Anyone seriously have a good pitch other than "Are you saving 5% with a RC?"
I say "Are you saving 5% with a RC?" then if they say no "would you like to?" that way i'm pushing past the first no.Anyone seriously have a good pitch other than "Are you saving 5% with a RC?"
One of our more successful cashiers does the "You don't have a redcard? WHAT!? I see you in here all the time. How much money are you losing" etc etc She makes it super exclusive sounding and that you're lame if you don't have one.Anyone seriously have a good pitch other than "Are you saving 5% with a RC?"
Yeah, I feel like Target should give TMs something for getting red cards as well. My other retail job before Target gave its employees a dollar for every card that was opened. It wasn't the best reward ever but at least there was something to provide a little motivation.I think it's kind of stupid to put that kind of pressure on them to sell to get nothing in return
That’s good.One of our more successful cashiers does the "You don't have a redcard? WHAT!? I see you in here all the time. How much money are you losing" etc etc She makes it super exclusive sounding and that you're lame if you don't have one.
I do not believe so. However SSN is still required for fraud preventionDoes applying for the debit version affect their credit score in any way?
Perhaps they saw you were calling from a number linked to your card. That’s what my ISP does sometimes.I must say, I find the security procedures for the red card to be a little lax for comfort.
I managed to lock myself out of my account as my saved logins had the wrong password and all my usual alternate passwords didn't work. I also couldn't answer the security questions as I use nonsense answers to keep someone who really does know where I went to 6th grade from hacking my account and I lost the file with the answers when my daughter did a factory reset on my computer. I called customer support, I had to punch in the last four digits of my card during the voice prompts and nothing more. The person who picked up asked no identifying questions other than my name, didn't seem at all concerned that I couldn't answer my security questions and gave me a temporary password so I could log in and reset all my information. Literally I could have picked someone else's card off the ground and gotten access because nothing that wasn't printed on the card was asked.
That's kinda worrisome.
It's not even a real metric anymore. The goal is now simply a forecast and you can't even look up how many an individual cashier has for the year.I'm thankful that my store's leadership just. doesn't. care. Ive been at my store for 4 months and have no clue what my store's goal is.
I hate to say it but these are all excuses *some valid* and the cashier's who come up with these don't get red cards.I just have not been able to get any guests to sign up for a RedCard in what feels two or three weeks. I try to ask early in the transaction if the guest would like to sign up, but sometimes they are talking on the phone, watching their kids, or have a question about gift cards, or coupons and by the time I ask, they usually want to get out of the store as soon as possible. I wish Corporate would increase the savings from 5% to 10% as an added incentive.
either that it's super saturated or literally no one wants one.The thing about redcards is it's super difficult to sell to a guest that they need this 5% off on the >$50 purchase they are making at that moment, that and it's already super saturated with people that have redcards already.
