Target Complaint - How to bypass Targets 2 returns without receipt per year limit!
Target does not allow you to return more than 2 items without a receipt per year. This policy drives law abiding, honest, and loyal customers away. HERE IS HOW TO BEAT THE SYSTEM!!! I found out this loop hole because we did a gift registry and at the event many items given to us where bought at target, but the person did not think to give us a gift receipt. We had about 15 items that needed returned to Target. These items were not on the registry nor did we have a gift receipt. Heres what we did:
First I called to see what their policy was concerning items to be returned without a receipt if they were listed on a gift registry. They said as long as it is on the registry and it says that you have received those items, then the will take them all back with out a receipt. They said the registery will act as my receipt. SO...
1. I took the items to work.
2. I photocopied all of the bars codes onto 1 single piece of paper.
3. Went to target to "update my Registry"
4. Walked to the center of Target pulled out my photocopied bar codes.
5. Scanned all the codes and returned the scanner.
6. That night went online and edited my registry stating that I had received all of the items that I had scanned earlier that day.
7. Next day returned to target with items in hand and my printed registry proving that the items were bought using the registry. They returned all 15 items with NO receipt other than my printed registry in hand.
While this sounds like I am 'cheating' or what not. I am not. I am merely doing what Walmart would allow me to do, return items without a receipt and get store credit. I am just doing it in a round about way.
Taking this procedure a step forward:
So next time you go shopping and have several items to returns and lost the receipt? NO PROBLEM, create your own registry. Pretend like you are marrying your high school crush. Put their name in the registry. Heck put whoever you want in the registry, it is printed anyway. Then follow the steps above. Add other items to your registry so as to not look suspicious. Heck go on your pretend shopping spree scanning those things you thought you could never buy, just for fun.
