Target frustrations

I really love shopping at Target.
But I am starting to have more issues with their checkout process and with using coupons there.

Here are a few of my deals.
My plan was to do the Graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow deal (buy 2 at 2.99 each and get the marshmallows free). I then used a target .50 off the Hershey's 6-pk, a MC Buy all three get $1.00 off, and my plan was to price match the chocolate (with the Walmart add for 2.48). The other deal worked fine, but when I tried to price match they said they can only do that at customer service. So I went to customer service to get my .50, but the price was saying I paid 1.99 instead of 2.99, but I paid 2.99. In the end, after nicely complaining about the process, the guy gave me $2.50 back (I guess I'll take an extra $2).

In another deal I was trying to get, the AcneFree was on sale for $5.99 each, it was buy 2 get a $5 gift card. I also had a 15% of AcneFree Target coupon. Instead of taking $1.79 off, it took .90 off. I didn't notice until I got home, but I guess I already got an extra two dollars from customer service, so I guess I won't complain.

Other deals:
Carefree =free with coupon from a few weeks ago
Cutter insect repellent $3.99, used $1.50 MC from this week's insert, and $2 Target coupon = .50!
Aquafresh toothbrush $1.99, $1 MC, $1 Target coupon = free (they only had pink)
Monster sticker projects (for Jay's room and his birthday party!) clearance for $1.99 each.

Sometimes it's a pain to try to save. Keep up the good work.
