Target Red Card…My Worst Decision

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.

  1. Hahaha. This is a funny post and sounds just like me. I tend to go for a quick item and come out with clothes for myself. But you know what, I can’t beat the prices and quality. Love Target.

  2. I can’t do this haha They offer it to me every single time I’m in that store, and it takes everything in me to say no. I love it, but I know I would be in deeeeep trouble if I furthered my Target habits by getting a Red Card!

  3. Omg! Target is the devil! Not really, but, yes it is! Lol. I used to work at a student loan company. In the same shopping center as Target. I could walk there on my lunch hour. NOOOO. My paycheck a were gone in no time! I’m now at another job and live in a different state from my job. I don’t stop there much anymore due to the already long drive I have home! Lol.

  4. I have never heard of Target RedCard but I am not a b bit Target shopper so I can see why I haven’t. I do believe it could be useful if your trying to saving with already discounted products

  5. That’s to bad! I honestly don’t shop at Target much. My nearest one is about 45 minutes away, otherwise I would go there more often. I love Target!

  6. Love this very funny, but true for so many of us moms. I can’t remember the last time I left the store with my kid and didn’t get extras.

  7. I do not have a Target a red card but I do shop there multiple times per week. Your reasoning is exactly why I do not want one..too tempting.

  8. I would love to get that extra 5% off, but unfortunately, there aren’t any Target stores in my immediate viscinity.
