Veteran’s Day isn’t the only discount being offered to military families this year by the Target Corporation. Traditionally, on Veteran’s Day military members – active, reserve, and retired – were offered a military discount at Target. This past year, the offer was 10% off two purchases the week of Veteran’s Day. In May, Military Appreciation Month, Target made an announcement that it would support military members and their families. Part of this support included jobs, but also is expanded to a discount in July.
Military members and their families are now being offered 10% off during the week of July 4th- specifically from June 26 to July 4.
How To Verify for the Discount
To access this discount, the military service member and/or family member must verify their military status through the Target Circle app. Within the application on your mobile device, go to settings and select “Verify student, teacher or military service”. This will connect you to SheerID, the verification service. This service is used in other military discounts like SeaWorld’s Waves of Honor and companies that allow for military discounts with online purchases. Once the verification is complete, the option to verify will no longer be there. The military service member and one dependent are able to verify their identity to receive the discount.
When To Use the Discount
Once verified on the Target Circle app, the discount deal will show up on the Target Circle app on the dates of the deal – June 26 to July 4th. The discount can be used on up to 2 purchases, for online or in-store purchases. This can be combined with other offers from Target, for instance, their already discounted deals on furniture and televisions.
Attempts were made to contact Target Corporate to verify if the two purchases are per family or per verified member and told that this information was not available.
This discount is not limited by purchase amount like some Circle offers – you do not need to spend $100 to use the discount. It may be useful in purchasing that week’s groceries or perhaps buying things for your PCS or restocking your new home with furniture or buying that blow-up pool you have been eyeing.
