DEALS at Target come and go but hacks tend to stick around – like this picture trick from a deals finder and Target shopper.

Lugging furniture up to the nearest scanner may not be ideal for every shopper as some items can be big, bulky and difficult to manage.

Just take a photo of the barcode and scan your phone at the machine

But there may be another way.

TikToker and home decor enthusiast Kenzie Marie has a helpful tip.

Kenzie, who goes by kenziemariehome on TikTok, shared the picture hack in a recent video.

As Target was having a major clearance on its home decor, Kenzie started scanning items she was thinking of purchasing.

Some items were a little too large for her liking so she decided to take a picture of the barcode and scan that instead.

“A little hack I have is instead of taking the big items up to the price scanner, you can actually take a picture of the barcode on your phone and then go and scan the barcode with the scanner,” Kenzie said on TikTok.

The U.S. Sun reached out to Target for comment.


Another Target tip comes from a TikToker and Target shopper Christine.

She posted a TikTok revealing what the tiny numbers on each clearance tag means.

Shoppers in the clearance section take an item, look at the tag and should see a number in the upper right corner.

In the video, Christine took a shirt that was on clearance and pointed out the number 30 in the corner.

Just note that you may have to look closely at the tag as the numbers are quite small.

She said that those numbers indicate the item is 30 percent off.

As most items go up to 70 percent off, Christine said that shirt may be cheaper in the coming days or weeks.

“So you know if it says 30, it’s still gonna get marked down two more times,” she said on TikTok.

However, a fellow Target shopper noted in the comments that not all items will make it to 70 percent off, and not all clearance items will be marked down each week.


While you have your phone out, Target has an app that shoppers may use to browse and clip digital coupons specific to their store location.

In addition, you may be able to spot discounts by scanning items’ barcodes through the Target app.

The app can show you when prices are marked down, even if the label hasn’t been changed in-store, so you can score savings you’d otherwise miss by utilizing that tool.

Plus the Target price match guarantee states that the store will match the price if you buy a qualifying item at Target and then find the identical item for less at:

  • Select online competitors
  • In Target’s or competitor’s local print ad

Price matches may be requested at the time of purchase or within 14 days after purchase. 

The full list of online competitors is available online.
