Target is a big-box store that offers a variety of home goods and – in some locations – groceries. Customers can shop in-store or use Target’s website for home delivery or pickup orders.
Military members have several options to save money while shopping at Target.

More Ways to Save at Target
Target’s military discount is only available at certain times of the year, but there are other ways to save money at Target.
Target Deal Days
Target Deal Days is a three-day event featuring online and in-store savings on thousands of items.
The pre-Black Friday sale competes with other popular sale events, like Amazon Prime Days. Anything you purchase during this period receives Target’s Holiday Price Match Guarantee. So, if you find the same item at a lower price through Dec. 24, Target will price-match it.
Target shoppers can save 5% on qualifying purchases with their RedCard.
The card comes in two forms:
- A Target RedCard debit card linked to your bank account
- A Target RedCard credit card, which requires an application for approval.
Use your RedCard at checkout when stopping in-store or online.
If you have the Target app, you can save your RedCard details in the app’s “wallet” section, then have a cashier scan your wallet barcode at checkout.
Does Target Ship to APO and FPO Addresses?
Yes, Target ships to APO and FPO addresses, but restrictions apply. The retailer won’t ship:
- Excessively heavy or oversized items
- Products sent directly from the manufacturer
- Products with lithium-ion batteries
- Some cosmetics and fragrances.

Hey Phillip, first download the Target Circle app and create an account, then login to that account on your computer (instead of your phone, just this once!) When you’re logged in, follow the instructions under “How to Add Your Target Military Discount to the App” in the article above to get it to work on your account.
