I think they basically discontinued it a couple of years ago when Chase took over (prior to TD Bank), but they did allow existing Target Visa cardholders to keep their accounts.

Chase never owned target but yes the visa has been gone for some time but those who had it got to keep it.

True. Chase's role was a bit more complicated than that.... http://voices.yahoo.com/jp-morgan-chase-agrees-buy-interest-target-receivables-1443529.html

There have been rumors that TD Bank may bring the Visa back. But, you can get the same rewards at Target with the Red Card.

 

We have the Visa and find it useless outside of Target. Back in the day, they offered rewards for purchases outside of Target but this is no longer the case.

 

So, the Debit card or the Red card will get you the same thing.

 

The 5% does add up. So far this year, we have saved $290 by using the Target Visa.

I have contacted them to have my card changed to a VISA and was told they are not currently doing it. My CL is only $900 but I only use about $200-200 a month at Tar-jayyy
