How to Use Coupons at Target

Ever wonder where the Bullseye came from?  In 1960, The Dayton Company wanted to introduce a “mass market discount store that caters to value oriented shoppers seeking a higher quality experience”.  The, now famous, Bullseye logo was chosen because “as a marksmen’s goal is to hit the center bullseye, the new store would do much the same in terms of retail goods, services, commitment to the community, price, value and overall experience”.

4. Additional Ways to Save

REBATE APPS

Besides coupons and digital coupons, there are also rebate apps that can save you even more.  Here are some of the apps available for Target:

Cartwheel by Target – Cartwheel is an app for your smartphone that allows you to add offers from hundreds of available products.  Either present your smartphone with the Cartwheel barcode or your printed Cartwheel at checkout.  Cartwheel deals even work when you stack them on top of coupons, sales and your REDcard discount.

Ibotta eCoupons – Ibotta is an app for your smartphone. You earn money by taking a quick poll, watch a short video or even just looking at a recipe. Each action will earn you more money once you purchase that item. Purchase the product as you normally would. Using coupons will not have any effect on your ibotta offers. If you like, you can even scan the products barcode through the Ibotta app to be sure you are purchasing the correct product. Once you have made your purchase, you simply take a photo of your receipt through the app. The amount of the coupon will be deposited into your Ibotta account.

BerryCart is a rebate app geared towards organic, healthy, GMO Free Foods. Each week a variety of foods are added.  To get the rebate you need to upload your receipt to the app and your rebate amount is added to your Berry Cart account.

Checkout51 is another rebate app.  You make a purchase of any of the products from the list of current offers, upload your receipt to the app and receive money back into your Checkout51 account.

MobiSave is currently available for Apple based devices ONLY.  Much like their predecessors, MobiSave offers you rebates on items that  you can choose to purchase.  Just take a picture of your itemized receipt and submit.   Rebates are posted to your account normally within 24 hours.  Cash out your account at any time, NO MINIMUMS to meet.  Visit the Apple ITunes Store and download MobiSave for free!

Snap By Groupon is probably my favorite rebate app.  The selections of products are great and you can purchase them at any store. Also, you can do the rebate multiple times which is a great feature for stocking up on products.

SavingStar is a great way to save big money on your groceries and pharmacy store purchases.  They are the first and only national, fully-digital grocery eCoupon rewards service. There is nothing to clip and nothing to print.  Here’s how you can use SavingStar:
