• In Minnesota, the Star Tribune reports that Target, “while it still will not accept Apple Pay or other third-party mobile payment options in its stores,” now plans to go “the route of Walmart and others who have devised their own mobile wallets inside their smartphone apps.

“Target is rolling out the feature this week to holders of its Redcard credit and debit cards after a soft launch last week. Users are now able to combine their Cartwheel deals, weekly ad offers, as well as the 5 percent discount afforded through Target's branded cards. Then, the app combines all the discounts and the payment into a bar code on the shopper's smartphone that is scanned at checkout.”
