            Great way to a few bucks. Target offers some great ways to save an extra buck.
            Useful app. I saved a bunch of money looking through good weekly deals to add to my profile. Highly recommend!
            Great app. When it works.. Occasionally this app will get stuck in a log in loop and never actually load. The only fix for this that I've found is to delete
            and reinstall the app. This happens every two or three months, so it's
            Friends missing. Logged on with facebook and only a few of my friends are showing. I used to have about 75 facebook friends and now only 25 please
            Works Perfectly. A target associate told me about the cartwheel app and the first time I used it I saved over 14. It works flawlessly and you can
            use it with your red card and other coupons.
            Must have for target shoppers. I have used this app for a year and have saved almost 500 already! So easy to use, if you shop at target this is literally money
            back in your pocket :)
            Love the app, fix the barcode scanner. I've been using the cartwheel app for over a it.except whatever upgrade was made to the barcode scanner, please change
            it back! I scan all my cart items using the app do I don't miss any di
            Saves me money!. I've had the app about 9 months and have saved over150! I can open it up before or during shopping search for items I'm already

            Fun!. This is a clever and fun way to utilize coupons!
            WORKS PERFECT . It's pretty cool. There is a scanner that allows U to scan any item at target and it will tell u if that item is on sale through
            cartwheel. If it's not, it will tell u which similar items are on sale.
            Obsessed. I love this app! I'm a couponer and a huge Target fan. On each item you buy you can stack a manu coupon, store coupon AND use your
            cartwheel as icing on the cake. LOVE this app.
            Great scanner update. Really like the scanner update! No more switching back and forth.
            Mixed reviews. I love this app for its great deals but I think more than 25 deals should be possible. It stopped calculating my savings and
            number of uses. That needs fixed.
            Would like to see all coupons in cartwheel. Making all coupons, the mobile, printable, and cartwheel, available to use in store in one app would be extremely convenient.
            Great savings.. Wish I was using this app sooner. It works well with Passbook. Saved extra even on clearance items. Just wish some of the deals
            were better but either way you do save a good bit. First time I used it,
            Facebook app. Love this app but would not work with iPhone 6 would not let me log in, all I had to do was delete Facebook app from phone and
            settings now it lets me log in.
            Wonderful App. Just downloaded it in the store when a kind woman in the shoe section told me all shoes were 40% through this app. Saved 20 and
            will continue to use it! Lots of categories. Some are just 5% (every bit
            A Very Accessible Coupon App. As an avid Target shopper and a blind VoiceOver user, I was overjoyed to find this app! It is completely accessible and also
            features discounts on products I buy often. I also appreciate how it breaks
            GREAT. really helps save an extra little bit. something i buy is always on there!
            Amazing App!. This is the one thing that I needed Target to do. I love this app. Yes, you need to pay attention to what you're buying however it
            tends to save you as much money possible. Plus it offers discounts co
            Great app!. Always good to save money and cartwheel has a lot of the everyday things my family uses.
            Love it. Great savings! Easy to use. Only complaint is the spelling autocorrect. But still worth 5 stars.
            Really Upset. I was upset with myself for not getting on the bandwagon sooner. I did not have to share my purchases with anyone. However, I can
            recommend to friends and family through social media, what I found on
            Helpful app. This is an app I actually use & use it frequently. I do all of my food shopping at target and I have been using this app since
            March & so far I have saved 92! I scan everything I put in my cart and i
            Fixed!. Thank you for the bug fix. The app is back to being great!
            Love it. I love this app and use it all the time. I just wish they could get the rest of their apps right.
            Thanks for the update!. Finally the app works again! Thanks for the update.
            Thanks for the fix!. Happy to have my app back just in time for Black Friday shopping!
            Major issues!. Love my cartwheel put having MAJOR problems since this week! Please fix ASAP. Bad time of year for this to be happening! Thank
            you. :(
            Love Love Love. This app is great and always getting better. Have saved a ton of money since the beginning.
            I really love this app!. This is a simple way to save even more money. I think it is fantastic that target offers this as well as the debit card and
            physical coupons as well. This app is easy to use and I almost always have s
            Love it!. I save a lot using it and I find myself excited for new offers each week!
            I love this app. I use this app all the time. Some people mentioned not being able to log in, I use my Facebook account and I always have, I have
            never had a problem logging in. I have saved 100 in a year. This app co
            Love saving!. Use it every time I go to Target. Worth the time to save a few here and there. It adds up quickly!
            Great app. Just wish more name brand items would be available.
            Great money saving app. App works great, easy to use and saves me a lot of money.
            Love Cartwheel. My thanks goes to Target for HELPING me save at their store. I love Target-it is so much nicer than Walmart. So I appreciated
            when a Target employee encouraged me to use Cartwheel! I use it every ti
            Still saving after a year. Saved over 250 so far. Some discounts are better than others, but I have saved so much more than I would have elsewhere.
            Awesome. Easy to use. Add another 5% discount with Target check card.
            Natural - 20%
            Log in problems. Finally I can sign in with Facebook. Back working
            Lost earned upgrades & login issues. The minute I upgraded the app, I lost the additional 'savings spots' that I had earned through heavy use of the app. (I think you
            start with 12 spots, but I had earned 16). So I had to start from scra
            Fix it!. The app is no longer working. I can't sign in without it shutting down. I love Target and is there oftentimes more than once a
            day. But i haven't lately because last time i was there the app wouldn't
            Can't log in, google. So I love this app. When it works. It's kicked me out a bunch in the past, but right now I can't log in with Google at all. Guess
            Target isn't interested in keeping its customer base.
            Could use some work.. The concept of this app overall is great but it doesn't always work as it should. I got logged out once and it kept giving me
            errors when I was trying to sign back in but it eventually worked. There's
            Fix the scanner!. Would give the app 5 stars because it has helped me save a lot of money over the year & a half I've had it but now it's becoming a
            hassle to use because the scanner isn't scanning. Please fix the scan
            No major issues. They only thing I don't like now is how they changed the scanner to show it at the bottom of the screen. It's kind of confusing
            Was good. Please change the scanner back. I'm a very busy lady-I don't have time for the new scanner.
            I keep getting signed out!. Getting signed out of the app repeatedly is getting really frustrating. When I get to the store I think I'm ready to go and then I
            find I'm signed out again. Also I'm having all kinds of trouble getti
            Not too pleased. Tired of the expiration dates and lack of offers. I have used this twice in the year I have had this app. Might have to uninstall.
            Would be great if.. You could add more to your cart. I don't have time to try and add stuff to my cart only to get a message you are over and do you
            want to delete something in order to add something. It would seem the m
            New feature is confusing. The new feature that lets you know of other matching items when yours doesn't have an offer is confusing. You have to pay close
            attention to see if you have an offer or if you are being shown a matchi
            Like app but needs to sync with all devices. I am not experiencing the crashes that other have experienced with the update however, I would LOVE to see the app sync with all
            my devices. I use my iPad for most day to day things (like scrolling th
            Scanner no longer works. I usually have some things in my Cartwheel before I arrive at the store, but always use the scanner in the app to make sure
            nothing else is eligible for a discount. With the most recent update though
            New features good and bad. In the newest update the scanning feature recognizes barcodes a lot faster. But now also has product suggestions that have a
            current coupon. It's unnecessary advertising. And I like the fact that my b
            Needs Better Discounts!. Most of the things I actually use on here are only discounted 5%. It's definitely better than nothing but not enough to make me
            want to shop there more.
            Stop. Please stop putting things in Cartwheel that cannot be found in stores. Please stop requiring a log in to Target wi-if in order to
            open app in store.
            Lost all my offer spots. This app asked for me to sign in and now I'm back to only 10 offer spots when I had earned over 20 offer spots and was dollars
            away from adding another. I'm disappointed.
            Unreliable!. Nothing is more frustrating when this app glitches out! Seems to be happening a lot lately.
            Bugs, begone! Please!. This app has saved me but the most recent update has made it darn near impossible to add new deals using the app. Workaround: use
   to manage your account. The barcode seems to still work
            Needs Improvement. 1. Stop changing my search words. I searched for MiO and because there were no offers it gave me (and said I searched for) Milo.
