I am not a coupon-er, although I wish I were. I have some really good friends that are mind-blowing at it….but I just couldn’t keep up. The clipping, the filing, the wrong math additions (that’s a personal issue) was just more than I could do—which is completely my fault. But I know that there are good savings (my brain says it)! And every time I walk into a store, part of me wants to follow someone around with a coupon binder to soak in all of their couponing knowledge because let’s face it, we all really do need the coupons. But then the realism hits and I don’t ever do it.
So recently when we were approached with a new app that holds clips and scans the coupons for you—I was all about it. Because, hey, there was no clipping or filing involved. It’s Target’s new Cartwheel App and if anyone knows me, I am in Target at least once a week. Sometimes more than once a week because I will share a secret with you……when I need a break from kiddos, I go there and walk the aisles and peruse all the pretty things. Please tell me at least someone else does that?
But you also have to know something else about me. I am technologically challenged. Majorly. Like, I “just joined the world of smart phones in the last 60 days challenged only because my husband pulled me into modern society” and I have to get my kids to show me how to work ANYTHING on my phone. I wish I were joking. I am constantly asking an 8 year old or an 11 year old how to do anything.
But I was going to give this one a try. I was going to download my own app. So, I text my husband. I think whenever my husband gets a text from me, he is shocked.
“How do I buy an app?” (The kids were at school.)
“Umm….go to the app store.” (Okay, that was the most brilliant answer ever.)
Where is the app store?
So, I find the app store icon and download Target’s new Cartwheel App–ALL. BY. MYSELF. (I was so proud….it’s the little things sometimes.) But guess what– it is EASY! Even a technologically challenged person can do it! Hip, hip hooray!!! For real. And do you want to know what the first two coupons clipped were?
Yes. Because they are just yummy.
But I did learn all about the program which they are calling “coupons with a whole new spin” and I certainly believe them. Their belief is to add to the savings on things you already buy onto your phone. Score one for Target. AND (I am so excited to try this out) you can scan barcodes on the shelves to see if there is a coupon for that item. WOW! Now, I only need to take my 8 and 11 year old with me to the store next time to teach me how to use the barcode scanner.
Thanks Target for saving my couponing. I do think that this is one thing that I can do!!!
Now one reader from participating blogs will have a chance to win $1,000 Target GiftCard®. So tell me why Target is your favorite store!

Target is my favorite store because I can always find something fashionable whether it’s for me or the kids within my budget.
I LOVE Target! The very first thing I do when I get there is browse the dollar section. They always have fun little things for my kids there. And sometimes it’s my place for escape too :).
I love Target, because like you I like to browse all of the pretty things but am also able to pick up some of the necessaries like shampoo or sandwich bags. And as for technologically challenged…I still don’t have a smart phone:)
I love Cartwheel! The best is when I have a coupon AND Cartwheel discount!
I love Target because they always seem to have what I need at pretty good prices. We’re having a baby soon and have picked up quite a few baby things there already!
I love the one-stop shopping at Target. Sometimes it’s just nice to be able to go in and find everything on my list in one place!
Target is my absolute favorite store because I can always find things I need (and love) at good prices! Also, their kids clothes are perfectly priced!
I love Target because their stores are clean, orderly and the staff is very willing to help!

Mary Ann says
I love to browse the clearance
Cathie Sandoval says
I love target because they have a bit more high end selection than the other two large retailers in my town (not naming names lol) I do the same thing; go and jut walk the aisles. They always have stuff I can’t find at other stores.

I use this app and I absolutely love it! I love that you can scan your items and it will search for a coupon for you!! Amazeballs!
I’ve always enjoyed shopping at Target compared to other big name stores. The organization,the variety of items and just the atmosphere. It’s a lot less hectic and I absolutely love the majority of the brands they carry. They’re a store that carries quality items without the hefty price tags for the most and I love them for it. 🙂
I love Target for all their fresh fun colors!

I love Target because I love how they arrange the store. The colors are so beauty I could spend hours in the housewares department let alone the fashion dept.
I love Target! Everything is pretty and it’s relaxing to wander down the aisles. Plus, with my cartwheel + red card + coupons I am always saving!
I love Target! However, the closest one to me is an hour away so I do not go unless I’m already going there. But I do think the quality and selection of cute stuff is so much better than Walmart, which we do have in my town.
I also appreciate that I can get most of what my family needs at Target.
Target has everything!! I do the same thing, just go and walk around(get away by myself for a while. 🙂
Target and I go waaaay back.
Target is my favorite store because it makes me forget what I go there for every time. I could spend hours in target and still need to take more time to see everything.
Target is my favorite because they always have affordable, on-trend items for my family and I love their seasonal items.
My husband and I love Target! It is not usually as crazy for running and grabbing a few things that are needed! Love the dollar spot as well! Target makes me happy! 🙂
Sharyn Loy says

Target was also my go-to when my husband would get home and I needed a minute to myself… But that was back when we had one a few blocks away. Now I’m 2 1/2 HOURS (!!!) from the closest one, so I enevitably want to drop buckets of money I don’t have when I get there… This gift card would help! 😉
Kelly P says

Yes, I love the Cartwheel app! I’ve saved over $100 so far. I can combine it with the mobile coupons and save even more. I like to sort all the deals by percent off and then expiring to see what I want to pick up and when.

Target is my favorite store because they have everything in one place. I can get all my shopping done and don’t have to go to a whole bunch of stores to get it done. Plus I get 5% back on things that I already buy anyways.

robyn jones says
I like Target because they have the best clothing selection. They are also so very clean and neat.
Target is my favorite store because it has everything I need for a decent price. I don’t have to spend my whole day running from store to store to pick up TP, groceries, socks, and dinnerware. I can do it all in one place. I also love the aesthetic. There is always something beautiful to look at and that definitely makes it easier to spend time there.
The cartwheel app looks pretty amazing. I’ve seen it floating around but had no idea how useful it was. The fact that I can scan an item I want to buy and it will automatically check it for coupons is pretty darn awesome.

Every time I go to Target the person at the check out asks if I found everything I was looking for. My response “Yes and I found everything I wasn’t looking for and didn’t know I needed!” There’s no other store where I can spend $200 in one go and feel like it was all totally worth it.

I love shopping at Target because … I lived in Colorado from age 6 to 12, then we moved to the South. I could not believe there were no Targets anywhere around. We had always shopped there, I loved the toy section most…lol! Fast forward to my 40’s and Target’s being built in the South. I love walking around the toy section now with my kids, reliving memories, and I get 5% off on everything using their card! 😉
