Finally pays off to have multiple Target Store Cards! lol

So my usual Sunday of going grocery shopping at Target yesterday happened and since I have 4 Target cards that I try to rotate I took 2 with me yesterday,  My bill was just over $200 so I asked the cashier for $100 on the first one, swiped and the 5% came off... Remianing balnce about $95, swiped and 5% comes off again for a total of 10%.  I hadn't noticed until the girl said "that was smart, you just got 10% off" I was like really and looked at my receipt and sure enough savings just over $20!!

Thanks Target Smiley Happy

No actually I saved 5% on $200 x 2 = 10%... I know this because tax is 9.75% and my savings was just above my tax total

and no I don't have a government job, why?

lol, I was thinking the same thing in my head as I was reading.

5% on first $100=$5.00

5% on the difference ~$100= ~$5.00

Where the $20 discount came from?

Sorry to get off topic, but I have to know!

 

How do you  have more than 1 card for the same store?  Are they all in your name?  Are they all store cards...or  a 'mix' of store and Visa??

 

I've just never heard of having more than 1 card for a store.  Will all stores let you do this....or is this a "Target' thing?
