A big reason to consider a store credit card in general, is that they're usually easier to get.

That means people with low credit scores or no credit history stand a better chance of being accepted, and the cards can offer a way to rebuild or establish credit.

But to really benefit, you'll need to use good sense, keep your balance low and pay off your balance every month.

When you get the Target RedCard, you get a number of special perks, such as early word on sales, a 5% discount on all items purchased online or in store, an additional discount on top deals, more convenient shipping, a longer window for returns, the list goes on.

Starbucks fans will be happy to know the 5% discount extends to Starbucks locations within Target.

If you frequent Target, it's definitely worth considering because you could see substantial savings over time.
