Why was I charged for a free gift or free Target GiftCard?

When a free gift or free Target Giftcard is offered with a qualifying item, you will be charged the amount of the qualifying item reduced by a Target discount equal to the amount of the gift or gift card, and you will be charged a separate amount for the value of the gift or gift card.  

When purchasing online, you may see two authorizations and charges on your payment method as our system does not process the gift or gift card sale until the qualifying item is picked up or shipped. 

If you placed an order using our Order Pickup service, promotional items and gift cards will be shipped 5-7 days after the pickup transaction is completed. If you placed an order on Target.com, promotional items and gift cards won’t ship until after the qualifying purchase ships. If your qualifying purchase included a free Target GiftCard and you selected an email or mobile version, you’ll receive the gift card shortly after the pickup transaction is completed or once the item has shipped.

May not be applied to previous purchases.
