Target is currently offering a coupon good for $40 off of $40 or more when you open a new Target RedCard until 8/27/22. It 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 $40+ win for Target shoppers.

 

The Deal

  • Target is offering $40-80 off a purchase of $50 or more when you open a new Target REDcard between 8/7/22 and 8/27/22. Note that this applies to both the debit or credit card, but we only recommend doing the debit card deal.

Quick Thoughts

There are a bunch of exclusions above, but most regular Target shoppers will still find $40 off of $40 to be an easy bonus. While the win isn’t huge, it’s churnable and the $40 off $40 coupon works both online and in-store, meaning that you can get $80 worth of stuff for free.  You’ll then be eligible future coupons again 90 days after you last opened it (requiring closing and re-opening the card).

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 $40 coupon).
