Target Informative - WARNING: ALL BRIDES AND GROOMS - DO NOT REGISTER AT TARGET
REDMOND, WASHINGTON -- If you are getting married, we would like to warn you about registering at Target. Their return policy for registered guests is very misleading and it is falsely advertised. Had we known it would be such a hassle to return the gifts we received from our wedding, we never would have registered with Target. This would have been avoided if the return policy was stated accurately on the registry.
We had almost $500 in returns to Target from our registry due to duplicate gifts. We returned around $300 with some hassle for in-store credit. Even though we had receipts for $75 worth of product, we did not receive any cash on these gifts. Just recently we received a second set of the knives we had registered for - priced around $200. When we tried to return them we were denied credit because they said we were over our $200 return limit. No where on the registry policy does it note that there is a limit on the returns.
So now we are out the $200 that could have been applied toward other gifts. The knives will sit unopened in our cupboard... a waste of money for the guest who purchased it.
You can not expect to get gift receipts on every gift and it is very possible that some of these may get misplaced. Target holds the bride and groom responsible for this, which is absolutely ridiculous. Target's return policy for bridal registries should be closely reviewed and re-evaluated for the guests best interest.
We have complained to Target directly about this through their stores and through their corporate office. All they could offer was a brief apology for our disatisfaction. No one has tried to rectify the situation in any way.
