My Love For Target’s Cartwheel

By Sheila Arkee

When it comes to incredible savings that are possible at the push of a button, you can’t get much easier than Target Cartwheel.

While there are those who scoff at the unnecessary complications modern technology has to offer, I for one, fully embrace it and perish the thought of being without. Smart phones have made my life as a single mom infinitely easier. From blogging on the go, to answering emails during story time at the library, and not having to worry about printing and clipping coupons because they’re on my phone, technology is awesome. Such is the case with Target Cartwheel. What’s that, you ask?

Ladies and gentlemen, if you’ve never experienced Target Cartwheel, may I have the pleasure of introducing you to something that is completely fantastic. Cartwheel is an app that can be used on your desktop, tablet, mobile web or iPhone and Droid apps. There are over 700 coupons available that are available to use on in-store purchases at Target only. You can use Cartwheel with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons and your REDcard discount, which makes potential savings quite lucrative!

Logging in to Cartwheel is simple and can be done via access to your Facebook login or your Target.com login. If you’re concerned about privacy, no worries – you can easily set your preferences to private so your Facebook friends can’t see your activity.

Here’s the really cool part about Cartwheel – you can use any offer on your list as many times as you want until the offer expires, with the following exceptions: limit of 4 items per offer, per transaction; limit of 6 Cartwheel scans per day.

Using Cartwheel is extremely easy – it just takes a single scan barcode that’s unique to you that just needs to be scanned at the cash register after any other coupons. Easy peasy! Also, you can curate collections to make shopping easier, and collect badges as you reach savings milestones and share on social media to earn more spots on your Cartwheel list.

So what are you waiting for? Get Target Cartwheel in your life if it’s not already! To download the app for yourself, use this link: http://tgt.biz/TargetCartwheel_A123
