Re: 2 Unisom Simple Slumbers - 60 Count; $1.02 mm (Target)

@cjwoody 

Even though you are buying three of one thing, they are each an 'item".  As @FelskyNY was saying, they should ring up $9.99.

When it is saying limit of 1 of each coupon type per item. They are saying you could combine a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon on each, but this particular TC is a MQ, so you can only use one or the other per item.

If you got three of the  unisom, you could use 2 of the PQs and the one TC.   so, $9.97 x 3 = $29.97 less $8 TC less $16 PQ ($8x2) = $5.97 OOP, and you get the $5 GC.

Another interesting thing about Target math when earning a GC.

It looks like they spread the GC earned amount across participating items in your receipt, deducting the respective percentage from each item to assign a return value.  That reduces your taxable obligation as well on all GC earned.  

For example, IN has 7% tax, so I save 35¢ tax on the transaction since it reduced the $19.98 by the $5 GC earned, so I am only taxed on $14.98.

So it ends up being:

$9.99 less $2.50 (1/2 of GC eared) = $7.49 each  X2 = $14.98 + tax = $16.03 less $8 TC less $8 PQ = 3¢ + $5 GC earned (to offset the same $5 taken off earler) = $5.03 due  (and earn the $5 GC)

So in the end, I truly only paid 3¢ even after tax

(am I the only one who really enjoys the oddities of how the calculations are all done on non-standard situations?)

@Rickibotta  At times I try to figure out what in the world happened on my receipt, but as long as I get the credit, it works in the end.
