APP SNAP: Cartwheel by Target: Apply multiple offers with one scan
If the data hack at Target has you looking for a new place to shop, the app Cartwheel by Target might make you reconsider.
This free app for iOS and Android allows users to easily browse all of the store’s available coupons, save them in their virtual cart and use them at the check out with one simple scan.
Users register for the app using their Facebook account or email address. Then, they can immediately start saving. Coupons are displayed in categories by departments such as baby, grocery and electronics. From there, subcategories and other viewing options allow users to find just what they’re looking for. There’s also a search option.
Coupons, which range from 5 to 50 percent off, are each displayed with the discount, item name and photo. Clicking the coupon allows the user to view more specific details about the offer, as well as the expiration date. And, the coupons automatically disappear from the app when they expire, so there’s no hassle.
To utilize the offer, the user can click “add,” and the coupon will be added to the user’s cartwheel. Users can add as many as 15 items to their cartwheel, all of which can be applied to the transaction with one simple scan.
The best part about this app is that one can use 15 coupons during one transaction without slowing down the line or attracting unwanted attention as “the crazy coupon lady.” All the discounts are applied to the transaction with one scan.
You don’t need to be an experienced coupon-clipper to save with Cartwheel. The app is super simple, easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing. Cartwheel by Target is definitely worth the download.
