Target deserves a big ol’ pat on the back for bringing us red bulls eye lovers a new easy way to save on specific items. When I heard about Target’s new Cartwheel app, it took me about 0.5 seconds to say, “Sign me up!” It’s a new easy way to load discounts right onto your smartphone (you can also print your discounts from your online account and bring it to the store with you). The app lets you pick what discounts you want, which you can look through according to category, new, trending, etc, and then you simply have the cashier scan your barcode when you check out!
I loaded several discounts onto my Cartwheel, including 25% off all Circo apparel and 20% off The One Spot (just when you thought that section couldn’t get any better, right?). You can see the check marks in the corners of the discounts I selected.
My family and I headed off to Target and you probably know where our first stop was…
The boys love to pick out a special something from The One Spot every time we go to Target. Usually I’m a mean mom and let them pick out what they want and make them wait until we’re done with our other shopping before we can go back and get it. It’s always good
bribery positive reinforcement. And I of course always find a few treasures for myself. I thought the little turquoise cans would be perfect for sewing room storage, and I couldn’t resist the cute gift bags. Some discounts have a maximum number of items per transaction (which I definitely exceeded in The One Spot), so keep that in mind as you’re checking out.
We also headed to the little girls’ clothing section. A girl can never have too many clothes, right??? It wasn’t long before Lola started hoarding her favorites into the cart, as usual. Don’t let her sweet face deceive you, there was a lot of screaming when she realized she wasn’t bringing it ALL home with her.
One thing I really like is that Cartwheel also allows you to scan an item’s barcode to see what discount may apply to it. It’s handy if you’re like me and have a major case of pregnancy brain :).
I loved how user friendly Cartwheel was, even as a first time user, and the cashier even commented that she was going to be using it for some shopping after her shift too. It’s a great new tool that I’ll definitely be using every time I’m at Target!
