Target Cartwheel Deals September 22nd - 28th: R.I.P. Cartwheel


#1 Zantra  

Posted 22 September 2019 - 07:22 AM

Target's whole ad this week is filled with Cartwheel Deals across the entire store, because this is the final week of Cartwheel. It's being replaced in October by Circle. Which is Target's new customer rewards program. Signing up for Circle will get you 1% back on all purchases in store and online, unless you are a Red Card member, where you will still get the 5% off as usual. Circle will have it's own set of specialized coupons each week, based on what you buy. So, I don't know if I will continue this thread with a new name, as some coupons may not work for everybody. It's still unclear how everything is going to work. I've been doing this thread since Cartwheel started, so it feels kind of weird knowing that I will probably get to go to bed early on Saturdays from now on, instead of staying up past midnight to make this thread.

Well, I know that people hate it when I talk, so here is the only deal that I could find related to video games:

10% Off TVs Excluding Samsung and LG OLED (Expires September 28th)

There will be some special one day Cartwheels throughout the week, so I will be keeping an eye on the app to see if any game deals pop up before Cartwheel goes extinct.

Thanks for maintaining this thread.  I only recently started using Cartwheel, but I have found it helpful on occasion, so I appreciate you taking the time to do it.  And I hope you can get some more rest now because if you're anything like me, you probably need it.  :oldman:

This new program will probably eliminate the loophole of being able to stack price match and cartwheel in the POS. It was a nice run. Thanks for posting.

Yeah. I see a lot less decent sales in the future, unfortunately. Cartwheel and Clearance were the two things really bringing me into Target stores. I have heard rumors that the Black Friday deals might be pretty great this year. Since Thanksgiving falls right at the end of November. Meaning less shopping days before Christmas.

Thank you OP for all your hard work. But NO THANK YOU to Target for ending this last run not with a bang, but a whimper.

The first cartwheel deal was the best. Wasn't it something like 20% off an in store purchase? I bought an iPad with that promo

Appreciate your time and effort on this thread!  Hopefully we'll still be able to catch a deal or two after whatever changes they make to this program.

Starting out the deals were pretty crazy. Some Cartwheels even went up to 90% off at the beginning. Now, it's rare to see anything over 50% off.

I only used this thread a few times because I HAAAAAATE Target (used to work there, 'nuff said), but I really want to thank you for all the hard work and time you put into this. It was amazing!

Thanks OP for the cartwheel threads. I used cartwheel for other stuff like food and household items. Will also miss the percentage off of consoles and games.

Lego Dimensions fun packs was the best cartwheel deal I got at Target.  I can't remember any other notable video game cartwheel deals that I got.

Tomb Raider & Gears (bonus 4 Gears Games) for a buck were pretty good deals.

Welp, there goes my streak of price match plus cartwheel discount on top of 5% for redcard. Got a few consoles for a really good deal, but could never find a deal for the Xbox One X using this loophole. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

Thank you for the work you put into this thread. Sadly it's been quite a while since I used a Cartwheel deal for games.

This weeks ad is full of good Cartwheel deals. Just not many game ones, unfortunately.

Last Target near me completed their remodel and walking around there today, it is now the same as the others - super small selection of blurays, dvds, and video games. It's a stark reminder (and preview) of the all (or mostly) digital future that is probably 3-5 years away.

 

At this point, I think Best Buy and Walmart are the last places that even have much of  movies and games section. Otherwise, it's clear most inventory is now being moved to online stores.

 

I expect the next generation to be the last one with disc-based consoles. Frankly, I think we'll see both Xbox and PlayStation release console refreshes during the next cycle that drop the disc drives.

 

Again, not saying discs are going away entirely, but no doubt retailers have already started to redesign their floor plans with the expectation that they'll be largely an afterthought soon.

 

It's too bad. I don't see how Gamestop will be all but gone in a few years, too.

Also just got an email saying that there is a coupon in the app giving Red Card users an extra 5% off this week. So, if you combine that with some of the Cartwheel deals this week, that could lead to some great deals. There is also the buy two get one free deal on books, movies, and music.

My town only has a Target, unfortunately. And, after the remodel, our gaming aisle is just one aisle, with PlayStation and Nintendo sharing a side, and Xbox on the other side along with PC games.

This was a bad month for deals for me:  My Best Buy GCU finally expired, and now Cartwheel is gone.

Don’t forget GameStop maybe closing sooner rather than later.

Signing up for Circle will get you 1% back on all purchases in store and online

That's pretty nice considering it will stack with non-Target credit card rewards.
