Target is the first brick-and-mortar retailer to offer Facebook Credits gift cards in its stores nationwide. This weekend, the retailer will stock the gift cards, which allow Facebook members to purchase digital goods in more than 150 social network games and applications.
Facebook Credits gift cards will be available Sept. 5 at Target stores and Target.com and come in increments of $15, $25 and $50. They can be used to purchase virtual goods or game enhancements for games on Facebook such as Zynga's Farmville and Mafia Wars, CrowdStar's Happy Aquarium, PopCap Games' Bejeweled Blitz, Playdom's City of Wonder and EA Sports FIFA Superstars from Playfish.
"At Target we strive to delight our guests with exciting new products every day, so we're thrilled to be the first retailer to sell Facebook Credits gift cards," says Mark Schindele, senior vice president of merchandising for Target. "With social gaming becoming increasingly popular, Facebook Credits gift cards provide an easy and convenient option for Target guests to purchase virtual goods."
