Back in the day, you would have to physically make your way into Target before you could find savings. A shopper’s process would include checking tags for discounted prices, and keeping on the lookout for signs announcing deals. Thankfully, saving money is much easier nowadays! Target has developed several new opportunities for you to uncover the best deals, right in your smart phone. Keep reading to learn about these 3 super simple methods to saving on your Target necessities!


1. Use the Target app
If you’re a dedicated Target shopper, you should definitely download the free (!) Target app (available through both the iTunes App Store or Google Play for Android phones). The app allows you to make shopping lists ahead of time for all the items you need to pick up once you hit the store. This feature can help you save money since you’ll be less likely to add unnecessary items to your cart! Then, while you’re walking the aisles, you can check to see if the products you need are in stock. You can even compare prices to make sure you’re getting the very best deal on every item. The best way to save through the app is to check out the Weekly Ad to see which products have been put on sale. That way you can search specifically for the items that have been marked down!

2. Access the Cartwheel app
After you’ve downloaded the Target app, another great option is the Cartwheel app. It’s also free through the iTunes App Store or Google Play. This app lets you choose from hundreds of products that are updated regularly, so you’ll always see the very latest deals. You just click on items you want to add to your cart, and then when you hit the checkout, the cashier will scan the barcodes that show up on your phone. The best part is when you get your receipt and see how much you’ve saved! You can even stack coupons with the Cartwheel app, so one deal can be used up to 4 times! Plus, the more you use the app, the more rewards you’ll get to use in the store!

3. Head to DealsPlus
Of course, one of the best and easiest ways to get discounts through your phone is to log onto the DealsPlus site or download the DealsPlus app. There you’ll find a multitude of savings opportunities (usually more than 80 coupons to choose from), including potential discounts like $5 off a $50 purchase or sales like 25% off bedding and bath items. Make sure to scan through all of the deals so you won’t miss out on any great bargains! You can also check out the Weekly Deals Ad through the DealsPlus site, where you’re bound to find even more discounts to take advantage of!


Whether you’re shopping at your closest Target store or online at, make sure to check your smart phone to gain access to crazy savings!
