Target: 10% Off Target Giftcards This Sunday ($300 Maximum)

Just a reminder this goes live today

The Offer

Direct link to offer (p5)

  • Target is offering 10% off  Target gift cards this coming Sunday, December 8th ($300 maximum)

The Fine Print

  • The gift cards bought on this deal can be used beginning 12/9/19 at 10am central (not for immediate use)
  • Minimum $10 Target gift card purchase required
  • Limit one transaction up to $300 on Target.com

Our Verdict

Discover has 5% back this quarter as well. This will stack nicely to pay for items using the 20% discount coupon if you have one of those. 

Should work online and in store, as in the past. Online you’re limited to one transactions; in-store there’s no stated limitation, though the store can obviously limit you if they choose.

Good Offer, sad to see $300 Max.

So $270 for $300 plus 5% with Discover means really only $266.50 for $300 which is pretty good, plus the stack with the 20% off coupon from 12/3 on.

The 20% coupon will not work on buying a Target gift card.

I just added a $300 gift card to my cart, and attempting to apply the 20% promo code, and it doesn’t work. It gives an error:
“Promo code xxxxxxxx doesn’t apply to any item in your cart”

I imagine it’s because in the exclusions list of the 20% off coupon, both “gift cards” and “prepaid cards” are mentioned meaning you cannot buy Target gift cards, Prepaid Visa, etc any type will not work:

*Excludes alcohol, Apple products, select baby products (Baby Born, DockATot, Elvie, HALO, Infant Optics, Peg Perego, Philips Avent), Bose, Casper, clinic & pharmacy, dairy milk, DSLR cameras & lenses, Elf on the Shelf, Fitbit, gift cards, Google, GoPro, Harry’s and Flamingo, HP, JBL, Levi’s Red Label, LG OLED TV, limited-time designer partnerships, mobile contracts, Motrin pain relief, Nintendo hardware and Switch games, Nintendo Labo kits, Polder, prepaid cards, PS4 hardware, Samsung TVs, simplehuman, Sonos, Target Optical, select toys (Barbie Dreamhouse, Disney Frozen Castle, Fisher-Price Bounce and Spin Puppy, Frozen Castle and Smart Home, Hot Wheels Colossal Crash, Hot Wheels id, Imaginext Batmobile, LEGO, L.O.L., Mega Bloks, Nerf Ultra, Pictionary Air, Thomas and Friends Wood), Traeger, Tylenol pain relief, Vera Bradley bedding, Weber, and Xbox One hardware.

No, I meant using the Gift Card purchased on 12/9 in conjunction with the 20% off Coupon for a future purchase. Sorry should’ve made that clearer.

Ah makes sense, just remember the 20% off is only valid 12/3 to 12/14, so there’s a 5 day window to make use that combo.

$256.50 you mean after Discover 5% off.

Only limited to $300 online, but you can visit the store and buy more.

Is this online only or is it also available in store? My first glance at the fine print notices it specifically only says target.com. I know in years past it was available via both ways.

I’ve added a note.

Looks like the deal goes live on Sunday(12/08), but one cannot use/redeem the gift cards until Monday(12/09). I am sure William Charles Chuck will be updating post.

I’ve clarified the post, thanks

Are not Target gift cards mostly available around 10% in secondary gift market place regularly?

If you want to deal with potential fraud, feel free.

I bought a $100 cinemark gift card off cardpool (IIRC) and it showed as a full balance, but Cinemark had blacklisted it. When you go to pay in checkout, it just errors out. cinemark took a few days to reach back out to me and let me know the card had been blacklisted due to a report of fraud. I dont know why they don’t just zero it out, but it took a bit of extra effort to get my money back.

Right now you can get them directly from Kroger online with Discount and gas points

How much discount?

For the last 6 months or so, that was generally true — one regularly saw Target gift cards for 12-13% off including portal cash back. However, the stock got cleaned out over Black Friday.

I’ve used Raise for GC purchases for a couple years now with zero issues. They guarantee GC’s purchased from them for a year from purchase. I always use a shopping portal when buying items from Raise, MrRebates has been giving 5% cashback for Raise purchases for awhile now.

Is it me or it used to be 20% in past years?

It’s always been 10% off for the gift cards in recent years, unless you’re referring to the 20% coupon.

20% off coupon turned out to be an exclusion-filled rip-off. Disappointed in Target. Worth remembering.

They managed to include everything anyone would care about.

It looks like those coupons that Dick’s Sporting Goods gives out. At Dicks’s I think it would just be easier to state what the coupon can be used for instead of listing the exclusions.

barbara thorp

are u able to used these same gift cards online and in stores

Chuck

They are regular Target gift cards, just they don’t activate until the next day.

It used to be possible to pay with another gift card and then they stopped it and then it was allowed again only to be stopped again, is this still the case?

Every year when this 10% off sale comes around I buy $300 worth of Target gift cards and pay with whatever credit card that has 5% off at Target for Oct Nov Dec. I do have a Target credit card that has 5% off on everything else (but does not give discount for gift cards or for in store CVS Pharmacy). So I use the $300 of discounted Target gift cards at the CVS Pharmacy for my prescriptions.

I’m assuming this is a CVS inside a Target?

Pei and drop also stack with this. So another 1.8%

Points44

can you use the target gift card to then buy a different gift card like a Disney gift card?

If you’re planning on buying a lot of cards, it might be a good idea to mix up the CC’s that you’re using and keep your receipts. A year or two ago, the heavy hitters were getting their cards drained. I’m guessing the CC# was how Target was identifying bulk purchasers. I tried doing 2 transactions at one store and the cashier wouldn’t let me get a second card — other cashiers didn’t care, so YMMV. Self-checkout is your friend. Might not be a bad idea to get some other items to mix in with the GC’s, if you’re doing multiple transactions at the same store.

Good way to knock out some CF Q4 spend w/Paypal.

Assuming you don’t have Discover. It’s easier to max out Paypal than Discover’s Q4 category.

Careful buying target gift cards. I recently had a target gift card worth $100 in my account that just disappeared out of the blue and the target customer support was pretty much useless at helping. I was also going to do this deal but now I am passing on it because what good is a gift card if it just disappears from your account?

If you are getting cards for yourself rather than for resale, consider getting a bunch of smaller denomination ones rather than one big one. This reduces your exposure to loss from theft due to either a compromised card or hacking of your account. (Remember that once you use a card online, the remaining balance remains uploaded to your account and is vulnerable to hacking.) The slight downside is that Target only lets you use 10 gift cards per order, but this is not really a major issue because you can combine cards on your account first.

Having $10 stolen is annoying. Having $300 stolen is really, really annoying.
