The Target REDcard offers 5% off all Target purchases both online and in-store (Target gift cards excluded, in-store Starbucks included) and free 2-day shipping on qualifying items at You also get an additional 30 days for returns and exchanges. No annual fee.

We’ve become regular users of the Target app and their Drive-Up option. No markups, well-organized, dedicated parking area, and minimal waiting. The online stock available is mostly accurate, better than Walmart in our experience. If only Costco had a similar service!

From 4/30/23 – 5/27/23, newly approved REDcard applicants can receive a $40 off $40+ coupon (valid in-store or online) along with their new card in the mail. There are a bunch of restrictions (see below), but I can easily spend $40 on snacks and other household goods. This $40 off coupon has been a limited-time offer each May for the last few years.

Debit card version. A lesser-known fact is that you can get it as a debit card such that it withdraws money directly from your linked bank account, and applying for it won’t harm your credit score (nor hinder your ability to apply to other, more lucrative credit cards). Instead of a credit check at one of the 3 major bureaus, a reader reports that Target uses SageStream (formerly ID Analytics) for debit cards, another consumer reporting agency.

By the way, if you don’t want to use a REDCard, Target Circle offers 1% cash back on top of your usual credit card rewards.

You can earn 1% to redeem at Target later when you use non-RedCard payment types on eligible purchases. (To earn 1%, a RedCard can’t be used for any portion of the purchase.) Just scan Wallet in the Target app or enter your mobile number in store, or make a purchase online. Restrictions apply.

Here’s the full list of restrictions on that $40 off $40 coupon.

  1. No Target near us. However, I think we have a better deal at our Fred Meyer, which is part of Kroger. No extra charge for pickup, 1% back in form of credit mailed out quarterly, fuel points, and 5.25% back on B of A cash back card. When ordering for pickup, the charge goes through as an online purchase, a 3% category, and we get 75% bonus. In store only get 3.5% (2% plus 75% bonus). So, it is better for us to order online and pickup. Never had a problem with an order and they are quick delivering to you car.
