Easy Extra Money Idea of the Day:
If you’re a Target shopper like me you may not have known about the Target Cartwheel app. Basically you install the app on your iPhone and it can save you some money in a number of ways!
If you’re a focused shopper and know exactly what you need, you can search for the items in the app before you even head out and see if there are any current deals (ranging from 5-50% off). Or if you are in the store and simply browsing around, you can also scan an item’s barcode (with the phones camera) and the app will let you know if there is any discount available. As an added bonus, it will also let you know if a similar item is on sale instead. For example if you scan a bottle of Pepsi and it isn’t on sale but Coke is, it will let you know in case you want to make the swap.
In either case once you match an item you digitally “clip” the coupon. After all relevant coupons have been clipped, the app generates a barcode which you show to the cashier. The cashier scans the barcode at the end of the transaction and the coupons are automatically applied!
Target Cartwheel is a free app available on Apple iOS devices
