How Long Does Target Hold Pickup Orders?

You can find crazy clearance deals at Target online, in stores, and through the app. The brand also has a wedding or baby registry, where you can earn a 15% completion discount for any registered item.

The store will notify you when your order is ready for pickup, typically within two hours of ordering. However, if the store is busy or you’re ordering during a peak time, it may take longer to complete your order.

To pick up your order, park in the parking spot designated for Drive Up orders (usually near the store entrance), or let the team member know you’re there through the app by typing your number in. Then show the associate your verification code or present one of the following forms of ID:

When you place an online order, the store will put a pre-authorization hold on your card. This is so that the store can make sure it has the items in stock before charging your card. However, the pre-authorization will drop from your account before your order is processed.

If you cancel an online or Drive Up order, Target will refund your payment. In some cases, you might be able to request an extension via the app or the Order details page. Otherwise, the order will be canceled after three days if you don’t come to collect it. This applies to fresh grocery and perishables, as well. This is because the store can only keep these products fresh for a limited amount of time.
