Target’s Cartwheel App Adds More Coupons
Posted on Thursday, May 5th, 2016 at 7:00 am
Are you using Target’s Cartwheel app? If not, there is now one more really good reason to start. Target recently added something new to their savings app that will make couponers very happy. They made a change that actually gives you access to more coupons than ever before.
Cartwheel is Target’s savings app. It offers hundreds of coupons from across every category in the Target store. In other words, Cartwheel offers coupons for groceries as well as coupons for clothing, household items, and more.
The coupons on Cartwheel are digital. Those coupons typically give you a percentage off of a particular item. Some of those offers included Target’s own product lines (Archer Farms and up&up). Others were for products were not part of Target’s brands, but that were sold at Target.
Users can look at the offers in Cartwheel and choose the ones that they want to use. When they are done shopping, all they have to do is let the cashier scan the barcode on the Cartwheel app. Shoppers can also use coupons that they clipped from other sources (including the printable coupons from the Target website). Those who have Target’s REDcard can use it as well to stack up the savings.
The more you use the Cartwheel app, the more offers you will receive. You start with a few “spots” where offers will appear. Use the Cartwheel app more to unlock additional offer spots. Put all of this together, and the Cartwheel app becomes a good way for frequent Target shoppers to save money on their purchases.
In April of 2016, Target announced that they had begun testing a new kind of deal on the Cartwheel app. They started offering digital manufacturer coupons that offered a dollar amount discount (instead of a percentage discount). Each of those coupons is single-use, only. Now, you can clip “real” digital coupons inside the Cartwheel app.
To make this work, Target has partnered with Quotient (otherwise known as Coupons.com). They are a third-party provider of digital coupons. When Target first integrated manufacturer coupons into the Cartwheel app, there were about 40 of them offered. That number may change and the coupons offered could vary.
Target points out that iPhone users can click the “share” button to send their Cartwheel list into the Notes app. Target suggests that Android users press and hold the screen once they are in the Cartwheel app for a shortcut to the barcode widget.
