According to a statement from a Target company spokesperson, the retailer will no longer accept checks as a form of payment:

“Due to extremely low volumes, we’ll no longer accept personal checks staring July 15. We have taken several measures to notify guests in advance to aid an easy and efficient checkout experience.”

Customers can still send checks through the mail to pay their Target Circle Card credit balance. Target isn't the first retailer to no longer accept checks as payment. According to their websites, Aldi and Whole Foods no longer accept checks as payment at their locations. Recent research suggests that only 1 percent of consumers prefer to use checks for in-store purchases at retail stores or restaurants in the U.S.
