At check out, you simply open the Target app and scan the barcode in the Wallet section of the app. The feature is now available for both the iOS and Android versions of the Target app. Wallet uses a barcode scanned at check out that includes payment and applicable coupons. To use, customers have to add their REDcard debit or credit card and then - when they are done shopping and have reached the checkout - just present the barcode in the app for scanning.
