A Target GiftCard comes in a few different forms, including physical gift cards and eGiftCards. These gift cards are prepaid with a set amount of money and allow shoppers to redeem this amount for goods and services in Target stores, on Target.com, as well as in places like Target Optical, the Target Pharmacy, or even at Starbucks locations inside of Target stores.
