Wallet is a feature within the Target app that simplifies the checkout process in store by using a single barcode to apply Cartwheel, Target team member discounts, Target GiftCard payments, and REDcard payments, including Target Debit Card, Target Credit Card and Target Mastercard®. Wallet also allows access to coupons which can be applied with a separate scan. 

Wallet in the Target app is currently available for REDcard guests and can only be used at Target stores.

To get started, visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the Target app. You can sign into your account, or create a new account if you don’t already have one. You can find additional Help FAQs within the Target app.

Target doesn’t accept Apple, Android or Samsung Pay in-store.

Yes. Wallet requires your username and password to sign in, and you must enter your REDcard PIN upon adding a card to Wallet. Plus, a unique barcode is generated each time you access Wallet and it expires after several minutes so you can’t screenshot or print your barcode. You can refresh your screen to generate a new barcode. You can also use your mobile device settings to enable Touch ID or require a phone PIN to be entered.
