Cartwheel is Target’s social coupon app. Simply download the Target app, log in, and present the coupons you want to use to the cashier when you check out. The great thing about Cartwheel is that you can use the coupons with Target and manufacturer coupons for an even better discount. Also, coupons through the app can be used up to four times. So if you buy four of discounted bottles of shampoo, money can be taken off each bottle. These are other money saving apps that can get you great deals.

Stack your coupons
