New reasons to love the Target Wedding Registry
One of my favorite places on earth is Target. Who hasn’t had the experience of wandering into that place on a mission to pick up a few specific items and walked out with a cart full of stuff they didn’t know they needed? #Guiltyascharged
Because of the general awesomeness of Target, the retailer has long been a go-to for wedding registries. Additionally, thanks to Target’s great product assortment and low prices, it’s super simple for couples and their wedding guests to curate and find the perfect gift.
Target also offers some unbeatable registry perks, including a discount on the items remaining on your registry after the big day. Sounds like an excuse to add all the things to your wedding registry, if you ask me. 😉
They’ve basically created the Ultimate Wedding Registry experience for couples, and we truly believe that Target is one of the best places to register for your wedding gifts. Find out why below!

Savvy Secrets to Getting More from Your Target Wedding Registry
Thanks to RetailMeNot for sharing these savvy shopping tips!
1. Get the Target RedCard
Signing up for Target’s RedCard can get you more savings when you shop! Choose between the two versions of the RedCard: one is connected directly to your checking account so it essentially works as a debit card. The other is a credit card, where you’ll get 5% savings on all your online and in-store purchases using the RedCard (including in-store trips to Starbucks!) RedCard holders also receive early access to special products and promotions, free two-day shipping and free, extended returns! Being a RedCard holder is definitely a way to get the most out of completing your Target Registry.
2. Shop Strategically
Many Target shoppers tend to hit the stores on Sundays to shop the newest discounts from their weekly newspaper insert. While that’s a savvy strategy, shopping on Monday or Tuesday allows the store to restock its shelves, which means favorite items that were MIA Sunday might be available.
There’s also rumors that Target pushes out new clearance items on certain departments on specific days of the week. Savvy tip: Tuesdays are rumored to be the day for new clearance on domestic goods, while Thursdays are said to be houseware and decor. PS — you can also shop the Target Clearance Section online!
3. Get cash back via Target Circle
Target recently launched a free Target Circle rewards program (Formerly Cartwheel) that allows members to earn 1% cash back on every purchase to redeem at Target later. All you have to do to participate is download the Target App and swipe the barcode at checkout. (Alternatively, you can provide your phone number at Checkout.)
On top of earning cash back, members also get even more special deals and perks! From birthday gifts, early access to special sales, to even personalized deals based on your shopping habits– Target Circle hooks up savvy shoppers who use their program!
4. Stack Target coupons
Did you know you can actually combine Target’s various coupons & discount offers? Stack your Target Circle offers with Target store coupons, manufacturer coupons *and* Target RedCard discounts. It’s totally possible to save four different ways on the same item! Want to try it for yourself? If you’re using Target Circle offers and coupons, have the cashier ring up the items you’re buying. Next, give your cashier any Target store coupons, followed by manufacturer coupons that you have to use. Then, provide your Target Circle barcode to scan, and finish by paying with your RedCard, which will give you 5 percent off the total purchase! Savvy shopping for the win!
