Target has another brand new way to help you save money – it is called Cartwheel. You can actually save up to 30% off of items at Target, including grocery, apparel, health and more! The part I love the best is that you can stack Cartwheel coupons with Target store coupons and manufacturer’s coupons – making you save big time!
First of all, you will need to have a Facebook account in order to use this application. The reason is that they want to get the word out via social media – which is kind of like them paying you to advertise (if you will). Rather than spending money in on-line advertising, they are hoping shoppers will share the word and in turn, they are passing lots of savings on to you! Once you select an offer, it will show in your newsfeed, so your friends will learn about the application (you can actually change your setting though, if you would like, and this information will not post on your wall).
Are you ready to get started? First, just go to Target Cartwheel. Click on the blue Facebook login button (in the corner) – make sure you give the app permission to run. Then, go through all of the offers and click on those you are interested in using.
One you select the offer, it will show up in your own cartwheel. You can add up to 10 offers initially. After that, you will need to unlock badges. You can earn these by referring friends and redeeming offers. In less than 10 minutes after I signed up, I had already unlocked 8 badges because my friends saw it in my newsfeed and signed up too!
So, how do you actually redeem the offer in the store? You click on the my CartWheel button at the top of the page. You will see a list of all of the offers you have added to your account. If you have changed your mind about one of the offers, you can click on it and hit the remove button and it will be taken off of your list. If you are ready to shop, click the black redeem in store button, which will bring up a printable list format. Print and take this with you to the store. The barcode will be scanned by the team member and your savings applied to your purchase!
If you would rather not print it out, you can download the iPhone or Android App and just show it to the cashier on your phone. The offers you will have selected will be in your account and they will scan your phone and you will save instantly!
There are a few things you will need to keep in mind about using this application:
How many Cartwheel offers can I redeem at one time? You can redeem all the Cartwheel offers on your Cartwheel list at the time of your transaction. For example, if you have 10 offers on your list when you scan your barcode at a Target store, and you’re purchasing items tied to all 10 offers, you’ll save on all 10 items. If you’ve unlocked additional spots on your Cartwheel, you can save on all the offers you have room for in your Cartwheel at one time.
How many times per day can I use my Cartwheel list at a Target store? You can save on your entire Cartwheel list up to 6 times per day?
Can I stack other coupons with these offers? Yes you can. Target store coupons are deducted before Cartwheel savings are applied. Manufacturer’s coupons are deducted after cartwheel savings are applied.
