This Is How to Save Money in the Beauty Section of Target

Target’s motto is “Expect More” “Pay Less” for a reason. There are many deals to take advantage of that most do not know. No beauty queen goes into a target without making a purchase, so it is important to know just exactly how to get these fantastic deals. Here are some ways to save money while walking the Beauty section.

Cartwheel App

Target and cartwheel have combined as one. Cartwheel offers many deals. By a press of a button, you can have up to 50 sales on your Cartwheel list. That’s 50 coupons and percentages off. That means you can get almost every single beauty bargain on the cartwheel app. The App comes with a virtual barcode with all your deals, which scans at the register. The best part? Use these up to 6 times per day!


Badges are apart of the Cartwheel app. Each A 14-day match backs all your beauty products is earned depending what purchases you make or how much money you spend. Badges open up more deals and coupons for more beauty products. It also makes shopping with Target more exciting!

Scanning Your Favorites

The app also comes with a scanner. Like any other typical app scanner, it allows you to scan items you're interested in. Why? Because this scanner lets you know if your desired item is for sale. Not on sale? Go ahead and impulse buy!

Price Match Guarantee

Why impulse buy? Three words: Price match guarantee. If you find your purchased item cheaper somewhere else Target will make it right and match the price. All your beauty products are backed by a 14-day match. You can see the price match guarantee items at qualifying stores here.

REDcard & Perks

Like all stores, Target offers a debit card and credit card. However, Target’s REDcard is like no other. Every time you shop with your REDcard, you get a 5% discount or more depending on the current promotion with every purchase. The return process is longer and you get free shipping on most items. 

Coupon Stacking

If you're the coupon type and always on a budget, you're going to love reading this. Stacking just got real at Target. You can stack your vendor coupon, your REDcard discount, a target coupon, your cartwheel deals, and even a rebate when offered! These coupon stacking can happen with each item in your transaction!

Social Media & Text Coupons

To keep up on more savings, the best way is to follow Target on social media. Their social media pages always let you know last minute sales and events. They have Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Pinterest, and even a blog. They also have a texting program if you're not sure where to get coupons. You must text COUPONS to 827438 to get them.

Beauty Box

Sometimes we want to try before we buy. This is possible with Target’s beauty box! Only $7, this box comes out the first of each month. This one-time buy beauty box always has something different and new to try. The beauty box usually comes with five samples and a coupon like $3 off beauty purchase of $15 or more. Keep your eye out for next month’s beauty box!

The Best Days to Shop

There are two days you need to mark on your calendar. First, Sunday’s are the best time to go because that’s when Target comes out with new deals in their papers and coupons. It would be a good idea to take advantage of that first look before other customers. Another great day is Friday. In Target’s markdown calendar, this is the cosmetics markdown day. Now that you got more savings tips than expected, go pay less!
