Free Promotional Target GiftCards are sent when the qualifying purchase item ships or is picked up. Target orders including a free promotional Target GiftCard for qualifying items are now automatically saved to your Target.com account. While the promotional gift card should automatically load to your Target.com account, we'll also send you the GiftCard number and access code by email as a backup.

Promotional items won’t ship until after the qualifying purchase ships. Promotional items for qualifying Order Pickup or Drive Up purchases will ship 5-7 days after the qualifying purchase is picked up. 

If the qualifying purchase item was canceled for any reason, the promotional item will also be canceled. Keep in mind, if we’re unable to fulfill the order due to the popularity of the promotion it’s possible that the item may be canceled.

If your Target Circle earnings aren't accruing, review these troubleshooting steps:

Are you signed in?
  • Make sure you are signed in with the same account or sign in type. For example, if you have more than one Target.com account, make sure you've signed in to the correct one.
  • You can check what account type you are currently signed in with by going to Account > Profile.


Has it been more than 30 minutes since your transaction was completed?
  • Accrual of earnings can take up to 30 minutes to register in the app after a transaction is completed.

Have you checked earning exclusions for Target Circle? 

Did you use your RedCard to pay for the transaction?
  • If paying with a plastic RedCard to accrue earnings (not using Wallet in the Target app), visit target.com/circle/dashboard and ensure the RedCard you are using has been associated with your Target Circle account. Keep in mind that qualifying purchases made with a RedCard earn votes but do not earn 1% Target Circle earnings. 


Did you enter a mobile number to earn for your transaction?
  • Have you followed the SMS/text message sent to your mobile phone to complete enrollment and verification of your number? If not, please follow the link and displayed instructions to access your earnings within your Target Circle account. 
  • Is the number you are entering the same number that is tied to your Target Circle account? If not, there may be two different numbers (and therefore accounts) being used to earn Circle benefits. Visit target.com/circle/dashboard, sign in, and look for a green banner at top of Circle homepage that will appear if you already have a number tied to your Target Circle account. Follow the banner link to update the number as needed and re-enroll and verify your new mobile number.
  • Is the number you are entering able to receive SMS/text messages? If not, you’ll need to enroll with a mobile number that can accept SMS/text messages. 


If you are still having trouble completing your enrollment and validation, or if you have two Target Circle accounts (using a number not tied to their Circle account) please visit target.com/circle to complete and correct enrollment.

If items that earned Target Circle earnings rewards, inclusive of completing a Target Circle Bonus offer, are returned, the associated Target Circle earnings rewards may be removed from your Target Circle earnings rewards balance. If you have already redeemed Target Circle earnings rewards on the returned items, Target reserves the right to take your Target Circle earnings rewards to a negative balance (i.e. a balance of less than zero in your Target Circle account). In such event you will not have redeemable Target Circle earnings rewards until the balance is greater than zero.
