How to Save BIG at Target

One of my favorite ways to save money is by shopping at Target. You can save BIG with these tips.
  1. The first thing you want to do is sign up for a Target REDcard to save 5% off all purchase made at Target or Go Here to apply if you haven't already. You can apply for a credit card or do what I did and just connect your Debit card. REDcard holders get FREE shipping on all orders at too!
  2. Second thing you want to do is download the Target Cartwheel app. You can browse and download additional offers and discounts on hundreds of items. You can add up to 50 offers at a time. Each Cartwheel offer may be used for up to a maximum of four qualifying items per offer per transaction, unless otherwise noted. There is also a limit of one Cartwheel barcode per transaction and six Cartwheel barcode scans per day.
  3. Send for Target Mobile coupons by texting COUPONS, OFFERS, BABY,  to Target or 827438. Once these coupons are delivered to your phone you can use them once.

Now that you are all set to start saving keep these things in mind:

Target will allow one manufacturer coupon (paper or Cartwheel digital), one Target coupon (paper or digital), and one Cartwheel offer combined per item (unless otherwise noted on coupon). What does this mean? Target accepts double coupon stacks! You can check out Target's Coupon Policy for more information.

Target coupons are found in the form of:

  • Target Cartwheel offers
  • Target Mobile coupons
  • Target Newspaper coupons
  • Target Printable coupons
You can combine any one of Target's coupons listed above to a manufacturer coupon to double your savings! Target accepts both printable and newspaper clipped manufacturer coupons.

Price Matching - Target will honor price matching from local competitors,, and with current proof. Just bring the item and the sales ad or show the competitors website to the Guest Service Desk and they will adjust the price for you there.
If you have a manufacturer coupon for the price matched item, Target will accept that coupon with your purchase. However, you cannot combine any Target coupons with price matching.

Gift Card Offers - I love this about Target! They have certain items on sale in their weekly advertising. Such as buy two items, receive a $5 Target gift card. These types of sales vary and coupons can be used when purchasing such items.

*Target sales run from Sunday to Saturday.
