Dear Readers

Dear Readers,

We received an urgent call last night from our son Jordan at Camp Pendleton, that his wife Ali was admitted to the ICU with severe pneumonia. We are on the way to the airport. We will be taking care of his children ages 1 and 2, while he is with Ali in the hospital. I don't know how long we'll be gone, probably at least a week. I'll have a computer and will  update from time to time but it will be sporadic. It's doubtful that the daily email will go out. Our office manager will be here to process subscriptions.

We just got back from Northern California. My dad is in the hospital there, admitted for uncontrolled bleeding. He's getting better but is still in the hospital. I need to be both places and am kind of on overload right now.

I feel a heavy sense of responsibility to keep the website updated, but the family emergencies are serious and I know I'm not going to be on the computer much. As soon as I'm back everything will return to normal. Chat will be updated as always. Thank you for your understanding. Michele

Target Cartwheel: Use It Without A Phone

There are lots of good coupons on the Target Cartwheel app. You can choose up to ten to have in your account. There are two ways to redeem them.

1) You can show the Cartwheel bar code on your phone or tablet at checkout and the coupon will deduct. Go to the app, and click on the "Barcode" tab. A personalized barcode will appear. The cashier will scan it. Or..

2) You can print your permanent personalized Cartwheel barcode, which never changes, and scan it at checkout.  For convenience, you can glue or laminate the barcode to an index card and keep it with your coupon file.

Target Cartwheel coupons can be used with manufacturer coupons, Target Mobile coupons and Target printable coupons. If you want an offer, add it to your barcode. You can remove it later if you don't use it.

From the FAQ's: "Your barcode never changes. You can print it once, add and remove offers as you wish, and that same barcode can still be scanned to receive the latest discounts on your list. Just reference or the app to know what's on your list." (Thanks Laurie F)

"You choose the 10 offers you like the best, then, when you're done, click the box in the red ribbon on the right side that says my cartwheel. It will bring up the offers you've chosen, then click redeem in store. It will bring up your barcode, which never changes, plus a shopping list of what you've chosen. (What I did was print it out once & laminate the barcode, so I carry it with me at all times)." (Thanks Donna M)

New Target Cartwheel offers

There are 200 new Target Cartwheel coupons that you can choose from. They are on all sorts of merchandise, not just regular coupon-type products.
