Q: Why do I have to pay $5 for this gift card if is a Promotional one for me buy certain products?

submitted by Kelly - 5 years ago
  • A: I'm sure everyone here has clicked on the email promo card and end up here. What is actually happening is your opening a page where you may purchase the item clicked on- $5 gift card. What target actually did was sent a separate email specifically for the gift card. And when opened it has a barcode that you can redeem at store. Hope this helps.

  • A: Happened to me too. Chat service rep gave illogical reasons. Received $5 gift card for preordering something and they charged my account $5 to receive it. I said it was a “wash” and she said the items were reduced $5. No, they were already on sale.

  • A: I too thought this was a scam and contacted Target about it. ANNNND basically made a fool of myself. My items totaled up to $78.11 and the charges on my card (including the $5 charge) added up to $78.11 as well. It's not a scam and the total amount is legit.

  • A: Same for me. Target sends emails that I earned a e gift card but you turn around and charge my company card on top of my purchases. My recent purchase was for work and now I have to show documentation as you charged my company card for the "earned gift card".

  • A: Maybe I'm wrong, but I think what they do is apply the promotional gift card to the current purchase, charge you for the gift card, and then you still have the gift card available for your next purchase. I wonder what genius came up with this plan. Surely a great way to confuse and alienate customers. It's even more unforgiveable that customer service reps are unable to explain what's going on.

  • A: You actually do get the $5 or whatever amount of gift cards. Say if you buy $50 worth of items and it qualifies you to receive two $5 gift cards. When you see your credit card charge, Target only charged you $40 plus the taxes. But when they credit you your gift cards of $5 each, they will charge you the remainder of the $10 ($5 twice). Just remember your purchases added up to $50. It's just that you were charged $40 only and a few days later they charged you $5 twice ($10) for the remainder of what you owed. Your two $5 gift cards will be applied to your account to use. An odd way of doing it but you do get them.

  • A: I think the only way around this is to buy for these promotions in the store only. I'm not falling for this again online. And I'm only online ordering the quantity I need, no more additional quantities to get the promotional gift card....for which they charge.

  • A: I ran into this and had to read multiple times to make sense of it. The items do indeed get reduced by $5 on the original invoice and then they charge you $5 for the gift card. I bet some accountant came up with this for tax/finance purposes.

  • A: Target wants to make money off all of us who think we are getting a gift card. Don’t fall for their scam

    submitted byKathy - 5 years ago
  • A: The reason they do this (my theory) is that so people cannot buy the requisite items, get the free gift card, and then return the items for full price thereby getting the "free" gift card for nothing!! C'mon don't tell me people would not OBVIOUSLY do this!!!

    submitted byTargetAddict - 3 years ago
  • A: Steve's answer is correct. If you do not buy the card, you pay full price for the items. If you buy the card, you get $5.00 off, and then pay $5.00 for the card. That first transaction is a wash, but then you have a $5 gift card for a future purchase. They are counting on people not using that gift card and then they are ahead.

  • A: Have had $5 charge added to my acct and didn’t understand why. Guess I’m paying for the $5 reward???

    submitted byGeorge - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes, they just charged me 20.00 & 5.00, for their offered gift cards. It's a scam. Just buy what you wanted too. I don't think the items are reduced. It's sneaky.

    submitted byBrenda - 4 years ago
  • A: My husband figured it out. We really are getting a free $5 amount to spend at Target in the future, but it's confusing. The policy states,"Your account will be charged the amount of the qualifying item reduced by a Target discount in an amount equal to the amount of the gift card, and a separate charge for the amount of the gift card will be assessed." For example, say you spend $25 to qualify for the order. Target reduces the amount by $5, so $25 - $5 = $20 total. Target then charges you $5 for the gift card and charges you $20 for the purchase. The original cost of your purchase was $25 total, and you paid $25 total in two separate payments of $20 and $5, but you now have a $5 gift card to spend on a future purchase that you did not have before. So we are getting an additional value of $5 for future purchases. It's a brain twister.

Q: Has anyone else considered cutting up their Red card and shopping elsewhere? Unethical practices...

submitted by lmb210 - 4 years ago
  • A: if they are trying to rip me off definitely

    submitted byMecutiepie2 - 4 years ago
  • A: Just lost another customer.

    submitted bycstric - 1 year ago
  • A: No. I do like Target and is very convenient for my shopping. But I'm not ordering additional quantities anymore to meet the promotion quantities. Only ordering what I need. Will save me money by ordering less items and not being charged for a promotional gift card.

    submitted byCatlady - 4 years ago
  • A: EXACTLY (mzzzmilam)!! I just stock up on the items I normally use anyways and get as many gift cards as possible. I have saved sooooo much $$$$ on Target purchases this way.

    submitted byTargetAddict - 3 years ago
  • A: I think they do it like that because people used to buy the product, get the gift card, then return the product!
