    Back to pushing loyalty?

    Is it just my store or are other stores back to pushing RedCards & Circle? We are drowning on the front lanes due to team members being out on LOA; out of control driveups & hours cut to the bare minimum so there is no one for backups. We are trying to run with one Guest Service, one advocate...

    Regarding Red Card and Employee Discount

    I'm a relatively new employee at Target and I recently applied for a red card so that I can use my employee discount. I know that the discount needs to be used for only personal purchases or gifts that i am paying the majority for. When I applied for my red card, my application was turned down...

    I'm Lost! Target Red credit card

    How long did it take for your Target red credit card to arrive? I applied for one back in September but I still haven’t heard if I got approved. I don’t know it’s delayed because I applied before my first paycheck came through.

    New RedCard Branding, design

    It’s RedCard (not REDCard) now. Looks snazzy. Hopefully our ™ cards will finally get this design (they’re still based off the old old design). I think debit has the same design as credit now? Wonder where card number will be. Back? For ™ card I envision “Team Member” where it says redcard...

    Something Unacceptable (IMO)

    Just a short time into this and I'm seeing Guests, who CLEARLY shouldn't be applying for credit cards being coercecd into "trying'. This DOES ping their credit score and are usually turned down. THAT isn't moral by any stretch but from what I've now seems it's happening. I'm in disagreement...

    Calling all Self Checkout Champions, Red Card Kings and Queens, GSA(s), GSTL(s), ETL(s) and LOD(s).

    Hi :) I am probably not the best when it comes to Red Cards. I have no problem pitching Red Cards, the hardest thing for me isn't the four E's, it's pushing past the "NO." I can push past a "No," but HOW do the BEST of you push past the "NO" the "NO thank you" "NOt interested" "NOt today" or...

    I'm Lost! Reapplying for redcard

    Long story short my dad allowed his redcard to become inactive because of a snafu when we switched to chips. He had a visa with a cli of 12k. If he reapplies would he get denied sinfe he is paying still on the old card? If accepted would his limit be the same or would he have to rebuild up to...

    The effect of Shipt on Team Members

    It looks like Red Card holders are getting 50% off of memberships to shipt. Target is now getting to use these personal shoppers who are 1099 employees to deliver items to guest. They aren't paying these drivers the cost of gas or wear and tear on their car. They don't have to pay for...

    Redcard holders getting freebies?

    Hey everyone. I had a quick question. I’m a GSTL and also a redcard (credit) holder. Today I received an email from REDcard spend and get giving me a $20 egiftcard. First I thought I was getting hacked but decided to click the link. When I put my email in on the cashstar website it’s addressed...

    RC Free Shipping now 2-Day

    With the Redcard, if the item is eligible for 2 day shipping, it's now free too (most but not all items are). Nice improvement to the free shipping perk, and a great talking point for cashiers. $35 free shipping is still just "standard" aka 3-5 days. also just really nice as amazon has a lot of...

    Stacking red card + TM discount

    I just have a quick question — when using the red card discount, cartwheel, and TM discount which order do they stack on? Example: Something is $10 and it’s 10% off on cartwheel, 10% off TM discount and 5% off redcard, which order do they stack in? I believe it goes Cartwheel, TM, Redcard? So...

    I'm Lost! Odd Situations while Cashiering

    I have a couple of more questions regarding some cases while cashiering today and I would appreciate any suggestions. 1. A guest applied for a Red Card and it was approved, and a temporary Red Card was printed. When I tried to scan the barcode on the temporary Red Card, the card reader flashed...

    Redcard Error

    My leadership is either clueless or too lazy to find a fix, so here I am. At the end of the redcard application an error pops up saying something about a connection issue and to give the guest the 5% and tell them to apply another day. Even if I void the application and try again on another...

    10% Redcard Anniversary?

    Just noticed I got an email with a coupon/barcode for 10% off for Redcard Anniversary? Does this stack with TM Discount...or anything else? I assume this isn't a scam...

    Are you saving 5 percent

    Ughhhh how many times does someone have to pressure front lanes into selling the red card before they realize that we're doing everything in our power and still get a NO like seriously???!!! We get hundreds of talks about the red card and I literally ask every customer it's an 80% luck type of...

    1 Min Huddle

    Can you guys help me get creative with keeping my 1 minute huddles productive but still not sounding scripty? These are the things I feel like I have to touch on: genuine interactions, cashier empowerment (let's not call the GSA over for $1), stepping out, greeting guests, educating them about...
