that . And when I went yesterday all 3 stores I went to - it worked just fine. Register prompted them to scan a gift card after each one purchased. Not sure how they can say they are not honoring it if it is in their machines corporate wide??

Thanks for the tip OP.

I went to the Target here in PA and it worked great. I took the last 6 packs of toothbrushes! The cashier kept saying, "This has to be a mistake" every time she scanned a $5 gift card for me.

Thanks OP!! I'm in Omaha and got 3 boxes. It didn't appear many knew of the sale because there were plenty of all kinds.

Does anyone know if I can use the gift cards to purchase more boxes? I didn't because I wasn't sure. I guess it sounds like there is no limit on these either?

I bought one at the pharmacy & when it worked ok, I bought 2 more at the front check out. I'm thinking about looking for some coupons and going back for more. DH uses sensitive only but the kids & I will use any kind.

You can use the gift cards to purchase anything. I used the ones I earned at one store to purchase more hygiene products that were on sale and to purchase more toothpaste at another Target.
