How to Cancel Target Credit Card in 2 Minutes

Are you looking to close your Target credit card because you no longer shop there or want to simplify your finances? Cancelling is easy to do by phone. Here’s what you need to know before and after you cancel your Target credit card.

Key Things to Know Before Cancelling

Before you cancel your Target credit card, keep these key points in mind:

  • Target credit cards are issued by TD Bank. Contact TD Bank if you have any account-specific questions.
  • Safely disposing of the physical card does not close the account. You need to officially cancel it.
  • Consider redeeming any Target Circle rewards or gift card balances first, as they may be forfeited after cancellation.
  • You can transfer any automatic payments set up on the card to a new credit card account.
