I often find Target gift cards in my wallet. Since Target has so many great deals with gift cards I earn a few of them and then forget I have them! And since knowledge is power it’s good to know how much I have on them BEFORE I head to the store!
How To Check a Target Gift Card Balance
It’s easy enough to find the balance- Target has it on their website. Click here to check it out! You just need the codes off the back of the card to enter. Then I write them on a little sticky and attach it to the card.
Where To Buy Target Gift Cards
The most obvious answer to this question is, of course, Target or Target.com.
While I don’t generally recommend discount gift card sites there is one I like- Raise.com. You can save usually around 6% off the face value of the card.
How to Earn Target Gift Cards by Shopping
The most fun way to get Target Gift cards is to earn them while you shop. Usually every week there is atleast one deal where if you buy a certain amount of a product you earn a Target Gift Card.
The great thing is that you can use coupons on those items and/or gift cards you earned during previous transactions.
Here is a hypothetical example:
This week at Target when you buy 4 Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain bars you get a $5 Target Gift Card. There is also another deal where if you buy 2 packages of Charmin Toilet Tissue you get a $5 Target gift card. You can combine those and do two great deals.
Buy 4 Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Bars @ $2.99 a Box = $11.96
Use 4 $1/1 coupons from the Sunday Paper
Pay Out of Pocket: $1.99 each when you buy 4
Receive $5 Target Gift Card
Now you have a $5 gift card and you can use it on your next transaction to get another great deal!
Buy 2 Charmin Toilet Tissue 26 pk @ $9.99 = $19.98
Use 2 $.25/1 coupons from the Sunday Paper
Use $5 Gift Card from Previous Transaction
Pay Out of Pocket: $14.48 or $7.24 each
And you receive another $5 Gift Card!
