Target launches Wallet to combine payment, coupons at checkout

Target Launches Wallet in the Target App: a Faster, Easier Way to Pay and Save - Target Corporate Target launches Wallet to combine payment, coupons at checkout

We'd certainly love to see Target add support for Apple Pay in-stores as well, but given the amount of work the retail giant has put into integrating mobile payments, Red Card, and Cartwheel, we don't see that happening any time soon, unfortunately. The timing of the launch, in the middle of the holiday season, couldn't be better - well, unless you're already done with your gift shopping.

Wallet can make checkout four times faster than other payment types, according to Target. According to the retailer, the feature will eventually roll-out to non-REDcard holders, but gave no timeframe as to when that might be.

The main appeal of Wallet, though, is that it allows users to both pay with the app and scan coupons from the company's Cartwheel program and automatically apply the discounts.

9-hour rainbow in Taiwan may be the longest-lasting yet
A seasonal monsoon, slow wind speed, and sunlight sparked last Thursday's phenomenon, national newspaper Taiwan News reported . According to him, the department was ready to capture the rainbow as they had recorded a six-hour rainbow the previous Monday.

With Wallet in the Target app, customers are able to pay using their Target REDcard, and combine it with savings from Target's Cartwheel offers and weekly ad coupons, through their smartphones.

Target Wallet is also somewhat restrictive in its payment options since payments can only be made using Target's own REDcard. However, Walmart allows customers to make payments on Apple and Android devices with nearly all major credit, debit, and pre-paid cards or Walmart gift cards.

While it does mean that users will now have yet another payment system to keep track of, the Target app does at least conveniently keep everything Target-related in a single place, naturally. CVS and Starbucks offer similar mobile payment mechanisms. With only a few weeks left in the year, the retailer officially launched Wallet - available in the Target app for iOS and Android. "These "open the app, find the pay tab, and scan" services will be slower unless they find a way to skip steps and match the speed of NFC".
