It’s a rare chance to save on gift cards, which year after year are among the most popular and requested gifts. Last December, Target had a one-day gift card sale with 10% off store gift cards both in-store and online.

The gift cards also are a way to save on other purchases and can be quickly added to the Target app to redeem at checkout and used with the Target Circle loyalty program, which launched nationwide in October 2019.
With the free program, members earn 1% on nearly every purchase to redeem on a future Target trip and take advantage of other discounts including a birthday discount.
Shoppers with a Target RedCard credit or debit card aren’t eligible to earn 1% with the loyalty program when they pay with a store-branded card but will continue to get 5% off store purchases including select gift cards year round. However, store gift cards are excluded from the cardholder perk.
RedCard holders can earn 1% on purchases through Target Circle when they pay with store gift cards.
