Target's got another big promotion – 10 percent off gift cards for one day only

The Bullseye is offering the discount for one day only.

For one day, Target will sell you $1 for 90 cents.

The retailer is doing a 10 percent off gift cards promotion on Sunday, Dec. 3 – the one time of the year Target discounts those items.

The deal is available in stores or through Target.com, and is part of the company's big weekend deals plan for the holidays. (Apparently twice as many people shop on Saturday or Sunday compared to weekdays.)

The Bullseye did this gift card promo last year too.

Of course, there are some rules

Don't expect a Target gift card free-for-all. There are some rules.

For one, you can only buy up to $300 worth of Target gift cards per household – meaning a maximum discount of $30.

You can't use the gift cards that day – they'll be redeemable starting Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. central time.


How to get something back for gift cards you don't want

This 10 percent off deal only applies to Target gift cards. It doesn't include gift cards from other retailers, or the credit card company-branded gift cards (such as VISA or MasterCard).

Quantities are described as "limited," so it's possible the retailer could end the promotion before the day is up. And no rain checks. 

And gift cards obtained through trade-in or returns or as a minimum purchase promotion aren't included either.

More Target deals

Target is running what it calls "Cyber Week" deals daily through Dec. 2:

And these discounts come on the heels of a Target.com 15 percent off deal for Cyber Monday.

The retailer is promising more weekend deals "timed perfectly" to help people save money on everything they need for the holidays. But they won't be announced until the days leading up to the sale.
