We wrote about a FREE $2 Target giftcard from Shopkick the other day, and I saw a few of you comment that you couldn’t use it in the store. Turns out you were correct – the giftcards are valid online only. I just received an e-mail from Shopkick this morning apologizing, and they put 600 kicks in my account, not bad! Along with that, there is a link where you can go to get your gift card balance.
I believe what we are getting is Target eGiftcards, which CAN be converted into Target Mobile Giftcards and then used in the store. Here’s what it says on the Giftcard Help page:
Just choose an amount, include a message and your Target eGiftCard will be emailed to the recipient usually within 4 hours. Until converted to a Target Mobile Gift Card, Target eGiftCards may only be used at Target.com.
I don’t see anything else about online only anywhere, so you should be able to use these in store after a little bit of work.
