Target offers two ways that you can earn rewards on your everyday purchases in-store and online: Target Circle Rewards & Target RedCard™. Overall, the Target Rewards program is simple and straightforwrad program that's free to sign up for and useful for anyone who frequently shops with Target.

Benefits of Target Circle

Target's main loyalty program is called Target Circle. It is free to sign up for and earns you a handful of benefits when shopping at Target.

Benefits include:

  • 1% on purchases made in-store at Target, online at target.com, and through the Target App when not using the RedCard
  • Access to deals & offers through your account
  • A 5% off coupon annually on your birthday
  • Earn votes to help direct where Target gives in your community

It's a pretty straightforward program and an easy way to put a little bit of cash back into your pocket. Plus, you'll be able to add coupons and offers to your Target Circle account and they will trigger automatically at checkout at Target.

Target RedCard benefits

Target offers one store rewards card called the Target RedCard™. It earns 5% back when you use it to pay for purchase in-store or online with Target.

As a Target Circle member with a RedCard, you will earn 5% back instead of the 1% back. The rewards do not stack on top of one another.

If you frequently shop at Target, I highly recommend having this card as it's one of the best credit cards you can have for Target purchases. As with most store cards, you'll want to make sure to pay off your full balance every statement to avoid the interest as it will eat away at your rewards.
