$200 Target Gift Card Giveaway!

I’ve always thought that Target’s line of workout clothes – C9 from Champion – was an inexpensive alternative to all the pricey brand names that I can’t afford (see my past reviews of C9 gear HERE, HERE  and HERE). The styles of C9  have mirrored the look of  the more high end brands so (poor) people like me can afford to look good.

About C9:

C9 by Champion is Target’s exclusive athletic apparel collection and offers quality apparel priced under $50. C9 by Champion also has variety of accessories including gym bags, weights, jump ropes and more. In addition to the stylish pieces, C9 by Champion incorporates technical features similar to those found in the high-end fitness brands, such as moisture wicking, ventilation, antimicrobial, and Duo-Dry™ technology, but without the high-end price tag.

Exactly! And, C9 is not just for women – there are kid’s and men’s styles as well.

I have to say, every time I go into Target I browse the running shirts, shorts, tights and bras and see things I like – it’s not just the styles but the colors are bright and inviting too.

Some of my favorite pieces:

C9 by Champion® Women's Cold Weather Run Pullover - Assorted Colors C9 by Champion® Women's Premium Tight - Assorted ColorsC9 by Champion® Women's Full Zip Quilted Front Jacket - Assorted ColorsC9 by Champion® Women's Premium 1/4 Zip Spacedye Pullover - Assorted ColorsC9 by Champion® Women's Seamless Cami Bra - Assorted ColorsC9 by Champion® Women's Woven Running Shorts with Knit Band - Assorted Colors













The good news is that on January 19 (Sunday), Target will have their entire C9 line on sale at 40% off. That means all the already low prices will be CRAZY low.  There are two ways to get the discount:

  • Save in-store using the Cartwheel, Target’s first-of-its-kind digital savings program (40% offer will post to Cartwheel on 1/19)

  2. I love everything cheap and not Nike. Target is my new athletic clothes BFF. I am kicking myself for not buying one of their jackets in December, because now I can't find it anywhere. $200 would be like a WHOLE NEW running wardrobe. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Nearly all my workout gear is from Target's C9 line. I always recommend to everyone that if you don't want to shell out $10-$15/pair on fancy running socks the tabbed C9 running socks are an awesome alternative.

  45. I agree that the C9 line is excellent. I map my trips to Target to avoid the work-out section or I will ALWAYS find something to buy there - who doesn't need more running tights, or a new sports bra? I mean you just can't have enough of these items.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Right now, my favorite pair of running tights are a pair of Old Navy ones that I got for $10! My second favorite pair are my very first pair of 'real' running tight capris and I saved up to buy them because I found them so ridiculously expensive - at the time (not that they aren't now, I am just more aware that you get what you pay for). They are a pair of well worn, need to be retired Nike capris.

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks!

  121. This post came into my feed and brightened my entire day at the hospital: I love Target workout clothing and one of my favorite pieces is a pair of running tights I got there two years ago with a swirl legging pattern that sadly I had to get rid of when I bit it and completely tore up the leg

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love C9 clothing, wish I lived closer to a Target to shop there more regularly! My favorite pair of running shorts were from there, but I lost them at a night race a few years ago (to explain, I was muddy and changed into other clothing and they must have dropped on the ground).

    ReplyDelete
  123. Guess I am stopping at target on sun!! Carol-wv

    ReplyDelete
  124. I have a bunch of Target running gear - capris, tights, shorts, tops - and they last forever!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Those clothes are cute but I'm not going to Target anymore because of the data breach. It was such a headache changing all my accounts, getting a new credit card and just recently being informed that the hackers also may have my email, phone number, and address. I really feel like businesses can do better than this to protect data! /end of rant. Those are cute pink shorts though.

    ReplyDelete
  126. My favorite piece of running gear are my wireless headphones. And I love C9 and Target, so that makes this an amazing opportunity. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Any type of fitness clothing! I feel I am always in need of new stuff (addiction- maybe?). Seriously - at the moment any long sleeved shirt that isn't too heavy. BTW -SO impressed with your lack of attire during frigid conditions! No coat! I am such a wimp. Here in mild MD - I bundle up like it is the Antarctic - coat, tights, wool socks on top of compression socks, etc, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I like to wear my leggings when I go on runs.
