Have you heard about the new(ish) Target Cartwheel program? If you haven’t, you’re missing out. I discovered it a couple months ago through a friend, and it’s pretty awesome.
What is this Target greatness? It’s a money-saving program that can be used on your computer, tablet, mobile web, or iPhone and Droid. The program includes over 700 coupons to use on in-store purchases. And if you’re a big couponer, you’re able to use Cartwheel with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons, and your REDcard discount.
I use the iPhone Cartwheel app. Here’s what it looks like on my phone.
Each barcode generated by Cartwheel is unique to the guest and holds all of the offers on their Cartwheel list.
There are categories for every section in the store– from grocery to the Target cafe.
Here are some of the offers available in the home section.
If you find a coupon you think you’ll use, add it to your Cartwheel and you’re ready to go. When you’re checking out, have the guest services person scan the barcode (after scanning any other coupons, discounts, etc.) and all the discounts on your list will be applied.
Another cool feature is when you’re shopping in the store, using either the iPhone or Droid apps, you can scan any barcode in store to see if that item has a Cartwheel offer on it. Pretty cool, huh?
There are different extras with the app, like collections and badges.
Cartwheel collections are curated lists of offers that make it easy for you on the go to add items to your list. The collections are created to support seasonal offerings and categorical offers (grocery, women’s apparel, baby items, etc.).
Badges are 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.
One more thing, you are able to use your Facebook login to sign up with Cartwheel. This enables you to see what offers your friends have on their Cartwheel lists in the app experience as well as via Facebook’s open graph stories. I, personally, don’t log in through Facebook (I log in with my Target.com account) because I don’t want my business all over Facebook. But if you want to use your Facebook login, but do not want your Cartwheel activity posted to Facebook, you can manage that by not allowing Facebook to post on your behalf during the authentication process. You can manage this at any time via the app privacy settings. You can also add any offer to your list as “private.” This will keep from any story being posted to Facebook about that offer.
