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 😉

  1. I wold love to save for all the purchases I will be making in the coming months to get my daughter ready for college. 🙁

  2. I love cartwheel. I use it to save on everything. Be careful it does increase impulse buys. How can you turn down a good deal? I have used it since it first came out, and never knew about the scanner part. I have to check that out. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    I would use Cartwheel to save on groceries, pet supplies and clothes!!

  4. What a great giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity! I use Target Cartwheel on EVERYTHING! Groceries, toiletry items, clothing, and of course it's great when diapering items are featured!

    I like to save on groceries since they cost me so much money every month.

  6. I coach creative problem solving teams. I would use the gift card to support those teams with materials to create their solutions. Thanks Target!

  7. We love Cartwheel and use it every time we go to Target. I've saved on boys apparel and groceries. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I love cartwheel. I used it yesterday for 40% off my son's Valentine's cards and I aslo used a coupon for $3 off $10 holiday purchase to make his Valentines classroom exchanges pretty cheap. I was excited. The only problem was that we spent so much time in Target that I ended up having to get fast food for dinner instead of making it at home 🙂

  9. I think I might do some grocery shopping and look at upgrading either our ipad (1st gen) or wii (5yrs old) to something a bit newer.

  10. I would definitely use this to stock up on foods that are only available at Target such as the blue corn tortilla chips with flax seed and fruit bars- yummy!

  11. I LOVE my cartwheel app! And I love you can combine a cartwheel with coupons too. I didn't know you scan the barcode to see if there's a cartwheel savings for an item! I've got to figure out how to do that!!! I need some picture frames, I'd use cartwheel to do that next.

  12. I would use cartwheel to save money on clothes for my ever growing son!

  13. I just used Cartwheel a week or so ago to get a new set of sheets at 50% off, which was perfect because our dog had just DESTROYED our sheets! I use it a lot for grocery and apparel items though….and diapers!

  14. Cassandra D. Reply

    I would definitely use the Cartwheel app (and the giftcard) towards clothes for my kids! As the new season is coming they both need new wardrobes!! Target here I come!!! 🙂

  15. I have had so much saving with Cartwheel. It is a great tool. I have used it on crafts, clothing, food, toys, pet items, and toiletries. It is great.

  16. I've been using Cartwheel almost as long as it has been available. I use it for EVERYTHING I possibly can, and I fill up all of my "spots" before going shopping, trying to choose as much as will apply to what I will be buying that day. I do all of my grocery shopping at Target, and I also buy most everything else our family (family of 7!) uses from there. Great app and great giveaway! Thanks!!!

  17. What a great giveaway! First time hearing about Cartwheel. I would use the app to save money on clothes.

  18. We just had a Target come to town and i love it for convenience. I find terrific gift items there and I am a fanatic about the $1 bins. I also find fantastic graphic t-shirts there. I would get new clothes for the whole family, some tech products and groceries!

  19. I will definitely be using Cartwheel to save on kids' clothes and shoes.

    We are moving in a few weeks and to quote your blog I would use this "ALL FLR THE BOYS" to hook up their new room!

  21. I LOVE Cartwheel! I only just figured out about scanning the bar codes this past weekend, and it saved me $5 on what I had put in my cart. I always have grocery coupons tagged in there.

  25. I love target too! I'd use cartwheel on groceries I think. I'd never heard of it before!

  26. How could I not have known about cartwheel!? Thanks for the heads up. Maybe now clothing my boys will be that much umpire affordable.

  27. I would use the money to buy outdoor furniture so I can spend more time on my porch enjoying the beautiful North Carolina spring, summer and fall.

  28. Sarah Stevener Reply

    I have and will use the Cartwheel app to save money on clothes, personal hygiene items, food and many other great items at Target!

  29. I use Cartwheel to double-check all the items at check-out. I scan the items, and Cartwheel tells me if there's a coupon for them! Easy way to save a bit after all that shopping!

  30. I use cartwheel to save on groceries, toilet paper, jewelry and occasionally clothes! I love Target and all the ways I can save money.
