Once you’ve downloaded it, there are lots of cool features you can use within the app to organize your shopping lists and save on your purchases. You can create an account with your name, email address, and phone number, which will also sign you up for special deals delivered to your email inbox.

After you’ve downloaded the Target app, you can use it whenever you shop there to save money, earn cash back and get access to Target Circle-member deals. Learn everything you need to know about using the Target app in this complete guide.

The app will automatically apply discounts to the items you’re getting when you click the +Save button on each product page and add the item to your cart.

In the app, just choose your preferred method of shopping, then add Target items to your cart. Target offers same-day delivery if you want items delivered to your home.

Or, check out with the "Picking Up" option. Head to the store at the pickup time you choose. At some stores, a Target associate will bring your shopped items, including fresh grocery items, directly to your car and load them in your trunk once you’ve opened it. You can also choose to go into the store to pick up your bagged items as soon as they’re ready.
