Target Will Increase Free Shipping Threshold to $35

Target Will Increase Free Shipping Threshold to $35

On May 7th, Target will be raising their free shipping threshold from $25 to $35. This puts them on par with Amazon and Walmart, although Target's shipping threshold is moving in the opposite direction as their competitors'. Are you bummed? Not so fast!

In case you haven't heard, Target has this great thing called the REDcard. The Target REdcard comes in two different options: a credit card, and a free debit card that links directly to your bank account. Having a Target REDcard gets you free shipping no minimum when you order online, plus you'll get 5% off your purchases when you use it! Did we mention it's free?

But wait -- there's more! Starting Sunday May 7th, Target will offer a coupon for 10% off your shopping trip when you sign up for a new REDcard! It will be valid on almost everything -- the only exclusions are gift cards, prepaid cards, LEGO, Vitamix, Weber, Dyson, DSLR cameras and lenses, Google products, Apple, Sonos, Bose, GoPro, alcohol, Tylenol, CVS pharmacy, clinic, Target Optical, Portrait Studio and Target Mobile purchases. Remember, if you're interested in the coupon, make sure you wait til Sunday to sign up! The promotion for new REDcard customers will run through May 20th.

If you don't want a free Target REDcard, you can still shop online and choose free in-store pickup for orders under $35. However, we highly recommend it. That extra 5% discount can add up to some great savings, especially when you're purchasing big-ticket items like Black Friday TV doorbusters.

How does this affect Target's Black Friday 2017 plans? They've offered free shipping no minimum during the holidays for the past three years, so we have a feeling that we'll see that again this holiday season. We'll be sure to keep you updated!

Thanks for Visiting and Tell Your Friends!
