But one of the reasons I love shopping there is how affordable it is. Not only are they generally cheaper than other retailers and grocery stores, but they also provide multiple ways to save which is great with the busiest shopping season of the year fastly approaching.
I check their site every week and print off coupons to save even more than I already am on top of their already low prices and weekly sales.
2. Red Card
I was reluctant to sign up for a red card until a little over a year ago. I always thought there was some kind of a catch such as an annual fee, but there are no catches. I have the debit card which is directly linked to my checking account and I save 5% on every single transaction including online orders. Plus I get free shipping on every online order. It's amazing watching my total saved for the whole year.
3. Cartwheel App
My new favorite way to save is with Target Cartwheel where you choose from hundreds of available offers for additional savings. I only started using this app a few weeks ago, and I've already saved close to $10 with it. You simply add the offers you'd like to save on to your app, and have the check out associate scan the bar code on your phone before paying.
Considering I do a lot of my Christmas shopping at Target (gifts, stocking stuffers, wrapping paper, baking supplies, etc...) it's fantastic that there are several ways for me to wrack up savings.
If you plan on doing any holiday shopping this weekend, make sure you're armed with their weekly ad, coupons, and the cartwheel app. And if you haven't gotten a red card yet, what are you waiting for?! Open one at the check out and you'll continue saving at every visit.
