So while the official start date of the new 5% Off Rewards Program for REDCard holders is this Sunday, October 17th, I received an e-mail from Marisa this morning that they have already put it in place at her Sioux City, IA store. Guests in Kansas City (the test market for this program) have been enjoying this program since last year! Marisa was also told that many stores in the midwest have already put this into effect. Let us know if they’ve already started this in your store and what you think!
If you have not heard of this program yet, this new rewards system will give customers using a REDcard (check or credit card) 5% instantly off their purchases every time they shop and use their card. It is my understanding that you get the 5% off upon payment (when you swipe your REDcard) and the discount shows up on your receipt. The discount is taken after all coupons and before tax and I believe any Gift Cards purchased in your order are exempt from the discount.
You can check out the comments on my original post on this new program HERE where we had several readers from the Kansas City test Market give their opinions and thoughts. The initial Press Release on this new 5% Program as well as changes to the Pharmacy Rewards program can be found on the Target site HERE.
-Thanks Marisa & thanks to all those in KC who shared their thoughts on the previous post!
