Back for 2017. Target will offer 10% off Target Gift Cards on Sunday, December 3rd, 2017 only. You are limited to $300 face value of Target gift cards in physical stores and also another $300 face value online. Basically, you’d save $30 if you buy $300 in gift cards. Additional details:

  • Limit one transaction up to $300 in Target GiftCards on Quantities are limited.
  • Target GiftCards purchased on Sunday, December 3rd may be not be redeemed until Monday, December 4th at 10am Central.

In case you were wondering:

Offer does not include Target Visa Gift Cards, Target MasterCard Gift Cards, Target American Express Gift Cards and gift cards issued by other retailers. Offer excludes reloads of previously purchased Target GiftCards, Target GiftCards given in exchange for electronic or prepaid trade-ins, Target GiftCards provided for merchandise returns, Merchandise Return Cards and Target GiftCards provided as free promotional card with qualifying purchase.

Discover it card has Target as a 5% cashback category for Q4 2017. Although it probably won’t work, you could also try to stack REDcard 5% and cashback portal savings online. (REDcard is supposed to exclude gift cards, and most cashback portals say that gift cards won’t count, but you could still try the discounts with nothing to lose. Some people report success.) Many offer new customers bonuses, including eBates ($10 bonus), TopCashBack (bonus varies, but often has best rates), and BeFrugal ($10 bonus). I have cashed out of all of these before.

  1. I’m guessing you can’t use your Target card to buy these and get 5% off, so this is effectively only 5% off at Target for Target cardholders, right?

  2. Depends on how you look at it. REDCard 5% does not apply to gift cards. So if you wanted to buy gift cards as actual gifts, then this is 10% off which you wouldn’t be able to get any discount from REDCard otherwise.

    If you wanted to buy gift cards to buy your own shopping in-store, then yes this 10% will not stack with the 5% Redcard discount. People have gotten the 5% REDCard to stack online in the past (pay partially – but not all – with gift cards and also get 5% off your total), but I haven’t tested this recently.

    • Just to follow up on this – I recently used one of my gift cards to make a purchase on the website. I used my account which had my REDCard info loaded, so it showed the 5% discount. When I said I wanted to use a gift card and entered that info, even though there was enough funds on the gift card for the full purchase, it still kept the 5% discount! Went in through eBates, so saved another 1% there.

      So this was a pretty good deal, particularly for online (and you can always do “pickup in store” or “ship to store” and get the same deal). Thanks again, Jonathan.

  3. Thanks – I bought $160 worth for gifts and it only cost me $144 πŸ™‚ Stupid me though, I forgot to buy one for myself, oops!

  4. Don’t forget about Discover 5% back at Target this quarter…

  5. A few days late, but I wanted to thank you Jonathan for posting this again this year. We’ve been doing a good bit of our grocery shopping at Target this quarter anyway because of the 5% Discover cashback and also because of our normal grocery card, AMEX Bluecash, nearing the annual limit at the end of the year. We bought a bunch of gift cards along with our groceries, received the 10% discount on the cards, and are crossing our fingers that we get the 5% cashback from Discover on the total including cards.
