After clicking on this link after reading the CEO's message, target.com/10percent , I wasn't able to find any more info on this.
Is it a coupon or what?

Don't forget to use your credit card! :-(

Otherwise known as the "sorry for the credit card breach; please don't do your last minute Christmas shopping at Wal-Mart" sale.

@woottj: There's no coupon. Looks like everything is 10% off. It's part of Target trying to navigate the backlash from the credit card data breach. I'd recommend paying cash ...

Would this work on target gift cards? I just bought a few and wouldn't mind returning them and buying them again with the discount.

No, these kind of things are never good on gift cards, alcohol, video games, etc. Also, usually not on Apple, Bose, Levi's and other fancy brands.

Text from the Target site:

10% off storewide purchase only. Saturday 12/21 through Sunday 12/22.

Excludes all gift cards, entertainment cards, airtime cards, prepaid cards, iTunes cards, Apple, Bose, all video games, Playstation 4 consoles, Xbox One consoles, Target Mobile(SM), prescriptions, optical, clinic, and alcohol purchases. Offer cannot be combined with other storewide or category/department coupons.

Will they still give mean additional 5% off with the Red Card? I really need to stock up on Up N Up dryer sheets. LOL.

@chrisw6atv: Chances are good that the discount doesn't apply to dairy or eggs, as well.

They make sure to specify the Xbox One and PS4, but they don't mention the Wii U. Do you think the 10% can be used toward the Wii U?

@wloper: I'll letyouknowtomorrow. We are goin to buy one tomorrow as they have a free $25 gift card with the Mario bundle. I'm hoping to argue my way into an extra 10% lol

Be warned...I saw this at Krebs on Security. I'm not posting a link so it won't look like spam:

"Target is still not getting it right. I went shopping today at my hometown Target in Southern California. I liked the 10% discount but when I wrote a check for my transaction the cashier did not know how to frank (process) the check. Also they POS system would not accept the check for a little over $200. There was a declination from a company called Certegy that contracts with Target. When I contacted them I was told by the automated voice (there are no operators on the line). That since my check writing pattern was out of the ordinary for Target purchases, that my check was denied!"

This was a comment by a reader, not Brian Krebs.

It worked fine for me. I went to two different Targets. The first one looked like it was automatic in the system at checkout, but then at the second one the guy visibly scanned a coupon taped next to the register, then mentioning the 10% off.

I bought a wireless XBOX 360 controller this morning at Target in So. Cal. They took 10% off (noted on the receipt as "Target Coupon"), then I used my Target Card and it took another 5% off.
So in summary, the discounts do stack on eligible purchases.

@justonebrat: Thanks everyone. I actually ended up going to Best Buy for their Wii U and got a $25 certificate and ZombieU for free.

@wloper: thought about that as well but with the value of zombieu I felt 15% off was a better deal.
