If you are the kind of person who loves Target and loves a Target military discount — and let’s be honest, who isn’t? — then you are going to be as excited as we are that Target has brought back its Veterans Day military discount for 2021.
Like last year, shoppers need to take an extra step to use it.
How to get your Target military Veterans Day discount
According to Target, the 10% discount will be available Oct. 31 to Nov. 13 in store and online. To use it shoppers must add their military status to a Target Circle account via the Target app or Target's website.
From there, users should visit the Target military registration page and enter their details. We tested registration in 2020 using two accounts, one as a dependent of a veteran and one as a dependent of an active duty service member. In both instances all that was required was information on the service member’s name, birth date and, in the case of the veteran, service end date. Registration was verified immediately after submitting the form.
This year, the coupon can be used twice.
Before 2020, users had to apply for a coupon online by submitting a series of details -- name, service, date of birth, email address -- and were either approved immediately or asked to supply supporting documentation.
Once approved, a coupon was sent by email and was then available for use in the discount window.
Tying military status to your Circle account will also make you eligible for future “bonus offers” their website says.
In the past, that 10% came off your entire basket, but some exclusions applied.
They included: Gifts cards; alcohol; Baby Alive Grow Up Baby; Barbie Dreamhouse & Camper; Beats Powerbeats; Beats Powerbeats Pro; Beats Solo Pro; Bose; The Child action figure; clinic & pharmacy; dairy milk; Disney Frozen Castle; Elf on the Shelf; Elvie; Facebook Oculus and Portal; face masks; Hasbro Games (Classic Monopoly, Connect Four, Jenga, Rubik’s Cube, Sorry, Trouble); HP; Instant Pot; LEGO; limited-time designer partnerships; LG OLED TV; mobile contracts; Nerf Ultra; Nikon DSLR cameras and lenses; prepaid cards; PlayStation consoles; Samsung TVs; Sonos; Sony Electronics; Tylenol pain relief; unlocked mobile phones; and Xbox consoles,” according to the website.
