Target store card upgraded to Target Mastercard

I'm a ittle excited about this one. In today's mail, I got a letter from Target stating effective  8/14/19, my store card would be upgraded to the Target Mastercard. Also my credit limit was increased to $6000. I'm very excited to see this.  This is one of my most used cards, as I'm in Target once a week to pick up something.  I wish they had the rewards at 5% across the board, but I can't be too choosy!

 

Anyone else get this offer yet?

Re: Target store card upgraded to Target Mastercard

I’ve been hoping for it but no joy so far. Great to hear that it’s still a thing though and hopefully it’ll happen at some point. Congrats on getting it - it’s not a common upgrade.

Based on another thread, I'm hoping to be upgraded in 6 months if everything keeps going the way it's going.

What is the significance of this? I'm sure other cards offer better rewards for spending outside of target. Plus don't they start you off with a new account?

Re: Target store card upgraded to Target Mastercard

The significance.
I can't speak for anyone else but for me it was a higher limit (currently 14k), and a account that can be used anywhere MC is excepted. I haven't used mine outside of Target yet, but I like having the option. I don't carry many cards so it's nice to have an additional back up. Also their is certain benefits that come with having non-store cards (like lower auto insurance rates).

For me, and assuming everyone else it was a true conversion, same account, same history. Definitely not a new account.

I believe the Target Mastercard is a Chip + PIN card, which can be nice to have for security reasons.

Re: Target store card upgraded to Target Mastercard

This is fantastic. Hopefully that will be in my future. I get CLI's from TD bank on a regular 3 month basis. I wonder what the factors are to trigger them to send that out?

Re: Target store card upgraded to Target Mastercard

Ok good to know. I thought I read about it being new account. Maybe that was the Walmart card? Has anyone requested a conversion, or do you have to wait for it?
