A guest post from Kayla
Recently my mom shared an opportunity to review Target’s new Cartwheel app. I’ve tried the coupon thing before and was a bit hesitant. But I’ve always had a great time shopping at Target and agreed to give it a look. Over my lunch break I went online to learn more about the app. I found out that I could quickly log in using my Facebook information. In no time I was finding great offers to add to my shopping list.
That evening it was very slow at my part-time bartending job so I poked around on my phone. Cartwheel took just a minute to download. My offers from earlier in the day were immediately available on my smartphone app so I could browse them and add more.
I used to shop at GAP because I thought their high prices were justified with high quality. Recently, though, I have discovered Mossimo jeans. They have a dependable fit and quality at more than half the price of the GAP jeans I used to wear. Imagine my surprise when I found a Cartwheel offer saving even more! I’ve been looking for a pair if high-waist skinny jeans. I also added an offer for my favorite Mossimo long-and-lean tank tops. And, because a girl can never have too many accessories, I added offers for belts and scarves.
I didn’t have much time to shop when I finally got to try out my Cartwheel app. Luckily it’s so easy to use. I found the high waist skinny jeans I was looking for, chose a lace-print tank top, and couldn’t resist a black and chartreuse scarf. At the checkout I mentioned that I had Cartwheel. The bar code on my cell phone was scanned and I saved $8.40 instantly. That was enough to buy another tank top!
I’ve splurged on plenty of new clothes and accessories for awhile, but the Cartwheel app can help me save on necessities as well. This week I’ve added offers for tampons and cotton swabs.
Another feature that I like about the Cartwheel app is that I can share my deals with my friends and see what they have found. I have a very thrifty friend who is great at using coupons.I can keep an eye on what she’s adding to know where the very best deals are. Cartwheel is a great app for couponers because you can use manufacturer’s coupons, plus your Cartwheel discount, plus discounts from your Target card.
It’s worth noting that I didn’t publicize the addition of cotton swabs and tampons to my list. It is easy to modify which of your offers are shared with friends and which are nobody’s business. I had to giggle when I noticed there is an “add privately” button to baby supplies as well. Unfortunately I have no baby offers to try to hide yet.
