Target REDCard®: Receive an Extra 5% Coupon (In Addition to Regular 5% off) if you Sign Up Before November 10

Why Don’t You Have a #TargetREDcard?

I asked this question to my friends, family, tweeps, blogger buds and almost anyone I have been speaking to over the last couple of weeks. The reason that I was asking everyone about the Target REDcard is that until recently even I  didn’t have one.


I like to think of myself as a smart shopper. I love to get a deal or discount on almost everything I can. Since I am this way I didn’t understand why I hadn’t made the move to get a card. I have given up savings of 5% on almost every shopping trip that I have taken since the first Target Store opened in March 2013.  I attended the opening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So for the last 18 months Target Canada would have given me 5% savings on almost every purchase I made. And yes savings on each visit. That’s 18 months of savings I have been missing out on, crazy!

The savings happen EVERY time you use your Target Debit/Credit Card. It happens that same day. No waiting for savings. You see the savings immediately, each and every time you shop at Target!

5% Savings on almost all Purchases over the last 18 months – DO THE MATH

If you shop at Target once a week that equals 52 shopping trips per year. That’s savings on each trip. Don’t make my mistake of waiting 18 months to get a REDCard, oh the savings I missed out on. You don’t have to miss out you can start saving now, the only decision you have to make is which of their two REDCards you should get.

Look at your average Target receipt and then calculate 5%,


Get a #TargetREDcard before November 10th and you will receive an additional 5% Coupon

If you don’t have a Target REDcard, now Target has given you  some extra incentive to get a card ASAP!


We want to educate Canadian’s on the benefits of a REDcard. Our American friends are already aware of the benefits so we thought, as Target Fans on both sides of the border we would do our part! #TargetREDcard

Did you know that Target has two payment options that will take 5% off your bill every time you shop. Yes everytime you shop. It is an immediate savyings.

REDcard Debit Option

The first option is debit card option that will debit your existing  personal chequing account. This card can only be used in a Target store.


REDcard Credit Option

The second is their Credit card option, which is the r you can use the Target RBC MasterCard, a MasterCard with no annual fee. You get you 5% off every Target purchase, as long as you’re using the Target MasterCard as your form of payment. It also provides .5% cash rewards on all purchases (outside of Target) as well as purchase security and extended warranty insurance.


If you sign up for either the debit card or credit card  before before November 10, 2014, you will get a a one-time coupon for an extra 5% off any purchase. ( so it is  5% + 5% = 10%)

Open up a new REDcard before November 10, 2014 and you get an extra 5% off coupon with your card to use on a shopping trip at a Target Store. Be on your way to maximum savings and rewards with a Target REDCard!

Showing Friends How #ThankFALL I Am

With the coming of Fall, I wanted to plan one last outside barbeque with our friends before the weather gets to cold. I am thankful for my friends and wanted to show them how thankful I am for them! While we all love getting together for an afternoon of good conversation, grilling, and relaxing outside we usually all chip in with the cooking and cleaning. For my barbeque, I wanted to treat and pamper them with a good meal and an evening of conversation without them having to do anything!

The cool weather has been moving in fast, so I needed to get my barbeque plans in action! I wanted everything to be just right and done. Planning the menu and then a list of what is needed always makes it easier on me and saves time. For whatever is needed, I can pick it up all at once and know I have everything covered. I hate being in the middle of cooking and realizing I don’t have everything I need!

I planned out my menu – everything from appetizers to munch on before the meal, meat, side dishes and drinks. As I made out the menu, I wrote down exactly what I was going to need to purchase for each thing. I also checked to see if I needed any condiments such as ketchup, mustard, etc. We were also running low on sturdy paper plates, so those went on the list as well as plastic utensils and napkins. No one wants a stack of dishes to tackle after the barbeque!


I also remembered the last time we got together, our friends had mentioned that playing horseshoes sounded like fun. Well, what better time to surprise them and give it a try than in the nice cool air! So, I added a horseshoe game to my shopping list. I headed to Target  with my list of grocery items, paper goods and my horseshoe game. This was going to be so much fun!


My shopping trip went smooth as silk! I found everything I needed on my list. I even found some cute little table decorations to go on our picnic table! Everything was ready and my excitement was building! Friends provide us with so much, from supporting us in the bad times to celebrating with us in the good times. I am thankful for my friends and I couldn’t wait to show them with a fun filled day of grilling, conversation and playing horseshoes!

Thankful For The Love of Pets

Don’t you just love this time of year? Although the transition from summer to fall happens so quickly, the crisp air and the falling leaves are always so comforting. Heading into Thanksgiving weekend, I’m taking the opportunity to reflect on what I’m most thankful for this season.

Just this summer, my cat of 19 years passed away. Kalin was actually my fiancés cat, and so he grew up with him throughout his teen years. I only met Kalin in my late 20’s but I immediately fell in love with him. It was only my first time meeting Kalin and my second date with my fiancé-to-be when he came and sat right in between us. He was monopolizing my attention and nothing changed much after that! A grey Scottish Fold, Kalin was a true beauty. In fact, I’ve never met a cat quite like him; gentle, shy, and affectionate. He showed me the purest form of love and in the most unconditional way possible. By the time I met Kalin, he had used up far more than nine lives, so I knew his time with us was precious. Not a single day passed where I didn’t stop to appreciate his presence in our lives.

Today, I’m taking the time to reflect on this. I’m so thankful for the many wonderful years we shared with Kalin. While he is no longer with us, I feel at peace knowing he is in a far better place now.  And although he is no longer physically with us, his spirit and all the loving memories we have with him will live on in our hearts forever.

Target Canada, ThankFALL

While the love of a new pet can never replace that of an old one, sharing your love with an animal brings joy to your life every day. It took a lot of courage, but once we were ready, my fiancé and I set out to find a new kitten to share our love with.  This time we had the joy of choosing one together; in fact, we let him choose us.  We’ve just welcomed this new love into our lives and we couldn’t be more thankful. SCOUT is a curious and playful Ragdoll that is eager to please! It will be interesting to see his personality develop as he matures. For now, he is more playful than you can imagine. To show him just how much we love him, we’ve filled our house with toys from Target so he can play to his hearts content. Let’s just say he’s having a ball.

These are the goodies we bought SCOUT from Target Canada: 2-story Play Center, SmartyKat RunawayRascal remote-controlled mouse, and SmartyKat Skitter Critters.

Target Canada, ThankFALL

Although it’s that time of year when we think about what we are most thankful for, we can still be thankful for the love of our pets every day. Happy Thanksgiving.

What are you thankful for this season? Be sure to share your thoughts with us on social media by using the hashtag #ThankFALL!

Target Canada, ThankFALL
