military & veteran guest benefits
In honor of Veterans Day (November 11), between November 1 and 11, 2020, Target offered all U.S. active-duty military personnel, veterans and their families a 10 percent discount off the guest’s full basket, some exclusions apply.
In addition, guests can:
- Add veteran/dependent status as part of their permanent guest profile all year long (visit Target.com/Circle/Military to get verified)
- Be eligible for future offers for verified military guests
- Vote to direct Target’s community giving funds to 29 local military organizations and Marine Toys for Tots through the end of 2020
This offer, now in its fourth year, is one example of Target’s longstanding commitment to demonstrating our gratitude to members of the military, veterans and their families.
As a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, Target has joined other top companies in a pledge to hire more U.S. military veterans. Together, we’ve already hired nearly 300,000 veterans, inspiring the coalition to raise its goal to hire 1 million U.S. military veterans by 2020. Our team member benefits for activated reservists include pay differential and optional medical coverage for dependents. Through our Human Resources team, we provide proactive Leave of Absence (LOA) guidance and support to ensure smooth employment status transitions for military team members pursuing a LOA.
