You all know how much I love Target, right? It’s my go-to place to shop for quick and easy healthy items with style.

So I’m anxiously awaiting the roll out of Target’s new loyalty rewards program called RedPerks. That’s right I’m waiting. Along with almost everyone else.

UPDATE: May 24, 2017 – Target has discontinued any new applications to the Target RedPerks program, per a Tweet they sent me in regards to all of the links to the program being deactivated:

Target is trying out their new loyalty program that is part of the RedPerks program and available via an app on Android and IOS phones, but only in select markets. And trying to find where those markets are located is tough.

You can sign up on their RedPerks website to see if you are in the area where RedPerks is now being tested, and on the device that Target’s RedPerks is being tested on in your area.

Raleigh, NC residents seem to be the happy Target customers, with many people in the Raleigh area able to sign up for the Target RedPerks loyalty program. North Carolina seems to be the only lucky state. Target states on their iTunes app that parts of NC are eligible – yet doesn’t specify which parts of NC. (UPDATE October 2016: We’re hearing that Denver, Houston, San Diego and St. Louis are also the lucky customers who get to try out Target RedPerks).

Not so much for me, though, even as a resident of one of the busiest urban areas in the country – Orlando, FL.

Target has a new loyalty program. Saving money while shopping has never been so easy. But can you apply yet? Click through to see based on where you live.

UPDATE: As of October 5, 2016, Target is now saying that RedPerks will be merged with your Cartwheel account. However, it’s still not available nationwide. It is unclear as to when the RedPerks Target Loyalty Program will be available through Cartwheel for everyone.

Shopping Get EXTRA money back using Ebates – on top of RedPerks savings, Target Red Card savings, and sales! It’s free to join with my affiliate link – and you’ll get a $10 gift card for joining!

You must sign up on the RedPerks website to see if it’s available in your area, and to be notified when the loyalty program opens in your area. Downloading the RedPerks app is only by invitation at this time (Update Oct. 5, 2016 – you can download the app, but after you download it asks for your zip code. If Target RedPerks is not in your area, you can’t do anything else with the app.)

This loyalty program at Target is currently different than the Cartwheel app and 5% savings with a Target card.

Yes - I just confirmed with Target they are no longer accepting any new applicants to Target RedPerks. They said to keep an eye on Cartwheel for future ideas.

Yikes! It does look like Target took down all of the links. I can't find any official mention of the Target RedPerks program. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

I had Redperks and get an error message when use app now saying to go to only to arrive at Cartwheel and I lost all my past point info. I was only one shopping trip away from another 5% day. What's the deal? Raleigh area by the way

I signed up for red perks a while ago when it was a separate app only to be told it wasn't available for me yet. Then a few months ago, I noticed that my app was updated and I had the new perks section. I live in Sanford, FL. I've been racking up points and redeeming rewards since. Tonight I went to use my reward and the cashier was amazed as he had not seen the perks before. He called over another co-worker to show her how awesome it was, and it ended up being a manager. She very callously mentioned that the perks was not available in FL and that there is a glitch in the system that is allowing it to work and promptly removed the reward from my purchase much to the dismay of my 5 year old who was excited to be getting the Trolls DVD with that perk. When I mentioned that this has been working for several months, she retrieved a piece of paper and read a script apologizing and offered to hold the item until the program was available in the area. The manager was very accusatory in her tone and I felt very put off by the whole situation and feel it could have been handled much better.

WHAT?!?!?!? That is HORRIBLE! Yes, as a fellow Floridian I'm so upset that we can't use this. But it was THEIR mistake. That is horrible. I'd go on social media and complain. Seriously. I'm upset for you - and your child.

I was in Colorado Springs, CO last October and I went to Target and saw the sign for the Perks program. I asked about it and the cashier told me about it and helped me at it up on my phone. I live in NJ and we don't have it here yet but I'm still racking up the points. I am going to have to see if I can redeem them here in NJ. Also what the cashier told me is to scan your Cartwheel barcode every time you shop even if you don't have any Cartwheel offers because that's how you earn the points. If you forgot to scan it at the store, you can scan the barcode on the receipt with the Cartwheel scanner and it will add those dollars/points to your account.

Cynthia, thank you for the tip about scanning the receipt. I forgot to scan my cartwheel app for a $90+ purchase I made today. Because it was too late to go back to Target, and I didn't feel like talking on the phone, I went online looking for an answer to whether or not I could still get Perks credit. Your advice to scan the receipt worked! I received a message on the app that my points would be credited within 48 hours (or maybe it was 24).

I live in a city south of Houston, and have had Perks since last year. I didn't realize only certain areas have the program, and I hope everyone will have it soon. They offer a nice list of items to choose from, and the app tells you when items will expire. It's incredible, the points add up very quickly.

Wow! Thanks so much, Cynthia! Those are great tips! Hope to be able to use them and put them to the test soon :)
