Does Target Take American Express Credit Cards & Gift Cards?

Postby mylav » Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:50 pm

Before I drive all the way over to Target to find out, can you tell me does Target accept American Express for payment?

I have $50 Amex gift card to use and also am a cardholder of the Blue Cash. Thanks

Yes, I nearly always pay with my Amex at Target.

Thanks for the quick answer! Does Amex still give you awards when shopping at Target though? I remember my dad saying Costco doesn't earn him the same rewards when he shops there because it's a different type of store or something.

Amex rewards work just fine in Target. Costco is a special case since they have their own branded Amex card. The deal with Amex means they take other Amex cards, but the membership rewards points are lowered drastically to 1/4 point per dollar. Costco's own Amex card gives a full point per dollar and other benefits.
Cards:
American Express Platinum (NPSL)
Penfed Platinum Reward Visa ($28K)
Chase Freedom Visa ($25K)
Fidelity American Express ($20K)
American Express Blue Cash Preferred ($20K)
Bank of America Cash Rewards MasterCard ($20K)
Citi Thank You Preferred Visa ($9.5K)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K)
US Bank Cash + Visa Signature ($7K)
Discover IT ($4K)
