Target wills top accepting personal checks next week

Target announced it will stop accepting personal checks as a form of payment beginning July 15. The decision comes due to a significant decline in the use of checks by shoppers.

A Target spokesperson explained that the company has notified customers in advance to ensure a smooth transition. They emphasized that Target offers multiple other payment options, including Target Circle Cards, cash, digital wallets, SNAP/EBT, buy now, pay later services, and credit and debit cards.

The Federal Reserve reports a steady decrease in personal check usage over the years. In 2021, only 12 billion checks were written, compared to 20.2 billion in 2015. Target’s website still lists personal checks as an accepted payment method for now, but this will change on July 15.
