    I was told by the cashier at the Chesapeake Square Target that I could not combine Target coupons with the offer for the free gift card.

  2. says

    If you have a PDF/Fax/all in one printer the coupons site for Target will not print as there is an incompatibility problem with the software so I cannot print the coupons that are offered for the above items. It would have been nice if Target had placed this on their app for smartphones as well. If you have a regular printer then you should not have an issue to print the coupons out.
