My latest obsession: the Target Cartwheel App {+ a giveaway}

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Johnson & Johnson and Target. I received a gift card to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

It’s no secret that I have an insane love for Target. Besides the grocery store and the school pick up line, it’s probably my most frequently visited places. You can find me there about once a week, rummaging through the cute little dollar section in the front, digging through the clearance racks for my next amazing score, or perusing the health & beauty section for the latest and greatest drugstore makeup dupes. Target has everything I love and need- including coffee. Plus, my kids love coming along too, and they actually behave in the store (quite possibly because they’ve been bribed with popcorn and Icees- whatever will get them to let me browse in peace!) On top of that, my local Target has free wi-fi! It really is the happiest place on Earth for me, and now my love has grown thanks to my latest new obsession- the Target Cartwheel App!

Have you heard of the Target Cartwheel App? If not, you’re so missing out! It’s the first-of-its-kind mobile savings app you can download on your smart phone (or tablet), and it’s been helping me save money on things I already buy at Target. Plus, it’s fun! You can search, browse, or scan items in store to find offers (I usually check the app before I leave the house so I know what to put on my shopping list, and then I scan all of my other items in the store to find more savings). Then Cartwheel by Target creates my own personalized barcode that can be scanned during checkout like a coupon. You can even use the discounts over and over again as many times as you’d like before they expire, which is awesome. Sometimes I’ll find a great deal and then come back a few days later and use it again.
Right now I’m loving Target’s Cartwheel app for our back to school shopping. I hate clipping coupons and going from store to store to find the best deal. Now, all of the promotions and sales are right at my fingertips! From cute, fashionable clothing, to supplies and backpacks, Target has everything my family needs for back to school. Plus, you know, it’s Target, so I totally don’t mind the extra shopping trips.


This week I stocked up on some of my family’s favorite brands, like AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion and LISTERINE® COOL MINT™ Floss. I love AVEENO because it keeps my dry skin hydrated for 24 hours, and LISTERINE floss is a brand I know and trust for my family’s oral health. Both of these items have deals on the Target Cartwheel app right now!
Here’s a few other health and beauty deals you can currently find on the app from 8/9 to 8/15:


Desitin, 5% off

Johnsons Baby, 5% off

Aveeno Baby, 5% off

Neutrogena Cosmetics, 10% off

Neutrogena FSC, 5% off

Listerine Floss, 10% off

Hand & Body Lotion- Neutrogena, 5% off

Hand & Body Lotion- Aveeno, 5% off

Sun- Neutrogena & Aveeno, 5% off


Here’s my personalized barcode that I scanned during checkout. It’s so easy to use Cartwheel by Target to save money.

Another thing I love about Cartwheel by Target? I can see how much money my Facebook friends have been saving with the app too, along with my own savings. It’s kind of like a fun little game to see who can save the most. It looks like my friends really love the app, judging by how much they’ve used it to save, and I’ve got some catching up to do! I’m currently in 9th place out of about 25 friends who are already using Cartwheel by Target. I’m hoping to inch my way closer to the top!
