Target - E-Gift Certificate Redemption
E-Gift Certificates - Complaint
TOPEKA, KANSAS -- BEWARE! My daughters received internet gift cards from Target for Christmas. When we went to redeem them we were told to go to Target.com to activate them. Then the activated bar code would be sent to a smartphone with data which would be scanned by the cashier. Very stupid. There are still people that don't have computers or mobile phones. I've not seen e-gift cards from other stores do this. There is usually a bar code and/or number on the printed certificate. Target can not just type in the # off the printout. Luckily, we had activated internet on their phones the day before and after some time were able to figure out how to do it. NOT EVERYONE HAS INTERNET ON THEIR PHONE. I don't. Could not find a review site on Target.com. With all the bad reviews I’ve read I know why. They don’t care. Most businesses today bend over backwards to keep their customers. I hope they lose the battle for business in this economy. I didn't like Target before and now I'll never go back.
