One way to save money is to shop at stores that have reasonable prices. Target is high on the list of those who are trying to stay within a budget. The low prices are attractive to people who need to save money. There are also plenty of other ways to save money at Target. Here are some quick tips to maximize your savings for your next trip to Target.
Check the Weekly Ad
Before you go shopping, take a minute to visit the Target website and check out their weekly ad. What’s on sale right now? As you are browsing, look for things that you have been planning on purchasing. The best time to buy them is when they go on sale.
For example, a lot of parents know that they need to buy their children school supplies. That can be done anytime between when school lets out for the summer and the start of the next school year. They should check the weekly Target ad to discover when the back-to-school sales start. That’s the time to shop!
If you prefer, you can sign up on the Target website and have them send you their weekly ad by email. It makes it easier to find when you want to check it out.
Look for Coupons
The Target website has printable coupons for all kinds of things. They even have coupons for groceries! Pick the ones that you like, print them out, and take them to the store with you. Some of them will have codes attached to them. That means you can use that coupon while making an online purchase from the Target website.
Take Advantage of the Matchups
A “matchup” is a couponing technique that can save you a lot of money. It involves pairing coupons with current sales and special offers in order to get the lowest price possible. Every week, FreeCoupons.com puts together a list of all the Target Coupon Matchups. We do the math for you!
Cartwheel is a free app from Target that is available for both iPhone and Android. Download it and then sign in with either your email address or your Facebook. Start browsing for special offers that are only available for people who use Cartwheel.
Show your mobile device to the cashier when you are ready to check out. He or she can scan the barcodes on it to access the special deals that you want to use. You can stack the savings you find on Cartwheel with other coupons, sales, or the Target REDcard savings offers.
Use the Cartwheel app to share the special offers that you think are awesome. Doing so is one way that you can work towards unlocking additional offer spots. The more you share, use the app, and interact through it, the more offers you can receive.
