Deal Diva: Store Loyalty Programs

Target recently announced a new loyalty program, giving shoppers 1% back on every purchase. Our Deal Diva, TCL reporter Kelli Hanson, breaks it all down.

Target Circle will launch across the country on October 6th. All you need is a target.com account. If you’re a cartwheel member you’re all set. With the new program, shoppers will earn 1% on every purchase. They can redeem that on a future Target trip. Shoppers will also get personalized offers like a birthday discount of 5% and can cast votes to help direct Target’s giving to 800 different nonprofits. Just open the app and scan the wallet barcode in the target app, use your phone number in store or log into your target.com account when shopping online.

But here’s the catch, If you’re a RedCard holder, you aren’t eligible to earn 1% when you pay with that card. RedCard holders will still get 5% off their transactions & can get in on other Target Circle perks. You can’t redeem that 1% on alcohol, dairy products, prescriptions, same day delivery purchases or gift cards.
