Chip Card Technology
What is a chip card?
- Chip cards are cards that are embedded with small electronic chips.
- Chip cards represent some of the best security available for payments cards. They have features to help protect you against fraud, and they're difficult to counterfeit.
- When you use one of these cards, a card reader can interact with the chip instead of reading information off a magnetic stripe, and that helps keep your information secure.
- You might also hear people talk about "EMV" cards. EMV is an international standard that both card issuers and retailers use to make chip cards work.
What are Target's plans for chip cards?
- Two big changes are coming. All Target stores are being set up to accept chip cards at checkout, and all Target REDcards are being replaced with chip cards.
- Target is an industry leader in bringing this technology to the U.S. and offering another way to secure pay.
How will this change the way I pay at Target?
- Once Target stores are setup and ready, you'll be able to pay using your chip card.
- Don't have a chip card? Don't worry. Target stores will still be able to read the magnetic stripe on your card.
Will I need to do anything different when I get my new Target chip card?
- When you use your new Prepaid REDcard at a Target store, the chip will be used to read your Card instead of a magnetic stripe.
- You'll also need to use a PIN for every transaction in Target stores instead of signing. The chip in your REDcard validates your Card is authentic, and the PIN helps to validate you as the Card user at chip-enabled terminals. You will receive information about how to set up your PIN when the Card arrives.

An error occurs when a transfer or transaction on your Account is
- Not authorized by you
- Incorrectly posted to your Account
- Not properly reflected on your monthly statement

- You request documentation or additional information about a transaction
All other types of Disputes (e.g. goods not delivered, or goods or services not as promised or damaged) are not considered errors.
What if I have a problem with a transaction that does not constitute an error?
From time to time problems may arise with a product or service you purchase such as
- A product was not delivered or service was not rendered, or
- The product or service is different than expected, or
- Product is defective, or
- A product was returned and you have not received a response from the merchant or credit to your account

What are the transaction limits on my Prepaid REDcard?

Please note that, subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to set additional limits to individual Accounts or to modify limits at our discretion.
FDIC Pass Through Insurance
Are funds in my Prepaid REDcard Account protected by FDIC insurance? (Quick Summary)
When you add money to your Personalized Card, we will place the funds into custodial accounts we maintain for the benefit of Prepaid REDcard Members at one or more FDIC-insured banks (currently Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and American Express National Bank). If one of the banks in which we have placed your funds fails, your funds should be insured by the FDIC up to the maximum per-depositor coverage limit (currently $250,000 in most instances). Funds on the Temporary Card are not insured by the FDIC.
American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc. is not a bank, and FDIC insurance does not protect you against the risk of our insolvency. Also, when you add money to your Personalized Account, it will take us approximately one business day to place your funds into a custodial account. Your funds will not be insured by the FDIC until we deposit them into the account we maintain at the FDIC-insured bank.
More information about FDIC insurance coverage for Account funds is available below.
Are funds in my Prepaid REDcard Account protected by FDIC insurance? (Detailed Explanation)
When you add money to your Prepaid REDcard Account, the funds will be placed by us into one or more custodial accounts (“Custodial Account(s)”) we maintain for the benefit of Prepaid REDcard Account holders at one or more FDIC-insured banks (currently Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and American Express National Bank). These Custodial Accounts will be set up to provide pass-through FDIC insurance. Subject to the limitations set forth below, this means that if a bank holding a Custodial Account fails, you should be insured by the FDIC up to the per-depositor coverage limit then in place (currently $250,000 in most instances). Note that the FDIC insurance maximum applies to all of the funds that you have on deposit with the bank that fails, including funds that you have in deposit accounts with the bank other than your Prepaid REDcard Account-related funds in the Custodial Account.
Your Prepaid REDcard Account funds will not receive the benefit of FDIC insurance before they are placed in one of the Custodial Accounts referenced above. We will place funds into the Custodial Accounts not later than the business day after those funds are credited to your Prepaid REDcard Account. FDIC insurance coverage is contingent upon our maintaining accurate records and on determinations of the FDIC as receiver at the time of a receivership of a bank holding a Custodial Account.
FDIC pass-through insurance protects funds placed on behalf of a Prepaid REDcard Account holder against the risk of loss (up to the then applicable FDIC deposit insurance limits) should any FDIC-insured bank(s) where we maintain Custodial Account(s) fail. FDIC pass-through insurance does not protect you against the risk of our insolvency. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, funds we place in a Custodial Account should be protected from claims by our creditors; however, it is possible that funds that we hold before placement in a Custodial Account will not be protected from claims by our creditors. Even if funds in your Prepaid REDcard Account (whether held by us or held in a Custodial Account) are protected from claims by our creditors, in the unlikely event of our insolvency, it is possible that you will not have access to those funds while court or other legal proceedings are ongoing.
FDIC pass-through insurance also does not protect you against the risk that an attempted funding of your Prepaid REDcard Account might fail to complete or be reversed (for example, if a check that you deliver to us is dishonored or a related credit is reversed after initial honor).
Funds on Temporary Cards are not eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance. When you complete registration online and establish a Prepaid REDcard Account, your Temporary Card funds will be transferred to your Prepaid REDcard Account and be eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance within one business day of establishment of your Prepaid REDcard Account.
