After talking with Target Corporate, they have no plans to change their CartWheel app for those that cannot afford iPhones.
I have no plans to shop there ever again.

Target has a Cartwheel App that if you do not own an a smartphone, you will not get the discount! Case in point, I bought over $100 of scarves and gloves for the Polar Vortex coming.
Went to pay and I could not get 25% discount because I did not have the app on my phone. They said it was the only way to get the discount. I got to thinking about those that don't own a smartphone just a regular phone, the elderly and homeless. Why are they punished because they don't have a phone to support an app for a major discount?
If Target is all about equality, then why are they discriminating? I spoke to the manager twice, who was was rude, condescending and stated Ma'm it's just a coupon. I said 25% off is not a coupon! I called corporate, they did not call me back.
Second call, they listened and stated it is what it is!
I'm going to see if I can get the media involved. This is a sad company that is taking advantage of those less fortunate because they don't have a Smartphone!
This reviewer shared experience about "discrimination " and wants this business to "have a barcode at the register that can be scanned for those who do not have a smartphone with the cartwheel app on it, so that everyone can get the discount!". The author is overall dissatisfied with Target. The most disappointing about target 25 percent off coupon from Target was managers and discrimination Reviewer wants customer support to reach out to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.
