Target might be great as a retail store but as their email list grows, so do the number of ad emails they send out, not to mention the host of other offers and other promotions that you might not appreciate cluttering your inbox.

Whatever your reason might be, in this article, we’re going over how you can delete your Target account.

Delete Target account

There are three things you need to keep in mind before you go ahead and delete your account. If you want to delete just your Target account and the Target Circle membership that comes with it, you don’t need to do a lot apart from, you know, deleting your account.

However, if you’re looking to cancel your RedCard membership, it stands different from your main account and requires a separate process for deactivation. And while that may be a separate process, the steps are the same as described below.

Now Target doesn’t have a dedicated delete account option, but there are three ways you can delete your Target account.
