Target Informative - Unfair Return Policy
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- Please note that even if you have a receipt and can show you paid full price for an item, if the item is considered "seasonal or holiday" and is currently marked down, Target will only refund you the marked down price. Target does not care if your receipt shows you paid $20, if the item is holiday or seasonal and is marked down, Target will only give you the current marked down price. I find this amazing. So, if I return something I purchased on sale and then go to the store to return it and it is now full price, shouldn't Target now refund the full price? And in case anyone is wondering, the policy applies even within their 90 day return window.
What is scary about this policy is the fact that any item in the store can technically be considered seasonal (short sleeve shirts anyone?) and/or holiday. Well, mostly anything can be considered seasonal, maybe not holiday.
I am disappointed in this policy and consider it to be a rip off. I have been shopping at Target for 12 years and I spend on average $100 to $250/week there buying household items, clothing, toys, groceries, etc. Well, I am done. I will be going to WalMart and I hate that store, but they have better prices. If I am going to be subject to a lousy return policy, I may as well go shop at a cheaper store and save myself some money.
Bye-Bye Target! It was nice knowing you through the years. You went from being a wonderful, customer service oriented business to a mammoth business that no longer cares about the very people who have made you what you are.
