What is Cartwheel?
Cartwheel is a program that offers from 5% to 50% off certain items when you shop in store at Target. You can select offers and use the % off discount at Target in addition to stacking a manufacturer coupon, a Target store coupon, your Target Redcard discount, and then any rebate offers too! Combine the Target Cartwheel discount with any or all of these other savings and cash back offers and end up with great savings or even potential moneymakers!
Note: Per Target policy, Cartwheels are not intended to further reduce an item that you price matched with another store. It says you can use CW when price matching but is a bit deceiving because it allows you to use it before the price match. If the item is still cheaper at another store after applying a Target coupon and/or Cartwheel, then you will get the price match price. In other words, no you are not supposed to use it to further reduce a price matched price. That’s not to say it has not happened, but we do urge you to follow their policy.
How Does Cartwheel Work?
Note: We urge you to check out both the app and the Cartwheel via web browser. Sometimes there are “hidden” deals that you can see on the web that you may not see on your app. Also, with the app, you can use the free wi-fi and scan items in the store to check for an offer!
How is the Cartwheel Discount Calculated?
The Cartwheel barcode should be scanned after all items have been rung up and all other coupons have been used. The % discount will then calculate on all qualifying purchase totals less any Target store coupon (paper or mobile) that has been used. In other words, the calculation is based on the price after store coupons but before manufacturer coupon discounts. (The exception to this is a Target store coupon for a percent off which will not be considered for the cw calculation.)
NOTE: It makes no difference on the order you give them to the cashier. You cannot get a higher discount by scanning the CW before the Target coupon. It is programed to do the calculation at the end and will deduct the store coupon prior to calculating the % off.
How many times can a Cartwheel offer be used?
You can use the same discounts over as many times as you like until they expire. There is a daily limit of 6 barcode scans. This is not an item limit. You may received all discounts on your Cartwheel list 6 times per day and you can do that daily until the offers expire. The offers will drop off your list of active offers on your phone or online when they have expired or if you remove it.
Note: Be sure to read the details of each offer. (Click details on your computer or click the dots for more info on your app) Although the above rules apply to most of the offers, they do have offers that have limits such as limit one. This is an overall limit for this item per account, so it will not apply to 4 items per transaction or 6 times per day as stated above.
New users will start with 10 available slots to add offers. Additional slots are earned by unlocking Cartwheel badges for accomplishments such as your first discount or saving increments you’ve achieved. You will gain more slots, the more you use it. Don’t worry about not having enough though, because you can add and remove as you wish while the offer is still valid. If you’re not buying the shoes today and need a slot for the peanut butter, then remove the shoes, add the peanut butter, and then add back the shoes when you are done!
