How To Delete Target Account Online

When talking about one of the largest online e-commerce websites, Target is usually mentioned. This one allows its user to purchase almost everything at the discounted prices from its store. Just like any other online e-commerce websites, Target has a website. The official website of Target allows its users to do a few things such as creating and editing account information, uploading pictures, browsing or searching through the list of products and purchasing the product from the store.

While it is true that Target is loved by many, there are some people who want to delete their Target account due to some reasons, such as:

    • They keep getting a number of ads through their emails from Target regarding offers, updates or discounts.
    • They want to cancel their subscriptions but they have no idea how to do it so they look for a way to delete their accounts as a whole.
    • They have moved to a different location where Target is not available.

How To Delete Target Account Online

If you are one of these users who want to delete your Target account because you keep getting the ads through your email and you feel annoyed, instead of deleting your Target account, you are suggested to avoid ad emails or unsubscribe from services. However, if your reason is something else, there is no one that can stop from deleting your Target account.

Before deleting your Target account, you have to know that there are a few kinds of Target accounts. Below are some of the options that you may have signed up for:

    • Target.com: Target.com refers to the official website of Target. It is the place where customers like you can place orders to purchase items. You may have purchased something before from this website and you may want to delete your account and password because this account is connected to your email address, home address, and credit card number. The possible reason why you want to delete your Target account is because you want to prevent yourself from being the victim of identity theft.
    • Target Circle: Target Circle is the name of a rewards program that is offered by the store. Deleting the account of Target Circle is a different process from removing your account from Target.com.
    • Target RedCard: Target RedCard is the name of a credit card that is related to Target. This one is only able to be used at Target. Before deleting your credit card account, you should know that it may affect your credit score. Deleting this account is a separate process from deleting the two accounts mentioned above.

There are several different methods that you can try if you want to delete your Target account. All of them can be found below:

Method 1: Deleting Target account via the official website of Target
