Baby costs add up quickly.

Throw a couple of boxes of diapers, wipes and a few other unexpected necessities into your cart, and you’ll find yourself at the checkout wondering why you wanted to become a parent in the first place.

(Don’t worry; one quick hug from your baby, and you’ll remember.)

Thankfully, Target likes to help out parents. They have a great deal on baby stuff this week.

Now through June 25, receive a free $25 Target gift card when you purchase $100 in baby stuff — diapers, training pants, wipes and/or formula.

To get a coupon for the free gift card, look in the Target weekly ad or text SAVE to 827438.

Follow our deal-stacking tips below, and you can save even more!

How to Get $120 in Baby Stuff for $61

Start by shopping online, so you can go through a cash-back site.

For example, today RebateCodes.com is offering 5% cash back at Target, plus a $5 bonus for new users. Shop Target.com through the portal to earn cash back on your entire purchase.

Target offers free shipping on orders $25 or more, so you can get all the baby stuff you need delivered to your door for free!

Use this summer baby shopping list as an example:

  • Two boxes of up & up baby wipes, Fresh Cucumber scent, because that sounds refreshing: originally $14.51 each

You’ll need these coupons and Cartwheel offers handy:

  • Text SAVE to 827438 for the coupon for a $25 gift card on a $100 purchase.
  • Get a free $5 gift card when you purchase two Huggies Little Swimmers (no coupon necessary).

You’ll save $14.14 at checkout, plus receive $30 cash back in Target gift cards.

Pay with your Target REDCard credit or debit card for 5% off your total purchase — another $5.34 in savings.

And when you shop through RebateCodes.com, you’ll earn another 5% — $5.07 — back, plus a $5 bonus, for a total of $10.07.

Here’s how much you’ll save:

  • Total value: $120.96
  • Pay at checkout: $101.48
  • Cash back and gift cards: $40.07
  • The Penny Hoarder Price: $61.41

That’s 49% off!
