Target has launched a new discount app called Cartwheel. You access Cartwheel via Facebook, selecting the discounts you'd like to use for your shopping trip. Cartwheel generates a barcode that you send to your smartphone. Then, when you go to the store, the cashier swipes your phone and applies the discounts to what you're buying.
I find this interesting because you have to utilize both Facebook and the Cartwheel app on your phone to receive these discounts. Business Insider is already asking if Cartwheel is too complicated to be embraced by the masses:
Target's new promotion, dubbed Cartwheel, has one small flaw: It's incredibly complicated. Here's how it works.
Go to Facebook. Then search for Target Cartwheel, because it's on a separate page from Target's own Facebook page. Once you've logged into Cartwheel, you might want to go back to your Facebook privacy settings to prevent the app from automatically posting about everything you're checking out.
Then, browse the discounted collections on Cartwheel and select the ones you like. (I'm greatly simplifying this process — there's a whole thing with "collections" and "badges" that Target wants to you to go through.)
After that, get into your car to drive to a Target store. I'm serious, this is how it works. Then find the items in the store and take them to the checkout. At the checkout, call up your Cartwheel page on your phone and tap the "redeem in store" button. That generates a barcode, which is then scanned by the checkout staff.
Hey - you just got 10% off!

Target has a new "Buy 4, Get $5 Target Gift Card" sale running on a variety of beauty and personal care items! The deal runs through 3/23, so we've got a lot of time for this one. There are many items in the ad, and none of them had prices. (Of course they didn't. That would be too easy, right?) I gathered prices for you at the Algonquin, Illinois Target location, and I'm showing all of the included items so you can decide which deals are best for you.
- FREE Suave Keratin Infusion stylers
- .50 Suave Moroccan Keratin shampoo and conditioner
UPDATE: Suave Moroccan shampoo and conditioner are shown on the cover of the ad but are apparently NOT triggering the gift card! Take your ad from the 3/10 RP if you attempt this one so you have proof that it's included..!
- .70 Degree deodorant and .70 Clear Men's shampoo or conditioner
- $1.24 Tresemme haircare
- $4.49 Simple Foaming Cleanser with FREE Simple cleansing wipes
