In today’s uncertain economic times, we are all looking for ways to save a little money here and there. You can save money by shopping at Target and looking for deals and using coupons at this store. You can also look for attractive offers such as free gift cards, or find sites or applications that show you last chance deals at clearance or sale items. While the store is already reasonably priced, there are many websites and applications that offer additional savings to make shopping even more attractive to any customer. Who wouldn’t want to pay less for items that they needed to purchase anyway? By researching these options that are available, you can significantly reduce the cost of shopping, allowing you to purchase even more or simply save the extra money saved for other uses.

All Things Target is a website for those who want to enhance their shopping experience. The site includes coupons and clearance items.

* Target Cartwheel
Target Cartwheel is a great way for shoppers to save money. You won’t have to worry about the hassle of clipping coupons. Cartwheel is a smartphone application that allows you to save 5%-50% on products at Target. You check the application for the items that are Cartwheel deals, and simply print the barcode, which never expires so can be used in the future and bring it to the register to start saving. Cartwheel offers can be stacked with Target coupons for additional saving. Each Cartwheel offer can be used up to six times, and your Cartwheel barcode can be used up to four times per day. If you are a new Cartwheel user, you can add up to ten items to your barcode. This increases the more you use your barcode.
* Totally Target
Totallytarget.com is another website that allows shoppers to save money while shopping at Target. The site features in ad coupons and discount deals. It keeps the buyer informed of last chance deals, so you don’t miss out on your chance to save big. There are also links to print out coupons to be used in store, so you can save money that way as well. You can find convenient mail in rebates on the site, as well as a section that offers “cheap finds”, so you can go into the store prepared, knowing exactly what you are looking for and how much it will cost.

* Free Gift Cards
Target offers the unique aspect of buying a specified amount of a certain item and getting a free gift card at checkout which can be used for anything in the store. For example, you may see advertised on the shelf that buying 3 containers of a certain brand of baby formula will earn you a $15.00 gift card at checkout. These savings can really add up big.
There you have it. Several ways to save money while shopping at Target. A little effort, time and research will allow you to be a savvy shopper, all while putting extra cash right in your pocket. Using discounts and coupons against a sale or special deal will help you save more money, and sometimes, buying several of the same item allows you to save as well.
