As a bit of a shopaholic, it’s no wonder that I love Target Canada. Fabulous selection, exclusive brands, great prices…what more could a woman in the mood for some serious retail therapy ask for? But while I’ve already fallen in love with the convenience of shopping at Target for everything from pet supplies to electronics, the company is still always committed to finding new ways to offer more to its customers. And the Target REDcard is a perfect example of that!
I’d heard quite a bit about the Target REDcard program, which gives holders an immediate five percent savings on their purchases. But I only recently applied for my own REDcard and I am now kicking myself for not doing it sooner! The automatic savings are so nice and the different card options make this a sensible choice for almost anyone.
So how do you get a Target REDcard? Simply visit the website and decide what kind of card is right for you. For those that prefer credit cards, the Target RBC Mastercard offers 5% off all purchases made at Target stores and 0.5% cash rewards on purchases made elsewhere. Personally, I decided I’d rather not have another credit card in my wallet and applied for the Target REDcard Debit Card instead. The money immediately comes out of my regular chequing account when I use the card while I enjoy the 5% extra savings on my purchases!
The online application was quick and easy to complete and after submitting my information, I just answered a few questions to confirm my identity and got my approval! About a week later, my card arrived in the mail. Now every time I shop at Target, I’ll be saving money! Considering my boys both need new winter coats and boots this year, the card couldn’t have arrived at a better time.
If you haven’t applied for a Target REDcard yet, now is the perfect time to do so because Target Canada has an exclusive offer available for new applicants! Apply for your REDcard before November 10, 2014, and you’ll receive a coupon good for an additional 5% savings on your next Target shopping trip. Paired with the REDcard, that’s 10% savings on your purchase! Personally, I’m going to be using those savings to stock up on Christmas presents for my family.
I was very impressed by how easy it was to apply for a Target REDcard and I loved the fact that I could choose between a debit card and a credit card when applying. Not everyone wants to have another credit card to manage and the fact that Target understands that and still gives its customers options to save money just makes my day. Take advantage of the great savings and the current special promotion and get your Target REDcard. When you see how much you save on everything from clothes to groceries to toys for the kids, you’ll be glad you did!
