I must say, getting a Target Red card had to have been one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made.
I’m in Target every week to begin with, really who isn’t? Why shouldn’t I have one?
I try to go in for just the “things on my list” but if there’s someone out in the interwebs that is capable of that, I’d like to meet you.
If I bring my kids, especially Stella, there’s no chance of me getting out of there without any extras.
Now, I’ve been using Cartwheel for quite a while (after deleting and reinstalling because of forgotten passwords), I’m a sucker for a sale or a deal. Now with my Red Card I get an extra 5% off every time I use it.
Do you know what that means? I can buy 5% more stuff.
How is that saving me money?
When I clean out my purse it’s stuffed with Target receipts.
Whenever I need anything I head to Target because I can use my Red Card and save money.
Who am I kidding? I’m not really saving anything. I now buy a bunch of my groceries at Target, why not? Stop & Shop isn’t offering me any deals at checkout.
I even get 5¢ off for bringing my own bag (more savings).
Brilliant move Target, now I spend more time and money in your store and I’m positive there are millions more like me.
The man or woman that came up with the 5% off idea better have gotten the biggest bonus imaginable, because it is well deserved.
I’m glad I opted for the debit and not the credit, at least that way I have slow my roll and not go nuts in the underwear department.
Seriously, I’m glad I have it, not thrilled with my shopping habits.
