Today I decided I would save money with the Target Cartwheel App. I stumbled across it by accident really, but I thought I’d give it a try since I had some lunchbox shopping to do anyway. I downloaded the app, synced it to my Facebook account, and then clicked up to 16 offers that I wanted to use on my shopping trip.
Saving Money at Target with the Target Cartwheel App
One of the best things about this app is that you can combine discounts with your Redcard, target printable coupons, manufacturers coupons, and sale items. For example, I needed to purchase some Vitamin Waters this week that were on sale for .88 each. I had 1 target printable coupon for buy 4 get 1 free, 4 vitamin water manufacturer coupons for .75/2, and 10% off in the Target Cartwheel app:
- 8 x .88=7.04
- – .88 (target printable free coupon) = 6.16
- -$3 (manufacturer coupons) = 3.16
- -.70 (Target Cartwheel app coupon) = 2.46
- and if you have a redcard another 5% off (-.12) = 2.34
That works out to be about .30 per 20oz bottle, which is pretty good for vitamin water. It’s cheaper than Costco anyway. I’m sure some of my brilliant money saving friends could have come out getting paid for these waters, but I’m not that intense about couponing. Long gone are my binder days. I miss those days, but I just don’t have the time anymore.
Stack Six Levels of Savings at Target
Anytime I go shopping I always have a trifecta of savings by using store rewards cards, digital coupons, and sale items. That way I get discounts without much effort. I try to pay with cash so that I don’t overspend, but many savvy shoppers use rewards or points credit cards for additional savings. With the Target Cartwheel app, you can combine up to 6 levels of savings:
- Sale items
- Target printable coupons
- Manufacturer coupons
- Redcard 5% discount
- In store promotions: buy x get $x Target gift cards
- and the Target Cartwheel App discount
On my shopping trip I saved $3 using the target cartwheel app and about $30 in other coupons and discounts on items I was going to purchase anyway. For the few minutes it took me to familiarize myself with the app, it was worth the time.
You can find the Target cartwheel app in iTunes and in Google play. Just search for Target Cartwheel and it should come right up.
