There are several reasons that Target is one of the top places people love to shop in the United States and Canada. The question is: how do these customers get the best possible discounts on the highest quality products with the lowest possible prices?
One of the easiest ways to save everyday at Target is through their REDcard. Available in a debit or credit card version, the Red Card offers 5% off every day on almost all purchases in the store. There are no annual fees, and debit cards come directly out of the customer checking account attached to the REDcard. That amounts to $5 off for each $100, in addition to items which are already on sale. This allows the customer to make their own sale, or deepen an already good discount.
In addition to 5% off, the Target REDcard offers free shipping for its customers. This means that just about anything ordered online at www.target.com is shipped for free, adding up to more savings.
One more benefit of using the REDcard is that these loyal customers have an extra 30 days to make returns or exchanges on REDcard purchases.
While some folks have been a little leery about using credit cards at Target since the holiday data compromise issues, these have all been fixed, and Target is now even more cautious regarding protecting its customers’ private information. In fact, Target has been quite diligent in recent months about tracking unauthorized purchases for customers.
It’s easy to save extra at target by heading to www.coupons.target.com! This part of the Target site gives access to everything from dishwasher detergent to photo finishing. And while most stores don’t give coupons for their store's brands, Target’s Archer Farms and Up & Up brands often offer extra discounts for coupons. Coupons can be used in conjunction with REDcard discounts to save even more on everyday family purchases. Simply select the coupons desired, print them, and take them into the local Target store to save big.
Five is the magic number for prescriptions at Target. Filling 5 prescriptions at the Target Pharmacy earns customers a 5% shopping pass for one day. This can be used in combination with the REDcard discounts to save a great big bundle!
Online shopping can often be easier and more convenient than shopping at a brick and mortar store. Plus, some discounts and products are available online only and not in stores. Online purchases from Target qualify for free shipping if they are over $50, even if the customer is not using a REDcard.
While taking advantage of that free shipping with online shopping, check out http://www.target.com/c/clearance/-/N-5q0ga to find the best deals available with deep discounts on items your family may need. Customers can search for great deals by specific name or by product category. Often from past seasons, or maybe just an item the stores are no longer planning to carry, some great bargains can be secured through this portion of Target’s website. And it seems that using the 5% REDcard discount on these items is still valid.
As a strong competitor to Walmart, some people may think that Target’s prices are a little higher--and they may be-- but the total value of the experience of shopping at Target may tip the scales in their favor. In addition to simply saving money, Target donates millions of dollars each year to various charities, including educational organizations and schools.
