This agreement explains how your Target Debit Card ("Card") will work. It also explains the terms that both you and we agree to follow with respect to this Card. In this Agreement "we," "us," and "our" mean Target Corporation. "You" and "your" mean everyone who is liable for purchases made using this Card. By your use of this Card, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. This Card may be used only for personal, family or household purposes.

  1. YOUR PAYMENT AGREEMENT —

    By using your Card, you authorize us to initiate an electronic fund transfer ("EFT") for the full amount of the transaction and any related fees from your designated deposit account at another financial institution ("Deposit Account"). You represent and warrant to us that you are an owner of your Deposit Account and you are authorized to make EFTs to and from your Deposit Account. You also represent and warrant to us that your Deposit Account is held at a bank located in the United States. If you have designated an Authorized User to us, you agree to be individually responsible for all EFTs made by your Authorized User. You also authorize and agree to pay for all EFTs made by anyone you allow to use the Card. In this Agreement, “PIN” refers to the personal identification number associated with your Card and any other personal identification number you use to authorize a purchase using the Target Debit Card, including any PIN or password that you use to access any mobile wallet where you store your Target Debit Card number. You agree that you understand the nature and importance of your Card and PIN and you will safeguard your Card and all PINs to prevent against unauthorized use. There may be circumstances when we will not require you to enter your Target Debit Card PIN to make a purchase if you authorize the purchase using another method. For example, we may not require you to enter your Target Debit Card PIN if you have already provided a separate PIN to access your Card in a mobile wallet that we accept. Even if you do not enter your Target Debit Card PIN to make a purchase, you still authorize any such EFT and the terms and conditions of this Agreement apply to any such EFT. You agree that any EFT may occur several business days after your transaction(s) have occurred and after the date shown on your transaction receipt(s). You agree that you will not use your Card to make purchases for amounts in excess of available funds you have in your Deposit Account as determined by the financial institution holding your Deposit Account ("Depository Bank") as of the date the Depository Bank processes the EFT. We may resubmit an EFT one or more times if the Depository Bank has not sent funds equal to the total previously requested EFT amount. Your authorization will remain in effect until we have received notification from you of your termination in such time and in such manner as to afford us and the financial institution that holds your Deposit Account to act on it. You may revoke your authorization and close your Card by calling us toll free at (888) 729-7331, or write: Target Corporation, c/o Financial and Retail Services, P.O. Box 9491, Minneapolis, MN, 55440.
  2. ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER TYPES —

    You may only use your Card to pay for goods and services at participating Target retail stores in the United States and at the Target.com website. You may not be able to use the Target Debit Card at the mobile Target.com website. We may provide you the opportunity to use your Card to make purchases of goods or services at affiliates or designated third parties that have special relationships with Target or Target.com. These offers to use your Card at affiliates of Target or designated third parties may be for a limited time only. These offers may be subject to terms and conditions in addition to or different from those provided in this Agreement, which will be described in the offer. Unless otherwise expressly stated in such offers, the terms of this Agreement shall apply to any offer. You must present your Card and enter your PIN if you wish to use your Card to pay for goods or services at Target retail stores. At the Target.com website you must enter your Card number and your PIN if you wish to pay for goods or services with your Card. If you make an exchange of an item previously purchased using your Card for another item in accordance with our merchandise exchange policy, any difference in price will be credited by EFT to, or transferred by EFT from, your Deposit Account as applicable. If you return an item previously purchased using your Card in accordance with our merchandise return policy, the amount of the return will be credited by EFT to your Deposit Account.
  3. ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER LIMITATIONS —

    When you use your Card, you will be limited by the amount of funds in your Deposit Account and any available overdraft line of credit that you may have in connection with your Deposit Account (if applicable), as of the date the Depository Bank receives and processes an EFT. For security and fraud prevention purposes, there are limits on the number of times you may use your Card and/or the total dollar amount of purchases that you may make with your Card. You agree that the dollar amount limitation on your Card may be less than the dollar amount of available funds in your Deposit Account and that such dollar amount and transaction limitations may change from time to time without any notice to you. You cannot use your Card at an automated teller machine or at non-participating retail stores or anywhere outside the United States. You cannot use your Card to make payment on any credit card accounts issued by us or any Target-branded credit card account whether the credit card is issued by us, our affiliates or our financial institution partner. We may provide you the opportunity to use your Card to authorize recurring preauthorized EFTs from your Deposit Account. If you use your Card to authorize a recurring preauthorized EFT, that authorization will remain in effect until you notify us to stop payment. To stop payment, you must contact us at least three business days before the scheduled date of the next transfer. To stop payment, contact us by calling (888) 729-7331 or write: Target Corporation, P.O. Box 9491, Minneapolis, MN 55440.
  4. UNPAID EFTS —

    The Depository Bank may return as unpaid an EFT if, for example, your Deposit Account does not have sufficient available funds in it to cover the full amount of the EFT, or your Deposit Account is closed, or for other reasons. Additionally, if you receive a credit to your Deposit Account from us due to a suspected EFT error, and we later determine there was no error, we may deem such EFT as unpaid. In the event an EFT is returned or deemed unpaid, the funds owed to us will become immediately due and payable to us. You agree to pay in United States dollars the full amount of the unpaid EFT and any applicable Returned Payment Fees. You also agree that we may suspend use of your Card until we receive payment in full of all amounts due and payable to us. If we determine you have too many EFTs that are returned as unpaid, we may terminate your Card, even if you pay the unpaid EFTs. At our option, we may obtain payment for any check or other instrument that you send to us by initiating an electronic (including Automated Clearing House) transfer from your bank account in the amount of your check or instrument. Your check or instrument will not be returned to you by us or by your bank. Your bank account may be debited as early as the same day we receive your payment. If we cannot process the electronic transfer or if the electronic transfer is returned to us, we may present the original check or other instrument, a substitute check, draft or similar instrument to obtain payment.
  5. UNAUTHORIZED EFTS —

    You will tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Card, Card number, or PIN has been lost or stolen. Telephoning us is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your Deposit Account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit) that can be accessed by the Card. If you tell us within four business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, Card number, or PIN, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card, Card number, or PIN without your permission.

    If you do NOT tell us within four business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, Card number, or PIN, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Card, Card number, or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.

    Also, if your statement from the Depository Bank shows EFTs that you did not make, you must tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 90 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 90 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.

    If you believe your Card, Card number, or PIN has been lost or stolen call us toll free at (888) 729-7331, or write: Target Corporation, c/o Financial and Retail Services, P.O. Box 9491, Minneapolis, MN, 55440.
  6. RETURNED PAYMENT FEE —

    If the Depository Bank returns an EFT unpaid for any reason, you agree to pay a "Returned Payment Fee" as follows:

    Amount State in which EFT occurred
    $40 DE, FL (if EFT amount is greater than $300), MS
    $35 CA (except for first return), MD, VA
    $30 AL, AK, FL (if EFT amount is $50.01-$300), GA, IA, KS, MN, MT, OH, SC, SD, TN, TX, WY

    $20 CO, CT, HI, ID, IN, NY, PA, UT
    You authorize us to initiate an electronic fund transfer for such Returned Payment Fee from your Deposit Account automatically, after we receive notice of an unpaid EFT. You agree to pay the Returned Payment Fee if any check or other instrument given as payment to us for amounts you owe in connection with your Card is not honored by your bank.
  7. DOCUMENTATION —

    We will not be liable, for instance:
    • If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Deposit Account to make the EFT; or,
    • If the EFT would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line; or,
    • If the point-of-sale terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the EFT; or,

    • There may be other exceptions stated in this Agreement.

    • As otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy.

  13. DEFAULT —

    Subject to applicable law, you will be in default under this Agreement if you violate any terms of this Agreement, including without limitation if we receive notice of an unpaid EFT, or if you become the subject of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings.

If we refer your Card to an attorney for collection, you must pay to us all costs and expenses of collection, including attorneys' fees, to the extent not prohibited by law.

    Even if you are not in default, we reserve the right to terminate your Card privileges at any time. All Cards we issue are our property and they must be returned to us if we ask you to return them. If you have unpaid EFTs and related fees, as permitted by law, we may require that any merchandise purchased using your Card which you return be processed as a credit to the unpaid EFTs or the related fees. Upon any termination of this Agreement by you or us, you will continue to be obligated to pay all amounts owing under this Agreement, and to otherwise perform the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
  14. ACCORD AND SATISFACTION —
