  • If you’re not using the Target app, you’re wasting money Mar 17, 2019

    By SMnikki
    This is one of the best shopping apps out there. It provides transparency to the consumer so you get the best available prices whether you’re shopping online or in store. If you’re shopping in store, just use the app to scan everything you put in your cart. The scanned (online) price is almost always less than the price shown at the store. For those items, you can request a price adjustment at the cashier when you’re checking out. I regularly save 10-20% every time I go to target by doing this. If you don’t want to shop in store, the in-app shopping experience is great. It tells you every offer and coupon available to you, and you can select in store pickup or drive up (if your location offers it) or shipping. The wallet feature is seamlessly integrated with your target debit or credit card. [If you don't have a target debit card but you do have a bank account, sign up for the debit card. They don’t check your credit and you get an automatic 5% off every purchase.]

    I love this app. Not only do I save $$$, but it makes finding what I need easy. The only problem is that I end up spending more $$$ because Target has so much stuff that I want. I just completed my first pickup order. As if shopping at Target wasn't addictive enough. Now I can shop on my phone and not have to walk through the store to find things. This rules.

  • Please fix app ASAP! Jan 10, 2018

    I used to love this app! I even loved that you merged the cartwheel into the app. I always thought it was stupid that I needed 2 apps. I even loved that you added the wallet. As a woman who changes purses, wallets etc I have forgotten my target card before so that’s great. HOWEVER what the hell have you done to this app! Now it crashes all the time in the store. Also more importantly I CAN NO LONGER ACCESS MY LIST!!! I live by that list when I shop! You released an update & didn’t fix a thing. I was in the store today & saw the dot indicating the app was updated. So foolishly I go in thinking the app is fixed try to access the list, nothing. So I restart the phone try again, nothing. Then I try to scan an item it crashes. It’s infuriating! How did we go 2 steps forward with the app & go 20 steps back! Is this the end of the world, no! But as someone who loved that I could do my list & therefore shop more efficiently since I knew where each item was to now lose that function & have to spend 3xs more time scanning my items for cartwheel it’s extremely annoying. First world problems, yes. But somebody is getting paid to develop & maintain this app for the customers therefore it should actually work!

    This app would get 5 stars if I didn't have to change my password every single time I want to actually purchase something. That means that I have to call Customer Service Support. The number you call is WAYYY too confusing. Make "Speak with a Representative " one of the first 3 options. FINALLY! App is working perfectly. Love the "pick up in 4 hours "!

    *disclaimer I work here, this review is of my own opinion however and I will try to be as unbiased as possible* Overall, the app would be 5 stars for the following reasons: 1. You get access to TONS of deals via target circle 2. Easy access to both online and in-store inventory 3. Ease of payment access, load your red card, gift card, or pay with a credit card to get 1% back. 4. Drive ups! Overall this is one of the best store apps. However, it's bogged down by constant server/technical issues

  • Even now many features are missing....why?😑 Jan 18, 2020

    By Glitter!!! :)
    The rating is for the app only. Love this store and when they added pick-up & drive-up, I was so happy. When I saw the app was missing features that would make filling my cart fast & easy, I figured they’d fix it in time...but they haven’t. I’m taking about simple things even our grocery store has on their low-tech website. Such as a list you can build (of items you buy frequently) in a column format with a link at the bottom that says “add to cart”. Empty boxes by each item for you to check, (whether 5 or 25) then click “add to cart”...done. The list doesn’t disappear (like target’s list), it’s always there for you to return to. Now Target does have your “favorites”; however they’re big pictures you have to click on one at a time to add to cart, and no “view all” option, so you may have 5-10 pages you have to keep loading. Lastly when you finally have your cart filled, there is no link to easily switch the whole order between pick-up and drive up if you change your mind. You have to tediously go though one item at a time...yet there’s plenty of space at the top for this link! Sigh. Target please please add these simple features! Thx so much for listening ~

  • Target double sell gift card. Mar 1, 2020

    By cantlogintinder
    I got $250 Target gift card from my friend for my newborn baby's baby shower. I m not rich, I had been to avoid use it because I wanted to use it for diapers. ( Target’s grocery are much expensive than Walmart, but diapers are the same price in any big store ). I redeemed this gift card on Target mobile App on the same day I got it. So this month I still have over $180 in my account. But couple days ago, I was trying to buy diaper on on the Target mobile App as usual since I m a single mom with full time work ( I don't have time to shop inside store), but it ask me to put another payment which was first time had this situation. So I went to ” my wallet ” to check out. There was no gift card anymore. It's so wierd. So I called Target customer service, the lady answering my call said the gift card was used 2 days ago with lots of items ( I can see the last 4 digits of my gift card in the app since I always use it through my phone at home. I never carry it with me. And it was used in another state. This lady insisted that I lost my gift card and someone got it and use it in another state. So she said ” lost is lost, we couldn't do anything for you about this” It did make sense at all. I never carry the physical gift card with me, how can I lose it?

    app is pretty nice, but the curbside pickup option is becoming buried / nearly impossible to find. Ordering from the website only offers in-store pickup and a note that says "use the app to change to curbside pickup", and then it's only on one of seven screens where you can look at your order that you can actually change it. Very poor design OR (even worse) deliberate manipulation to get people to go in the store instead. I'll update this if the process gets better.

  • Recent Update = UX Nightmare Dec 29, 2017

    By Modern_iphoneographer
    Like many others, I was a long time user of the stand-alone Cartwheel app, which I considered to have a superior UX and feature set over the brand’s flagship app — this is also why, I regrettably began using this app when it replaced the stand-alone Cartwheel app several months ago. With that said, I’ve handled that this app is focused more on online than in-store shopping, I’ve dealt with the fact that it’s UX pales in comparison to the original and tasks that once took 1-2 taps now take 3-4(or more), and I even looked past several weeks of sign-in issues during the transition period. However, with the latest update, for some reason the development team decided to add sound effects to Cartwheel user actions. This would not have been a problem if the team had been conscientious enough to allow users to disable these sound effects, however after searching within the app and the phone settings I have been unable to find a quick and easy way to do this, which quite simply is bad UX. With the variety of other options available for providing feedback after a user performs an action, I see no excuse for the development team to not allow users to disable in-app sound effects.

    Bad user experience, confusing, buggy, i could program it better.....It is getting better but now frozen items for same day drive up are buggy and will let you add some but not others. An example would be adding a gallon of ice cream but unable to add same ice cream in a pint. This is costing target money. I would shop here all the time if I could get my froZen items reliably.

  1. Wallet lets you load your REDcard directly to the app so you can save even more at checkout when buying gifts for yourself or others
  2. Cartwheel brings you a comprehensive list of sales, offers and all online promotions, all in one easy-to-access place
  3. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Locate the item in store with correct aisle numbers, or find it online and have it shipped directly anywhere

I get almost everything my family needs and I just go drive up and pick up, which is awesome considering the pandemic we're in. They also provide awesome savings on this app. If you like shopping at target I say download this app!

  • Mama’s best friend Sep 7, 2019

    By my/name/is
    I have a toddler and with the drive up service I no longer have to block out an hour and a half of my day in order to make a Target run. This service is a godsend for mamas with babies that don’t like to sit still in the cart. I pick out my items on the app, check out, then a short time later (within a couple hours, if not much sooner) I get a notification saying that my order is ready for pickup. I push the “I’m on my way” button when I’m in the car and heading to the store. I park in one of the designated pickup spots, hit the “im here” button, and boom my goodies are delivered to my car in just a matter of a minute or two. All while my toddler sits in his car seat eating a snack or playing happily with a toy. The only way this could be better is if I could pick up perishable grocery items this way too. I understand the storage of items that need to be refrigerated has to be carefully planned so I get why I can’t do that. Hopefully Target figures out a way to make it happen though because that would be amazing!

  • App has shown items in stock in store that aren’t Mar 24, 2018

    By Malin3
    App most recently showed me an item was in store, showed a buy online, pick up in store option and gave me trouble when I tried to use a prepaid gift card. Spoke with two reps in customer service on the phone, store employees, and I’m still frustrated about my experience. 1st phone rep helped me place order after app didn’t work for me because of difficulty I had placing my order with a gift card. Order was confirmed, then I received an email saying the item couldn’t be picked up. That’s when I called the store and they told me they had the item. I went down to the store, they told me that my card would actually get charged in the store when the item was picked up. I guess the moral of the story is don’t expect to be able to use any gift card other than a Target one if picking up in store. They handled it awfully and put me on the phone with the second rep I spoke to. Left the store looking at the item I wanted sitting in customer service and the employee telling me the charge on the gift card would likely come off in a few days because it was just a temporary hold.

    Improvements could be made. For example, when I'm shopping for at-store pick up, the app shows my pick up location as my city name. For example, let's say I lived in Los Angeles. My pick up location says "Los Angeles". There are at least 3 Targets in my city, so I always have to go digging around to make sure that I haven't accidentally selected the wrong location. Also the app doesn't make it obvious how long I have to pick up my order. It just says that the order will be ready in 4 hours.

    Mostly ok. My only criticism is some items I have to search multiple times, with different combos of words, for things I know exist in store. Mostly this is an issue for grocery, as that is 90% of the shopping I have done on the app. I have not had an issue with personal care or toiletries items. Those are easily searchable. I think grocery searches would be benefitted by more redundancy in the search fields so a customer does not have to guess the exact word combo to find product.

    Good app. Easy to use. I always use the drive up pick-up option. Would have given 5 but occasionally some issues saying an item is in stock and going through the checkout process completely to find out later the item is unavailable leaving me with no option to pick an alternative since the order is already completed. Then you have to place a second order or, for me, by that point I'm usually too frustrated to pace a second order and I just go to a different store.

    App is not that good.. I never thought I would say this but the instacart process is much better. I know when each item has been shopoed. Also Target is a major problem with how much is not in stock. And the prices have gone way up. Some items are more expensive than Publix now. It is really not a good shopping experience. The app is very difficult to manage now. And I know I am not the only one complaining. The problem is that probably the tech experts never really shop.

    I love that I’m able to get most items while I’m shopping online but through this pandemic, I haven’t been able to get groceries with my other items. I have only been in 1 grocery store & 1 pharmacy since March 1. By not being able to get groceries when I pick up my other items, it has forced me to shop elsewhere. Furthermore, when it comes to toilet paper, disinfecting spray and wipes, let me put it in my cart & pick it up. Limiting the quantities is fine. If the product is out when your employee is picking my order, then send me a text or email asking about a substitution. If I don’t like the substitution, be able to remove that item from my order when they bring it to my vehicle. If an item is out when they’re picking, just communicate that via email or text so that I’m aware that it wasn’t available when picking. It would be nice to have the capability of choosing to pick up the next day & have the opportunity to modify my order up to a designated time. I know I don’t have to pick up my order the same day, but it would be convenient to be able to alter orders that aren’t being picked up within the same day.

    (Edited on 10/13/2020: My original complant and veiw of this app has changed. They seemed to have made this app more user friendly.) Original complaint: When placing order it's difficult to put in your card number so that it will go through first time instead it gives you a warning would like you to fix this problem maybe adding a feature where you could take a picture of the card like they do on bank and such my make things a little bit easier

    This is an okay app. The downside is that if you decide to switch delivery methods (or fail to choose the wrong one while putting your cart together), the process is time intensive. There's no option to either select all the items and switch delivery or switch delivery methods at the top of your list. Very annoying. Maybe you should work on making the app more customer friendly.

    Cumbersome. At checkout when you input your mobile number red circle sales/offer should automatically be applied. Instead app wants you to pull out phone and scan barcode during your shopping experience. At checkout there should be a prompt to ask if you want to use reward points in your wallet rather than you having to manually retrieve. Others do both so not impossible; Target just wants you to work for the reward or miss the opportunity.

  • All order ahead options are being taking away for a lot of products Oct 9, 2020

    By guestuser guest
    This app has bugs. Not just breaking down at times, it’ll also tell me something is available for pick up and then when I click to add to cart it will say “oops check ...” basically that’s it’s not available for pickup even though it lets me select it. It will tell you an item is out of stock when you’re checking if something is available at a different store or if it’s available for pickup at a list of different stores and it’s 90% not true, its there if you actually go to the store- what it means is the item is not available for pick up/drive up. Pick up and drive up are meant to help people who really need it to save time and can’t/aren’t available to run in the store, whether it’s a disability/health issue or some other personal reason. At the start of COVID there were way more things available for pickup/drive up now the list is quickly dwindling. And there’s no rhyme or reason to it. I get you wanna have stuff for the people who visit the location but surely target is a big enough corporation to figure out a way to satisfy all their guests.

    This app used to be great but with the latest update, all reviews are gone. As in, an item has 391 reviews and 4.5 stars, yet when you click to actually view the reviews, it says there are none yet. Share the item to your web browser and boom, the reviews magically reappear. The app is a complete waste of time in terms of trying to find which items to select, just to have to research everything on the website instead then go back and add to cart in the app for purchase.

  • Terrible customer service !! Oct 10, 2020

    By Eleni C5
    I recently was sent a baby shower gift of the delta white Jordan changing table which the first order that was received was damaged, so I went to the Cross Keys Sicklerville location and had a “manager” re order me another changing table same exact one and when it was received it was color “gray” and the totally wrong one. So I had to move again go back to the target location in Sicklerville and order yet another one. As of this week another one was delivered Oct 7th and today as I am trying to assemble it, the entire white wood was discolored and so yellow and dingy looking! Once again I returned to the target Sicklerville location to return my damaged order and no apology nothing just handed me another gift-card ! So for a fourth time here I am re ordering another Delta Jordan WHITE changing table! And I am BEYOND furious being my due date is only a few short weeks away and I still have no changing table not to mention the 4 times back and fourth returning to the store to take back and re order this item !! I am so disappointed in target online and they’re customer service!!!! I am a frequent target shopper and as these last couple times I dread even going back into there!!!!!!

  • Very bad store pickup experience Sep 4, 2018

    By pkdavidstorm
    When I arrived at my local Target to get my “pickup in store” order, I found out that only two of my nine items from my order were available for pickup. Turns out, the other items were being shipped to me. I was confused because I thought I specifically marked those items for pickup, even searching using the app’s filters for items only in my store. The app failed to communicate to me that the items were going to be shipped instead of picked up. So I promptly cancelled the other items in the order right in the store from the app. I even double checked they were cancelled by viewing the details of my order again the seeing a cancelled “x” symbol next to the items. Many hours later today, I get an email from Target that “my order is on the way”, and my card has been charged and the items are being shipped to me. This is really lame; I didn’t want groceries shipped to me, my apartment doesn’t even accept packages so I guess I get to wait in line in the post office in a week to pick up groceries I wanted today. Really lame experience. Turned me off from Target’s app; it’s too bad because I was excited to try out pick up, too 😕.
