Save 37% on Diapers

We love a chance to make an already good deal even better, so here are a few extra tricks!

As an example, let’s look at a Huggies Little Snugglers super pack. Use these deal-stacking tips to save even more money on diapers next week at Target.

1. Use a Manufacturer’s Coupon

Sign up with Huggies to get this coupon for $4 off any two packages of Little Snugglers.

2. Use a Discounted Gift Card

Purchase a Target gift card from to stretch your money further. For example, there’s a $50 e-gift card available today for $48 (4% off).

You’ll receive it via email within a few hours, and you can transfer the gift card to your Target app, or print the gift card from your email and scan the barcode in the store.

3. Pay With a Cash-Back Credit Card

Pay for your gift card with a cash-back credit card for additional savings.

Here’s an option we like: It’s the Chase Freedom Unlimited card. Its claim to fame? You’ll earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all your purchases. Plus, if you spend $500 in your first three months of opening the card (hi, groceries), you’ll pocket a $150 bonus.

There’s no annual fee, and the cash-back rewards don’t expire. We checked Credible’s annual rewards calculator, and it estimates $417 in annual rewards based on our spending habits.* (You can enter your unique spending habits and see what you’d earn, too.)

*Annual Rewards amounts will change based on the amounts you enter. The monthly spending category names and definitions may vary among issuers, and categories may not align one-to-one.

4. Get a Rebate

Scan your receipt after you shop to get more money back.

Ibotta is offering $2 back on any variety or size of Huggies diapers.

Here are your savings:

  • Original price: $49.98 (2 @ $24.99)
  • Discounts: $6
  • Cash back: $12.72
  • The Penny Hoarder Price: $31.26

With these steps, you’ll save a total of $18.72 — 37% — on diapers next week!
