Cartwheel by Target

by Kate from Frugal Living NW on May 19, 2013


Target has introduced a new way to save – Cartwheel. You will need to have a Facebook account to access the savings. As if Ibotta, Shopkick, Mobile coupons & Target printable coupons weren’t enough. With this amount of deductions involved we should be getting items for free!

Here’s how Cartwheel by Target works:

  • Sign up for Cartwheel (*Facebook is required)
  • Click one of the Collections buttons (Hot Deals seems like a great place to start)


  • Find a useful item and click on it.
  • The image will flip. Click add for the offer to be added to your Cartwheel account.
  • Each person has 10 offer spots to start and can earn more when you accumulate badges.

How to redeem your Cartwheel offers:

  • Show your Cartwheel barcode on your phone at checkout (you can find it via Facebook).
  • If you don’t have a smartphone, click on ‘My Cartwheel’, then ‘Redeem in Store’ and hand the paper to the cashier.

That’s it, folks!

Has anyone tried this out yet? What did you think?

*Please don’t leave comments complaining about the Facebook account thing. I don’t know why they linked it this way and it’s best if you take it up with Target on their Facebook page.

A big thanks to All Things Target for explaining this so well!

why do all the mobile coupons have to be for smartphones and cant they combine them all in one.. it’s getting to be crazy.,

Anyone know if it will be one barcode that recognizes multiple selected/purchased offers or will I have to scan five times for five different items?

I went and purchase 4 of the same item using a 5% cartwheel saving and it took the discount on all 4 items scanning only once.

sorry just realized you said different items…not sure on that one since it was my first cartwheel purchase I didn’t try more then 1 deal. I am going today though and plan to do multiple so I will let you know!

I did multiple and they came off all at once. Just like a king soopers card

I used it on Tums and my kid’s swim clothes. Worked well. My only challenge is remembering everything – coupons, mobile coupons, cartwheel and shop kick – and keeping two under two happy entertained when completing my transactions!

I think keeping 2 under 2 happy is the biggest challenge! :)

i used the cartwheel for nicorette lozenges for my husband. easily use a MQ and a TQ with the cartwheel. the amazing thing was the TQ came off first then the cartwheel percent then the MQ. I expected the additional percent to come off after all coupons. Especially when I had them scan the cartwheel last. Excited to apply the carthweel purina promo with the TQ and MQ AND Target card 5%off
