Cartwheel by Target! A great new program that helps you save on top of coupons and in-store offers!


I have a confession:  I’m a Target-a-holic. I am literally there shopping at least once a week, many times much {cough} much more often. I have been known to end date nights there with my husband, roaming the aisles in a blissful child-free state, and I have even been known to head there after a night of sushi with a good friend to scour the clearance racks for the best deals.

So I was super pumped to hear about Cartwheel from Target!  It’s a new way to get additional savings at the store where I already do most of my shopping!

Here’s what you do. You download the Cartwheel app to your phone (though it can also be used on mobile devices like iPads or even your desktop computer), where you will then have access to more than 700 additional savings/coupons that you can use in the store! You log in either with your Target login (I have a REDCard and a Target account so that’s what I went with) or your FB account.

You browse through the offers:


And find the ones that you know you will use. That Circo one will come in handy!


You click on it and it adds it to your account. You browse and add any other offers that look good, and then when you check out you hand over all your coupons and then have the clerk scan your personal barcode (right in the app on your phone!). All the additional savings that you loaded to Cartwheel will be applied to your total!


You can also use your phone to scan items right in the store to see if there are any Cartwheel deals that apply. Ummm . . . my kids are going to kill me, because I’m going to scan everything.

Here’s the other thing that I love about it. You can use it in combination with other offers. You know how you can use a Target Coupon and a manufacture coupon on a single item? Well now you can add Cartwheel savings to that, plus what you save with your REDCard! Plus you can use the same Cartwheel deals more than once the entire time the deal is running. You can have your Cartwheel barcode scanned up to six times in one day. So if there is a deal running on 2 liters of Diet Coke, but there is a limit of four per purchase, you can buy four at a time, but six times in one day for a total of 24 bottles in one day.

Aren’t you pumped to start adding deals??
