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!
Product or Service Mentioned: Target 25 Percent Off Coupon.
Reason of review: Discrimination .
Preferred solution: 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! .
I didn't like: Managers, Discrimination.
