The company on Tuesday confirmed its one-day only offer on gift cards valued at up to $300, which is available to customers both in store and at

The offer is attractive for anyone planning to give gift cards as Christmas gifts this year, something more than half of American consumers plan to do.

But it's also a great way to save if you're a regular Target shopper, effectively buying yourself some free money.

For example, you could buy a $200 gift card for $180, and then use it to pay for your groceries on a future visit.
