Target Cartwheel Savings Program

Are you getting all the savings you possibly can at Target?  In addition to Target printable coupons and Target Mobile Coupons, Target also has Cartwheel by Target offers.  These offers are an engaging, choose-your-own-offer savings experience that will run through Facebook (although you do not need to be a Facebook member to join).

1.Choose Your Own Offers

Cartwheel lets guests choose their own offers and also lets Facebook friends share offers with each other.  You can access Cartwheel at cartwheel.target.com on your computer, tablet or mobile device.

2. Redeem Offers In-store

Offers are redeemed in-store through a single barcode in the Cartwheel app and may be used multiple times. You can also print the barcode from your computer. Present the barcode to the cashier at checkout (either a printout or on your mobile device) just as you would any other coupon. The cashier will scan the barcode and you will save on all the Cartwheel offers in your cart.

3. Discounts Up to 50% off



Savings will vary, with most discounts between 5 and 50 percent. There are some rare times when we will even find savings up to 75% off.

4. Stack Offers

Untitled One of the best features of the Target Cartwheel offers is that you can stack different offers along with it.  For instance, you can stack a manufacturer coupon along with a Target Coupon together with a Target Cartwheel offer for even more savings. And of course you can always use your Target RedCard 5% discount.

Here is how the discounts come off:


  1. Target Coupons are deducted
  2. Then Target Cartwheel offers are deducted based on the price of the item after any Target Coupons
  3. Then Manufacturer Coupons are deducted
  4. Finally, Target RedCard discount is deducted based on the price of the item after all the above discounts are deducted

5. Offers Updated Weekly

Untitled   Most of the Target Cartwheel offers are updated on Sunday mornings.  Also, the higher value offers will sometimes have shorter expiration dates so be sure to keep on eye on those dates.

6. Earn Badges for More Savings Offers

Screen Shot 2015-12-15 at 1.01.58 PM When you first sign up for Target Cartwheel you will automatically get 10 offers to redeem per transaction.  The more badges you unlock, the more offers you’ll receive.

Here are some ways to unlock more badges:

  • Interact with your friends
  • Use your cartwheel offer with your redcard
  • Redeem 4 offers in a single month

7. Scan Products for Savings



Use the built in scanner in the Cartwheel app to scan products while in the store to check for any cartwheel offers.

8. Offer Limits


Each Cartwheel offer may be used for up to a maximum of 4 qualifying items per offer  per transaction, unless otherwise noted.  There is also a limit of 1 Cartwheel Barcode per transaction and 6 cartwheel barcode transaction per day.

    Well, if I’m doing this right it’s almost like making a list of stuff you want to buy that will have an extra % off of the price. I put some household staples in there, will print off my list next time I go and see if it works. With other coupons this might be some real saving action.

  • Melissa

    This sounds great, but where do you get Target Mobile Coupons? I’ve been looking but can never find. Am I looking in the wrong place?

    • Sylvia Quintana Nieves

      download the Target app and the drop down to deals & coupons.

  • Jill

    This sounds pretty cool. I’m assuming you can stack coupons…

    • Sylvia Quintana Nieves

      yes but watch the cashier as sometimes the coupons don’t go through. I stand there like a hawk. If they don’t go through, go to customer service.

      • Don

        1 Manufacturer coupon, 1 Target coupon, and 1 Cartwheel per item (up to 4 items). You can use 1 BOGO of either Manufacturer or Target, and the second item will be free; however to use $off on the first item the coupon must be opposite whatever the BOGO was…ie.. The BOGO was manufacturer, then the only way a $off the bought item can be accepted is if it’s a Target $off.

  • Dawn

    According to the site, you are allowed 1 Manufacturers coupon, 1 Target Coupon and 1 cartwheel coupon per item. Plan on using this later this evening. sounds pretty cool.

    How do you join without Facebook? There’s no link to do so, and everywhere I click it wants access to my friends list and email.

    • Amy

      Me too. Only a button to join by facebook. I don’t want to give them all of my “friends'” information.

  • Leslie

    Tried it last night. There’s one for Gillian and OMally sleepware. I bought the nightgown on the cover of this weeks circular. Full price 16.99. Sale was 2.99 off, 14.00 and then with cartwheel it came to 9.80 with 30% off.

    I wanted to mention that I price matched an item to Amazon yesterday in Target. There was also a Cartwheel offer for the same item. I asked at customer service to do the price match and mentioned that there was also the Cartwheel offer. I asked about it like, I can’t use Cartwheel with a price match can I? And I was told yes! So I paid the much lower Amazon price, minus the Cartwheel discount! Wow! Just another reason to love Target ❤️❤️❤️
