WORST CARD EVER

1

This is the worst store card ever! I have never been so disgruntled in all my life! They disrespect their customers and do not ever have any issues with your card or account because they do not fix it the only thing they do is make your credibility worse than ever! I have had to go all the wy to the CEO and still have not gotten my issue resolved! I used to love this store but now I would never recommend anyone to ever shop there and for sure to never ever get their credit card!

Not worth the trouble

I was lured into applying after a cashier saw me buying baby formula, I fell for the 5% discount and applied. I did not get the card right away or ever but 3 months later I received a bill, with a $37 late payment fee and $59 past due and no RED card. I called costumer service and was told to pay and that they had sent the card. I ended up cancelling the card and was told that they could not waive any fee and they insisted that they sent the card. I asked for a confirmation email, and they don't do that, I was only given a confirmation number and a girl called "Delicia", but no last name. A very frustrating experience, not worth the 5% discount

One of my favorite store cards yet!

I usually use my target card to make my everyday purchases because we automatically save 5% on all purchases. On top of the sales they have along with coupons and their cartwheel app, there is just so much savings to be had. This card comes in handy during the holiday season for big ticket purchases.

I'm a Target fan, especially the RedCard

Immediate rewards in the form of discounts, and you can double the discount with their pharmacy rewards. Customer Service All of my experiences have been positive. They are very responsive. When I missed a payment (working too many hours) they called before it got expensive. Available Rates the same as the rest of them. There are many levels depending on credit ratings. The Visa rates are as bad as department stores. I just pay it off every month.

Why bother with Target's REDcard?

2

I had a REDcard for quite awhile before cancelling it totally. What first drew me to it was the initial discount REDcard gave me on my purchase just for signing up. After that, I realized I wasn't impressed with it at all. I'm one of those people who thinks "Why bother with a credit card you can only use at one store when can use one that is universally accepted at all stores?" I know a lot of people like the extra coupons and rewards their Target REDcard offers them. I wasn't impressed to the point where it was worth keeping it. I mean, if I can get bonuses in the form of cash back from my major credit card at a lower interest rate for carried balances, then that's every bit as good for me. Customer Service My disappointment in REDcard customer service stems from the reality that to this day, every time I am in Target they try to up-sell and encourage me to sign up again. I fell for it once and was let down, and even had to haggle on the phone to get them to close out my account. (They tried everything to prevent me from doing so.) Maybe I'm just not a big enough Target fan. Available Rates When I had my card, the interest rate was over 20%, later went down, and then shot back up again despite my making regular, timely payments.

Easy pissy!

The most recent recent debit card in my wallet is Target red card. We never shopped that often at Target until lately. The reason being a new dining place in the mall (that my husband loves) we visit very often and there we have Target as well. Earlier we used to buy a thing or two when we visited this mall, but lately we realized why not to get the Target red card when we are shopping here every week. The best part of the RED card is being a debit card which makes it very easy for anyone to get it, they do not run your credit before issuing you one. Target always has great deals, especially with in store and Manufacturer coupons, you can actually grab some free stuff plus you get 5% automatic discount when you use this card. If you are a frequent shopper at target then get this card else do not get it just for the sake of increasing the number of cards in your wallet. Trust me 5% saving every time, adds up Customer Service Must be great, did not encounter !

love it

The Target- REDcard is a great card to have in your wallet. I am a big fan of target both for clothing and for food items and they have great products and great deals always open to the public. The redcard is a great convenience, quick and easy and nice for the discount you get. Its easier than carrying around cash and coins and makes for a faster checkout for you, the cashier and anyone waiting behind you. It is quick and easy to apply for and I believe if you have regular to good credit there should be no problem being accepted. Its a great benefit to my family and I, we love it! Customer Service Customer service I have not had to contact as of yet, since I have had no problems or complications yet. We have had the card for awhile and there has never been any issues for us to contact customer service for assistance. Available Rates The available rates are reasonable and I am sure depend on your credit levels and rates.

Great Debit Card

5

The Target Red debit card is a great card if you shop at Target often. Because it is a debt card they don't run your credit before issuing it to you which keeps you from getting a ding on your credit score. When you use it you get 5% off your purchase automatically and you get free shipping online with no minimum purchase. What I love about this debit card is that it connects directly to your checking account so you don't have another credit card statement that you have to worry about paying off. This card will be a hassle and just another card in your wallet if you never shop there however, if you shop there often the additional 5% adds up with major and every day purchases. Customer Service Even with the recent data breaches I've still found customer service to be far better at Target than at Walmart so it is worth it for me to shop there and thus have this card. Available Rates Because this is a debit card you don't have to worry about interest rates and the money is directly taken from your checking account.

Excellent card with adequate discount

5

I'm the kind of person who prefers to use debit whenever I can so I don't overspend. The great thing about this card is that it works like debit (I have the debit one, not the credit one), but you get a 5% discount on your Target purchase. The money comes right out of your bank account just like a debit card would do. While 5% doesn't seem like much, you're basically getting tax taken off. With larger purchases, this is definitely noticeable. Pair it with coupons and Cartwheel, and you can get some great deals. A great perk is that shipping is always free for you online, no matter the purchase amount. I find myself shopping online at Target simply because I know I'll get free shipping. Signing up is incredibly easy, as you only need a blank check, and it doesn't have a hard credit inquiry (when you do the debit variety, not the credit one). There are honestly no downsides I can think of, and I believe every Target shopper should get a REDCard from Target.

Nice If You Are Target Shopper

5

Target is a great place to shop. It is a bit more expensive than other lower class department stores, but the environment and employees are so much more sophisticated. I am not an extremely frequent Target shopper but I have gotten the Target credit card which saves us a percentage every time I shop there. The five percent adds up after a while on merchandise but I see it as covering for the sales tax. Target is such a clean and family-friendly environment and it is worth saving that small percentage for a pleasant shopping experience. I have had the red card for about three years now and have never had an issue with it. The card is very easy to find in my wallet or purse among all of my other cards. The rewards program is convenient too as I can save airline miles. After a while of shopping, I am pleasantly surprised with the savings and rewards I accumulate with my red card.
