Shoppers want high-quality, affordable options — even better if they can pick up everything they need at a single store. Superstores and wholesale clubs sell all the basics a regular family needs, including fresh produce, clothing, hardware and fixtures, electronics, auto supplies, and even prescription medicine. Many of these giant retailers now offer their own store credit cards, allowing consumers to earn rewards and save even more on everyday purchases.
Superstore Credit Cards
You can buy pretty much anything at these superstores, and many of these credit cards offer additional rewards, discounts, or benefits on top of the everyday savings.
The Target REDCard offers 5% off all your purchases at Target and Target.com, plus free shipping on most orders at Target.com and an extra 30 days to return items. There’s also a debit card version of the REDcard, which works like a check and draws on your checking account. There is no annual fee for either card.
