Does Target give a 5% discount if you write a check?
I know Target gives a 5% discount on purchases when you use the Target credit card or debit card, but today I was told by a cashier that they will also give a 5% discount if you write a physical check (not a debit card). This seems really odd to me, but he claimed they do it because Target saves on credit/debit transaction fees. Given the hassle of checks, it doesn't seem likely that Target would want to encourage it. I didn't have a checkbook with me to try it. I never carry mine anywhere anymore and I have a Target card, anyway.
Has anyone been able to get the Target 5% discount by writing a check?
