Target is now offering REDcard holders free 2-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items. Standard shipping has always been free on every order for Target REDcard holders, but now it's even faster.
This is obviously a way for Target to stay competitive with Amazon Prime and Walmart's semi-recent shipping updates. While a Target REDcard doesn't have all of the same advantages of Amazon Prime, there's one benefit that makes it stand out above every other rewards program: the Target REDcard is free.
When most people think "REDcard", they think "credit card." While it's true that the REDcard has a credit card version, oftentimes people forget that they can also sign up for a REDcard debit card. It's completely free! Seriously! All you have to do is link it to your bank account and it'll work just like your normal debit card. Aside from free 2-day shipping, you'll also get 5% off almost every single order, as well as a slew of other benefits like exclusive products, deals, and early access – including early access to Black Friday deals. Target REDcard holders also get a 10% off coupon each year. If you ever shop at Target, why wouldn't you sign up?
I'll be the first to say that I love Target. It's honestly kind of ridiculous. Bullseye's Playground is a world wonder in my eyes. I'm always shopping with Cartwheel and stacking offers with my REDcard discount. The one thing that slightly bugs me is that the REDcard debit card can take a couple of days to pull funds from my bank account, which is pretty normal for external debit cards. If you keep that in mind, you'll never have a problem.
