Here’s the scoop…
If you frequently shop at Target, you know that Target offers apps for their shoppers to save money & earn rewards when you shop. Well, that’s all about to change…
Target Cartwheel Perks Program:
Cartwheel Perks allow Target in-store shoppers to accumulate points each time they make purchases. After reaching a threshold, users can then redeem points for items or exclusive in store coupons to take dollars off at checkout.
Perks is coming to an end, and SOON! Existing Perks users have until August 27th to earn Perks points, and must make selections of what they want to redeem by September 27th. After Sept. 27 your perks will disappear forever!
“Creating simple, convenient and fun digital tools for Target guests means listening carefully to guest feedback and regularly making adjustments based on what we hear,” Target told CNBC. “That’s why we’ve begun phasing out the pilot Cartwheel Perks program.”
Target Cartwheel App:
The Target Cartwheel App, you know that awesome app that shows you all the great discounts for items in store, that’s going away too. Sean Murphy, Target VP, says:
“We’ve heard one thing loud and clear from guests: “Keep making it easier.” That’s why we’re moving Cartwheel, our popular savings app, into the main Target app this summer. That means guests will have one place where they can map out their store trips, snag great Cartwheel deals on in-store purchases, check out Target’s store and online assortments and, of course, make online purchases.
The changes are already happening. You can now access Cartwheel deals with the Target app. And we’ll be making more improvements over the summer.”
“On top of the convenience of a one-stop-shop app, we’re already working on new ways the app can save guests time and money. The app’s store map will soon show guests their location as they shop and highlight Cartwheel deals nearby. Later we’ll add mobile payment for Target REDcard holders. So guests can eventually score all their Cartwheel deals AND get an additional 5% off everything they buy with their REDcard. All with a quick easy scan of the app at checkout,” says Sean.
