Target Cartwheel + A Giveaway!

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please see policies for more information.

It is no secret that I have mad love for Target. It’s my favorite spot to shop for so many things – food, home essentials, and definitely holiday fun and clothes for everyone in my family. I have never been a couponer (I tried and failed miserably), so I’ve always appreciated their prices and the extra REDcard savings. I signed up for the Target mobile coupons when they introduced those and I jumped in with both feet when I learned about their newest way to save money with Cartwheel!

If you haven’t heard of it yet Cartwheel is Target’s money saving app with over 700 offers. You can download to your phone and login with your Facebook account (which is fun to see what your friends are using if they have that activity allowed – don’t worry you can hide anything you don’t want shared) or with your login.

My favorite feature is that you can scan any barcode using either the iPhone or Droid native apps to see if there is a current Cartwheel offer – saves SO much time!


My boys ALWAYS have to check out the Shaun White display in the boys’ section when we were there and this one has been eyeing this dog tee since he first saw it there. A common question I get is “Is this for sale Mom?”. We checked out the app and wouldn’t you know it – there was a Cartwheel offer available!

 Each guest starts with 10 offer spots and you earn more spots when you get badges for things like money saved, interacting with Cartwheel or social sharing.

 If you are all about saving the most money you’ll be happy to know that you can use Cartwheel with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons and their REDcard discount. Even if I have a great coupon I NEVER remember it but I always have my phone so always have extra savings. I even impressed my husband when I saved almost $60 once by using the Cartwheel app, mobile coupons and my REDcard.

So whether you are a couponer or like me, lucky if you remember your wallet, you have to check out the Cartwheel app for your next Target run. I’ve got my boys using it now so their job when we go shopping is to find as many Cartwheel offers as they can. It helps keep them from bickering 😉

    I love Cartwheel, I use it for groceries every week! I love the bar code scanner option that it has!

  2. Wow! Thanks for the great giveaway! I love Target! And thanks for the tips on the Cartwheel app for this newbie. I would probably use the gift card on some new clothes for the family….my boys just keep growing for some reason! 😉 Then I'd use it on any fun/cute stuff I have seen while browsing the store.

  3. I would use cartwheel to help save on stocking up my medicine cabinet for allergy season and getting more storage totes to finally get my house organized.

  4. Wow! First of all, what a generous giveaway! And second, I'd never heard of Cartwheel but I'm going to check it out. I'd love to use it to save money on beauty supplies and food.

  5. We shop at Target for all of our groceries, so I'd use Cartwheel to save money on that.

  6. I've used cartwheel to save on so much…mainly groceries and diapers and wipes! I didn't know it had a scanner option though!!! I need to start using that!

  7. i must admit, cartwheel is still kind of an enigma to me. i don't quite get it. why didn't target just combine its target app with cartwheel? it makes it kind of frustrating for me to have to remember not one, but two, apps to check for deals. i've clipped a couple cartwheel coupons but forget to use them all the time. i'm hoping that i can be better about using cartwheel for the regular day-to-day items i buy at target. 🙂 thanks!

  8. What an amazing giveaway. I would use cartwheel to save on some work clothes for me and clothes and toys for my kids.

  9. I use Cartwheel for literally everything, clothes, diapers, food. I have my eye on a certain bedspread/quilt that I really hope goes on sale soon. Target is my lunchtime destination 2-4 times a week!

  10. What would you use Cartwheel to save money on?

    Clothes for my almost 4 year old. He's growing out of all his 3T clothes and it's time to get him a new wardrobe for spring/summer.

  11. Probably diapers, kids clothes and baby food!

    So funny about this post – a friend of mine was talking about Cartwheel and all the mobile coupons just the other day. I'm definitely going to have to download it now.

  12. I use Cartwheel especially for items for my kids: clothes, shoes, diapers. It's a fantastic app! Well, really, it's a fantastic store.

  13. I used Cartwheel and my redcard this past weekend and saved $15! Its a start and I was so excited. I've decided I'm going to try shoping for everything at Target. I know there will be exceptions but for the most part, Target is my one stop shoppling place!

  14. I would use it for new clothes for momma's awkward no-longer-pregnant-but-back-to-her-old-size period. 🙂

  15. Best giveaway ever! We love our weekly Target trips! I would use the gift card for a lot of groceries and also some new spring/summer clothes for my family! We could really use a new tv too!

  16. We recently moved back to the US from Europe, so I would love to buy more household items that we couldn't bring with us!

  17. I would use the gift certificate to buy more of the adorable Circo boys shirts!

  18. I love using it for household items and clothing, just makes it that much easier to swallow!

  19. We love their boys' clothes and I would hit the housewares section for something for mama!

  20. I would use Cartwheel to save money on cat and dog food for my pets.

  21. I would use Cartwheel to save money on Diapers, wipes, and kids toys!
    Thank you!!

  22. I love cartwheel! It helps me save on my son's clothes since he's always growing out of everything too fast!

  23. I LOVE the Cartwheel app. I have used it on everything from toiletries to toys. I especially love using it for clothing and décor items. I would use it on new bedding (we've had the same quilt for 10 years) and a set of lamps for our bedroom.

  24. I would use it to buy things we need, art stuff, groceries and such and save some money for a house or maybe disney. =)

  25. I would get a new bookcase, or a desk for the kids. I LOVE the cartwheel app! I too am a little addicted…and we got a Shawn White shirt as well with that coupon!

  26. I downloaded this app a few days ago and look forward to using it! I can only find Mrs. Meyers products at Target, it'd be great to find a discount on Cartwheel for that fantastic product line!

  27. I would use it towards threshold home furniture for our new house I'm slowly decorating. I love everything Threshold

  28. Wow, how have I never heard of Cartwheel?! I would probably use it to buy a few new housewares and of course shoes 🙂

  29. I love the Cartwheel! I've been using it for a few months now and I had no idea about the scanner option! That will make future trips much easier!!!! I've just been searching to see if there were offers. We use it for everything we buy. Gotta love Target!!

  30. I love Cartwheel and I use it every time I go to Target! I love saving on clothes for my boys, pantry stuff, and the One Spot section.

  31. I use the cartwheel ap to save on diapers, home goods and snacks for lunches.

  32. Thanks for the tip! I had not heard of cartwheel until now, I will definitely check it out! My nine year old son and I love the clothes in the boys section at Target. I would also purchase some much needed houseware items for my kitchen and bathroom.
