Target’s New Cartwheel App for Easier Savings

I recently took a trip to Target to try out the new Cartwheel app on my phone. With Cartwheel, I was able to see which items had a discount and ended up walking out with a bundle of savings!

This free app, Target Cartwheel, offers more than 700 coupons that can be used right in the store. All I had to do was create a profile before having access to amazing daily coupons at Target!

Using the app is easy because it creates a single barcode that can be scanned on any item in the store and it will tell you whether that item has a Cartwheel offer on it. It is that easy to use and a great way to save!
To sign up for the app, you simply type in your Facebook login to create a profile and can see what offers your friends have on their Cartwheel lists. The app can also be accessed on your desktop, tablet, or even on your mobile web.
Each barcode generated by Cartwheel is unique to the guest and holds all of the offers on their Cartwheel list. All you need to do is simply scan the barcode one time at the point of purchase and all the discounts on your list will be applied!
Discount offers can be used as many times as you want until it expires with a few exceptions such as a limit of 4 items per offer, per transaction; limit of 6 Cartwheel scans per day.
The app is designed for in-store purchases and you can also login with your login if you would prefer to keep any items on your lists “private” or by changing the settings in the privacy section of the app.
 Cartwheel can also be used alongside other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons and your REDcard discount.
Badges are a fun way to earn more spots on your Cartwheel list! They are awarded for reaching savings milestones ($10, $25, $50, etc.), interacting with Cartwheel (example: adding an offer from a collection to your list), and via social sharing (an invited friend who joins Cartwheel). For each badge that is earned, a new spot on your Cartwheel list is opened.
Each guest starts with 10 spots on their list. More spots are earned when badges are awarded.
Cartwheel collections are curated lists of offers that make it easy for the guest on the go to add items to her list. The collections are created to support seasonal offerings and categorical offers (grocery, women’s apparel, baby items, etc.). Collections are not comprehensive lists of all offers.
When you download the app, what items would you like to save on? Leave a comment below to let me know and you will be entered into a random drawing for a $1,000 Target GiftCard®.
