Target Cardholders Receive 5% Off Beginning this Weekend

MINNEAPOLIS - October 14, 2010
REDcard iconic VisaMINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 14, 2010) — Beginning Sunday, October 17, 2010, guests who shop with a Target REDcard will experience even greater value by receiving 5 percent off nearly all purchases made at any Target store or on everyday. This clear and simple new program extends to all Target REDcard* products, including the Target Credit Card, Target Visa Credit Card and Target Debit Card.
“This innovative, new initiative will provide Target REDcard holders with tremendous value on our exciting merchandise assortment – everything from electronics to fresh food,” said Terry Scully, president, Target Financial Services. “This program makes Target’s low prices even lower, so there’s no need for Target REDcard holders to shop around.”
The simplicity of this new program makes it easy for Target cardholders to stretch their dollar even further with savings on products from entertainment to household cleaners. They can pick up the latest fashions as well as holiday gifts and décor, and receive an additional five percent off Target’s already low prices.
In addition to receiving five percent off nearly all purchases using a REDcard, guests will receive a coupon good for 5 percent off a future day of shopping every time they fill five prescriptions at a Target pharmacy with a Target REDcard.
This new Rewards program will replace the existing Rewards program in which new account holders receive an initial 10-percent-off coupon and existing cardholders earn coupons for 10 percent off a future day of shopping. The existing program ends on October 16 at close of business.
Guests who currently don’t have a Target REDcard can apply for a Target Credit Card or Target Debit Card in any Target store.
