Cartwheel is an app that you can use on your desktop, tablet, mobile web, iPhone or Droid. Cartwheel lists over 700 offers, or coupons, at any given time, with new offers every day. You choose items you are interested in purchasing, add them to your Cartwheel, present your personal barcode to the cashier and your savings are added at checkout.
How easy is it to use? Very. You can sign up through Facebook or through your email account. Since I already had an account at Target.com, I used my sign in information to access Cartwheel. Then I proceeded to look at all the available offers and checked the ones I wanted to add to my cart. I printed out my list from my computer, which also included my personal barcode.
I also downloaded the Cartwheel App for my iPhone. You can do the same thing I did online on your phone or tablet, using the barcode on your phone or tablet app at checkout. You can also use your phone app to scan any barcode in the store to see if there is a Cartwheel offer for that item. Pretty neat.
After printing out my list, I headed to my local Target. See how the list includes a picture of the item, the discount and when that discount expires? Some items are limited to a quantity of 4 per offer, while other can be used as many times as you wish until the offer expires. If there are limits, you will see that information on your list. You can’t see it but just to the right at the top of the Cartwheel List is my barcode.
You can also use your Cartwheel with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturer’s coupons and your REDcard discount. So the savings can really add up.
I grabbed a cart, looked for the items on the list, decided what I wanted to buy and headed toward the checkout.
What did I buy? Floor cloths, trash bags, bleach, cotton balls and a 5 lb. box of Clementine oranges. (Mmmm! I love Clementines!) I had to add the Peet’s French Roast Coffee, though it wasn’t on the Cartwheel list. Peet’s is my favorite and Target carries it. That makes me happy.
I trotted off to the checkout and the cashier scanned my barcode. Instant savings.
It couldn’t have been easier. There weren’t any big ticket items in my cart, but I easily saved a couple of dollars on these five household basics. But the list of Cartwheel offers covers every department in the store. Today there were savings on televisions, clothing, bedding, furniture, you name it. I’m thinking that this new app will come in very handy. It’s so easy to access Cartwheel, check out the daily or weekly deals, and then head to the store with your barcode and list.
I am someone who never remembers to clip coupons, try as I might. So this app is made for me. It makes it very easy for me to seek out savings on essentials.
By the way, Cartwheel also has something called Badges. When you start out on Cartwheel you have 10 spots available on your list. As you earn savings with Cartwheel, you can earn badges that reward you with more spots, increasing the amount of items you can have on your list. I earned another spot just by using Cartwheel for the first time at my local Target.
I’m sold on it. It’s simple, easily accessible and it saves me money. A win-win.
