Do You Cartwheel?

Today I downloaded the Cartwheel for Target App. In theory, I like the idea of this one better than Ibotta. Seems like less work. I often would forget to scan my receipts and the bar codes of the products once I got home. So I like the convenience of it.... however, I'm still not really sure how it works.

I like that you can use it with manufacturers coupons, Target coupons and still get the Red Card discount. I do wonder how often I'll use it. I think one of the tricks to using that kind of app is to use it ONLY on stuff you are buying anyway. Otherwise it will just cost you money. I also still have $75 of a $100 gift card left, so I'm thinking I might try it out some using that. We are hitting a real money tight, so I foresee a lot of groceries coming from where they are "free" in the next month.

Have you tried it out? What do you think?


  1. I have a Windows phone so its not available which really stinks. I would definitely use it.

  2. yeah, I think I might try it out this weekend.

  3. I live 50 miles north of you! I just now saw you on Sluggy's site. I could not find and email for you, so I had to talk this route. Can you email me? Address is under my blog title. Thanks.

  4. I have used it quite a bit and you don't need a smart phone to use it (I don't have one). You can log into the Cartwheel website and add your coupons and then just print out and take to store. It's great when you can stack that with Target coupons, mfg coupons, the cartwheel discount and get another 5% off with Red card!
