CARTWHEEL, Target’s Mobile Coupon App
Have You Discovered Target’s new mobile coupon system that lets you save money as you shop?
While we were shopping in Target the other day when a fellow shopper came up to us and asked us we’ve been using the Cartwheel shopping app from Target?
Nope. Did not even hear of it until just now. So I went to our “Google Play” store and downloaded it. Once downloaded, I signed up with one of my Google Accounts (The app asks for one of three ways to connect/login), and went from there.
The mobile app system shows you things that are on sale in the store, which is great, but I don’t shop that way. Meaning I develop my laser focus shop mode and go to town. If I were to let outside influences sway my shopping, my cart would not be my own and I would spend more money than I had intended.
Trust me, I know this.
So instead, we worked off our shopping list. You know the one with three items that magically become ten items?
As we picked things up, we scanned it with the Target app. Most everything we grabbed did not have a sale to it, but we did manage to discover that three or four items were on sale, that we did not know about previously.
Our milk, bread, Reese’s peanut butter Christmas trees and a toiletry were all on sale, with discounts ranging from 5 to 15% off.
Once you’ve scanned and collected your items in your app list, once you are at the cash register, let the casheir know you have some items, They then pull up your ‘personal’ barcode from your app, they scan it and take the discounts off your final bill.
Wallah! It seems pretty convenient.
Now I only just downloaded and used it so there is much more that I am probably not covering, but for the moment, I think I’m off to a good start.

Once you sign up, apparently you can scan in real-world coupons to add to your discounts at the register.
Also, if you’re worried about your reception in Target stores, they do provide in-store free guest wi-fi.
The more you use it, the more offers you get access to.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can still use the app from its website… collect the offers and then print your personal barcode from the Cartwheel website.
