Loyal Target shoppers know that saving money while getting all the things is the only way to have a happy Target life.
Target knows this too and it’s why they started Cartwheel in 2013, and it’s also why they introduced Target Circle.
Target Circle is Target’s brand new store loyalty program.
Target Circle was tested in certain markets like Dallas-Ft. Worth, Charlotte, Denver, Kansas City, Phoenix and Indianapolis over the course of 18 months and the feedback from Target-addicted shoppers was so positive that they expanded the program nationwide.
Earn 1% on every Target purchase you make to redeem later.
When you make a purchase at your Target store or online, you’ll earn 1% that you can spend on a future Target run. (Note — your 1% earnings won’t be discounted at the register for that same transaction; instead you’ll need to spend it on your very next Target transaction.)
Just download the Target app and pay by scanning the Wallet barcode from inside the app.
You can also use your phone number at checkout if you don’t want to pay through the app.
To earn 1% on your online purchases, just create a profile and make sure you log in before you buy!
Target Circle is free and it’ll replace Cartwheel inside the Target app.
Target is so confident shoppers will love Target Circle that they’re rolling the beloved Cartwheel offers into the new program.
Afraid you’ll miss Cartwheel? Target is promising Target Circle offers will be similar to what’s currently available in Cartwheel.
Target Circle offers will be personalized so you get more discounts.
For example, if you’re buying a lot of diapers and wipes, you’ll start receiving Target Circle offers for more baby products.
Notorious for buying beauty products? Target will learn from your shopping habits and send you beauty offers in order to help you save more.
Target is hoping this means more savings for you since the offers will be (fingers crossed) largely for items you tend to buy.
Look for a birthday perk like 5% off your next shopping trip.
Like other store loyalty programs, Target Circle offers a birthday surprise — and rumor has it that it’s not shabby — 5% off your next purchase.
Earn “votes” to help Target decide which charities to give to.
Cast “votes” you’ve earned for participating nonprofit organizations in your area.
I’m talking around 800 local nonprofits focusing on arts, animals, education, the environment and hunger relief.
So not only will you be saving, but you’ll also get to have a voice about where Target donates money in your community.
REDcard holders still earn 5% in savings.
If you are a REDcard holder, you’ll still save 5% immediately at the register.
You can’t earn an additional 5% on top of the 1% Target Circle offers.
But you will earn 1% for future Target runs if you pay with a credit card or cash at Target. So, it’s an either/or thing.
Use Target Circle to access manufacturer coupons.
Good news! Target Circle offers manufacturer coupons just as Cartwheel did.
You can also get free manufacturer coupons on The Krazy Coupon Lady. Just download the KCL app to print or download digital coupons. We’ll tell you how to combine them with sales at Target for maximum savings every trip.
