While Target isn't one of the companies phasing out cash transactions, as of Monday, July 15th, Target locations are expected to stop accepting personal checks as a form of payment in their stores nationwide.

Joining other major retail giants like Whole Foods and Aldi, Target will no longer be accepting checks as a payment option. No, it's not because of fake checks that bounce, although this eliminates those issues too, it's in part because of the decline in the usage of checks over the years.

They'll still accept cash, credit/debit cards, digital wallets (Apple Pay, etc.), EBT cards, and more. you can also use a check through the mail to pay your Target Circle Card balance, just not in person.
