Use Target Cartwheel App

Target customers can use the Target Cartwheel app to save money every week. All you need to do is browse on the website and assign offers to a unique barcode that you can print and take to the store for savings.

Shoppers who use Cartwheel regularly save even more by unlocking “badges,” which translate to extra offers. Check Cartwheel offers often to see what's available. New offers come out on Sundays, but many limited-time, high-value offers pop up randomly throughout the week.

You can even take Cartwheel offers and use them along with other coupons, sales and your debit or credit REDcard savings.

Target Registry

If you have a big event coming up, sign up at the Target gift registry and you can earn additional savings on the items you need. You can include baby register, wedding registry, and college registry to receive 15 percent discount for you, friends and family.

Bring a Reusable Bag

You have probably seen Target customers using their own reusable bags. They save 5 cents off their purchase. Target also gives customers a 5 cent discount for each reusable bag they use.

Use Cash-Back Website

You can save at Target even before you shop at Target. Use a cash-back website before making your purchases. Ebates is a popular cash-back website that gives you an additional 2 percent cash back on your Target purchases.

Target has been my favorite store for years. Whether it's been well priced clothing for kids, gifts, granola or towels, I can shop one stop. I like the designer items they feature and their prices are good. Thanks for sharing other ways to save.
