Background: Target changed their printing system quite a while ago so the number of prints per coupon is limited to two per computer. The target coupons are all the same and indistinguishable from one another, thus the pages can be scanned and uploaded.
Note - some of the coupons listed on www.target.com/coupons are actually manufacturer coupons from E-centives. These ARE unique to you and WILL NOT BE UPLOADED, PERIOD. The same goes for target coupons sent out in mailings and newspaper inserts.
To tell the difference between manufacturer and target coupons, look at the name. If it has "when you buy" then it's a MFQ. If it has "with purchase of" or nothing else then it's a TQ. (btw...MFQ = manufacturer coupon, TQ = target coupon)
-Is this illegal/ethical? That depends on how you look at it. Certainly this is not meant as a system for customers to mass-print-out copies and try to purchase shopping-cart-fulls of items. That kind of behavior only gives "coupon people" a bad name; not to mention ruining it for anyone else who wanted to take advantage of a deal. The majority of users are only looking to use a couple additional coupons or just two altogether because of failed printing/incompatible hardware. Be reasonable not only to other shoppers but also to the target cashiers. (In the event that coupons start printing with unique numbers/codes/info this thread will be killed.)
-How may coupons can I use at once? Some coupons are worded differently, setting technical limits "per person" or "per transaction". A good rule is to only use two per person/per store/per trip. Many stores have had to limit it to one coupon because of abuse. If they give you a hassle, you can explain that each person in your party had access to a computer and was able to print two from each. If they still don't want to let you use them, move on. It will vary by store and even by cashier. Try to pick younger cashiers as they are generally
-Is the target coupon activator a virus? No. If you're getting coupons from the site, you have nothing to worry about. It's completely safe.
-Can I request a coupon from a mailer or newspaper? NO. This thread is for PRINTABLES only; IE. if it isn't from target.com, it won't be found here.
-What about target coupons from coupons.com? Nope. If you look closely, you can see the bottom numbers on each are unique.
-Can I use a MFQ and a TQ together? Of course. Review the target coupon policy HERE and a PDF version HERE. It's a good idea to keep a copy with you. You should also read up on the changes made to the policy last year; a great summary can be found HERE
-What the heck? It's asking for a password? Look next to the original link. There are passwords on select files due to previous instances of other sites leeching pages and re-uploading them without giving a single link-back or credit. It's also meant to try and help prevent people spamming them "elsewhere".
-Why are these hosted on mediafire? It's the best free host out there; unless you actually want captchas, 30 second wait times, and file limits per hour. You can easily block ads with AdBlock if that's an issue. It is occasionally down so if you get an error message, try again later (or send me a note and or ask in the thread if it's broken for anyone else).
-Why are there two per page? Most people don't want to print 4 copies of a coupon, especially if each is off multiple items. Target deals usually involve even numbers of coupons, so 3pp doesn't make much sense either. If you want 4pp, simply print a page and put the paper back in your printer upside down and turn around so it print on the other half.
If you can think of anything else to add, please let me know.

IMPORTANT - TQZ posted on T.com 19 May and later have a unique PIN and will not be posted on FW.
There is currently one link to Media Fire and no hints / clues. There are a couple of Target coupons individually posted in the thread. Use "Search this Topic>" at the top of the thread (not the top of the page).
Scoobysnack84010 has posted around 13 new TQz that are available in one folder on Mediafire. Check out his post / link HERE or search for "NEW TQz Link" through "Search this Topic>."
The "list" is of around 47 current coupons available on Target.com, that were posted on T.com May 18th and earlier.

However, the is a very fine line printed on the top across the coupon, says "$1 off exp 3/30/14 - xxxxxxxxxx -$1 off exp 3/30/14 - xxxxxxxxxx". This 10 digits xxxxxxxxxx is different on each coupon. Is this new or is it always like that? if by new, you mean as of months ago, then yes...it's new I read the thread a bit more, now understand what you were talking about. So basically, since 5/19/2013, something happened.....then lifted for short while, then back again. So nothing interesting new, nothing interesting is happening.
