All the Apple Benefits You Can Get From Target Circle
Every seasoned Target shopper knows the store is full of secret deals: Free gift cards hidden in its weekly circulars, $1 deals lurking by its store entrance, 50% off discounts in the clearance section.
But what many Target shoppers do not know — perhaps not even members of its Target Circle Rewards club — is that the loyalty program also comes with its own set of secret perks. In addition to offering shoppers 1% back on qualifying purchases and access to exclusive deals, Target Circle hooks members up with some pretty spectacular Apple benefits.
Target Circle Apple Benefits: An Overview
Here’s the lowdown: Target has partnered with the tech titan to offer extended free trial subscriptions to its most popular services, including Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness, Apple Music, iCloud+, Apple TV and Apple News+.
Excited? We are too, which is why we’ve broken down every single one of the cool Apple benefits you can get with Target Circle below:
5 Months of Apple Arcade for Free
For the uninitiated, Apple Arcade is a virtual playground with more than 200 games. A subscription gets you unlimited access to ad-free games, which you can play across all Apple devices including your iPhone, Mac and Apple TV. The subscription even comes with a Family Sharing option, which lets you share your subscription with up to five family members.
Apple Arcade normally comes with a one-month free trial (or a three-month free trial with the purchase of an Apple device), after which it costs $4.99 per month. With the Target Circle benefit, however, you get access to Apple Arcade for a whole five months for free.
4 Months of Apple Fitness+ for Free
Apple Fitness+ is the world’s largest library of 4K Ultra HD fitness and wellness classes. The virtual gym offers thousands of video and audio workouts and meditations in 11 different categories, including HIIT, yoga, pilates and core. Workouts last anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes, and include modifications for different fitness levels. Fitness and meditation sessions can be accessed using the fitness app on your Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. Similar to Apple Arcade, the subscription includes the Family Sharing option, which lets you share your subscription with up to five family members.
Typically, Apple Fitness+ comes with a one-month free trial (or a three-month free trial with the purchase of an Apple device), after which it costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year. But with the Target Circle benefit, you get Apple Fitness access for four months for free.

4 Months of Apple Music for Free
Apple Music is the tech brand’s music streaming service. A subscription gets you unlimited, ad-free streaming for more than 100 million songs, 30,000 playlists and live radio. Music is delivered in Spatial Audio, an immersive, theater-like sound that makes it feel like music is coming from all around. An Apple Music subscription also lets you download songs to your library to listen to online or offline.
Usually, an individual subscription to Apple Music comes with a one-month free trial (or a six-month free trial with the purchase of an eligible audio Apple device), after which it costs $10.99 per month. But with the Target Circle benefit, you get Apple Music access for four months for free. Notably, this particular Target Circle Apple perk doesn’t come with Family Sharing, however. If you want to share your account with your family, you’ll need to upgrade to an Apple Music Family Plan.
3 Months of Apple TV+ for Free
Apple TV+ is Apple’s movie and TV show streaming service. A subscription gets you access to a library of award-winning movies, documentaries, top-rated shows and more. You can stream Apple TV+ virtually anywhere, including streaming platforms, smart TVs and online at tv.apple.com. And since it includes Family Sharing, Apple TV+ can be shared with up to five family members.
Typically, an individual subscription to Apple TV+ comes with a seven-day free trial (or a three-month free trial with the purchase of an eligible audio Apple device), after which it costs $6.99 per month. But with the Target Circle benefit, you get Apple TV+ access for three months for free.
4 Months of iCloud+ with 50GB of Storage for Free
iCloud+ is the company’s premium cloud storage subscription. It’s the paid upgrade to the free iCloud plan, which comes with 5GB of storage. iCloud+ comes with extra storage, in addition to special features like a custom email domain, the “Hide My Email” function and iCloud Private Replay. iCloud+ also includes the Family Sharing option, meaning you can share your subscription with up to five family members.
Usually, an iCloud+ with 50GB of storage subscription costs $0.99/month. But with the Target Circle benefit, you get four months of iCloud+ for free.
5 Months of Apple News+ for Free
Apple News+ is the brand’s news subscription service. A subscription gets you access to more than 300 publications, including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, TIME, The Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone. Apple News+ subscription also gets you audio stories, sports coverage from local and premium publications and cover-to-cover magazine access. And, like most of the services on this list, Apple News+ includes Family Sharing for you and up to five members of your family.
Normally, an individual subscription to Apple News+ comes with a one-month free trial, after which it costs $9.99 per month. But with the Target Circle benefit, you get Apple Music access for five months for free.
How to Access Target Apple Benefits
To access all these free services from Apple, you need only join Target Circle. Signing up is free, quick and easy, and can be done in-store, online or via the app. After you’ve signed up, visit the Target Circle+ partner page. Once you’re there, select the Apple deal you’re interested in and hit “Redeem Now”.
You’ll be redirected to the appropriate Apple platform to access the benefit.
You’ll also receive an email from Target that includes your offer code. If you prefer, you can copy and paste the code from your email, and follow the instructions to redeem the code that way.
Note: You need to be on an Apple device, such as a MacBook or iPhone, to unlock the Target Circle Apple offers. It’s also worth writing down the date your trial will end, since Target won’t remind you. If you do not cancel your subscription at the end of your trial, you’ll be billed automatically.
