I think my favorite feature is the ability to scan items to see if there is an offer (coupon) for them. (With over 700 offers on the app, my odds are usually pretty good!) So if I haven't already marked an offer before going in the store, this is a quick and easy way for me to see if I can save on extra items not on my list that might find their way into my cart. (not that that EVER happens.)
When you're ready to checkout, just hand your phone to the cashier and they scan the barcode just once - all your offers are wrapped into that one little barcode so it makes it quick and easy! On a recent shopping trip, I was able to save almost $15 using the Cartwheel app! As luck would have it, Patrick was with me and got to witness firsthand how awesome this app is. I know I sound crazy, but it really was a thrill! This happened before I was given the opportunity to write this post and I'm so bummed I don't still have the receipt to share the picture with you guys. But I assure you, it did happen, and I know it will happen again soon at the rate I frequent Target. :)
I've never saved that much on something like this using coupons. It really got me thinking how much more I could save if I would put forth a little more effort, because Target allows you to stack other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers’ coupons with it - and not to mention that fabulous 5% discount on top of that if you have a REDcard!
I'll be honest - there's a lot more to Cartwheel than I even knew! I learned lots of fun stuff about it when I took on this opportunity. For example, you can use your Facebook login to sign up for Cartwheel. By doing this, you can see what offers your friends have on their Cartwheel lists. I've found some great stuff this way! If you want to use your Facebook login, but don't want your Cartwheel activity posted to Facebook, you can manage that via the app privacy settings. You can also add offers to your list as “private” if you don't want something specific shared on Facebook.
