Target Circle loyalty Program pulled up on Macbook Screen

Target shoppers!

The new Target Circle program is now available for everyone! If you already have a Target account, have used the Cartwheel app (now Target app) or have a REDcard, you already have a Target Circle account! You can head here to login and update your information, add your birthday, and link your phone number.

Target Circle offers ALL users 1% back on your purchases when you scan your app wallet, enter your mobile number at checkout, or order online. The amount you earn can be banked to spend on later purchases as long as you earn or redeem within one year, otherwise your amount will expire.

If you’re a Target REDcard holder, you will continue to receive 5% off your purchase instead of the 1% back.

Even better, if you forgot to scan the app wallet or enter your phone number at checkout, you can still earn by adding your receipt to your account. Just head to your Circle Dashboard and under Missed Purchase click Enter Receipt – easy peasy!

Circle offers, formerly known as Cartwheel offers, will still be available in your Target app and can now be redeemed by entering your phone number or scanning your app wallet at checkout. Note that you will need to link your phone number to your Circle account for the offers to apply. Plus, Circle members receive exclusive offers throughout the year including on your birthday!

The new Target Circle program also offers you the chance to support select nonprofits by earning votes every time you make a purchase. You can then head to Target Circle and use your votes to direct where Target gives in your community! Head here to see the nonprofit organizations in your area. Note that these can change throughout the year.

    The website has crashed at the moment 🤣

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It is working for me now as I click through if you wanted to check again!

  2. Penny

    Yes, still down. Do red card holders get the 5% off and 1% back? I am hoping this is how it works! I will be one happy Target shopper!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Penny! The site is working for me now if you wanted to click back through. RedCardholders will continue to receive 5% off your purchase instead of the 1% back. Hope that helps!

      • Penny

        Thank you! I love Hip2Save, it’s the first site I check every morning!! I am a long time user and I can’t brag enough about how much I have saved and always get great ideas! ❤️❤️❤️

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Aww, How sweet! You’re so welcome, Penny! Thanks a ton for the kind words! We’re super glad you have been enjoying all of the HOT deals! 💖

      • Pat

        Do I understand this correctly? If I join this, and use my RedCard to charge my purchases, I will still get 5% off my purchase?

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Yes! “If you’re a Target REDcard holder, you will continue to receive 5% off your purchase instead of the 1% back.” Hoping that helps!

    • Katrina

      It doesn’t look like it. It’s says 1% back or continue enjoying the 5% off from the Red Card.

    • Nikki

      But you do get 1% if you use a gift card in the same purchase, so if you earn or are gifted a $35 gift card and use your redcard for the rest you would still get the 1% back on the $35. I have been with circle for a few months and have save a couple of dollars that way, birthday coupon was nice too. I haven’t checked officially but has anyone seen if you get 1% when you use coupons or rebate checks like the formula since they are a form of payment essentially?

    Worked for me about 20min ago.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! Glad to hear that, Anthony!

  4. Gina G.

    Still down for me

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Maybe try again in a different browser. I had success using Chrome on my laptop. Hoping you can get through soon!

  5. Klp

    Did anyone actually have extra offers besides the ad coupons?

    • Joanna

      I got a coupon in the mail (with an introductory letter about Circle) that was for an additional 5% (on top of the normal 5%) off an online purchase.

  6. misti

    Well I was able to add my phone number. When I added my bday it kept saying error. I skipped section and now not sure where to add it. If it even matters?

    • Courtney

      Same happened with me. I logged out and back in and they did have my birthday recorded.

  7. chester5

    I wonder how they pick the nonprofits you can “vote” for. None of the options shown are really “local” for me.

  8. Donna

    It won’t accept my phone number. Anyone else have Republic Wireless phone and if so did it accept your phone number?
    Shopkick will not accept a Republic Wireless number either (really pathetic and totally unacceptable in my opinion).

    • HBee

      I have Republic too and it won’t accept my number either:(.

      • Donna

        So you also can’t do Shopkick either. I can’t tell you how ridiculous this is. They should accept any working phone number.

    • Kristin Knutson

      Same for me – I have Republic Wireless and am unable to verify my phone number because it comes up as invalid.

  9. Jenny

    I didn’t get the 1% off and can’t add my birthday.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, Maybe check back again later to see if you may be able to add it. You can also contact them to let them know of any issues – 1-800-440-0680. Hoping they may be able to help!

      Earn 1% on non-RedCard™ purchases to redeem at Target later.
      RedCard purchases continue to save 5% instead of earning 1%.

      Your 1% earnings add up, but they’ll expire if not earned or redeemed for 1 year.
      Earn in store by entering your phone number at checkout, or have a Team Member scan your Wallet barcode in the Target app when you check out. You can also earn up to 7 days after making a purchase by entering your receipt number on Target.com/circle, or scanning the receipt barcode using the Target app. If you’re shopping on Target.com, just sign in to your account and your earnings will be added after checkout.
      To see and redeem your earnings, view your dashboard on Target.com/circle or your Wallet in the Target app.
      If you are paying with a RedCard, instead of earning 1% to redeem at Target later, you’ll continue to save 5% right away.

      Restrictions apply to the RedCard 5% discount. See program rules.
      For full terms, see Target Circle™ Terms & Conditions.

    I contacted Target and she wasn’t able to put my phone number it. It wouldn’t accept it.
    I can’t tell you how disappointed, frustrated and angry I am about this. Now if I get locked out of their app I’m not going to be able to get back in. Grrrrrr!!!
