Gone are the Days of Writing a Check at Target

Gone are the days of writing a check at Target.

The Minnesota-based retailer has confirmed that it’ll NO LONGER accept personal checks as a form of payment.

According to a spokesperson with the company – that change comes due to “extremely low volumes” in check writers – and it’ll go into effect, July 15th.

A spokesperson states “Target is committed to creating both an easy and convenient checkout experience, and that includes providing our guests with numerous ways to pay,” the spokesperson says it has taken “several measures” to notify customers in advance.  Target accepts several other forms of payment, including – Target Circle Cards (formerly known as Target Red Cards), digital wallets, SNAP/EBT, cash cards, credit and debit cards – as well as buy-now pay later services.

Customers can still send checks through the mail to pay for Target Circle Card balances.

Target isn’t the first retailer to make a move away from paper checks.  The discount grocer Aldi and organic store Whole Foods, also do not take checks.
