Are you an expert when it comes to using the Cartwheel app, or saving money at Target? Enter contest by May 18 to win a $25 gift card!

@GeekySweetie

Emily Helwig The Cartwheel app not only lets you save money, but also helps you quickly navigate to sale items with in store maps showing featured coupons and discounts from the "My List" feature where users can save coupons or deals they're interested in. And it even uses geolocation within the store to help recommend new deals and discounts based on your most frequented aisles and sections. So if you run the Cartwheel app every time you're in Target, it eventually learns your behavior and can recommend items of interest more quickly. For example, if you frequent the electronics section or cosmetics section, the app will learn this, and begin showing you special offers for the types of products you most frequently shop for.

Emily Helwig My absolutely favorite Ulta Beauty Tip is to sign up for their birthday club. Which you can do here https://www.ulta.com/ulta/myaccount/learnmore_template.jsp?page=benefits. Once you're signed up you'll get an absolutely free cosmetic item on your birthday each year. And if you're a platinum member, you'll get two free items. Can't beat free!!! Plus for the entire month of your birthday, you earn 2X reward points for all purchases made in your birthday month. You can use reward points to redeem for even MORE free items!! :) And throughout the rest of the year, you still earn reward points for qualifying purchases, and it is free to join their rewards program. :)

Emily Helwig I don't live that close to a Target, though I hear I may be getting one in my town soon. Sears just went out at our mall last month and the rumor is Target is wanting to go in there :). -- I think the best Target deal I ever got was a $20 gift card that only cost $10, via a Groupon lol. I'm not really an "extreme" couponer or anything too crazy. I do love Target though. I like their fashion collections with name brand designers. I have this little black lace off the shoulder dress that I bought like 4 years ago and it has held up through the wash and still looks great. Really high quality, and at an affordable price! It's actually my favorite dress. I think it's a Vera Wang, but can't recall.
