Target’s best sale of the year wasn’t on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
This year it falls on Sunday, Dec. 8 — that’s today — when Target gift cards will be 10% off at Target.com and in stores.
That might not sound like much of a deal at first, but it will enable you to pull off black-belt-level savings.
2 ways to save
If you stock up on Target gift cards today and then use them when you shop at the beloved retailer throughout the year, you will effectively save 10% on everything you buy at Target through the holidays and into the new year.
And if you use your 10%-off cards to buy something that’s already, say, 25% off, you will get it even cheaper: You’ll effectively pay three-fourths of the retail price — minus an additional 10%.
Of course, you can also give your discounted Target gift cards as presents. In fact, WalletHub recently ranked them as the best gift cards to give for the holidays. Plus, the recipient won’t know you bought the card on sale unless you divulge that.
The fine print
Here is everything else you need to know to take advantage of Target’s best sale of the year:
- To get the 10% discount, you must spend at least $10 on Target gift cards.
- Each household cannot buy more than $300 in Target gift cards for 10% off.
- You cannot start to redeem the gift cards that you buy on sale until Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. CT.
The fine print for this sale also says, “Quantities limited; no rainchecks.” So, don’t wait till the end of the day to take advantage of this sale.
