Target is currently offering a coupon good for $50 off of $50 or more when you open a new Target RedCard by 5/4/24.

It probably isn’t worth doing this deal for the credit card, but it could be a nice deal if you’re opening the debit card since that card has no fee or hard pull — making this a free and easy $50+ win for Target shoppers.

Quick Thoughts

There are a bunch of exclusions above, but most regular Target shoppers will still find $50 off of $50 to be an easy bonus. You’ll then be eligible for future coupons again 6 months after you last opened it (requiring closing and re-opening the card). This deal used to be churnable every ninety days, but Target clamped down. Now, dp’s indicate that you must wait 6 months from closing a debit RedCard before Target will approve you for a new one.

Target is also requiring that the coupon be uploaded to the Target app and the recipient be fully enrolled in Target Circle. Previously, the coupon worked both online and in-store, meaning that you could get $100 worth of stuff for free from one coupon. Since this will be uploaded to an online Target Circle account now, you have to scan it in store in order to use, spelling the end of the online/in-store double dip.

I generally prefer to focus on larger bank account bonuses, but this is nonetheless an easy win and the deal is better still if you shop at Target regularly since the debit card gives you 5% off both in-store and online. There isn’t any benefit in opening the credit card over the debit card (and in fact that would be a pretty poor deal given so many credit cards on the market with offers that are much better than a $50 coupon).

Can the debit card be closed online or need to call?

Matt

Opened a debit card and just got the card, but I didn’t see any $50 coupon. Does the $50 coupon comes in another mail?? Thanks.

Jules

It came in the mail with the card for me.

I did everything Target required. I opened a card – added cash, spent $50 in one transaction. Then – they included a $2.50 bonus – which lowered my amount spent under $50 so I never got the $50 refund. This is sad — no where does anything say one will get a discount.

Rochelle

I never got the 50 either

“You’ll then be eligible for future coupons again 90 days after you last opened it (requiring closing and re-opening the card).”

DoC notes that this has ended.

Ryan

Remember when you could load RedCard with credit cards? 😀

Oh yeah, those were the days! I had recently gotten a second one, drove an hour from home for a store that was carrying it, when they pulled the plug .
