What is Cartwheel?
Cartwheel is a free savings program that you use at Target where you can save anywhere from 5-50% on the items you purchase. Since it is digital you never have to clip a coupon! You choose the offers you want to use, and scan the barcode at checkout to save. You can download Cartwheel from the app store on your smart phone or access it from a computer. Click here to sign up.
My Shopping Trip
As I browsed through Target, I kept seeing these signs about saving more with Target Cartwheel App. At first I thought another app on my phone that I will probably only use maybe one or two times. I needed to pick up a few diapers, but I unfortunately forgot to get any coupons!
So I decided to see what this Cartwheel App was all about… It did take a few minutes to download, but that may have just been because of the location I was in.
Setup was very easy. All you had to do was make a login and password or use one of your favorite social networks like Facebook or Google+.
I quickly went to menu to see what my options were. To find your coupons choose either Offers or Scan Products. If you choose offers, Cartwheel will take you a department list and you can view all available offers for that department. But I was really wanting to test the app so I choose Scan Products.
Above you will see a scan of Lego set (Sorry, I already disposed of diaper box). There was no offers on this particular item, but the app will show you a similar item with offer for this item.
If the scan reveals an item with offer, all you to do is click add and discount is in your bar code section!
How to Redeem Discounts?
When checking out just go to My Barcode, and show it to your friendly Target staff so they can apply the discount for you! Be sure and present any other coupons before Cartwheel barcode.
How to Get the Most Discounts!
Did you know you can combine Cartwheel with manufactures coupons, REDcard discount, and one other Target Coupon?
So my diapers were originally $24.99. I had a Target text message coupon of $1.50 off which brought diapers to $23.49. Then I applied Cartwheel discount of 5% which brought diapers to $22.31. I also paid by REDcard which took another 5% off. The final price I paid was $21.19 plus tax. So I saved $3.80 on that package of diapers. I wish I would have a manufactures coupon to apply to, but this was an unplanned trip.
To really maximize the savings on this purchase, I could have bought two and received a $10 Target Gift card for a future purchase.[bctt tweet=”I love Target’s #Cartwheel app. Learn my #tips to #save more on your next shopping trip. #review #coupons #Target #shopping #save “]
How many Cartwheel offers can I use at one time?
You may 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 will save on all the offers you have room for in your Cartwheel at one time.
Unlock More Badges!
To get the most spots in your Cartwheel list you need to unlock badges! More badges equal more Savings!
How many times per day can I use my Cartwheel list per day at Target?
You can save on your entire Cartwheel list up to 6 times per day.
Can I use the discount on one or more of the same items in a transaction?
Yes! You can use the offer up to 4 times per qualifying item per transaction, unless noted otherwise. I have seen some offers like a discount on clearance items be up to 10 items per person instead of 4. To see all the information on an offer be sure and click details.
Below you will see a screen shot of the details page. From here it easy to see if this offer is popular, expiration, exclusions, and terms & conditions, and you can also remove item from Cartwheel list to make room for more offers.
