Reader tip! Cindy writes that Target now credits $.05 for each bag you bring in.
I was at Target over the weekend. We took our own reusable shopping bags as we try to do whenever possible. The cashier informed me that for the month of October they are offering 5 cents off your total bill for every reusable bag filled during your purchase (whether you bring your own bags or buy a reusable while in Target). Not a large amount, but nice idea to bring awareness to reducing use of plastic bags and encouraging reusables. I only purchased a small amount of items and filled two bags so I got 10 cents off.
Most of the chain grocery stores got on this bandwagon months ago and also offer free bag recycling. I hope Target will continue to offer this credit beyond October and that even more retailers will join suit!
