Have you heard of Target’s new Cartwheel savings program? It’s still in Beta, but I think it has some pretty awesome potential! You can save as much as an additional 30% off on items you buy everyday at Target. This includes grocery, health & beauty, household, clothing, baby items and a whole bunch more. The best part is that you can actually combine these new Cartwheel offers with your coupons. You should be allowed to use one Cartwheel offer with a manufacturer’s coupon, and a Target coupon…talk about some serious triple stacking savings potential!
You will need to have a Facebook account to earn savings as well as a smartphone so that you can redeem this additional savings at the store. It should also be possible to print your bar code if you don’t happen to have a smartphone. Target is hoping that you will be sharing these deals with your Facebook friends, thus the need for a Facebook account. Each time you select a Cartwheel offer it will appears on your Facebook feed so your friends can see which additional savings you are getting in on. Remember, you can always change your privacy setting on Facebook to keep more of your information private.
To get started with this new savings program, you’ll first have to login with your Facebook account. After you have done that then you can start browsing through the offers. You can do this by clicking on the Collections box, where you’ll find all sorts of savings categories. If you would like to select an offer, you’ll just tap on the card followed by the “add button”. These selected offers will then be added to your Cartwheel. You will initially be able to select 10 offers, and then after that you can earn more through badges, which are earned when you redeem selected offers. You can also click on the “hints” button to see how to earn additional badges.
When you’re ready to head out to Target to purchase your items and your offers are in your cartwheel, you can either print your Cartwheel barcode , or you can use your mobile device in the store to access your barcode.
Remember that an offer can easily be removed if you change your mind and don’t want to take up one of you 10 spaces with it. You can also check on the expiration date by clicking on the card in your Cartwheel.
Some important details to keep in mind:
- A Cartwheel discount will be taken after any applicable Target coupon and before your manufacturer coupon.
- You can redeem all the Cartwheel offers on your Cartwheel list at the time of your transaction. For example, if you have 10 offers on your list when you scan your barcode at a Target store, and you’re purchasing items tied to all 10 offers, you’ll save on all 10 items.
- You can save on your entire Cartwheel list up to 6 times per day.
I’m really excited to give this new savings program a try, and of course we would love to hear about what you think about this as well, so boogie on down to the comments section and let us know!
