Planning to head to Target this weekend to aimlessly wander the aisles? If you’re a parent, that aimless Target run is actually going to benefit you tremendously. Everyone knows that babies are not cheap. They are growing every day, spitting up on their clothes, and bursting through diapers left and right. Infants go through onesies in the blink of an eye.
It would seem that Target understands just how much it costs to raise a child. They are currently running a promotion that you’re not going to want to miss. For every $100 spent on baby items, Target is giving away $20 gift cards. Don’t put off your trip to Target, this deal is only good through Saturday, January 19, 2019. Luckily, many Target locations are open until 11 P.M.!
Now, as amazing as this offer is, don’t think you can buy a car seat or crib and get a $20 for each $100 you spend. Target’s offer pertains to the essentials for babies, meaning you’ll need to purchase diapers, wipes, formula, or baby food. In order to qualify for this offer, you’ll also need to shop using Order Pickup or Target Restock. This option might be easier, especially if you have a little one at home that doesn’t fair well in a store for long. This way, you can get in and out ASAP.
If you choose Order Pickup, you typically can pick up everything in your order within two hours from Target. You’ll get an email notification when your order is ready, so you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled. If you choose Target Restock, your order will arrive on your doorstep the next day, so long as you submit your order before 7 P.M.
It isn’t hard to spend $100 at Target and if you think that only being able to purchase from four categories is limiting, it actually isn’t. A 120-pack of Pamper’s Swaddlers is $39.99 at Target. The average newborn baby gets at least 10 diaper changesa day during their first month of life. Meaning, that big box of diapers will barely make it two weeks. A 30.8oz tin of Similac Pro-Advance HMO Powder Formula is $36.99. Newborns can drink between three to five bottles a day of eight ounces of formula. There are 59 servings in one value tin of formula, meaning if a baby was formula fed, they’d go through this in anywhere between 9 to 19 days.
If you’re big on stocking up, you can get a few boxes of diapers, wipes, and tins of formula during this sale. You need to spend $100 on baby items shopping Order Pickup or Target Restock to get the $20 gift card. However, those gift cards you earn per $100 spent on baby items can be spent on whatever you’d like at target afterward!
