My mom came back to Chicago with me for a few days this week because she wanted to watch me do some stand-up. But I think it was also because she wanted to experience Chicago's polar vortex for herself. I guess she just wanted to see what all of the fuss was about.
Yesterday morning we woke up and my front door was basically frozen shut and the windchill was almost below 30 degrees so I looked at her and said "so you ready to head downtown?" For those of you who don't know, downtown Chicago is always at least ten degrees colder because of the lake effect. She shook her head no. So what do you do when it's too freezing to go anywhere at all? Well we went to Target, of course. And I introduced my mom to the one app that will change her life when it comes to future trips to Target: the Cartwheel app.
Do you Cartwheel when you shop at Target? If you don't, you should. At any given time there are more than 700 coupons being offered on Cartwheel. You can use your Iphone, Droid or tablet and simply scan barcodes on products anywhere in the store and find out if there is an offer on Cartwheel. Just last week I used the app to find discounts on a scarf I loved, a new hat and even some treats for Harlow. It's truly as simple as it sounds. And the fun part is you can earn badges to open more spots on some of your Cartwheel lists. It's like being rewarded for shopping and saving at one of my favorite stores.
There are even some multi use offers where shoppers are able to use any offer on their list as many times as they wish until the offer expires, with the following exceptions: limit of 4 items per offer, per transaction; limit of 6 Cartwheel scans per day. So, if there was an offer for 10% off 20 ounce bottles of Diet Coke, a shopper could purchase 4 bottles of Diet Coke in one transaction and the offer discount would be applied to all 4 bottles of Diet Coke. That same shopper could do this up to 6 times in one day, for a total of 24 bottles of Diet Coke. And that is a lot of Diet Coke.
Now just leave a comment below, letting me know if you've tried Cartwheel yet, for a chance to win a $1000 Target gift card!
