Gather up all your offers and add it to “my Cartwheel”.  Grab a copy of the Target Cartwheel app on your Android or iOS device and head over to your nearest Target. While in Target you can add additional items by scanning any bar-code in the store to see if that item has a Cartwheel offer on it. When you are ready to checkout, simply display your bar-code to the team member and with one quick scan you’ll automatically save on all the offers on your Cartwheel.

 You are able to use any offer on their list as many times as you wish until the offer expires (with the following exceptions: limit of 4 items per offer, per transaction; limit of 6 Cartwheel scans per day). You can even stack Cartwheel on top of other savings. Meaning you can use your Cartwheel App with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons and their REDcard discount, now that is crazy savings!   If you sign in using Facebook,  Invite friends to join, or share deals with them,  you’ll save even more. Don’t worry, you are able to add any offer to your list and mark it as “private.”  This way Facebook will not post on your behalf during the authentication process. You can also manage this at any time via the app privacy settings.

You can even earn badges which is 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.   There are A TON of offers so have fun browsing around and saving money!

Love this idea seeing as Target is my home away from home.

  13. I like that im allowed to combine target and manufacturer coupons – but its also on my phone, so if i forget my other coupons i can still save $
