If you don’t have time to make a Target run but need that $5 gorgeous glass tumbler ASAP, you’re in luck. The store recently launched a new paid membership program called Target Circle 360 which offers free same-day delivery (in some cases in as little as an hour!) for orders over $35 as well as standard free two-day shipping. 

If you’re eager to get your hands on this deal, Target is offering a special discount for members who sign up from April 7 through May 18 for just $49 per year. After that, the membership cost jumps to $99 per year. 

Existing Target Circle credit card holders, be prepared to experience even more savings. Not only will you continue to get the additional perks and five percent off, the $49 membership fee is available regardless of what time you join. Also, you won’t need to scroll before you get to the cashier searching for which coupons apply to your order because applicable deals will be added automatically at checkout, making saving even more hassle-free. 

Similar to other memberships like Instacart and Amazon Prime, Target aims to provide shoppers with additional ease and convenience when it comes to getting their essentials. The membership also comes as an effort to boost sales after Target experienced its first annual decline in over seven years. 

Target also has plans to expand its current store brands, such as Figmint, their newest line of kitchen items, and add an additional 300 stores. So if you don’t live close to a Target now, you may soon. Now you can get those super cute serving plates before they go out of stock or send a last minute birthday gift to your best friend who lives across town.
