Since the New Year began, I’ve been looking for ways to save a few bucks anywhere I can. My husband works construction so this crippling cold weather we’ve been having means little to no work for him. No work equals no pay so we’ve been watching our pennies quite closely lately.
I recently came across the Target app called Cartwheel which looks very interesting. I don’t have a Target right down the street from me so I have yet to actually use it. I can’t seem to get out of the house this week between the negative degree temps, snow and ice. Needless to say I’m feeling kind of confined, lol!
Once the weather breaks, I do plan to make use of Cartwheel on a regular basis so I thought I’d share it with you in case you hadn’t heard of it yet either. The basic concept is virtual Target coupons, for in-store use only, stored all on one handy app.
With over 700 coupons to choose from, there is something for everyone! And best of all, these Cartwheel discounts can be used with other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons and/or your REDcard discount. That means extra saving and extra dough back into my pocket!
Here’s How It Works:
First you will need to either download the Cartwheel app to your smartphone/tablet or you can sign in and use it on a laptop or desktop computer. You’re able to sign in using your Facebook account too which makes it quick and easy to use instantly. I like using my desktop so I can sit down with my meal plan for the week and quickly and easily look for ingredients I may need.
Once you’re signed in, simply browse the products for things you need or want to buy. The icons for the items listed show what the actual Cartwheel discount is for the item. Click on the product icon and it will reveal the discount expiration date and an “add” button.
If it’s something you want to buy, simply click “add” and it will be saved to your Cartwheel app. You only get to add 10 items to your app per shopping trip though so choose wisely, lol! You do get a chance to earn more discount spots as you use your app. The more you save with your app the more discount spots you open up.
You can always see everything in your app or delete items by clicking the “my Cartwheel” button in the upper right hand corner. Once you’re satisfied and ready to shop, simply hit the “redeem in store” button.
All you need to do then is print out your list with the barcode on it and take it on your next Target excursion. Shop for all your desired items and then have the checkout clerk scan your barcode at the time of checkout. Poof! Money instantly saved!
It may seem a bit confusing by my instructions here but trust me, its super simple to use. You can download the Cartwheel app and try it for yourself, no strings attached. If Mother Nature’s on my side this coming weekend I plan to put this baby to work! Can’t wait to see how much I save!
