Saving Money at Target & A $1,000 Target GiftCard Giveaway!


***This Sweepstakes Is Now CLOSED***
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
I love Target! I have been shopping at Target since the mid 90's. They have wonderful home decor, clothing and now that I am married, have kiddos, and have a household to run, I do my grocery shopping there. Because of that a few months back we signed up for The Red Card. We figured, heck why not save 5% every time we shop there? We were basically throwing money away by not signing up. 



As if 5% off was not good enough I was recently told about the new Target Cartwheel App!

From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
You can use the new Cartwheel App from your phone, laptop or desktop computer. 

It is fairly easy to use once you figure it out. Here is how I use it. First I sign into the Cartwheel App from my desktop to browse all the offers.
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
They have so many categories with over 700 offers (coupons) to choose from.

From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
After you choose the category you want to browse you just click on the offer you want to add to your Cartwheel.

From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
There are even offers for Target Cafe! This is a plus for Oldest & Littliest because every Friday after school you can find us browsing the Target aisles with snack in tow.

From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
The most exciting thing about Cartwheel are all the offers for groceries. With all men in the house I am sure you can  imagine how expensive grocery shopping can be!;) 
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
A drawback to the Cartwheel app is that you can only add 17 offers/coupons to your Cartwheel. This means you should choose wisely. I am hoping that in the future they will change that.
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
The app keeps up with your offers/coupons and also how much you have saved...or at least it is supposed to keep up with how much you save. I will get back to that in a moment.
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
After I loaded all the offers/coupons I wanted onto my Cartwheel I headed off to Target with phone in hand. My first offer/coupon I took advantage of was, of course, at the Target Cafe. What trip to Target is not complete without a popcorn Combo!? All I did was show the girl at the checkout my bar code. She scanned it and I saved. Easey Peasey.
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
These are the items I saved on with the Cartwheel App during my last visit to Target.
Here is where the savings come into play and my adrenaline starts rushing!;) T-shirt for Oldest normally $12.99  with Cartwheel App just $10.39. Boys socks normally 6.99 with Cartwheel App just $5.24. The biggie and most impressive savings was on the king size sheets I purchased. They were normally $59.99 and I paid only $44.99 with the Cartwheel App!

I wanted to see just how much I actually saved using The Cartwheel App so I came home and added it all up. Without The Cartwheel App my total was $109.19 BEFORE tax. By using The Cartwheel App my total BEFORE tax was just $85.35. That is a savings of $23.84 BEFORE tax and BEFORE my additional 5% I saved using my Target Red Card. Yes you heard that right you still get the additional 5% off when you use your Target Red Card on top of your Cartwheel savings. A win win in my book!
From My Front Porch To Yours Target Cartwheel App Review
There are a few drawbacks to the App in my opinion. One drawback which I mentioned earlier is that you are only allowed to add 17 offers/coupons to your Cartwheel. The second and I am sure it is just a kink and honestly has no effect on my true savings is the fact that it did not calculate my savings accordingly. The App says I only saved $.41 when I clearly saved $23.84 before tax. The app is for in store only purchases which is not a big deal.
Pluses  are that you can use Cartwheel offers over and over until they expire. They do have a daily limit though of 6 Cartwheel barcode scans, meaning you can receive the discount on everything on your Cartwheel list up to 6 times every day. Cartwheel offers are typically weekly, monthly and quarterly. In my book Target's Cartwheel App gets two thumbs up!

  2. I have never used the Cartwheel app but my niece does so when I just checked it out, her account showed up too. I will have to really take the time to check it out so I don't have a favorite yet but I will. Thanks for sharing the app and entering me for a chance to win.

  4. Hi Pamela,
    I love the Target Cartwheel. I use it all the time. The thing I love is when you get savings on top of already sale priced items and then another 5% on top of that with the Target Card. It is awesome sometimes on one item you can save over 60% off. Thanks for the chance at the win for the Target Gift Card. Love Target!! Wooo Hooo! Would love to win.

  5. Hi Pamela, I adore the Target Cartwheel app and love the promotions they run. Today they had 40% off Valentines for one day only so I had an excuse to hope on over and grab a deal for my 3 boys! I love how you can search by brand too so if you are standing in line and have some items in your cart you weren't sure about...search and boom...another wonderful discount to be had! I find myself at Target more and buying more just for the savings!

  51. I love cartwheel - I'm trying to really watch my money closely so that my fiance and I can have a great wedding without going into debt. target helps me do that not only by offering me everything I need in one shop, but also by accepting manufacturer's coupons, offering target-specific coupons, AND by using Cartwheel to really stack up the savings. and unlike other "sales", Cartwheel ALWAYS offer discounts on stuff I really use (I can almost always find deals on pet supplies, personal care, snacks and even clothing items for everyone!).
