What is Target Circle and how does it work? Well it’s actually pretty easy! You start by downloading the APP (If you are not tech saavy OR prefer not to have apps on your phone, you CAN do this via Computer too!) So let’s get started!
I also have a youtube video of it below!
Why do I need Target Circle in my life?
You can earn 1% cash back for future purchases just by shopping at Target! (If you have the RedCard, you can earn 5% cashback INSTANTLY – I’ll touch more on this later down below.)
Another reason you want Target Circle, is because you get percentage offers all the time on specific items (over 600 currently!) They even have digital coupons in there too for stacked savings!
How do I use these awesome offers?
You clip the offers that you want on your smart device or computer. Then you have the option of shopping in store, in-store pick-up, Drive-up, OR same day shipping using Shipt. (Shipt is awesome and so much better than instacart in my mind, if you wanna check is out, tap here!)
What are the stipulations of Circle offers?
Each Circle offer can be used for a maximum of 4 qualifying items per transaction, unless otherwise noted. Limit 1 Circle ACCOUNT per transaction and 6 Circle transactions PER DAY. Void if copied, scanned, altered, transferred, purchased, sold, or prohibited by law. Offer expires 11:59 PM PST. Cannot be applied to previous purchases. Item(s) may not be available at all stores. Quantities limited; no rain checks. Offer value may not exceed value of item purchased. No cash value.
Basically all this mumbo jumbo is saying is, you can use 6 per day. So choose 6 that you want to go with per day. In these 6, you can get 4 of each item. So essentially you are getting 24 discounted items daily! You don’t have to use them all, just use the ones that work for your family.
Does everyone get the same Circle offers?
No. Once you start using Target Circle, they will send you offers specifically for you. These will be noted “Just for you” on them. However, the majority of the ones you see, everyone will have as well!
What if I forget to use my phone number or Circle barcode when at the store?
Unfortunately you can not claim previous purchases, BUT be sure to add your receipt in the app, as you will STILL get your 1% back!
How can I save even more?
You can save by signing up for Shipt if you prefer same day shipping. If you shop without it, it will cost you $9.99 each time. If you sign up the yearly membership is $99 AND if you sign up right now through me, you get a $10 discount making it $89 for the year!! Tap here to check it out!
You can also sign up for the Target RedCard and earn 5% cashback INSTANTLY. Keep in mind, you do NOT need to have a new credit card just to get Red Card benefits. You can have a RedCard debit card instead AND if you’re worried about linking your checking account and do not feel comfortable, you can open a separate small checking account just for this purpose.)
Anything else to know?
That’s pretty much it. It’s very easy to use. You add the offers you want. If you are in store, you scan your phone OR you can enter your phone number that’s linked to your account on the keypad. If you shop online, just make sure you are signed in and your offers are counting.
