I am now stocked up on dog food for the 2 rottweilers and our lhasa apso. They have enough treats to last them 2 months at least and I now have more diapers to add to our stock that we got at $0.14 a diaper. I picked up 2 newborn packs to put in my donation for giveaways at the Healthy and Hapai event next week saturday.
The pedigree wet food was cheaper than the current sale at longs for 99 cents a can.
As long as you use credit wisely (pay off before month end), it works to your benefit. If you use it with no intent to pay it off in 30 days, I don't recommend it. Because the savings won't mean anything if you carry a balance on the card.
With sales like this for things I need, Target could quickly become my favorite store to shop at. It's out of the way for me to shop there so the savings have to be hot for me to make the drive out.
