Load Up Your Cart with Target Cartwheel App {Sweepstakes}


I have made it absolutely no secret how much I love Target. LOVE. LOVE. L.O.V.E.

I love their clothes. I love their little men clothes. I love their shoes, their bedding, their decor, their popcorn (you know, fresh popped in a red cheery popcorn bag), their toy selection, their jewelry...

Okay this list could go on and on. Yes, I love Target.

Now I have another point of infatuation with my beloved Target. I am infatuated with their Cartwheel App.

 

 

 



Have you heard of it? Have you downloaded it? Do you use it?

Well, you should my friends. This app will rock your world. I mean, I know you are already shopping at Target, so you might as well save some dollars as you do and use the Cartwheel App.

Let me give you the down low on Target's Cartwheel App, you know, since I am a Cartwheel wizard now.

Target's Cartwheel App can can be used on your desktop, tablet, mobile web or iPhone and Droid apps. You can sign into Cartwheel with either your Facebook login or your Target.com login. You can generate your own list of offers by perusing the over 700 offers/coupons available in Cartwheel and simply adding the offers you are most likely to use. You can make your lists sitting at home on your computer or you can peruse them in the car sitting in the Target parking lot.

Searching is made even easier with the Cartwheel collections. Cartwheel collections are curated lists of offers. The collections make it easy to search for offers on the go. The collections could be offers organized by holiday and seasonal, grocery, women's apparel, baby items, and many more. My favorite was the Weekly Ad Double Dip.


This collection organizes the Cartwheel offers that coordinated with items in the store that were part of Target's Weekly Deals. Genius I tell you! I simply looked through the list and added the offers I wanted to My Cartwheel.

I kind of geeked out over the fact that I could stack offers. You can use the Cartwheel offers with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers' coupons and your REDcard discount. That is a whole lot of saving right there.

The collections are not a comprehensive list of all the offers. There are TONS of offers available and at any given time. Remember, like over 700 offers. CRAZY.

One of the easy ways you can check for offers is to use your phone to scan the barcode of the item you are about to purchase and the Cartwheel App will tell you if there is an offer available for that item. Then it will add it to your generated list of offers.

You simply have to go to the main menu. Then you double tap on the little bar code.


Then a barcoade scanner will appear. You scan the barcode for the item in question. Then either an offer will pop up or you will get a message saying there is no offer available for that time right now.

I looked pretty legit checking for offers in the cleaning aisle.

 

 

So legit in fact that this cute momma of littles came up and asked me what I was doing. She knew about the Cartwheel App but didn't know about this scan feature. I spread the Cartwheel App love and now she knows!
 
Once I had my scanned offers and the offers I had previously added to My Cartwheel, it was time to go around the store to load up my cart.
 
I loaded up my cart with some things I didn't so much need, but wanted nonetheless.
 
 
I was also able to get somethings I needed, like new bedding. See the double stacking of offers on top of sale prices?
 


In fact, I was able to use my Threshold offer for both a new bedskirt AND new pillow cases. You are allowed to have multiple uses of offers until the offer expires. The only stipulations are that you limit 4 items per offer (I used 2... man, I should have gotten 2 more Threshold bath or bedding items), per transactions and you can use your Cartwheel offers up to 6 transactions in a day. So if you used an offer on 1 item to purchase the limit of 4 and did that transaction 6 times in 1 day, then you could have 24 of that particular item.

Yeah, I'm a math genius. Eh, not so much, so if I can do it, you can do it.

You probably don't want 24 sets of sheets, or even 4, but if you were using the Cartwheel App on bottle of Diet Coke, then this would keep your habit supplied for awhile.

Once I was ready to check out, all of my offers are all compiled into one barcode. So when I was done checking out, the lovely Target employee scanned that single scan barcode and all of my discounts came right off.

AWESOME.

In this trip I purchased laundry detergent, liquid dish soap, a Threshold bed skirt, a set of Threshold king sized pillow cases, two packages of M&M's, and a bra (yeah I just okay with telling you I bought a bra). All of these things were already on sale. Then thanks to the Cartwheel App my additional savings were $15.00. They would have been even more had I had a REDcard. I am working on it people, I don't know what my excuse is. Still, 15 bones isn't bad.

Thanks for letting me blather on about this amazing app. If you haven't downloaded Target's Cartwheel App yet, oh you really should. If you have downloaded it, but are unsure how it worked, now I hope you know. If you are a Cartwheel App wizard, thanks for letting me join your club. My certificate is in the mail, right?

I know you are all excited to use the Cartwheel App now, but you are about to get even more excited...
