The Best Way to Shop at Target

Cookie Jars // Bench {on sale!} // Frame // Socks // Mugs // Book

Like many {many!} of you, we're huge Target fans.  Every time we go, we stock up on baby necessities like baby diapers and wipes, clothes, home decor, house products, beauty finds and other seasonal items.  We easily spend several hundred dollars during each haul {luckily we only go about once a month as our closest Target is about an hour away}, which is why we'll take a deal when we can find one.

We already have the Target REDcard, which saves us 5% on each purchase, but I recently downloaded the Cartwheel app to see if there were any additional ways to save.  Instead of perusing the app beforehand, I shopped as I normally would and then whipped out the app during checkout.  I was able to easily search by either category or brand and add coupons to "my cartwheel" which then had one single barcode for the cashier to scan before I paid.  Easy peasy AND I saved over $30 which I will gladly take!

And the best part was that the offerings were all for items that I was already planning to buy, like Circo {25% off right now}, Champion {25% off right now}, Threshold {15-25% off select items}, Merona {10% off}, and more!  You can also search by collections like Valentine's Day items, Game Day Deals, Winter Cold Remdites, Pet Love, or Best Sellers.

While I've never been a huge coupon clipper, I really do love how easy the Cartwheel app is to use and how it collects all of my coupons in one place so it's easy to check out.  I suppose the next time, as I make my list, I should add my coupons beforehand {as a makeshift list} so that I ensure I'm really maximizing my savings.  Think smarter, not harder, right??

  2. Love this! I just did a post on random things I love & included the cartwheel app too! It's an awesome money saver for a Target addict like me! :) I usually add things that I know I will buy and search for items on the app while I'm in that aisle to make sure what I'm purchases is included in the discount.

  5. I use the Cartwheel app all the time. I actually buy things I wasn't planning on based on the coupons, 25% off Circo, sure why not get a few more $5 leggings - target strikes again!

  6. I love the Cartwheel app! I wish that the savings were as good as the printable coupons at Target.com but it's still a move in the right directions.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have the app, and I love it!! I always look through beforehand to see if there's anything I have been waiting to buy until it's on sale and definitely always check the baby section! I also check the discounts that are the highest to see if I can snag any really great deals!! :)

  8. I just downloaded target cartwheel yesterday before going to Target. So it's still new to me. I added coupons but walked out not using any of them because I got better deals with other substitutions or I bought stuff that I didn't have a coupon for.

  58. I installed the app awhile ago, but never used it. Saw this, tried it Sunday night (the best time to go to target!), and saved like $25! Thanks for reminding me. Regardless of what I go for, I leave with atleast $100 of stuff. Someone should do a study on that place!

  59. I LOVE Cartwheel so much....love that I can add coupons on my phone while I'm in the store!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've downloaded it, but I haven't used it much yet. I have added a couple coupons while seeing deals at the store. I wish they would put notices by the products you can get deals on with the app. Would sure help me use it more!

  77. I use the Cartwheel app every time I go to Target! I also print off coupons from their website before my shopping trips and often they're for the same products as Cartwheel has for double discounts! I've definitely started shopping more at Target since they came out with that app. It's amazing.
