You Can Get $30 Worth of School Supplies for Free at Target Right Now. Here’s How.

For many, money is tight right now and the thought of having to head back to school shopping soon, can be daunting.

But what if I told you, I could help alleviate some stress by getting you some school supplies for free?

Well, right now, you can get $30 worth of School Supplies for Free at Target!! Don’t worry, I will show you how!

I get it, $30 doesn’t seem to go a long way these days but every little bit helps, right?

If you agree, this is a deal worth taking advantage of!

Now you need to know one thing – you need to follow my steps exactly or this deal won’t work! But trust me, it works and, it’s worth taking the time to do this deal.

And for those wondering, this is NOT A SCAM. It is legit and it’s a cash back website I use ALL. THE. TIME. I’ve been a member since 2018 and have earned over $1,000 already from my online purchases (see the screenshot below).

It’s free and easy to use and it gives you cash back on your online purchases moving forward.

If you don’t trust me, Google it yourself and you’ll see a ton of articles and info about them.

The $30 is a one-time sign-up bonus for joining their website. From there, you can just shop online at your favorite stores and earn cash back every time you shop.

You will end up paying $30 out of pocket initially but within 15 days you’ll receive $30 cash back making your online purchase at Target free (or cheap depending on how much you spend).

Now, there is a catch though, you will need to shop within certain categories.

Eligible categories include:

Cash Back is only available on these categories: Apparel, Jewelry & Accessories, Baby Gear, Furniture, Kitchen, Home Decor, Health, Beauty, Personal Care, Bath, Outdoor Furniture and Decor.

Exclusions: Cash Back is not currently available on purchases made through the Target App, Small Appliances, Toys, Home Electronics, Bicycles, Grocery, Household Commodities and Essentials, Diapers, Wipes, Baby Food and Formula, Baby Toiletries, Pets, Sporting Goods, Movies, Video Games and Consoles, Apple products, Target Pharmacy and OTC, Target Photo, Target Optical, Target Cafe, Prepaid and Gift Cards, Music, Books, SweetJOJO, Contract Mobile, and Drive Up items/orders are excluded from earning Cash Back.

Cash back is only available on orders completed and shipped through the Target US site. All orders placed through other countries will void Cash Back.

So, that means school supplies qualify because they are under the “office supplies” category! This is a crazy awesome deal.

And school supplies at Target start at just $0.25 each right now!!

How to Get $30 of School Supplies For Free at Target Right Now

Step 1 – Use THIS LINK to sign-up for a free Rakuten account. It’s an easy process and doesn’t cost you anything.

You MUST use the link above to get the deal or it won’t work! Also, this is for new members only. If you have an existing account in your household, it won’t work.

Step 2 – When you are logged into Rakuten, search for “Target” then click the link they give you. This is IMPORTANT! If you don’t click the link from the Rakuten site, your order won’t be tracked and you won’t receive the $30 cash back.

Step 3 – Shop online at Target. You can do the free Target pickup as well. Place your order as usual (as long as you clicked the link from the Rakuten website). Again, if you are shopping for school supplies, make sure your total is a minimum of $30.

Step 4 – Rakuten will email you once they’ve processed your order for the cash back. You will then receive a check or PayPal within 15 days of your first purchase. Make sure your info in your profile including your PayPal info and mailing address is correct so you can receive your $30!

That’s it! You will get $30 back for spending $30 at Target making any school supplies FREE or cheap (depending on how much you spend).

Now, the catch is, this is only going on through September 30, 2023 while school supplies last. So, make sure you sign-up and complete a $30 purchase before then.

However, you can share this deal with your friends and family. Just make sure they sign-up using their own email to get the deal. If they sign-up under you, you also get $30!!

Note: You can get an extra $30 back if you have your friends and family sign-up from your referral link. Under your profile click the “Refer & Earn $30” button and there will be a unique link you can copy. Once they sign-up through your link and make a $30 purchase, you get $30 too!!

Happy Shopping and I hope this $30 back really helps your budget right now!!

You can do this same method with Walmart or other stores as well. :)

I signed up via Rakuten but there is no advertisement for Target nor is there anything at all leading me to the Target website.

Once you are signed up and logged in, you just need to search for Target on the Rakuten website and click their link to shop that way so it tracks from your account. Hope that helps
