I was checking it out and the main page has a banner that says "Chip & Pin Peace of Mind." I was sure it was just a mistake, but the FAQ proves that it does indeed use chip+pin. I'm a little shocked.
I'm puzzled...I looked at it briefly, and the card agreement seems to be silent on the matter of FTFs...and yet I understand Target issues (or used to issue) Visa and MC cards, not just store-only cards.
Their Debit and reloadable cards advertise no FTF, but the credit card says nothing. One place says it is an MC, but the target website says it is via TD Bank, which is Visa only. It might be that Target charges no FTF but TD bank/Visa charge their 1% or whatever it is they are entitled to.

Very valid point. They even mention ReD debit cars have no mag stripe, so they are pushing EMV very hard.
