You can’t load your Target REDcard with a credit card.  However, you can load your Target REDcard with a pin-enabled gift card.

Do you know which pin-enabled gift cards you can load to Target REDcard?

 

8 Pin-Enabled Gift Cards You Can Load to Target REDcard

Just like Bluebird and Serve, you can load up to $2,500 a day ($5,000 a month) to your Target REDcard with pin-enabled gift cards.

You have to go to Walmart to load your Bluebird and Serve card.  But with the Target REDcard, you can load your REDcard at Target.  This is great for people who don’t have a Walmart nearby (or don’t like going to Walmart) or live or work near a Target.

 

Which Pin Enabled Gift Cards Can Be Loaded to Target REDcard

1. Gift Cards Bought at Office Supply Stores

You can buy fixed rate Visa and MasterCard gift cards at Staples, Office Depot and Office Max in $25, $50, $100, and $200 denominations with a credit card.

Variable rate gift cards are also available at Office Depot and Office Max, but you can not purchase them using a credit card.

All gift cards sold at Office Depot, Office Max, and Staples can be loaded to your Target REDcard.

You’ll earn 5X Chase Ultimate Reward points when you use your Chase Ink Cash credit card.

2. Gift Cards Bought at Drug Stores

You can buy fixed rate and variable load Visa and MasterCard gift cards at drug stores with a miles and points earning and cash back credit card.

Both fixed rate and variable load Visa and MasterCard gift cards sold at participating grocery stores can be loaded to a Target REDcard.

Use a card like the Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature card and earn 3X Hilton points at drug stores.

3. Gift Cards Bought at Gas Stations

Many grocery stores sell fixed rate and variable load Visa and MasterCard gift cards.  However, not all gas stations will let you purchase gift cards with a credit card.

Visa and MasterCard gift cards sold at gas stations can be loaded to a Target REDcard.

You’ll earn 6X Hilton points at gas stations when you pay with your American Express Hilton Surpass card.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 100,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
 


Chase Freedom Unlimited

The Chase Freedom Unlimited is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of $200 after spending $500 in the first three months.
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back at grocery stores the first 12 months (up to $12k), unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can use your points to travel for free.

Why would one load load gift cards to a Target Card?

Debra Schroeder

Hi SC,

The Target REDcard allows you to pay bills and you get 5% off when you shop at Target. So instead of using cash you used to be able to load gift cards bought with credit cards to your Target REDcard.

However, Target stopped allowing gift and debit card loads to their REDcard in October.
