Target stores: 10% off everything this weekend

Posted December 21, 2013

Target, Cary


Because of the huge credit and debit card security breach at Target stores over the last few weeks, they are offering a 10% discount to all shoppers in US stores this weekend. The discount is valid December 21 and December 22.   No coupon is required, but make sure you mention the discount to your cashier. Holly posted in the Share the Deals section that her cashier had to scan a special coupon that was at the register and that she had to ask for the discount.  It was not automatically taken off the total and the cashier did not offer it.  You should be able to use this 10% discount in addition to other coupons and digital Cartwheel and mobile Target discounts you have.

For all the information about the security breach and the details on the 10% off from the Target CEO, head to

If you did shop at Target stores between November 27 and December 15, make sure you monitor your credit and debit card purchases for any sign of fraud. Change your debit card PIN number and alert your bank if you see anything suspicious. If you are a REDcard holder and see any questionable purchases on your account, contact Target. For more details including steps that Target has taken to increase security, see the press release on

    My card was one of the 40 million but luckily it was not used. My bank said when people steal large amounts of card numbers it might take a year before they even try to use your card so don't think you're in the clear just because nothing has happened yet.

    That's for the post, I was not aware of the 10% discount. You would think Target would somehow let people know of the discount. I let family members know of the 10%. I did remind the cashier of the discount when I went.

    Thanks for the warning, rvpatel. Hopefully they were able to give you the difference at customer service.

    When I went tonight, the discount came off with no problem when the cashier scanned the coupon.

    jdouglas - the discount does not include prescriptions.

    my cashier scanned the coupon and it said it had already been applied. however when i got to the car and looked at my receipt it had not been taken off.

    jdouglas It probably does not include prescriptions. I purchased a gift card today and they did say that gift cards were excluded from the discount. The photo department however is not excluded in case anyone needs to print pictures or anything else.

    Very tempting, but I think I might bring cash for a while! I wonder if they are giving 10% off prescriptions, too?
