New way to save at Target: Cartwheel coupons

Posted May 26, 2013


Target has rolled out a new way to save called Cartwheel. You sign up through your Facebook account (yes, you have to have a Facebook account to get these coupons) and then you can redeem the coupon in-store on your mobile device or with a printed coupon. The best part is that you can stack these savings with other coupons!


Most of the coupons are worth 5% - 15% off the purchase price. You'll find coupons for grocery items, clothes, furniture, baby stuff and more.

Once you enroll, you can add 10 coupons immediately and then you can add more when you earn "badges" for various reasons, like having friends on Faebook who are already signed up.

It appears that you can use each offer up to 4 times for the same item. 

Getting Started

To get started, go to the Cartwheel website and click on My Cartwheel to sign up.

You will have to log into your Facebook page to enroll. When it gave me to the option to share my savings, I picked Only Me so my friends pages were not spammed.

Once you have signed up, you will see a ton of digital coupons to pick from. Click on the ones you want and add them to your Cartwheel cart.

When you are ready to shop at the store, print out the list by going to My Cartwheel and clicking on Redeem in store or show the list on your mobile device at your local store. The list has a bar code that the cashier can scan to deduct the coupons.

If you are a little confused, you are not alone. I suggest you read the FAQ section for answers to many questions you will have.

    I have used this and it's great. Most of the items in cartwheel can also be stacked with the current coupons at:

    Thanks for the info on this new Target feature, Faye - I thought it was only for those with smart phones, etc. (which I don't have.) Great to know I have another option to save.

    I was about to ask if these are considered Target coupons - because if they were, that would mean we wouldn't be able to use the higher-value Target coupons with them that they make available at, but I found the answer:

    "Limit no more than one manufacturer coupon, one Target coupon and one Cartwheel offer per item."

    I've used it a few times already. I just take my iPad to the store and the cashier scans the barcode. Very simple! Not a huge savings but since you can use one target opponents and one manufacturers coupon per item.....every little bit helps!
