If you own an iPhone, iPad or Android device, then you can now roll all those Target Gift Cards into one and stop worrying about losing them or carrying them all the time. Just follow these simple steps to get started.
If you don’t already have the Target App on your phone, just text “APP” to 827438 (TARGET) to receive a download link. Message and data rates may apply. You can also go HERE to the Target website and click on your device in the left hand column to get started.
Next, sign in to your Target.com account on your phone (email and password required). Select “My GiftCards” and enter your mobile number and pin and then click on “sign in”. If you have not created a pin yet, just click on “create account”. TIP: When entering numbers throughout this process, you do not need to enter any hyphens.
Once you are signed in to GiftCards, select “Save a Card” and enter the GiftCard and Access numbers found on the back of the card. Once you are finished, select “Save”. Repeat this process until you have entered all your GiftCards. TIP: Any time you receive a Target GiftCard, you may want to enter it right away so its recorded. You can then go back and combine at any time.
Now, to combine your cards, select “My GiftCards” and pick one of your cards from the list. Next, select “Combine” and it will bring up a list of your other cards. Choose another card from the list and select “Combine”. TIP: When I followed these steps, I noticed there was a slight delay after saving and combining, so please be patient. Once its finished, a screen will come up telling you the step was successful. Repeat this process until you have finished combining all your cards. As you proceed, the screen will reflect a new total for your GiftCard balance.
That’s it! You’re all set now and no more worries. You may want to store the physical GiftCards in a safe place at home as your backup.
*NOTE: To see these instructions on the Target website with photos, go HERE and click on “no store? no computer? no prob.” The videos are pretty short so you may want to skip them. Select “how mobile GiftCards work” and then go to where it says “already got a GiftCard?” There are 3 videos, one for saving a card, sharing a card and combining your cards. The links for step by step instructions with photos are just above the videos.
