After the first target transaction, I just rolled the GC from the first transaction into the next one and kept doing that until I ran out of Gillette coupons.   I now have a $5.00 GC to use on something I need to get from there.

Bottom line is that I got ALL this:

(4 Vitamin Waters, 4 Shave Gels, 4 razors, 3 toothpastes, 2 baby washes and a One-A-Day vitamin water packet)
