Discounts on fresh foods like strawberries, apples, and salads tend to be hard to come by. Produce has a shorter shelf-life and stores have highly regimented, programmed systems to buy just the right amount each time. Places like Coupons, SmartSource, and CouponNetwork hardly ever offer discounts in these areas. Aside from the weekly specials ad for your local stores, you may never see an added coupon. Fortunately, that’s all changing with Target Cartwheel.
Target Cartwheel (Beta)
Don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of it, as Target considers this new coupon platform to be in the beta stages. Target Cartwheel is a personalized savings site that offers discounts from 5 to 50 percent on things you already buy. Users have already redeemed over $470,000 in coupons. Even more, you can save on Target’s store-brand products and in-house “Archer Farms” line.
Search For Products You Love
The secret to Target Cartwheel is searching for what you already purchase. This removes the potential of finding something tangential and unnecessary for purchase. I’m a frequent purchaser of Target’s Archer Farms coffee. All I need to do is search for, “coffee.” Like magic, here’s a coupon for 5 percent off:
Browse For New Coupons
Deals are exceptionally easy to find on this platform and can quickly add up. If you’re inclined to browse for all the available deals or look at select categories, the platform offers a detailed list of areas:
Print Out Your Savings
When you’re finished finding all the deals you want, just print out the full list. Unlike competing coupon companies, the list prints out as a checklist with one barcode. This means that there’s no time wasted clipping and wasting multiple sheets of paper (for 3 coupons a page). In my first experiences using the barcode, everything worked perfectly.
