Even though I can appreciate a great deal, I am not what I would consider a bargain shopper. You won’t find me trekking all over the city or doing twelve things to save $2, but I’m excited to happen upon a 70% off after Christmas sale or shoes in my size on clearance.
In other words, I like easy. You know what couldn’t be easier?
Not the cartwheels of your youth, but the Cartwheel By Target app.
I was asked to provide my thoughts on the app, but you should know, I’ve been using Cartwheel for a few months now on my own. Target is one of my favorite places to shop and I really enjoy saving a few dollars on each shopping trip. The app is user friendly, can be downloaded for free from both iTunes and Google Play and can be used on tons of in-store purchases. You can sign in with your Facebook account, with your email, or your existing Target.com account. I use my Facebook account, but I don’t like apps posting on my behalf. When you sign up, during the authentication process, you can opt out of that or change your privacy settings so ‘only you’ can see it.
You begin with ten blank spaces and browse offers from categories like grocery or household essentials, adding in only the items you intend on buying. You can add or remove offers as you like and you will earn additional spaces as you earn badges. 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).
My favorite feature of the app is found by clicking on the small bar code icon next to the search bar. Up pops a barcode reader on your phone, you just align the reader over any barcode on a product or any shelf tag and it will tell you if there is a Cartwheel offer available. If there is, you can add it with just one click.
When you are ready to check out, you just tap on My Cartwheel and your own personal barcode will appear on the screen along with your coupons. The cashier will scan it and your savings are applied. Plus, you can also use both a manufacturer’s coupon and a Target coupon up to the full value of the item in addition to Cartwheel.
My friends and I joke that it’s physically impossible to get out of Target without spending at least $50, even when you run in for just one thing. With Cartwheel’s savings, we just might manage to do that!
