I guess you’re never too old to learn something NEW!!!! I added the Cartwheel app to my Android phone in May 2013.
For two years I have used the app incorrectly and wasted so much shopping time. During my trips to Target I would load my cart with items and then check whether each item was on Cartwheel!
I just learned on Sunday from a Target associate the app allows you to scan the barcode of each product. After scanning, Cartwheel will automatically add to your Cartwheel if there is a discount.
Here’s my tutorial on how to properly use Cartwheel:
When you open your Cartwheel, go to the upper left hand corner. Below is the drop down menu, scroll down to Scan Product.
Simply hold your camera back about 6 inches from the bar code and once in focus it will scan automatically.
If the product is part of Cartwheel it will add the product to your Cartwheel cart. This is a fabulous time saver!!!
Also learned Target will give you .05 cents for every reuseable bag and of course we all know about the 5% savings with REDCARD!!!!!
