Saving Money With Target Cartwheel


My love affair with Target is definitely not a secret around here. I can spend hours just browsing up and down the aisles- trying on new accessories and redecorating my house in my head. Target is my happy place. So when I first was introduced to the new Target Cartwheel app I wanted to know more! When I found out it was a way to save money, I really wanted to know more! With 5 kids and a husband who works in finance, saving money is the name of the game around this house. 





The Target Cartwheel app is a savings program that can be used on your desktop, tablet, mobile web, and iPhone or Droid apps. There are more than 700 savings offers available from every area of the store on the cartwheel with new ones added regularly. It’s super easy to get started and even easier to use! You can log in with your target.com log in information or you can log in using Facebook. I chose to use my Facebook to log in to Target Cartwheel so I can see what offers my friends have added to their own cartwheels. I like being able to add offers to my cartwheel privately as well- my Facebook friends don’t necessarily need to see what brand of feminine products I use! Another feature that I know I will use all the time is the scan feature from the iPhone app (also available on the Droid app). I can walk around Target and scan any barcode in the store to see if that item has a cartwheel offer available on it. That’s super helpful for me because no matter how hard I try to stick to a list when I shop, I inevitably find something that I just must buy that’s not on my list. It’s just a given.    Unlike regular coupons, your Target Cartwheel offers can be used as many times as you would like until they expire with only a few exceptions including a limit of 4 items per offer, per transaction and a limit of 6 Cartwheel scans per day. For example- if you had an offer for 10% off of 20-ounce bottles of Diet Coke, you could purchase 4 bottles in one transaction and the offer would be applied to all 4 bottles. You could do this up to 6 times in one day, which would give you 24 bottles of Diet Coke at 10% off each. Pretty good deal, right?    





I know I love to save money and I know all of you do too which is why I have to tell you that your Cartwheel offers can be stacked with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons, and your REDcard discount! Now that is how you save some money! When you get up to the register there is no big hassle to redeem your Cartwheel offers. There is one single barcode to be scanned and it holds all of your Cartwheel offers. All you need to do is present your Cartwheel barcode to be scanned after any other discount has been applied and you’re done! If you are using the iPhone or Droid app then you can have the barcode scanned directly from your smartphone, otherwise you can print your Cartwheel out to take with you. Target Cartwheel offers are valid for in-store purchases only.
